Let's Play a Game

Mindy here. Today I thought I'd borrow one of Angie's ideas. We're going to get creative and have a little fun.

Okay, here's a picture. Be sure you study it closely. Take in all the details, then tell me what you think the story is.



I can't wait to read your ideas. I'll pop back in this evening to let you know the real story.

Happy Tuesday, everyone.

  1. I think the kid (boy or girl?) tried to "fish" the birds' nest out of the tree.

  2. Ah, you caught an important, almost obscure, detail, Dianna.

  3. Well, you see, the thing is it's really cold and I was trying to start a fire, but the log wouldn't catch. They said to gather some sticks...I could only find one. Now I'm out of matches. I guess I'll freeze out here, although my coat is pretty warm...maybe I can find to rocks and rub them together to make fire. Hmmm..

  5. Now for the real story. This is my oldest grandson, and he's having a major pity party. Over spring break, he was our most dedicated fisherman. He would literally spend all day out there. But alas, he tried to cast a little too close to the tree and the burr oak not only ate his lure, but refused to give back the pole. Naturally, no one was able to help him retrieve it in a timely enough manner for him.
    His mother and I couldn't help but laugh. He was so forelorn and dejected. Eventually, his uncle helped him though and he resumed his post, albeit AWAY from the fishing-pole-eating-tree.
