Do you ever drive by your old neighborhood where you grew up? I do from time to time. I was raised only about 30 minutes from my current home.
I created this short story from the art I did in an old book, as part of the “Word Play Painting Class” I took online from Lynn Whipple.
It was a cool fall day in late October when Ellen decided to take a short drive –
Past the home where she was raised in the old neighborhood –
The new owner had changed the house color but everything else looked much the same.
Ellen remembered her childhood friends and all the times they went “Trick or Treating” in the neighborhood –
Dressing up in handmade costumes of cats, ghosts and little old ladies…
Ellen was about ready to drive away when the lady next door came outside to get her mail. Ellen was surprised to recognize her neighbor, Dee Dee – as she thought she had moved away –
Ellen hopped out of her car and waived hello to Dee Dee! When Dee Dee saw Ellen, she broke into a wide grin.
They started chatting and Dee Dee invited Ellen into her home for a cup of coffee –
Reruns of the show, “Super Cat” were playing on the television (rather loudly I must say) so Ellen was thankful when Dee Dee turned the volume off –
As Ellen sat down on the couch, the phone rang. Dee Dee was answering the phone, when Ellen noticed a ______ in the room! (Now it’s your turn to help complete Part 1 of the story in a clean, humorous way). I hope you play along…
I will post my ending to the story in Part 2 next week!
Happy Storytelling! 🙂
