Friday Fictioneers is hosted by the wonderful Rochelle, the undisputed master of what I call Sound Bite Fiction.
She sets the weekly challenge, and the standard.
This week’s intriguing prompt photo comes courtesy of Jean L. Hays.
The idea, as always, is to write a story of around 100 words based on this picture, below.

Life is good.
My wife is a wonderful lady, and the kids are growing up smart, strong, and healthy.
Our little business is a great success.
Not only is it thriving financially, but it is fun.
Lots of interesting folk stop by, days are never dull.
Even the weather is good here, warm summers, mild winters.
So why am I not happy?
Why do I feel that there should be more?
I don’t have any answers.
I just know that this time tomorrow I’ll be halfway to Canada.
Or maybe New York.
I’m not telling you where I’m going.
