Back in June 2016, I started a new "series" of posts... if you will... 
 And so on Wednesdays; I've been posting an old photograph to inspire your creativity.
Write a poem!   
 Plot out a short story.
 Have inspiration for a piece of art or composition.... let your artistic soul shine.
--and occasionally I write my own sordid story or poem. 
 (you can click on the photos in this post to make it larger to see).


Johnny, Trixie, and Larry
Mike and Karen
So says the notations on the back of this photograph.

I imagine they were kids who lived in the city... perhaps Pittsbugh or Philadelphia or Scranton...
and always hung out together.
Running through the streets.. playing dodge ball and baseball...
getting sweets at the local candy shop...
sneaking in the movies on the weekend.

I'd like to think that Johnny and Trixie eventually married.. and hosted summer barbecues at their home in the New Jersey suburbs for their old friends. Karen bought a diner and stayed in the city... married and had 8 children and raised them in her childhood home.
Mike became a truck driver, and married his high school sweetheart. These days they can still be found traveling with their 2 pet Pomeranians.
and Little Larry? He became a dentist.
He now has a condo in Belize, and loves to go fishing.
He probably has too many Hawaiin shirts in his closet.... just sayin'
