Cool pictures. I did not play this week, but hopefully I will get my act together and play next time.

W.E.,

Ginger Jam should be Hoop's R&B singer name.

What a fun festival. I love kilts. My hubby has one that he wears for me every now and then. ;)

And, that vending machine... gross, and really sort of sad.

My submissions are up on my blog:

I posted mine!

Did you go to some Highlands Games festival or something? I want to go! I can't wait for the annual renaissance festival to come to town.

Maybe that was TMI.

 
At 26 February, 2008, Blogger Chris said...

That sign is too funny!

That vending machine is really too fucked up for words.

 
At 26 February, 2008, Blogger Doc said...

Sweet Highland(er) Games !!!!

Great pics Tink!

 
At 26 February, 2008, Blogger Jay said...

Highland games are so much fun.

I love the "no shoes, no kilt, no service" sign.

And the pic of the targets is really great!

 
At 26 February, 2008, Blogger g-man said...

Excellent as usual Tink. Looks like a lot of fun to be had, makes me want to dance a jig. :)

Mine are up.

 
At 26 February, 2008, Blogger Jay said...

Peeeee Esssssssss: I can't believe they actually have weight loss pills vending machines. No. Way.

 
At 26 February, 2008, Blogger Knight said...

I love the picture of the hatchets in the stump.
Bought my first Etsy item yesterday. I can tell this is going to be a problem.

 
At 26 February, 2008, Blogger gr said...

I've got a metal and wood pic to contribute.
I wonder what that little kid was throwing his axe at.....

Tink - bless you for being the first one to comment on my very first WWC post - and thanks for the kind words. This is such a fun game! If anyone else wants to check out my choices, I'd love for you to stop by. I'm already thinking of things for "stone" and "glass" next week...
And, your pics are great! I love all things Scottish, and a man in a kilt is a beautiful thing. I had a Scottish wedding 4 years ago - all the guys wore kilts. Sexy and lots of fun - especially when the groom's kilt fell off in the CHURCH parking lot after the reception! I wasn't there to see, drat it, because I've always had rotten timing that way - but I'm told by a reliable source that much merriment ensued...though sadly, nobody had a camera.

I dig that black and white with the chick dancing in color.

Do women wear anything under their kilts?

Cool pix, love the dancing onces. We had woodcutters contests like that where I went to school.

mine is at wood and metal

 
At 26 February, 2008, Blogger Ginni Dee said...

Mine are up!

Yours rock this week. Love those kilts! Hubba hubba!

 
At 26 February, 2008, Blogger Farmer*swife said...

I'm posted! Nice pics! Look's like y'all had a really fun weekend! (Beer and sauerkraut?)

 
At 26 February, 2008, Blogger The Mama Bear said...

I love the first picture...my first WWC is up and as promised no snow.
Looks like a great place to go.
I love a man in a kilt.

 
At 26 February, 2008, Blogger Newt said...

Wow, very nice. As always. Mine are up - on time! Who'd have thunk

 
At 26 February, 2008, Blogger mamatulip said...

WOAH.

There are weight loss vending machines?

*mindboggles*

 
At 26 February, 2008, Blogger No More Empty Fortune Cookies said...

Great Photos! It always looks like such fun that I decided to join in... I posted my first WWC this week... come on over and check em out :)

 
At 26 February, 2008, Anonymous Daisy said...

Why, Tink! It's almost like being there! (Except for the itchy feel of that wool on skin...)

I finally got my act together (well, sort of...) Pics posted at

At 26 February, 2008, Blogger Maggie said...

OMG that kid was weilding an axe. That looks like a scary scary place.

 
At 26 February, 2008, Anonymous kcinnova said...

Home again, home again, jiggedy-jig!
I'm liking the ax and stump pic.

Mine are up, too.
Thanks for the comments!

 
At 26 February, 2008, Blogger meno said...

Ginger Jam.

Oh the filthy things that run through my brain with the slighest, or no, provocation.

 
At 26 February, 2008, Blogger Peggy said...

I didnae ken you were into hi'lan games! (I didn't know you were into highland games)

In the summer over here we can't move for folks tossing cabers about.

 
At 26 February, 2008, Blogger Aunt Jackie said...

I LOVVE "No Shoes No Kilt No Service" that's so cute!!! Never fails, fantastic entries... Mine are up. Another slideshow. Yay!

 
At 26 February, 2008, Blogger Michelle said...

This would be my first submission. Here goes http://michellesphotosandmore.blogspot.com/2008/02/weekly-words-challenge-24.html

 
At 26 February, 2008, Blogger Christy said...

Wow, is it even legal to seel them in a vending machine. Way to promote eating disorders. Man oh man.

 
At 26 February, 2008, Blogger Reb said...

Great photos Tink. Love the highland games, did you have some hagis?

 
At 26 February, 2008, Blogger R.E.H. said...

Fantastic pictures this week, Tink - as if you ever fail to impress me.

Love the sign - hilarious. The axe in the wood pic was really creative. The dancing chicks (especially the one in B/W and her in color) were awesome.

But... a vending machine for weight loss pills? Isn't that just taking it too friggin' far?

Oh, and of course - mine are up!

 
At 26 February, 2008, Blogger LL said...

Where's the picture of you in your Scottish garb? After all... if it's not Scottish, IT'S CRAP!!!

 
At 26 February, 2008, Anonymous susan said...

I can't help but wonder about those people behind the archery range. Do they really think that chain link fence will protect them from stay arrows?

 
At 26 February, 2008, Blogger Backpacker momma said...

LOVE the metal and wood combined pic, I tried to think of how to do that too, nice job!

 
At 26 February, 2008, Blogger Backpacker momma said...

Oh, and mine are up. Duh.

 
At 26 February, 2008, Blogger Jay Cam said...

what's with that kid throwing an axe? i bet his worst teacher is tied to the target...
: )

wood? metal?
hm...

my computer is made out of wood. should i post that?
just kidding! i'm not that old fashioned!

 
At 26 February, 2008, Blogger Karen said...

Nice photos. Looks like you fun at the kilt-wearing-tomahawk-throwing festivities. I want ginger jam now.

 
At 26 February, 2008, Blogger Jay said...

Oooh, bonus points for metal AND wood!

 
At 27 February, 2008, Blogger unsigned said...

The vending machine idea is stupid. Fat people don't leave the house. They should have a delivery service instead. That way they can get the pills without getting off of the couch. Know your consumer...

 
At 27 February, 2008, Blogger janet said...

there is no excuse for that vending machine.

love the festival shots, especially the combo color/bw.

yay.

 
At 27 February, 2008, Blogger DebbieDoesLife said...

I love me some Papa Bear in a kilt!

 
At 27 February, 2008, Blogger Ben O. said...

I feel like I'm missing out on something really fun.

Great shots.

Flickr is pretty cool indeed.

that vending machine makes me ill.

 
At 27 February, 2008, Blogger Foo said...

I had a really clever comment about the digital camera/ipod vending machine I saw when I was at the mall last December. I also turned in a nice little rant based on the "work whore" connotation of my WV ("whorqe").

But Blogger ate it and I don't have the energy to try to recreate it.

 
At 27 February, 2008, Blogger Freakazojd said...

GREAT photos! My mother-in-law would love these, she taught highland dancing when my hubby was young. Until she had to stop because he was such a handfull. Heh...wonder how far my apple can fall from his father's tree. :)
Anyway, I didn't play (again) because this month has been a little insane, but I'm hoping to get back into it soon - I've been loving the words!! Stone and glass...I think I can absolutely do something for those for next week.
xo

 
At 27 February, 2008, Blogger Freakazojd said...

Ugh, I can't spell handful. Also, a fucking vending machine for weight loss pills?! That makes me sad. And mad. And not just because they rhyme.

 
At 28 February, 2008, OpenID kcinnova said...

I see she didn't comment here, but Jenn
http://jugglinglife.typepad.com/juggling_life/2008/02/wood-and-metal.html

has a great post. The story behind it is wonderful!

 
At 28 February, 2008, Blogger fiwa said...

Great pictures - I love the dancers. I've always wanted to go to a Highland Games festival - maybe I'll make the effort this year - I know we have one here in WA state.

 
At 28 February, 2008, Blogger butterfly girl said...

That's insane. The med vending. For people like me no doubt that are to proud to pay money for a little fat help! *L*

Love the pics! Thought that chic in the red was you! Ha-Ha!

 
At 28 February, 2008, Blogger Karen said...

I just stumbled upon your site and love the idea of the WWC. I will be on the lookout for stone and glass for this week.
But I really had to stop in and say "I was totally there!" the Scottish Festival thingee where your Wood and Metal pictures, etc were taken! Small freakin' world!

 
At 29 February, 2008, Blogger rudecactus said...

The vending machine? Wrong. All kinds of wrong. Like me in a kilt.

 
At 01 March, 2008, Blogger Hilary said...

How did I miss this post? I love your photos.. I always do. That axe in the wood stump is my favourite.

 
At 06 March, 2008, Blogger Orhan Kahn said...

Weightloss vending machine??! Now I've seen it all.

 
At 07 March, 2008, Anonymous Raven said...

Here's mine, sorry so late to the show. I just found out about this and wanted to get in on the last few to catch up.
