Two Challenges

Trying to cover two different challenges was a little difficult but lots of fun.  Fifty-words in Six Sentences using the prompt "three".   I did it!!!

Two Shoes in Texas has part of the challenge and I combined it with the Friday Flash 55 challenge.
In the beginning
A calf frolicked
And made us laugh.
Training her to milk
We didn't turn back.
Life continued
No milk came
while wondering
what was to blame.
We thought
and thought some more.
We needed something
for milk to pour.
In comes the bull
He moos lovingly
Nine months later
There were three.

Mine also ends in three, but admittedly is a bit different. Good job, Gail!

So very clever, the way you put that all together and made it work just right! You left me smiling, and remembering that big Papa Bull we met at your farm, a mighty handsome fella! Great job, thank you so much for joining in at 6SS this week. Looks like mine is going to be late, like tomorrow or the next day, early bedtime tonite, surgery in the am.

There's always a point in a "family" story when Daddy steps in and he made a grand appearance at the end, however, most important part of your jingle, Eh. Cool Stuff

At least you didn't expect milk from the bull. I'm sure somewhere some idiot has, right?

Sandra said...

I think this might just be my favorite.. oh yes.. cows and then there were three.. LOVE IT

You have to check out the parts first before you start milking. Bulls don't like that.
