Good Thursday evening (here anyway!) my peeps!  Today’s FF is brought to you by Ted Strutz‘ fabulous photo, as chosen by our stellar leader, Rochelle.

Till then, as this is the last Friday Fictioneer of the Year, please allow me to wish each and every one of you a most wonderful and Happy New Year!  Here’s to 2018!

“I’ve entered a ‘Young Astronomers Of Tomorrow Contest’.  What do you think?”

“It is amazing.  Where did you get all the parts and do they move?”

“Uncle John told me I could have whatever I wanted from his garage and voilà!  And yes it does, watch this!”

Kellie pressed a button and all began to twist and turn.

Mom’s jaw dropped.  “You will go far in life.”
