Trifextra: Week Sixty

This weekend, we are revisiting a prompt we’ve done before.  We are giving you three words and asking that you add another 33 to them to make a complete 36-word response.  You may use the words in any order you choose.

Our three words are:

You and me, Singin’ in the Rain

remember?

It’s a reasonable day today and thus we have the back doors standing open. This means that Chloé can come and go as she pleases (she refuses to use the cat flaps and expects us to give her ingress and egress via the sitting room window). We were taking a coffee break in between sorting out the van, when we heard a strange Chloé-type noise. I did not like it. I wondered if she hadContinue readingThanks!

    I really love that first stanza – it totally sets the tone and the background. The whole thing has some great drama to it. One small thing – I almost missed the last line, the way you have it placed between the picture and the references.

    This is in lovely gritty style, a real acknowledgement of the past, and how life was.
