Friday Flash 55.....


.
.
She was looking at the television, but she wasn't watching.
She was in that post-work, catatonic, unwind state.
Two jobs...Bills piling up...How do you tell a 6 year old...
That Santa might not come!!
(Knock Knock)
"Becky Marsh.....?"
'Yes'
"United States Marine Corps Ma'am...Toy's for Tots"!
.
.
.
I know....I decided to take the 'Upbeat' feel-good road.
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 Christmas Everybody.....

I was veeeerrrry tired.

If you say "Have a very Merry Christmas" eleven times that makes 55!

Consider it said!

hope said...

Although I did "stealth poetry" this week, it wouldn't feel like Friday, or Christmas, if I didn't poke my head in to wish you and yours the very best life has to offer!

hedgewitch said...

Shows it's not just the halls of Montezuma, shores of Tripoli, or crowded dives..er, swingin nightspots of Base towns where you can find the Marines. A very Merry Christmas to you, and thanks for letting me play.

I don't have a 55 this week, but if anyone wants to read a Christmas 97, feel free to stop by my place.

Donnetta Lee said...

Very neat for Christmas. I'm married to a Marine, you know.

So, I didn't take the upbeat road! Mine is up. Enjoy it anyway! D

(PS) Have a wonderful Christmas, my friend.

lime said...

evalinn said...

A little late, because I accidentally fell asleep this afternoon..but now I´m up and playing! :-D

Eaton Bennett said...
