It is time for another edition of Sunday Photo Fiction. This challenge requires the writer to create a story that uses somewhere around 200 words, and that the story goes with the photo prompt. Here we go!
Agnes just celebrated her 95th birthday. At the rest home, they had a party with the silly hats, leis, and a cake blazing with two candles, one for each number. There were so many presents.
When she opened the one from the nurses, she looked at the wooden board, and all the little round balls. “How lovely,” she said. “What is it?”
Meredith, the head nurse, clapped her hands joyfully, and said, “We know how you like to play games Agnes. This is a game of solitaire, which, as the name implies, you can play by yourself! We hope that you will enjoy this game!”
Back in her room after the party, she unwrapped the game. The balls went rolling off the board onto the floor. She went chasing after them. Pretty good for an old gal like Agnes. She discovered instructions affixed to the bottom of the board.
The rules indicated this was really a puzzle and not a game. Grabbing a bag that she had tucked away previously, she tossed everything in, and placed the bag in the garbage.
Grabbing her deck of cards, she laid them out for another tireless game of Canfield, her favorite solitaire game.

Thank you goes out to Alastair Forbes for hosting this challenge. Even though Al tell us that he wrote this post, to be published at a future date, which is today, he certainly did a fine job with this photo!
Thanks go out to you dear readers for taking the time to stop by for a quick read. I usually post earlier in the day, but time got away from me today. I hope that your day was amazing, and stay tuned for tomorrow’s story which will be inspired by the Mondays Finish the Story challenge. Be well… ^..^
