Flash Fiction Friday- tributes to new friends


every friday write a short story of 55 words
no more no less and then report it to the g-man!!


"A gratitude list for Fridays notes

to Syd who makes me stop and ponder

for fireman johns questions and quotes

to shadows poems that make me ponder

and for Dr. John's lovable groaners

thanks to g-man for bringing us all together.

and blogging here brings me new faith

for a world uniting in cyber space."

there's my shot at a sappy groaner for you, not as clever as Dr. John, but I wanted to try to tribute to a sweet person whom I only had the honor of knowing through this bit of cyber space we all share. it is amazing to me that this little piece of hardware on this makeshift desk can bring me to know some of the most endearing people on the planet. and 10 years ago this was absolutely unheard of. definitely shows there is a God and he probably reads e-prayers daily!! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and can appreciate those in your lives today.

I didn't do it sweetie, I think that kind, giving, caring, and honest people seek each other out!
You are a super mom, exceedingly grateful, and a Damn Fine Human Being.
Talented too!

I'm too new at this to have "known" Dr. John, but tributes like yours make me realize what a special person he was. I'm sure he's smiling at all the love pouring his way.

Thanks so much for this. You make me smile as I read about your garden, see photos of your kids and imagine your great coffee.
