The 6th Photo Meme - "The Ties that Bind"

Blackbird tagged me for the 6th Photo from the 6th Folder Meme. But I didn't like that picture. I renamed some folders and recounted. I also tried 3 of 3 and 4 of 4. Some of the results were: strangers at a ren Faire, food on a plate, other people's cars. Nothing that resonated with me.

Then I hit on the slightly cheaty bright idea of counting from the bottom! 6th folder from the bottom, 6th photo from the end! And voila! This is a keeper. This is one I can blog about!


August 18, 2004: Ernest is 8 years old. He recently discovered a love of ties--so great a love that his piano teacher gave him a batch of her father's ties. I love the creative contrast of the tie and the tie-dye. On the wall in the background? Frank's silhouette from his 8th grade graduation.

There are two other tie photos in that folder:

Ernest and his precious CatBaby, all dressed up with nowhere to go.

And the tie that started it all...




He wore this in his first theatrical endeavor, with a classy white shirt, not a t-shirt! I have no photos of that, but a videotape exists somewhere. He was sad when he had to return this tie to the costumer, and thus the tie obsession was born. He's got quite a collection now. I should get him a tie rack -- they keep falling off the hanger.

There you go, the 6th photo from the 6th folder, in my own backwards style.

Go tag yourselves!

May a doting grandmother supply the tie rack for Christmas? Instead of another gift card to iTunes.

Really, one has to cheat on these things. Your method was great, and I love the photos!

(About the chicken thighs, I love Cheri's idea. Hilarious. I don't do thighs or whole chickens or anything with a bone... but I have a good crock pot recipe for chicken breasts. I make it up in batches of about 5 and freeze it and give it away when people need a meal. I get raves about it. I HAVE eaten it myself and like it, but get bored with repeated food, so we do not have it much. I would give you the recipe now, but I'm sick upstairs with my husband's laptop. If you want it, let me know and I'll e-mail it later this week.)
