Picture meme: Thanks Jonathan!

Jonathan Hunt at (a great blog -- learn about rats as pets!) tagged me to do the Sixth Photo meme (instructions here). Following the meme, which directs me to folders on my hard disk, I ended up with this picture.

Bob and I are in a little park called Prophetstown in Indiana. The park is a old restored barn and farmhouse, and also an operating farm. The historic park helps children learn about farm life in the 1920s. I of course hung out with the horses when we went to visit with my mom, who is a park volunteer and supporter. What I love about this photo is that despite the mud, the background and the sky are lovely. I feel like we've been plopped into a postcard.

A story about rats
And in honor of the Fancyrat blog, I'll share a story about a friend's pet rat. Sharon had a lovely white rat named Snow. One night she and her husband were on the couch eating potato chips and watching TV. Snow jumped up next to her shoulder. He looked at the couple and their bowl of chips. Tben he jumped down, went to the kitchen, and returned with a chunk of his rat kibble. Snow jumped back up to his perch, and they all gazed at the TV eating their respective snacks. It was a neat story, I think!

Here were the photo meme instructions...

The Sixth Photo Game
--Go to your Picture Folder on your computer or wherever you store your pictures.
--Go to the 6th Folder and then pick the 6th Picture.
--Post it on your bloggy and tell the story that goes with the picture.
--Tag 5 other glorious peoples to do the same thing and leave a comment on their blog telling them about it.


  1. It is absolutely wonderful there, we are right here in South Bend Indiana, so we know right wher you are in that picture. Beautiful!

  2. I adapted this idea on my blog. I like some external direction now and then -- thanks!

  3. I liked the photo meme idea enough to start it myself, even though no one tagged me.



  4. I just found this entry and enjoyed it, so had to post my own!
