Apologies for missing out on just for fun last week and (almost) this week as well. Just some cool pics thoughts and quirky pieces from all over the world – hope you like.

Can she see through that? That reminds me, there was a news item of a break-in into a store by a man wearing a see-through plastic head cover. Needless to say the CCTV had no trouble capturing his fine features 😀

And therein lies the whole crux of the matter

Wedded

When two pieces of rocks misfit people are bound together in marriage, that’s how it is.

WhyWhy?

Pretty much the words to any real friend I ever had. & some family :)

Look forward to that day 😀 Have a great week and as usual none of the stuff is mine and all credit and kudos to the artists who created these.

The Song Within

Words 100

She was late. All because of the cook. And so inconsiderate of him to take the car.

The signal turned green and the surging crowd spilled on to the road.

It was just February and already so hot.

Oww her shoes hurt.

Not as much as her piercing barbed comments.

Cursing, she hurried ahead of the riff-raff.

A melodious voice rose above the traffic din. “aaaa~aaaa am the one of happy colors.”

The next winner of Voice India!

She slowed down.

A garish electric blue sweater wearing strange mismatched socks limped past her.

Wait.

Not socks but a prosthetic leg.

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.

CFFC: Y? But Then Why Not?

Yep! That’s the challenge this week – Letter Y – Needs to start or end with the letter Y or in the caption for the photo “Why” needs to be present. Cee’s Fun Foto Challenges are getting funner and funner 😀

Let’s see what I can come up with 😉

Smoggy cloudyA smoggy or is it foggy winter morning at 9.30 am! Thank God the worst seems to be over but it’s already time to brace up for the heat and dust 😉

skyComing out from being cooped up in the office the whole day long, I snapped a quick pic of the sky where the feathery clouds had been busy painting it white.

20180206_175342On another day, when a demonstration turned a 10-min drive into a 30-min one I made the most of my time clicking pictures sure that Cee would certainly give me an opportunity to display them sooner or later 😀 Yet, I couldn’t get what I really wanted – off the birds flying home in beautiful formations. But don’t you think the sky looks lovely? Okay! Enough of skies for now – lets move on to something else before you accuse me of repetitive stuff.

YellowAn exquisitely hand carved temple. Can you imagine the vision, the planning and the workmanship that went into building such a marvelous piece of art so many centuries ago? I could simply look at the perfectly designed symmetry for hours and hours. Couldn’t you?

YonderCan you see the yellowing leaves on the yellow-brown path? Actually I wanted to draw your attention to the yonder tree 😀

ShimmyIt was a very interesting and exciting tree (like most trees!) See those roots dropping down – just something Tarzan would love to shimmy down right?

YogaWait! There’s more. The roots got tired of just standing around so one particularly antsy one decided to indulge in some yoga on the way down 😀

ButterflyA yellow butterfly from our garden at home captured by my sister.

WhyWhy? Well like I said Why Not? This photo was shared by my friend Svkuki while on her trip the States and has been crying for some screen space for quite a while now. Besides surely you can see the Y created by the shadow and the cacti in the background?

Oh well, fine be that way…

Just 4 Fun # 70

GM

Why just happiness? Fun and laughter too multiplies when you share it. So here’s some stuff that made me laugh which I share in the hope that your smiles will again bring a smile to my face.

Let’s start with some New Year wishes

hny

May you glow all through the year 😉

Leave Wonder if he was forced to go on a really long leave or promoted for his love 😀

Saloon

Anyone interested?

Pups

Well in his defense, the point is to communicate and he got his massage across right? 😉 Anyone hungry?

SnakesNot fond of snakes? No problem, we serve a wide range

Send

Send witches to make tea, coffe? Oh well, never mind

Momo

Mabel, see you at this corner 😀

Salesgirl

To be honest I completely empathize with this one. Somethings are so deeply ingrained that it’s difficult to rise above them. Once we had to take our son to the hospital due to a severe attack of asthma. It was late at night and we were terribly worried and frazzled. My husband came and asked if the next dose had been given.

I said, “No he said a little later.”

“Who said?” He asked.

“He.” I gestured.

“Who he?” The hubby was irritable and impatient. “The doctor?

Numb and dumb, I shook my head.

Then?”

I searched wildly for the right word and finally in a flash of brilliance I said, “The Sister said.”

I haven’t been able to forget the Nurse’s expression! Ah well, moving on…

Tailor

Anyone requiring a specialist tailor you know where to go 😉

CertifiedI think this one deserves a satifiket for promoting phonetic writing 😀

Last

Now I know which notice to put up when I am closed. But Meneja was the coolest 😀

A huge round of applause and cheers to the never say die spirit and the creativity of my fellow beings – which one did you like best? Or found toughest to decode? Do let me know and have a super week

Hope you found something that you enjoyed – none of which are mine by the way. I found them on the internet or received them as forwards and am just keeping the fun going.
