I snapped this photo of Josephine just as she was about to say something. Your challenge is to share what you think she said to me via the comment box.
That’s it. Have fun and enjoy!
Last week’s challenge: Old Picture
To answer all the “inquiring minds” out there, this picture is of my grandmother and was taken in the late 1800’s. She grew up in North Carolina and so I’m guessing that’s where the picture was taken. She is sitting in a wheelbarrow in her family’s garden.
While I didn’t know her well, my grandmother loved gardening and grew the most beautiful roses! She quickly learned that I was never meant to be gardener. So, she taught me the skill of using a peppermint stick as a straw to drink tea, cold and very sweet tea. Hey, I’m from the South. What do you expect?
In this picture, I was told that she is feeding two baby mockingbirds that had fallen from their nest. I was also told she is holding an eyedropper, but now that I’ve looked closer with a magnifying glass, I’m not so sure. It does look a bit like a needle as Alien Ghost questioned!!!
However, I’m sticking with the eyedropper. The idea that my grandmother might be smiling as she put baby birds out of their misery, instead of feeding them, doesn’t bode well for my family tree:~)

This was tough. You didn’t make it easy on me and I wasn’t as specific as I usually am:~) Therefore, I’m including a few of you who didn’t do a “conversation,” but who did talk about what the birds might be saying. Here are the links to those who dared to take on last week’s “Special Challenge.”
