Microcosms 89

Felicitations, fellow flashionistas, and welcome to Microcosms 89. Regular followers may remember that in MC Contest 85, I told you that I was called upon to make a Father of the Bride speech in September.

Microcosms 83

I’ve got that Friday Feeling… Welcome to Microcosms 83, flashionistas!   Apologies for the tardiness of this post; while scrabbling around for a theme, I began to feel unwell and had to go to bed.

It has been apocryphally attributed to the novelist and short story  writer Ernest Hemingway. As today, 21-JUL, is the anniversary of Hemingway’s birth in 1899, this week’s contest is based…
