Friday Fictioneers 11th March

Rochelle Wisoff-Fields hosts the Friday Fictioneers photoprompt challenge. This week’s picture is provided by Lisa Fox.
It had seemed a brilliant idea as the building protected them from the elements as they worked.
Day after day they toiled to get their task finished, secreting materials and tools as and when they could be gathered. Within four weeks, they were ready.
The doors were flung open to an awaiting cheering crowd, which soon turned to mocking laughter and shaking heads.
Size matters, and they couldn’t get their invention out to try it.

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.

    Thinking ahead mattters too, I guess

    • True. My uncle’s neighbour had a music room built to house his Hammond organ. When they came to move, they couldn’t get it out, so it was sold with the house.

  2. Haha! Love it, next time use a tape measure lads!

    I feel their pain. I bought a desk without measuring my space – why? I thought it was way smaller… sigh.

    Oh! Bless, we had a doctor who built a boat, yes a boat in his back garden but it was too big to get out through the garage…honest it’s true šŸ’œšŸ’œ

  8. Clever and sounds like something Iā€™d do (have done) in my exuberance to complete a project! šŸ˜‰

  9. Bill says:

    Fun story. Reminds me of the TV series, “NCIS” and how Gibbs got his boat out of the basement. Well done.

  10. James McEwan says:

    An old-fashioned comedy of errors. They were so engrossed in their project they forgot the size of the doors.Love it.

  11. Liz Young says:

    Reminds me of NCIS and Gibbs’s never-to-be-floated boat!

  12. Heather Musk says:

    I really enjoyed this, thank you. As the story progressed I was picturing the A-Team in my head. Unfortunately, this plan just didn’t come together šŸ˜‚
