‘THEY were standing under a tree, each with an arm round the other’s neck, and Alice knew which was which in a moment, because one of them had “DUM” embroidered on his collar, and the other “DEE”. ‘I suppose they’ve each got “TWEEDLE” round at the back of the collar,’ she said to herself.

They stood so still that she quite forgot they were alive, and she was just going round to see if the word “TWEEDLE” was written at the back of each collar, when she was startled by a voice coming from the one marked “DUM”.

‘If you think we’re wax-works,’ he said, ‘you ought to pay, you know. Wax-works weren’t made to be looked at for nothing. Nohow.’  Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll.

Doubles are not always as easy as to tell apart as Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum

or in the case of the butterfly lake on Fraser Island one wing is just slightly a different shape to the other. Not quite the perfect double.

No, you don’t have double vision but these aren’t perfect doubles either.

but a double celebration. A wedding and a christening. Makes the perfect double.

In response to Paula’s Thursday’s Special  where she has found the perfect double.

Feats: 99 Word Flash Fiction

“What’s ya doin’?” John ruffled his grandson’s head.

“I’m doing feats.”  Jason barely glanced up from his game.

“Whatya mean?”

“I’m acquiring feats. If I meet the prerequisite for the feat then I can work at gaining it.”

“I’ve no idea what you’re talking about.”

“Dungeons and Dragons Pa. Don’t you know anything.”

“Yep. I know in my day Feats were Little Feat. Dixie Chicken just brilliant but then the big feat, Feats Don’t fail me now was a mind boggling feat. Every one of the band was showcased at his best. Yep. Those sure were feats to remember.”

In response to the prompt for Charli’s 99 word Flash fiction where she asks:

September 14, 2016 prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story about an amazing feat. What is the accomplishment and why is it amazing? Think small or go over-the-top large. Is it realistic or fantastically exaggerated? Go where the prompt leads.

Respond by September 20, 2016 to be included in the compilation.Rules are here. All writers are welcome!

A sure sign of Spring: Weekly Smile

How can spring not bring a smile to your face particularly when roof romance is afoot. Alerted by Muffin the antics went on throughout the day but ramped up as night fell. Hope this brings you a smile also.
