Friday Flash 55.....



Lewis and Clark never grew tired of the majesty.
Around every bend in the river, atop every overlook,
they alone were the first white men to set eyes on
America's unspoiled beauty! As the pair made their
way up the jagged outcropping, something was boldly
carved on the mountain side......
"FRED 03"
WAS HERE!!

.

Theres always one in every crowd isn't there?
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!

I think there actually were graffiti--but they were Native American petroglyphs.

Okay, okay, so yours is funnier.

I got off my bed of deathly sickness to play. Fortunately, I already had this one ready to go:

Alice Audrey said...

And they called it hieroglyphics and said how cute the natives are for writing it.

Mine is up

Lewis and Clark wonder what their take on Americana today would be?

Always a funny take on things

libraryscene said...

Fred...now, I was expecting you to go on and on about them seeing the beautiful young lady, Sacajawea, who made the majesty look ugly...ah well.

You know me, couldn't resist the current events, ergo, there's a small fire over at my place, keeping things light."

Pheromone Girl said...

Oh, man... I think I wrote that at Rooster Rock, once!

I once drank wine where it's reported that the whole caravan landed and first saw the ocean. Heady stuff - the wine and the surf.

I shook off responsibility and played (first time in a while!)

and counting...

Got the bail money ready, sweetheart?

Alice Audrey said...

Sorry, G-man. That was an accidental double post. I took The Artist down. You'll see it again in a few weeks.

Enchanted Oak said...

Happy Friday, Galen! Glad to see you still in good sassy form. I've been working my poor fingers to the bone this month, but my cat made me write a 55 this week. Actually, she dictated the thing and I won't vouch for it. All I'll say is that it is, indeed, 55 words if you count the title.

Belinda Munoz said...

Very funny! I wonder, who gets to be the first to get anywhere or do anything these days...so the lesson I take from this is boldly go and do...it's all been there done that, y'know?

I'm playing this week:

Messed up my other comment....

I like your L&C piece lots. Like them lots. Have visited Fort Clatsop, their winter encampment and it's a great museum.

I'm back this week, here. Thanks for the fun.

Nimue said...

Letters - a poem

informingarts said...

So that's why that's painted on their statue in town... Good one G. Your endings always surprise me.

Mine's up. It's about nature, and other things...

Night Watch

Akelamalu said...

Well at least it wasn't Kilroy! LOL

Mine's up.

Akelamalu said...

I just had a thought maybe Kilroy is a 'this side of the pond' thing and it won't mean anything to you.

Fireblossom said...

Knowing you, G Man, I was waiting for the other shoe to drop. :-)

Mine is up.

Titanium said...

Graffiti. Yep. Those kids back then… no respect :)

Sorry to be late- schedule is all sideways this summer for me. I’ve got one posted, though- come on over!

Stranger said...

In my opinion, there's nothing ruins a view like the faux names of people who feel it necessary to tag everything like dogs with piss. That said, I do have a fondness for street art - which many people consider graffiti.

My 55 is here

Have a kick ass weekend, sir.

lime said...

apparently sacagawea had a tourist business before lewis and clark hired her

Leo said...

Oh, I wonder if Lewis n Clark wondered if Fred was a white man too B-) Interesting take, G-man!

secret agent woman said...

A bittersweet thing, given what we've done to all that unspoiled beauty.

hope said...

Yep. I remember traveling somewhere in Va. and the guide showed us where one young George Washington had carved his name in a rock while surveying property!

Took a break this week but hope you have a good weekend!

Donnetta said...

Hello, Galen: Hey, better late than never. Still trying to get back in the groove. My 55er is up! Come see. D

Mona said...

Galen, a million rupees is about $5000, but in India we have cars that would cost as much as 20 million and more. We do have Ferrari yes!
