Flash Fiction Friday- camping fun

Every Friday compose a story, poem or limerick of 55 words
no more, no less then report it to the G-man!! Let him know you want to play along and join the rest of us nuts each week and see if we really know how to count!!

"Campouts and picnics are wonderful times
to spend together and forget your strife
learning new ways to get on with nature
and accepting worms as wonderful creatures
After all what else would you use to
catch underwater creatures?
If a picture tells a thousand words,
Then the following brings new meaning
to the Weenie Roast!!"

New tools for campouts, which my daughter, a worldly high school sophomore tells me is one word, but if it is technically two words i can replace it with "camping" any way i couldn't resist sharing with you guys. G-Man you need one of these for your collection!! I think they come in "pairs"!!
OK so the blood meal seems to be working as I had no damage from the critters eating my tomatoes last night, more will be revealed. gratitude list 5 things;
1. today i am grateful for this beautiful weather, it is a wonderful 75 out and i am going to join the kids after this post.
2. today i am grateful for the energy to play with my children, got up at 5, dispensed medicine gave baths, made pancakes drove kid to school, watered garden, cleaned kitchen and blogged!!
3. today i am grateful to not be in an overwhelmed panic state of mind over life. i simply enjoy my moments.
4. today i am grateful for listening, i listen to the sounds of my children and know i am blessed.
5. today i am grateful for my recovery, so far i have not found the need to use drugs in 1,664 days. pretty cool stuff.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend i will try to catch up on you all if Wes can stay off the computer tonight after the kids go to bed.

I've seen the little guys who stand on the edge of your grill and hold their wienies over the flames for you, but not the matched camping set.

Oh you betcha...that truly IS a new twist on a weenie roast. The boobies look a little charred too.

My 55 is now posted. It's not fiction per sé but it's done. Come by if you get a chance. Happy Friday.

Mouth watering 55 and following picture. Of, course, us dragons need more hot dogs to roast but we provide our own fire.

Ours is posted

For listening....

isn't it amazing what life has to offer us for the simple task of listening.. to hear it around us?

Love your post.

Hey! I haven't seen Boner Bob and Betty Boobs for a long time--I once had a pair I'd bought on ebay but (unsurprisingly) they were stolen on a long-ago camping trip.

Glad you had a great time, and I loved your 55.

Dr.John said...

I enjoyed the 55. We tried to go on a picnic the other day and got rained out.
I am always thankful for your grateful list.

Loved yoru poem & photo.

Those roasting "forks" remind me of iron sculptures of devils I purchased in Brazil---especially the male one. Everyone who visits my house runs over to them and says "These are so cute, what are they?" They blush when they get a closer look.

I wish I like camping, but I'm always worried about creatures getting into the tent!

Tasty campfire tools you have;)
