Vacation in Roswell, New Mexico – Friday Fictioneers

Good Wednesday-Friday, my peeps!  You know it, it’s Friday Fictioneers time!  This week I’m doing something new.  Frank over at A Frank Angle, wanted to play indirectly by suggesting a collaboration of sorts with me.  I send him this week’s photo prompt, he then gives me the title or idea.  So voilà!  This here is the result 😉  I really did try to stay away from dialogue.  Couldn’t do it for this one. Hope y’all don’t mind!

Thank you always to Rochelle for keeping us in line – or doing her best to 😉 .  This week, she chose this photo from Ted Strutz.  Thank you, Ted, for allowing us to use and abuse it for this challenge!

Should this picture jump up at you and makes you think of something to say, then please, by all means, join our merry band of misfits and share it with us!  Click on Rochelle’s name for the rules and regs or click on the blue frog below to read more interpretations…

Vacation in Roswell, New Mexico

“You have GOT to be kidding me.”  Shanna watched Charlie set up his camera and tripod in the middle of the field, using the car lights to see.

“What?  So far, we have done all the stuff you wanted to do:  Farmer and Artisan’s Market, Peco Flavors Winery, and we toured the International Air Center – ok, that was for me.  Still, can’t I just do this?

Shanna sighed.  “Yes, of course.  But c’mon, you know it was proven that it wasn’t a UFO that landed way back in ’47.”

“So they say, Shanna, so they say. Can’t hurt to look, right?”

    • In that town the dream never died that there will be a real UFO sighting one day. Their tourism industry thrives because of it.

  1. True. He probably didn’t complain when she bought the overpriced organic stuff at the markets. And neither will she when the aliens kidnap them for experiments. Though that wine might help.

    • Thank you, Irene. Was our first attempt and, as a result, I went into a direction I never would have considered. Glad it worked!

    • Dear Rochelle,

      Well, from what I’ve seen on the photos of the town, you are bound to meet a cardboard or blown-up version!!

      So glad you did. As for Frank… I may just “use” his services again periodically!

      Lotsa love,

      Dale

  2. Connie has tolerated my fishing while on vacation, and I’ve gone to flea markets and antique stores (though it pains me). Hope he captures some memories here.

    • As it should be…a little for you, a little for her…
      As for Charlie, well the tourist stores have plenty to sell, of he’s not so successful…😉

  3. I like the way you allowed us to “travel along” and “listen in” on Charlie’s and Shanna’s “discussion.” All the while, I wondered what was really out there. 🙂

  4. So very well done, Dale.
    The story felt so real, with the arguments and transparency between the couple. I am glad Charlie still believes and hope that characteristic is favourable to their relationship in some way.
    As others have said, great dialogue.
