On the Reservation

Back in my younger days, I had the freedom to roam this country. Then I got involved in the civil rights movement in 1964. It wasn’t a popular stand, particularly in the south. Local officials drummed up false charges about an Apache running wild. The next thing I knew the Department of Indian affairs put me behind a fence.
I reached out to the National Association of Abused Chevy Pick-ups for help. They racked their pipes, tooted their horns, and blew a lot of hot air, but nothing changed.
This summer, I’ll open a casino and smoke-shop. Who’s laughing now?

  1. Dear Russell,Don't know how you do it. But you do it well. I love the way your brain is wired and what happens when the wires cross (as you write:).Aloha,Doug


  2. Delightful play on words with a truck's perspective. Great work!I'm glad you liked my little Reba :)http://www.wakefieldmahon.com/1/post/2012/03/last-stand-fridayfictioneers.html


  3. It's actually Chevy Pick-ups, Shirley. A take-off on NAACP. Glad you enjoyed it. I'll be over to read yours soon.


  4. Haha…Every week, I look forward to see what you have up your sleeve. You never fail to surprise with your wonderful, original humor. Thanks again for another good chuckle. Here's mine:www.triplemoonstar.blogspot.come


  5. Another funny story from you this week, Russel 🙂 Good one! There are comments on my blog for you from yesterday because some people couldn't leave a comment on yours.


  6. We seem to be having trouble commenting on this post Russell. Some of the Fictioneers have left comments for you on your comment at my blog. I was able to comment on your previous story about the chain letters, but the first time I tried to comment on this post it wouldn't let me. So I'm back to try again. Maybe third time's the charm…


  7. I tried my darnest to reply to this on Friday, but obviously I failed miserably. This cracked me up when I read it. You did a great job describing the trucks feelings and gave the reader a great laugh in the process. Nice work. 🙂


I'd love to hear from you

This is the blog of a woman who is seriously on the edge and I mean right ON the edge…no, not there… just a little bit further… further than that…no, further still…just a tiny bit more… just move slightly to the right a little…no, that’s too much…just move a tad to the left…that’s right, just there…now you’ve moved too far to the left… Damn, what part of the ‘on the edge’ do you not understand? Oh, and her matricidal boy genius, come devil spawn.

Sharing sarcasm, snark, and satire with the world...

Or the three people I guilted into reading this blog, whatever.
