FFfAW Challenge – 178th

This is my effort for this week’s challenge

Our photo prompt is provided by Ted Strutz.

It was the same every day, always too late to catch the first ferry and had to wait in line for the next. The crossing took twenty minutes, loading and unloading another twenty each, so that was an hour.
How he wished there was some other route he could take instead of just sitting here waiting with the rest of the regular crowd.
Hello? What’s this?
The guy in the HGV had opened the back of his truck and was handing out free sodas!
‘It’s OK,’ he said cheerfully. ‘I got the OK from management to do this. Good PR they said.
Sorry I can’t offer spirits, but a cool drink on a hot day has surely got to lift ours. Cheers everyone!’

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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.
