Friday Flash 55.....



Day's...Month's...Years?
He had lost all track of time.
It WAS such a lovely place!
Mirrors on the ceiling, Pink Champagne on ice.
But over and over, each evening the same...
"Good Night" said the night man.
"We are programmed to receive. You can check out anytime you like...
But you can NEVER leave"!


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 Eagalitarian host from coast to coast...
Have a Kick Ass Week-End!!!

Ti has served up something romantic for this week.
Mine however, is a little more jaded in character. What, you're surprised?

Mojo said...

Welcome to the Hotel Yahtzee! Good one G. Have a kick-ass weekend!

Brian Miller said...

nice...great song. have listened to that one quite a few times in my day.

my 55 is up, though it may not be for everybody. give it a PG-13 rating...

Susan said...

I must not be old enough. I don't know that one. *smiles* I feel like I am 16 lately...

Sizzlin'! Hot diggety damn you guys. This week is ending on a rockin' 55 note all the way around.

SandyCarlson said...

Nicely done. I laugh, but then I never checked in. You da man, G-man.
Here's mine.

Buzzard said...

"We are all just prisoners here of our own device." Such a lovely place.

My 55: Bees

Alice Audrey said...

I once spent a pleasant two-mile walk with a friend dissecting that song.

Mine is here.

The Turning Point said...

Most Eagalitarian I'm equally impressed with your lyrical Flash 55

I'm up
Have a KAWE yourself

Thom said...

This is one of my favorite songs. Excellent 55 my friend. Loved it. Mine, for what it's worth, is up HERE. Have a great Friday :)

Serena said...

Me said...

Hi...found my way over here from Brian's site, been following the 55 for a few weeks now and finally decided to try one too...it's up now. :)

Monkey Man said...

Always love the musical references. My 55 will be HERE after midnight Pacific time.

Stan Ski said...

Better than the song...!
Try THIS!

Janna said...

Nice! Now I'll have that song in my head for the remainder of the evening. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing. In fact, it's been awhile since I heard it on the radio.

Thanks for yet another Friday 55. :)
Here's mine.

My story is NOT YES MAN

PattiKen said...

My 55 is up here.

G-Man, that is one of my favorite song lines: "You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave." There is a bar scene in the Jack Nicholson version of The Shining. I hear that line every time I see it. It's just so Hotel California.

Dianne said...

Hey, you should write a song....
Wait a second! Hey.....
Mine is up, for a little spring!HERE

Missy said...

sort of like not posting 55's anymore, but stopping by to read all the same. Some habits we choose not to leave.

Be well oh tender of the 5's :0)

Felicitas said...

Good morning, G-Man! Just checking in... A very creative 55 that takes me WAY back!

I'm up too.

Maha said...

I like this one. Prisons come in all shapes and types. mine is up!

Whitesnake said...

KB has often asked me to be apart of this but I have never found it my cup of tea.
I love KB so for one time only I offer you this!

Oh by the way I thought you did a great job......but according ta KB that is standard......

Alicia said...

Now I have the song in my head.

Here's mine.

Enchanted Oak said...

From one Eagle fan to another, Well done. After midnight California time, My 55 is here.

John's comments said...

Duh, a Eagle song. Would like to say before my time but now older then Friday Flash 55.My 55 is here

Gillian said...

One of my all-time fav songs.

Allisonian said...

I know what you mean, the champaign turns mundane.
When is a party not a party? when it's every night of the week.
Your amazing55 explains one of the mystery lessons 4all, but I had to hang out.
LKF~ Left.
Mine is about a connection; rather, my connection to what I call 'the caught in it' part of my youth. Thank you for hosting this great space! Just think! Eagalitarian and the bird!
my story's at this link. TQ

anthonynorth said...

Great music here today.
You'll find mine here.

järnebrand said...

I have always thought that song is so sad... A ghost hotel that won't let you leave...
But then again if you have to be stuck somewhere, why not at a lovely hotel that serves you pink champagne? ;) I can imagine worse prisons...

My 55 this week is about enjoying being a follower...

You are very welcome to come stop by! Love/ Jo.

Jana said...

Amazing and unpredictable as always…I literally grew up listening to this…I don’t know was that good or bad

My 55 will be up shortly.

Akelamalu said...

I love that song - very cleverly done G-man.

Mine's up.

Hootin' Anni said...

First....love your Thursday portrait. That is a gesture we taught our kids at a very early age. LOLOLOLOL

Love your 55. But I must confess there will be a song going through my head all day now, thanks.

Here is my Flash 55 for the week.

5thsister said...

Tracy said...

Nice to have a little Eagles to start a Friday morning. Trying this for the first time. I hope I did it right.

Yvonne Osborne said...

I always wondered what that hotel looked like!! Thanks G-Man. Mine is up.

hope said...

I guess an Eagle's soundtrack for today isn't so bad. :)

Mine's up. Now will someone kindly tell me how to place a proper link HERE to take you there faster?

Lulda Casadaga said...

Takin the easy way out this Friday G? :D Ah, a walk down memory lane...I just might have to pull out an eagles cd and listen to it this weekend!

Prayer Girl said...

Love the picture.
Love the song.

My cold is finally better and my mind is back so my 55 just went up.

Have a glorious weekend. It is beautiful here right now.

Eaton Bennett said...

You know, it's only just 12.00am in Australia...you guys beat me every time. And you start posting way before your Friday... :))

That seems like a rather disturbing place to stay...think i would avoid taking a room there G-Daddy. Have the best weekend and have some fun.
Eaton.

Nessa said...

I wouldn't mind driving around in circles in that car.

secret agent woman said...

I've always wanted to have a lot of pretty, pretty boys that I call friends. :)

Greg S. said...

Thank you so much. Love The Eagles and the song. We had a chance to visit the hotel a few years ago in Todos Santos. Not really the same place as in the song, but still pretty cool to have the match books!
