Every Friday, compose a short story of 55 words -
no more, no less. if you want to join in the
fun and games and give it a your story
and report to the boss G-Man!

From gardens and pixies and bubbles galore,
bouncy balls and barbie dolls with perfect smiling faces.
We grow each day with all these toys
please wait until we are asleep to decide what stays or goes.
Yard Sale Day comes this time of year,
Oh how happy mommy will be with more room in here!!

Busy day this is where I'm at i hope you all are great, I hope to stop by and see how you all are doing. So what do you think G-Man?

Lou said...

Oh, how I detest those yard sales..but still I have them every year!

Good luck prying the old toys out of the children's hands;)

Whatever you throw out they will miss and it will be the greatest or the best.
Great 55. It took me way back.

Fandango said...

Don't throw the poor kids stuff away get a bigger house.
Great 55. We dragons don't have those problems but we liked it anyway.

SO PERFECT!!!!! Great job!

I never was any good at taking anything away from my kids or for that matter, getting rid of any of my stuff.

I have probably had two yard sales in my life, hated them, and never plan to do it again.

That's why I can't downsize to a smaller home. Too much 'stuff'.

Loved your 55.

If my mother hadn't saved a bunch of stuff and if her mother hadn't, then I wouldn't have a house full of antiques. Today's trash will be tomorrow's treasure.

g-man said...

You mean you throw old stuff away?
Not Me!!! hahahaha
Excellent 55 Sweet Sue...
Thanks for playing this week, and have a Great Week-End...G

And I thought I was the only mom to do that.

ciara said...

kids always swear they need or will play with something the minute you want to throw it out even if it's been five years lol. great 55.

Pat said...

No need for toys anymore in this house, but I still like to visit yard sales. Great 55!

Love it. I agree wait until the kiddos are asleep. They'll never miss the toys if they don't know they're gone. (Hugs)Indigo
