Friday Fictioneers New Year’s Day

It’s Wednesday, but time to prepare my Friday Fictioneers entry for January 1st.
Rochelle Wisoff-Fields is our hostess and Na’ama Yehuda has provided our photoprompt.
‘That is a very important photograph, don’t you DARE delete it!’
George looked at his parents in amazement. They were smiling sappily. Sheesh!
Both remembered the day it was taken.
The camera snapped the shot as Sylvia slipped and Frank caught her.
Over coffee and an iced bun she forgot her embarrassment, and enjoyed his company and kindness. Three weeks later they were married!
George knew the story and saved the picture in the ‘Keep These’ file.

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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.

    George will understand one day! I just noticed on your post’s bio that you lost Maggie recently. I’m so sorry. I know you must miss her as much as I miss my pup. You gave her a happy life and that’s everything in this world. God bless, Di, and comfort you now and in the new year!

    I sometimes wonder how my photos will be viewed when I’m gone! Sweet story πŸ™‚ Happy New Year from another pensioner.

    There’s that chemistry thing again! I’ve always thought that if there’s no “boing” within the first one or two meetings, one should probably just keep moving πŸ™‚

    • I insulted Hubby’s car the first night we met. It didn’t hold it against me though as it would still start first time if I had to drive it. We still don’t know when the slushy stuff started, it was just ‘there’ and I’m certainly not complaining. Happy New Year Linda.

  10. Sometimes the simplest pictures hold the deepest memories! A delight Di.
