“That’s the spirit, my friend! Tonight’s about dreamin’, folks - Charlie's a slickster alright. He's really got the patter down! I like him. : ) Well done, Justin!
Charlie pays attention! 🎉
I just love this . . . and kept up the carnival dream theme over at the Fifties. :-)
What a cute story!! Was this inspired by our day at the fair.I am guessing it was.Always love reading your stories.Keep them coming.
I missed this when you sent it. I’m glad I found it. It’s another great one!
I could imagine every moment of this one. Great job!
Nice slice of life. I can’t help but think Charlie wiped a little tear out of his eye, maybe remembering his own daughter. But he was right about buying her a basketball. 🤓
Great work! Gave me Ray Bradbury vibes.
“Come on, big fella, put some mustard on this next one or somethin’, " “Brother…you need to go buy her a basketball.” The patter of the carney man, Justin! You got it just right. And your description of the little girls' stance and her awkward way of tossing the ball -- I could just see it. Nicely unpredictable, too. Your writing get gets better and better.
