Weekly Words Challenge 44!

The words for this week (and last) were Sign and Graffiti.

How did you interpret them?

Sign
Saturday, Hoop and I drove up on a slow moving minivan with a bumper sticker that said, "I STILL Support Bush". To which I replied (via window sign)-


A cute note on the door of a down town shop-


Graffiti

Hoop and I drove all around our town looking for graffiti and found NONE! We saw a bunch of places where they'd covered it up, some fresh looking. I know I should be happy about this. No graffiti is a good thing, right? Oddly, it just made me blue. Where's the creativity? I swear we live in Stepford.

(Random Picture)

Pink Tree Flowers


The words for next week are:
Temporary
and
Permanent

If you haven't joined the fun yet, go

If I lived in Stepford I would go around poking well dressed moms with knives to watch them spark.
I like the sign. You should sell those on Etsy.

I played last week ... http://tinyurl.com/6lmefs (Tink, you already saw it). But I'm running a contest starting today, so if you want to check it out, www.moosmoo.wordpress.com

Although I'm glad you're back, I also must admit I enjoyed the week off. Now I feel I have fresh eyes for next week's challenge!

I played last week. Nice sign, Tink! Also, the pink flower is really pretty!

I think some cities have a person on payroll who's only job is to drive around town with a can of gray paint and cover up graffiti. Sometimes the graffiti looks nicer than the gray paint they use to cover it up with.

Love the sign. Be careful though. That Bush supporter is probably armed. LOL

All that creativity is being quashed! You must speak out!

I betcha you'll find loads of graffiti now that you've made this posting.

I was going to look for graffiti and play again this week but I totally spaced that today was Tuesday!

LOL at your sign that is too funny. What was their response?

 
At 22 July, 2008, Blogger Reb said...

Good signs Tink. What there isn't even any sanctioned graffiti?

Love the tree flowers, what kind?

I played again this week.

G-Man: Believe it or not, the driver looked just like Barbara Bush! She just shook her head and gave me a sad smile. :P

The bouncy rhythm of that poem is far too cheerful and upbeat for its content. Sheesh. Did he follow it up with a limerick?

Your Bush sign made me giggle.

 
At 22 July, 2008, Blogger PEACE said...

Loved the Bush sign. I can't believe anyone would admit to being a Bush supporter!

 
At 23 July, 2008, Blogger Chris said...

Your Bush sign is excellent! :D

Wow, no graffiti? I just have to walk about 100 feet...

Heh - you're right about the Vampixie description!

I do so love the Bush Sucks sign. I frequently wish I was in the passenger seat when I see things like the "yay Bush" bumpers. :)

Do you think the Meet the Sporks creator was inspired by you? :)

 
At 24 July, 2008, Blogger Dianne said...

At 24 July, 2008, Blogger Maggie said...

I love your sign!

That Boys will be Blockheads doll was frickin $50! WTF?

 
At 24 July, 2008, Blogger Molly said...

Love your Bush sign although you might have been too kind.

 
At 24 July, 2008, Blogger womaninawindow said...

That's one weird (and scary) looking pink flower.

Your Bush sign is just one more reason to love you!

 
At 25 July, 2008, Blogger Real Live Lesbian said...

I love that doggie sign, too! I wish more places invited the fur-faced ones in!

Great pink flower!

Oh, love your "response" sign to the minivan's bumper sticker - priceless! Did you manage to see the driver's reaction?
