Spinning Cups

photo by © J Hardy Carroll.

While scrolling through social media, Lucy stopped suddenly.

“Do you recognize this photo?” the text said.

“I do!” she thought, “those are the Spinning Cups at Lakeview Amusement Park. I wonder if it’s still there?”

She expanded the photo. “That’s me and…” she glanced at the profile picture, “and that’s my cousin Sue! Wow! How many years has it been?”

Lucy read the post, “My name is Sue Miller. I’m looking for my cousin, Lucy. Please share.”

Lucy messaged her right away.

She spent the next week catching up, making up for lost time, until time ran out for Sue.
