What colour are your phone boxes? (6 word story challenge open until Thursday 31st January

For most of the England the traditional colour is red like post boxes. An exception is Hull which has cream phone boxes as they have own telephone company separate from rest of England.

Of course telephone boxes are becoming less and less use, now most people use mobiles. Old phone boxes have been put to alternative uses, such as mini libraries and tourist information. Preserving their history; just think of the calls that may have been made from of two them in the past; calls to midwives, calls between criminals … Can you imagine a 6 word story for prompt phone box; if so enter the challenge here:

100years since day WW1 ended.

This year 11th of November the date 100years ago in 1918 that World War One ended, falls on a Sunday; therefore today is Remembrance Sunday. Like last year there will be 2 minute silences around the country. I’m wearing British legion poppy earrings.

Remembrance Sunday: 12th November 2017  

This week on Wonderwall360 instragram, I having been posting images of the poppy cascade and other poppy displays in Keswick.

For this week’s #6wordstory challenge for prompt darkness, I have written a story about the world wars. The world wars were times of blood shred, tragedy and therefore darkness. Theoretically, the darkness of WW1, ended 100years ago today, bringing hope: However, those who had died during the war; were still dead and therefore families still mourned. WW1 was meant to be the war to end all wars but, of course it was not.

Darkness:

1918:

Dawn.

Mourning.

History.

Repeated:

1939.
