  11. Of course, like many people, I immediately recognized this trio was the famous Blodgetts of Sedalia, Missouri. My account of their life is now posted. I hope I got all of the facts correct.

  31. I've heard a lot about this place, but it's the first time that I've posted something out here. I'm no good with poems, but I wanted to write a short story - fiction - based on the picture and the caption accompanying it at the bottom. I hope that's fine...?

    Cheers,
    Joy...

  35. Loved the old time photo, reminded me of some I have of my parents when they were young! Shared an older poem about summers of my youth that I added the photo to, I thought they worked well together. Thanks for a great photo prompt!!

  42. This is a great photo and I am trying to squeeze time in to write a poem. Busy getting kids off to school... I won't let myself read anyone's take on this as I don't want to "copy" it. It is hard to wait... so I better get going! :) Thanks for hosting this challenge.
