Our Photo Challenge Subject was "Something As Tall As You Are". I was not getting any ideas and even thought about skipping this one. When I mentioned it to Mom, she said to just find something you can see eye to eye. We hung up the phone and I started cooking supper. (By the way, Mama had called to talk about a review that she had read about her new camera. She is anxiously waiting for her new Nikon just like mine. I know she is gonna love it.) Anyway, I was in the middle of cooking and realized I needed a few things from the grocery store. I picked up my keys and shot out on that quick errand. When I returned home, I saw the caution sign above and wondered about it's height. I parked my car and walked down to the sign and Yep...we are the same height. It stands all of 5'2 just like me!
I didn't have my camera at the time of the measure up. Plus, I needed to hurry up and finish supper. I got the meal almost prepared when I heard the rumblings. Thunder was rolling in and the clouds started moving pretty fast. I knew we were going to get a much needed rain shower. So, I picked up the point and shoot and ran down the little street to try to take a picture for the challenge.
As I was taking the pic, I saw a couple of little guys wheelin' around. They were probably trying to hustle home before they got rained on. I know they have to be soooo happy because this was the last day of school for them I think. I remember that last day of school when I was a kid. FREEDOM! All I wanted to do was...everything that I wanted to do! Do you know what I am talking about? I wanted to jump on my bike and peddle like crazy, then go to the next fun thing I could think of and do that. I remember that last day of school feeling alright. So, enjoy the summer kids. Be safe and play, play, play to your hearts content!
