FFfAW – The Garden Battle

The most enjoyable hours of my day are working in my garden. I love hoeing the weeds, mulching the plants and watering. It helps me calm down from my stress filled day of work.

Today, I came out to my vegetable garden and bugs had taken over my potato plants. I armed myself for battle. A bottle of soapy detergent to be sprayed on each plant. The bugs will run for their lives and I will have delectable potatoes to eat this fall.

It's not easy being a gardner but I enjoy every minute of it, even battling the bugs.

FFfAW – Online Dating

He saw my picture and profile on the Internet. Yes, the dating site that everyone has been talking about.

Me, I was apprehensive to get on this site. Surely I can get a man without having to announce my looking for one for all the world to see! I was so embarrassed. He saw my picture and wrote me right away.

“Hey there! I saw your picture on the Internet and I'm looking for a girl like you!”

Was this guy some kind of nut? Could he be an ax murderer or pedophile or maybe a felon just out of prison? I was scared to meet him but he told me to meet him in the Chinese Restaurant underneath the red lantern.

I walk in cautiously. I look for a tall man with dark hair and glasses. I hold my breath. What am I getting myself into?

I walk up to a man that looks at me shyly and shakes my hand.

“Hi, I'm Conner. I'm happy to finally meet you.”

I smile, happy inside.

FFfAW – My Grandma’s

My grandma's house was in the middle of downtown Abbyville. It was so much fun to visit her because I could walk out the door and only go a few hundred feet to go shopping.

My grandma wasn't happy how the little city grew around her house, invading her privacy. She was right. It got worse when they built a Captain Jack's about 75 feet away. The parking lot came right up to her living room window.

In a kind act, Captain Jack's gave my grandma a free meal weekly for the rest of her life. She gladly forgave them.

FFfAW – My Friend, Marley

Marley is one of the nicest dogs I have ever met. I walk by him every single day and he always wags his tail and acts genuinely happy to see me. It's a pleasure to walk by this yard and see “Marley.” Of course Marley isn't his real name, it's just the name I call him because he is such a happy, lovable guy. And, he always loves the treats I bring him.

As I walked by Marley today, a litter of puppies came bouncing out rambunctiously. I had to laugh when I realized that my Marley is actually Marlena.

FFfAW – The Scarecrow Lady

They called her old lady Malone and according to the neighbor kids she was mean as they come. “Stay away from her house,” they would say, “She'll throw rotten apples at you.”

I wasn't about to go near her house because I didn't want to be bombed by rotten apples.

I didn't understand what made her so mean until Bobby Jo told me she had a son that use to be bullied until he finally took his own life. She is bitter toward kids because of it. Can't say that I blame her. I would put up a scarecrow too.

FFfAW – A New Life

Mortimer had been with the firm for forty years, becoming one of the top attorneys. But, he became bored with his life.

Standing in the law library he becomes temporarily blinded by a bright shining light coming in through the window. A large apparition stands before him. Mortimer shrieks and falls backward consumed by fear.

“Mortimer. I am Micah and I am here to give you a message.”

“Me, a message?” He can barely speak.

“You are going to go and help those who are less fortunate.”

“Why…why…why me?”

“You are being given the chance to redeem yourself from the years you charged more than you were worth and for hours you didn't work, stealing money from hard working people.”

As the apparition faded away, Mortimer found himself in a third world country surrounded by starving people. Mortimer was in the midst of helping feed and care for these people.

As a small boy reached his arms up to Mortimer to be picked up, Mortimer realized he has finally found his happiness and his home.

FFfAW – Beginning of the End

Each of the scientists carefully examined the alien bodies under their microscopes. These tiny bodies had been found lying in clusters near their crashed ship.

Suddenly, one of the scientists jumped up and shouted.

“No! I cannot believe this!”

The other scientists stopped working and rushed over to the scientist.

“What? What have you found?” they urgently asked.

“These are the organisms that began life on earth. The same organisms that evolved into what we are today, humans.”

“How can that be?” asked the other scientists, “Do you think that another planet in the universe is evolving into becoming a planet like earth?”

The worried scientist answer grimly, “What I believe is they have come to earth to begin evolving again.”

“But, why? Why would they need to come back and start evolving again?”

“It means, life on earth as we know it, is going to end.”
