FFfAW – Thief!

The beautiful and magnificent diamond, “The Allridge Diamond,” was stolen from the gallery of McClendon's Jewelry.

The police quickly arrived and started their investigation. Trouble was, no one saw who took the diamond and how it was stolen was a complete mystery.

The police immediately went to all the stores near the Jewelry Store and obtained their surveillance tapes.

None of the tapes except one gave any suggestions as to who the thief was.

There he was. The thief. Disguised as a regular man that that blended in with his surroundings.

An arrest was made immediately. The thief was caught!

FFfAW-The Message

“How do you know that Jimmy Boy is back?” Rena asked.

“Because he has left me messages all over town,” answered Marilyn.

“Really? Messages. What does he say?”

“He doesn't say anything.”

“Then how do you know he is back?”

“I just know.” Marilyn giggled.

Rena laughed, “I don't get it.”

“Smiley faces! He has left me smiley faces all over town!”

“And you are sure it is him?”

“Absolutely! The reason I know, when I said yes to going out with him, he left me a note with a smiley face.”

About that time the phone rang.

FFfAW – Waiting

The last letter I received from him was a month ago. He said he would be coming in on the ship and his active duty overseas will be over. It has been such a long time since I have seen him and I can't wait to see him again.

I have been coming to the pier every day waiting for his ship. Every day I have been disappointed. But today may be the lucky day. I feel it in my bones. He's coming in today!

I wait but alas, he doesn't come in and again, I am disappointed.

I will stay here at the pier and wait. One day, my ship will come in.

FFfAW-The Power of Love

The political climate was harsh, cold and crisp as the spring air. Riots were breaking out on the streets and Democrats and Republicans were fighting each other in the streets.

The Democrats wanted one candidate and the Republicans wanted another. They each hated the other's candidate.

Windows in businesses were being broken and and thieves were entering the businesses and looting.

It was disgusting to watch the evil take over the streets simply over differing opinions.

Marlee and her daughters and their friends gathered in the streets holding signs of “Love.” Trying their best to break the hatred that had taken over.

Suddenly, they were joined by others that were trying to break the hatred and all were holding signs of “Love.”

Slowly, those that were causing all the problems left the streets and the only ones left were the “good guys.”

That was the day that Love trumped hate. What a beautiful thing!

FFfAW-Mr. Dreamy

I work from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm everyday and only get 2 coffee breaks. One 15 minute break in the morning and another 15 minute break in the afternoon. Luckily, there is a coffee cafe in the building that I work.

That is where I met him. Him…the man of my dreams. The man that will take me away from this 9:00 to 5:00 horror.

I made sure to make a good impression on him. I found out that he works in one of the businesses in the building. I was excited to think that I would see him often during our coffee breaks.

Then one day he didn't show up. I searched and searched, to no avail. I was heartbroken. Where is Mr. Dreamy?

Then I found out the horrible news. He was fired.

My dream of Mr. Dreamy went down the drain along with a cup of cold coffee.

But this morning I met another Mr. Dreamy…

As they say, life goes on.

FFfAW-Power Outage

He told me to meet him at the tower of 4th and Silver. I had no idea what tower he was talking about as I wasn't familiar with that side of town.

All the lights had gone out in the city due to a power outage and the only lights I could see were the car lights.

All of a sudden I saw the tower – black as night lined vertically with solar lights. I was able to conclude this was the tower he was referring to.

I pulled my car into the parking area and cautiously got out of my car. After all, it was very very dark.

Suddenly, a man in a menacing clown suit came up to me and I screamed and screamed. Oh my God, what have I gotten myself into?

Laughing, Dale said, “It's just me!”

I could have killed him.

We walked to the Halloween party together.

I'll get him back because tonight I am a witch.

FFfAW – Cheater

His talk was flowery and fake. “Hello darling. I love you darling.” But he didn't care. He was gone most nights until midnight, sleeping with his mistress. He didn't know I knew, but I knew. I could smell her perfume on his shirts. I could smell their lovemaking on his skin.

I put up with it for years until one night he came home and I had had enough.

“I want to leave you Jim.”

“Why? I thought we had something good.”

“We haven't had something good in years — not since you got yourself a mistress!”

“What makes you think I have a mistress?”

“I can smell her on your clothes and I can't stand that smell anymore!”

“Darling, that is the smell of the laundry soap you use. I'm not cheating on you.”

“Laundry soap my ass!” And I shot him.

I killed him, right then and there, and it felt so damn good.

Now I use a new laundry soap.
