ELECTIVE CHOICE ~ By Absolutely*Kate ... #FridayFlashFiction come to life, in but 100 words



ELECTIVE CHOICE
As reported by  ~ Absolutely*Kate
                

The fat thrills of Beverly Hills wore thin on the pragmatic Clampetts. Possum vittles passed 'round the cee-ment pond in a pretend world could only circle so far. New York was where they longed to be. So Jed loaded up the family and moved to Albany. Political machines, with no movie stars.
The wrong turn had occurred off Route 80 while Jethro was at the wheel, fiddlin' new radio station buttons. Jed, being the commonsensical head of the family, made the best of the new location. Granny still says his congressional incumbency is a hoot.

Oil's well that ends swell.

                

      

FIRST APPEARING AT THE INAUGURAL LAUNCH OF  ~ 

 THE NICK TRIPLOW STATUS STORIES

 Smashing stories told in 100 words or less . . . with aplomb.

The aplomb is the bomb.

And mine? Doggone it -- 100 wordings, on the dot!

      

~ Absolutely*Kate,
happy as rockin' chairs on a summer porch
that you good folks come round,

Comes times it takes a man of the people to reach the people. I'd vote Clampett for Congress. And thanks Mr V.

Helen said...

Oh the Clampett's - wonderful! I'd vote for them too!

New York, then of all places, Albany? Interesting imagination you've got there Kate.
Fun read in 100.

Well good then, Jed has HELEN as an international lobbyist of great savvy. This bodines well for the campaign.

HAR, no how, no way -- Jed's a clear thinker not a fearmonger. Dem Clampetts are Democrats. (But your pun was an ace pulled outta your sleeve, natch - and Ellie Mae's been askin' for ya)

Ms PEG! Have missed your on-target insight aim and ever a sense of wonder. Real glad to catch your smile at my imagination. It just had to veer N off '80 a coupla hours.

Thanks fellow authors I sure do admire. Wanta go over to Governor Drysdale's for a coalition meeting later? ~ Absolutely*Kate
