Sepia Saturday 115 GAMES;

My grandchildren came for a visit  and are playing a game together. I don't remember what sort of game it was. The picture was taken on the 7Th. December 2004.

The picture is  in colour, but I changed it to sepia to keep it  "authentic."

Lucian, my oldest grandson used to make his own games, when he spend  holidays  with us.; this one was called  "Attack of the green goo monster."  I think he was 10 when he made this one. At school his nickname was Mole, so he was super Mole,  our dog Taj was his super mutt Taj  etc.

This is my contribution to Sepia Saturday, Games; I did not find any old sepia or black and white "gamblers"!

Enjoy Sepia Saturday;  Sepia Saturday 115 Games

Monday; A passion in life;

Passion from the Ancient Greek verb paskho meaning to suffer is a term applied to a very strong feeling about a person or thing. Passion is an intense emotion compelling feeling, enthusiasm, or desire for something.
The term is also often applied to  an eager interest  for a cause  an activity or love - to a feeling of unusual excitement, enthusiasm or compelling emotion, a positive affinity  towards a subject, idea, person, or object.

Everybody should be passionate about something in life.  I am passionate about  nature, growing plants.
Sometimes I think the garden consumes me, but I wont complain as it is a passion and has no limits.

One day I will evaporate in  my garden like water droplets at sunrise.

Probably I will haunt this garden as long as it will exist. I will look over the shoulders of the next generation of gardeners; and he or she will shrug me away like a mosquito.

Here she is,  Jacquei, blue jersey, black pants, on a charity  bike ride.

My middle daughter is passionate about her bike. She has all the trimmings for it. She joins big bike tours.
Her last bike ride was from Broom to Perth , I think she pedaled  about 2400 km. Her next big bike tour will be from Darwin to Broom. 

Bill, Lilli's Partner is very passionate about his cars.  He is also a Pilot and is very passionate about flying.

He brings  "lotions" to polish my car to make it look perfect.  I am so not bothered when it comes to cars.  It does not matter to me what  sort of car I drive. 

My dearest Papa long past away  and my sister Rose.

My dad was very passionate about Mountains, Trees and Nature. He was a forester, managing  the forests of some municipalities.

My sister Rose was passionate about knitting. it was done to the highest standard. She knitted the most beautiful  jumpers, jackets, anything one could wear.

There is so much more, practically anything in Life one can be passionate about. At last but not at least LOVE ♥

If music be the food of love, play on
Shakespeare  Twelfth Night – Act 1, Scene 1
