Pictures can say a lot. Sometimes they can even tell whole stories, without a single word! As part of The Tell Us Your Story Project, today I want to share three interesting pictures that don't really need a written explanation. I'll try to keep my descriptions short and let the pictures do the talking.
Man's Best Friend
This is Chad Waligura and his loyal companion, Tabby. They enjoy duck hunting in Texas and Chad believes that this picture captures his "spirit as an outdoorsman."
A Really Cool Situation
Patrick Nicholas learned how to skydive without the use of his legs. Here's a jump he did in Palatka, FL. He says "Life with always be bumpy, but you have to ask yourself how far you're willing to go and then just roll with it!"
For those of you who don't recognize the man in the barber's chair, that's Mike Sorrentino (aka "The Situation"), who starred in MTV's reality show hit The Jersey Shore.
And Una Taufa cuts his hair. Una commented that he "only feels truly balanced when he's behind his barber's chair." And added, "If Mike only knew what happens when a C4/C5 incomplete walking quadriplegic does when he has a muscle spasm...:)."
I bet I could write a thousand more words, but I think these pictures say it all!
