Friday Fictioneers: 7th June 2019

Details of the Friday Fictioneers challenge hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields can be found here

The pots at number 345 had been the talk of the neighbourhood.
Like the occupant, they were flourishing.
It wasn’t just the plants that were giving her a new lease of life, more the owner of the jacket hanging on the post at the bottom of the steps.

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.

  1. Dear Di,

    Sometimes it’s the simplest things that give pleasure. And some not so simple. 😉 Nice piece in half the word count. 😀



  2. Colline says:

    So much of the story said with so few words. Nicely done.

    Hope he didn’t leave his wallet in the jacket

  4. trentpmcd says:

    Funny, that’s a detail I missed. Oh well. Usually people don’t like to advertise those things, but I’m sure they have their reasons…

  5. The jacket at number 345 will be the new talk of the neighbourhood I suspect!

    My go at Friday Fictioneers!

  6. Sadje says:

    Oh well-spotted!

  8. So few words. So much said! 🙂

    Good eagle-eyed spot Di, no wonder the neighbourhood is gossiping! 🙂

  10. msjadeli says:

    Good for her. Nice story, Di.

  11. DB McNicol says:

    Awesome! I admit to completely missing the jacket when I wrote my story. The stairs captured my attention and focus.

  12. pennygadd51 says:

    Lovely story. Romance can certainly put a fresh spring in the step!

  13. granonine says:

    Yay! You saw the jacket too 🙂

  14. A very nice story and in so so few words. I didn’t see the jacket!

  15. Archon's Den says:

    I’m only going to leave half a com…. 😉

  16. Perhaps it is his calling card. Very observant.

  17. Clever, I completely missed the jacket, whereas he obviously didn’t!

    Oooh! I love where you took this, Di!
