Better late than never, as they say. I’m squeaking in today for Friday Fictioneers. I love the blue sky in this picture. I just had to offer something. Today’s Friday Fictioneers and photo is graciously brought to you by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. Congratulations to Rochelle and her husband on their 41st wedding anniversary. Amazing!

He selected an item and bought it in a flash. With brilliant eyes he handed her a plush pillow. “My gift for you.”
Stunned, the woman smiled and accepted the gift.
“Now you can get some rest,” he said gently.
