Inanimate Yellow Me (and the WWC!)

Yahoo it's that time again! The Weekly Words Challenge (WWC), which is brought to us by the extremely animated Tink of Pickled Beef. This week's WWC theme words are: Inanimate
and Yellow. Hope is Inanimate, and I hope you participate too, but If you haven't joined the fun and want to, go
here to Tink's instructions for details.

I'll start with Inanimate. If you think about the textbook definition of Inanimate, it's pretty much this:

in·an·i·mate (n-n-mt)
1. Not having the qualities associated with active, living organisms. See Synonyms at dead.
2. Not animated or energetic; dull.
3. Grammar Belonging to the class of nouns that stand for nonliving things: The word car is inanimate; the word dog is animate.

But I also associate it with other things you can't see, like emotions and thoughts, etc. Here are a few of my Inanimate things!

Small, stone feet

The mannequins and clothing in this window are Inanimate objects.

Although it looks almost alive and drinkable, this
building wall painting of a Budweiser is totally Inanimate!

Somewhere she's alive, but here hanging from a downtown wall she's Inanimate!

Elvis may live in your heart, but it's not something I can see,
so if you do have an "Inner Elvis", it's probably Inanimate.

Now for Yellow... Fall has its share of brilliant yellow, and of course I included a bit of that here, but there are other yellows in my WWC collection this week too!

This messy collection of cables forms quite an interesting yellow pattern.

Yellow cross and yellow trees, lovely!

Mom's yellow flowers are almost blinding!!

This is just an extra really, as there is only one little spot of yellow(tree). I just thought the view looking down on this was cool, and you can see from above the display of fall foliage.

And that's all she wrote really for me this week on the Weekly Words Challenge. We're counting down 2 days until we all make gluttons of ourselves at the Thanksgiving table, and I'm looking forward to a nice dinner at my parents' house... Hope you guys all have plans to enjoy some family time too... or at least be with those that you love. If you can't be with those you love, hopefully your near some people with minimal body odor! :)

If you have a moment, please give my survey a whirl... Happy Tuesday my lovely readers!!

Your photos get better and better, girl. That one of the stone feet is awesome! I really like the yellow leaves and the flowers too. LOVELY.

Well played! Hope your Thanksgiving goes well. :)

Nice photos. I like the feet one too, and the trees (close up). I also did your survey, but have only been reading here for about two weeks. :/

P.s. Happy Thanksgiving to you as well.

Great shots this week, Auntie. I love the budweiser bottle, and although my preferred beer is Heineken, that is my size beer bottle for sure!

Bottoms up!
