Windows fascinate me for a whole lot of reasons. Whether you're on the inside looking out or the outside looking in, they give you a chance to see something beyond the usual. When I was a child, I often sat beside them and let my mind wander. Three scenarios remain incredibly vivid memories, for some reason:
- My bedroom window overlooked the driveway, and I often sat on the floor and waited for my parents to come home.
- My hospital room window gave me a wide open view of the city, and I often wondered what it would be like to walk the streets on my own. It gave me extra incentive to get back on my feet.
- The windows in my grandparents' apartment were much darker, overlooking a forbidding-looking laneway without much of a view at all. Yet the light in their humble home always seemed to come from within.
Your turn: Please suggest a caption for this apparently simple window scene. Plain as it looks, it's a wall that has significance to me. A story for another day, perhaps. Need more background on how this Caption This thing works? Click here.
About last week's photo of an old television: This is one of the last photos I took before we headed home from vacation, and it's one of my favorites. I'm glad so many of you thought so, too! This week's honorable menschens are:
- Hilary: In the 1990's situation comedy character, Dr. Frasier Crane grabs television ratings.
- Terri: "I want my MTV!"
- Judy: "From trash thou comest and to trash thou shalt return!"
- Steve: "Now that's TV worth watching!"
- Morah Mommy: "There really is only trash on tv!"
- Snaggle Tooth: "You're not the brightest tube on the block- you're burnt out!"
- Sara: "All those years of playing video games with joysticks came in handy after all!"
