WORDS FOR WEDNESDAY

Fun prompts for today.  Thank you Margaret Adamson and Sue Fulton for the words as well as sharing photos from Bill.  Thank you Elephant's Child for posting the words on your blog.  Here is my composition for this week. 

Hold on to your hat
and
A penny for your thoughts

OUT OF HIS MIND

CASTAWAY by Granny Annie



The Minnow set sail from the dock. It was a beautiful, calm day. Perfect for an outing on the lake. Suddenly a strong wind began to swell from the north. Mary Ann was terrified. Our skipper cried out, “Hold on to your hats!”. The boat began to twist and buck, caught in a whirlpool. The professor assured us all would be well. .



Rocks and sand pierced my skin. I opened my eyes. It appeared we were all yet alive though Mrs. Howell was crying and Thurston coughed. It seemed we were marooned on some unknown island. As my senses began to return I saw the Gilligan next to me. “A penny for your thoughts Ginger” he said.





Hope you will participate in this week's challenge.  Click on Elephant Child's link to get all the details.

  5. this made me laugh and remember my days of watching Gilligan's Island. Those silly stuffed-shirt Howells, Mary-Ann with her cream pies and no kitchen in sight. And bumbling Gilligan of course.
