As those of you who follow me on Facebook may know, my brother Steve died on Saturday, September 6th. I was already seriously considering posting one last Challenge to close out the meme; then the terrible news came, which sent me across the country to Cleveland and then to Syracuse. I didn't come back here to the RRPC partly because I was out of town, and partly because I wasn't sure anyone still cared whether there was ever another Round Robin Photo Challenge.
I've had the topic planned for a while, if I ever needed to designate a "last" Challenge. The topic for Saturday, October 11th is:
Maybe there is a loved one you are saying goodbye to, whether it is because they died or for a happier reason, such as going off to college or moving out of state. Maybe you're saying goodbye to an old house, a business that's closing, a tv show going off the air, a job you're quitting, summer weather... well, you get the idea.
This last time, I'm going to extend the posting period. The Challenge date is Saturday, October 11th, 2014. But you are welcome to post your "Goodbye" photos any time between October 11th and October 18th.
If you plan to participate, please post your name and a link to your blog or other social media site in the comments below. Then COME BACK and post to let us know when your photos are up, so we can take a look!
Over 100 different people have posted to the Round Robin Photo Challenges over the past decade, and Carly and I appreciate every one of you. I hope at least a few of you will say Goodbye with us here, one last time. Thanks.
