Succinctly yours: practice


For her Succinctly Yours meme, Grandma, of Grandma's Goulash, provides a photo and asks us:
How low can you go?
Use the photo as inspiration for a story of 140 characters OR 140 words, she says.

She also provides us with the 
Word of the Week: practice.

I usually like to try for 140 characters, including spaces and punctuation.

For years a school on weekdays, a church on Sundays, the building became the location for Dr. Fred's practice when he could no longer drive.

140 characters, including the word of the week.

The building looks like it served many purposes. Great choice.

Oh Kay, I like this! It appears that there is a revenue problem here. Fred isn't paying enough rent or owners aren't applying enough of it for building repairs.

A good coat of paint would go a long way. Seems the parking lot and the sidewalks are in need of an uplift as well.

Hi Kay, I just added your comment as a caption. Thank you for coming by.

Those rugged frontier doctors could take a lickin' and keep on tickin'. They could do so much with so little back in those frontier days! I like your unique take on this week's picture.

Helen said...

That would have been very convenient for Fred!

It looks like it has seen better days but then the same could be said about Dr. Fred!

Seasons said...

This wooden cabin picture is by itself a real find. Thanks! Your meme shows good imagination.

I couldn't decide if it was a church or a school (I went with church) and you tied it all up in a beautiful bow! Nicely done.

Akelamalu said...

Haha we both saw a doctor in there!

Sonia Lal said...

That's a very versatile building.

Steve E said...

You and Akelamalu's two doctors owned the first clinic in Oklahoma. Good pieces, both...

Hey, your friend who lives alone, practices in basement: Basement acoustics are good, always made me sound better than I thought I was!

Thank for coming by, I might try this again next week--grin!

PEACE!

I hope he takes better care of his patients than he does his building! BTW, I really like the sepia tone on the photo.

Rek said...

Very smart to put it to dual, good use...wish he would be less stingy on the upkeep. Good one.

Calico Crazy said...

Obviously he's an old school doctor who spends more on his patients than he makes, glad he found a place he could keep running his practice.

@ Calico Crazy — An "old school" doctor! That's wonderful. I love it.

Um...what kind of practice and did anyone actually go there to see him? LOL-this take was a tad spooky if you ask me.
