When she offered to direct him to the font of all knowledge, he had not expected this.  What made him really mad though was the fact that the place he was looking for wasn’t shown.
He stomped back to his car and got in. The satnav gleamed at him from the dash.
Fat lot of good it was out here in the middle of nowhere. No damn signal, hence his request for directions.
He turned on the ignition, did a perfect 180 and drove back the way he’d come.
What he needed was an old fashioned compass and a road map!

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.

    The CLICK is not working for me either. I think that I will only have ‘ping’ options from now own.

    Enjoyed the story. Those ‘devices’ never tell me what I want to know. I still love a good old fashioned map!

    Thanks for participating.
