Bull or No Bull – Friday Fictioneers – 21 February

To all my Friday Fictioneers friends I want to offer an apology and explanation. First of all I want to say I hated to miss the fun of the chase last week. It was the first I had missed in over a year. It was like missing old friends and not being able to see what you concocted to answer Rochelle’s call to arms.

Here is the explanation. Ten days ago I went to the hospital due to shortness of breath. Thankfully the issue was not heart related, but rather blood clots in my lungs. While this is still a very serious condition and something I will have to deal with for a while, it ie easier to treat and I hope to be on the mend very soon.

I just could not clear my head enough to write much of anything last week, but now I am ready to re-enter the fray.

“Do you know those flowers came from her mother’s garden?” Hugh asked.


“My Elyse was a traditionalist through and through. She wanted to hold onto everything from the past.”

“That’s not a bad thing,” Jim replied.

“I suppose.”

“I know the days are hard since she has been gone,” Jim said.

“They are just long. Especially since I cannot get out so easily,” Hugh told him, rattling his heavy wooden cane noisily against his chair.

“I have always wondered, what’s with the bell?”

“No guard dog, but a guard bull.”

“You’re joking!”

“One way to know, ring the bell!”
