Here we are gathered together again to discuss our original stories for the group, Friday Fictioneers. Today we’re gathered in the virtual sunporch of a rural home near a small lake. Our hostess for this gathering is the gracious and talented author and artist, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. The challenge for this group is to write a story with no more than 100 words. It’s supposed to have a beginning, middle, end, and follow the picture prompt for the week. This week’s prompt was supplied by Georgia Koch. Thanks Georgia.

When we happened to check below, we noticed a slight leak. Our plans abruptly changed, and we headed for port.
To others it was an old row boat. To us it was The Happy Times
