Sepia Saturday 130 : 16 June 2012


With knees knocking and sweaty palms I’m taking on the stewardship of Alan’s precious meme whilst he is away.  I am of course both honoured and nervous. When Alan first mooted the suggestion on his recent visit to Lanzarote, I admit I tried to wriggle out of it. I thought he’d forgotten all about it, but he hadn’t. So there you are folks, you’re stuck with me and my choices for a few weeks and I do hope you enjoy the prompts I’ve selected for your delight. I’m sure we’ll have fun together.
This week’s choice (made by Alan) is from The State Library of New South Wales and features a couple embracing whilst a feline friend snakes between their legs. At first I thought they were dancing, then realised that the man was in uniform and they were either saying ‘goodbye’ or ‘hello’. So, for the themers amongst us there are lots of ideas; doorsteps, fond farewells, or arrivals, cats (or any other animal), who ‘play gooseberry’, legs separated from their owners, men in uniform. If you don’t fancy following a theme just give us something old inspired by the prompt, post it on, or around Saturday 16th June and don’t forget to add your name to Mr Linky below. If you have a moment to spare during the week pop back here to see what other contributors have come up with and give them some encouragement. You’re bound to be entertained by the sheer variety and creativity. 
Now, for those who have elected to get advanced warning of coming posts here are the next two. I take full responsibility for these choices, so I hope they pass muster.

You're off to a wonderful start, Marilyn. I'm struggling with June 23, but I'm set for June 30 (pun intended).

I changed my mind after first thinking of disembodied legs! Being on the threshold of this new venture as admin of SS, I went with doorsteps instead.

I looked for ladies in lingerie but I slipped up somewhere as they showed too much. You will have to made do the other forms of slip.

Some of you may already know that I've been on holiday, but now I am back and full of new stories.

This theme image was perfect for two special photos I have been saving for the right occasion. No cats but lots of shoes.

I'm saying goodbye this week. Have a fun trip Alan & Marilyn thanks for filling in.

Tattered and Lost said...

I've been away for several weeks due to bandwidth issues. Plenty of bandwidth to post, but not enough to visit.

This weeks post is very short.

C. Foxy said...

Well I gave it my best shot but I'm not going with the cat or legs themes this week. Hope you all are doing well.! Foxy

Titania said...

Not Sepia at all,

a feline tale.
For cat lovers only...

A great theme, kittens and shoes! I resisted Puss in Boots, but just barely.

Love is the theme I went with in today's post.
