Friday Fictioneers: 11th February

Rochelle Wisoff-Fields hosts the Friday Fictioneers photo challenge.
This week our prompt is supplied by Bill Reynolds.
Sharon tried hard to hide her dismay and then anger.
Tim was always so enthusiastic about his projects, but this was the last straw.
With all the will in the world, she could not see it as a camper van despite him saying he could make solar panels out of the old grill, a sink unit out of a tatty white trunk and she shuddered at what he had in mind for the rusted balls.
She rang the scrap yard and got $1000 for it.
Tim would be gutted but he could do a lot with the cash.

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.

    As women, sometimes we have to take the lead from those pesky men. Especially when it comes to their hoarding of things like old trucks!

    Sometimes much depends on past experiences. Interesting.

  9. James McEwan says:

    Sensible girl and a great deal. I liked how she was the more practical and with no trust in his plans.

    I wish I had her courage. We have three project cars in our backyard and he scours auction sites every night. Can’t help himself.
    Great story and well done!
    Best wishes,

    You have to admire his enthusiasm and can-do attitude. But Sharon’s a match for him. Love this. Rings true.
