Next week "RED"

I had to really, REALLY think about this one this week. I had not an inkling of what I could photograph that was hot. Since, my hubby wouldn't allow me to post a photo of my hot body! Besides, people would want to turn on their HOT irons and try to press out all the wrinkles on this hot bod of mine.

What to do, what to do?

The only thing I can think of right now is a BIC™ lighter. And I can't find it. [you know, it's like your car keys...you can never find it when you want it]

So, I settled for something that is really odd. Of course, being me ---odd is to be expected, right? And it's something that'll 'turn up the heat' :::singing::: "The heat is on....." Oh well, I came up with this for hot:



...and just in case you don't know what it is, it's this---

Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time - I think I've forgotten this before.

Is somebody not editing what I'm saying here???

  4. Hi Anni,

    Thanks for dropping by and for telling me my blog is Site of the Week. I didn't know that ...

    I just got back from my daughter keyboard lesson (Saturday mid-morning here in Oz) and just saw your email.

    Woo-hoo!!

    Hope you had a blessed Thanksgiving - and that your health is under control.

    See - I don't forget friends, or the smallest details of their lives.

    God bless

  29. Anni,

    You are very deserving of the wonderful award. Congratulations!!!

    What a great photo of something hot. I knew what it was as soon as I saw it. Hot would be a difficult thing to photograph. Other than a camp fire, there's not much else to photograph for that subject. Very ingenious.

    Blessings for a great weekend.
