Photos with Captions, To Make You Smile and Think

Here we are, Friday before the rescheduled Spring Break. The kiddos will be off next week, but we are under a ‘stay at home’ order from the government. They don’t call them ‘lockdowns’ anymore. Probably sounds too negative, and morale is not exactly pie in the sky, these days.

Well, how about some photos with captions, to lift your spirits.

Parents of grade schoolers will get this one.

Born and raised on a farm near Brockville, Ontario, Mark Bierman's childhood consisted of chores, riding horses, snowmobile races across open fields, fishing trips to a local lake, and many other outdoor adventures. He was also an avid reader of both fiction and non. Transitioning towards adulthood also meant moving from the farm and into large urban areas that introduced this country boy to life in the big cities. After a short stint as a private investigator, he moved into the role of Correctional Officer, working at both Millhaven Institution and Kingston Penitentiary, until it closed.

  1. Great pictures, Mark. I especially love the first one. So happy they found that toddler alive and well. That truly is a miracle. Our area didn’t have any restrictions, and we had all the crazies decide to come down here and party like it was 1999. It was horrible. Both extremes are bad. :-/

  2. Ugh! We are all so tired of the lockdowns. Whatever they want to call them, that’s the word that fits. Hope it all changes soon. Love all of these and indeed what a miracle the child was found alive! I do believe in miracles!

  4. Loved the horse! And that account of the lost boy is incredible. I’ve heard of stories like this one of people missing from national parks in the US and of some children being found kilometres away without an explanation…

    1. Yes, the horse sports a warming blanket. There are four other horses, but this was the only one who braved the cold that day. The order is supposed to last a month, we’ll see. Stay safe down there and enjoy your weekend. 🙂

  5. Love the fashion addicted horse. Lol Looks like a monk, but where are the others. 😉 I hope you can enjoy the vacation, even the possibilities roaming the region are shortened. Interesting news about the term changing, form “lockdown” too … Here they are using again “lockdown”, with reinforcing adjectives such as “hard”, “harder”, “total”. 😉 We? Germans have a special relationship with such strong expressions. Lol
    Have a beautiful weekend, and please stay save, Mark! Best wishes, Michael
