FFfAW – Being Watched

The government has hidden tiny camera “eyes” everywhere. There isn't anywhere you can go and not be seen.

“It is for the safety of the people,” they argued. Some people being okay with that, others, not so much.

“I don't want to be watched everywhere I go. It is taking away my freedom and my privacy!”

“I feel better knowing they are keeping an eye on everything and finding terrorists before they have a chance to hit. I have nothing to hide.”

“I don't have anything to hide either, but you can't even go to church without being watched.”

They both happen to look up at the dome ceiling where two tiny cameras are placed, busy scanning the entire cathedral.

FFfAW – Cloning

Darian and Slade's work was top secret. Their “secret project” was being conducted in the basement of the “Science of Tomorrow” building. Their project was that of cloning a dinosaur.

After years and years of trials and errors, they finally succeeded in cloning a dinosaur using a crocodile. Sure, they had to clone one of the smaller dinosaurs, but it was a dinosaur, nonetheless.

As it grew, they met the problem of where to house it. Should they continue to hide it? If so, how would they hide it? It may not be an offspring of the largest dinosaur but it wasn't the smallest either.

After wading through months and months of red tape and much ado with the government, Darian and Slade finally opened up a Dinosaur Zoo. The two scientists will continue cloning dinosaurs until they have all the Dinosaurs that have ever roamed this planet.

Their work will be funded by this zoo. Their real challenge will be, keeping dinosaurs from getting into the hands of the public for breeding and resale.

FFfAW – Unusual Canvas

Marcie is an artist. She always wanted to be an artist of a different kind. She didn't want to be one of the “run of the mill” artists. One day she came driving up to my house to pick me up in her magnificent piece of art. Her car!

We drove all over town showing off her “work of art.”

Marcie entered her car into the Gallery of Modern Art and sold it for a cool $100,000.

She has become a famous modern artist, painting cars for wealthy people. We fondly remember her first big canvas, a 1962 Ford Fairlane.

FFfAW – Beachfront Movie

 

At each sunset, we sat on the deck of our beach front property at Strong Man's Cove, watching the magnificent colors glimmer off the ocean glass.

We jumped out of our chairs as soon as we heard the screams. A small framed woman with flowing black hair was running from a dark haired man.

Before I could make a move to help this poor woman, the man caught her and they both fell to the sand and began to struggle. I watched agape at the scene unfolding in front of me.

He then began passionately kissing her and it became obvious she was returning this passion. I was stunned and confused. What was I seeing? Then my eyes caught sight of the camera man and a group of people. They walk up to the couple and exchanged some words I wasn't privy to hear.

They all walked off the beach leaving us, once again, to watch the setting sun and me thinking, how we are all actors in a movie of our own making.

FFfAW – 50th Anniversary

It was our 50th wedding anniversary and my husband had promised a nice dinner at a high end restaurant. I was giddy with excitement. In all of our 50 years of marriage, we had never been to one of these five star restaurants. To be honest with you, I have always felt they were way too expensive and our money could be better used elsewhere.

We carefully walked to our table, my husband being careful not to tangle his cane with one of the chairs.

As we sat down, a beautiful cake with 50 candles was brought to our table followed by our children singing our wedding song.

My eyes filled with tears and they handed us our cake and wished us a Happy 50th Anniversary.

Our dinner was marvelous and it was a night I won't forget. At least, as long as my short term memory lets me remember.

FFfAW – Wind Energy

The price of coal fired energy went up astronomically. Massive and expensive equipment are needed to clean the air from the fly ash and coal dust, forcing the price of energy to rise unreasonably.

Sometimes we could afford to have electricity, but most of the time we couldn't afford it.

Finally, a solution! Wind energy! Wind turbines look like alien windmills on steroids. They are replacing expensive coal-fired energy, making electricity more affordable and the air cleaner.

I have invented the single house wind turbine. For everyone that purchases and installs one, their electricity will be free for life.

FFfAW-The Fireman’s Valentines Day Ball

I had been looking forward to this party for six months; The Fireman's Valentine's Day Ball. My dress and shoes had been purchased and were waiting for the big day to come.

A fireman friend, Samuel, had asked me to be his date. I was excited because I had had a crush on Samuel for months.

Finally, the big night came and I made sure I looked beautiful. Knee length gown in shimmering silk, beautiful stilletos to match the dress and my makeup and hair done just right. I looked and felt like a princess.

We had so much fun at the ball, dancing, drinking champagne and laughing.

When the evening ended, Samuel escorted me into my house for a cup of coffee. I reached down to take off my shoes and he reached to help. Samuel's smiling face met mine. Our eyes locked.

That was when the stars aligned.
