A whirl of caracters rising upward:
a girl in a green dress
a Hawaiian-shirted tourist
two cheese smugglars
for the ffun
The photo was taken at the DeVere Hotel in Swindon, UK, May, 2008. The occassion was the second Fforde Ffiesta, a gathering for fans of the author, Jasper Fforde. (You can find out about Jasper Here and Here.) My husband, our son, and I have been attending these events since 2005, because these people are like family; each event has become a family reunion of sorts. Those of us who consider ourselves members of this wacky, wonderful family are celebrating the fact that this weekend is EXACTLY 12 months away from the next reunion. We can barely contain our enthusiasm.

Mary, very cool shot – isn’t interesting how the groups we belong to become like family? I hope all is well with you and your family. Have a wonderful weekend.
Thanks, Clay. I love the fact that we can have so many groups of “family” that nurture different parts of who we are. It makes life so enjoyable.
Have a great Memorial Day. Are you going to the lake?
I’m intrigued by the mention of “cheese smugglars” 😄 Nice poem and ffoto.
Thank you, Blue. There were are actually two “cheese smugglars” in this group. They are in disguise!
Oh Mary! You are a gem and I love this! I keep finding more every time I look at your photograph AND your poem. More please 🙂
Thank you! I am getting more used to sharing poems, thanks to Christy. I’m working on one now that I hope to post soon. Stay tuned . . .
Love the poem, photo and story behind the photo. Wonderful!
