Once again, fellow bloggists, I am in summer reruns.
For those of you who are new to Friday Fictioneers, I hope you will enjoy this story as it fits the prompt quite nicely. I always try to select some story that will blend into the subject well, not just slap something on there regardless… although that WOULD be a plus, wouldn’t it? Then again, I’d be in trouble with the Queen (can you get any lower than Court Jester?).
So, from May 14th of last year, I bring you A Lesson In Ancient Civilizations.
Concerning the photo — Roger Bultot took it. Thanks, Roger, wherever you are!
Concerning the blog — Rochelle Wisoff-Fields is the leader of the expedition. Check her out on Friday Fictioneers!
Concerning the story — As Gene Roddenberry said, “For us? No limits.”
“Must be over 1000 years old. Look at the style of the buildings.”
“Yeah, the computer would say the same thing.”
“You don’t suppose some kind of neutron explosion took place, do you?”
“I ain’t seen no skeletons … yet.”
A huge roar, overtook the woods.
“What’s that sound …?”
A voice called out from behind the roar. “Come on, Bud. I got to mow this before the snakes start nesting around here.”
“OK, Dad.” Bud looked at Charlie. “Wanna go play Frisbee instead?”
Bud’s friend’s eyes lit up. “Yeah! We’ll pretend it’s a flying saucer on its way to Mars!”
