Quirkyloon tagged me in a photo-meme. Since I haven't done this one in a while, I thought I would participate. Here are the rules:
- Go to your photos files and select the 8th photo folder.
- Select the 8th photo in that folder.
- Post that photo along with the story behind it. Then challenge 8 blogging friends to do the same by going to their blog and telling them "Tag You Are It!"
Author's Note: I typically feel that memes are a lot like chain letters, so I normally do not participate. But this one is always fun for me to come up with a story based upon a picture. Here you go:
Last summer we did not go camping like we usually do. In order to make it up to our grandson my wife and I decided to have Grandma/Grandpa Camp where we would do those activities we normally participate in when we are camping— but closer to home. If you are interested in that story, you can go here— but I digress… on with the story about the photo:
Just before we had breakfast we were trying to park the car and found that one of the streets was completely blocked by a downed tree from the thunderstorm the night before. After breakfast we went down that street to investigate. Our grandson was greatly impressed by the downed tree— especially since it took up the tree at it's roots. I was a bit surprised that it didn't do more damage than it did. Upon further investigation we found that it fell right on the roof of one car which pretty much hid it from view, unless you were looking for it. Our grandson thought it was cool— I thought it must have totaled the car.
If you are expecting me to list eight other people to participate in this meme— you are wrong. However, if you feel obliged to participate— I am not stopping you. If you do, let me know so I can see your photo-narrative skills at work.
