Tuesday Anything Possible – Kreative Kue #135 by Keith Channing

In Keith’s words. “Using this photo (below) as inspiration, write a short story, flash fiction, scene, poem; anything, really; even just a caption for the photograph. Either put it (or a link to it) in a comment or email it to me at keith@channing.info before 6 pm 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.”

Kreative Kue #135

“Thanks for the lift my man.”

“No problem Senior Dog.”

“You can call me Trevor.”

“No problem Senior Trevor.”

“What is this place anyway?”

“It is called Fin de la Tierra.”

“What doe that mean in dog?”

“End of the Earth.”

“Ah. it fits.”

“Is there anything else you need?”

“No. I think this is all I need. Plenty of water, lots of grass and a nice lamppost. I should be very comfortable.”

“But Senior Dog?”

“Yes, what is it?”

“The water she’s salty. The grass is synthetic, and that pole is no tree.”

“Hmmm. I didn’t notice. Now that you mention it I guess I will need a few things.”

“Si Senior Trevor. Might I suggest you get back aboard and continue with us.”

“Where are you going?”

“We are going to sail to Los Cabos, Mexico.”

“You know I’ve never been there. Maybe a good idea.”

“You can work your passage.”

“What can I do?”

“Can you cook?”

“No.They don’t make body hairnets.”


“Look at these paws. No opposable thumb.”

“Can you look out for things?”

“What kind of things?”

“Watch for rocks and other boats.”

“Ah ha. I think you have it.”


“My specialty.”

“Which is?”


“I wonder why it took me so long to get there. Jump on.”
