Friday Fictioneers 25th November

Rochelle Wisoff-Fields is our hostess for the Friday Fictioneers photoprompt and this week’s picture is provided by Sandra Crook.

I remember more green, she said.
Me too, but the pub is still the same.
The pink paint is new………
The beer’s the same though.
Bet the hot pot’s not.
Hmmm……….. steak and kidney pie.
Nah, I preferred the crab, freshly caught that morning.
Best fish and chips on the South Coast.
I still remember more green though.
Maybe they moved our table and we’re looking at it from a different angle.
Maybe………… or perhaps just tired eyes. It was fifty years ago.

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.

    I think that time works on memory to exaggerate the positive and minimize the negative…

    She sounds the complaining kinds 🙂

  9. Dear Di,

    Time has a way of coloring our memories, doesn’t it? Nicely done.

    Shalom,

    Beautifully done. And yes, time and age alters our perceptions. Sad.

    I can relate to this…50 years is a long time. Memories like to play tricks on us.

    Human memory is such an interesting subject. Nicely done.
