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!

Dignified, proper, framed in gold, first politician in her family! He'd been
found in a creek with his throat cut. Easier then than now!

138 Letters

And from my friend in Mumbai!!

International Womens' Day, tomorrow, and she finally did in death what she couldn't, in life... Run away from him. With the gold trimmings.

Oooh...ZZZing!! I haven't seen this side of you before, Sylvia. :^)

I sense something dark coming. Good one! Have a great week.

Judy Sheldon-Walker said...

Ouch! That's not an easy ending.

Janie said...

Whoa, that's a little gruesome! But he does look like a politician, definitely.

Ho, what did you say? I endorse it!

Sounds like an episode of Law n Order. Nicely done Sylvia,

Wishing you a wonderful week.

How sad and tragic. YOu could have a field day spinning that web. Fits really well! I'd read the book.

Melanie Sherman said...

Oh dear. Wonder if he owned shares in the company building the dam.

Love that gold frame.

As to your comment in my blog about needing another box for Cinders. It's actually 2 small book/utility boxes of 3 shelves each to make a total of 6 cosy cubby holes for the kitties.
So far, it has never been full house, max occupancy is 5. Have a photo of it somewhere.

Difficult one ............

Linda Reeder said...

Great job. At least he died quickly. Now political death is by a thousand cuts.

magiceye said...

rings so true!

SandyCarlson said...

Perhaps the cut improved him!

Great post, friend.

forgetmenot said...

Short and sweet, but tells the whole story. Nicely done. Mickie

anthonynorth said...

Now that was a great ending.

Lisa Ricard Claro said...

Dianne said...

well done

Susan Fobes said...

Woa, Sylvia... Too dark for that wonderful spring banner-LOL!

Akelamalu said...

Oh if only we could get rid of politicians as easily these days! :)

jabblog said...

Both so good, if a little worrying;-)

Peggy said...

Sylvia;

Oh wow, great MF. Very very clever and unexpected.
I was away this past weekend and just got back
Had to come over and ready your story .
...and I love the header. I love the way it changes!

Michael G-G said...

The standard this week is phenomenal. Both of these are top-notch (and I like this dark side of yours, Sylvia! Perhaps because I'm still recovering from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest?)

Your new header is beautiful, as always.

Have a great week.

Lynette Killam said...

Two great takes from you and your friend, Sylvia! We writers sometimes come up with tales that even surprise ourselves, dont we? Loved these...LOL!

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.
