Tell a Story : Pinched 2

Suze over at suziland did a take on the same picture as my Pinched #1 post and kindly provided another photo with an open challenge.

Well, here I am, and here it is

Ribe river viking ship, Denmark

Dick and Tom were in the doghouse.
They should have read the small print, going by the old adage that if something sounded too good to be true, it probably was.
Melissa and Mabel were still seething, and hadn’t spoken to their menfolk for over an hour. Any other time, the guys would have been glad of the peace and quiet, but this hostile silence was choking them to such an extent that they were afraid to speak to each other and invoke the wrath of the Mighty Ms.
They had been having such a good time, enjoying the sights at the start of their retirement, something they had always promised to do together before they got out their slippers and pipes, or wellies and spades to work in their gardens.
The ad had promised a cruise on the river in a viking ship, and the girls had been all for it  until they arrived to board. They had no choice as it was their only means of getting back.
Both men knew that as soon as they were in their hotel rooms, the sparks would fly. Better there than on the boat though, as that may well have ended up as a Viking Burial at sea.


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.

    now I can see this happening! George wants to plan our next “vacation” and now all I can see is this! roflmao

    • Ha! Might I suggest you try a narrow boat boating holiday? You don’t even have to go anywhere, just enjoy relaxing on the river. We loved the life, and you meet a wonderful set of people.
