    • Thank you Marcia! It was a fun creative exercise…
      A nice break from the usual longer posts… I enjoyed it very much. 🙂

  • Great 6 word stories. ” Mary had a little cute lamb.” would that work? Timbuktu’s sound so familiar, but I forgot what it meant other than this post. Stay blessed always.

    • Your nursery rhyme would be a great story with a modern twist… Timbuktu is a real place; it is a town in the West African nation of Mali. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

    • I love the one you wrote too… It works well with the self-portrait with Barbara in the foreground… Holland hey! 🙂

    • TY Robin,
      It was a lot of fun and the photos helped me a bit… Interestingly, after I wrote them, lots of short story ideas came flooding through my mind. I will write them offline… 🙂

    • TY Jacqui,
      Actually, all the photos came from Wikipedia and I add the attributions at the bottom of each post. I’m glad you asked…
      Wikipedia has become my best source as we can use the ones Zemanta recommends or find our own on their site. A real help.
      I no longer troll the internet looking for Creative Commons allowed photos as I get them quickly on Wiki and Flickr now. Thank God! 🙂

    • It was a toss up between this close up shot or a scenery one that featured it but was a tad small… I’m glad you like it… For some reason, I find myself going to Timbuktu in my mind a lot… It is in a country I’d love to visit in this lifetime; so ancient with a rich history… TY! 🙂
