WHAT GOES ON BEHIND YOUR FENCE... TAW's FENCES CHALLENGE...


You're the rain on the roof in the summer 
You're the leaves in the fall changing color 
You're the whisper I hear in the thunder 
On my side of the fence 
You're the reason my heart's beating faster 
You're the tears falling down from the laughter 
You're the only one I'm after 
So I ain't looking over fences 
trying to find a better view 
My search for all that ended 
when I first laid eyes on you

ORIGAMI EVOLUTION... SPA's EVOLUTION CHALLENGE...


“What is Man? 
Man is a noisome bacillus 
whom Our Heavenly Father created 
because he was disappointed in the monkey.” 
Mark Twain 

 “If evolution really works, 
how come mothers only have two hands?”

PREACH TIME...


Try to remember the kind of September 
When life was slow and oh so mellow. 
Try to remember the kind of September 
When grass was green and grain was yellow. 
Try to remember the kind of September 
When you were a tender and callow fellow. 
Try to remember and if you remember then follow 
follow.

IMPLEMENTS OF TORTURE... DM's FLICKr CHALLENGE...


When I think back 
On all the crap 
I learned in high school 
It's a wonder I can think at all 
And though my lack of education 
Hasn't hurt me none 
I can read the writing on the wall
~
Paul Simon

I marvel at the fact that when I was in school
most teachers could take
the joy of learning something new
and turn it into 6 hours of daily torture.

HOORAY FOR HOLLYWOOD... T3M's HOLLYWOOD CHALLENGE...


Hooray for Hollywood 
Where you're terrific, if you're even good 
Where anyone at all from TV's Lassie 
To Monroe's chassis is equally understood 
Go out and try your luck, 
you might be Donald Duck 
Hooray for Hollywood

OCTOPUS's GARDEN... DIGITAL WHISPER's ABSTRACT CHALLENGE...


I'd like to be under the sea 
In an octopus' garden in the shade 
He'd let us in, knows where we've been 
In his octopus' garden in the shade 
I'd ask my friends to come and see 
An octopus' garden with me 
I'd like to be under the sea 
In an octopus' garden in the shade

I HAVE TO HAND IT TO YOU... SPA's HAND CHALLENGE...


With a little love, and some tenderness  
We'll walk upon the water 
 We'll rise above this mess 
With a little peace, and some harmony 
 We'll take the world together 
 We'll take 'em by the hand 
 'Cause I've got a hand for you 
 'Cause I wanna run with you
Want you to hold my hand 
 Maybe we can't change the world 
but I wanna love you the best that, 
 The best that I can.

AND THE WHALE JUMPED OVER THE MOON... DM's FLICKr CHALLENGE...


Somewhere there's music 
How faint the tune 
Somewhere there's heaven 
How high the moon 
The darkest night would shine 
If you would come to me soon 
Until you will, how still my heart 
How high the moon

KEEPER OF HER HEART... T3M's CARD CHALLENGE...


The Queen of Hearts 
She made some tarts, 
 All on a summer's day; 
The Knave of Hearts 
He stole those tarts, 
 And took them clean away....
The one eyed Jack 
He brought them back
But kept her heart they say.

 At the ballet

SEASONS RUSHING BY... SPA's SEASONS CHALLENGE...


And the seasons they go round and round 
And the painted ponies go up and down 
We're captive on the carousel of time 
We can't return we can only look behind 
From where we came 
And go round and round and round 
In the circle game

SERENITY... DM's FLICKr CHALLENGE...


At the end of the day 
When the sun leaves me to my fear and pain 
And the stars appear to shine on my dismay 
And I pray my tears be a cleansing rain 
I know I can smile 
If just for a while 
I've got a song

THE HAZARDS OF ONLINE DATING... DM's FLICKr CHALLENGE...



Here I go again, 
I hear those trumpets blow again. 
All aglow again,

Starry-eyed again, 
takin' a chance on love.

Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'

 'Till I'm free 
Fly through the revolution

RAINBOW AT MIDNIGHT... TAW's RAINBOW CHALLENGE...


You're just a picture 
You're an image caught in time 
We're a lie, you and I 
We're words without a rhyme 
no sign of the mornin' comin' 
You've been left on your own 
Like a rainbow in the dark 
Just a rainbow in the dark

Under the sea 
Under the sea

Full time to floatin' 
Under the sea

SEND IN THE CLOWNS... DIGITAL WHISPER's CLOWN CHALLENGE...


Be a clown, be a clown 
All the world loves a clown 
Act the fool, play the calf 
And you'll always have the last laugh 
Wear the cap and the bells 
And you'll rate with all the great swells 
If you become a doctor, 
folks'll face you with dread 
If you become a dentist, 
they'll be glad when you're dead 
You'll get a bigger hand 
if you can stand on your head 
Be a clown, be a clown, be a clown

RED DOOR... SPA's YOUR FAVORITE COLOR CHALLENGE...


“Red is the color of life. 
It's blood, passion, rage. 
Beginnings and violent end. 
Red is the color of love. 
Beating hearts and hungry lips. 
Roses, Valentines, cherries. 
Red is the color of shame. 
Crimson cheeks and spilled blood. 
Broken hearts, opened veins. 
A burning desire to return to white.” 
~
