I've been blog-negligent this week, but am procrastinating working on taxes to do some writing. :-) Linking up with Six Sentence Stories. This week's prompt: Sink.
The children, undeterred by the grey skies, met in the "back back" yard, where the barbed wire and electric wire fence delineated the property line and the pasture. Perhaps the pussy willows would be ready to pick, or perhaps the friendly cows would wrap their rough tongues around proffered greens. One brave child conducted the time-honored experiment, touching a single blade of grass to the electric wire; all were relieved to know that the adventure was a "go." The barbed wires were gingerly spread apart to allow the little explorers passage. As the last child stepped forward to cross, her foot came, but her boot remained firmly stuck in the mud. The exploration mission was aborted, and the rescue mission began.
Thanks for adventures!
