#2~ Thursday Photo Challenge!

Each Thursday you are given a challenge.. you may then go out and make a new photo or you may use one that you already have.. This weeks challenge is water..

"WATER" (Ocean, Lake, Waterfall, Ice, Rain, Wet Things,...)


A water tower.. on the oceans edge.. in a thunderstorm should pretty much cover the water challenge!...


******************************************************




1. Have you ever performed the Heimlich Maneuver on someone or had it performed on you? ~ No but I have snatched a child's arm up over their head .. and yanked on it when they choked.. that was the old way... it worked too but now they say we can't do that.. they say it's abuse.. who would have thought.. don't choke around me.. I'll do the snatch and jerk on you!!

2. Do you have a red room in your home? (Either painted red or red curtains etc.) ~ I do not have a red room... I am not to fond of red.. my kids once painted most of their room and all of themselves red with fingernail polish though..

3. Have you ever felt like banging your head against the wall?~ besides right now?? yes!!

4. Reports came out this week that Michael Jackson was gay. Are you shocked, don't believe it, don't care or felt he was all along?~ I wouldn't be shocked at much that was said about any famous person.. I don't really care if he was or wasn't.. they are not really important to my life and much as I wish it was different.. I'm sure I wasn't important to his... maybe that's why I'm just finding out about the gay thing huh?.. besides he's dead why do we need to know this now?

5. What's the dumbest thing you have done after a breakup with a S/O?~ I did a lot of dumb things after my one and only divorce.. I don't think I ever had a significant other besides him.. I had a few others but they were purely insignificant! I did do a smart thing though and marry my wonderful honey man.. (that honey man thing is for spite to the kids..) I love ya Dave!

6. If Berleen and Bud are standing on the roof of a one story building and decide to throw water balloons at Kimber walking down below on the sidewalk, what color balloon hits her first?~ I'm almost sure the jar of tinkle.. that the old witch on the first floor tossed out the window.. falls faster! But if you demand a balloon color I'll say purple..

7. What are the wildest, craziest pajamas you own?~ I used to own some of those now I just crash in shorts or sometimes a gown.. I do have some old red cloth that I could wrap up in and pretend I'm in a red room or something..

8. Have you ever ridden in a sidecar on a motorcycle? ~ I have not.. I have ridden behind Dave and was once even thrown through the air across his back and landed on my feet.. I know it sounds like a lie.. but it is in fact the whole truth.. The side car sounds fun though..
9. Do/did you go party on Cinco De Mayo, and if so what color was the bartender's shirt?~ I did not go.. but I could have drank some tequila.. I like tequila.. If I had gone I'm thinking the shirt would have been black..

10. Why does a hat have a bill?~ to shade your eyes.. to write crazy sayings on.. and so people could ask this question..

11. If you were a WWE professional wrestler, what would your stage name be?! ~ wrestling is faker than fake and I would never be one... but the name crazy lady works alright..or I could use my old Trailer park name.. Miss Meany!

12. How many keys do you have on your keyring?~ lets see.. car.. house.. mama's house.. special secret box.. hidden cages.. handcuffs.. hmmm.... a few..

13. What is the oldest picture you currently have in your home? What year was it taken and who/what is the photo of? I love pictures and I have a bunch of them.. the oldest one I have is of my parents before they had children.. I'm guessing at 60 years old.. maybe a little older..
Thats my three things to share with you this Thursday.. Thanks for dropping by my blog..
I hope you have enjoyed your visit and maybe smiled or had a laugh... Please feel free to leave me comments.. Have a wonderful night..
Patsy

Miss Meany would make a great wrestler name. I did one too.

I love the haiku. The picture looks like it was a pretty heavy storm rolling in.
