Flash 55 Friday - A Puzzling Experience

She just couldn't believe all the fuss the boys were making over this. After all, blue skies, bright sunshine, and the smell of fresh clean mountain air, made a perfect day to hang one's delicate's out to dry.

But boys will be boys; curious, they were puzzled at how the outdoor clothes dryer actually worked.

OMG!! how wonderful to see you again, dear friend! your 55 is hilarious, as i can only imagine that you are :) take care and give my best to mama bird ;)

RNSANE said...

Oh, my god, I thought mine were bad. I think I would opt to hang mine inside if they looked like that. No wonder they call them
"unmentionables"! They should be "out of sight, out of mind".

Prayer Girl said...

Most of my education along these lines was of the stumbling into the truth kind. Cute 55.

Thanks for visiting and commenting.
