Photo Challenge - June

Ol' P.J. tested our creative abilities in June with the prompt "vehicles". Nevertheless I think I've risen to the challenge (pun intended) with this collection of photos.


This is Big Red, used every week to deal with our acre of grass (the kind you cut).




I took this shot coming off the local Highway 50 at the Des Allumitieres exit. Can you tell it's rush hour?




This little vehicle carts my son and I around the golf course every week. It was a great day for a round last Thursday.




This old relic is at the entrance to the Gatineau Golf Course. There were three of us playing last week. I though they might rent us the truck so we could travel the 18 holes together.




The Beast. It's a 2006 Mitsubishi Outlander. Eight years old and it still runs like a charm.


Drive on over to P.J.'s blog where you can discover what the rest of this month's participants came up with.

LOL! The Beast?! I love it! Entrepreneur would prefer the vehicle of the golf cart variety.

I had my eye peeled, all month for a motorised lawn mower, but didn't see one!

Yea for Big Red! Makes me think of Big Red soda pop and then Bubble Gum Ice Cream. Wait. I never liked that stuff and pouring it over vanilla ice cream is pretty darn gross if you ask me. Oh, you didn't? Sigh.

Anyway, nice photos. Hooray for purring Beast!

Love the photos. My favorite is the golf cart! I haven't played in a while, I think I need to.

You just reminded me that I had a side mirror shot I meant to include in my group. I love the old truck.

Enjoyed the photos and the commentary...especially the puns! Our youngest is a big fan of puns. I especially like how you used one vehicle's side mirror to photograph a whole bunch more vehicles...nice layering. :-)

I enjoy driving them both. For different reasons of course.

I keep reading that eye peeled reference and can't help but think of your recent cataract surgery.

Just sold Big Red. We moved to a much smaller house and property and didn't need it anymore. A sad day. We had to for 14 years.

Golf has to be my favourite outdoor pastime.

Wish I could have gotten a better pic of the truck. I took it from my car but in a hurry because there was another car behind me.

Hot time, summer in the city, back of my neck getting dirt and gritty.

Those who know me well think "puns" is my middle name.

Ha ha! I still have the other eye waiting to be done. Not sure if it's a blessing living near the best eye hospital in the country. People come from all over (even the continent) for treatment here, making the waiting list very long - 16 weeks, for non urgent cataracts.
nonamedufus said…
Wow that's pretty impressive. I don't know about you but I really noticed a difference after having the first eye done. I would close that eye then the other and simply be amazed.
babs (beetle) said…
Yes! I still do it sometimes - Just to make sure it's still the same!

I like the crooked look of the lawnmower. Though if I tilt my head, it's not so crooked. Just saying.

And shouldn't you be trading in for the golf cart to be the No. 1 vehicle at all times by now? :D

Unfortunately I'm only golfing about once a week. Have to get out more.

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …
