The Wall #9

In response to the weekly prompt from Jenny Matlock's Saturday Centus. Word limit for today - 50 words plus the prompt...The Wall continues...

Fighting on the street below interrupted my sleep but quickly dispersed when the angry innkeeper stepped outside.

Drifting off to another childhood memory...Grandfather's cabin beside a tiny lake up north. Swinging together on the porch swing each evening, he sang, “You are my sunshine, My only sunshine...”, until my head began to nod.

In case you're wondering what this is all about, you can read the continuing story @ The Wall page.

Excellent and HOORAY for continuing your story...I am enjoying each installment very much !

The memory of a backyard swing reminds me of swinging with my Nana after dinner on lovely California nights long ago.

Bravo. Love this. One of these days I'm going to attempt a continuing story...but it would be hard to be in the same arena as this and not pale in comparison.

Really well done.
