“Grammy, what’cha lookin’ at in this picha?”, the tiny four year old asked, her pigtails dancing as she struggled to pronounce the words. The old white haired face took on a toothless smile. “At a cheetah patterned dress I’d never be able to fit into, on a mannequin,Hon” Continue reading “3 Line Tales Week 49 – Ghost of a Memory”

Here’s mine for the week

Pat pat came the sound from next to him. The only other sounds in the quiet, dark landscape were that of his pants and the thud of his shoes. No one believed in his dream to win the Olympic medal, no one wanted to accompany him on his midnight runs. No one except Trevor.

TLT actually turns 50 this week, I missed a few weeks at the start and a few in between so I’m still at 45.
