Friday Flash 55.....



It was always the last one chosen.
Much like yourself as a child when sides were picked for Dodge Ball.
But it did have it's moments!
Like the time it was the first to purchase Park Place, then rolled a Deuce
to secure Boardwalk.
Now after 84 years....Replaced by a Kitty?
(The Scottie Dog is growling.........)


If you or anyone you know has been replaced or has written a Friday Flash 55
Please come tell The G-Man
I will visit, read, enjoy, comment......Then BOOK!
So from the most Monopolized host from coast to coast
Have a Kick Ass Week-End...

Hey, I've always been a cat person instead of a dog person.

But I've also had a tendency to "root for the underdog", so I'm torn!

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

Janna said...

OMG, am I first?!

That's a first!

razzamadazzle said...

I was never a fan of the iron. Poor little fellow. I much prefer the kitty!

Mine is HERE.

Brian Miller said...

hedgewitch said...

G, you are always on top with the social commentary. How sad for the iron to hit the skids after finally making it to the top of the pile. And why a kitty? Where is the hamster?? How about the frog?

Personally I always liked the iron because it was a hot item.

'Kay, moving on...I'm playin, with a little something non-morbid for a change--(yes, it's really me)

The Rest

That's a bunch'a'bull! I ALWAYS chose the iron!
Sign of the freakin' times! THE END IS NIGH!!!

Fireblossom said...

The iron was stupid. The kitty is a big improvement!

Alice Audrey said...

Wait. Replaced by a kitty? When did this happen.

Mine is up

TALON said...

lol! Oh, yeah, the arguments amongst me and my siblings when picking pieces for Monopoly. Great memories stirred, Galen. :)

Agh! Is the Iron gone! The cute little Iron! (I'm actually phobic of irons though I use them constantly.) Subject for a poem.

I'm in - and early!

Iron is and was STUPID! I googled the tokens and I so don't remember the wheelbarrow? I love the scottie, love the cat... now we need a horse. :)

I never understood why have an iron, and the kitty is adorable. So why does this make me sad? Nostalgia is a bitch.

Maybe I need a happier perspective: A Beautiful Life

Anthony Desmond said...

the ole iron... was easy to play with... but I am a cat person (even tho I'm allergic to them, lol).

rumoursofrhyme said...

Replacing the iron with a cat is one thing, but Park Place and Boardwalk? Whatever happened to Park Lane and Mayfair? ... smiles

Here's my 55 for this week:

Lost in Translation.

A Daft Scots Lass said...

Getting rid of Scotty was fekkin sacrilege. Getting Rid of the iron is just desecration.

Have a bitchin weekend!

RNSANE said...

I guess everything has to change... As long as they don't make it. Justin Bieber piece!

aspiritofsimplicity said...

I always picked the iron. Partly, I suppose because of the underdog factor but also because I like the way it felt in my hand. I suppose all things must change.

Ha, I always LIKED the Scottie Dog. I hated the iron. Quite annoying that a dog is replaced by a cat!!! Woof! Woof!

Here is mine. Brian got me over here last week, and I am back again!!!

The death of a poet leaves a hole in the world. This is for Seamus Heaney.

Thank you for the opportunity to share a poem today, G-Man.

Mary said...

Oops, I see I misunderstood. It is the IRON that is replaced by the kitty. Well, that is okay then. Who irons anymore anyway? LOL.

gabriellaswritingcorner said...

What a strange replacement! Does the cat sleep on the clothes?

Here is my own contribution:

Beachanny said...

Invited back, I came. Didn't like getting the iron much in monopoly but didn't like the ship much either. I'd play with the cat or the dog if we ever pulled out that board any more. I didn't see the prompt prior to so here's my latest 55 - the third I've done to Ms. Judith Clay's whimsical artwork- this one I call JOURNALISTS. Thanks G-Man!

Helena Philomena Liebekraft said...

Mine's goofy and romantic and I opt not to share it. But thanks for the inspiration!
Why couldn't they have just added the cat instead of taking away the Scotty dog? I'm all for fair play!
