Writer’s Quote Wednesday, 7/20/2016.


Here we go, another week, another mini-story backed by a quote:

Well, it was over. Twenty years of effort gone in an instant. Reduced to a small box of office supplies; he didn’t even have the small pictures, the photos of the family most other did. He had worked for them for twenty years, and because of one mistake, it was all over.

He had to find another job just before retirement.

He dropped the box off in his battered car and drove straight home. He didn’t snag it from the car, there was no point. The afternoon was spent working on his resume, drink in hand. Nothing would happen if he just gave up, like that one lady said:

“At the end of the day, all you can hope for is to go on. The older I get, the more I realize that just keeping on keeping on is what life’s all about.” – Janis Ian.

He had a new job the next day – seemed his management skills were in higher demand than he realized.

And that’s it. As always, this is for Silver Threading at:


See you next week.
