FFfAW-The Treasured Gift

When my five year old son saw the Army plane hanging in the museum he was adamant that he wanted a toy plane just like that. I have never seen him want anything more than he wanted this plane.

My mission began to find a toy plane like this Army plane, and I found it wasn't an easy feat.

Finally, after becoming desperate, I went on the U.S. Army website and found that I could order a toy Army plane like the one he so adamantly wanted.

He was elated to receive this precious plane for his sixth birthday!

FFfAW-On Time

We fell in love in 2010 and had a wonderful time together going out for coffee and spending romantic time together.

One day he had to move and I was heartbroken. He promised to come see me every year on the date of our anniversary of our falling in love.

Every year since 2010 we have met and proclaimed our love to one another and then he would have to leave again for another year.

Today is September 21, the date of proclaiming our love to one another. I watch out the window and see, he is right on time.

Oh my God, run, they are here! Oh my God!”

“The Martians aren't here! Have you lost your mind?!”

“Look, they are here! They are coming through the roof of this building!”

“No dumbo, that isn't Martians! That is a fan! Just a fan!”

FFfAW-Freezer Burn

 

I woke up 150 years after being frozen and I didn't recognize the new world I was in at all.

People didn't look like people anymore. They looked more like hay bales with pipes for arms and legs.

I was mortified. I wanted to go back to my time period, the time period I grew up and grew old in. But alas, I could not.

Finally, I asked the manager of the company that had frozen my body.

“What happened, why did you unfreeze me now in this strange and unusual world?”

His answer, “Because you had freezer burn.”

FFfAW-The Missing Body

Dr. Dearborn died. He was the beloved physician loved by many of his patients. It was quite a shock to the town when he passed. Oddly, his body went missing from the funeral home. Very strange thing indeed.

At first, the mortician tried to keep it a secret thinking he would be able to find the missing body. But several days passed without finding Dr. Dearborn's remains.

Finally, Mr. Edwards informed the family that his body had gone missing and that he was very sorry. The family were not concerned. They were sure his body had been raised into heaven.

Dr. Dearborn's body was never found so it was that it had been raised into heaven. They held the funeral with a closed casket. The family grieved in peace believing their loved one was in a better place.

FFfAW-Illiteracy be Damned!

The old schoolhouse was small but stood proudly on the prairie. Years ago it was the schoolhouse for young girls and boys that lived on the prairie but since WWII ended, it has become the schoolhouse for illiterate veterans to learn how to read and write.

Winnie is the teacher and takes her time to teach these older men the mechanics of reading and writing. It is her mission to teach as many illiterate veterans as possible. Of course, the old schoolhouse only houses about 5-6 men at a time so Winnie is busy year round. She is proud of her mission and of the results she sees from her work.

Straight laced Winnie's motto is, “Illiteracy, be damned!” And so it is.

FFfAW – The Cruise

People were standing on the deck of the ship bobbing and waving at their loved ones on land. I heard the sound of children's laughter and the excitement of the people that are headed on this Caribbean cruise.

I would like to go but work keeps me here. My brother and I waved at our parents as they excitedly waved goodbye. I could smell the salt from the sea heavy in the air.

I heard the ship's horn as it signaled it's departure. The ship became smaller as I watched it leave port and my parents fade out of sight.
