Friday Fictioneers ~~ September 13, 2013

It’s that time of the week again! Well, I know I’m a tad early, but got appointments on Friday and so I wanted to make sure I got FF’s in this week!

Also wanted to thank our hostess Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for  manning the wheel again this week. Also wanted to thank her for her birthday wishes! Thank you kind lady! (It’s my birthday today, but shhhhh!) 🙂

If you want to join FF or read other great stories just click on Rochelle’s name and off you go to a wonderland of words!

THE CHALLENGE:

Write a one hundred word story that has a beginning, middle and an end. (No one will be ostracized for going a few words over the count.)

THE KEY:

Make every word count.

“See her Charles?”

“Yes, I see her.”

“She’s beautiful! Just think we saw her like our great grandparents did!”

“Not exactly sis.”

“Well okay, not exactly, as we aren’t immigrants. Thanks to them.”

“They didn’t stay here long before they moved to Milwaukee.”

“What did they use to call Milwaukee, back then?”

Charles smiled, “the German Athens.”

“Our great-grandparents were part of Milwaukee’s great beer industry.”

“Yes, they helped in establishing  PabstSchlitzMiller, and Blatz.”

“I’m quite proud of our ancestors Charles, even if I don’t drink beer.”

Charles laughed, “I know sis, I hate the taste of beer too.”
