Like the Back of My Hand Challenge

When I read this post from Judy Dykstra-Brown this morning, which featured a picture of the back of a hand (hers? someone else’s?), I was inspired to take a picture of the back of my hand and post it.33E4D6E2-59B4-46F4-A59B-2B1FD4355F27And then I thought wouldn’t it be fun to challenge other bloggers to take a picture of the back of their own hands.

So take a picture of the back of your hand (or the front, or both) and create your own post featuring that picture. Go head, fellow bloggers, and show your hands.

Use the tag #myhand and link back to this post. Let’s see those hands of yours!

Weekly Prompts — People

For this week’s Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge, we are asked to look through our photo collection and post pictures of people.

Ever since the abomination, Donald Trump, became president, my wife and I have been attending rallies protesting all of the unconscionable things he and his sycophants in Congress have been doing to this country and the environment.

I’ve been impressed by the variety of people who have joined in these protests. All genders, races, nationalities, and ages have shown up.

So, for today’s photo prompt, below are some pictures of the people who we came across at those rallies.C0195C85-25AE-4D06-B41C-9A9BEF9BBB4694BB20F7-5789-440A-BC46-92684BEA1A8097FD9DCB-D727-4B70-978F-236C61C651C8290B594E-9746-4C9E-B74C-17C42D3FF648F01CEB7F-AFF9-4436-B42E-ABD5637B99E5B793967B-F295-433F-B2B9-EC0737FAF0A5

Weekly Prompts — Peaceful Coexistence

A773F869-DAAB-4780-B5BD-B96EEC33F8A8We have a dog and a cat in our home. They are not exactly the best of friends. In fact, they often get along like cats and dogs, if you know what I mean. Our 12 pound cat tends to terrorize our 70 pound dog.

However, they have learned, for the most part, to get along with minimal disturbance. I guess you might say that they are living in a state of peaceful coexistence.


Written for the Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge, where the prompt is “peaceful.”

I’m not sure that “peaceful coexistence” between a canine and a feline is what GC and SueW had in mind for this prompt. After all, they described peaceful as “free from disturbance; moments of tranquility and calm.”

But they did ask, “what does the word mean to you?” And on those occasions when our dog and cat are, in fact, getting along peacefully, we are, indeed, experiencing moments of tranquility.

No Words Wednesday

CEF6B46C-D06C-435D-B3C1-C84A772FADAE.jpegThis picture is part of a challenge called “No Words Wednesday” from Sazz.

The idea of this challenge is to post a picture of a famous monument of your city, preferably unedited and original in nature, without any caption or words, in order to let the picture speak on its own and so readers can imagine their own interesting story of that picture.

(I think I’m not even supposed to say what the picture is of or in what city it was taken. Any guesses? And is this too many words?)

Well I Have Never…Or Have I?

f67b4f1c-f210-48f5-93b0-f20fe5dc1e73Rory saw something on “The Ellen Show” and he decided to have a go with it on his blog. It begins with a simple statement that starts “Never have I ever….” The participants in the game respond with either “I Have” or “I Have Never.”

So Rory has posed a series of “Never have I ever” statements and has asked us to simply post one of those two responses, as applicable.

Here goes:

Never have I ever taken a sexy selfie.

I have. But, no, I am not going to share it with you.

Never have I ever kissed a celebrity.

I have never.

Never have I ever been kicked out of a bar.

I have. The Devonshire Bar & Grill.

Never have I ever been asked to leave a church.

I have. Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve. Not this past Christmas Eve. It was way, way back when I was in high school.

Never have I ever ridden a motorbike.

I have. I have owned and ridden three different motorcycles through the years. Do they count as “motorbikes”?

Never have I ever have a l farted in public.

I have. Both accidentally and intentionally.

Never have I ever have l lied to get a job.

I have never.

Never have I ever been nude skiing.

I refuse to answer this questions on the grounds that it’s self-incriminating.

Never have I ever eaten a fried witchitty grub.

I have never. At least not to the best of my knowledge, since I have no idea what a fried witchitty grub is.

Never have I ever peed in the shower.

I have. Every time I take a shower.
