Tuesday – Anything Possible – Creative Kue #119 by Keith Channing

Keith explains. “Using this photo (below) as inspiration, write a short story, flash fiction, scene, poem; anything, really; and either put it (or a link to it) in a comment or email it to me at keithkreates@channing.fr before 6pm next Sunday (if you aren’t sure what the time is where I live, this link will tell you). If you post it on your own blog or site, a link to this page would be appreciated, but please do also mention it in a comment here – pingbacks don’t often work.

Go on. You know you want to. Let your creativity and imagination soar. I shall display the entries, with links to your own blog or web site, next Monday.”

    LOL… I was imagining Ireland and how much I’d like to visit its west coast. And, in my reverie, I was there and loving the experience, and then I read the post and find out their plane has crashed and they’re near the end of the earth…and… Oh, the suspense a thriller writer creates… Well done, John.

    1. I think the relationship is in big trouble for sure. Thanks, Jill. 😀

  3. I wonder who’s at fault. Him for doing a shoddy check or the rental company for not doing one. I mean, a guy can’t just take the plane to a BP and fill her up.

    1. Those pesky wings get in the way. Thanks, Charles.

      1. Just cut them off and distract gravity with a shiny weather balloon.

      2. Good solution. I like the idea of a weather balloon and lawn chair.

      3. Much easier than hundreds of balloons and a house.

  4. Mr and Mrs Donner and their children? Nicely done John. I especially like the “I waved the insurance” part. That would be my luck.

    1. He thought American Express would cover it. Ha ha ha. Thanks, Dan 🙂

  5. Waiving the insurance on a rental plane is a bit silly, isn’t it? Mind you – seems in keeping with this man’s general laissez-faire attitude. Nice one, as ever, John.

    1. Thanks, Keith. I don’t think this couple’s relationship is long for this world. 😀

  6. As Gwen said – well done! I didn’t know what you would do with this prompt, but it wasn’t that! I still say a book compilation of these would do very well! Perhaps you could have John Cannon featured in the Foreword. Don’t mind me… ‘silly Monday’.

  7. Finisterre is a Gaelic rendition of Fin de la Tierra – could still be Ireland! 😉

    1. In Mexico at the tip of the Baja Peninsula is a Hotel named Finesterre in Cabo San Lucas. I used their phone a lot.

  11. I studied the picture before I read your interpretation and have to say what I saw in the photo was nothing close to what you came up with. Great job, John!

  12. This is great! Nothing more relatable than a “fun-filled” family vacation, right?! This bunch takes the cake — and I see there’s no McDonald’s nearby … too bad.

    1. They are near the end of the Earth. The only spot where there is no McDonalds.

  13. You always amaze me with the humour you get out of a bad situation. I thought he was looking for the last bus home after a lovely day out hiking in the Scottish highlands.
