After missing last week due to moving, I return to Friday Fictioneers! Every Friday, writers from all around the world write 100 word (or thereabouts) flash fiction based on a photo posted that Wednesday on Rochelle Wisoff-Fields’ blog.

“Give us a call when you get a chance. And don’t concern yourself about the money.”
