Welcome all to the latest weekly writing challenge.  There is a picture, a quotation and a 500 word limit. The Challenge is to take whatever is sparked by the picture and/or the quotation, however tenuous or remote the connection, and see how much fun you can have in 500 words (just between us we never count them as long as we're enjoying things and you are too, but don't tell anyone). The deadline is midnight next Tuesday (GMT) Here is the picture prompt  Please credit if you show it on your blog.
