Memes and Moors!

ABC Wednesday is now in its 4th year. I really enjoy the diversity, creativity and imagination of the posts which we see each week. Another meme I really enjoy is Friday 55 Flash Fiction, organised by G-man (Mr Knowitall). The idea is you write a story in exactly 55 words. If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you've posted your 55.It really is a hoot - do check it out. Last week my contribution came about when I had to drive over the moors to visit a customer!

He had been a bus driver for long enough to know what to expect when he was doing the moors run.True, he had powers of discretion and he had a mobile – yes there was always somebody there to help. Nevertheless as he pulled up at the bus stop there was something about those eyes!

Here are the remaining photographs of my journey - Autumn in all its Glory don't you think?

The North York Moors are on our doorstep - right now I can look out of the window and make out the faint purple of the heather giving out it's last show of colour as the autumn gives the golden hue to all around.

  1. I am SO jealous of you. I miss the Moors so much. And those sheep. There's something so restful about them. Just chewing away and staring out at the world...........

  4. Terrific captures and choice for the M Day, Denise! I always wanted to be able to visit your part of the world and see the moors that I've read so much about. Terrific view from your window! Yep, I'm just a tad jealous! Hope the rest of your week goes well!

  11. Dear Mrs Nebitt,
    So pretty! The land, the mist, the autumn colours, and most of all, these wonderful furry four-footers! Do they like cats? Maybe I could play with them?

    The Moors. Is that where Heathcliff lives? Do you live near 'Whuthering Heights'?

    I really like your post. I am going to tell Mummy to go back and read it!

    By the way, I am supposed to return a message to you. Mummy says that she would be happy to make anything for you. She will write via e-mail.

    Now then, I've done that. I wish you a happy week!

    Purrs,

  18. When I went through that area, it was August 1998 and the heather was not showing any colour yet. But if I come next year in September, maybe I'll catch a glimpse. Beautiful shots, Denise!

  19. Cool! I did a round of Flash Fic Fridays 55, a story called Machina Pondering, I did. It's pretty good, and I'm planning on expanding on those 6 word stories that I had on my blog.

    Here's my submission
