I'm late posting this time, but if you want to give it a try, go to http://www.stonyriver.ie/ and follow the isntructions there. It's simple really--copy and paste the picture from Stony River's prompt into your blog and write a short-short story, not to exceed 140 characters, about the picture. It's not so easy as it sounds!

EEWWW!! Oh but so many possibilities in that beetle!

I am SO sorry I missed this on Monday -- what a week I've had. I've been wanting to call you but the kids and the incoming phone calls keep getting in my way -- that and walking everywhere (thanks to the kid who wrecked our car! grrr...)
