Blondie’s song runs round in my head as I climb the ladder. It seems apropos somehow. ‘One way or another I’m gonna getcha, getcha, getcha’ she says. Easier said than done. Fourteen near misses: a push at the railway station, poisoned porridge, slippery soles, an exploding car and lightning strike. The list goes on. Actually the last was more an act of God than a deliberate aim. But tonight’s the night. Never send a girl out to do a woman’s job is my motto. We’ve got a date on top of the ladder at eight.

My visiting granddaughters are taking up most of my time, so I’m a bit behind in my Friday Fictioneers stories. But if you’ve got the time go and visit Friday Fictioneers on

    • Thanks for the thought, Bruce. It took at least a decade and a half to help Helena get off that staircase. But it’s definitely a thought. I’ll put this one in my ideas drawer to mature. Maybe only a decade this time. 🙂

  1. As soon as I saw your title, Mary, I thought of the Blondie song. You story works well with the picture for the week.

    Hope you’re still having fun. I have just a little over a month before my two weeks of fun starts! 🙂

    • It’s two weeks for me of term holiday. I find that although I can physically multi-task, my mental faculties are totally stuffed. (How was your weekend?)

    • Yes, she’s far more determined and aggressive than I am. PS, thanks for the kind thoughts but it’s not the weekend but two weeks of enjoyable though exhausting term holiday. Mixed emotions about the end of this week. 🙂
