Invitation: Play Fun Monday on February 9


Please join me next Monday as I host this weeks Fun.

The subject: Show me in pictures or tell me in words what defines the place where you live.

I want to leave the interpretation open to include any possibility.

It could be a geographical phenomenon. For instance, when I was a child, the people who lived on our sloping hill could view the Olympic Mountain to the northwest and the majestic Mt. Rainier to the south east.

It could be a man made monstrosity. Do you come home from a trip and the shadow of a skyscraper beckons you.

Has the wind blowing from the feed lot given your small town a dusty or smelly reputation?

Is there a college or university close by that seasonally changes the way your world operates? Or maybe a winter influx of retired snowbirds?

Could it be the house at the left turn to the grocery store has turned into a junk yard?

Did a famous person put your town on the map?

Is there something about your neighborhood that makes it unique. Good or bad.

I'm looking forward to finding out more about the place you call home.

Sign up on Mr. Linky!



(someone said this is a rerun -- so please forgive me! I must have missed it, as I haven't played Fun Monday every week this past year. Please sign up anyway and find something new to excite us.)

I think we did something similar a few months back. But I am at a different place now, so I am in. Thanks for hosting.

Pamela this is a great topic but I don't think I will have access to all my photos as I'll be away. So I'll let you know. I might even do it late but I'm not back until the Weds.

I haven't done Fun Monday in a long time, but I think I'd like to do this one. Now to write it in my planner so I'll remember;o)

This sounds like fun, Pam! I'll give it a try.

I've never done Fun Monday before, but this week I'll give it a go!

Yesterday, looking at the city through the eyes of one who will soon leave, I found fierce delight again. This Fun Monday is a fitting way for me to begin thinking about saying good-bye to my home of the last 32 years.

Yippee Pamela! I'm finally able to get in your comments. For some reason every time I try to comment on your posts I get that damn red "no comments allowed" circle. What do you think I'm doing wrong? Feel badly because I always read your posts and want to comment--especially your "Sleepless in Seattle" one about wandering the house in the middle of the night thinking--it really hit home.

I'll play for this upcoming Fun Monday, but may have to take your permission to liberally bend the rules because I've written so much about "home" recently. I do have a "house" story to tell though.

And I see you've gotten Peter back--good!

My Fun Monday will be a bit on the 'different side' of defining...it'll be my 60th Birthday this Monday. But I will try and add a few things of parts where I lived to make it sufficient for your Monday challenge.
Equoni said…
I like your idea, and I don't think it's been done exactly this way before. I don't have a blog, but think it will be a good Fun Monday. They just took away the thing I probably would have used...we had a silver bridge that crossed the river into town, and it just felt magic, when you crossed it you knew you were HOME...but they widened the highway and replaced the bridge. I was sad. There are a lot of other things, but no blog, no room....
Swampy said…
First of all, EQUONI, you NEED a blog. Just do it !
If you need help getting started, I know just the person to put you in touch with...

Rockin' Grandma: You know I'll do my best to follow the rules.
BS said…
Sorry I am so late signing up - but I will play.
Molly said…
Thanks for hosting Pamela. I am having a fine time visiting homes around the world. (Come sign-up for the Valentine Party in honor of one of our friends.)

Pamela,

Great job hosting. I didn't do such a good job of participating - too much going on over here. I felt too bad posting a 'fun monday' when the office is buzzing with stories of homes and lives lost in the bushfires. Can you put me off the list please, I'll do one another week.

Thanks
Amanda

thanks,

Rose said…
It's Monday night; is it too late?
Kaytabug said…
I jumped in, because YOU were the hostess!!! I know I won't be able to make the rounds, but I didn't want to miss out on participating and showing my support!!! kisses!!
