A Halloween Tale


Her Sister
Had a Dream

Emma and her sister Drudy lived together.
Drudy would cook and Emma would clean.

One day Drudy decided to go to Ohio on vacation.
The day after she got there, she got sick and died.
Gloomy Emma checked her mailbox. It had one letter. Emma opened it. It said:

‘Dear Emma, how’s everything going?
The strangest thing happened. I woke up and I was in a coffin.
And now everyone is running away from me. It’s like I died.
Well, I’m sure it’s nothing. Love, Drudy.’

    Good morning!Quite a nice short tale! Como diz o velho ditado: ” A fruta não cai longe do pé “.Obrigado por alegrar minha manhã com essa notícia de teu filho escritor!Passo por perrengues de saúde  ( mais uma vez), curtindo dores fortes na perna esquerda, que vão me levar à cirurgia ( mais uma) que – espero- resolva. Estou muito limitado e não consigo caminhar sem claudicar.Não quero te encher com esse desabafo, mas como amigo do peito ( haja coração!) queria te avisar. Um baita abraço PxPs: A big hug to Coll Dennis!Enviado do meu smartphone Samsung Galaxy.
