Friday Flash 55.....

.

.
This would be his crowning achievement...
No more living in the shadows of his Great-Grandfather.
It was now HIS time!!
Harvey Houdini was about to make Prestidigitation History!
Overcoming the final hurdle, ( talking his harpy wife into being his stage assistant)
The House was PACKED!
"Ladies and Gentlemen...VOILA"!!!!!

(My God.!! She Really Disappeared...)

.

.
If only it were that easy...hehehehe
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 Maize and Blue host from coast to coast...
Have a Kick Ass Week-End!!!!

Thank God it isn't that easy. There would be lots of missing people and some of them people I really love a lot.

Anger can be such a flash in the pan. Here one moment and just as quickly gone. I would not want to say VOILA in those flash moments.
