Fandango responded to a Tell a Story challenge and his follow on picture was this from Austin Poon at :
deebcf03-af0a-4bf2-ae35-523f4bc20a85He threw the challenge open, and I thought why not? I’m enjoying doing these at the moment, but as I wasn’t nominated, there won’t be more nominees or another photo following my effort.

The office was eerily silent and suspiciously tidy.

Hugo didn’t have a tidy gene in his body, so none of it made any sense.
Hugo was renown for cryptic messages, and this was no exception.
Marta, his secretary, was concerned and called her superiors.
Director Miles Towie and Jonathan Howarth the CEO stood in the centre of the room and took it all in.
The clues were all on the window cill overlooking the city.
‘I think I’ve got it.’ Miles said.
‘OK. Let’s hear it,’ said the CEO.
‘The screen saver suggests he’s had enough of the city and needs a holiday.
Leaving his watch suggests no time frame for his absence, the headset that nobody listens to him, and his phone that he doesn’t want to be contacted. I’m not too sure about his wallet though. It just has the company credit card in it.’
Marta came in holding a letter in shaking fingers.
‘This just arrived in the internal mail,’ she said, handing it to the CEO.
‘Hm,’ he said.
‘Miles? You’re pretty close in your evaluation. You might like to read this….’
Miles couldn’t believe the two words on the sheet………


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.
