Weekly Words Challenge 51!

The words for this week were Safe and Danger.

How did you interpret them?

Danger: Keep Hands and Feet Away

...otherwise your finger might turn into Pacman.

...unless you're Superman, able to deflect pointy arrows.


Dangerous Old Lawnmower

The wheels were stuck in place; which made using it like pushing around a fifty pound lead weight. Then the bolts on the handlebar gave way, forcing the user to hold it up while pushing. In short, I was afraid Hoop would have a heart attack if we kept it much longer.

Safe
Thankfully, Hoop buckled and decided to get a riding lawn mower this weekend. It was long overdo! Now my baby can mow safely and in style.


(Hoop's Entries!)

*A caution: Some of the images below are gross. You've been warned*

Safe Frog


Dangerous Door For Little Critters


Squished Lizard

Ewwww.

The words for next week are:
Male
and
Female

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!

I Heart Etsy: Will be posted on Wednesday! :) Correction: Thursday.

At first I thought the lizard pics were a before and after shot. I had to do a double take to see if you killed the lizard for the sake of art.

Cute froggie, but poor little lizard!!
I have been warned and will be careful of the dreaded Pac-Man finger.

Congrats on the new mower! Ours is named Buttercup; what did you name yours?

Mine are up! http://kcinnova.wordpress.com


PS: word verification this time? "hayhic" ...which reminds me of what dh looks like when he's out with Buttercup! lol

The Pacman and Superman comments totally cracked me up.

 
At 09 September, 2008, Blogger Allison said...

Dude, is it wrong that I think the squished lizard photos are totally cool? Yeah. Thought so...

 
At 09 September, 2008, Blogger g-man said...

I'll have to send Hoop my "Frog" photos. :) Nicely done you two. I'm groovin on the squashed leeezerd too.

I figure that lizard got what he deserved.

Man do I hate push lawnmowers. I especially hate push mowers that aren't self propelled.

Great job on the WWC as usual!

 
At 09 September, 2008, Blogger Peggy said...

I have lawnmower envy.

Beautiful Frog!!

Shame about that lizard.


Rock on!

When death meets cool. Nice last shot!

Of course arrows bounce off my chest. So do bullets, knives and tin cans.

 
At 09 September, 2008, Blogger Karen said...

Um sorry but I can't stop to check out your photos any closer because that picture of the frog gives me chills every time I scroll down. EEEEWWWW I hate frogs.
My pictures are up, no frogs included

 
At 09 September, 2008, Blogger Aunt Jackie said...

Oh lordy, I am so sad about the lizard!!! Bad Hoop!!! lol But great photos this week nonetheless... I'm done. Late in the day, but I finally finished up. :)

 
At 09 September, 2008, Blogger Chatty said...

Poor little lizard - he should have taken advice from the frog!

Great pics, as usual, Tink. I didn't post a WWC today, and will be out of town next week, but I enjoy looking at everyone else's!

I'll be back week after next!

Eep! Dangerous dangers! Beware! Beware!

That squished lizard is so gross!

The frog pic is cool. Poor freaky lizard...it looks like his eyes must've exploded. You should draw a chalk outline of him to warn other lizards.

I'm so jealous of the sit-down mower! You can make your own crop circles.

 
At 10 September, 2008, Blogger Tawcan said...

The squished lizard isn't exactly the type of pic you want to see in the morning. Ewww!

 
At 10 September, 2008, Blogger Reb said...

That is a wonderful new mower! Danger signs abound this time. The frog is a really cool photo, so is the poor lizard though.

 
At 10 September, 2008, Blogger HalfAsstic.com said...

I can't tell you how many times I've done that same exact thing to a lizard or a frog...
Now that Ike is coming here where I am I could take a pic of it for "dangerous"!

 
At 10 September, 2008, Blogger mamatulip said...

I remember when we got our first riding mower. We were so proud...and it was the biggest piece of shit ever...

The squished lizard is gross. In an awesome way.

 
At 11 September, 2008, Blogger Eileen said...

Awww, that lizard is saaad. And a little bit funny, in a Wile E. Cayote sort of way. But don't tell anyone I said that.

 
At 11 September, 2008, Blogger Eileen said...

Coyote. I can spell, really I can...

 
At 11 September, 2008, Blogger CRUSTYBEEF said...

Squished Lizard is an excellent band name. "Thank you Cleveland. We are Squished Lizard!:
