Susan’s Picture:

My Story:

Roland and Jules knew it would never work. 
They came from different 
socio-economic backgrounds: 
Roland's poncho - dazzling, 
Jules' - dull.

  2. Hee hee...at least Roland has that fancy poncho going for him because, quite honestly, he's really not "all that"!

  10. Oh, great one, Nessa! The modern Romeo and Juliet! Nope, probably never work, opposites may attract, but not for long! Have a great week!

  11. My husband would disagree. He says if you're both alike, one of you is unnecessary. He should know, being married to his exact opposite for 35 years!

  12. That made me grin! Oh to be cursed with a dull poncho. Life can be so cruel.

    Have a wonderful week!

  15. Good one, Nessa. Leave it to the writer to put these characters in.I hope Jules instigated this split. I would hate for her to lose her donkey.

  18. Even if they had thought it would work, their families would likely have interfered! Loved your modern take on this...
    Have a great week. Cheers.

  21. Everyone keeps picking on the poor cape man's clothes-LOL! Funny...

  22. Ah, but can they quit each other?

    Good job as usual, Nessa:)

  23. Too bad fashion differences got in the way.

  24. sometimes opposites attract ~ even though Jules and Roland are poles apart as long as there's cacti in sight their joined at the heart ~ shame they have to live out their days in the desert :) although perhaps the odd cacti in a plantpot would suffice ~ only time could tell :)
    Oh dear!!
    have a great week

  26. I can truly say this is the first time I have heard of a poncho being described as dazzling. Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  27. How it goes and goes and goes again. Well written.

    ReplyDelete
  28. oh that's too bad, they would have been so happy together...

    ReplyDelete
  29. If they really cared they would have tried harder.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Tsk. We make such fine lines of distinction.

    ReplyDelete
  31. The dazzling poncho was so off-putting that never the twain shall meet. Quite a lesson in superficiality and very cleverly rendered!

  32. This made me laugh. Love it.
