Scavenger Hunt Sunday...

Even though we were on the road last week, I did manage to find something in my files for all the prompts this week.  Here they are:  Body Part, Wednesday, Music, Guess What It Is and Mirror Image.  Here are my entries.

I decided to use a picture of some Ring-tailed Lemurs for the BODY PART pic.  I think they have a lot of cool body parts from their noses to their cool tails and they have they have the most expressive eyes.


On WEDNESDAY this week, we took my mother out to a newish restaurant in Middletown, Ohio, where I grew up.   The restaurant is called Stained and it is adjacent to a stained glass studio.  I would say that the restaurant is decorated in Old Church Chic.  It's beautiful.  And I had a very nice salad...probably the most healthy meal I had while we were away.


Falling water is MUSIC to my ears.  This was taken at the Fort Wayne, Indiana, Botanical Conservatory, a very pleasant place to spend an afternoon.


GUESS WHAT THIS IS?  The answer will be at the end.


I took a MIRROR IMAGE portrait of my daughter Carrie and me in a gazing ball at the Fort Wayne Botanical Conservatory.


And here's the answer to guess what this is.



And here's what I have to say about these.  I didn't get to try these, because I bought them for my sister, but I bet they are good.  They come from the best attraction in northern Ohio after the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  Grandpa's Cheesebarn is a must stop and see if you are passing through northern Ohio on I-71 and are anywhere close to Ashland, Ohio.  It's a cheeselover's dream and there are many more fun things to sample and buy there. And don't forget to check out Sweetie's where you can buy such delights as chocolate covered Fritos.

my father loved pickled eggs, but he wouldn't have gone for the jalapenos. :)

the lemurs are too cute.

Brian King said...

The lemurs are hilarious! They're looking quite content. Love the shot of you and your daughter!

I'm quite a progressive water-but I'm not sure about hose eggs-I like both-now I'm curious! That restaurant looks fabulous. I too live the sound of falling water. Nice set

Chatty Crone said...

Oh my gosh I love your photos - my favorite is the first - those are lemurs - right? They are so sweet (I think.) sandie

Lydia Martin said...

Sounds like you had a fantastic time! Beautifully edited photos and I would not have guessed re the eggs! Lemurs really do have intriguing 'parts'

Savannah McQueen said...

I guess pickled eggs. Is that close enough? Love the reflection image.

Nicki said...

gurl, I thought for a moment that you grabbed a picture of me and mine following a good night out with that first shot. I'm pretty sure we look pretty similar slumped over with blood-shot eyes. Pretty sure. Those eggs do sound interesting. Glad you have a good visit to Ohio. Nicely done on the hunt words. (I have actually written down the words for next week - so hopefully I'll get my act together - hopefully!!)

Those Lemurs are so adorable. Gotta love those cool looking tails too.
Pickled Jalapeno Eggs...interesting.
Lovely shot of the water too.

Anu said...

Oooh, I love lemurs, they are intriguing. Your mirror image is awesome.

Honey Mommy said...

I love the lemurs, the musical water, and especially your mirror image photo. It is perfect in black and white!

Not sure if I would go for the jalapeño eggs, but I am not really an adventurous eater!

Debbie said...

When I was bar manager I got a hankerin' for pickled eggs and bologna, you can keep the hot peppers! Your eye is perfect on these shots! Way to go, Barb.

most interesting!
I live not too far from where some of your photos were taken! Middletown is about 45 minutes away. My cousin lives in Ft. Wayne. Next time I visit I;ll have to go to the conservatory!
wonderful photos! I think water is music, too.

It may be a partnership, or it might be a option the queen requirements to make in the close to long term.
Following all, it is so inconvenient to have to disappoint all of those individuals when you change how you see yourself.
