A Nor’easter From Down South: Microfiction Monday!

Posted on Jan 30, 2011 by Lisa Ricard Claro   32 Comments | Posted in microfiction

Microfiction Monday is here once again.   I’m looking forward to reading all the creative stories that others have written.  Visit Susan at Stony River, who hosts this fun meme, to link to other blogs and tales to match the picture below (all 140 characters or less). Enjoy!

The old salt cackled. 
“I bet Marge a bucket ‘o oysters that nor’easter’d blow clean through town. 
Ha, ha! Cain’t git no cleaner’n that!”

* * * * * * * *
“May be from Amy’s dory. Hope not.” Sal sniffed. 
Bo shuddered. “I told her the storm’d come up quick. 
This looks bad, Sal. Mighty bad.”

I have three new followers to greet! Welcome — to  Margo Benson, Tony Benson and Francinehvr (for whom no link was available). Thanks for looking around Writing in the Buff and deciding to stay. I appreciate your time and look forward to getting to know you.
I hope everyone has a terrific Monday. I’ll be hosting a blog contest for February and will tell you about it later in the week, so please check back for details!
Til next time –

    Looks like Marge will be enjoying oysters tonight. She's even got something to clean them with! As ever, I have nothing but admiration for someone who can come up with more than one MF for an image.Hope you'll stop by: Bad Fit

    Now I have to say that you hit both the humorous (#1) and the poignant (#2) out of the park. Most people shied away from serious, too–so I'm glad you took the bull by the horns.Have a great week.
