I sat down at my computer to compose this post and it made me think: Why do I do so many Odd Ball posts? Well, I’m not going to worry about it.
Here are some odd shots of some ‘decor’ around town. The town slogan: “Collingswood. The place you want to be.” Or something like that.
I got a look at my 5 figure tax bill recently. I’m not so sure anymore.
I was real conflicted about it, as DeNiro said in Analyze This. (P.S. This movie is an oldie but a goodie – kind of like me. If you haven’t seen it, it’s good for a chuckle – kind of like me.)
Boss Paul Vitti: I wasn’t really gonna whack you.
Dr. Ben Sobel: Paul…
Boss Paul Vitti: Okay, I was gonna whack you. But I was real conflicted about it.
Anywho… Crocheting? Knitting? Combo of the two? Is it art? Is it tacky? It certainly is Odd Ball.

I love knitting and crocheting and yarn (lots and lots of yarn) so if I like it, it’s probably tacky. But who cares! Bring it on! And 5 figure tax bill?? Ouch. I think I would pass out.
Why do you think you don’t see me much around here. I’m passing out left and right! And why don’t we see your K&C? Bring it on! 😉
That does explain a lot! As for my yarn projects – I generally lose count and have crooked edges or scarves that curl or holes where I’ve dropped a stitch. I haven’t picked up needles in a few years – too busy biking, hiking or blogging. 🙂
My crocheting looks about the same as that. Hiking biking blogging busy it’s all good. Have a great weekend Sue whatever you do.
Odd for sure!
well I think I really love the oddball challenge as one of the top ones – because of eclectic posts like this – and the benches are my fav – and o my goodness – analyze this is truly a classic and it is on my top 50 list for sure – thanks for the quote….
and dr. sobel at the meeting is my fav scene…. but such a good movie G
You DID see it! Yeah, baby. Funny flick. Thanks, again, for the kindness. 😉
and well this is bad – but my boys really enjoyed it too – they were like 12 and 14 – and I know – some swearing and all that – but gotta do what ya gotta do.. ha! and those wedding scenes – oh G – now I need to see this fun movie.
Enjoy. Popcorn anyone?
Just the person I was looking for! I come bearing presents 🙂
And how nice of somebody to crochet those for my bony bum 🙂 Love the tree!
I went by and looked. Thank you. I really like the blue ones in the middle second shelf from the bottom. So pretty. It gives me an idea maybe I should have a curio cabinet to put mine in. Or at least I should take a picture of all of them together if I can fit them in one shot. Or maybe a panoramic view. ❤️👍
Such stunning crochet work Gemma and I just love your shots! So colourful and full of life. That Hot chocolate bar sounds like just the place to visit in the winter. 😀 ♥
Thank you, Sonel. Ahhhh. But in the summer they have frozen hot chocolate. Soooooo delicious.
That does sound delicious Gemma. 😀 ♥
I sure like the colors you found this week. Wonderful selection 🙂
Thank you, Cee. I like the scarf around the clock. Except I was there at 9 o’clock. Not 8 o’clock like it indicates. Apparently the daylight savings people had the day off.
I LOVE the tree blanket with all the little birds sitting on it. When it gets dark, maybe sneak over there and grab it for me. It would be PERFECT on my bed. It will give me happy dreams. …or maybe I should eat bananas before bed…? 🙂
Haha. Don’t wait for me to ‘grab’ anything. That one and the heart bench were my favorite, if I have a favorite. If I were you I’d go with the banana. Somebody has to test the theory.
yep, cool odd ball photos 🙂
Thanks. I think. 😉
You do odd ball so well, Gemma. What a bright and friendly looking place! I love all the crochet work. The benches look nice and comfy for my bony bum too. 🙂
You and Jo and your bony bums. I AM SO JEALOUS. And I’m going to take “doing odd ball so well” as a compliment.
Yes, your doing oddball so well might be misconstrued ….. LOL!!!!! And I like the bench too – good stuff! And, AND, I seem to have lost 2 pounds this week, but this culinininary sinful weekend might reverse that!!! A xxx
I did too!!!! But Jeff’s home for the weekend and it’s already going downhill!!!! Be strong! ❤️
Going downhill sounds good to me >>> what else are weekends for?????????? 🙂 🙂 🙂
Giant cheeseburger with bacon, jalopeno and fries. Thoughts would have a heart attack! (Lucky I didnt!!!)
I usually skip over the oddball posts but I have noticed, that for you, it is a a peak inside your world and so I look for yours. It also has me thinking I should read more of them from others.
Yes, it usually is. I hadn’t noticed that. Kind of an extension of Share Your World, huh? Thanks for checking in. One of my Oddball characters, Abby, ( find her here – https://firstandfabulous.wordpress.com/2015/02/13/cees-odd-ball-challenge-2015-week-6/ ) has been taken off the front lawn. I don’t know what happened to her and I am tempted to knock on “her” door to ask what happened to her. I was wanting to make her a “regular” but… I hope they just took her in to spruce her up, but I often wondered how she never got taken off the lawn. Last I saw, she had a yellow rain slicker on and was fairing rather well with this nasty cold weather. I hope the township didn’t tell the folks that they are not allowed to have her on the lawn. Can they do that????? Again, why am we paying these insane taxes! Just for garbage pick up?!?!? They don’t even do that right! (OK thanks for the sounding board.) 😉
That’s what I am here for 🙂
