Saturday Centus #63

It's Saturday Centus again - in a nutshell, Jenny Matlock gives us a prompt from either herself or a guest submitter and then we have to write 100 or words less related to the prompt (the prompt doesn't count toward the 100 words) Then link it up to her blog. It's open until the following Saturday, so that means you have all week to participate by either reading or writing.  The prompt is in blue.

This week is a shake up week with ONLY 25 words plus the prompt.

I'm still continuing my story.  You can go back here to read the  Past centus's

"I don't envy you cutting that grass.  Gramps would always say I'm not getting any younger when he did it".

"I just started and I'm already thinking that".

If we even HAD grass here, there's no way I would dream of cutting it in this heat! Good use of the prompt!!!

Great job ! I admire that you are still continuing your story... I'm enjoying every new episode !

As for grass, it's either burnt by the heat here or grows too fast 'cause of the rain...luckily, our boys cut it for us !

Love this continuation! As to cutting grass in our heat down here in Georgia - forget it!

Great job.

Jingle said...

smart move.
hope things get better after you write it out, aloud. said...

You did so much with so few words. I can visualize this one. Great job.

Dazee Dreamer said...

The glory of getting old is that you get to pass jobs like that onto your children...

Kudos for the series....a thankless job i can only imagine.

Anna said...

Wow, a series. I've given up the idea of writing a series on my blog. If my fictional characters (Sanna Rumsten and John Tell) fit into the prompt, so be it. But I can't keep an intrigue going over time. I like the freedom of being able to write something entirely different if it suits the prompt.
I suspect that you have an outline that you follow, or perhaps not?
In the end you will have a finished story. Well done!

Best wishes,
Books are heavy-Anna's SC wk 63

Those old timers are a hardy bunch for sure!

I can barely stand to hang out the clothes in this heat. I watch my neighbor cutting grass in midday wearing jeans!


I like what you did with this!
