Trilingual six word story challenge – DIY


Raised fence

DOLDRIEST has set the topic as DIY for her latest ultra-flash-fiction challenge, which requires a six-word story supported by a picture.  I am doing my story in Dutch, Afrikaans and English.  (The picture speaks all of them.)

Lage muur hoger; honden thuis blijven!

Lae muur hoër; honde bly tuis!

Low wall higher; dogs stay home!

I do hope this invention (self and DIY friend), and construction and fitting (the DIY friend), is going to prove collie-proof!  It will be noted why I needed to fix my chainsaw – that pile foreground right had to be removed to allow the raisers to fit.

  2. That’s a solid piece of work, Col! And after I googled the abbreviation DIY, I can’t understand why I didn’t understand that immediately LOL.
    I hope your story has a happy ending and your collie stays in his domain! 😀
    Thanks for participating once more, and have a lovely Saturday.
