I’ll fess up about today’s joke. That naughty fishducky and I stole it from someone who is even funnier than us. Hope she doesn’t find out! Between you and me, we nicked it from Eva at Wrestling with Retirement. She is hilarious, so by way of saying sorry, I am providing a link for you to drop by and visit her if you haven’t already. She is well worth a visit.

Visibly shaken, Laura stared at the woman’s lined face, then at the single flickering candle, then down at her hands.
She took a few deep breaths to compose herself and to stop her mind racing. She simply had to know.
She met the Fortune Teller’s gaze, steadied her voice and asked, “Will I be acquitted?”
