Good Wednesday, my Peeps! It is time for this week’s episode of Friday Fictioneers. I looked at this pic and many ideas floated around but none truly tickled me fancy. So I asked my buddy Marc, over at Sorryless, his thoughts on this pic and he said, “Lotta ways to go with that one.” and I responded with “Gimme an idea or three”. He responded: “You got your Native American angle, of course. In which you go all Rochelle and add some history to the story. You got your Eagles (the band) angle”. Oooooh. I was sold. Thank you, Marc! And, of course, thank you to Rochelle for hosting this weekly party. And thank you to Renee Heath for the use of her pretty picture.

“Don’t you think it would be romantic?”
“I do like the idea of the stars, you and me… What inspired you?”
“That song by “The Eagles”…
