Blog Prompt – When cheese gets its picture taken, what does it say? So what do you do to get your kids or group of people to say when you are taking their picture?
Oh my gosh!! When it comes time to taking pictures of our 8 grandkids all together, you say and do anything to get them all to look at the camera. Cheese doesn’t work. I guess our favorite is turtle poop or anything with the word poop in it. It will get them to smile and you can get a decent shot from that.
I have to tell you what happened at the Derby Party last week my husband and I attended.
It was a last minute party at a neighbors and there was a handful of us. We all put in $2.00 each and drew out of a hat one of the horses running in the race. Some people paid for 2 horses to make sure all 19 of the entries were drawn.
When I pulled my name out I noticed 50-1 odds and took it as the usual luck I have. My husband and another neighbor drew pretty bad horses also. So, during the race we sat in the back, knowing none of us were going to place but last and that would’ve been a 3 way tie.
My husband’s horse actually stayed in 2nd place for most of the race but then ran out of juice and I noticed one horse really taking off at the end with the big lead and the win. I think my other neighbors horse is still trying to get around the course. *LOL*
Then they announced the winner, Mine That Bird. I stood there for a moment and thought, “THAT’S MY HORSE!” I couldn’t believe it. My 50-1 horse came in first and I won the big pot of $35.00! I really wanted my odds, but my neighbor wouldn’t cough up the extra.Â hehehe
Just goes to show you, that you never know what will happen. Especially when you are the underdog.
Have a great day,
I’m just a country girl loving my geeky life with my wonderful husband, always taking pictures, getting my hands dirty in the garden, being crafty, exploring with travels and enjoying all this on a budget. But above all, living my faith as a child of God!
