Weekly Words Challenge 45!

The words for this week were Temporary and Permanent.

How did you interpret them?


(Washed Out Sandcastle)



(Random Pictures)

Sea Turtle Nest


Hoop's Seatbelt Solution
The night we got back from Tennessee, the AC on my brand new car broke. Since we're too poor to fix it right now, Hoop has agreed to drive the hotbox on wheels for awhile. The only thing he really minds about my car is the annoying seatbelt alarm that goes off every two minutes if you don't buckle up. I went to get into the passenger side of my car this weekend and saw this. I don't know what I'm going to do with that boy.

The words for next week are:

If you haven't joined the fun yet, go
here for details. Don't forget, we also have a Flickr group now for easy shareability. Plus, you get to find out the new words at least an hour earlier. Happy snapping!

Daily Etsy Pick:

Oh!!!! Your little toesies!!!!
I didn't follow your theme for pics, per se, but I posted full frontal nud!ty!!!!

that beach just looks gorgeous....

At 29 July, 2008, Blogger Jay said...

That beach looks really inviting right now! I need to move to the beach.

Hoop could solve that problem by just wearing his seat belt. It's like a $50 fine if he gets stopped without one isn't it? ;-)

At 29 July, 2008, Blogger g-man said...

Excellent as always. I did footprints too. :)

Does Hoop want to eat the steering wheel?

At 29 July, 2008, Blogger Jay said...

Don't be such a pussy anon. Post your comment under your own name.

At 29 July, 2008, Blogger Janet said...

oh, I love your photos this week...I miss the beach!

That Jelly Bean Machine would be cool for the office...hmmm...

And I just sent the link to the Custom Doll 4 U to my boss...her husband's a twit!

Mine's up: http://fondofsnape.com/?p=1805 (and I also have a turtle shot!)

Amen Jay.

Tink, I love the permanent picture. I think you should hang it on your wall.

love you -

At 29 July, 2008, Blogger moo said...

wow, what a sucky comment, anon. way to be. *I* want to spork your face off.

LOVE the sandy feet picture! Love the sentiment behind it, too!

I didn't play, but I have a post up about craptastic neighbors, if anyone wants to sympathize. www.moosmoo.wordpress.com

The pic of shells is awesome - frame it! And I LOVE the feet!
Tell Hoop to wear his seatbelt so you two can have many years of playing footsie. Or I'll have to come down there and yell at him myself.

BTW, the leopard gecko is named "Spots." The former owners called him "Bobo" but SnakeMaster couldn't live with that one.

And yes, mine are up. (But you knew that already!)

At 29 July, 2008, Blogger Janet said...

ps. Is that a honda civic si? looks JUST like the inside of my car!

At 29 July, 2008, Blogger Karen said...

I love all the beach photos. Just beautiful.

Mine are up too.

At 29 July, 2008, Blogger Tink said...

Anon: Although I agree that Hoop should wear his seatbelt, there was probably a more tactful way to put your comment. I'm going to delete it before Hoop reads it. Sorry.

Janet: Mazda3. But you're not the first one that has pointed out the similarities. :)

Kcinnova: Ew, Bobo. What a horrible name! I like Spots much better.

Moo: They may be craptastic. But they sure make great blog fodder.

G-Man: Most of the time he wears it. But sometimes he just feels like being a twerp. I have a sneaking suspicion he left that seatbelt thing for me to find too. ;)

Jay: If you LIVED here you could go to the beach any time you wanted!

At 29 July, 2008, Blogger Mary said...

you have little tiny feet! how cute ;-)

Tell hoop to knock that shit off and buckle his seatbelt. Now.

At 29 July, 2008, Blogger Reb said...

Tink, fabulous photos as always. Love the feet and the shells. Tell Hoop to wear his seatbelt, please.

Mine are up (for anyone that hasn't already seen them ;))

At 29 July, 2008, Blogger furiousBall said...

the shell/sand shot is so neato, should be wallpaper

At 29 July, 2008, Blogger Chatty said...

I love your take on the words this week - positively inspired. I would like to think that if I still lived by the ocean, I would have thought of it - but in my heart of hearts I doubt it...beautiful pictures - all of them, Tink!
Mine are up, btw
While I don't know what you're going to do with Hoop either - I say marry him ; ) - he's CLEVER! And willing to drive a hot box so that you can have a temperature-controlled environment. Smart AND sweet. He's definitely a keeper...but you already knew that, didn't you??

At 29 July, 2008, Blogger Chatty said...

The chopped baby box is just too weird even to comment on - "conversation piece" indeed - and may I suggest that the conversation be between the artist and her shrink???
But it was the bluebird of happiness that was floating upper right in "Don't Look Aunt Pearl in the Eye" that really captured my attention. You KNOW that bird is going to crap on somebody's head and spoil their day - just in case having Aunt Pearl around wasn't enough...great finds, as usual, Tink!

At 29 July, 2008, Blogger the Bag Lady said...

Loved the feet - definitely poster-fodder!!
Hoop - wear the damned belt! Sheesh!
(isn't there a seatbelt law there?)
Although I can relate to the dinging every two minutes if you don't put the belt on - mine does that, too. I just keep pushing the release button until it gives up in frustration! (I don't wear the belt when I'm driving in the hayfield - it's too uncomfortable because the field is so rough...)
Sorry for the novel-length comment... I'll go back to lurking now.

At 29 July, 2008, Blogger Aunt Jackie said...

I love all those beach pics and my fav is your feet together!!! awwww.

The shells are great!

Hoop better Buckle UP!

Minez up 2day. :)

At 29 July, 2008, Blogger Karen said...

The feet photo is great. I do a similar thing with my seat belt. Tell Hoop I say great minds...

Oh, I actually played this week :)

At 29 July, 2008, Blogger the planet of janet said...

he's clever, that hoop is!

cool pix, too.

At 29 July, 2008, Blogger Jo said...

The footsy photo is just so incredibly sweet, Tink...it belongs on your wall. I love the pebbly beach shots too. All we have here is stupid sand.

I wanna hang out with the odd doll lady b/c of this: He probably will smell better than your old man LOL!

At 29 July, 2008, Blogger Hilary said...

Wonderful pics as always, especially those feet.

And what a clever way to let Hoop know that you want him to be safe.. sic the bloggers on him! Buckle up, willya?

At 29 July, 2008, Blogger flutter said...

oh those feet just made me all verklempt

At 29 July, 2008, Blogger Chris said...

I hope you're getting that picture of the feet framed!

How the hell do you find that WTF Etsy stuff?! SO SCARY.

At 29 July, 2008, Blogger Fortune Cookies said...

love the toes in sand photo! mine are up, finally...come on by

At 29 July, 2008, Blogger womaninawindow said...

Those foots...I think they love each other...

At 30 July, 2008, Blogger Mary said...


for you

At 30 July, 2008, Blogger HalfAsstic.com said...

I don't blame him. I assumed you were talking about HIS seatbelt. The car is conspiring against him. He Must Win.

At 30 July, 2008, Blogger captain corky said...

Inmate 7345-2: Don't fuck with Corky or he'll hurt you just like he hurt that Turtle Nest!

At 30 July, 2008, Blogger Terri said...

my husband does the same thing with the seat belt! Drives me bozonkers. He's even disabled the buzzer on his truck. I tell him that's NOT how to teach our kids to wear their seat belts!

At 30 July, 2008, Blogger Dianne said...

Hoop! Honey! You have got some hot feet! They are the feet of a strong bold man who WEARS his seat belt.

Just sayin'

Tink - I love the way you presented the footprints and then the feet - so lovely.

You're a really good photographer :)

At 30 July, 2008, Blogger rudecactus said...

Despite the fact that I was just at the beach a few weeks ago, I'm jealous.

At 30 July, 2008, Blogger Sparkling Red said...

Pretty shell fragments! Sand starts out sharp and slowly gets softer...

At 02 August, 2008, Blogger Catutes said...

That Sand/Shell picture would make one helluva a jigsaw puzzle.

At 04 August, 2008, Blogger Farmer*swife said...

All the pics were so cute! But, the feet? You have to B&W that one and frame it for your wedding reception!

And, I'd also submit it to Hallmark. Really cute.

[Y'alls sand is really course where you are.]

Happy, Oops this is next Monday already!
