Friday Fictioneers is hosted by the wonderful Rochelle, the undisputed master of what I call Sound Bite Fiction.
She sets the weekly challenge, the standard, and the prompt photo.
The idea, as always, is to write a story of around 100 words based on this picture, below, which this week is supplied by me.
Click here to hear the author read his words:
Tony is a good guy.
He is easy-going, helpful, and he gets along with almost everyone.
Even in our community of mixed cultures he is pretty much universally liked.
He’s a bit like that character in The Great Escape, played by James Garner, I think.
He can get you anything you need.
Now that icy winter has arrived with floods and storms, I am grateful for his help.
You see, I am old, and I really feel the cold.
So if I don’t have any cats, he’ll find me plenty of small dogs.
Yep, for my fire.
