Good Wednesday evening, my Readers! It is that time of the week where Rochelle, our feisty leader, sends us a photo (thank you, Nick Allen, for graciously allowing us to borrow it) and we must use our grey matter and imagination to come up with a story that inspires, excites, entices, horrifies, or just plain amuses you. From around the world comes all sorts of wonderful stories. I kid you not! Just click on the blue frog below and you’ll have access to anywhere from 70 to 100 stories! Including this one. Hey… how about you add yours? Click on Rochelle‘s name and find out the how-tos and then add your story to the list!
In Their Care
As a self-sufficient and capable man, he was no stranger to the myriad tools stored neatly in his huge shed. From saws to planers to drills; name it, he had it ~ all bearing a well-worn patina. Also parked neatly were a lawnmower/snowblower, a four-wheeler and a big log-splitter. The man could take care of himself.
Until he couldn’t.
His grandsons minded the place for him. They drained the gas from the vehicles, sold off his tools for peanuts, turned the house into a pigstye. The lawn had become one giant junkyard.
All that was left undisturbed were his oil cans.
