FFfAW-The Accident

I was anxious to get to the concert before it got too crowded. Because I knew I was in a hurry I was careful not to go over the speed limit.

The car came up behind me quickly. They definitely were in a hurry. They must be going to the same concert. Suddenly, they were right on my tail. It made me nervous. What if the car in front of me slammed on his brakes?

He not only is right on my tail, he is trying to pass me and the cars are coming from the other direction. My hands grip the steering wheel even tighter.

Suddenly, he passed. I wanted to close my eyes and not see what was surely going to happen. It was terrible.

I pull over to the side of the road and wait for the state police to arrive. After all, I am a witness.

Goodbye Sweet Friend

My little dog, Bria was coughing and I took her in the Vet on Monday. He diagnosed her with Congential Heart Failure. He put her on a medicine that would help pull the fluid that was building up in her lungs. The next day she got progressively worse. Then suddenly she got better.

But in the late afternoon she started having seizures and she was having them every 10 minutes. I knew it was time to do the only humane thing even though it absolutely broke my heart.

She was euthanized this evening at 6:00 pm.

My sweet friend is at peace now. I know she went over the Rainbow Bridge to meet her friends that are already there and they are running and playing in healthy bodies. This gives me peace and hope that maybe one day I will see her again.

Thank you for listening.

 

FFfAW – Forever Lovers

Randall and Susie were boyfriend and girlfriend. Susie loved going with Randall in his car where they would stop at a local drive-in and get a Coke and fries. Next they would go out to the woods and park where they would smooch for an hour before he had to take her back home.

One day Randall and Susie left to go get a Coke and fries but they never came home. Their parents, friends, and police led an all out search for them for seven days but neither they nor their bodies were ever found…

Until fifty years later. The old rusted car was found among overgrown plant growth with two skeletons in the front seat holding hands. They are forever lovers.

FFfAW – Learning to Play

“Plunk, plunk, plunk”

“Keep practicing!” Mother told me.

“Plunk, plunk, plunk.”

All I could think about was going outside to play with my friends. I didn't want to be practicing on this ol' piano.

I let out a deep sigh and continued to plunk on the piano knowing the song I was playing didn't sound like a song at all. Maybe mother will get tired of listening to this horrible piano playing and let me go outside to play.

“Plunk, plunk, plunk.”

“Alright Roddy, you can go outside to play now.”

Yes!! It worked.

FFfAW-Myrtle

My name is Myrtle and I stand in this pen day after day looking out at the green grassy field. I want so badly to go out and eat that tasty grass and romp in those grassy fields. My heart is out there and not in this stuffy ol' pen.

My mother tells me to not let that beautiful green grass fool me because the grass is NOT greener on the other side of the fence. I want to believe her, I really do, but my heart is out there in that beautiful green field.

Alas, I will never know.

FFfAW-James and Julia

Julia felt her anticipation and nervousness mount as she waited for the train to arrive carrying her boyfriend, James. She hadn't seen James in three months.

Three months ago James left to join the army and had been in training ever since. Now he had a two-week furlough prior to being shipped to North Carolina for more training.

James had a surprise for Julia.

James got off the train and immediately found Julia. After a tearful hello, James got on his knee and asked her to marry him, placing the diamond ring on her finger.

Julia was giddy with excitement as she happily accepted his proposal.

After affections were shown, Julia shyly whispered,

“James, we're having a baby.”

James was happier than he had ever been, and so was Julia.

FFfAW – Bikers’ Ball

This year our little town decided to have a “Bikers' Ball” for our Valentines' dance.

The night they all arrived, I was dressed to the nine's ready to go dancing! It was sure to be a fun evening out.

The loud motors hurt my eardrums and the men were all dirty and smelly. My hopes began to diminish.

I was all dressed up and they came in their grimy bikers' clothes. But, I decided to try and have a good time anyway.

One big man came to ask me to dance and I thought I was going to puke. He smelled so bad! I wanted to say, “My God man, haven't you ever heard of a bath?”

Little by little and one by one they asked me to dance and I ended up having the time of my life. Soon, that smell didn't bother me a bit. After all, they live carefree and ride their big beautiful motorcycles on highways and dusty roads!
