Here we are again another week. We’ve gathered this time at a campsite 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 counting 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 Jan Wayne Fields, Rochelle’s husband. Thanks, Jan.

CAMPING IN QUEBEC by P.S. Joshi

Before I was born, my dad used to go camping and fishing in Quebec, Canada. On one trip, he took my mother with him.

He’d carefully fastened the camping equipment to the top of his car. At least he thought he had.

At one stop they discovered all the equipment had loosened and fallen off.

He drove back to the nearest village he’d passed through and went to the village priest. Dad knew he’d speak English.

They waited while the priest inquired. Sure enough, all the equipment was returned.

Dad was impressed by the honesty of those French-Canadian people.

Here we are again this week. Today we’re sitting in virtual folding chairs across from a virtual tourist attraction where three cars are buried slanting skyward. We’re here to once more discuss our original stories for the week. This is the Friday Fictioneer’s group. Our hostess is the gracious and talented author and artist, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. The challenge for each of us 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 provided for the week. This week’s prompt was supplied by Jean L. Hays. Thanks, Jean.

LOIS’ FIRST CAR by P.S. Joshi

Lois’ first car was bought by her dad using the small amount of money left her by her grandfather. When he made out the Will, he’d been divorced by her grandmother and said, “Lois is probably the only one who’ll outlive Martha.”

Time proved him almost right. Grandma Martha died at the age of 97.

Lois kept a diary. She wrote:

“Dad and I went to the downtown used car lot. Dad favored an old, black, four-door sedan.

“I looked inside and said, ‘Dad, I can see the ground through a hole in the floor.'”

“Good enough,” he said.
