Beyond the Door : writephoto March 2021

I am pleased to learn that Sue’s Write Photo challenge is to continue with KL Caley.
You can join in here
This photo was the very first Sue published for the challenge. It’s kind of quirky, so my take is in a similar vein

Horace was not happy.
He’d been quite specific when he’d put feelers out for the contract, and the winning contender had promised to deliver and install the merchandise within two weeks.
Well it was exactly two weeks to the day, and there it was.
Horace was definitely NOT a happy bunny.
‘Hi Guv’nor,’ the fitter said putting his gear away. ‘Exactly as you ordered. What do you think?’
Trying hard not to hop up and down with anger Horace replied
‘It’s set in the wall too high. How am I supposed to use it? I’m only three feet tall!’
The fitter rubbed his chin.
‘Ah, I can see you would have to watch your step…..’ he laughed at his little joke then noticed Horace was getting more than a little red in the face and going cross eyed….
‘Um, yes. Well. I have a solution………… my brother has a carpentry business and would be happy to make you a small set of steps to get in and out……………’
Horace sighed.
‘How much and how long?’
‘ About two weeks, and probably the same as the cost of the door.’

 

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.

    • I guess it happens……….. we put in a back door and discovered a much larger drop to the drive than we anticipated. Hubby made a step, his first effort at bricklaying, and we called it Little Bedrock!
