CEE’S ODD BALL CHALLENGE 2015 – WEEK 10

For 25 years I worked in an office. (Some of you might know this so hang in a minute…)  After a healthy dose of downsizing, I decided I’d go to college (natural progression, right?) After graduating, I went into teaching (a life long dream, and I’m getting to my point, I swear!)

I taught Developmental Kindergarten, Kindergarten, and First Grade.  So after retiring (here it comes) I knew I couldn’t take on a part time gig without having the words, “FUN” and “KIDS” and “PLAY” involved.  So now I ‘sit’ a little genius, and on no school day, his bro.

Sometimes, girls (and their charges) just wanna have fu-un. 😉

ZRobotMy buddy wanted to be a robot for the day.  Fun!

Sometimes we make it up as we go along

We made Lego names for an Instagram Challenge I entered.   More fun.

And, although this is a moving Odd Ball, still, fun, Fun, FUN!

My friend and I invite you to visit with Cee for more on Odd Ball pix.  Click on the icon below.

CEE’S FUN FOTO CHALLENGE – CATCHING PEOPLE UNAWARE

Talk about unaware!  I was just that – unaware that I had any candid photo.  Just goes to show you.  You never know what you have til you take a good, hard look.

These first two photos are pictures of my little charge.  I watch this cutie five days a week, and if you’re familiar with my blog, you know that he is not shy when it comes to the camera.  But, as luck would have it, I got him in his unawares. 😉029

This boy is all about learning, and planets and how the human body works, and he soaks it up like a sponge. Someday, I’ll share a video of him teaching me about space.  Precious!

This gentleman just looked very interesting to me.  I practically never take candid shots, but I do remember doing this one.  I was being very sneaky, and I felt guilty as hell!  Just call me Double Oh Doofus.  (I shot this in B&W, hence, the B&W.)

This photo was taken in the same diner as the gentlemen above.  She was the hostess and that hair do, in my eyes, made her the hostess with the mostess.  I LOVE THAT DO! Color and all.

Well, that’s it for my covert operations.  Slip on over to Cee’s and spy with your little eye, a little more on the clueless unaware.  Click on the icon below…cees-fun-foto

CEE’S ODD BALL CHALLENGE 2015 – WEEK 4

His mom says he’s a goof.  I say he’s an adorable odd ball.

And what’s more appropriate for an Odd Ball Challenge than a five year old odd ball of fire surrounded by colorful plastic balls in a giant ball pit.

Now, ladies and gentlemen,  find waldo…

That one was a breeze.

Now this…ballpit 2

OK.  That wasn’t all that tough either.  Still, a little odd. Wouldn’t ya say?

CEE’S BLACK AND WHITE PHOTO CHALLENGE – SMALL SUBJECTS

I missed the boat on Cee’s “BIG” black and white challenge, so I thought I’d jump on the “small” band wagon.

TRAVEL THEME – MULTICOLORED

When you work (hang out) with a four year old, 5 days a week, you are bound to run into a little splash of color. And you get to play – A LOT!

See…

I spotted the Bella balloon and couldn’t resist, since that was the alternate name I chose for one of Cee’s Share Your World questions this week.

And the last is a plug for The Garden State – why I don’t know since our taxes exceed most other states. Maybe if I advertise NJ enough, our illustrious governor will cut back a little. Ah. No. Probably not.
