Welcome to Friday Fictioneers where each week close to 100 people participate in a flash fiction challenge based on a photo prompt.

My urge to downsize is just as strong now as my urge to nest was 25 years ago. The reason I haven’t given everything away is because my job is so insecure I am saving things to sell.
On a recent antique browsing weekend my husband saw an interesting piece of rusted art that looked like a cross between a lawn-tractor and a chopper.
“It’s only $100.00” he said ecstatically.
“That is a good price” I replied barely interested.
“It will look gorgeous in the flower garden”.
“Is it really necessary?”
I’m going to spend my retirement cluttered and broke.
