HEADER CHALLENGE - 29-01-14
Our own choice

My choice of music this week is
SMILE - by - Nat King Cole


SMILE AWHILE - LOOKING BACK
by Mac

My Header

Mum In Law - Jessie. (who has vascular Dementia)
out for lunch with family and friends.
on ordering Dessert
We told Jessie that she wouldn't eat it all but Jessie still wanted it, so we asked for 5 more spoons,lol - Bless her.
When the dessert arrived - a photo of Jessie was well worth it - to see the look on her face.

My Theme is Smile Awhile - Looking Back.
A short history of the Headbangers and looking back on some of the past Headers though-out our time of posting.
Tom(Fishing Guy) and I had been changing our headers for a while for fun when Tom Wigley got interested and joined us, after a short time we decided to make it a  fun competiton with voting and awarding Shields, with TomW help.
Not wanting to spend hours -or even days visiting lots of folk and commenting - we decided to keep it small with only a few rules and members.

So - October 2009 THE HEADER CHALLENGE was born
and we adopted the name of THE HEADBANGERS.

Four years and three months later we are going strong, having fun and friendly competition.
Wednesday is posting day, voting as soon as ev1 posted and by Thursday results are posted and our shields shown on the side of our Blogs.

Delightful! Jessie's bright eyes and smile reminds me of my Mom before alzheimer's disease dull them. You have given us a nice scroll back through your headers. I remember many of them as I found photosfromthemindseye long before I joined headbangers.

I loved looking back at your past headers, and as the newest member of the Headbanger Team, THANK YOU for posting a little of its history!
