#FridayFictioneers – Right Here At Home



Maurice a retired as an aerospace engineer at NASA and settled down on a farm. Wasn’t much, just a dozen head of cattle and a few acres of peach trees. But it was home.

This morning while driving his tractor through the orchard to check if the peaches were ripe for picking, he saw his aging hippie neighbor Johnny.

“Hey Maurice, ya hear that weed is legal startin’ at midnight?”

“I heard…”

“Well, I got some good stuff. Meet me in the orchard at the stroke of 12 and we’ll celebrate. Bring your guitar.”

“Nah, I only play in daylight.”

This story is a little bit weird, but I hope somebody gets it. Friday Fictioneers is a weekly photo prompt flash fiction challenge on Rochelle Wisoff-Fields’ Addicted to Purple blog.  See additional stories from the prompt by other writers here!

  1. Now I haven’t heard that in ages. I Googled “Steve Miller Space Cowboy” and it was a different song… Hmmm. But I did find it – I should have guessed the correct song title since it is obvious!
