Any 5 (FIVE) pictures, any subject, and any 5 (FIVE) words to describe and/or explain each picture. CAN YOU DO IT???..........I wonder!!!!!!


Can you brelieve this guy!!!!
He might have a point!


Whose Favourite fodder is Dandelions??

Your Aubretia is looking much healthier than mine. Mine seems to have withered with the snow and frost of the last couple of weeks!

And what is that guy doing in the first photo...or shouldn't I ask!!?

Love the drunk! Reminds me of my Dad. We had something similar I bought him in the 70's! hehe

You've guessed~ maybe my clue was not very good! There were 2 of them at it! My neighbour left a note on the car. They were attending a funeral and the church does have facilities!!

 
At 14/4/08 10:39, Blogger Sayre said...

Oh. Your explanation of the statue thing helps - my eyes were seeing something totally different (imagine what might be happening behind the car in the first). I think I better got get some coffee now!

I enjoyed your eclectic photos and your terse descriptions.

Ahhh, drunks. Sigh.

Seriously, publishing the private time of turtles :D ? So cute!

PS: Do you think the drunks actually had the capacity to read the note left them at the funeral?

Chris your pictures and words are brilliant! Is that dude having a pee? *Mock Shock!*

Dandelions DO look pretty! I think they do. :o)

You have shown us some very unique photos, and your captions are priceless.

LOL! Men! Wonderfull group of pictures!
Yes, Chris. Except for the Order of the Arrow. My Older son already has that. Plus on top of getting your number of badges you get honors, which he will recieve. (forgot what they call it) Plus he is fixing to do his project. He will build our church a play ground.

I always use to pick dandelions and give them to my mom and she would pretend they were the most beautiful flower ever.

 
At 14/4/08 13:43, Blogger Amanda said...

At 14/4/08 14:12, Blogger Lil Mouse said...

Oh, I wish I had Aubretia. That's beautiful.
Is that guy REALLY relieveing himself or just looking at his toes.
How are the turtles?

Those flowers are so vibrant. Nice photos.

 
At 14/4/08 15:37, Blogger ChrisB said...

nikki I actually pick dandelions for the tortoises they love them (I won't tell you how they clear their system!)

daffy I can tell my shock at the time was total disbelief at what I was seeing in a very public place- outside my neighbour's house!

kitten you must be so proud of your son~ you will have to keep us updated on his progress with building the playground.

swampy Tom is full of spring fever!!!

New job for bartenders! Making the patrons buckle up before another round--why not? they need to multitask as well. Hopefully the "boy" turtle's luck turned. . .

 
At 14/4/08 15:58, Blogger Pamela said...

I can't decide if I'm jealous or mortified #1 (what No toilet in the church -- wow)

beautiful Aubretia. I don't think I've had that in my garden. It's raining today, so that combined with our two days of summer aught to bring out my flowers quickly.

 
At 14/4/08 16:05, Blogger Kaytabug said...

Fantastic photos and descriptions!
Funny and beautiful all in one post!!

 
At 14/4/08 16:06, Blogger ChrisB said...

At 14/4/08 19:50, Anonymous Robin (the PENSIEVE one) said...

Oh, Chris, how delightful!

Your captions made me giggle at times. Yes, giggle! Gotta love how you managed to get in a few extra words with the turtles, smart girl you are!

I can't believe your first shot! I wonder if he knew he was "under observation"! And just about any dandelion photo gives me reason to smile. They're such happy WEEDS!

:)

What fun photos! The turtle's pick up line, and the dandelion ones are my favorites!

Even for a weed, I love their sunny color, and when they go to see I love to see the girls blow them to the wind!!

 
At 14/4/08 20:42, Blogger Gattina said...

I haven't seen any turtle today ! and turtles in love are even better, lol !

 
At 14/4/08 21:14, Blogger Alison said...

Our Guinea-pigs go mad for dandelion leaves and would eat them 'til they pop!
Beautiful aubretia,lovely colour.

I love the photos of the flowers. I like how you mixed some humour in there as well.

 
At 14/4/08 23:32, Blogger Sandy said...

Maybe now instead of trying to kill the dandelions, I will just try to find some tortoises.

Great pictures, Chris.

 
At 14/4/08 23:33, Blogger Betty said...

Very fun photos described in only 5 words. I enjoyed that.

On my blog today you asked about where Ed and I were when those pictures of us were taken. Yellowstone National Park.

Hope you are having a good week.

 
At 14/4/08 23:38, Blogger Betty said...

It's me again. Question. I noticed your blog is listed before the comments are shown so others can visit you. I tried to registered my blog site, but I kept getting an error message. So my blog is not listed where others can visit me.

Can you tell me how you were able to register your blog?

Thanks.

Nothing like a hot and fast woman to bring a guy out of his shell. Thanks for participating in our 5 for 5. NLM

 
At 15/4/08 03:37, Blogger Kim said...

Maybe he was just expressing his sentiments about the deceased?

Did I just say that out loud?

Nah, couldn't have.

Very cool - except the spy pic. It was a real pisser!

Yellow is a good color for a weed's flower. It is the rest of the plant that is the bad part.

 
At 15/4/08 06:12, Blogger Kila said...

Oh, I LOVE Dandelions!

 
At 15/4/08 09:33, Blogger karisma said...

I enjoyed your five photos and captions for Fun Monday this week … especially the one with the tortoises ;--)

I posted my 'five' yesterday at Small Reflections but didn’t have time to visit until now, so I’m catching up today.

Hugs and blessings.

At 15/4/08 22:23, Blogger ChrisB said...

jettie I'm sorry you didn't get more visitors~ did you manage to get around everyone. It does take a long time I cannot do it in one day and now if I've tried a couple of times and posts are not up then I confess I might not always go back a third time.

 
At 16/4/08 04:29, Blogger my4kids said...

Great pictures Chris. Love the one of the tortoises. So how is Topsy?
