Friday Fictioneers 31st May

Our photoprompt from Rochelle this week is by Susan Eames.
Quite a bit comes to mind with this!
‘Hi Honey! Just checking in.’
‘Hi love. How’s it going?’
‘Amazing! This new site is excellent, but there’s a drawback.’
‘How so? You’re in paradise!’
‘Yeah, right. I’m stuck up a tree.’
‘What? Picking coconuts I hope!’
‘Nope. It’s the only way I can get a decent signal to call!’

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 an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. 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.

  1. Hi Di,

    You’re linked.



  2. What happened to the other 50 words if I might be allowed to ask -and forgiven.

  7. Dale says:

    I fear from this day forward, we shall always be searching for reception…

  8. gahlearner says:

  10. That really does sound like paradise – a place where phone users have to go up trees rather than wandering blindly along the street!

    My go at Friday Fictioneers!

  11. Abhijit Ray says:

    He has a genuine problem of receiving signal. On the plus side, he can also eat coconuts.

  12. James McEwan says:

    will he come down when the battery runs out? Fun finish.

  13. Margaret says:

    Cute story. I wonder how long before he gets tired of climbing trees for a signal.

  14. Reblogged this on pensitivity101 and commented:

    I’m reblogging this as my flashback post to 29th May last year.
    Bet this is the kind of ‘isolation’ none of us would mind at the moment.
