This week's prompt is "Broken Bones & Other Accidents." I immediately thought of an accident I had when I was about seven years old. And, I'm excited that I have a photo of my resulting injury... because of the scans I just did!

Here's me with the scratch on my forehead! I guess it's road rash. This injury took a long time to heal. In fact, it finally healed... only to show up again in the summer looking like a scar! But, after that summer, it finally went away for good.
I find this photo kind of humorous. I've cropped a Polaroid photo to just show myself and the kitten I'm holding. It's Christmas and we are at my cousin's house. He lived in the country and always had a bunch of 'wild' cats and kittens running around. We could rarely even catch them; but we sure tried!
I also can't believe what a mess my hair is... and my outfit is pretty hideous. Out of four people in the photo (my sister, brother, & cousin), my daughter couldn't pick me out; she thought I was a boy! Well, I guess we'd been playing hard!
I also enjoy seeing the elf hanging on the tree in the background. My mother and my aunt both put these on our trees.
Do we share common ancestors? I'd love to talk! Please write me at firstname.lastname@example.org
