Linda was pouring over the stuff that wasn’t damaged in the explosion last week. “Help me find those negatives, Ron.”

“What are you looking for, Linda?”

“Lucy’s baby picture negatives. I don’t care about the rest of this stuff. We can replace it, but the baby pictures we cant.”

**********276 characters************

Rules from Kat:

Each Tuesday I will provide a photo prompt. Your mission, if you choose to accept the challenge, is to tell a story in 280 characters or less. When you write your tale, be sure to let me know in the comments with a link to your tale. If you would prefer to post your tale in the comments (some people have very specific blog themes but still want to participate), I am happy to post a link to your site when I post your tale in the Round Up.

A final note: if you need help tracking the number of characters in your story, there is a nifty online tool that will count for you at

I will do a roundup each Tuesday, along with providing a new prompt. And if for some reason I missed your entry in the Roundup, as I have occasionally done, please let me know. I want to be sure to include your tale.

Finally, have fun!

And REMEMBER…you have 280 characters (spaces and punctuation included), to tell your tale…and a week to do it. I can’t wait to see what you create this week.

        I understand that. I walked away from my home, and everything but my books and photos when I divorced. My kids sided with him so I lost them for several years too. Fortunately a few of them have come back around. It’s like a death. Hugs Tessa. ❤️

              I agree with you. I am in worst financial state, but money isn’t everything. I am happier without the other half. Not saying I wouldn’t try again if the right man came along, but I have learned more since then. For one thing we were too young to know what we were doing. We were only 19 at the time of marriage.
