Class Reunion Rodeo #It’s Six-Sentence Story Thursday Link-Up

Image contains: Abbie, smiling.

This summer, my high school class of 1980 will hold a combined reunion with the class of 1981 in July to co-inside with the annual Sheridan Wyo Rodeo. I’ve never been a fan of the rodeo, but I liked the parade as a kid. One of the reunion activities will be to attend the rodeo. There’s also an ice breaker, a golf tournament, and a late-night bar crawl during the street dance following the rodeo. The icebreaker sounds good, since it’ll be catered by a local Mexican restaurant, but the bar crawl I could do without. I’m definitely getting old.

Saying No to Lucy #It’s Six-Sentence Story Thursday Link-Up

Image contains: Abbie, smiling.

It was just like in that old Beatles song. Here I was, on a river boat, surrounded by tangerine trees with a marmalade sky overhead. Yellow and green cellophane flowers hung above me. The girl with kaleidoscope eyes called, but I knew better than to answer. I wasn’t about to follow her down to the bridge by the fountain where rocking horse people ate marshmallow pies amid the tall flowers. I turned away and waited for this to end.

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

Plowing Snow #It’s Six-Sentence Story Thursday Link-Up

Image contains: Abbie, smiling.

Last weekend, we must have gotten a mountain of the white stuff. On Sunday morning, I woke up at 2 a.m. to hear my snow removal guy using his power shovel, then his truck outfitted with a plow, to clear snow from my driveway, ramp, and sidewalks. It continued to snow throughout the day on Sunday and into the night. So, my guy came back on Monday, but not quite as early. Since more of the white stuff arrived Monday night, he came back bright and early Tuesday morning to, as they say in England, “have another go.” Winter can be a never-ending cycle during which you feel like you’re forever plowing snow.

Never Judge a Boy by His Birth Mark #It’s Six-Sentence Story Thursday Link-Up

Image contains: Abbie, smiling.

“Mary Ellen, what do you mean you’re pregnant?”

“You know what I mean, Stuart.”

“But…but…you’re only sixteen, and I’m only seventeen. What were you thinking?”

“Well, when I first saw that cute birth mark on your nose, I thought you were a good guy, that you’d want to marry me and we could raise the baby together. I guess I was wrong.”

Auditioning for The Boyfriend #It’s Six-Sentence Story Thursday Link-Up

Image contains: Abbie, smiling.“Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah” I sang years ago. But I wasn’t performing in a Disney movie. I was auditioning for my high school’s production of The Boy Friend. Besides having us sight-read music from the show, our director asked us each to sing something familiar. I hoped to be cast in the lead role, but instead, I ended up in the chorus. Maybe with better eyesight and dancing skills, I might have even gotten into a Disney production.

Thanks to Girlie on the Edge for inspiring the above. The idea is, as usual, to write a poem or story of no more and no less than six sentences, using the prompt word, “zip,” at least once. To participate in her blog hop, click here.
