I recently received the following invitation from Author SB Mazing
I’m about to invite you to join in a challenge I recently accepted. Five Photos, Five Stories. I thought this challenge could present you with the opportunity of viewing blogging from a different angle, to do something different, anything that suits you for that matter. It’s entirely up to you. …
I thought, I might try this one, despite the fact that I am not the world’s best photographer! There are some rules that go with it which are as follows:
The Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge rules require you to post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or simply a short paragraph – it’s entirely up to you.
So here is my attempt..
This picture is one of my favourites of my dad as he was so relaxed and happy. He and my step-mother had travelled up for my wedding to Mr Grump in 2009. That was the last time he would visit us here as he died three years later, in April 2012.
I decided to write a poem for him,
Dad you were a gentleman
Always kind and fair
But when you got into a strop
You’d madly clutch your hair!
Dad you were a scholar
So clever and so wise
You also had an appetite
For curries, roasts and pies!
Dad you were a swimmer
In for your daily dip
But when dancing the Macarena
I thought you’d break a hip!
Dad, you were my hero
And although no longer here
I have my treasured memories
Of which I hold so dear.
I would like to invite Donna from Homemade naturally to join in.
Then each day, nominate another blogger to carry on this challenge.
Accepting the challenge is entirely up to the person nominated, it is not a command. And actually everyone can join in. So feel free to if you like the idea.
