Resting on the Path to Brotherhood

photo taken May 23, 2007 • title thanks to Dianne

My my my… it was hard to choose one this week!

Final contenders were:
“Between a rock and a hard place,” left by several, so great for this shot.
“Just walk on by,” left by two, quoting two very different songs. Yes!

“Look, if I put my ears like this my shadow looks like a cat.
“Mom told Eli to take me for some Rocky Road. I don’t think this is what she meant.”
Have I told you I love your brains?

Kit & Bit; Rock, Puppy, Whiskers; Dear in the Headlights~ clever and cute.

“Oh, Brother!” comes in as a very close runner-up….
And Dianne, I chose yours. You are good – tying together the visual elements of the photo and the history of Charlie and Eli and the scene itself – it is fantastic!

Thanks, thanks, thanks to one and all!

• • • I don’t know about you, but I need more weekend.  Or more time in bed.  Milking a cow is a full-body workout.  But I’ve got the two-handed rhythm down, and Daisy is an absolute doll and hasn’t kicked me in the head.  She’s a very cuddly cow, really.  While I’m out with my cow, continuing to perfect my technique, it’s up to you to give this photo a title, caption, or dialogue.

I can’t wait to see your brilliant brains take on this pic.  My favorite entry will get a naturally shed deer antler – this particular one is remarkable because it is a four-point horn (ie, there are four points), but it is only about six inches across – mini! – and two of the points have been gnawed on by fox or coyote.  It is a treasure in its imperfections.
