“End of the Trail” ~ #flashfiction

I just read the paper:

“Marty Underpier

died at the age of 66.”

The coroner’s report

states  time of death was 1pm

at Santa Monica pier”

“Hmm,” she thought, “wasn’t that when the women’s all american volleyball team was practicing on the beach?”

“Although he toppled over the pier,

coroners believe he drowned in his chowder.”

Thanks to G-Man for hosting the Friday Flash 55 every week. Please join us as we enjoy weekly fiction in 55 words at his expense.

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing and publishing in multiple genres (including education) in E. African for E. Africa. As a writer, it is a thrill to write for children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 13 years.

I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - my joy is in meeting you!

    1. Funny this 55 came as I was waking and it was too funny to pass up – my other 55 will go up next week. I wrote it minutes before the witching hour. I love writing!!!


  1. Clam Chowder or Corn Chowder?

    1. clam would have been word #56
      when you are on the coast you usually have fish, clam chowder. Tho some people have regular fare.


    2. 105Your style is so unique in cpiraomson to other folks I’ve read stuff from. I appreciate you for posting when you have the opportunity, Guess I will just book mark this web site.


  2. Perhaps the coroners had had too much of something (not chowder) themselves? – I was thinking more along the lines of him being toppled by an errant volleyball – hard, especially when you don’t see it coming. 🙂 Nice 55!


    1. Wonderful story, reckoned we could cmboine a few unrelated data, nevertheless really worth taking a look, whoa did one learn about Mid East has got more problerms as well


  3. Very funny and set in my very own locale! Yay!
    Confession: I must have the dirtiest mind ever. I was thinking maybe the “chowder” they found wasn’t actually soup and that… oh, never mind. I think I’ll just have to go to the pier and do some investigating of my own.
    Great 55. Have a fantastic weekend.

Faith & Entropy

Gud skaper noko nytt ved sitt Ord og sin Ande, vi kan ta imot det i tru og få oppleve at han gjer sitt verk med oss. Hans skaparkraft verkar konstuktivt i våre liv og skaper noko som er verdifullt for oss. Naturkreftene verkar nedebrytande, i fylgje entropilova, men Gud er Ånd og det som er født av hans Ande består. Jesu frelsesverk er fullbrakt og fullkome. Han er den siste Adam, som er ifrå himmelen og som for oss har vorte ei livgjevande ånd. Han gjev oss den Heilage Ande frå himmelen av berre nåde. Han gjev oss det evige livet.


Looking ahead, without looking back (too often)
