... I call Jenny over ....
okay, admit it ... this game was tough ... really tough ...and it was never the easiest schoolyard game for me to play ... and being the tiniest kid in the school yard didn't help much either. But I think it was on the cold and wet gravel field that was our recess playground that i learned a lot about inner strength and determination. Wee tiny me would take stock of the players on the opposite side ... would look for flinching fingers, cold hands, the weak link ... and when called ... would run, full throttle, short little legs pumping as fast they could ... and finally leap onto the joined hands.... crashing through ... landing on the gravel in a heap, knees cut and bloodied from the fall into the gravel ... none of it mattering as long as i, the tiniest kid, could break through ... yup, this was all about guts, determination and the will to succeed ...
geez, and here i thought i was just going to post pictures for Jenny's summer school meme ... i guess that's why i enjoy blogging ... i just let my mind wander and before i know it, a bit of me is spilling across the www universe.
and now, pictures ... some of them were shot just a day or two ago, others years and years ago ... but they are all some of my fav "red" shots.
