Grandma's Goulash: children, blackboard

Grandma's Goulash.

Every week, Grandma provides a picture, and we are invited to write either a short story about it, using 140 words or a very, very short story using only 140 characters, including spaces and punctuation. This week, I didn't use the bonus word, beneficial, chosen by Grandma's daughter, who hadn't yet seen the picture.

Julia took his hand, "Look, I'll draw you a cartoon, then you draw one for me, and we'll show them both to Daddy." Jonathan smiled happily.


139 characters, including spaces and punctuation

Hi Kay, this is very sweet and real. I like the family connection.

Recently I attended a business workshop and there was this professional guy doing cartoons which captured the key messages of the discussions, it was quite amazing! But nothing is as light as children doing it...
God bless you!

That's a very sweet microfiction and quite plausible.

Sorry about your difficulty connecting. The Linky tool has been acting up lately. I had a problem around noontime as well. Hopefully everything is resolved for you now.

Finding joy is simple things is something we all need to remember. And, children shall lead them!

This is nice and pleasant, Kay. A very sensible young lady you have and rightly she should be teaching her little brother.
Now the father should like it or say he does.

Sorry that the gun bothered you. It does me too, but I needed a three or four letter object that fit the thinking of this desparate young lad's way of getting out of an undesirable spot.
