Five Day Challenge – Day 4

The Five Day Challenge is
Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge.


An eight year old has her birthday party at Great Granddad’s.

Rachel is 8 and Grandad is almost 100 years old.  Imagine the excitement of having her birthday party at his house. Twelve little girls, Rachel’s parents and one grandmother, a great uncle and us.

At times the noise reached a pitch that just about drove us out of the house but then the lady with the birds and animals arrived.


All the children loved the fact that they were allowed to hold the bunnies, the guinea pigs and the chickens.  Granddad, who had been a farmer for many years, delighted in seeing the animals, holding a chicken and seeing the delight on the children’s faces.

A day to remember.

And once again special thanks to Cat at Catterel for nominating me.  Now I nominate Patricia at Patricia’s Place.  Hers is a blog well worth reading.
