Nothing Left but Hope

This week's word, which is HOPE, has been given to us by Laura B. over at "What Fresh Hell is This?"  I had a little trouble with this word because it was difficult to display it in photo form.  But, I did manage to come up with a picture.  I went back to the old standby.

I HOPE I do not scratch on the break, but I probably will.  It's come to be expected from me anymore.   By the way, the pool table is my old standby and I haven't done one of these in a while.  Thanks for dropping in on me and playing a game of pool.
