a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Saturday Centus 143, Six Word Saturday, Tall Tales,

Jenny Matlock with her challenge, any style of writing but must be 100 words exactly!  I did it!!!  Also providing another link to the man who grows plants and animals in North Wales.  Hope you enjoy the tall tale, John.

Time for the Trelawnyd Annual Garden show. John standing with Chris couldn't contain his excitement.  He’d won the Best Flavored Tomato title the past five years.

All the villagers’ tomatoes rested on the correct bench for entry. The judges sliced a tomato from each entry because they were judged not only for beauty but also flavor.

John waiting anxiously with Chris waiting to hear the judges’ opinion. Chris said, “John, you have won every year. Don’t worry so.”

Purple ribbon…John!

When asked his secret of growing delectable tomatoes, he just smiled.

No one would ever know his tomatoes were carnivorous.
For Six Word Saturday at Show Your Face....Doing six words for a picture, not my life.

Refuse round rusting remnant resting ruefully.

Oh my! I guess if he doesn't win one year, the tomatoes will turn on the judges.

Nice six word description of the old wheel, gail. The tomato story was corny. Guess it is harder to write one that is tomatory.

Google: What is a carnivore?
www.qrg.northwestern.edu/projects/.../whats-a-carnivore.html
"Carnivores generally eat herbivores, but can eat omnivores, and occasionally other carnivores. Animals that eat other animals, like carnivores and omnivores ..."

That's one way to handle a judge...if they don't vote for you, eat 'em!

Cute story. :)
