Sometimes in Winter (FF)

FF- Friday Fictioneers
Copyright - Rochelle Wisoff Shields  

I own a very small piece of property somewhere in a place you've probably never heard of. Despite its size, it is large enough for me to keep and care for several horses.

There's Ramrod, the former race horse who’s won fewer races than Hillary Clinton, Thunder Clap who loves mayonnaise on his hay, and Jokester, the one who manages to fart whenever you get behind him. 

Despite all this, I love riding each one of them, especially in the frequently falling snow.

But we can't go very far.  You see, I live in a snow globe which rests on the shelf of a little boy in Cleveland.

That's what I get for making fun of Harry Potter's scar.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Y'know, a snow globe is not a bad place to live after all.  To visit your nearest neighbor you have to travel to infinity, the schools aren't great or even existent, and you can't get a good corned beef sandwich anywhere. But at least there's a half dozen Starbucks.

Sure, I  wish some of the other Friday Fictioneers would come visit but they're busy writing posts based on the picture prompt above, which you can access by clicking here.

Hey, don't shake me!  Ramrod and I get nauseous.

:) A place of relative safety these days.

Yeah, we elected Clinton down here!

I would be too afraid of snow globe warming. Stay safe my friend in a bubble.

plaridel said...

well, at least, he's in a safe place.

Perry Block said...

The bubble is where I'm staying, at least for the next four years. Besides, snow globe warming is a Chinese snow globe myth.

Perry Block said...

There's no women here.

Brokeback Snowglobe Mountain?

Hey, what's wrong with farting when people get behind you? They don't need to be sticking their nose up your butt, sniffing around back there anyway. Jokester sounds like my kind of horse, and I don't even like horses.

But I am fond of snowglobes.

Loved the twist at the end. Made me smile. Reminded me of The Indian In the Cupboard.

Never mess with a scarred wizard.

Alicia said...

Delightful! I love the horse's quirks although I'm afraid I wouldn't want to be stuck inside any kind of globe with Jokester.

I'm sure there is a way out. Maybe the horses know it. Fun story.

Perry Block said...

In that case I'm not inviting you over!

Perry Block said...

Nothing wrong with farting. It's farting in a confined space where I happen to be.

Perry Block said...

Thanks, Linda! Only thing is that mine is more The Jew in the Cupboard!

Perry Block said...

NOW you tell me!

Perry Block said...

I asked the horses if they did and they said "neigh!" Terrible joke.

Perry Block said...

I'm more concerned about all that mayo!

Haha..wonderfully imaginative!
