SPC: September, Week 1 - With Johnny


Deprecated: preg_replace(): The /e modifier is deprecated, use preg_replace_callback instead in /home/debricha/public_html/blog/wp-includes/formatting.php on line 74

The September theme for the Self-Portrait Challenge is “With Someone” and the instructions are to “…include someone else in your self portrait. Someone meaningful to your life or to the moment or to a specific event that you wish to document.”

So naturally I have to start the month by sharing a self-portrait with my DearestDarlin’OnlyOne, a.k.a. my husband, a.k.a. Johnny, a.k.a. J. I chose to share a glimpse into some of my favorite moments with J - the quiet moments alone.

Edited to add: In case anyone else wonders, as Janet did, what the heck we’re holding in the top left photo, it’s a peeled pear. We have several apple and pear trees along one side of our driveway and one of the things J does when we go for walks together and the fruit is ripe is to pick an apple or pear and he’ll peel it and slice it for us to share as we walk. He would probably just eat it as-is if he was alone, but he knows I’m grossed out (almost to the point of phobic) by fruit and/or veggie skins (it’s a texture thing!). So even though he thinks it’s silly, he indulges me by peeling it before we share it, because he loves me. :-)

    What lovely and unusual views of a relationship. I especially like the hands and the faces - the feet leave me feeling a little dizzy (like love, I guess!)

    Cute photo and cute peel story! Funny you and your fruit skins! Pear skins can be kind of leathery sometimes. And I’m jealous about the pear tree. I love pears. And walks.

    Here’s a big thank you to all of you who stopped by to visit and left a comment. It was fun hearing which of the photos was your favorite.

    To Shirley: J does, in fact, have several brothers and a couple of them are unmarried - one currently in a relationship and one not (at least the last I heard). Wanna come visit and be introduced? :-)
    Dragonfly, I’m a huge fan of old movies, so I’ve probably seen that one at one time, but not lately. I’ve been calling J DDOO for years - don’t even remember when, where, or why I started!
