Six Sentence Story: Suspect

Want to try your hand at writing, but feel too overwhelmed to write a novel?  Come join the weekly Six Sentence Stories link-up!  This week's prompt:  Suspect.  


Standing beside his Red Rider wagon, the half-pint tyke didn't realize his guilt.  No stranger to hard work and gardening, he loved to help with the harvest.  How proud everyone would be of his contribution!  The wagon could barely contain all the apples he had gathered; the green Gravensteins would make wonderful applesauce.  He was disappointed when his mother didn't even try to make applesauce with the abundant fruit.  Instead, she perfected the recipe, "Fried Green Tomatoes."

  5. Ha, ha, Kristi. Great story. I loved the ending. Tykes and other young creatures have an interesting perspective on the world, as they are learning and growing. I guess that's why I loved teaching little ones so much. When the world gives you lemons, make fried green tomatoes.

Ten Things of Thankful: Post-Thanksgiving Edition

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I'll jump right in:

1. I'm thankful for cooperative return policies. Several weeks ago, I mentioned that I had to return a range that I had purchased, and I hoped that the particular range was just a lemon and that the replacement wouldn't have the same problem. Well, unfortunately, it did. On the bright side, the store quickly picked up the second range and refunded my money. I'm putting appliance purchases on the back burner (!) for the moment. 

2. I'm thankful for temples. I went one morning this week to the temple. I'm always amazed at how much insight comes in just an hour or two of reflection. 

3. I'm thankful for my sister. She and her family came to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with her in-laws, and I got a chance to see her and her family on Wednesday. The last time I saw her was in January at our grandma's 100th birthday celebration. We feel lucky to have two visits in one year! 

4. I'm thankful for my brother. …

Last week, I was thankful for bruises that weren't breaks.  This week wasn't quite as adventurous as last, but I'm still a bit dizzy in the Wow has it just been a week since. . .  sort of way.
