Friday Flash 55....




This Thursday, a great friend and fantastic supporter of our Friday Flash 55, Doctor John, was laid to rest. For about a year, he and his 'Dragon' Fandango, were nearly ALWAYS the first ones to contribute on my Flash 55 post. They also visited nearly all of the other authors that day with wit, wisdom, and warmth.
And in the spirit of Doc's 55's.....This Groans For YOU!!!

They thought they were discreet.
But the paparazzi were on the prowl!
They had spies stationed EVERYWHERE...Even on the exotic island of Bali.!
The outside open-air shower felt MARVELOUS following their daily swims.
And upon returning home, The London Globe's Headline screamed....
"A Rolling Stone Lathers Kate Moss!!!"


R.I.P. Doc....
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...!!!

Susan at Stony River said...

G-Man, you should get a job from the tabloids with THAT headline, a true groaner too!

I tried to do one too, in the spirit of Dr. John. I'm missing his posts already, and my thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Here's my groaner 55.

5thsister said...

I'm sorry I never had the honor of meeting or getting to know Dr. John. From what I gather he was a very popular blogger with many friends who will miss him but remember him always. My sincerest sympathies go out to all who knew and loved him.

Here is my flash 55: http://5thsister.blogspot.com/2010/02/flash-friday-55-memories.html

Boy, you people start early. I'm sorry to hear about your friend G-Man. I will try to visit as many F-55s as possible. Looking out at the sunny landscape this morning inspired a memory of a hot sultry day long past. Maybe I'm just tired of winter.

TGIF!

Your blog is great, I totally agree with the people in the media you are sick of, enough is enough they've already made millions, why do they have to keep talking about them.
