Photography Challenge - Week #18

Let me start by saying Happy Thanksgiving to all of my American friends who are on the verge of eating way too much.  I'm more than a little bit jealous.  :)

And now back to our regularly scheduled post -- I think I got my weeks mixed up last week, but I'm back on track again.  This week's theme is "Childhood Memory".  I considered taking a photo of the scar beside my eye from when my brother threw a rock at me, but really my crow's feet have all but eliminated it from view.

Instead you get a photo of a 42-year-old teddy bear, who is in dire need of some brushing or washing (not sure which) and is missing an eye.  Actually, if my brother would have hit my eye itself, teddy bear and I would be in the same shape.  I guess I'm thankful for that.



As always, if you want to check out the other entries or submit something yourself, head on over to Laura Beth's site:





As a special treat this week, I am going to add another photo here for another Photo Challenge that is going on over at Lesley's place (Fabulously Flawed).

She has a choice of any or all of the following themes:  favourite food, smile, happiness, leaves and/or morning sky.

My first is happiness.  This is what my husband brought me back from his last trip to Boston - making me extraordinarily happy (it's a tote):



And now for the leaves, a blast from summer:


Lastly, how about a smile, from my darling neighbour:

I love the shot of your neighbour. She looks like such a nice person (I'm sure she is) and there is something about the photo that makes me feel like "this is a person I want to talk to", especially with that smile.

Really great picture!

You can carry your Bruins tote with pride since they're on a great winning streak!

Your teddy bear looks in great condition for a 42 year old- better than me most mornings! Although I do have both eyes, same as you!

Great photos Terry. Your brother story made me think of the time I was playing on the arm of the couch while my brother was practicing football kicks. I swung over just in time for his kick off. I still have a small indentation on my nose. Gotta love brothers.

I could have sworn I commented on this post yesterday!

I love your Teddy! The missing eye gives him charicter! My brother once shot me with a BB gun, luckly it only hit me in the knee.
I will have to head over to Leslie's I feel so out of things I didn't know she was doing a photo challenge.
All great photos, BTW !

I want to come live near you so that I can hang with you and your neighbor. She looks like a blast!
Thanks for linking up, baybay!

My teddy bear looks like she needs to be washed or brushed too. I'm afraid it might fall apart if I did... Poor thing. Love your photo, it's so cozy looking.
