Scatterday Week 16

Well, K was a bit tricky I thought! Out came the dictionary for a bit of inspiration.


For the category of Dangerous I chose KOMODO DRAGON. I took this photo a few years back when we were on holiday in Sydney, and had spent the day at Toronga Park Zoo. If I have my facts right, the most dangerous aspect of the Komodo Dragon is the masses of nasty bacteria in its mouth. So if the dragon bites something and the victim doesn't die of the bite, it's very likely to die of septicaemia a week later. Lovely.

For Blue I found a tiny little blue KENNEL in my mum's collection of miniatures. The design looks suspiciously like a little cottage with shingles and a painted window and fence, but as it came complete with a wee doggie I presume it must be a kennel, albeit a whimsical one.

And finally, the category of In My Neighbourhood. This is was a tough one and it has me puzzling for a few days. At first I was going to zoom down and photograph the local Kentucky Fried Chicken store, but then it struck me as I was driving through this roundabout a few streets from home. The local council have planted a beautiful display of KANGAROO PAWS in the centre of the roundabout. And as it's a bit hard to drive and take photos at the same time, I asked Steve to detour through it when we were going out, so I could snap it from the passenger seat. Why? he said - because it's a K photo of course!! He looked at me incredulously and is quite convinced I am insane. :-)

Next week we need to wrap our heads around the letter D, and the categories of Sewing, Vehicles and Touchy Feely. I hope the last category makes sense - what I mean is choose something you like the feel of.

Three totally different 'K' things from what I have, love those Kangaroo... Paws do all roundabouts have them???
I found 'K' a doodle this week but every time I get the new weeks Scatterday I panic a little... Who in the dickens came up with 'Touchy Feely'??? LOL

I'm glad you explained Touchy Feely...! Clever picks you have this week - the Komodo Dragon's a particularly clever dangerous thing.

Yes, yes - all very good. And you are making some good use of the Hippie Quilt letters. What about next week?!!?!?

Great work Dy. Now I would never have thought of the dragon, I have a nice picture of one but I call them big goannas (or perhaps they are two different things). The little kennel is very cute and the kangaroo paws excellent.........now I could have used that I have taken some great pictures recently of the wild kangaroo paws in the park in our neighbourhood.

Great work getting your DH to drive while you snap - I'm partial to a bit of "drive-by shooting" myself at times when there are scatterday items to collect!
