Franklin & Franklin
Sorry I did not participate in last week's E is for ABC Wednesday, but Rhett had a project due that consumed most of our time. I had planned on using recent fotos of Edgar, my father and Everett better known as Rhett, my son for that post. Rhett received a 100 A+ written on the front of his poster project which made me mad after all our hard work that we put into it. My being an artist,I felt like it was a piece of art that had been written on. Almost like grafitti. Why couldn't his teacher write it on the back? My husband asked what were we going to do with it anyway? Frame it? Oh, well, Frankly my dear... Nah. Just kidding. I love to say that line whenever possible and it fits!
So I knew I was going to use the same fotos of Edgar and Everett only as Franklin and Franklin. Rhett is after all named after my father, his grandfather. Franklin and Franklin sounds like a law firm, doesn't it? Franklin is both their middle names. My father goes by Frank , but Rhett is just a nickname I wanted. He is and always will be Rhett to me. I rarely use his full name even when he is in trouble.
Picky me would have preferred my father's foto come first then Rhett's foto, but I uploaded them in the order in which they were taken this year. Rhett's foto was taken on my birthday in January. He was reading me a poem he wrote for me. I like this foto because it almost looks like a drawing or painting to me. My father Frank's foto was taken on his eighty-fourth birthday earlier this month of February. I liked the background as well as the golden glow of them both.
