FFfAW Challenge – 179th

This week’s photo prompt is provided by Yarnspinnerr

No entry eh? We’ll see about that!
I’m quick and canny. Just got to pick my moment and wait for the door to open.
I don’t go for this thing called scheduled protocol or personal invites.
I just know that beyond that door is a banquet for all, and I want first pickings.
Ah. What’s this? Two people are approaching the entrance.
Time to look sharp, and wait until they are being admitted.
My four legs can run faster than it takes for the door to close, then I’m in!
They don’t call it a rat run for nothing.

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.
