Friday Flash 55.....

.

.

We had an appointment.
She was early, I was late.
Michaelangelo couldn't have chisled THIS Dame!
Now I haven't trusted ANY woman since 1940.
Paris...Spring.
She went out for a bottle of wine, and two hours later the Nazi's march in!
But there was something about the fragrance of Pall Malls, Honeysuckle and Lavender.....

.

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

...but you never forgot her...

I’m back from the mountains, lakes and trails with a quiet little 55 today… born under the midnight sun in a remote valley covered in a carpet of alpine flowers.

Was there something said about a FRAGRANCE??? I LOVE to smell things! Seriously, odors are a big thing with me, from "farm stuff" to department store parfum counters.

This was great
Never be late
Especially in Paris...Spring
Especially in 1940...

John's comments said...

She looked at him like an iceberg on the melt and said `Are you a policeman, or what?'

He tilted back his hat,`I used to be. Now I'm a what.'

The smell of Pall Mall's would hit a memory chord, that's all Mom and Dad smoked when I was a kid! Ohhh, I love the smell of honeysuckle and lavender, but in a different sense than you do, lol!
