Friday Flash 55.....





I loved helping my Grandma at Thanksgiving.
Sure, I got the boring jobs...
Breaking up bread for the stuffing.
Grinding cranberries for the relish.
Rolling out the crusts for the Pumpkin and Mince-Meat Pie.
Peeling potatoes, cleaning out squash, observing
and learning all I could.
Alvena Margaret...Here's hoping I've done you proud!!



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 Stuffed Host from coast to coast...
Have a Kick Ass Week-End...Happy Thanksgiving!!!

No way. I'm the first? Wow.

Assuming I press 'send' quickly enough anyway.

Cracking work G. I'll be up in, like, 2 minutes!

That's how my dd learned to fold clothes, apparently. I never actually showed her anything.

That sounds pretty awesome to me G! You are lucky to have been allowed to come in and learn as much as you did. I'd sit down to one of your meals any day as they always sound DELICIOUS!!

Oh, and I do have one today too.

Me said...

Mmmmm...sounds divine! Especially the pie. :)

I have no doubt you did your Grandma very proud! Happy Thanksgiving, Galen! xo

PS - I sort of cheated a bit, but I am in this week. It's HERE.

Caty said...

Sounds lovely. I never lived close enough to my grandparents to be able to have Thanksgiving with them, so I had to learn from my Mom instead.

I really hope you had a good Thanksgiving. Great 55 - yes, you've done her proud.

I have conjured up another 55 from my NaNo novel for you this week.

With wonderful memories like that (they brought a tear to my eyes) I don't doubt for one minute that you had a great Thanksgiving. This may be my favorite of your 55s so far, G-Man.

hedgewitch said...

Not playing (anywhere) this holiday, but wanted to stop by and wish all the 55er's the best of Thanksgivings, especially that boy who's gone from Grandma's helper to chief cook and bottle washer, Mr G. Hope everyone enjoyed watching the Cowboys win by a hole in one yesterday. I won't mention what happened between the Packers and that other team. ;_)

Jingle Poetry said...

Happy Belated Thanksgiving.

Will see you later at 55s'
Thanks for everything you do.

Nara Malone said...

I used to love watching my grandma make the bread, up to her elbows in warn dough, that yeasty smell all through the house. Thanks for bringing back that memory.

Mines up. My sentences served ;)

Mama Zen said...
