A Challenge and an Award

My friend Janet gave out this photo challenge so I'm taking her up on it. I had to go into my photo file, open the sixth folder and post the sixth picture. Here it is:

This photo was taken at 7:14pm (obviously!) on August 25th, 2008. We had just moved to Massachusetts in June and my friend Lorraine {{{waves...hi Lorraine!}}} told me she'd be in the are in August because her son's soccer team was playing exhibition games in New England. Of course we met up and spent the day together laughing and catching up, then I went into Boston with her to watch the soccer game at Boston University. There aren't any people in the photo, but it still puts a smile on my face when I think back to how much fun we had.  :)

An Award: Earlier in January Mamawheelie gave me a wonderful blog award. Thank you so much! 
The award means that this blog invests and believes in the PROXIMITY-nearness in space, time and relationships. The following blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandissement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who much choose eight more and include this cleverly written-text in the body of their award.

I'm sending both of these out at the same time, to the same people, YOU! So please play along. I think the photo challenge is a's so much fun reading people's stories. And the blog award...who doesn't deserve a blog award. Please feel free to consider yourself "awarded" and pass it along.  :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
