I Spy - Old


High on a hill was a lonely Spy-er
Lay ee odl lay ee odl lay hee hoo
She had a co-host, right behind her
Lay ee odl lay ee odl-oo

Christy in a town that was quite remote heard
Lay ee odl lay ee odl lay hee hoo
Calmly and clear from Da-zee's throat heard
Lay ee odl lay ee odl-oo

Soon I Spy was born, with a gleaming gloat heard
Lay ee odl lay ee odl lay hee hoo
Others followed along with the girls and goatherd
Lay ee odl lay ee odl-oo

Caught you all singing, didn't I.  Well, come on along, snap those photos. with any type of camera and link on up.  It's the best thing since, well since chocolate chip cookies.  We give you 2 prompts every week.  This weeks prompts are OLD and YOUR CHOICE.

Always remember, I am of the sort that thinks outside the box.  Alright?  Alright!


Road construction is getting OLD.  Like, hold me back I'm gonna hurt them old.  Orange and white cones everywhere.  Everyday making us go in a different pattern.  

Having the construction equipment always have the right of way is getting OLD

Having them get in front of me on one road, and deciding they are going to be in front of me till the end of time is getting OLD!!!!
But enough of my rant of construction getting old.

Here is a little guy that is actually OLDER than me.  When my mom was pregnant with me, she got this little elephant because, well, being a woman with a baby in your belly you will understand, you get to the point where you feel like a big OLD elephant.  I think it is the cutest thing ever.  And it is now mine.

Here is a different view of her face.  Look how wonky they painted the eyes.  Yeah, I felt that way being pregnant too. 


I'm sure you have all heard about The Hunger Games.  And if you haven't, then you have been living under a rock.  My friend Amber, and her sister, went to a Hunger Games party the night of the opening.  

Look how amazingly close her little sister looks like Katniss.

Here are next weeks prompts

I'm thinking that Looking To Your Left is going to be full of all types of possibilities.  Why, because all of you can snap a photo of something to the left of you.

  1. Road construction gets old very fast. I love the elephant. It's cool. I so want that elephant....Oh yeah, back to business. You are not kidding that she looks like her. Wow!!!

  2. That elephant so so awesome and even though there is construction, the mountains are beautiful!

  3. Yes tutti frutti, you are loved. So is your pink elephant, although I always thought pink elephants are what danced around if you had too much to drink....
    I'm not the camera bug, but I'm gonna help you out here, maybe get others to do your thing with ya. You're my awesome blog peep this month:) Now I gotta get some sleep so's I can go road trippin Saturday. I'll be going with this totally misguided woman who gets me:) cause I'm even more misguided! mwahaha. Ok, I'm tired....

  4. Yes I did sing along. Damn you. Kidding.
    That elephant is awesome!!!
    And yes she does look like her! Uncanny!!

  5. But what great scenery you have to view while being detoured!!

    The elephant is cute, and very special to you, I'm sure. :)

    I got to see the movie this week and loved it - very close to the book. Yes, she really does look a lot like her.

  6. Yep, those orange construction thingies are old for sure. But having said that, many roads near where I live haven't seen enough construction in the past few years.

    Cute elephant!

  7. Jake's right. I love your blog. Hope you don't mind if I add you to the "group". I'm coveting that darling little elephant. :)

  8. Ahhh the road construction has been old here for a while. They are widening our interstate from Lexington all the way to the state border in 6 miles at a time. Yeah great fun. Holy cow she does look like that girl.. that's freaky.

  9. Thanks for stopping by and look forward to *seeing* you again!

    Great post –and Happy Easter!

  10. Wow that pink elephant is old!

    Constant road works in the UK get very irritating I agree.

    Sorry I'm late again, I'm not on my usual computer at the moment and everything is taking me bit longer to get used to.
