FFfAW-My Escape

I'm running as fast as I can. Sure, my back isn't as straight as it use to be and I have to run bent over, but, I finally got out of that place! Old folks everywhere. I ain't no old folk, I'm only 75. And I ain't gonna be stuck with a bunch of old folk that can't even remember who they are. Not only that they cheat at playing cards. I know they cheat! I got to where all I played was Solitaire because the old folks cheat! The only thing to look forward to in that place are the meals and even the meals are lousy. They taste like baby food. Bland as hell. It probably wouldn't have been so bad if my family would come visit me but they stopped coming to see me and I get awfully lonely. Come to think of it, I'm getting hungry. Even that old bland food is better than nothing. Guess I better go back so I don't miss my meal. Now I'm lost. Which way?

FFfAW-My Lucky Penny

“What are you looking for?”

“My lucky penny. I just had it and dropped it.”

“You can always get another penny and make it your lucky one.”

“No, I can't. This is my lucky penny and I have had it since I was a little boy. I can't lose it.”

“Don't be ridiculous. You will never find it in this grass.”

“Look! I have found it! The reason I found it was because it was my lucky penny.”

“Great. Glad you found it.”

“Uh Oh…”

“What's wrong now?”

“I dropped my lucky penny again. Please help me look for it.”

FFfAW-Fire

I stare at the fire as the flames dance around the embers and the glowing fire becomes more and more intense.

I cannot stop watching the fire as it is mesmerizing to me. It takes over all my senses and locks it's bright fiery glow into my eyes.

First, I see the devil jumping around in the flames ready to reach out and pull me in but I fight against him.

As the flames wear down to glowing embers I see the stars sparkling and shining, silently rejoicing that I won against evil and it is now time to live!

FFfAW-Kloric the Giant

Kloric had become lost from the land of Giants and found himself among the little people of the land.

Sadly, when the little people saw him coming they all ran for cover, screaming.

This made Kloric sad that they were so frightened of him, after all, he was a nice giant and only wanted to make friends.

He tried talking to them kindly but they didn't understand his language. So he started making friendly noises, cooing, aaaawwing and ooowwwing.

That didn't work. The little people wouldn't come out of hiding.

Kloric desperately needed their friendship and their help to get him back to the land of the Giants.

As the tears were trickling down his cheeks he saw a small scroll and quill and began to write to these little people in a language they would understand.

The little people came out of hiding and read the scroll. Together they built a large tower so the town mayor could talk to giant Kloric. Working together, the little people helped their new friend get back home.

FFfAW-Dream Vacation

My dream had always been to go to Holland. Why Holland? I don't know why except that it had always intrigued me.

Finally, I was able to go to Holland and I was mesmerized by the old windmills and beautiful flowers that grow on acres and acres of land.

The people there were friendly and welcoming.

I didn't want to leave. I wanted to stay there forever and live among all it's beauty.

But, I had to go home and now all I have of Holland are memories and pictures.

Now my dream is to go to beautiful Australia.

FFfAW-The Magic Brook

My daughter, Sharla and her friend Macy, loved going to the brook at the back of our house. They loved to wade through the cool water on hot days.

I didn't mind. I knew it was safe as I often went back there to check that it was. Besides, if there was a problem it was only about 50 steps to our house.

One day Sharla came running into the house screaming,

“Mom, mom! We found gold in the creek!”

I went outside to see what it was they had found thinking it would only be fool's gold.

Sure enough, there were gold nuggets glittering on the bottom of the brook.

Making several trips, we picked up the nuggets and took them to the house.

We had 16 ounces of gold. At $1,350.00 an ounce, we had almost $22,000 worth of gold. The girls will split it and have about $11,000 each. A nice little savings to put away for college.

I realized, this is a magical little brook at the back of our house.

FFfAW-The Fiesta

The festivities began early in the morning on Friday and were planned to continue through the weekend. Many families had come to town to be a part of the fiesta.

The weather was suppose to be beautiful. Sunshine combined with perfect temperatures.

There was an excitement in the air and everyone was laughing and dancing in the streets. Except for little Jenny. She couldn't get excited about the fiesta. Her father was suppose to be home but had failed to show up when expected. And she couldn't help but worry.

Jenny was at the supper table playing with her food when she heard the crowd laughing and dancing in front of her house. Jenny wasn't in the mood to join them.

Suddenly, the door flew open and surprised Jenny. Her father was standing there in front of her with a wide grin.

Jenny jumped up and flew into his arms, beaming. Daddy was home.

Together they joined the festive crowd, laughing and dancing.

When daddy is home, life is good.
