Shifting Gears #It’s Six-Sentence Story Thursday Link-Up

Image contains: Abbie, smiling.Years ago, when I was single and worked as a registered music therapist in nursing homes and other senior facilities, all the gears on my father’s old pick-up truck quit working, one by one. So, inspired by The Beach Boys, I came up with this little ditty.

First gear, doesn’t work.

Second gear, doesn’t work.

Third gear, doesn’t work.

Uh-oh!

Thanks to Girlie on the Edge for inspiring the above with her six-sentence story prompt for this week. If you’d like to participate in her blog hop, click here.

By the way, for those of you who use the National Library Service for the Blind and Print Disabled, The Red Dress is available for download from their site here. No matter how you read it, please be sure to review it wherever you can. That goes for all my books. Thank you for stopping by. Stay safe, happy, and healthy.

New! The Red Dress

Copyright July 2019 by DLD Books

Twenty-five years later, Eve, a bestselling author, is happily married with three children. Although her mother suffers from dementia, she still remembers, and Eve still harbors the guilt for giving the dress away. When she receives a Facebook friend request from her old college roommate and an invitation to her twenty-five-year high school class reunion, then meets her former best friend by chance, she must confront the past in order to face the future.

  1. Your Six made me smile, Abbie 🙂
    Funny how we can find the humor in past events that were not so humorous while we were experiencing them, lol
    Reminded me of a time the clutch cable broke in my car rather far from home, on a Sunday, no service stations open. It was an adventure for sure!

    1. I’m glad to hear that. I’ve never been able to drive, but I remember my mother complaining when she had to drive my grandmother’s car, which had automatic transmission. She was used to driving a car witha stick shift. So, I believe drivers should have a choice. Thank you for reading and commenting.
