The squirrels stole pegs from every washing line they could find, desperate to keep the leaves from falling from the trees. #vss #ThePush #AStoryADay

Today's #vss theme for #ThePush from me and @goosefat101 is 'pegs'... as inspired by the ones I can see dancing on the neighbour's washing line! #AmWriting #WritingCommunity #Prompt
