About | Theme: "13" | Roll
Next week "unique - funny signs"




I didn't want to post thirteen photos, that's for sure. So I searched and searched for something with the number thirteen. I thought of Snow White's thirteen dwarfs, and thirteen ladder rungs that I walked under [but I didn't have a camera], or I even thought of doing June's calendar, there is a Friday the 13th ---thirteen? What to do? Of course! :::slapping my head::: Now I remember! How could I forget? Take note of our car's windshield, and the beach parking permit for the year 2007 ---check out the registered number!!!! There's a "13" there somewhere. How lucky was that, to get THAT number? At least it's thirteen HUNDRED instead of thirteen. hehehehe But in my opinion the "13" really stands out nicely, in fact in a freaky way if you're superstitious.





[and yes...I know there were 7 dwarfs...but hey, living with them through all these years, who's to say if there weren't baby dwarfs to come along...six of 'em to be exact!!! LOL]


<><><>

The lovely and sweet Merle has awarded me with this beautiful gift! I thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!

And since Saturday Photo Hunt is my favorite weekly meme and Merle is one of my favorite bloggers, I'd like to pass this on [the above award] to all my favorites - the Saturday Photo Hunt players. Y'all "make my day" fun by coming to visit with me. Happy Saturday.

DRAGONSTAR was my 13th commentor today!!!




NOTE TO MYSELF: And the plural form of dwarf is indeed dwarfs -- the spell checker kept telling me 'dwarves' was wrong. So I hadda look it up.

    actually it's "dwarfs!" Oh yes, Google shows 500k hits for "dwarves" but it also shows three times that for the correct plural, "dwarfs."

  25. Dear Anni ~~ I am glad you were pleased with the award. And I see you have passed it on. Would you like the virtul cat on my blog? There is a tiny sign that says, get widget under
    the cat. If you click on that, it should then go to your sidebar. That is how I got it and it is cute.
    Thank you for your kind words about me - I appreciate them Anni. Take care my friend, Love, Merle.

    ReplyDelete
  46. This was a challenging theme, and youhave done well with it.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I was confused for a split second when you said 13 dwarfs or dwarves ;), but then I knew you'd explain yourself and you totally cracked me up! I'm sure they've had at least 6 kids by now. SO FUNNY!!

    ReplyDelete
  48. 13 does stand out well... only when you mentioned 1300 did I notice it. Grat shot.

    Thankyou very much for the award. This is my first one and I will treasure it. Thanks again.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Glad you found something Anni. A lot of us had to invent things for this.
    Have a great weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Hi Anni, tat was a great way to get around the 13 idea! Thanks so much for letting me know about Mary's Writing Nook I've bookmarked it and will leave a comment there. :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. Have a great weekend too!

    ReplyDelete
  52. This is a fun post, thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Anni,

    I loved your Photo Hunt. That number 13 sure stands out - much more than the numbers on your new beach parking permit.

    I have been warned in my comments that I'd better use my eyedrops as you mean business. LOL I have the sticky note on my mirror. I will make sure it remains there.

    Enjoyed visiting you, as usual. Oh, but the way, I had the ISP tech on the phone for over an hour again last night and my email is actually letting my editor email me, so you should be able to also.
    I will send you a test email.

    Thanks for being you. I treasure our friendship.

    Blessings,
    Mary

  54. Today's Photo Hunt was tough, but you managed to pull it off with a unique photo. I didn't even play today as I couldn't think of anything. Oh well, next Saturday is another day.

    ReplyDelete
  55. LOL on the dwarfs! There might be more than 13 now. :)

    ReplyDelete
  56. I'll bet there could have been lotsa little dwarfs running around Snow White's territory ... but methinks you came up with a good one for this week' Photo Hunt. I've never played that one ... but I always enjoy seeing what others do.

    Hope you and 'hubby' had a great birthday dinner last night. Is he stretching it out to a birthday weekend??? My sister likes to celebrate hers (and mine) for an entire month!

    Hope you're enjoying your day!
    Hugs and blessings,

    ReplyDelete
  57. Great take on the theme - wow, you got 1300! LOL about 13 dwarves or dwarfs! Hope you can come by to visit!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Haha Great take on the theme! Happy weekend

    ReplyDelete
  59. Glad you had something with 13 handy! 13 is everywhere but I struggled with what I'd post today.

    ReplyDelete
  60. 13 dwarfs! LOL! How cool that you live close enough to the beach to need a parking permit! Hope you are having a great weekend, Anni!

  62. Cool, a parking permit for the beach. We can see the "13" number clearly, and of course you went to the beach at least 13 times.

  66. I looked for the number 13 in something at our place but to no avail. So that's why I had to go off the board about it.

    Thanks for stopping by mine :)

    ReplyDelete
  67. So you did find something with 13 in it. Good Hunting!! Great take on today's theme!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Hi...I am worried about Karen at Karen's Korner and know that you are a good friend of hers...I was wondering if you've somehow heard from her? I've sent emails and not heard back which is unusual for Karen...she always answers right back.
    Thanks,
    bj

    ReplyDelete
  73. Great post for this weeks theme!
