A Smile makes the Rounds

Week 46 at Thematic Photograph is up at Carmi's Written Inc. He's into round things this week. I thought about posing for a portrait, but my roundness is not something I appreciate.

Instead, I chose these two photos taken at the beach in March. Buttercup was sharing her happiness by building smiling sandcastles. We were interrupted by a heavy rain shower so her construction efforts were cut short.

Grandpa could not resist her happy ROUND faces in the sand buckets - so, to him I give the credit for my entry this week.




Visit or participate -- either one. Carmi will be glad to have you stop by and comment.

CUTE.

The kids had so much fun at the beach. We're ready to go back already.

Smile and the whole world smiles with you? Sometimes they do and sometimes they don't. Have you ever noticed that some people don't enjoy you smiling at them? I smile anyway!

Oooh Oooh Oooh! Im back again (I know amazing twice in one day!) But seriously I just read your poem and comments to the kids and they came back with....

Beans, Beans the musical fruit
The more you eat the more you toot!
The more you toot the better you feel
So eat your beans with every meal!

Ahem so Pamela, are you calling me a "toot" (One has to realise that aussies are not so polite, (they really say Fart down here!)

It goes like this down here...

Beans Beans they're good for your heart
The more you eat, the more you fart
The more you fart the better you feel,
So eat your beans with every meal!

I know we are so uncivilized down here! We do come from convicts you know! Oh dear hang on! My mum came here when she was a kid, (her family were upper crust pommies, I think she may have been adopted or something as she is not so snooty! and so did my husband, he came here when he was one! Woops its all my dads fault! His family go way back!

Dear Pamela ~~ Great entry about round shapes. Love the faces the little girl made. Thanks for your comments on my blog and I am so glad you got a few laughs -- "Welcome to the Neighborhood. It is amazing how we can live near so many people and only know a few of them.
Take care, Love, Merle.
