Have you ever noticed when digging through a pile or box of old photos, the musty smell of attic? A surge of that odor hit me today as I searched for photos for this week’s Sepia Saturday post. It reminded me of my grandmother who had a really neat attic (neat to a kid, not neat as in tidy), which reminded me that she and my grandfather went on a couple cruises back in the day, and that brings us full circle to the prompt, which is ships, water, vacations, travel, etc. Let’s make up a little story shall we?
Disclaimer: all situations and incidents herein are fictional and completely fabricated for the sake of entertaining the Sepians visiting. Any relation, similarity or familiarity with these photos, situations and incidents are completely coincidental. Some names have been changed to protect the innocent. Or, completely made up. In fact, yes, they are all completely made up.
Here we have Vernon and Myrtle standing by the port side of their ship. Myrtle is a bit nervous about the whole cruise experience, so Vernon is making sure she doesn’t waste their money by jumping ship. Vernon just robbed Fort Knox.
That’s more like it, Myrtle, act natural. The feds are on to us and we need to make it to Rio.
Betty and Florinda met Vernon and Myrtle on board the ship. They are happy to be escaping a life of housework and childrearing in Iowa by moving to Rio. They plan to open up a bar with Vernon and Myrtle. Last we heard from them….. you add the next bit!
