Weekly Words Challenge #19!

Nothing else to call it really, and not been very witty. I (guess) you guys have noticed that I didn't post all weekend. Well, I thought about it, but I had nothing interesting to bring to the table. I tried to think of feelings and ideas or anything I really had on my mind, but came up blank. Hope you'll forgive me. I will post more today and this week. I'll get back in the swing!!

Today's Weekly Words Challenge, brought to us as always by the Fabuloso Tink of Pickled Beef, is themed "Envy" and "Triangle". I admittedly dug into my archive of photos from fall, which were not that long ago, but still MINE... and brought to you the following items... I'll do better next week!!

Triangle(s)...

Always capturing signs and windows, etc from Restaurants downtown... This bar called "Swig" has a very cool logo, which does in fact include "Triangles"!


What would a Memphis photo be without the Pyramid?? Memphis' ultimate Triangle!


Envy...
I'm completely envious of this guy, out on the lake so peaceful and serene, in the chilly foggy morning... Ahhh.

I'm envious of the sky and its beauty... its ability to become anything it wants to, with its brilliant colors and lovely cloud formations.

Bonus!!! :)
Right along Beale St. near Second, this statue immortalizes The King.



Aside from that, the weekend was pretty boring. A friend of mine came by for a visit on Saturday night and we just hung out for a while, then yesterday I went down for a visit with my Mom and Dad, and all of my sisters showed up so we had a little family reunion. It was nice... Weird that it was just Mom and Dad (as much as he participated, because he doesn't hang in the kitchen that much, mainly watches T.V. Land)... and just all of her daughters... lol

Now it's back to the grind with the next holiday being "Presidents Day" in February... The year is already popping isn't it?? It too, will be over before we even bat an eye. Holidays are cool though, I enjoy any day that we get paid and don't have to come in. Who wouldn't??

Ok well that's it for me today, and I will do my best to bring more enjoyment, philosophical, comedic or otherwise throughout the week... Check back when you can!! I miss all of you when you don't come around. I will try to blog visit myself as soon as I get a bit more free time today... I promise!!! :)

That "Swig" logo is so freakin' cool. I wish I had created it! I love the man on the boat in the foggy lake too. Every morning I pass people shrimping and fishing off our bridge and I sigh. Because seriously, what do they do for a living that allows them such a luxury?!

As I was driving around this weekend I thought to myself "If I lived in Memphis I could go take a picture of the Pyramid for "triangle." And then I thought "I bet Jackie does that." And then I thought "If she doesn't I'll tease her about it."

So, you don't get teased today Jackie. ;-)

Glad you posted though. I was getting worried. I thought I was going to have to come down there and see what the heck was up!

I got kind of envious of that guy out on the lake myself. How wonderfully peaceful that looks.

Excellent pictures, even if they were from the archives ;)

I'm envious of the dude on the lake too. I need a nap. Great pictures. :) Wish my weekend was a lot slower.

The Swig logo is awesome! Didn't know Triangles are famous in Memphis! :D

that lake looks cold!

i would envy him only if he had a cup of hot cocoa, a warm blanket, and a good friend with him!

I can't believe President's Day is almost here. So much to do and get ready for like... furniture sales. ;)

what the f*** is the paramid for?

I doubt it has an ancient pharoah mummified inside it - or is that a missing piece of my history education?
