The Wall #14

~She said the recipe had been handed down from her grandmother who baked bread and pizza in an outdoor oven.
As we sat there sharing stories, a boy of about 12 years came running down the hall, slowing to a walk as he neared my open door. He stopped outside and smiled impishly.

Mother, may I ride my bike to Tommy's house?” After questions about homework and chores were answered to her satisfaction, she sent him off with a warning to be home before dark.

We laughed as he dashed down the hall and out the door with wings on his heels.~

Soon, your wall will be as long as the Great Wall in China! I love this little snippet, and, like Judie, I'm surprised he didn't grab a slice. Is he up to something?
