A few words…

for Friday Fictioneers.

‘Climb aboard The Pink Lady’ called the captain.

‘Don’t mind if I do!’ chortled George eyeing up the girl in front wearing fuchsia shorts. 

‘Behave!’ said wifey Beryl bopping him on the arm.


The little pink ferry chug-chugged its way across the bay. 


‘Welcome to Paradise’ shouted the captain. ‘‘Enjoy the beach and marvel at the sights’.

‘I certainly shall’ guffawed Beryl, spotting a handsome chap in tight yellow Speedos.

‘Now-now!’ said George, pinching her nose.


Fushia Shorts and Yellow Speedos dashed towards each other and embraced.

‘Looks like we’re stuck with each other’ chuckled Beryl giving George a juicy peck on the cheek.

    Dear Keith,

    One may be on a diet, but it doesn’t hurt to look at the menu, does it? 😉 Nor does one go blind when the ring slips on. 😉 😉 Cute story and Captain Froggy.

    I like these two, the teasing is good-natured and, as an old lady once said: when you don’t look anymore, you’re dead. Sweet story, Keith.

    I can just see them, Keith. I love their sense of humor–and adventure.

    Lovely nostalgic story – everybody has fun, but everybody knows who they belong with. Aaaah, bless!
    Thank you for such a delightful start to my Friday, Keith!

    Sweet! And honestly, after all these years, why can’t they admire the youth around them 😉
