Photo Challenge - January

The theme of this month's photo challenge coordinated by P.J. over at a 'lilhoohaa is "new". Now I wasn't able to participate in the last couple of challenges so I'm happy to be back for the first one of the New Year.

Speaking of New Year I spent the first couple of weeks of January in Panama. While the so-called Polar Vortex roared to record low temperatures at home, I spent my days on the beach, in the ocean and playing golf in sunny 90F temperatures.

It's all a distant memory now, save the photos…

Lovely photos! Even though we haven't had any real winter weather here, I was still jealous of your holiday. You made sure of that, on Facebook ;)

Oh, yes I did. And I look at today's challenge as another opportunity to do so again!

Ohhhhhhhhhh, look at that beautiful green golf course! You lucky duck!

I'm happy someone got to escape the Polar Vortex! Due to some unforeseen circumstances, we had to cancel our winter vacay to Mexico. :-( Thanks for showing some of your pics to help me warm up!

It's only a 9 hole course but it's gorgeous and fun to play.

Believe me, I wish I was back there right now.

Ah, what gorgeous photos. Let's all go there tomorrow!

I'm in, for sure.
The golf club shot made me smile a LOT. I love the shot... and for a golfer, I bet that was heaven. The other one that especially caught my eye was the first one.. like a burst of amazing sunshine behind the clouds!

It was heaven, indeed, Katherine and we go here every year. 90F, sun every day, steps from the ocean - you can't argue with that.

Great pics, Noname. I wouldn't have minded starting off my New Year like that. As you know, January was nothing but suffering as far as the temps were concerned.

The temperature here was absolutely depressing. But I didn't feel too bad sitting on a 90F beach sipping a Corona or two, Mike.

I like the shots. My favorite is the golf course shot however. Rich green grass, with an interesting perspective showing the clubs that let you know where you are if you confused without them.

beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!

Thanks, Meleah. It was a great place to be while everyone else was caught in the grips of the Polar Vortex.

Lovely...and warm
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, the warm part is what attracted me.

What a wonderful "new" year start you had!

Oh, absolutely. We certainly started off on the right foot.

The Worst Christmas Present Ever

My pals over at Tribal Blogs are holding their first Blog Carnival today and the subject is the worst Christmas present ever. Remember Ralphie in the movie A Christmas Story ? His, as my readers point out, Aunt Clara sent him a bunny costume. Yeah, it sure sucked to be him. Hey sometimes Christmas doesn't work out for some of us. Look at my grandsons last Christmas. Things went from this... ...to this... Heh, heh. That's one picture my daughter doesn't want to share too widely. So keep quiet about it, okay? When I was a kid, Christmas was such a special time. The snow outside, the tree, the lights, the food, visiting relatives and neighbours. And of course the presents. My own kids loved Christmas too and would pore through the Sears Wish Book Catalogue as soon as it arrived in the mail, dog-earing pages upon pages of pictures of gifts they wanted for Christmas. And they were pretty lucky. They usually got most of what they asked for. Today the grandkids are lucki

Sometimes You're the Bug...

I don't know who first came up with it but it's a marvellous saying. Sometimes you're the windshield, sometimes you're the bug. It's like sometimes you win, sometimes you lose...but far more descriptive. I mean have you ever had it happen to you? You're driving along as the sun's just gone down. You turn on your lights in the dusk and the bugs just seem to flock to your windshield, drawn as if by a magnet. Now, of course, you're faced with a choice. Do you just leave them be or do you flip on the windshield wipers and shoot windshield wiper fluid at your windshield. If it's ever happened to you, you know this is a no-win situation. Trying to clean them off usually makes it worse. You better hope you find a gas station...or a guy at the side of the road who wants a dollar...with a squeegee. That's the only way. And, of course, the bug never wins. It's always the windshield that comes out on top. When I was a kid, though, riding my bik
