~~~ From the Editor ~~~

Some people tell me that they would like to enter the weekly contest
but don’t write very well. It doesn’t matter. I end up *cleaning up*
most entries anyway – fixing grammar and spelling mistakes that I
catch.

So, if you have always wanted to send in a story but didnt think you
could write it well enough, send it in anyway.

Have a fun week. — Michael

FOUR HOUR VACATION
by P Miller

Home

The romantic vacation about which I’m writing you about doesn’t even
require a trip away from home. But it IS a vacation. It’s a 4 hour
vacation anyone, anywhere, can do.

I wanted to surprise my sweetheart with a romantic change of pace.
One warm, sunny Sunday morning, I called her and asked if she would
like to go for a nice drive. Then, ahead of time, I took an old
fashioned woven wicker picnic basket, packed it with our favorite
foods and a bottle of wine, along with a romantic card, book of love
poems, and a handful of fresh-cut fragrant ivory roses (her favorite).
I hid the basket away in the trunk with a blanket.

I picked her up, and we drove into the rural countryside, following an
old rustic road. It was really beautiful scenery and a wonderful
change of pace from the hectic work week. I brought along CD’s I had
chosen of her favorite music. Then, as we passed a farmer’s wheat
field, I simply pulled the car off the road without explaining why,
and parked well off-road. To her complete surprise, I opened the
trunk and grabbed the basket and blanket, inviting her to walk with me
40 feet off the road into the waist-high field. And there, in the
waving tall wheat, we spread the blanket and had an intimate, romantic
meal, talking about everything and nothing. And for a little while,
the rest of the world was light-years away.

I loved it because the whole day centered on her. It was as
refreshing as any fancy travel agency vacation — and more romantic —
because ever since we first met I had been interested to learn her
favorite things, foods, flowers, wine, and music. And no airline to
lose our bags.
