Favorite Fun Foto Friday
Deborah had the cutest picture posted on her blog with a fun idea as well! Post a favorite photo Friday! I had already posted my 4th of July best wishes post for Friday but had to pop back in and post a photo that still tickles me as much now as it did the first time I saw it! Bill was on his first Navy cruise aboard the USS America. It was the very early 80s and the ship ported in Africa. Bill and several of his squadron buddies headed into Kenya to Masai Mara. Masai Mara is a National Reserve administered by the Masai people of Narok. The Masai can use the area and graze their cattle inside the reserve. The villages are found outside the reserve. There the guys embarked on a photographic safari. It was quite a wonderful experience for them all, and Bill, the Anthropology major, was able to get to know many of the Masai. This photo was taken by one of his friends and it always makes me laugh. Who looks more thrilled in this photo? Bill...or the poor tribesman who had to stand there with this goofy American guy? Actually, Bill enjoyed himself immensely during this trip but you sure would not know it from his stiff stance and the expression on his face! Oh the silly captions that we have thought up over the years...some are not even printable on a family friendly blog! *smile* Now, just what captions can YOU create hmmmm?
