Sandpiper did a fine job, despite her protests that she has not been blogging long, and knows little about such things. I haven't been blogging much longer than she. I have been tagged for one other meme, which I did the best I could for. This time, while I will attempt to do a six word memoir, I am afraid I will not go on to tag others. I found that it was not something most bloggers I happen to know really want to do. Or, those who are willing, have all been tagged so often that I hesitate to ask them to do another. So I think what I will do is throw it out there, saying, anyone who is interested, please feel free.
The reason I am doing it is that I find this particular one interesting and challenging. I thought about it a long time. All I came up with for myself is this: I will turn 76 this weekend. I am the last member of the older generation of my family still living. I have been a widow for 32 years. Two of my four children, and all of my grandchildren live in other states, and I seldom see them. Most of my old friends are also deceased, and the handful who are left are scattered across the United States. Thank heaven for the computer and email! All of this leaves me with six words:
Photographs bring loved ones close again.
If any of you agree with me that this little exercise is worth some time,
these are the rules:
The meme rules are:
I do not know how to comply with the rule about the original post, because I do not know where this one started. And, as I have said, I am not goiing to tag five others. Sorry, Sandpiper, I just don't think I can do that this time. But it is a fun one, and I hope the others you have tagged will follow all the rules.
