We'll Take the Pink Bathtub
Today I'm flying home from our annual family reunion in Kentucky. Being with my mom (going on 94) and my three sisters, plus extended family, is so much fun. Every year we try to come up with some different way to take the Mom/Daughters photo. Last year it was the toilets. Not sure we'll ever top that one.
Then my neice and her husband told us they were redoing their old bathroom--which was pink. They'd already torn everything out, including the pink bathtub. Said bathtub was carted to the ReStore in Nicholasville, a Habitat for Humanity home thrift store. So we decided to troop over to the store and see if they'd allow us to take some pictures in the bathtub.
I showed up with a book for the gal behind the counter. She's a suspense reader, so she was happy. "Go right ahead," she told us. We promised her we'd put everything back when we were done. And we proceeded to set up our photos, despite any strange looks from other shoppers. Of course each shot took some time to set up. Fortunately Mom is spry at 93, and with some help was able to get in and out of the small tub. So, without further ado, I present the sequence of set-up and final shots. You can see we had a little laughter along the way.
