Three Days, Three Quotes #2

While I don’t normally take on nominated challenges, I’ve seen this one floating around for a few weeks and was intrigues.  So, I was nominated by The Haunted Wordsmith to add my three days three quotes post to the mix.  Thanks for the nomination!

The rules are:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Post a quote for three consecutive days.
  3. Nominate three bloggers each day.

And now, for today’s quote.

“I do not like green eggs and ham.

I do not like them, Sam-I-am”  Dr. Seuss

The eternal struggle.

I once performed Green Eggs and Ham with a friend.  I played bass, he played something else…drums?  I don’t remember now.  He is a pianist, but I am pretty sure he was not playing piano.  Anyway, we recited Green Eggs and Ham while beatnik jamming.  For a concert.  It was a hoot!

“So long and thanks for all the fish.”   Douglas Adams.

Why?  Why not??  I once used this quote to thank everyone I worked with when I was leaving my job.  Some people got it… 🙂

Now, I won’t nominate anyone specifically (already breaking the rules, as you knew I would), but if you would like to join in, please do!!  I hope I remember to post #2 tomorrow…

Oh, it’s Caturday!! Well, it is in my bubble

A response in not as much avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing prompt https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/bubble/

I was in a bit of a bubble yesterday.  I had my photography class field trip into Chinatown and while I took tons of photos, I completely forgot to finish posting Caturday.  These guys are not amused…

A to Z Challenge: U is for Ugly (#AtoZChallenge)

Welcome to my April 2018 Great and Powerful Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

Today, U is for Ugly

Now, let’s face it.  “Ugly” is definitely in the eye of the beholder.  I should note that I had trouble finding images to represent “ugly” because I don’t happen to think any of the things I am going to  show you today are actually ugly (some may be more pedestrian than ugly), but some of you may disagree.  That is your prerogative, even though you are wrong.  🙂

A to Z Challenge: R is for Rusty (#AtoZChallenge)

Welcome to my April 2018 Great and Powerful Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

Today, R is for Rusty – what else?

I love rusty things.  And they fit perfectly with the ideals of wabi sabi.  And it looks great in macro shots!

These first images are from the Medalta factory.  There was LOTS of rust there to fulfill my rusty habit.

And now, here are some rusty things around our house and yard.

A to Z Challenge: K is for Kittens (uncooperative) (#AtoZChallenge)

Welcome to my April 2018 Great and Powerful Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

Today, K is for Kittens – the ones being uncoorperative.

If you follow my blog, you know that occasionally I take pictures of our kittens.  Sometimes, however, they are not the most cooperative subjects and pictures turn out not quite how I imagined them.  Doesn’t stop me from posting them though 🙂

Here, as an additional Kitten Thursday post, are some past uncooperative kitten photos for you!

A to Z Challenge: G is for Garbage (#AtoZChallenge)

Welcome to my April 2018 Great and Powerful Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

Today, G is for Garbage. 

Ok.  To be clear, I don’t normally go around taking pictures of people’s garbage.  Although, now that I think of it, that could be kind of interesting.  Or gross.  Depends on how you look at it.  But things that have been tossed aside and are considered garbage can make for interesting pictures.   As, strangely enough, can garbage cans.  Check it out!

A to Z Challenge: F is for Flowers (dead ones) (#AtoZChallenge)

Welcome to my April 2018 Great and Powerful Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

Today, F is for Flowers (the dead ones, that is). 

I love taking pictures of dead flowers.  As lovely as flowers look while they are alive, there is something really intriguing about them as they wither and die.

Here is a short presentation of dead flowers.
