Jenny Matlock

Welcome to Saturday Centus, Mrs. Jenny Matlock's writing challenge where participants write a PG-rated text with a given prompt using not more than 25 words this week. The prompt is the above picture that Mrs. Jenny calls 'A Study in Black'.

This is week 78 and here
are Mrs. Matlock's instructions:

WORD COUNT - Not to exceed 25 words. Yes, that is correct. 2. 5. Twenty-five. XXV.
- Sorry Mrs. Matlock, but I can't do it this way!
Here is my text:

Louisa wanted a witch-costume. A black hat, wig and dress were purchased and donned. This surprised the cats greatly, who were themselves dressed in black.

Black is definitely the best color for Halloween. (I'm not fond of orange.)


PS. Trust you to work the cats in...and personify them!

Come winter Ms. Jenny will probably have us do a "study in white" where the white persian gets lost in the snowy drifts of Northern Sweden, trying to evade the hungry polar bears.

Black as a pit from pole to pole! Black cats, black clothes! Spooky!!!

Cheryl said...

Nice one, Anna! Fun prompt, don't you think? said...

This is sweet. I have a black cat, Mojo, and he approves of this one too.
Happy Halloween, Anna!

Jo said...

I love your photos that you have added against the prompt. Somehow they just added that extra touch to your story. Something about black witches hats and black cats for Halloween. Just wouldnt be the same.

Jo said...

I love the photos, so glad that you added them in! said...

That's the cutest cat and witch pair I've seen. Thanks for inviting me back, Anna.
Be well.

Hi Anna,

I liked the story and the pictures. Maybe we're not suppose to add them but your photos do add to the story so I'm glad they're there.


Jenny said...

I thought that was your lovely E.

She is getting so big!

And such an adorable little witch with her sleeky and lovely helper!

I'm glad you shared the photos, Miss Anna.

It's nice to see your daughters happy face!

Awww, who is cuter???! :) I love black kitties--I grew up with one. I think I was just a bit older than your daughter when I got mine. I still judge every cat I own against that kitty--he was the best.

I can't believe how grown up your daughter is!!
