Olympics On Board (NYPD) – Friday Flash 55


NYPD cruiser noses one spot on riverside, again, again.

Crowd peers over railing, seeking the suspicious.  Six months back, men in wetsuits retrieved a baby carriage (empty), but who knows what now? A corpse? A bomb?  (Could get lucky.)

Inside boat’s cabin, synchronized divers jackknife into water blue as sky, again, again.

All suddenly transfixed.


Here’s my Friday Flash 55.  True Story.  Unfortunately, the pic I got shows the TV scanning the (I think) Chinese team rather than the turquoise swimming pool but you get the idea.  Tell it to the G-Man

And dive into a great weekend. 

And speaking of diving!  Check out my very silly (but fun) novel Nose Dive, for those interested in musicals, cheese and downtown NYC, or just in escapist fun.

    Love the 55–divers watching diving. Definitely has what Billy Joel (I think) called the New York State of Mind, with the corpse in river touch…I ended up watching more of the Olympics than I thought I would, but it’s become a bit too much like reality TV for me to watch too much.

      Ha. I haven’t actually watched any. I keep thinking I should but I am really not a TV person, and the one time I turned it on, they had that Ryan Seacrest guy, who I couldn’t stand. I’ve tried to watch online a bit, but a bit mad at NBC being so proprietary. We have a relative in them, so I will try to watch HER Race! k.

    Not at all put off by the pic. The idea comes through loud and clear.
