Fandango’s Friday Flashback — September 6

Wouldn’t you like to expose your newer readers to some of you earlier posts that they might never have seen? Or remind your long term followers of posts that they might not remember?

Each Friday I will publish a post I wrote on this exact date in a previous year.

How about you? Why don’t you reach back into your own archives and highlight a post that you wrote on this very date in a previous year? You can repost your Friday Flashback post on your blog and pingback to this post. Or you can just write a comment below with a link to the post you selected.

If you’ve been blogging for less than a year, go ahead and choose a post that you previously published on this day (the 6th) of any month within the past year and link to that post in a comment.

This was originally posted on September 6, 2017 in response to a 100 Word Wednesday prompt from Bikurgurl.

One of the boys noticed bicycles lined up on a side street at one of the cycle-sharing stands that dotted the city. He ran toward the bikes, the others following.

“Geronimo,” he yelled and let loose a hard, swift kick to the end bike, which sent the other bikes careening into each other, like falling dominoes.

The four ran from the scene, sure no one had seen them. They hadn’t noticed the surveillance camera mounted on the light pole near the bicycles.

    My contribution, from yesterday, two years ago: Each week when I read your post, reminds me to look through my own stuff, see how my recovery has progressed. Incidentally, when I started with the stress ball, I could maybe squeeze it a quarter inch. Now I can almost, not quite, squeeze it fully.

    Fancy boasting that I can almost squeeze a bit of sponge! 🙂

      When I was still working, my company used to give away squeezable stress balls with its logo on them. I used to have half a dozen of those things but my dog got at them and, well, that was quite a mess.

    Good little story there with the bicycles!
    Fun idea to look back at older posts. I’ll see what I can find. 😉
