Friday Flash 55.....



Struggling to breathe...
He was a prisoner to Misery and Lonliness.
While the outside world raced toward the pursuit of Their American Dream, He was idling at a standstill, and slowly running out of gas!
But happiness will soon become a reality, because he made up his mind to Escape!
...To the open arms of LOVE!


If you or anyone you know has written a Friday Flash 55...
Please come tell The G-Man.
I will visit, read, enjoy, comment...Then BOOK!
So from the most gracious host from coast to coast...
Have a Kick Ass Week-End!!!

Sometimes we dragons have trouble putting the picture with the story.
We are slow dragons

Aw, you mean he went to the shelter and adopted a new pet! ;-)

Serena said...

The poor guy in the picture looks at his wit's end. Thank goodness he made the decision he did! Very nice little 55 tale of light at the end of the tunnel, G.:)

myrtle beached whale said...

I enjoyed yours, by the way!

big Jenn said...

Sorry no 55 this week. I liked your manwhich 55 almost more than this. It's a tough call. Have a kick ass weekend Mr G! jeNN

Janna said...

An interesting departure from your usual themes! :)
For some reason I like the fact that Misery and Loneliness are both capitalized.

Mine is posted here.

Have a good weekend.

Mr. O said...

Once again I posted mine early but forgot to link up... DOH!

Monkey Man said...

Very touching G-man. My 55 is HERE.

Larry said...

Paul accepted the job offer. His parents had been on him for almost three months. He met with Jim Stallings, owner of the Kingfisher, a charter boat out of channel Islands Harbor. Paul knew his parents would hate the job title, but at least he'd be making good money as the masterbaiter of the kingfisher.

I'm up too you'll find the link down below.

Kingfisher

Now who's the romantic? Nice Galen, very nice! Interesting thought, someone escaping to the open arms of love.

I haven't done a 55 yet, had sick teenage girls this last week and a half. I hope to get a 55 in by tomorrow, my tomorrow that is. :))

Have a great weekend!

Mom of Opiate Addict said...

Come hang out and won't you please come back tomorrow and play Song Saturday :P Happy Friday everyone :)

Hootin' Anni said...

....but will the escape work? I'm being a bit cynical this morning I guess...let's just hope the open arms of love will be a happily ever after kinda story. It all depends on what the object of love is. Oh ignore me today. I'm a bit foggy still this morning. roflmao

My 55 is Winter's Rime today...scroll below my show n tell to read. Click Here By the way, G-Man, I've been meaning to tell you that I really appreciate this Friday meme, and I TRULY appreciate you always visiting with me and leaving such kindness each Friday!!!

Mama Zen said...

Didn't expect that!

Mine is up.

Lynn said...

Well that was certainly romantic. :) No 55 this week. I'm resting up and getting ready to write a good one in the future. :)

MIke Kilgore said...

Hmmm, is there a story to go with the story? A little escape is a good thing, makes all of lifes BS fade....

I am posted yet again!

Kathleen said...

And love come so many forms...

Nice one, Galen. Like Susan, I want to read the sequel.

Will it be a "groaner" then?

Here's mine:

Nicely done - and what a photo!

SPINNING AND GRINNING – THE SPIN DOCTOR

Kerry said...

She sits at the cafe
Glass of white wine for fuel
She sits
And snipes
At passers-by
How fat! How ridiculous!
How can his wife put up with him!
I ask if I can join her,
She looks at me, perplexed.
Of course, she says,
I am so very lonely.
Please do. Please will you.

lifendream said...

Never late to run to the open arms of love..Good one.

Mine is here

Bubbie said...

Wow! I hope it's a true story. You must be happy with your 55, G-Man. It was MY favorite of yours by far. I liked that part where his life was in idle and running out of gas. Great analogy! Really enjoyed it. I'll get my 55 up next week.

S said...

#54 whoa! Continually impressed, Gman at the monster you've created.

Have a lovely weekend! ♥

Ofira Sephiroth said...

You're such a romantic.

Martyrdom

S said...

#56 says, you know, I think some people just find my feet intriguing.
Yes, I know I said I'd do that but...maybe next week I will do a pie themed one, ok?

buffalodick said...
