FFfAW – Special Date

On his way to his girlfriend's house, a car ran the red light and plowed right into Darren's door, injuring him badly. He and his girlfriend's date was immediately cancelled.

Life flight air lifted him to the emergency room to the closest hospital, LifeCare. Darren was immediately sent into surgery to repair his broken limbs and to stop the massive internal bleeding.

Darren was fortunate to live through this bad wreck. It easily could have been so much worse.

Three months later, Darren and Colesta went to a nice dinner and an exciting movie, happily finishing their fateful date.

At family dinners, wild tales start as soon as we’ve said Grace and the food is being passed around.  “Remember that fifty-two pound turkey Daddy brought home to fatten for Thanksgiving on year!”

Someone else breaks in, “That old turkey was the meanest thing that ever walked!  We couldn’t even walk out in the yard without him flying over the fence and flogging us.  Mother was looking forward to him teaching those terrible Downs kids a lesson…

FFfAW – The Timepiece

This magnificent timepiece was found lying in the water next to the riverbed. I could only imagine the history behind it.

As soon as I took it out of the river and put it in my pocket, it started making these eerie sounds.

Suddenly, I was transported back to a gold mining town in California during 1849. I watched as a man plunked down a small bag of gold to the clerk in the jewelry store where he bought a pocket watch and requested engraving.

I watched him tuck the watch into his pocket and walk away smiling.

I desperately needed to know what words he had engraved on that beautiful watch.

Then I realized the watch was in my pocket. I pulled it out and read,

Annie said Yes!

August 4, 1849

Again, I was transported in time and found myself back into the time I had started. I immediately went to my computer and began writing my novel.

FFfAW – Funky Munky Tea House

The Funky Munky Tea House has a secret. I, only I, know that secret. There were two of us that knew the secret.

They say a secret is safe with two people as long as one of the two is dead. Poison. It's fast and efficient.

I use to own the Funky Monkey Tea House. My husband robbed a bank and we hid the money underneath the floor boards. Now, my husband is dead. Only I know the secret. Just me.

One of these nights, I will go in and quietly take my money. It is mine now. All mine.

FFfAW – Watching Soccer

I wheel by this park every day and see the same boys playing soccer. It makes me wish to be young again – young enough to get out in the middle of the park and run and kick a ball.

I use to play soccer when I was younger. I wasn't the star athlete on the team but I was pretty darn close. Well, kind of.

But that was years ago – before my accident. Before the young man ran his car right into my door because he was texting on his phone. Before they had to amputate my legs.

FFfAW – My Horse Cody

When I turned 16, my dad bought me a car. Sure, I liked the car but it didn't hold a candle to Cody, my magnificent stallion.

I show Cody in horse shows where he usually brings home the blue ribbon. I spend all my free time with Cody, grooming him and training him. He and I are thick as thieves.

My dad asked me to choose between Cody or the car, Cody won, hands down.

My dad sold my car. Cody continues to win blue ribbons and I know that someday, he will win me a beautiful new car.

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.
