Here is this week’s entry into the weekly challenge brought to us by the lovely Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. She has requested that we extend birthday greetings to Jackie P. and Perry Block, so….
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BOTH OF YOU!
Here are the rules: Use the photo as inspiration, write a hundred(ish) words – and share! Here goes my offering for this week – and I welcome your comments again!
– The Adventurer –
Murdo McMaster didn’t quite possess the spirit and guts of Great Uncle Hamish.
Hamish had cheated death countless times as he captained his tiny fishing boat, the ‘Nil Desperandum’, in the unforgiving seas off the west coast of Scotland. Murdo’s chosen path as a tourist-season pleasure boat captain was ironic, to say the least.
The only thing that Murdo had ever cheated was the IRS. Now he would be forced to take his two-berth out into the Atlantic, in the hopes of reaching international waters before the tax authorities caught up with him.
