Photo Mysteries: A Writers' Game #27

We haven't done this for a few weeks, so let's review how the game works.
Carmi, over on Written Inc, picks a photo theme for each week, and then he asks his readers to share their photos that fit the theme.  On my blog, we add to that by giving a title and a single line of a story to fit the photo.  I start it, and you add your titles and single lines in the comments section -- the more, the merrier!
Here's a link so you can see a previous week to get a feel for it.  And remember: you don't have to be a writer to play; it's only a sentence!

Carmi's theme this week is "grey" (or "gray, " if you prefer the American spelling over the British).

Here's my grey photo:

My story title: Lullaby
My single line:  Mama always told me to be careful what I read before bed, but sometimes I didn't pay her much attention.

Your turn!  Add your titles and single lines in the comments section.  :D


  1. Ancestor's Walk 101

    G. (Good) Night, arrived in America on multiple ships from Auckland, New Zealand in 1891- this sailor, now home from the sea.

  2. This is the story of Otto the Otter...

    (My dad used to tell us stories about Otto, as his dad told to him.)

  3. Night night, sleep tight...

    Lot's Wife put the book down and bent over to kiss her sleeping son...

  4. Sorry, my mind got stuck on

    "goodnight John-Boy"

    and I couldn't come up with anything original.

    1. Ah, we used to quote that on family boating trips. Of course, the only episode of "The Waltons" I've ever seen is the Thanksgiving special. And I didn't pay much attention, as I was in 3rd or 4th grade, and I didn't think it was interesting at all. (We had to watch it in school. I think I would've preferred a worksheet.)

  5. She (Lot's wife) knew she would never see that kid again even though tourists by the thousands would stare at her in stone form.

  6. Kill a bug;

    Don't let the bed bugs bite.

  7. Title: I'm not am I?

    Line: Frank wasn't dead, he just slept in his grave, digging himself out each evening and causing problems for the gardeners.

  8. Story title: Cast in Stone
    Line: Liquid paper won't work on this thing.
