A Word A Week Photograph Challenge: Sign

Once a week Sue dips into her old English Oxford dictionary and picks a word on the page that it falls open at.  The challenge is to post a photograph, poem, story – whatever the genre you like best to describe of what that word means to you.

I had been wondering for a while if or how I would ever be able to use this particular photo. It still makes me laugh. It was early 1976, I was moving from Kentucky to Arizona — in an MG Midget convertible! Everything I was taking with me was stuffed into the tiny two-seater and strapped to the little luggage rack on the back. Yep, didn’t have much! But when I saw this sign, I had to have a picture of it. I can’t even remember what kind of cheap little camera I had then. The colors (along with the picture) are fading. I suppose if some day I learn a program like Photoshop I can do something with it!

The following photo was taken not too long ago on a visit to Old Town in Kissimmee, Florida. This sign was on the side of one of the buildings and it really caught my eye. Talk about a memory rush!!

The video, I believe, speaks for itself. It’s the mood I’m in while putting this together.  Gee, I wonder why! I won’t answer that here; that’s another music video!

Sonel’s Corner Photo Editing Challenge: Song Title

The year was 1967. I was a senior in high school. There was so much fabulous music then — and it’s still popular today. I did like this song then and still like it now even though I could never claim it as a complete favorite. But I heard this song recently and it has not left my head since! And now Sonel has given me the chance to put it to paper and maybe get it out of my head! For those of you who are young, you may not figure out right away what I’ve photographed!

I’ve been Feelin Groovy (59th Street Bridge Song, Art Garfunkel and Paul Simon, 1967) with a little Laugh In thrown in for fun! (And, yes, I watched the original episodes of Laugh In, not reruns, and I have them on DVD!) Enjoy!

FEELIN GROOVY!
