Hmm. What to search for for this prompt. I suppose I’ll go to Flickr Commons and search “girl posed.”

I did and here’s a few photos I found.

Sepia Saturday

9 sept 2017

For this week’s prompt I found numerous photos of children playing. They live all over the world. It was a lot harder to find photos of girls playing. Most of the girls were depicted in drawings, not in photos.

History of Video Games for Boys

I never knew this. It does make sense. Funny how one mistake has such staying power.

Do you play computer games? While I don’t play the battle sort of games, I do get hooked on word games and such. Right now I have to stop myself from playing Muggles, a dominos game. I’ve also been keen on Sudoku and Scrabble.
