Sunday Writing Prompt- “Choose an Antique” ; 21st April

The challenge:
Pick one or more objects in the photo to fashion a story or poem around.
Daisy and Donald were two ceramic figures dating back to the 1930s.
Donald thought he looked very dashing with his mask and that The Lone Ranger TV show had stolen his idea.
Daisy laughed and said he was given it to hide his natural squint which came about during his firing.
Daisy herself wasn’t perfect either, having a bad touch up job on her left shoulder making her jacket look like a patched lawn.
‘What do you make of this then?’ Donald asked, standing in front of a spoked wheel.
‘I always fancied riding a uni-cycle. Gonna join me?’
‘It’s not an uni-cycle you idiot. It’s a penny farthing. Haven’t you seen the rest of it?’
Donald looked round and cast his masked eyes upwards.
‘Oh my!’ he said. ‘Not a chance of getting you to ride pillion on it then.’

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.
