Share Your World – July 23, 2018

And now for this week’s Share Your World (

In regards to puzzle what’s your choice: jigsaw, crossword, word search, mazes, logic or numeric puzzles, something else, or nothing?

I don’t have a lot of patience for puzzles – if I can’t get them, I look up the answers at the back of the book.  Yes, I do.  They give us the answers for a reason!

List at least five favorite treats and it doesn’t necessarily have to be food.

Bacon is my favourite treat.  Bacon and potato chips are my two…two favourite treats.  Bacon and potato chips…and staying in my pajamas all day are my three favourite treats.  Bacon, potato chips, pjs…and a cold glass of beer on a hot day are my four…four favourite treats.  And an almost fanatical devotion to the pope.  Sorry, I mean watching Monty Python…

What is your favorite type of dog? (can be anything from a specific breed, a stuffed animal or character in a movie)


What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?

I appreciated another wonderful week off of work, spending time with my parents and my Aunt from Texas, walking, taking pictures, and generally trying not to think about going back to work in a couple of weeks…sigh…


Cee’s Odd Ball Challenge, July 22, 2018

And now, for this week’s Cee’s Odd Ball Challenge (

“Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge (COB) is all about those great photos that you take which really don’t seem to fit into a common category.  We’ve all taken them and like them, because we just can’t hit delete and get rid of them.”

I still don’t know why there are stairs here…but it was hot enough today, I kind of wanted to take a walk down them!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Transportation

From Jenn at Traveling at Wits End (, another weekly photography challenge for me to try!

“This week, the theme is to: Photograph transportation.  Planes, trains & automobiles – not to mention boats, bikes, buses, skateboards, trollies, and even hot air balloons. We’re surrounded by modes of transportation! Get your cameras ready.  Whatever your favorite mode of transportation, go out this week and photograph all those vehicles that get us from point A to point B.”

There are many ways to get from point A to point B – here are a few I’ve seen in the past couple of weeks!

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Relax

To fill the void of the Word Press weekly photo prompt, we have the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.  The theme for this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge is Relax (  Show us your favorite “time to relax” activity, place, or moment. It can be in any season, month, week, or day.

A place to relax…

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Wind

Here is Dutch Goes the Photo’s ( Tuesday photo Challenge.  This week’s topic is:   Wind  (

“Looking for a follow up to last week’s theme, I was poking around and checking whether or not I had used the theme before.  I came across a tag that I’d used, but not for a TPC theme: Wind!  One thing that I like about this theme is that it can be taken into multiple directions!  It can be the Wind that provides a gentle breeze on a hot Summer’s day, or the road that Winds its way to your door.  And there are other possibilities that your creative interpretations can use this week!  Have fun with this one and share your ideas!  I know that I look forward to your cool ideas and I’m sure everyone else will be just as eager to see your posts!”


RagTag Daily Prompt 55: Travel

A response in starting over with a new daily avoidance (or non-avoidance, as the case may be), here with the Ragtag Daily Prompt (, today is Travel.

A lot of folks traveling today!  Oh, and I’m on a black and white kick today…
