Saturday Centus - Once upon a statue


Jenny from "Off on my tangent" blog has declared "Birthday party flavor" as our prompt for this week.  103 words in any style writing and extra photos are fine.

Once upon a statue story....

Everyone was ecstatic - in anticipation
for an exciting

except for this lad and his pup

thanks to his rivals
this sad pouty lad
slipped into the harbor of lost dreams!

How could it be?

In this park where happiness spreads like a native weed
and such an important announcement was declared!
Flowers bloomed with excitement -
Birds chattered overhead, squirrels jabbered

yet one statue wasn't invited
to the
birthday party flavor

The others arrived

unfettered and alive with a bird in hand

or a favorite book -

and clothing optional....

So the lad decided to surprise them all

by bringing his cousin!

Who is a

baker that delivers! Let them eat cake!
