Drive In Movies

The evening was warm as the breeze blew from the south. The sky, covered in a light orange sunset, gave a tranquil mood. I drove close to the speaker rolling the window down. Reaching out, I placed it on the window 's edge. The smell of popcorn, strong in the air, the movie began to play.

Flash Fiction Friday 55 is a story written in exactly 55 words.  It's fun exciting and definitely a challenge making sure to use no more than fifty five words and no less of course and you must read the ones of your fellow writers. Let the G-Man know if you write one   Gman's Place Why Gman's? Place Cause He's da Man!..

James 2 : 26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also

So many 55s this week are bringing back many wonderful childhood memories. Your 55 does that for me perfectly.

Ah, I remember Drive In movies. Was probably the only teenage girl who ever actually watched the movie. ;) [And yet the "boy" married me anyway].

Have a great week!
