Six Word Photo Challenge

15 Oct

In which I combine two memes.

I have nothing to blog about today; how is that possible?  It is impossible.  I will therefore use this Six Word Saturday to introduce non-WordPress bloggers to the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge.

It is optional.  It is easy:

Take a new photograph or, as I interpret it, use an old photograph, to interpret the theme.  This week’s theme is Possibility.  Here’s my entry:

It is possible this child grew up to be respectful of and towards his mother. 

Possible, but unlikely.

To put it another way: he’s going to be a politician; the only thing he’ll learn to respect is the polls.

Ah, well.  He’ll get my vote anyway.  I’m his mother; it would be impossible for me not to support him, no matter how disgraceful his career choice.

    I love the way you can make something out of nothing. Is Toryboy on the way to PM-ship yet?

    Mothers are amazing; will support virtually anything. God bless you all. My old man, on the other hand, pitched a fit & immediately disowned me when he discovered that I was writing poetry. You would have thought I’d been commiting mass murder.

    Hey . . . maybe he’ll be an honest politician. That’s a possibility. 😉

      If we’ve done our job properly… 🙂

    Great interpretation of the theme.

    Hi T.B, cute kid! ~~ You’ve said a lot about what that kid has to look up to. 🙂

    politicians can’t all be bad…look at their cute, adorable beginnings!


    • Tilly Bud October 15, 2011 at 16:00 #

      True, true…must be their warped upbringing 🙂


  7. Karen S. October 15, 2011 at 16:06 #

    Seems to me your blogging skills are still on the top of genius!

    I want to know about the sweater that precious child is wearing…


    • Tilly Bud October 15, 2011 at 16:40 #

      That’s a proper baby cardigan, made by the Hub’s elderly uncle’s elderly wife, twenty-three years ago, before Tory Boy was even planned. 🙂

    Awww….what a cutie!!! 🙂


  10. Lorna's Voice October 15, 2011 at 17:33 #

    My son is destined for politics, too. He wants to be the “voice of the voiceless.” We’ll see…


  11. Gobetween October 15, 2011 at 17:38 #

    He is such a kind boy. I heard that when the elections start he will be sending his mother to a far away land for a little holiday 😉

    Tilly, good for you. All Mothers should support their children until they are old enought to get a job. Dianne


    • Tilly Bud October 17, 2011 at 10:35 #

      Oh, he works; he has had a job of one sort or another since he was thirteen. He has two part-time jobs at the moment. He’s a good boy who’s going to look after me when I’m retired. He’s already picked out the best asylum.


  13. Brenda Youngerman October 15, 2011 at 18:04 #

    I’d vote him.. just on your say so.. A mother would NEVER lie about her own child… would she?


    • Tilly Bud October 17, 2011 at 10:37 #

      Exactly! I see you are a woman of great natural intelligence 🙂


  14. Kasi October 15, 2011 at 18:24 #

    A cutie! 🙂


  15. Tami October 15, 2011 at 18:30 #

    Mothering gets so much tougher when they’re out in the world making choices, doesn’t it? Good for you for being a supportive mom – even if you don’t support the career choice. The little monsters just become a part of you that you can never let go. 🙂


    • Tilly Bud October 17, 2011 at 10:39 #

      That is sooo true.

      I’m really quite proud that he wants to serve the public this way, but politics is all about compromise so I think he’ll find it difficult.

    Thanks for the visit! Happy SWS! : )


  17. Robin October 15, 2011 at 19:34 #

    My Son is 12 and all the possibilities are still open to him, I can’t wait to see what he chooses and I will support him in whatever it is. Happy 6W Saturday!


  18. Jess October 15, 2011 at 19:35 #

    He may change the world,who knows!There’s got to be some good politicians out there surely!
    And yes as a mum we tend to support them whatever,I guess that’s part of being a mum!


    • Tilly Bud October 17, 2011 at 10:41 #

      I think there are more good politicians than not; it’s the system that needs fixing.


  19. kateshrewsday October 15, 2011 at 20:14 #

    Love it, Tilly 😀 I was so dense I never tumbled to the punchline until it tumbled over me!


  20. barb19 October 15, 2011 at 21:56 #

    . . . and with the PM-ship comes the possibility of him keeping you in Maltesers for the rest of your life . . . what a thought Tilly!


  21. Call Me Cate October 15, 2011 at 23:05 #

    The world needs more supportive mothers. My own is notsomuch. Vote away! And thanks for playing 6WS!


    • Tilly Bud October 17, 2011 at 10:53 #

      I’m sorry to hear that. It happens more than it should, doesn’t it?


  22. planaquarium October 16, 2011 at 01:49 #

    Ah, too cute! No wonder you are laughing!


  23. Betty October 16, 2011 at 04:55 #

    that was a cute meme with possibility; sweet child! Loved how you wrote it and tied it together with two memes! Just visiting from 6WS 🙂

    enjoy Sunday!



  24. ElizOF October 16, 2011 at 20:34 #

    What an adorable baby… I see the resemblance in the eyes… Yes, that daring twinkle. 😉

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
