Saturday Centus - 01/05/13 The Grandkids' Christmas List for Grandma

Jenny Matlock selected a photo prompt today. The rules remain the same: using a maximum of 100 words, use the prompt as your inspiration. The only caveat is that it had to be in first person.

I saved all my shopping ‘til Christmas Eve,

The store shelves were mostly bare.
Sally wanted a blue Furby,
I located one with purple hair.
David asked for Lego blocks –
To build a tower high,
I had to get him an aeroplane
That soars across the sky.
Little Jon’s gift was rare, indeed
Costing far more than I am worth.
“Grandma”, he said, with a wistful smile,
“Just give me Peace on Earth.”
