FFfAW-Wait Until Morning

I was awakened by noises out in the parking lot of my apartment when someone started trying to get into my front door. I sat up quickly and listened. The door rattled some more. I ran to my closet and I crouched in my closet as quiet as a church mouse. My heart was beating so fast. I had to slow down my breathing so It wouldn't be so loud.

Men were yelling at each other outside. All I could think of was the apartment down the street was robbed and the woman that lived there had been raped and beaten. She is still in the hospital recovering. Oh my God, what if that happens to me? I started shaking. The time passed so slowly.

All of a sudden, my alarm went off and I knew that it was 6:00 am. The noises had stopped and I felt safe to come out of my closet. The sun was rising and I was safe. Suddenly it occurred to me, how badly I had to pee!

FFfAW – A Trip to the Museum

Robert is a history buff and decided we would travel to see the Museum of Strange History in Gargoyle, Illinois. I wasn't really into it but to make him happy, I told him we would go.

The day we left for the trip was beautiful. The sky was bright blue and the sun was out. This was a good thing because we had experienced a rough winter.

The drive would take us two days and we would stay in a motel on the way. We drove through some beautiful areas and I enjoyed seeing the gorgeous landscape.

We stopped in Ottawa and got us a motel. We had a very nice dinner at Pirate Jacks. I made several new friends.

The next afternoon, we reached Gargoyle and Robert was excited to go to the museum. We got us another motel, changed our clothes and left for the museum.

It was closed!

I certainly enjoyed the trip but I can't say the same for Robert.

FFfAW – The Trolley

During our family vacation, mom told us one of the things we would do while in San Francisco is take the trolley car to go shopping. All of us children were looking forward to that. We had seen pictures of the trolley and thought it would be a lot of fun.

When we got there, mom bought all the tickets and lined us up to board. My brother and I started play fighting which made mom mad. We were told we would have to stay at the hotel while she and the girls went shopping.

Bobby and I went back to the hotel to our room and decided to spend the afternoon watching cartoons. When we turned on the television it informed us that we had to put money in in order to get any programs. Drats! We couldn't watch the television.

It was a boring afternoon for me and Bobby. We ended up falling asleep and dreamed of riding the trolley.

FFfAW — Tropical Snow

Have you ever heard the term, “A cold day in hell?” The Tropics are a far cry from hell, but it snowed in the Tropics!

Children are outside with homemade sleds and families are building snowmen. Everyone is having a ball from this unlikely snowstorm.

The sandy beaches are covered with snow. People are at the beach building snow castles instead of sand castles. The bikini has been replaced with sweaters, long leggings and boots complimented with gloves and warm hats.

It's certainly not a cold day in hell but it sure is a cold day! We're having a ball!

FFfAW – My Pretty Garden

My backyard is my favorite place to sit. I enjoy sitting out in the open air and reading a book or hosting my friends with a cup of coffee or tea. I spend many enjoyable moments in my backyard. There were many great memories made in my backyard garden “room.”

That changed when I met Cecilia. I enjoyed her company and liked her right away. I felt we would become good friends and spend many hours enjoying each other's company in my backyard. Little did I know that she was trying to get rid of me and take over my home and my pretty backyard.

I had to kill her. Too bad. We could have been good friends.

FFfAW-Tree Hugger

I am an avid tree hugger. I hug them because I want to save them from the death of the loggers.

Sadly, hugging trees doesn't help save them, no matter how hard I hug.

I write letters to the editor of newspapers where the logging is taking place but it seems to do no good. Beautiful trees that have been growing for hundreds of years are being cut down.

Tomorrow, I am chaining myself to one of the trees they are going to cut down. They will have to kill me to get the tree. Maybe now they will listen!

FFfAW-True Love?

Adam asked me to meet him for coffee and I gladly did so. I was happy because I thought that meant that he was sweet on me as I certainly was sweet on him.

My hopes were up. Finally! He has noticed me. It was about time!

As soon as I sat down I noticed his sad face.

“What's wrong, Adam?”

Claudia has left me.”

My heart sank. (Who was Claudia?)

“Will you help me get her back?”

(What was I suppose to say? Sure I will!?)

“Hell No!” I answered.

I then got up and quickly walked out.
