Friday Flash 55: Reincarnation?



Of course, I believe in reincarnation. 

I remember it all like it was yesterday.  There I was, minding my own business like any proper pumpkin and doing my bit for the autumn color show, when along came that bratty Billy Bishop with a big honkin’ knife…

Don’t his parents know kids shouldn’t play with knives?

This is my offering for Friday Flash 55, hosted by that charming rogue G-Man here

Love the humor and LOVE the car!!!!!!

TALON said...

Awww! Poor pumpkin! This was so funny! That car is certainly unique!

Janna said...

It took me awhile to realize the car actually has three wheels!
At least I think it does...
Cool! :)

lonligrl said...

Very cute! Brings back memories of my days as Cinderella. At least I didn't wear a scary costume like that Monkey Man...

Thom said...

OMG This is so clever. Three wheels. WOOT!! Excellent 55. Have a great weekend. :)

G-Man said...

Now that The Great Pumpkin..
A lovely bit of whimsy from your pen tonight Patti....I Love It!
Most Excellent 55 My Dear.
Next week should be very interesting.
Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End!

I love it! Looks like Billy had a blow torch and some extra steel.
What is/was that? 1940 coupe modified? At first I thought Studebaker but the nose looks slightly upturned for that and I don't recognize those back fins. Where in the world did you find this picture? It's fantastic. Thanks for this lovely pumpkiny 55!

Nice one, and I bet it's an eco-friendly fuel system ;-)

Belinda said...

Fantastic 55! What pumpkin wouldn't wanna come back as that!

joanny said...

Amazing car photo. where on earth???

At first I thought it might be some crazy Citroen model - but then I saw three wheels and I thought "Aha!! Buckminster Fuller built a three wheeled car. Maybe ..." but then no, his car looked like a hanging water balloon.

Excellent 55, by the way.

lime said...

was billy part fairy godmother that he turned the pumpkin into such a nifty coach?

Eric Alder said...

Nothing better than photos to help your 55 come to life. Nice job!

Jannie Funster said...

You're so much fun, Patti!

Love you and your original blog posts!

Alice Audrey said...

So is that the cutting edge? :)

RNSANE said...

Terrific. Can that car REALLY be a pumpkin? You are so talented. I know you didn't do the pumpkin ( or did you? ) but your writing is always wonderful.

quilly said...

Love that car! What pumpkin wouldn't want that in his/her future! so much better than being a pie, don't you think?

Monkey Man said...

Great car. Second automotive themed 55 I've read today. Did I miss something?

Mama Zen said...

Wow! Billy is gooood!

Everyday Goddess said...

That's some kind of upgrade. Makes me wonder what I'll come back as?!

PattiKen said...

Thanks for your visits, my friends. I'm pleased that you liked my little story of rein-CAR-nation.

I e-mailed those who asked specifically, but if the rest of you are wondering, the car is a 1937 Airomobile. There's lots of cool pictures of it on the web. I thought it was just so cute.

hope said...

What a cool theme this one is!

My cousin had a car like that in the 1970s. Begged his Dad to get him a car when he was a teen. So his Dad got him a 1957 Chevy and painted it international orange! Everyone in town knew where he was going. ;)

Gives a new spin to a lemon...

Great 55 Patti

Love from the moon

Me said...

Ha! Obviously, my pumpkin carving skills are nowhere near old Billy's! :)

Great 55!

Kavita said...

haha..this was superb, Patti... part autobiography of a pretty pumpkin!!! AWESOME! :))
Bratty boy indeed... or should I say poor parenting?! :))

s&s said...

VOILA! Pumpkin turned into a chariot--and was there blood on the sidewalk?

Really GOOD '55', Patti...

JamieDedes said...

A twist on Cinderella! :-)

Seriously cute, Patti. Thanks for the smile.
