First Line Friday -November 24th, 2017

Dylan’s turn this week:

Your line for this week is:

Below them, the dark streets beckoned with crimson light.

These pavements echoed with a million footsteps, each treading the path to relief, consolation and comfort.
The occupants found the choice of lighting embarrassing for their trade. Many had started petitions to get the lamps changed to a more subtle hue, but the authorities had refused.
They either had a sense of humour or didn’t see the irony in naming Haw Street after the trees felled to make room for it.
Saying that though, business was good.
However, most was done by day, where expert fingers relieved stress, muscle fatigue and joint misalignment with chiropractic and osteopathic manipulations, herbal remedies, or just a sympathetic ear as patients lay back on a comfy couch.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
