JOURNALING:
Wild Dogs
There is a crazy story in my family's lore that one of our distant relatives was carried off by a Mabeco, or African Wild Dog, when that branch of the family was living in Zimbabwe. It used to come up every Thanksgiving when my big extended family would gather from far-flung parts of the world to celebrate the holiday at Grandma Historias' Pennsylvania farm. The basic story was this boy was attacked while sitting on an old motorbike made by a company called "Mabeco" (allegedly Portuguese for "wild dog.") He was having his picture taken by his father, or uncle, or SOME other relative when a pack of dogs suddenly appeared and dragged the poor child off into the savanna. One version of the story has a neighbor, long suspected of being a warlock, conjuring the dog pack to exact vengeance for some perceived slight. No one really believed the story, but it DID keep some of the younger cousins wide-eyed and on the edges of their seats!
Then, one day, in the old wine cellar, one of those cousins found this old torn photo.
Hmmmm.

I always love reading your little stories about these vintage photos - so imaginative. LOVE how you've torn the photo and added the "wild dog" - fabulous job so it looks like he's always been there in the BG.
 
OHH,that sounds scary ! Fancy that... I like the build up to finding the photo. Maybe the warlock wanted the bike, and got the spell mixed up .Thank you for taking part in the challenge with your super story
