Winter Walk

Inspired by “Microfiction Monday
where a picture paints 140 characters, or even fewer.”

“As a kid in Holland, we walked for miles to Grandma’s for Christmas! In the snow! With tree, gifts, and a pig; we wore shorts!” he barked.

  4. Ah yes, back in the OOLLLDDD Country, right?

  5. The things that we remember from our childhood. I was lucky though when I was a Wee Bairn my Gram lived with us so I didn’t have to walk through the snow in my shorts. Unfortunately my Gram didn’t live with us very long. She was moved to a Nursing Home 80 miles away, and we didn’t have all that many Christmas’s together.

    Thank you for stopping by my place Faith, a Wonderful Christmas is wished for you and your’s.

  6. That’s good, Faith! I’m still smiling. 🙂
    I would ask you, was it also up hill and down hill?
    ..
    Yeah, mine is about the shorts business also.
    BTW, boys didn’t wear shorts back in my day!
