Just 4 Fun 76

GM

So are you ready for some fun? But where’s the scope for fun during weekdays you ask?

Change

Or perhaps you would prefer to put it like this:

Let your smile change the world

Now that’s the spirit! 😀

ChocoJust the other day I was thinking I can resist chocolates but not jalebis or chikki 😉 What about you?

SoundSome time ago my sister called me up and said, “I was having this conversation with my son and I swear I could hear Ma coming out of my mouth!” Has that ever happened with you?

Man mirror

So true… but then too serious for a Monday fun post right?

Minions Pinterest - @minionsalive

Heheh – me and who else?

Caution: u see this coz I post thisSo which one is your favorite 😀

Lol hilarious. I have to try this...even though it will probably get me into a lot of trouble.

That’s me apologizing for this post – not as much fun as I thought it would be. Maybe I am just tired and the week’s just begun…

Screen Shot 2018-02-19 at 9.38.21 PMHow I wish I could be Hobbes 😀 Oh well Calvin has to go to school and we will have to go to work but since we are on the topic of wishes…

Funny Pictures Of The Day � 38 Pics

Ahh that sure does sound like bliss 😉

That’s it folks and as usual none of it is mine but borrowed from the world wide web. Have a super week ahead.

 

 

 

 

 

A Wounded Lioness

This week for Becca’s Sunday Trees photo feature, I bring you one with many layers to her.

T1An impressive tree, I think, a mango tree perhaps. If so she would have been stoned, prodded and climbed all over the entire long summer. But undaunted, unconcerned she has continued her journey to reach for the sky.

T2I come closer. She allows a money plant to drape her like a scarf, even allow a lamp to rest on her curves.

T3Hey wait! That’s no drapery – it’s growing out of her. Just another surrogate mother for one who is not even her kind. My kind? she asks. What’s that? All life is my kind.

T4Just look at those wounds and scars. Don’t they hurt? I ask. No she shakes her branches.

T6Liar. I choke on tears as I walk over to the other side. Her silent howl of despair unheard in this vast preoccupied universe.

Do I have passport photos?

Ma

Maaaaaaa!!!!!

Yes. Did you have lunch?

Where are they?

In your wallet. Lunch?

Checked. Not there.

Check again. Did you wish Dadu?

They’re not there Ma.

They’re behind the pocket for coins.

I used those up last time.

There are 4 more. How many do you need?

Two. But they aren’t there.

How will you find them if you are busy texting me?

Did you have lunch?

Don’t forget to call Dadu

Did you find them?

Found them.

It’s freezing today.

Dress warmly.

Zip up your jacket.

Eat something.

Are you listening?

CFFC: Ze Zed Zee Zone

It’s time for some Zeds, Zees and Zzzzs at Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge as she wraps up the alphabets with a twist challenge.  So, any word with Z in it or people, animals catching some zzzs.

The last one would be the easiest for my husband takes immense pleasure in clicking photos of me while I doze off, especially during our hectic trips. But then I don’t want to destroy all your illusions, so it will have to be zomething elze.

Atoz

A roadside shop where you can find A to Z of everything and to suit everybody’s taste, palate and zaika (sense of taste or flavors) 😀 The man on the left is our entertaining driving cum guide. By his own confession, he has studied till class 6 but his wife is a school teacher in a different city altogether. With his six-year-old daughter. Despite parental disapproval. After marriage, he encouraged her to complete her studies. And oh he loves history and has about a couple of hundred books that he devours. But that’s enough, there are zero marks for diversionary tactics.

Dazzled

I was quite dazzled by the beautiful moonlight on the lake – hey no wait that’s the Sun! Amazing isn’t it?

BedazzledI was, as you can see terribly enamored and bedazzled by this window and couldn’t resist sharing another look – the evening look. Missed the other one – here it is but you’ll have to scroll through the entire post.

ZoneThen there was this Coffee Zone right above a horror house. Don’t miss the wrapchics on the left – very innovative don’t you think? 😀

Zoom in

Among the decaying yellowing stones that witnessed brutal wars, blood shed and self-immolation, we find the first stirrings of life. Can’t see it? Just zoom in on the topmost panel.

Gazing

Sitting and gazing in quiet contemplation of man’s foolish ideas of running hither and thither for no rhyme or reason other than to just earn money? And what to do with it? Rest, relax, enjoy? Well he was already doing that.  Should he take up the challenge and proselytize his ideas? Psst I just learned the word – is the sentence okay?

Jazzy2Next I have some jazzy colorful clothes for you to admire and gaze at with bedazzled eyes. No they aren’t for sale.

JazzyThese jazzy dresses are meant for tourists to wear and pose for photographs. Most hill stations have these and once my son too was lured in and dressed up in a purple kingly gown wielding a sword. 😀

Zigzag branchesAfter those heavy dresses, time to give the eyes some rest by gazing upon the bare zigzag branches of yet another bindaas tree 🙂

SnoozingA warm winter afternoon on a long weekend – any guesses on how many would be dozing or snoozing at a time?

ZincThe zinc laden Aravali mountains in and around Udaipur, Rajasthan. Can you see it shining and reflecting the sunlight?

ZorbThose are the zorb balls – in case you didnt know. I didnt! Apparently they are the in thing and are available in aqua, ground and body versions. You can get in, singly or in groups and then enjoy being thrown around. Looks like fun – from far! 😀

Well that’s it for me in Cee’s twisted alphabetical challenge – thanks so very much for visiting. Now how about sharing which your favorite zed was?

COB: Off Beat Clicks

It’s time for Cee’s odd ball challenge – with full license (well more than usual [if that is possible]) to play as we like, with whatever we like, no questions asked. So here are a bunch of odd photos that I hope will enjoy browsing.

Aquarium

Caught this one showing off her (his?) lip job 😀

CrowA tea drinking crow! Photo courtesy my lil sistah

Fan

A fan from yester years.

Cutlery holderAn ultra modern cutlery holder

Girl WindowI was trying to capture the window when this girl came by – I thought it looked cool. Do you think so too?

Pose odd

This has to be my favorite COB shot 😀 All those people posing to catch the tip of the Vijay Stambh  which if you remember I had showcased in an earlier post. The contortionist photographers were also quite a sight to behold. No wonder all those langurs were out in hordes. 😀

Thanks for stopping by – any personal favorites? Do tell.

Hello Anyone There?

“Dad please!” They gheraoed him.

“No.”

Why ever not?”

“Because it’s my house and I say so.”

“But Dad,” said the eldest with a quelling glance at his sibling, “think of the advantages.”

“Over my dead body.”

“Daddy,” his daughter too chipped in, “selling the house would sort all our financial troubles.” She sniffled. “Ma would have also liked you to…”

“If she were alive, I would’ve shifted.”

“But Daddy, the house is falling to bits and it’s old fashioned, inconvenient for you…”

“I don’t care. I’m not selling.” He was adamant.

“Don’t be such a stick in the mud Shankar!” Exhorted his friend. “Sell off this prime property and buy a sprawling bungalow with a marvelous view of the lake, sunset…”

“I don’t want a big house.”

“Why not? Isn’t it cramped and inconvenient here?”

“Perhaps.” Shankar said in low voice, “But at least I get to see them.”

Just 4 Fun #75

GM

How cute is that? Looks to be having some really sweet and pleasant dreams 🙂

Dreams

So perhaps I should end this post and go back to my dreams 😀

Papbirdie

I came across some more examples of nature play-acting. A papaya bird! Can’t you just imagine her getting bored of doing the same old stuff everyday and voila she is inspired by the little bird that pecks at her.

Handy

And then the hand that plucks at her clean.

Snakepalm

But of course this one has to be my favorite – grooving and snaking to the song of the Universe that we are deaf to.

A tiny tale to change the mood.

TinyDark and deep huh?

TextingOops – Daddy’s busted 😉

Headache

Just look at their expressions, especially hers –Oh yeah? And he looks scruffy and maybe even drunk. Wonder what her reaction was? Perhaps something like this:

 

Drunk

Heehaw 😀

Autocorrect

Especially if you type HInglish and Benglish not to mention Benhind 😀

Okay that’s it from me, hope you liked my selection, of which as usual none are mine. I just collected them and shared for our collective entertainment. And before I go one tiny puzzle to make sure you don’t miss my going 😉 😀

PuzzleHave fun and if you know the answer do let me know in the comment box along with the solution. Have a super week 🙂
