Here we are for another week. Today we’re revisiting a busy road with a lot of sheep in front of and hindering the progress of a car. Our hostess for this weekly gathering 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 write an original story with no more than 100 words not including the title. It’s supposed to have a beginning, middle, end, and follow the picture prompt for the week.Β This week’s prompt is a rerun taken by Sandra Crook and requested by Jennifer Pendergast. Thanks, Sandra, and Jennifer. Here then is the same story I wrote the first time plus a few tiny changes.

To read the other stories by the group members, 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: Fantasy Humor

Word Count: 100 Words


Bo Peep was crying and wringing her hands. She had lost her whole flock of sheep. She’d searched high and low, back and forth.

Whatever would she do? Her family depended on her. She’d never been in such trouble.

Until evening, everything had been fine. Then they disappeared. She thought she heard them so where could they be?

Little Boy Blue came along and offered to help. She explained her problem.

He went, looked around, and came back to her.

“Peep,” he said. “aren’t those the sheep over there?”

“Where?” she asked.

He shook his head. “You need glasses, Peep.”

    • Thanks, Alicia. I’m happy you enjoyed the story and it made you smile both times. Two years is a long time Isn’t it. I sometimes have trouble finding things I’ve tucked away in the documents part of my laptop. It’s hard when you forgot what you filed it under. I can’t resist free downloads so I have a big file. πŸ˜€ — Suzanne


    • Thanks, Teagan. Yes, it was a good photo. I seem to remember Sandra took it in France where she and her husband have a boat on the canals. I’m happy you enjoyed the story and it made you laugh. Huge hugs to you also. πŸ˜€ — Suzanne

  1. Aww, very sweet, Suzanne. Very refreshing to read something light and upbeat for a change. The Wizard of Id had a cartoon where a peasant goes to the wizard and says that his cow gives no milk. Later, he brings it in and it’s a BULL! The last frame has the wizard fitting the peasant for glasses saying, “This should clear up your barking horse mystery.” Hahahaha!
    Anyway, Boy Blue can go get the cows out of the corn now before he falls asleep on the job … again.
    Fun stuff, Suzanne!

    • Hilarious, Kent. I really miss the Wizard of Id. We don’t have it in the paper here. Yes, Boy Blue better also get busy and go do his job. I’m happy you enjoyed my story. I had fun writing it . πŸ˜€ — Suzanne
