Friday Fictioneers: 12th July 2019

Today, Rochelle has chosen a picture from Dale Rogerson for our Friday Fictioneers prompt.


The music tempo throbbed out onto the sidewalk and ten year old Nancy stifled a giggle as the power plugs advertising solar chargeable batteries bobbed in time.

Jumping up and down in time with the rhythm, she chanted

One, two, three,
Four, five, six,
Seven, eight, nine,
Reach for the sky,
Ten…………………. relax.

Her mother burst out laughing at her antics.

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.

    The old games are the best, I liked how reaching for the sky mirrored the solar element in the story
