Weekly Photo Challenge: Unlikely

First, a nod to Michelle for an awesome post that includes this gem:
“2. 
If you ever have the opportunity to hang out in a pickup with an apex predator*, go for it.”

Similarly, if you ever have the opportunity to camp on National Park land in South Dakota with some large ungulates, do not hesitate to take it. 

This challenge got me to thinking about experiences I’ve had in the ten years that I’ve been a widow, and how much I would like to be able to tell my husband, “Can you believe it? This happened, and I’m sorry you missed it.”

For instance, I’d love to see his face when he hears that my little brother finally got married…and our youngest daughter officiated. 

And would he ever image that I would do the wedding photo shoot for our son?

Could he have pictured me as a costumed historic interpreter or a campaigner for a progressive presidential candidate? 

Ten years ago, I would have thought all these things were pretty unlikely, but change is always the surest thing in our future.  I’ve come to believe that’s not a bad thing.

  1. I haven’t camped with any buffalo (bison), but I’ve been very close to them in both South Dakota and Wyoming. What wonderful things to wish you could share with your husband! He would approve. 🙂

    • I’m indebted to another staff worker for that photo. That was a fun gig – I did 3 seasons and Steve did 2. Learned to cook on a wood stove, make soap, crochet, and play a pump organ. Who’d have thunk?
