Friday Flash 55 & Writer's Island - The Deadliest Catch

The prompt from Writer's Island this week is fisherman, since I've already written about fishermen in my 55, I'm going to enter the same story for WI.


KB and Whitesnake snuggle up infront of the telly to watch the Deadliest Catch for the first time. Pictures of fishermen pop up on screen...Keith Wizard, Phil Cornelia Marie, Sig Nothwestern.

KB - These men have unusual names.

WS - Chuckles.

As the last name appears...Johnathon Time Bandit, she realises she's experienced another blonde moment.



Not quite a true story but close enough. For those of you who don't know the TV Show, there's a little clip above for you to watch. The names I'm referring to in my story are the captains first names, followed by the names of their boats. Hehe.

Friday Flash 55 - Each Friday, I compose a short story of 55 words - no more, no less. If you would like to join in the fun and games... post your story and report to the boss G-Man. If you're not interested in contributing a story, feel free to read the other entries. I'm sure any comments you have would be appreciated.

Whitesnake's 55 is HERE.


Have a great weekend everyone.

Love KB

Coming Up...Ask KB - In reply to a question from dear, Missy.

That's one of my daughter's favorite shows, as well... and she'd get a giggle out of this 55, too. I can't wait to tell her!

lime said...

ah well, my husband thought vegans were from another planet so your lapse seems pretty minor. ;)

TALON said...

lol! An easy enough mistake to make! I'm a land-lover so the one time I watched that show, I swear I got sea-sick! lol!

KB said...

Titanium - I hope she gets a kick out of it.

Brian - Glad I'm not the only one.

G - Thanks for all your hard work organising 55 each week.

Moon - I think they are quite mad.

Whitesnake - Ditto xxxx

Lime - your comment made me LOL!

Talon - I felt the same way the first time.

Fantastic video, but, oh, I'm with G-Man. Where's the Dramamine?

I'm sure WS thinks blonde moments are part of your charm.

KB said...

Patti- I just asked WS and you are quite right.

I've never seen that show. This was just excellent my friend. I too had a blonde moment there for a second...LOL Happy Friday :)

Jinksy said...

Boat naming is obviously a flourishing art!

Claudia said...

i don't know the show - but Sig Nothwestern is a fabulous name - for both - a ship or a guy…smiles…

Monkey Man said...

Funny stuff. Definitely a "blond" moment.

Missy said...

Deadliest Catch has been one of my favs for the past three years. For me it's a bittersweet season though as we lost Phil of the Cornelia Marie. He was the one I like the most, the Andy and Johnathan Hillstrand.

Loved your post and I LOL outloud over it hehehehehe that was great.

RNSANE said...

"The Deadliest Catch" is such an amazing show. I laugh at your blond moment. I thought those were purely fiction and something about which the rest of the world could joke ( and I think they are ). Good for me since I'm a brunette!!

Jingle said...

enjoyable 55 show.
thanks for sharing!

my 55 is here

Teresa said...

I'm certainly a landlubber, so I can understand the confusion!

Marja said...

Got lots of these moments and I am not even blond Don't know this show Looks good
You had a very bad storm yesterday I saw on TV Hopefully the weather gets better

Linda said...

Looks like a wild show. About those names - we all have moments like that.

Anonymous said...

Don't know diddly squat about the show, but I sure do make an idiot of myself with monotonous regularity, and my hair's not - and never was - blonde: it's white.

Elizabeth said...

My hair is not blonde, but I've been having senior moments through most of my existence. Guess that makes me an early bloomer. I immediately thought the names were ficticious, some sort of secret code maybe? Reality seldom lives up to what goes through my mind, shucks. Does that make me blonde?
