Hi All,

The prompt will appear at high noon on Thursday and close high noon Wednesday. (This will be Australian time)

So here’s the rules if you wish to partcipate –

1 Completed piece must be in mutiples of 50 words – maximum of 250 words. Anything is acceptable – poetry, story, anecdote.

2 There will be a photo and a random phrase that I will take from the current book I am reading – you can use either or both

3 Please pingback and tag 50 word Thursday, so I can do a summary on the Thursday morning.  You can either put your piece in the comments on this post or do a post of your own.

Love to have you participate and here is this week’s photo and phrase prompt.


“You had to take your shoes off when you went in and you weren’t allowed to jump on the furniture or tease the cat.”

From Robert Rankin’s Snuff Fiction

Here’s my attempt for this week:

The sign was explicit and in silence he considered it … who said you couldn’t tease the cat?  Wasn’t that the purpose of cats?

Deciding to ignore it he went in search of the beast and set about his task but the cat just surveyed him with its superior expression refusing to be rankled and after half hour he left in a huff.

The old woman sighed, “They think I’m protecting the cat, they don’t think the warnings for them.  Don’t tease the cat … it will only bring bitterness.  Tabby will remain unflustered but you won’t be the same.”.

Thank you to all the participants last week, please have a read as there are some great pieces here.

Tales from the mind of Kristian – 50 Word Thursday – The Tradition

Tammy from God Inspired Art and Quotes

His green weary eyes, gazed beyond the familiar image as it grew closer towards his bar. He grasped. “Harry, is that you?” Anxiously placing the straw-hat on his head as the little lad skipped alongside the dirt trail. “Harry!”
“Papa!” As both shared a bear hug immensely. The old man whispered to himself, “Truly, God answers prayers.”

  4. You didn’t autocorrect my mistake 😦 its barn, not bar! Lol hmm, great submission. Hmm let’s see what I can make up for this one…

    “How did she get up there?”
    “What and who are you talking about?” She grumbled, making her way over to the scene.
    “Well, take a look for yourself…”
    Eyes widened as she squealed, “Tabitha! How did you…when did you…GET DOWN HERE!”
    “And if she doesn’t make it on her way down…” The other female interjected.
    “She’ll have eight more left.”

    Haha, passed the word limit as per. Lol 😀 I enjoyed this one a lot.
