Red Alert

The sister of Dennis 
Was quite a menace 
The terror of dolls 
And kittens alike


Oh my!” said Aunt Mae
Filled with dismay
Five minutes to curtain call
Now how do I stall?


She told the painter
To clean up when done
She would have him fired
If he wasn't her son!

Thank you Grandma for another challenge!! She calls it succinctly yours. I call it fun. She provides the photo and we are allowed to use 140 words/characters to tell the story. The bonus word this week is "menace".

She Could Handle it!

Sunday, March 23, 2014

Cake decorating
She dabbled a bit
A cute cupcake?
She could handle it



A child is filled with glee
At the magic year of three
You bounce them on your knee
And make their world sugary..


Part two

Then you send them home
To unsuspecting parents
Who you warned to behave
While they were coming up
But they wouldn't think of it!


Grandma offers a weekly challenge called succinctly yours. She offers a photo and our challenge is to provide a story befitting her illustration using 140 characters/words or less. To make the challenge just a bit more interesting she tosses in a bonus word; to use or not to use... This week our bonus word is "dabble". Well, how low can you go?

Have a fantastic and blessed weekend!!

Muddy Shoes

Sunday, March 16, 2014

He was loath to admit 
It was time to quit 
Racing not his forte 
Especially today 

16 words 76 characters


He loathed the blues
And wouldn't choose
To be in his shoes
His muddy shoes



He was loathe to submit
He couldn't quit
So he sucked it in
And tried to grin
It couldn't rain
Every day
Could it?

Grandma hosts a weekly challenge called succinctly yours. She provides a photo and offers us the opportunity to see "how low we can go"? Well what's keeping you?
