An Almost X-rated post…

My poor Primroses are so confused…

 

All I can think of is the old Woody Allen movie “Everything you Always Wanted to Know about Sex”, where Woody, standing at the front of the line of about to “escape” sperm, shouts a warning to all the others,

“Go back, go back! It’s just a hand job!”  Or something like that.

It’s late November and 30 degrees here!!!!

“Go back, go back, my Sweet Primroses!! It’s a Weather TRICK!! It’s not even close to Spring yet!!!”

 

Lens-Artists Weekly Photo Challenge-10/28/18 theme- Just for FUN!

OK so I have a lot of photo shoots with a strange group of “models”.

And it is definitely when I have the most FUN!!!

Once upon a time, there was a tiny village and they fell in love with a monster who came to visit.

The Village Dogs just loved this visitor and knew that even though she LOOKED terrifying, she wasn’t! Maybe it was the way she took care of her monster sister?

And the sister had a friend, nick-named Badfish, but not because he was bad. He was just “BAD”.

The Monster stayed for the holidays and helped decorate the tall parts of the tree the tiny villagers couldn’t reach.

Then the village teenagers, a non-violent gang, invited the monster’s whole family to join in the annual Cow Tipping Contest! What an Honor!

The Monsters didn’t quite get the “tipping” part but definitely enjoyed climbing the cow!

Next, there was the annual competition to see who could climb the tallest Blue Building, and the Monsters were a huge hit!! Their audience raved about it!

The Monsters loved their new Village but some of the town’s people were upset by one of their bad habits!

The End

(although maybe not. One of those giant turds appears to be an EGG!!!)

SongLyricSunday 10/21/18 Theme (Sorry, it’s lost on me…)

I know I can’t be the first person to post this when I could not think of a good song for the week’s theme….can I???

Kind of a fun version of the song, though a lousy video.

You Can Go Your Own Way by Fleetwood Mac
Lyrics
Loving you
Isn’t the right thing to do
How can I ever change things
That I feel
If I could
Maybe I’d give you my world
How can I
When you won’t take it from me
You can go your own way
Go your own way
You can call it
Another lonely day
You can go your own way
Go your own way
Tell me why
Everything turned around
Packing up
Shacking up is all you want to do
If I could
Baby I’d give you my world
Open up
Everything’s waiting for you
You can go your own way
Go your own way
You can call it
Another lonely day
You can go your own way
Go your own way
You can go your own way
Go your own way
You can call it
Another lonely day
Another lonely day
You can go your own way
Go your own way
You can call it
Another lonely day
You can go your own way
You can call it
Another lonely day
You can go your own way

A Photo a Week: Whimsical 10/13/18

I love Nancy Merrill’s photography. If you have never visited her site, she’s quite talented.

https://www.nancymerrillphotography.org/

Of course, I adore her subject matter.

She has been sponsoring this Photo a Week challenge and I am inspired by her chosen topics. This week it is “Whimsical”.

My minds reels, but here are a few of mine I thought fit the challenge. (Of course, I may be mixing up the terms Whimsical and Smart Ass…)

October Photo a Day Challenge

https://citysonnet.wordpress.com/2018/10/01/october-photo-a-day-challenge/

Ooh, ohh, I just found another photo challenge although I am having a hard time keeping all these new challenges straight.

Here are the topics I missed so far:

  1. Welcome October
  2.  Layers
  3. Start with O
  4. Numbers
  5. Birds
  6. Inspired by poem
  7. Dog

Wonder how many of these I can catch up on…hmmm.

1.) Welcome October

I both love and feel sad when I see the last few apples for the year. This season, from our Apple Cider pressing parties, we had about 50 gallons!

2.) Layers

One winter we took my grandsons down to Hood Canal during the Holidays. It was well below freezing but there was no snow. There was a house decorated with layers and layers of water sprayed on the trees which then froze.

3.) Start with O.

What can I say. I always start with “OH!” when the Blue Angels fly over my house!

4.) Numbers

You’d think I would be slowed in my Cobalt Collecting obsession by the numbers of pieces I have….but NO!

5.) Birds

My favorite thing to photograph…well, one of my favorites.

6.) Inspired by poem

7.) Dog

Our friend Marc’s sweet Akita, Razor, and our dog “nephew” (my sister’s dog) Ola, who is even sweeter!

Well, that wore me out but now I am caught up…except for that poetry thingy.
