IS IT BROKEN? CAN IT BE FIXED?
Broken—something broken—could be your heart, your relationship, your inability to complete your bucket list or—heaven forbid—something literally broken.
And if it’s broken, can it be fixed?
The WordPress photo prompt for May 22, 2015 is to capture something broken—which I choose to take literally, not wanting to get into broken hearts and relationships.
Almost 50 years ago, when my husband Monte and I married, we purchased a set of good dishes. Through the years we used these for holiday dinners and special occasions. And through the years we never broke one item of this set. Until…a special family friend, who shall remain nameless to protect her identity…was doing dishes after a family meal. It was 2009 when she broke the first piece of my china, a dinner plate. Ever since then I threaten that that dish will be hers when she dines at our house on special occasions.
43 years and never a broken piece of china—until now:
This broken railroad crossing sign (leaning against a broken fence) is located on a piece of property that was once the farm of Michael and Elizabeth Rugh in Blacklick Township, Indiana County, Pennsylvania. I don’t know the date of the sign. If anyone can identify the sigh, please let me know in the comment box at the end of this post. Thanks!
