Love Has No Expiration Date – FF – 3/20/15

Friday Fictioneers begins again! Please accept my apologies, the grand plans I had to read all the Fictioneers posts I could on my trip to Chicago went awry and left me wishing I had a better tablet, better wi-fi and more time. Here is to a better plan this week.

Freida loved to shop by the home improvement magazines. Her favorite highlighted the outside décor.

John wanted Freida to be happy, so when shopping for a new house he took her magazine.

He was almost giddy when he found the perfect place. It even had the outdoor arrangment she had gushed about repeatedly.

Freida sat with the blindfold on, patiently riding to their new home. “You’re going to love it,” John said.

Freida’s excitement ceased when she viewed her new backyard.

“What’s wrong?” John asked.

“Where did you see this?”

“This magazine,” John pointed.

“Ahhh, that is thirty years old!”

  1. Dear Joe,

    Oops. Tastes can change in thirty years. BTW I would suggest a space between his shopping trip and her sitting blindfolded. It would help to give us the feeling of time passage.




  2. Yeah, things were pretty bleak back in ’85’. Dire Straits released Brothers in Arms. Max Headroom and MTV were rampant on the TV. I hope she gets a new backyard.
