Weekly Words Challenge 63!

The words for this week were Abundance and Thanks.

How did you interpret them?


This probably would have been more suitable for next week's words. Hoop giggles every time he sees it. I have no idea why. ;)

Many Thanks For...

...A Healthy Family Tree

...An Afternoon Wine-Down

...A Great Place To Live

...A Man Who Makes Me Laugh

This is Hoop's idea of rainy day wear.

(Other random photos)

House Reflection

Parrots In Flight

Everyone kept telling me they existed. But until Thanksgiving, I'd never actually seen wild parrots in Northern Florida. I'm still waiting on the monkeys.

Parrots In A Tree

A Little Bird Told Me

My Head In The Clouds...

...and my feet on the ground.

Cowboy Hat

The words for next week are:

Aw, I love your pics Tink, absolutely love them.
I am sure that sometime soon the abundance of orders I have and which I am thankful for will allow me to get back the wwc track....

I love birds!! Funtastic photos!! They're always just spot on color and look professional.

Love the way you used the words this week too. Doesn't Hoop look handsome in plastic bags?? hehehe

I swear to god, I started at that first photo for 5 minutes before I could figure out what it was. It looks EXACTLY like one of those dildos you can buy that suction cup to the top of a table. Or um, so I've been TOLD that's what they look like. Ehem.

LOL at the first one

ROLF At Allison!!

Nice shootin there Tex (for the hat) and all the rest. Well done as usual!!

When I first looked at the 1st pic I thought it was a dildo...I was like ummm this is certainly not work safe. Then I take a closer look and laughed. The house reflection pic is pretty neat. I also like that little bird pic. :)

Santa note to Tink: Buy those cowboy boot sideburns for Hoop's stocking.

That first picture cracked me up! You might just have to post it again next week. ;)

You have wild parrots there? I've seen a parrot in a tree before, but I knew which window it had escaped from... the shot of so many in a tree amazes me.

You indeed have an abundant life to be thankful for. (And I've got to stop ending sentences with prepositions!!)

Mine are simple & up.

oh man, oh man. tell hoop those bags make kick ass kites too.

At 02 December, 2008, Blogger Janet said...

I know why it makes Hoop giggle...makes me giggle for the same reason LMAO!

LOVE the house reflection and the two of you with the tree :-)

Mine's up: http://fondofsnape.com/?p=1976

And I LOVE these sneaks: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=16958360

Yeah I giggled at the first pic too. I still am!

Love the parrots. That would be cool to watch them.

Great pics as always Tink!

At 02 December, 2008, Blogger mrspao said...

Great pics - the first one is hilarious!

At 02 December, 2008, Blogger Chatty said...

OK. I just pulled an idiotic stunt of amazing proportions! I had just posted my pics, and came here to tell you. I had your post "Passing the Torch" up, because I always put a link to it in my post, so people will have the rules if they want to play. WELL, I went to comment and tell you that my pics are up, and don't you just know - I posted a comment on the "Passing the Torch" post, instead of today's! It was a swell little comment, too - full of good advice that means absolutely NOTHING considering that the situation is over 60 weeks old! I DID wonder about everybody being happy that the WWC would continue, and that people who ALWAYS contribute were saying things like "I'm going to play!" Duh. That might have been a clue, yes?
Sheesh. I am such a dimwit sometimes.

Moving along, I love your family tree, and also Hoop's idea of rainy-day wear. And your parrots in flight are lovely (I have seen wild parakeets in flight - yes, truly - but never parrots) and the darling little bird who told you...something. But, come on, Tink - you don't know why Hoop is laughing at that first pic? Really? I sure do ; )
Oh, and the pics from Honeymoon Day 3 below - I especially LOVE your "scooter" attire - a helmet and...not much else! Only you could pull off that look and still look sweet and innocent, Ms. Tink!
As to WTF etsy - my, my. A two-headed duck fawn? I'm with you - WHY? I kind of like the cowboy sideburns, though. And the box of rocks is just too weird...it's a big "Huh"? I'll never know how you find this stuff - but thank you!

At 02 December, 2008, Blogger Chris said...

That first picture is too funny - I'm glad I'm not reading this at work! Hee hee.

At 02 December, 2008, Blogger Karen said...

Tink the pictures are great as always! Afternoon wine down has to be my favorite though. Who wouldn't love that?!
Oh and the first picture, maybe you should've saved it for next week. But I'm guessing with Hoop around you'll have many other things to photograph!
Mine are up. Late, but up.

At 03 December, 2008, Blogger Karen said...

I had to stare at that first picture for like 45 second to figure out what it was. That is so phallic!

At 03 December, 2008, Blogger Mary said...

How cool are those wild parrots?!?! sweet.

Love the entertainment! I can always get a giggle from you1

At 03 December, 2008, Blogger captain corky said...

Awesome pics of the parots. I thought they only lived in cages or on a pirate's shoulder. Who need Animal Planet. I'm coming here from now on! ;)

At 03 December, 2008, Blogger Woman in a Window said...

I can see how Hoop thought that first better suited for next week. I think you should have waited for the word "frightening". Something there just says Yikes to me!

That picture of the solitary black bird is stunning. (oh, and a little ominous, too.)

At 03 December, 2008, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I also giggled when I saw that picture.

I have no idea why.....

At 03 December, 2008, Blogger Fortune Cookies said...

Oh WOW! Can't blame Hoop for giggling, I nearly sprayed my coffee through my nostrils when I saw that first photo! It borders on Not Safe for Work! :)
That lake looks so serene, except I keep thinking of the alligators that are just below the surface...
Hopefully I'll be able to join in the WWC next week, I miss playing!

At 03 December, 2008, Blogger Newt said...

Those are awesome girl!

At 04 December, 2008, Blogger Chris Cactus said...

Looks like McDonalds was happy to see you. Fantastic as always.

Okay, I don't actually know what's in that first picture, but I know what it looks like. Was this taken at Jenna James' house? Also, there's a tree in another part of town where flocks of wild parrots live. They're not in any other place...just in this particular tree. It's pretty cool.

At 04 December, 2008, Blogger Hilary said...

Great shots.. even the first one, but particularly the house reflection and the family tree. Clever girl, you is.

At 04 December, 2008, Blogger CRUSTY MOM-E said...

omg, on your post up above on the cop thing, I yawn too...wonder why? try to act like we're all normal and not nervous to see them? cause nerves always come with that--
I loved that post..and this one too, but loved it..and am glad that you did it-I think it helps with Chris and all..besides, I'd love to use it as a meme.

Thanks Tink!
When I see Tinkerbells, I wish I were there buying you a beer-lol or whatever. Happy marriage!
Off to put my little guys down--enjoy the peace now!! :)


At 04 December, 2008, Blogger CRUSTY MOM-E said...

Someday you're going to have a Tinkerbella :)

Such a rich red in that wine!
