This weekend, our witty friend Galen will hand off his beloved daughter to her fiance in marriage. In a flash, his child will be setting up house with another.
Recognizing this auspicious occasion, today’s Friday Flash-55 is dedicated to the G-man. Congratulations and best wishes!
The Tailor Made Girl
By C. Jay Taylor
The spiffiest papa this hour,
Beholding his lovely young flower.
Adorned all in white,
This beautiful sight,
He wished he could stash in a tower.
But walls wouldn’t hold hands of time,
Not stave off this moment sublime.
With eyes closed, he gasped.
His child’s grip he grasped
And up to the altar did climb.
