The Green Tux

Edith stood back and looked at her efforts; surely this year hers would be the best dressed moose in town. Tomorrow she and Fred would celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary, A day she happily remembers.

It started with the wedding at St Patrick’s, the ceremony performed by Father O’Leary. Followed by a parade from the church to the Moose Lodge 2017, only a couple blocks east. The Moose Lodge members either marched in their procession, or stood on the curbs cheering them on.

This year she was pressing the Kelly green tuxedo that Fred wore on that day 60 years in the past. It was a bit of a struggle, but he’d lost enough weight to fit into it once more. They would be celebrating the day just how they started life together, at the Moose Lodge.

It’s Finish off Fridays (FoF) time again – the flash fiction writing prompt that alternates with Sanaa’s Friday Music Prompt.

I provide the picture and the opening sentence, you write an additional 100 to 150 words to complete the story.

    Perfect — love the St. Patrick Day theme and the image of the members of the moose lodge cheering on the newly wedded pair. The green tuxedo for the wedding anniversary is a nice touch.
    Thanks so for participating with another interesting piece of flash fiction.
