Succinctly Yours - A Microfiction Meme #38

Grandma at Grandma's Goulash provides a picture and a word prompt for this Microfiction Meme and the rules are use the photo as inspiration for a story of 140 characters OR 140 words.

Want more challenge? Use the word of the week in your story. This part is optional.

This week's word is BLUSTER here's the picture and my offering using the picture and word of the week  in 140 characters, including spaces and punctuation.

Bluster was a big attraction at the stables as the laughing horse.

What they don’t know is that he can talk too

and his grandfather is Mr Ed.

Scarily I'm old enough to remember Mister Ed!

I love Bluster.

secret agent woman said...

I remember Mr. Ed, too, although I'm not sure why since I'm too young for it. Must have seen re-runs?

Beach Bum said...

Bring Bluster over here to the States, he is sure to be many times smarter that the republicans running for president.

Catsngrams said...

I agree with Beach Bum. Bring him over we need someone smarter that what is out there.

Valerie said...

Don't laugh, but who is Mr.Ed? I laughed at the picture and at the comments (US, of course).

Daryl Edelstein said...

Good one ..

Akelamalu said...

Me too AJ! :0

Obviously you have seen the re-runs SAW ;)

I bet Bluster is smarter than most of our politicians too Beach & Catsngrams!

Mr Ed was a talking horse who had his own show called appropriately Mr.Ed. Valerie

Thanks Daryl x

SparkleFarkle said...

Your Succinctly Yours story gives a whole new meaning to laughing "stock"! (<--Livestock, that is.) Tee-hee!

Jim said...

I've seen the real, first runs, of Mr. Ed. He was regualr viewing for our family.

I think your Bluster is about ready for the big breaks, don't you? Laughing horses are hard to come by, especially one with his heritage and who can also talk.
BTW, speaking of heritage my Grandfather's line, Corkill, came from Isle of Man. Mrs. Jim and I visited in the fall of 2007.
Jim's 2007 Isle of Man visit
Just across the water, I am sure you have spent some time there in that pretty place.

Akelamalu said...

Oh very clever SparkleFarkle :)

Mr Ed was regular viewing in our house too Jim! Yes, I've been to The Isle of Man, in fact that's where we spent our annual holidays when I was a child! I wrote about it a while back. :)

Mama Zen said...

Nice one, Ake!

Mister Ed - yes, I saw the reruns too! Nice one Akela.

Ron said...

"and his grandfather is Mr Ed."


Excellent finish, m'dear!

And btw, I use to love watching Mr. Ed.

Have a wonderful Monday.....X

Pat said...

Hahaha --the WOTW is the horse's name! Good one. Bluster should cash in on his speaking ability, too! Several of us thought of Mr. Ed.

Banker Chick said...

Ah Mr Ed! I remember him well. His predecesser was Francis the talking mule. I remember them well.

Akelamalu said...

Thanks Mama Zen :)

Cheers Dumdad :)

It was a great programme wasn't it Ron? :)

Thanks Pat. Yes Mr Ed popped into a lot of people's mind with this pic.

I've never heard of Francis the talking mule Bankerchick, was it a TV show?

Kay L. Davies said...

Hey, good thinking, using "Bluster" as the horse's name. Good work, and another cheer today for Mr. Ed.

Lisa Ricard Claro said...

He's wise to keep his talking ability to himself. Poor fella would never have a moment of peace if he let on he could talk!

cheshire wife said...

Good to see someone who is happy for a change!

Judy SheldonWalker said...

I don't think I ever missed an episode of Mr. Ed and I have to agree with Catsngrams; he is definitely smarter than these Republicans running for office. My hubby says a Jack #@& would do better.

Mimi Lenox said...

I grew up on Mr. Ed The Talking Horse. You are right. He looks just like him!

anthonynorth said...

I used to enjoy Mr Ed. Nice one.

Flowerpot said...

Nuts in May

Akelamalu said...

Thanks Kay, glad you like it.

You're right Lisa, he'd be hounded if they knew he could talk.

Yes it is Cheshire Wife ;)

Can't comment on your politicians Judy as I don't know anything about them but I agree that Mr Ed was good!

The likeness struck me straight away Mimi!

Thanks Anthony

Indeed Flowerpot :)

So would I Crystal Jigsaw :)

So pleased you enjoyed it Maggie x

Grandma's Goulash said...

Is he really Mr. Ed's grandson or is that just Bluster. lol
