#FF — Fall Adventure


PHOTO PROMPT © Susan Eames

By fall of 2021, the pandemic is gasping its last. Everything fun was back on the table.

Bart pushed himself away from the keyboard with a satisfied grin.

Honey, you’ll never guess where we’re going for our anniversary.”

On December tenth, they were riding a snow tractor to the lodge at the top of the mountain.

Bart, I knew there was a good reason why I married you. You promised grand adventure and here we are.”

Marnie and Bart snuggled close in their parkas.

Their first– and anniversary – day snow-shoeing, Marnie slipped and fell down the mountain.

  1. That reminds me of the guy who ,…….much lesser version of it though….. after coming home from the military during wartime, gets hit by truck or stray bullet

    There will be a lot of ‘survived the pandemic only to…’ stories in 2021! Funny, in a twisted way.

    Safety is relative. Right now, my priority is to not get the Rona in the few months before the vaccine is widely available. We’re in the middle of a spike right after the announcement of three vaccines.

      Oh boy, I hadn’t heard we were spiking after seeing a light of hope. It figures. Seeing your “Rona” I just thought of something. I think it is time for Weird Al to do a parody on My Sharona.

        I’ve heard for months as soon as the cold weather hit, we were in for another spike. There have been a lot of gatherings around the election and now holiday gatherings and travel. I read today, we may have to wear masks for another year because people who refuse to wear masks are perpetuating spreading.

        When I first heard about the corona virus, I started singing, “M-m-m-my corona.” I saw later that somebody did a full parody. It wasn’t Weird Al, but you can probably find it on YouTube.

    Ooh. I guess leaving home after nearly two years of quarantining does have its risks.

      Well if that is her foot in the cast in the hospital, I would say yes. She may never go snow-shoeing again, but… I hope she takes up a safer hobby and is happy with it also. Thank you for reading and your comment, Plaridel.

    Nothing worse than planning a great adventure and having an accident come in and foil the plans! (I refuse to think there was anything nefarious going on)
