Hello and welcome to my blog!
After you have read my story please feel free to scroll through and read more.
This week's photo prompt comes from the camera of Mary Shipman. Thanks as always to https://rochellewisofffields.wordpress.com/ for hosting Friday Fictioneers - an online group of writers who post flash fiction each week. To read their stories go to Rochelle's blog - after leaving a comment on here, of course!
I will be absent in May, visiting family in Canada, so will not be blogging for a couple of weeks. Meanwhile, I leave you with this story.
SAUCE FOR THE GOOSE
The General Store had hardly changed since Mason’s grandfather’s day, and that was the way he liked it. The only piece of modern machinery Mason would allow anywhere near him was his beloved motorbike.
Betty came home from visiting her mother one afternoon to find Mason tinkering with the engine in her kitchen, but he refused to move it. “It’s raining – I can’t work on it outside.”
The next morning he opened the Store to be confronted by laundry festooning the rafters. “Take it down!” he yelled.
“It’s raining,” Betty replied calmly, “And you won’t buy me a tumble dryer.”
