Friday Flash 55.....




I seem to notice them more these days.
Circling....Circling Patiently.
I used to ponder over why they are circling.
Road Kill? Some unfound carcass shot by an unskilled
hunter? A dumped murder victim?
Then, like anything else that comes with age, The Epiphany!
You silly old fool, they are circling YOU!
Circling.....Waiting Patiently.



Maybe it's my cologne....Woodchuck Musk!
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 Buzzard-Free and Kick Ass Week-End!!

hedgewitch said...

I ran em off from my place the other day--they need to get a life--hopefully not mine. A change of cologne might not come amiss.

Look how the animals ignored me at http://bit.ly/rpt5ZP

Me said...

Ha! Well, maybe they had a F55 they wanted to share?

I'm in this week. Mine is HERE.

Janna said...

I'll do my best to have a buzzard-free weekend, but I make no promises.
Try not to let them catch you. It might help to throw large rocks.

Thanks for another Friday 55!
Mine's here. :)

moondustwriter said...

Time to change cologne...
Thanks G for inspiring us to write something weekly

this is a true story

Margaret said...

Very funny (how well do you know your neighbors... these days one never knows) ... I always think the hawks around here are going to get our tiny dog...

Here's mine (again)

Securely Wrapped

I have Grandparents arriving tomorrow and I will have to read everyones 55's Sunday or Monday.

Matthew said...

Fantastic stuff G. They'll come for us all eventually I guess.....!

I'm up!

Christine said...

Yvonne Osborne said...

Change the cologne, dude!

How strange you chose this subject....the opening scene in my wip involves just such a scenario. Suffice to say it ain't road kill.

My mother was recently sitting outside in the sun when she noticed vultures circling and remarked that they were closing in on her. There's something creepy about circling vultures, yet they perform such an essential service.

Have a great weekend, Oh Host With The Most! Now let's see if I can get lucky and correctly format a link to mine.

Yvonne Osborne said...

Is this supposed to be easy??

G-Man said...

Brian Miller said...

G-Man said...

Thanks Brian...:-)

Elisabeth said...

That's a powerful piece, Knowitall. And it's not easy to capture such force in so few words. I'm here via Yvonne's blog and pleased to meet you.

myheartslovesongs said...

just keep fighting, G. they can't get you as long as you can fight back. {and think about changing the cologne.}

mine's up, just for you.

Months and months and months

MomsJournal said...

Are you near any "Occupy" protests? Maybe they're just waiting for some carnage to happen.

Mine will be up in the morning - 7am Pacific time. :)

MorningAJ said...

I think it's cos you know where the bodies are buried - and they know you do! :)

I'm up here.

Jinksy said...

Let's hope you never see my choice of creature circling...

Ann (bunnygirl) said...

The trick is to outlast them!

Here's mine: Sorry, We're Closed

Alice Audrey said...

Yep, gotta be the cologne.

Mine is up

anthonynorth said...

Hopefully they'll have a long wait.

You'll find mine here.

mylittlewordz said...

Here's mine for this week or just click mylittlewordz above - http://mylittlewordz.wordpress.com/2011/10/21/shady-woman/

Guess that would be worrying to find those birdies circling you. Nice take on that image!

Lydia said...

They'll have a long wait.
Maybe they just want to play Duck-and-Cover with you!

I am heading over to the Oregon coast this weekend for my annual solo time there. Not bringing the computer, so will read 55s before and after I go.

Mine is What was his name>

Just going to see if this link works..if it doesn't please delete it!

Linc said...

That's a scary thought, but I think I may have to look for the same thing soon!

Is it just me, or is it getting harder and harder to be on time for the 'Friday' 55's by actually posting them on Friday? Hrm...

Here be mine: Interruption of Service

Other Mary said...

Hahaha - my dad always used to say, 'Must be an old guy out cutting grass nearby.' :o)

izzy said...

Oh yeah! Just what I needed this morning- "A knock on the head"
bring me right back to mortality!

Here we are again. I kept to your 'theme' of birds.

Here's mine:

Trafalgar Square

Have a great weekend Mr G man :)

manicddaily said...

Hi Mr. Knowitall! I'm worried that I am wearing the same perfume (and I live in NYC most of the time!) When things are circling above you in the air there, they usually aren't in the mood to wait!

Here's my link: http://manicddaily.wordpress.com/2011/10/21/fridays-flash-55-did-you-hear-the-one-about-the-father-the-daughter-and-the/

Short link better? http://wp.me/pAARg-2fb

Have a nice weekend.

Linda said...

Oh I love this one. I ponder the same things. Hopefully they aren't after us yet!

My silly 55 is here at Roses to Rainbows

Other Mary said...

It's been awhile...but I'm Bach...er back!
Ok, here's my 55: http://writinginthebachs.blogspot.com/2011/10/time-passed.html

You are absolutely correct about the Turkey Vultures being more numerous these day, G-Man! I've been noticing the steady increase over the past few years, seeing them increasingly in more urban areas. Used to be you had to go up north to see them in any numbers. Drive by the big garbage dump along north M-23 just before it merges with I-75 on a hot summer day and you'll see dozens of them!

Helen said...

I've got lots of extra garlic I can send your way ....... if it works on vampires ~~~~

Teresa said...

Certainly they can't be waiting for you-not the perpetually 55 G-man. Mine is late, but it's there.

Helen said...

You got me all inspired to write a 55 -----
