Friday Flash 55 & Mag 173 — Birthday Highs



A friend is having his birthday
and messages for him abound
at Facebook: kind thoughts,
silly taunts, exotic shots,
and brilliant videos made
in his honor.

When will he see all these
accolades? Someone left a note
saying that he might be out
flying a celebratory kite.
He has not yet told us
her name.

Written for Friday Flash 55 - My post in exactly 55 words - for the G-Man.
    -ALSO-
Written for The Mag: Mag 173 that inspired with the above image prompt
(The Promenade, 1918, by Marc Chagall).

Brings a whole new sense to "Go fly a kite." Well, no matter; a kind thought on your part. And the vagaries of Facebook. Maybe we should all go back to writing letters and sending cards.

Blessings and Bear hugs!

He will see them as he is nursing a hangover the next morning (perhaps wishing he had stayed home)...

****Hello everyone~ I enjoyed your comments so much. Rather than trying to catch up with replies I am going to try to visit each of you with the time left during this weekend. Many thanks.
