Friday’s Super Short Stories!


The power of suggestion is strong … all I did was say that I was thirsty for a milkshake … my friend said, “Let’s go to Rax.” … we did … it was very good! (my friend still blames me for us getting caught. Yes, we may have been in class over 20 years ago. ) 


50 degrees the other day. Spring fever has hit!

Music to the ears: When your children say to each other, “We need to hang out sometime.”

  1. I can almost taste that photo of the milkshakes. That would be a good reason to skip class.
    Spring is coming slow for us. But a few days ago it got up to 71, so that’s a good sign that warm weather could be on its way.

  2. An unusually mild winter here. (Must have exported it to Texas this year.) Not much good skiing, but I’m not complaining. Local routes are runable… and I’ve seen a foot-and-half in June, so..?

    On a hot day, I’ll mix a tablespoon of coffee grinds in that left one. 😛

  3. Wednesday last week my yard was covered with snow, icicle hung off the roof, and I had precious little water pressure and electricity.

    Wednesday this week I was running around in shorts and a tee shirt and turning on the air conditioner.

  4. Great memories! Ice cream is my #1 weakness. We don’t keep it in the house because I eat it like a guy who hasn’t eaten in three days. By the way, I picked up The Odessa Chronicles. It might be a bit until I read it. Without exaggerating, I have about fifty books already waiting for me on my Kindle. 🤣

    • Whats your favorite kind of icecream?
      Thanks for getting “The Odessa Chronicles”, that is great! No rush, I totally understand. You must be an avid book reader like me. Isn’t it great how many books a Kindle can hold! My Kindle remains one of the best gifts my husband ever got me. 🙂

      • Chocolate peanut butter, but I like just about anything.

        I do like to read, but I’m finding that I read books much differently these days. I don’t just read for enjoyment like before. I find myself paying much more attention to the craft of writing. Since I’ve only written one book (nonfiction), I’ve got so much to learn when it comes to fiction. I’ve spent the last year and a half going over my first children’s novel (26 chapters) with my writer’s group. I’ve taken writer’s classes, started my blog, had beta readers read my story, but hands down, the best thing I’ve done was to find my critique group. I’ve learned so much from them. They are helping me become a better writer. Collaboration is such an important tool. I already knew that from my years as a teacher. I’m close to submitting my story, but the whole process takes forever. I figure I’ll give it a year, and if I can’t find a publisher or agent, I’ll probably self-publish. I’ve learned to respect the process. It isn’t about getting rich or famous; I want to prove to myself that I can do it.

        • Chocolate pb is yummy!

          I wish you all the best with your book and getting it published. That is great about your critique group. I had a group like that before Covid, we would meet at the local library, it was really nice!
          You are soooo right about it not being about being rich or famous! You do it because your heart is in it,like you said, you want to prove to yourself that you can.
          I write because its my passion and if I can bring happiness to people through my books than all the work involved in writing and getting published is worth it! 🙂
