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!

This is your idea of the perfect honeymoon place? An ocean and an iron fence?
What's for food?
Food? I thought we were gonna live on love!

And from my wonderful friend in Mumbai!!

Between phone taps, and leaking embassy cables, for a minute I thought Julian was after pigeons. So glad we overflew Sweden. OK. Now Tell.

Hope you all have had a wonderful Christmas! I surely have! As some of  you know, my oldest daughter, Robyn, whom I hadn't seen in seven years, surprised me with a Christmas visit and I've had such an incredible holiday! She's here for another couple of days, so I may be slow to get to your blog, but I will!! Have a great week and a very Happy, Prosperous New Year!!!

Love your micro fiction. And what a wonderful Christmas surprise you had!

Pat said...

What a wonderful Christmas present for you, Sylvia! I'm sure it's been a great holiday for you.

Your MM reminds me of that oldie, "All I Need is the Air that I Breathe and to Love You." Ha--Romanticists run into Reality after they are married!

I have a feeling that there will be several "bird-dump" MMs this week, as exemplified by my husband's contribution!

Good one, Sylvia. I've let Microfiction slide while I was away and sick. Now that I'm home and getting better, I'll have to try for next week.

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.
