One-Liner Wednesday – You say potato, I say what?

A potato with eyes that look like, well, eyes, and a smiling mouth.

He was a happy spud: delicious, too.

It’s Thursday, and our contest is closing with six designs in the running for our 2017-2018 Stream of Consciousness Saturday Badge. The winner will have his or her badge displayed both here and all around the Internet by whomever participates in the weekly SoCS prompt.

The links below will take you to the contestant’s sites, to the posts on which their badges are displayed. Please make sure you have a look at all of them before you vote! I’ll give each a descriptive name which you’ll find both with the link and on the poll for easier voting. I’m not going to vote unless there’s a tie, so it’s all up to you!

#ThursdayDoors – Museum pieces

My son, Christopher, and I went on our yearly excursion to Toronto to the Royal Ontario Museum on Tuesday. The outside of the building is under renovation, but luckily I got pictures of the actual museum doors last year ( click here to see them). This year, I decided to take photos of some of the doors on display inside. It seems doors are interesting enough to keep …

Click on the photos for a larger image:

There were more doors in the museum, but these were all I managed to capture this time around.

#ThursdayDoors – Doors ‘n’ Cats

Walking around my neighbourhood, I’ve seen a curious trend; the combination of doors and cats. I’d like to share with you my findings to date.

Enjoy.
(Click the pictures to enlarge.)

Well-camouflaged and snoozin’

Checking me out.

Waiting to get in.

Enjoying the fresh air.

Watching a squirrel and wishing he was outside.

This post is brought to you by the Thursday Doors prompt from the great Canadian photographer, Norm Frampton. Please visit his post here https://miscellaneousmusingsofamiddleagedmind.wordpress.com/2017/07/13/thursday-doors-july-13-2017/ and you, too, can join in the doorish fun!
