NOTE: I’m sorry it took me so long to read the stories of other writers this week. I was listening and watching, as were many people, to the U.S. Presidential Election results and aftermath, some of which is still continuing. My own daughter, a female and part Indian (she could be taken for Hispanic) called from the U.S. in tears and I talked to her for an hour. She had been calm at first but the young actors around her were yelling and crying and scared her. It’s an alarming time.
Here we are for another week. Today we’re out gazing at roofs. We’ve gathered to discuss our original stories for the week. This is the Friday Fictioneers group. Our hostess for the gathering is the talented and gracious author and artist, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. The challenge for each of us this week and every week is to write a 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. This week’s prompt was provided by Sandra Crook. Thanks, Sandra.
To read the other stories by group members, just click on the link given below, then on the little blue frog in the blue box.

SANTA’S MESSAGE By P.S. Joshi
Higgstown was settled by artists and liberal architects noted for bold innovations. The roofs there were colorful and shaped differently than other cities and there were no chimneys.
This caused one problem. When Santa came through delivering presents, he couldn’t land his sleigh with reindeer on those roofs.
Santa called a conference and the word was sent out to parents by his helpers in all the department stores.
To insure your children get presents, please do the following:
1. Clear a space for my sleigh.
2. Leave out a door key under a mat.
