MicroFiction Monday


>Susan at Stony River Farm hosts Microfiction Monday. She posts a picture and you compose a story in 140 characters. You can click on the icon to get further instructions. To help you along she has posted a wonderful link that counts your characters for you! How great is that! You can get the counter at Design 215.

This meme is easy and it's fun! Thanks, Susan for hosting.
And here's the picture for the day!



Climbing onto the crate, he bleated, Friends, Romans, uh, billie goats, lend me your ears. I come to bury Farmer Brown, not to praise him!

Pam said...

I got a big chuckle out of your delightful short story, Sylvia. I enjoy your wonderful sense of humor.

That old goast does have the look of a not so trustworthy politician about him.

OMG a preaching goat LOL I love it and I wonder by bury if he is actually going to bury him or bury him with some other ploy. Love it. :) Have a great Monday :)

Suz said...

christopher said...

Now that's funny! Maybe you should write some stories for children.

Sylvia K said...

Christopher, actually I have written and published some stories for children back when mine were young. It was fun.

Your take on the same picture is completely different from Susan's or Kitty's. Interesting angle, Susan!

thank you for the feedback!

Sylvia Morice said...

I laughed out loud at this one! Great story.

michael bird said...

Ah, Billy, Billy, Billy, Billy. Having one had a herd of goats, must admit I miss them. We much enjoyed their antics, their company, and their yummy milk.

Susan at Stony River said...

EEEEK! Sylvia, my maiden name is Brown! Oh no -- Daddy?

ROFL

A Shakespearean goat is a neat twist, I love it!

juliana said...

goat bard? well, nothing seems impossible ;)
you made me laugh, thank you :)

hope said...

This one made me smile. :)

(If you can skip the part where I still hear that Spanky & the Gang speech, where Spanky gets caught in a hail of pea shooters as he gives that speech).

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
