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 link under the title 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!

I'm dolled up, doing laundry in the yard for this guy to take pics for
for a special edition -- of what? Little Woman's Day on the Prairie?
139

And from my wonderful friend in Mumbai, how about this take on the pic of the day!!

Am I happy to have a washing machine, lol !

Dimple said...

The picture and your story remind me of early TV commercials (and shows, come to think of it) where Mom was in high heels while vacuuming and doing other house work!

Pat said...

Lol! I, too, noticed now nicely dressed she was for doing laundry. I guess that's how they sold Ivorine back in the day--showing women how attractive they could be while doing household chores like laundry! Good one, Sylvia.

He better be careful or some wet clothes are going to be thrown at him and his camera. I don't blame her for being ticked. You have a wonderful week ahead., Hope your weekend was happy

Peggy said...

lotusleaf said...

Ann said...

when I was little, I helped mum do laundry this way, except we squatted and used OMO. We didn't wear a bonnet.

Team G Square said...

Superb....! Merry Christmas ...

Susan Fobes said...

Ah, someone else saw some negative, but you also sneakily added some funny Sylvia-nicely done!

Linda Reeder said...

This pic reminds me of the ads in the 50's, the Mrs. Clever look in a nice dress, stockings snd pumps, but this is a much older era.

Jim said...

Sylvia, I am betting she will be on the cover. And maybe even make the centerfold!

Ms.Daisy said...

Sylvia,
That is a good take on this week's MM! She is the perfect ideal of the "Little Woman!"

I washed clothes on one of those "graters" once. clothes must have been a whole lot sturdier back in the "olden" days. It shredded my blue jeans!

nimaruichi said...

She does make a pretty picture! Nice take. :)

Lara said...

carol said...

She's saying: Rubba-dub-dub...I'm holding his head down in the tub!
He's saying: Glub. Glub. Glub.

She's thinking: When the DA hears my story, I'm SURE he'll rule it Justifiable Homicide.

Kristin said...

Madeleine said...

If you were to believe soap operas, people doll themselves up for washdays - except they don't usually have washdays.

SouthLakesMom said...

Oh, both yours and your friend's are wonderful! And I love her new header with the NEW CAR gift wrapped! Very clever!

5thsister said...

Cute! I thought her smile looked a little forced. :o)

the wild magnolia said...

Clever take on the pic. Loved it!

the wild magnolia said...

I also love the header drawing. When a friend creates such beauty it is a double blessing.

Dianne said...

I love 'Women's Day on the Prairie'

lizziviggi said...

Ah, thank goodness those days are past! And we think we have it hard... ;-)

Well, a gig's a gig, right? I don't blame her for being put out, though...the outfit isn't exactly high fashion. :) Good one!

sylviamorice said...

This was good! Let's hope that picture-taking was the only thing on that guy's mind!!!
Have a great week. Cheers!

Scott said...

hope said...

Ah, that sounds about right. Probably using that stupid old camera that you had to stand still and hold your breath for. ;)

KB said...

I used to love watching Little House ON The Praire when I was a girl. Cute MM. Have a great week.

G-Man said...

Great one! Oh wait, it's a 2-fer. I loved 'em both.

kaykuala said...

Remembered the Little House on the Prairies. Moving episodes then. Loved your story here.

SandyCarlson said...

That's a lot of fun!

Pooch said...

Perhaps she's a friend of Mama Ingalls? Cute idea!
:)

Suz said...

I hope there never is such a mag

Jinksy said...

That's advertising for you!

Michael G-G said...

Both yours and your friends are great, Sylvia!

Hope you have a good week. We're pretty soggy down here in Portland!

What Can I Say?

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.
