Microfiction Monday #14.......

Susan at Stony River hosts this fun theme each Monday, so do pop over and read the others who have signed Mr. Linky. The rules are thus:

Every Monday Susan will post a picture for the subject of your story. Microfiction means the shortest of short stories. Think Aesop's fables, comic strips, or even jokes: complete stories that can be told in under a minute. For this game, the limit is a tweetable 140 characters or fewer, including punctuation and spaces.

Here's today's picture and my contribution.

“OK open your eyes” said David.

Molly stared open mouthed

she was not impressed with the property he had bought to ‘do up’ as a holiday home!


Elaine said...

That's my idea of heaven!

Thom said...

LOL...I have to agree with Molly. If I were David I would head for the hills. LOL. Well done my friend :)

mrsnesbitt said...

lol! "Would suit owners with imagination, vision and dosh!" lol!

Valerie said...

Oh I don't know, I'm sure SOMETHING could be done to make it habitable.

Empress Bee (of the High Sea) said...

very well done! holiday home! too funny!

smiles, bee

MorningAJ said...

I bet the view's good though.
Molly will be OK as long as David pays for builders to do the work!

Nice tale this week.

evalinn said...

Lol, good luck to that project! :-)

anthonynorth said...

I think it will be a long, long holiday ;-)
Nice one.

Akelamalu said...

You like roughing it Laney? ;)

David's in the doghouse Thom - which is what Molly thinks that building is! LOL

That's a great way to describe it Mrs N!

Probably Valerie but at what cost??? LOL

Cheers Bee x

I think David's idea is to do the work himself Morning AJ :0

They'll need it Evalinn :)

Me too Anthony ;)

Daryl said...

Wonderful .. me I cant even leave a short comment or reply ...

Sylvia K said...

Yep, I think it will indeed be a LONG time before this one is ready to be called a holiday home! Fun one for the day! Enjoy your week!


Ron said...


Toooooo funny!

I have a feeling there's going to be A LOT of "doing up" on this property!

Great one, m'dear!

Happy Monday!


Shrinky said...

I take it David is an eternal optimist, but on the up-side, he's probably an incredible romantic, too. Like Molly, I'd not be quite such a happy bunny..

Very clever, as ever!

Mike Golch said...

A fixer uppper is an understatement.

g-man said...

Yep...same agent.


secret agent woman said...

Yeah, that's going to take a little work!

linda said...

thats great!! as soon as i get the chance i am going to try that too.

Jingle said...

well plotted entry.
loved it.

"K" said...

I'll take it even if she won't.

hope said...

Ah yes, I'm one of those people who can see "what if"...not good if you're in the real estate market. :O

Susan at Stony River said...

Oh boy. I'd kill him! LOL

Travis Cody said...

Yeah, that's probably a mistake!

Quilly said...

On the bright side, that's one holiday home that won't need air conditioning ....


Flowerpot said...

nice and - er - quiet I would imagine!

Dianne said...

it would be a fabulous place to spend Halloween ;)
great story lady
and thank you for all your kind comments and for always checking in on me

Indi said...

I think if you believe in miracles and have a very nice bank manager you might just pull it off!!



Mama Zen said...

But, it made a great place to hide his body!

Akelamalu said...

You just did Daryl LOL

Yep it's going to take a long time Sylvia!

Indeedy Ron ;)

David's a dreamer for sure Shrinky!

Isn't it just Mike? LOL

You know him G-man??? ;)

That's an understatement SAW LOL

Good luck Linda :)

Cheers Jingle

You're very brave K LOL

I can see the potential Hope but I don't have the finances ;)

Me too Susan LOL

I think so Trav LOL

That's trueQuilly :)

Oh definitely Flowerpot ;)

My pleasure Dianne xx

Dreams are possible Indi!

Hehe, I never thought of that Mama Zen :)

Linda said...

"Do up"?? How about bulldoze over and start again?!?

Cloudia said...

Aloha from Honolulu :)

Comfort Spiral

Spiky Zora Jones said...

Akelamalu: David would opened his eyes after a knock out blow from a purse swing. hehehe.

great view from the window though.
loved it honey. xxx

Akelamalu said...

That sounds like a good plan Linda! LOL

Ah you've been through it Cloudia ;)

Yeah that would have been my reaction too Spiky LOL

Bill ~ {The Old Fart} said...

I am still chuckling at your later post, This just added to the smiles. I think if I was David I'd go find a place to hide for awhile. Liked Quilly's responses, think of the bugs though.

Akelamalu said...

Thanks Bill, glad you enjoyed them.

Alice Audrey said...

LOL. That's too good.
