Here we are for another week. Today we’ve gathered in a virtual yard near some virtual telephone lines on which pigeons have gathered. Our hostess for this group meeting is the talented and gracious author and artist, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. We’re the Friday Fictioneers group. Our challenge this week and every week is to each write an original 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 Roger Bultot. Thanks, Roger.
To read the other stories by the group, just click on the link given below, then on the little blue frog in the blue box.
The link for this week’s stories is as follows:
Genre: Nonfiction Humor
Word Count: 100 Words
WHERE THERE’S A WILL by P.S. Joshi
Pigeons have historically been great message carriers. Having had a mother pigeon build a nest on our window ledge and raise her young, I can understand why they got the messages through despite shot and shell.
I have never in my life seen an animal so determined as a pigeon, especially the female of the species.
We have to keep bedroom windows closed because I fought a losing battle to remove nest material.
I finally gave in to the bathroom ledge. Mother pigeon no sooner raises one brood than she lays a couple more eggs. It’s a manic production line.
