This month, the prompts are being provided by Elephant’s Child.
This week's prompts are:
LEST WE FORGET by Granny Annie
"This gall-darn machine is simply a work of fiction" Granddad muttered. "I can't figure out the skulduggery it was created to perform."
"It's a telephone!" the grandchildren all responded delightfully. "We promise it is not a trap. Listen carefully and you can hear Grandma."
Granddad groaned in fear as he moved the handset to his ear. Soon as he heard a soft whispering "Jeremiah, is that you dear?" Grandma Myrtle was trying to coax her husband to speak into this long forgotten invention.
Jeremiah threw the phone into the corner. He was not deft in his selection of ways to rid himself of the device. That could not have been Myrtle talking to him. She was out in the fertile field under her umbrella completing the Fall picking. He could see her as plain as day.
The family prayed that Granddad would be better once Grandma could come back from the hospital. She was the only one who could calm him.
