Well, since a few folks didn't like the wholesome caption that I posted on Easter, I figured I'd give the people what they want .. more feel good and clean TG captions! I'm nothing if not responsive to the masses that clamor to view my blog.
I had made this caption ummm, about 2 days before the Tsunami, and that is the main reason why I didn't post it before now, just in case anyone would get offended by the timing. The caption is very basic, and since it wasn't for someone specific, I decided to post it here. I saw the picture while viewing images for a caption that needed more than one person, and the idea of survival group meeting every year popped into my head. From there, the story came easily. I made it mostly to see if I could do it, without making it too maudlin, but still fall within the realms of a traditional TG caption.
DISCUSSION QUESTION: How many people is TOO many people in a TG caption, image wise and storyline wise? I, hopefully wisely, left the people as generic. I think if I had identified a few people in the pictures, I'd have made it WAY too unwieldy. The original plan was to make the story with the Scoutmaster as the center of the story (hence the orange border and text highlights) but it didn't work out the way I wanted.
