100 Word Wednesday: Week 132

Nice to see this challenge from Bikurgurl in my reader today as it’s been a while and I’ve missed it.
Designed to improve and enhance the lifestyles of the over 45s, they decided to give it a go having got into a rut and badly needed a change.
Following the signs, they drove up the ramp expecting the car parking area to be packed.
The place was deserted like something out of the Twilight Zone.
They parked up and made their way to the entrance.
It was chained and padlocked,  a huge sign saying
‘CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE DUE TO CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC’
The pair looked at each other and grinned.
‘Think of the money we’ve saved!’ they said in unison.

 

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.

    Hehe! Looking on the bright side! I noticed that our expenditures are way down… Sparky is not stopping at Starbucks or McDonald’s for coffee and we haven’t been to Goodwill at all! The money is just piling up (ha! sort of but not really)!
