Hobjc3b6rn-9w nice. ‘High five’ I shout as I slap my palm against the welcome sign. Unfortunately, my gesture is a little overenthusiastic and I send it tumbling over the edge and down into the stream. Sorry, I mutter. I carry on round the bend singing my favourite song.

‘Climb every mountain, ford every…’ (sorry, that ‘s a bit out of tune!)

On I plod. I crane my neck to watch a soaring eagle, or is it a sparrow? Whatever, it’s beautiful. Then I trip.


There’s that ****** welcome sign again. ‘You could have warned me’ I yell as I refused it another high five.

  1. I was laughing from beginning to end. What a plonker! I could just see him tramping along happily singing out of tune, probably a couple of tin cans rattling outside his backpack a la Terry Scott in Carry on Camping..

    1. Rowena, thanks so much for that link.There were several I’d forgotten and a couple I’ve not seen before. Laughing at others misfortune goes way back to Laurel and Hardy and is the basis of slapstick.All together now – hahaha!


  2. Funny … Funny … Funny … I thought of a high five too when I saw the photo. Then, on further viewing I realized it could be there for something else. I so it was. You showed teh danger perfectly. I love that he landed right where the sign did. Gracious, he should have been pleased the sign didn’t carve his head open. Good write …

  3. I sure thought I had commented, Keith! I remember reading and enjoying your story, because singing “Climb every mountain” is what I’d be doing, too! But hopefully, I wouldn’t go tumbling down. 🙂
