Weekly Words Challenge 17!

The words for this week were Strange and Black.

How did you interpret them?

Strange Art

His name is Spike. He's got marbles for balls.

Strange Hill

We later determined it was a gigantic underground septic tank. Blech.

Strange Transportation

I'm guessing it's grounded until the floods come.

Strange and Black

Any guesses? It's part of a Bowflex. Hoop found a cheap used one on Sunday night and couldn't pass up the bargain. I rode the hour home with a huge black bar in my face

(Random Pictures)

Window Flowers

Fallen Leaves

The words for next week are:


If you haven't joined the fun, go
here for details.

Hope spike doesn't get harpooned for his balls! lol!

The artist actually gave him balls? Oh kay.

A big black bar in the face is never fun but think about the results when Hoop is all buff and pumped up.

Good thoughts, think good thoughts!

Great pics!

I think Spike is cool. And I'm glad he has balls. It's a guy thing I guess. ;-)

I came across a bowflex for a great price once. When I finally decided I should get it I went back the next day and it was gone already. Gotta snatch those up when you get the chance.

Great pics, as usual!

Is Spike yours? I love him!!

Reminds me of this silver metal pig that I picked up over the holidays with some 'mad money' that Dave's father gave us. I couldn't resist him. I'm thinking about blogging about him, that's how much I love him. He reminds me of Spike. LOL!

At 08 January, 2008, Blogger Chris said...

Using the bowflex during your commute would be very efficient. ;)

Marbles for balls? Did ya heft 'em to see? :) Great photos. I will have to check back for the dress, it was an odd day today and I missed it. Mine are up :)

Last time you had asked for suggestions for themes. How about opposites Love/hate Big/Small Up/Down, that sort of thing.

Mine are up. Just barely. Man, talk about dedication! ;P

I'm up, but I cheated this time and used old photos :( Just no energy to think of something this time.

Marble balls. Does that trump tits of steel? Great pics! That is really strange transportation.

My pictures are up. Or, I should say our pictures are up. My son is guest blogging for the challenge.

Finding Noah's ark & a cool-looking dunghill...you could be the real life Lara Croft! Love the pic of the orchids.

That hill is a strange one and the same time it is simple.

Love the colours in the fallen leaves.

Your strange pictures are very fun. I should be more observant of the world around me. I am guessing strangeness abounds.
