FOWC with Fandango: Fortitude

When Maxwell first saw Mr. Richard Cringeworthy, it took all of his inner fortitude not to burst into raucous laughter. The man was inordinately tall in the leg, giving him an insect-like appearance. Adding to the effect was his fondness for long, black boots that went all the way over his calf. His short-waisted coatContinue reading “FOWC with Fandango: Fortitude”

As the Great Bard once wrote, “The devil hath power to assume a pleasing shape.” So it was with Maxwell and the Hartley’s, who fell madly in love with the black and white cat who appeared out of nowhere on their front doorstep on the coldest day in Winter. “We can’t leave the poor fellaContinue reading “Ragtag Daily Prompt: Slick”

(Forgive the nautical analogy, but I do live on the Chesapeake Bay!)

FOWC with Fandango: Egregious

“Come on in, Maxwell,” said Satan in a deep, gravelly yet vaguely fatherly voice.  Max obeyed immediately, padding into the bedroom without a second thought.  When dealing with the Evil One, Maxwell had learned that Satan liked enthusiasm.  If anyone complained about any little thing, Satan would take it as a personal affront. Satan satContinue reading “FOWC with Fandango: Egregious”
