Sue the Oddball – Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge Week 4


A few years ago I took my first trip to Boston for work.  While I was there, I went on a duck tour (not a tour to learn about water fowl, but a tour of the city on a restored WWII amphibious army truck).   Now, I’m no stranger to duck rides having gone on them a few times in Wisconsin Dells, but I was totally new to Boston and the duck tour was a fun, quick way to have my first lesson.

I took several photos on the tour (most of them fuzzy) but this is by far my favorite, because it’s ME!  In my yellow duck!  I took this photo of our reflection in one of the buildings.  You can see me – I’m over the word “Boston” with a camera in front of my face.

Such a tourist!!

Besides snapping photos of dubious value, I learned a bit about the history of Boston and we drove past some amazing looking downtown shops.  My rep had to physically restrain me as we passed a window filled with gorgeous handbags.  Which I’m kinda still mad about but whatever.

Have you ever been tempted to leap from a moving vehicle for a snazzy handbag?  Do you like to say “snazzy”?  If you say “snazzy” over and over again, does it start to sound weird?  Of did it sound weird to begin with and you think I’m a freak?

Cee’s Fun Oddly Industrial Foto Challenge


Hellooooooo!

This week, I am mixing my challenges together for one supreme entry!

Below is something both oddball and industrial, so this is my single entry for two of Cee’s photo challenges – Fun Foto and Odd Ball.  Maybe I should have made it in black and white and then I could have added it to three of them!  You know, I just tried it in black and white and it looks kind of cool….

Anyway, here is my entry – this was taken a couple of summers ago at one of our small local lakes.

Lily Lake, WI

WHAT THE HECK AM I????

I think I know what it is, but if anyone wants to take a stab at it’s true identity, let me know in the comments!  Be sure to check out the other entries by clicking here and here.

Meanwhile, I will be snuggled under a few blankets, dreaming about this warm summer day.

Sue the Oddball: Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge Week 33


I like to take pictures of my feet.  I really don’t know why.  I’m not a fan of my feet in particular, although I do love shoes.  So for my odd ball entry this week, I am entering myself.  Or at least my feet.

My feet love to be comfortable, so I am always in search of fun but comfy shoes. I found this pair of Keen’s over the summer.  Love them!

 

New shoes!

Once every couple of years I get to travel to New England for work, to hang out with my reps and hob nob with customers.  My second trip out there, my friend, the Divine Miss J, took us on an adventure to the Sea Ketch restaurant in New Hampshire, where we learned the correct pronunciation of the word “haddock”, sang loud renditions of Adele’s “Someone Like You” and hung out in a biker bar.  Oh and bought fried bread on the boardwalk.

Right before Dave and I went on our vacation to Tennessee a couple of summers ago, I needed a pedicure so bad, that I took a picture of my feet afterwards to record the momentous occasion for all posterity.

Pedicure!  Pretty feet ready for vacation!

That same year – my feet spent a lot of time riding on top of our kayaks.  It was a delicious summer.

The picture below is the first time I took a picture of my feet.  Those are virgin feet right there.

Not my feet here, but still in the spirit of the oddball.  When Brett Favre went to the Vikings, many members of my family were bitter and angry.  Except my brother.  He remained a Brett fan, and was rewarded with this Christmas present that year.

My friend Kay and I rode in the “Race the Lake” bicycle race in 2013 – 90 miles around Lake Winnebago.  Lots of new experiences, including drafting in a large group of about 100 riders.  I was feeling pretty full of myself when I took this picture.

In the winter, I love to wear wool socks.  Alpaca wool socks are my absolute favorite.

Of course, in the winter, I tend not to keep up with my grooming…

Not my feet again.  These are my son’s feet, taken in the Sears Tower (now the Willis Tower).  I was not amused to receive this text.

My friend Meghan and I ran in the Run or Dye 5k last fall.  This is the aftermath.  My socks turned colors for weeks afterwards.
