Great photos. The first one would have been good for Blue Monday.

That was fun! I like the picture of the nuns a lot!
That's what we cats always say: Keep life simple! Maybe a backpack is what humans need to do that.

I guess they leave the Nuns hands free to pray!

Terrific capture of the Nuns and their backpacks. I'll bet you saw every type of backpack at the Olympics.

Oh, I love the Nuns with their backpacks! What a great post for the B Day! And I, too, bet you saw every imaginable backpack at the Olympics!! Enjoy your week!

That picture of the nuns and their backpacks is just precious.

There is not a child in school that doesn't have one. We didn't even know what a packback was, unless you were going camping for hiking... Not now!

Great shot! Backpacks are everywhere, to be sure!

Fabulous photo of the nuns wearing backpacks. Did they carry purses before backpacks became ubiquitous? I am not that familiar with nuns. I wonder what they carry in their backpacks.

That first photo almost made me laugh! It's just seems so "wrong!" But I can certainly relate to the second photo! Hope you're having a great week! :D
