I own this station. I bought it fair and square even if it was a bankruptcy sale. The first thing I’d do is get rid of the voice. “Mind the gap” annoyed me immensely.  Perhaps I’d charge a premium if trains wanted to stop at my station. No, I’ll swap it for Mayfair.

Thanks to Sonya for prompting three line tales.

I noticed the prompt for this week before I took the dogs out for their morning walk and when I saw this plant, seemingly glowing I had to pull out the phone and take a photo. Perfect for glowing I thought.

Until I thought of New Years Eve a couple of years back. We sat out on the marina in the dark waiting for the fireworks. Our glow sticks gave the only light around

Perfect for a prompt of glow I thought until

I thought that the best glow you can see is the glow of happy faces. Faces that light up

full of the joy they feel inside.

I have discovered that Amaryllis cannot withstand wind and heavy rain. I had no choice but to bring them inside.

Waiting: Friday Fictioneers

Screen Shot 2017-10-18 at 7.59.11 PM

photo prompt @ Sandra Crook

He told me to meet him under the oak tree. Sit at one of the tables and wait. All the others were empty. I sat. I waited. How long did he expect me to wait? Inconsiderate: my time was also precious. Too often I’d waited. If the cafe had been open I might have waited longer. I wasn’t going to sit there like a dog waiting for my master to turn up. The oak tree looked like it was crying but perhaps it was reflecting my tears. I’d had enough. I was gone.

Lucky as “the tree fell and obliterated” the headlines read.
