People may get the wrong impression of someone’s life if they rely solely on social media. We tend to write about and photograph the good things, omitting the sad and ugly. I’m going to share a kitchen accident, so that you will know things are not always perfect at our house. I put a bottle of tartar sauce too near the edge of the refrigerator shelf. When John pulled the door open, the bottle smashed on the tile floor. What a mess! There was broken glass in an oozing puddle of pungent sauce. John and son John $pencer moved in to clean it up, advising Rose to put dog Sadie out on the porch. That saved us from rushing to the vet with a bleeding dog.
Rose suggested we pose as directing the clean-up, and David acted as photographer.
The men did a wonderful job of cleaning and vacuuming up shards of glass. As you might guess, the floor was cleaner than it had been before the accident. After that excitement, the younger generations began to pack for their hike the next day, spending a day and night on the trail. $ loaned equipment to David and advised him what to take. The next morning I hovered with the camera but didn’t ask them to pose. The picture shows David going to the garage door, carrying his pack.
A few minutes after they left, my phone dinged. Rose texted me a photo of two happy campers, David and Sadie. They were off to a good start.
