Friday 12/4/09 - "THE HAPPIER COUPLE"

FLASH FICTION FRIDAY 55

"THE HAPPIER COUPLE"



The happy couple heard many blessings from members of the wedding party.

Most said, "Be as happy in 50 years as you are today."

The officiant said, "May you be not as happy, but immeasurably happier in 50 years."

Eight (56) years passed.

They laid together beneath a shady willow dreaming of T-bone steak biscuits.

Was that 50 years in terms of dog years? It is nice but a little sad if the dogs died and were buried together. I am still missing my old girl.
