JP the Wide-eyed Wanderer has got my number and nominated me for this challenge today. Thank you and hello!
This is the selected picture

Sally and Petra sat on the sleepers and stared down the tracks.
They did this quite often actually, sometimes for hours.
Petra had all the patience in the world and was content to sit.
Sally on the other hand was a bundle of nerves, but had her moments.
It was a beautiful evening.
Neither had any place to be or go, and the tracks had been abandoned months ago so there was no risk of them getting injured by a train.
Mind you, both would feel the vibration way before its arrival, so they just sat and in this instance, watched the sunset.
Sally’s tummy rumbled and Petra gave her a withering look.
‘OK.’ she said. ‘You win. I’ll go and fetch your ball!’
Sally’s tail wagged enthusiastically.
Now I’ve got to tag three more bloggers and provide another picture.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes!
In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too.
On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts.
From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives.
We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
Good one Di, loved the twist at the end.
Hi Michael. I nominated you for an earlier one so I hope it reached you OK.
Hmm…I don’t recall Di….sorry I must have missed it….
it’s linked here to your Alice-Mary post
hope you have the time to join in.
Ok I see it now….sorry I didn’t see it before….Alice-Mary has been keeping me busy, plus its been very hot here this past week and not letting up, so staying cool has been important….I’ll see what I can do.
No pressure Michael. These are proving quite popular at the moment and I’m enjoying myself!
Glad you liked it. Ours GSD would just sit there as if to say ‘You threw it, you fetch it!’
Awesome, thanks for playing along.
Thanks for including me!
Good story. Love the prompt you gave.
It’s rather interesting…………………..
Nice story. Love the picture you gave to your nominees – a time portal. Awesome!
thank you. No takers on that one yet.
I’m gonna’ try a story with that and combine that story with an idea I got from a picture I gave to my nominees for “Tell the Story” challenge to make it one story.
How lovely! Pls link me in so that I don’t miss it!

Great response Jim. Thanks for joining in.
There is nothing like the friendship that you share with a dog.
It’s a great picture, is it not?
My GSD wouldn’t ‘fetch’., sort of a you threw it, you fetch it attitude. Now Maggie was different, she’d pinch another dog’s thrown ball and not give it back!
Oooh… Love this. My kind of “chain” letter 😉
I accept your challenge!
Great stuff Dale. Looking forward to reading your post!
So not my “genre” but that’s what a challenge is, right?
ha! Just have fun!
Oh, I will!
No limits, apparently?
As far as I know.
