WWC: "K" & Metal

Wacky Weather Confounds this poster's Weekly Word Challenge!

Well, there is a good reason that we don't plant out bedding plants and such until after the Victoria day weekend, and this weekend has certainly been driving the point home. Yes folks we have cold and snow! Rain and frost warnings abound, and this afternoon, they are giving Edmonton and points north and west of here, heavy snowfall warnings. We could see up to 20 cms (8 inches) of it by Tuesday afternoon. In conjunction with this week's challenge, there is a word that ends in "K" that about sums it up!

This weeks photos are either lame, or from last summers archives. I think I managed to avoid to many repeats ;)



This statue of Sir Winston Churchill is probably made from bronze Metal. Located in a Square named after him.












These Metal girders and the crane are from steel I hope. This will be our new art gallery and should in fact be close to completion.












This is from a moving vehicle, of the Metal girders on the High Level Bridge while the waterfall is running.











These Metal sculptures are outside of the Royal Alberta Museum.












This is the hand sign for the letter "K" in American Sign Language, finger spelling.



















I think I need more Ketchup
















And finally, my KitchenWorks Kettle on my Kitchen counter.















That about wraps up this weeks challenge. If you would like to join in the fun, drop by and visit Tink at Pickled Beef. To see more, click on the logo on my side bar.

Have a good day all.

For someone with computer troubles, you sure do come through with shining (metal!) Kolors! ;)

We actually are looking at frost warnings here overnight. It seems so weird for the 2nd half of May!

Leah J. Utas said...

Weather be damned (and many other bad words) you did fine. Thought the ASL bit was cool.

the Bag Lady said...

Great post, sis!

That word that you mentioned that ends with "K"? Applies here this morning - in capital letters!!!
F**KING snow!
Sigh.

David Cranmer said...

Wonderful pics and best of luck with that dang computer... The Bag Lady just cracked me up with her comment.

Emily said...

I can't believe you are still having snow up there! Your plant/flower growing season must be very, very short.

I enjoyed the sign language "k" of course the first thing I did was make it with my hand!

Jay said...

Snow? Frost? Oh that really does suck. It's spring! Get with the program here. LOL

Great pics. The sign language "K" is a really brilliant idea.

Reb said...

Kcinnova, thanks. It takes so long to do anything on this old computer.

Leah, it is definately time for the snow to be gone! Glad you liked the ASL.

Sis, we missed most of it. Sorry you didn't.

Thanks David! She does that very well. Used to make our brother spit his tea.

Emily it is and this is a strange year.

Jay, I really would like to! Glad you enjoyed.

Bummer on the cold weather, but nice job on the photos. Very Klever on the Kitchen Kettle ;)

Karen said...

Okay I'll quit complaining about the rain here because it's not snow! The pictures were all good, but I like the empty ketchup bottle the best. Something about the close up of an every day item. Well played!

Reb said...

Thanks G-man, did the desperation show?

Karen, thanks. I liked the way the little drop of moisture is hanging there.

Tink said...

You did a sign language K! You ROCK. I thought about doing one too, but Hoop said no one would "get" it. I like those metal statues in Alberta and that first picture has a great angle. I hope your (and my) weather gets nicer for this week's photos.

Reb said...

Thanks Tink. I figured I'd better explain it, or someone might think it was a gang sing ;) The weather is supposed to clear up here in the next few days. I'll cross my fingers for your too.

Hilary said...

You never fail to find a unique slant with at least one of your images. I love the ASL representation. Well done!

Reb said...

Thanks Hilary, I was desperate ;)

Barbara Martin said...

This was a great post, and I'm pleased to see the trees around Winston Churchil Square are all grown up now.

Reb said...

Thanks Barbara. The square has changed even since I moved here, you might not recognize it.

that was like an illustrated childrens book - cool! great storytelling and picture placement

Gramps said...

We always need more ketchup at my hosue. The kids drink it up like it is water.

Reb said...

Thanks Ben.

Gramps, that bottle lasted me a good two months or longer ;)

Silver said...

still dealing with snow..? ayyy..

cool illustration and clever k-words..

Reb said...

Hello Silver. Thanks for dropping by. Yes, we got lucky though and only got a bit, not as much as expected or as they got north and west of us.

Dawn said...

The letter "K" huh? I'll believe you. I thought at first you were just making rude gestures!

Reb said...

Yes Dawn, it is. ASL is different than BSL...um, for both signs ;)

Crabby McSlacker said...

Oh my goodness, you can't catch a break on the weather, can you.

Great collection of photos!

Reb said...

Thanks Crabby. It is finally sunny and warm here.

Janet said...

Ketchup and kettles, two of my favs!
