A GALLERY OF WAYS

Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge: 2014 #24

Welcome everyone to Cee’s Which Way Challenge. This challenge is about the roads, walks, trails, and rails we travel as we move from place to place. You can walk, climb, drive, ride, as long as the way is visible.


Trains and tracks, trucks and roads. Boats on rivers, in harbor, on the ocean. Planes in the air. Going every which way.

OH! THE PLACES YOU’LL GO, THE THINGS YOU’LL SEE!

Share Your World – 2014 Week 48

What is your favorite toppings on pizza?

We eat a lot of pizza these days, which is funny because Garry didn’t used to like it much. Times have changed. Mostly, I prefer veggies. Mushrooms, onions, peppers. Extra tomatoes and a lot of cheese. I think Garry would prefer something more carnivorous, but he’s being nice to me (and our hearts!) these days :-)

I want to learn more about …

Everything! History, science, art, literature … I love learning and with rare exceptions, everything is interesting. Moreover, my motto remains:

Knowledge is never a waste of time. 

What are three places you have enjoyed visiting?

Jerusalem. Dublin. London. But to be fair, I’ve enjoyed pretty much every place I’ve ever visited, from the most obscure little towns in the middle of nowhere, to the biggest cities on Earth. Knowledge is never a waste of time … and travelling is always fun as long as you dwell on the adventure and not the hassles.

Do you prefer eating the frosting of the cake or the cupcake first?

I don’t like frosting. Too sweet. I usually scrape off frosting on pretty much everything. When I bake cakes, I put a little powdered sugar on them for decoration, but usually won’t ice them.

IT WAS THE WORST OF TIMES. IT WAS THE BEST OF TIMES. NO, IT WAS THE WORST OF TIMES. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? IT WAS THE BEST OF TIMES.

“Oh shut up. Can’t you kids ever stop squabbling back there? I’m going to put both of you on a time out, I swear I am.”

“But MOM, he TOUCHED ME!”

“Loretta, I am going to touch you and then you will have reason to cry. Joey, leave your sister alone.”

Voice of boy child with strong adenoidal whine: “But MOOOOOOM, she’s taking up the whole back seat and I can’t help touching her. And why can’t I touch her? She touches me all the time.”

“She does what??”

“I do not”

“Do too.”

“DO NOT!@!”

{Long pause.}

In a whisper: “Do too.”

“Do not.”

A booming baritone from the front seat, the Voice of Dad, speaks: “One more word out of either of you and I will stop this car and you will both be crying and you’ll have a damned good reason.”

{Whispers}

“Do not.”

“Do too.”

{Pause, pause, pause}

The sound of vomiting fills the car along with a sickening and pungent odor.

“Ew. Yuk. MOM he barfed all over me! Make him clean it up.”

Chorus:

“ARE WE THERE YET?”


This show has been brought to you by Happy Family, the breakfast cereal that’s got it all … sugar, food dye, trans-fat, and gluten. And no, we aren’t there yet.

It WAS the worst of times. Really it was.

DRIVING

Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge: 2014 #22

This challenge is dedicated to the paths, roads, rails and waterways by which we travel. We are a nation of roads. To our bones, we love our cars, love being in control of our travel.

Today, I celebrate roads and cars.

A LITTLE TRAVELIN’ MUSIC AND PICTURES

Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge: 2014 #20 I thought I’d start with a little traveling’ music. Because there’s something about the open road and music playing. You want to tap your feet, but you can’t, because you’ve got those pedals. So you drive faster — if you can and traffic allows — until the sound of the […]

SO FAR, SO GOOD

Trio no. 4 – Today you can write about anything, in whatever genre or form, but your post must include a speeding car, a phone call, and a crisp, bright morning. (Wildcard: you can swap any of the above for a good joke.) I’m such a good sport I’m going to give you an anecdote and […]

THE DEVIL’S IN THE DETAILS

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Vehicle Details If the devil is in the details, so are the best pictures … at least when you are talking about vehicles. Old trucks. Rusty with age and honor. But wait! What about … a shiny antique car? Oh, here’s one! And motorcycles … a few of them maybe?
