Six Sentence Stories - Release

Thanks, Denise of Girlie on the Edge's Blog, for giving us this prompt for the blog hop this week. Check out Six Sentence Stories - Release to see what stories have crept out of the minds of the bloggers this week.


 

As he was squatted behind home plate, a position some coveted, he caught the missed balls and then skillfully propelled them back to the pitcher.

He was hardly inside the doorway when he was bombarded by little children clamoring, “Daddy, Daddy” as they grabbed hold of his legs before letting go so he could set down his briefcase while at the same time feeling thankful for sea legs.

On herpetology field trips he carefully picked up snakes and lizards to examine them before returning them to their habitat.

When he caught flack for something he did, or the way he had handled something at work, instead of bringing it home, he let it go.

With camera in hand, he perfected his craft over his lifetime as he repeatedly and steadily pressed the shutter and then let it disengage.

Whether in a boat, or almost completely encased in waders in a river, he became a master of catch and release.

    1. I agree. For some it takes many years. Even this man probably would be the first to admit that there was some practice and learning involved.
      Thanks, Denise.

    1. Thanks, Violet. I felt like saying, "to be continued," because there may be some that were left out and others that will appear in the future.
