Hungry For Nothing – FF – 10 June 2016

While Rochelle is busy working toward a July deadline to finish her book I am enjoying the chance to see photo prompts that came around the summer before I enjoyed the world encompassing troupe known as the Friday Fictioneers.

  1. Dear Joe,

    I’m with the kid. I love the sea and would like to become certified in scuba. Not many places to dive in Kansas and Missouri. (I live three miles from State Line 😉 ) Good story.
