A few words…

For Friday Fictioneers on a Tuesday!



love surprises, especially this time of year!  A Christmas card lands on my mat. I rip open the envelope wondering what it will be like.  Santa, a snow scene, baby Jesus?

It’s the big day next Wednesday.   What presents will I get?  Something to wear, drink, read? 

All Wednesdays are fun. Get up, shower, make coffee then fire up the computer. My finger hovers over the keyboard wondering what Rochelle’s picture prompt will be! A place, a person, an animal?

It’s Wednesday tomorrow but I won’t be around to write a story, I’ll be at a Christmas Market.  So you’ll have to make do with this!

Happy Christmas!



bbbThank you, Rochelle, for hosting Friday Fictioneers.


Kiss the frog to join in the fun!

      Winchester Christmas Market was great thanks – last year I went to the one In Glasgow. Wishing you and yours all the best for Christmas and the year to come.

    Dear Keith,

    I hope the Christmas market goes well for you. Only you could announce your impending absence with such a flair. Of course you know you have until Tuesday to post a story for the prompt. 😉

      It’s Thursday today and the market was fantastic, thank you. Shall I, shan’t I? That is the question!

    Ha! Love this!! I think you’d schedule that ahead of time – but mistletoe or not, I’m not kissing no frogs. Princes (well certain kinds of princes…) may be another matter altogether … 😉
    Merry Christmas Market to you! 🙂 Na’ama

    Christmas markets are great fun! I suspect several of us may get a late start next week. Merry Christmas, Keith 🙂

        Same to you! Cold here this morning, with a thin frosting of sparkly snow. Clear blue sky, sunshine, Very pretty 🙂

    Enjoy the market – my kids used to love the surprise on the advent chocolate piece. Merry Christmas for next week.

    Maybe there was a gazebo at the market? Not sure why there would be, but if there was, you could legitimately put the picture back in!

    I love Christmas markets and am going with the family tomorrow night. Hot chocolate, crepes, and more await. You wrote a nice festive piece! Happy holidays to you and yours, Keith!
