Eerie...


Potty Mouth Mama tagged me today, the rules being that you must:

Open the 6th picture folder on your computer, open the 6th photo and blog it. Write something about it. Then tag 6 more people to do the same.

The 6th folder on our computer is a combination of our (Rog & myself) old childhood photos that we had scanned a few years back. It contains lots of gems including a picture of me & a duck that appeared in our local newspaper but you don't get to see that because it isn't number six.

The eerie part is that the picture in question is of Roger at primary school in Kinglake, one of the areas that has been so ravaged by the recent bushfires. Roger & his family only lived in the area for a few years but we actually went back for a visit last year to look at his old house & school. I find it very difficult to reconcile the images that are in the news with the lovely little township that we saw just a few months ago.

If you want to help the bushfire survivors there are so many things that you can do many of them listed over here.

They include:
So off you go, hop to it!
