Here we are again and this week we’re gathered around a basket of old photos. We’ve come together to discuss our original stories for the week. This is the Friday Fictioneer’s 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 counting the title. It’s supposed to have a beginning, middle, end, and be inspired by the picture prompt for the week. This week’s prompt was provided by Ted Strutz. Thanks, Ted. To read the other stories by group members, just click on the link below, then on the smiling frog. Next, follow the given direction.

A Thing of Value By P.S. Joshi
We had three types of photos when I was growing up.
The oldest were those in a shoebox, my mother’s family photos. Then there were my dad’s photos from his time in the U.S. Navy. Next were the newer pictures of my childhood.
When my dad’s mother died, we got really old photos. These were of grandma’s family with women in mutton leg sleeves, and my dad’s and his brother’s childhoods.
There are now my children’s photos and my daughter’s colossal wedding album. The photographers used her wedding pictures in their ads. It was a Halloween theme.
