Cheese and Crackers – Friday Fictioneers

Good Wednesday, my peeps! It is Friday Fictioneers time and this week we have a sorta special. Rochelle and I decided to link our stories, just for fun. So…if you haven’t already, you really should read hers first πŸ˜‰ then mine… Our lovable clown, Russell, is the “hero” of our stories so… Russell, just know, we absolutely adore you!

If you want the rules and regs, well, you’ve already seen them on Rochelle’s blog, right? If you want to simply link your story, please click on the blue frog…

Cheese and Crackers

Shelley and Dale were hot and sweaty from their hike. Shelley said it would be nice to cool off in Gayer’s pond but worried, saying he was mean as they come.

“Looks harmless to me. Offer him a drawing.”

Shelly would have none of that as she felt he had no clue about art.

“Hey! Draw him with that clown nose he likes so much. Oh, and put that bloody invisible box he goes on and on about. Hey Farmer Gayer! How ’bout Shelley draw a picture of you in exchange for a swim?”

“Lemme guess, I’ll be all purple?”

  1. Dear Dale,

    He’ll never get my purple crayon and just let him try to take away my invisible box. πŸ˜‰ Hiking with you has been great fun. In person some day, I hope. ❀

  2. My Baby, she wrote me a letter…. It was a Q – I think. It’s hard to tell, in orange crayon. They won’t let them have pens, pencils or other sharp objects in ‘The Home.’
    Other than my blither-blather…. It was a cute little story.
    I think that Farmer Gayer is letting that shovel get him down. With a name like that, any portrait should be in rainbow. 😯

  3. Purple prose indeed. Russell’s going to come in for a lot of stick this week, and you were first in the queue. I expect you’ll be back in bed before noon though. Nicely done, Dale.

  5. Y’all make me feel sorry for poor Farmer Gayer!! Looks as if he’s digging a hole for a fruit tree in the next section of his garden! You’ll want some fresh apples, peaches, or pears after one of your hikes over the next year or so! Maaaaaybe, if you’re nice to him, he’ll plant a purple plum tree for you!

    • It goes back to once, the photo for the prompt did not appear… so there was an “invisible” box and Russell’s been using it ever since. It pops up occasionally. And you know, it’s a question of time before you make it into one of his stories, Jilly…


  6. Thanks, Dale. Wow, I learned a lot about FF history tonight by reading this. I’m sure there’s a dead body in that invisible box, although there are too many suspects to point the finger. BTW I recently bought myself a violet coloured lipstick for a bit of fun. My daughter was all for it until I threatened to wear it to Church on Mother’s Day. She has now made it clear mothers don’t wear purple lipstick. Little does she know, that she just fired up my rebellious spirit. I’ll be one of those naughty parents who rebel against their kids.
    Best wishes,


  7. Well done, and I enjoyed your dual hiking posts. I hope his pond is somewhere else, though. That little puddle doesn’t look appealing at all. πŸ™‚
    Ps: I did find the way to download my own icon to InLinkz. Took a bit of fiddling—then I discovered I’d downloaded the wrong one. 😦 Oh well. practice makes perfect.

  8. Like they say, when life gives you lemons … who am I kidding? Unless life gives you water and sugar, your lemonade is gonna SUCK.

    I don’t know why I said that, other than it’s as purple for me as it gets. This is the Eggplant Trilogy. I’ll have mine over easy.

    Big hug for ya, Dale! πŸ™‚

  9. Dear Watusi Canuck,

    You should be careful hanging out with the Purple Pygmy. Someone might mistake you two for runaways from the circus and call P.T. Barnum. That’s about the long and short of it.

    Enjoy your swim,
    Backhoe Bob

  10. Yes, a harmless piece of drawing. What could it do? other than being all purple. There’ll be no swimming for the girls, I guess.
    Enjoyed the two of you pairing up your stories together. πŸ™‚

  11. LOLOL … I have not laughed so much in one day. You guys are terrific together. GOSH … talk about partners in crime. Your book could be titled, ‘The 3 Amigos go Wild over an Invisible Box’.
    FF will never be the same after this week. πŸ˜†πŸ˜‚

  12. I make a point to never read any other stories before I post my own. I’m glad/disappointed I stick to that rule this week. I would surely have wanted to get in on the act, and we might have saved a cat. lol
    Y’all is crazy…I love it!

  13. So, Dale, as Cousin Shelley told me yesterday, the party’s at YOUR place this time. You forgot the angel hair pasta, but you’re forgiven. After eating your lovely flowers from a few months ago, I suppose you needed a break.

    The saga continues …
