Flash Fiction 55
Friday 55 Flash Fiction is brought to you by G-man (Mr Knowitall). The idea is you write a story in exactly 55 words. If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you've posted your 55.Here is today's story.

Last week I went to Church with my friend Paul .
The preacher shook the pulpit and poured out fire and brimstone.
Now I know for sure that I’m going to
go to hell and it scares me.
I wish it was not so. But I checked and my shoe has a very dirty


Since I discovered it was okay I am writing a second flash 55 which will be a continuous story but a complete story every week. Here then is the tenth chapter in the exciting ongoing adventures of Sir Laughsalot and Robberhood

Robberhood and his men had piles and piles of stolen gold and silver. They had no place to spend it. Trees do not take gold or silver and there were no shops in the woods.
So Robberhood had a suit of armor made of silver and thus became the first great knight in shining armor.

News From Pigeon Falls

The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life is back to normal

For some reason that I can neither understand nor explain today's Pigeon Falls after the above introduction ends up as a flash 55. Must be some kind of learned response.

Tommy UK went out to the Lake of the Loons to sit and think. He was very sure that he had heard the voice in the darkness before but he could not remember where. As he sat and watched the whale surface it suddenly came to him. It was the very helpful guide in Canada.

Of course the dragons will be busy today you can see them HERE.

Wrap UP
A really rough breathing day. We think because the humidity was so high and it was hot. In any case I hauled the oxygen tank all day. I got Saturday's post ready and hope it auto posts because my grandsons will be sleeping in the computer room in the morning. I visited a lot of flash 55s and enjoyed them all. There were stories,poetry, and every day experiences. I try to visit them all but there is no linksy and I'm sure I miss some. I visted all the blogs that left a comment yesterday. Now I need a breathing treatment.

It's okay if your shoes go to hell. You won't need them in heaven.

So, the tour guide was more than he seemed? Interesting.

Dr. John!!! Your 55 is super. I too have a dirty sole [I stepped in Bubblegum the other day], we'll meet again someday.

Now really...take 2 aspirins and call me in the morning. We'll figure out a way to cleanse the SOLE before Sunday's sermon!! [kidding of course]

I liked both 55's and would much enjoy hanging out with anyone called Sir Laughsalot!

I think if you at the gates of hell, it will be to help the likes of me "turn around."

My 9yo has a dirty sole. He tracked dirt all over the kitchen this morning before getting on the school bus.
Last day of school today! :)

I did not break my promise today. It almost killed me... but I kept it!

I always wondered where the idea for a suit of shining silver came from!

But of course! The Canadian guide! Now, why didn't I think of that??? And still we get no closer to an answer...

Throw those SHOES away!!!

All of your 55's are excellent. At first, i read the Robberhood one to read that his merry men had piles. I had to read again.
