"WANNA SEE MY ETCHINGS?" aka SHOW ME YOUR PICTURE (6X6X6)

Okay, no, I'm really not trying to invite you "upstairs" to supposedly see some phantom artwork, LOL! This is actually a blog "idea" I stumbled across the other day that I thought I would try, and then yes, (you lucky friends, you!) "tag" some more bloggers to share...here's the way we "play"...

Show Me Your Picture (6X6X6)

1. Post the 6th picture from the 6th folder in your computer's "picture" file ("my pictures").
2. Write (blog) about the picture.
3. Tag 6 new people - be sure to go to their blog, make the "tag" by leaving a comment and direct them to your blog to get the instructions.
4. Copy the permalink for your 6X6X6 entry and post it as a "comment" to your original "tagger's" 6X6X6 entry (be sure to post the permalink not just the link to your blog - get the permalink by clicking on the blog entry title and then copying that http address).

First, here's the 6th picture that was in my 6th photo folder - and no, it's not a jewelry or soccer pic, LOL!

As it turns out, my "6th" folder contains the book clips that I end up using here on the blog, and the 6th photo was the picture of a book I recently finished (at the recommendation of son Andrew), Maugham's The Razor Edge. Andrew told me that he thought it was in his "top 5 books ever" which naturally intrigued me, so I picked it up and had a go. It is indeed, a "top 5" for me, as well. A unique point of view, with the narrator not only first person, but Maugham himself, it explores such organic issues as the search for God or a universal power and the real meaning of life.

So, now let the "tagging" begin...

1. Pricilla (can't wait to see what my favorite "goat" has in her photo folders!)

2. OrionDesigns

3. AinseLife

4. Bitter Sweet Symphony

5. AbeLee's

Yeah, Marcy, LOL! I was afraid somebody might jump on that one!! I'm not sure what this was originally called (can't find the blog I was on when I saw it!!) so I just made up the title - and was VERY careful to put the "X's" in there!!! ;-) Guess I should have made everyone forward it to 7 people??? Ha!!

No no tags-I just read it and decided to try it out. But my 666 will never see the light of day-thank you very much. :)
