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.
nonamedufus said…
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.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
