A wet one …

for Friday Fictioneers.




“Hire your paddleboard here folks!”


Why don’t you have a go Bob?

I’m not sure Sally.

Paddleboarding’s fun.

Yea, unless you fall off!

You won’t! 

Mmmm, not sure.

It’s like skateboarding but on water.

I’ve never skateboarded.

Then it’s like skiing. 

But I can’t ski.

Alright, imagine you’re on an escalator in the underground station.

I sometimes use those!

Well, there you go!

How do I use the paddle?

Oh, for goodness sake Bob! Pretend you are sweeping the floor with a broom!

Okay Sally, I’ll do it.

“That’s not number nine”.

“Oh no … come in number six!”

    Dear Keith,

    I’m afraid paddleboarding would be right up there with ice skating for me. This weeble wobbles and she does fall down. 😉 Cute story and frog.

    Love the frog! And yes, I’m a bit like Bob with the board. Come in number 6.

    I giggled throughout the conversation. A woman at work tried to get me out on one but she stopped when I told her I couldn’t swim. I would like to try kayaking though. Near shore all the way…

      Very wise Mimi! I watched a couple in the sea this morning – and I wasn’t tempted to join them!

    Okay, let’s try this again. I got kicked off last time… I’m sure it was me clicking on something I shouldn’t have. Oh I love, love, love your pics… and as I’ve always said if the abandon building and their walls could talk. I love them your pics. I’ve been back & forth a couple of times today just to see them. You have a wonderful camera. It’s almost like I was there in person. Thank you so much for sharing. I’ve been gone for a while due to a computer change, and the other blog I was on I had to move. I was sharing it with 2 other women & they decided they just wanted to have themselves. I think I may have been taking up too much space one of my friends told me. So, needless to say I couldn’t afford to be on my own so I’m back on one of these freebie sights. Here’s my new link: https://newxmasdolly.blogspot.com/2021/09/wordless-wednesday.html so if you feel like stopping by feel free! Love to have ya! I hope all is well for you, and that you’re feeling very well, and may God bless you & yours. Take care my friend! I’ll be back… 🙂

      I’m so pleased you had a successful landing this time Marie, I missed you!

      As for the camera, no! It’s just my mobile phone with a bit of help from the Ribbet photo editor! See you again soon I hope. Stay well.

    The joy of every new experience is the lesson of resilience it teaches-after every fall comes success.

    I guess he was a good sport to try it.
    Cute lil tale, Keith.
    I’d be terrible at it; no coordination here.
    Have a good weekend … Isadora

        Sometimes, it’s more fun to watch people learning water sports. Watching their failures as they flop into the water can be amusing.

    It’s not the wobbling that puts me off, it’s the wetness! Mind you, if it’s really like skiing, I ought to give it a go!

    What a fun story. Splash. That’s the sound you’d hear from me if I tried that. I’m slightly tempted to try though.

    I have to hand it to Bob. He’s a good sport! Loved your accompanying graphics too!

    Hahahaha good one Keith. Poor thing, hope he makes it back safely!
