Tale Weaver – #291 – Flag – 3rd September.

Michael’s challenge: 

This week consider the word FLAG.
You can use it as a noun as in: “We all stood proudly beneath the flag a symbol of our belonging.”
As a verb: “His behaviour flagged him as a liability to our cause.”
Set your mind thinking on this prompt and go have fun.

The flag signalled the start of the race and the two boats sailed downstream in unison.
Other than the colours, they were identical in size and design.
At the finishing line, the white boat just tipped the blue to take first place.
The cheers rose up from the ranks and everyone congratulated the winner.
The loser removed his boat from the water, and stamped on it.
‘Why did you do that?’  his opponent asked.
‘Because second place isn’t good enough, and I could hardly do that to your boat as it won. Congratulations.’
Picking the white boat up, the winner offered it to his brother.
‘You have this one then, and we’ll make another together, then try them out tomorrow.’
The seven year old twins walked home arm in arm, always friends, always sharing.

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.
