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.
