WWC: 3 & Lean

Once again Ladies and Gentlemen, the "Pickled Beef Showcase" Presents: The Weekly Word Challenge! This week's words are the number "3" and Lean (multiple meanings). Please click on any to get a larger view.



To start today's events we have 3 painted on a sandwich board.














Then we have 3 concrete curbs, blocking a driveway.


















Followed in quick succession by a 3 sided bolt.















Now, what we have here Ladies & Gentlemen, is a bench, made of 3 boards, with 3 brackets. In addition to that we have the original bench reflected twice to make it appear that there are 3 benches!









Finally, we have 3 basketball nets.







Without pausing, we will go straight into Lean.

This poor old spruce certainly seems to have had a tough childhood and now has a permanent lean.




















This youngster seems to be leaning in the opposite direction of the spruce though.














This fence at first glance seems to an upstanding fence, but on closer inspection it seems to first lean one way then the other. I guess that is just the nature of fences though.















Well, this fellow seems to be leaning a bit. Sitting up there enjoying the last of the days sun. He would make a lean pie though, all by himself, I think the recipe calls for about 23 more. Ah, but would he in fact be lean?








Thus ends my sad attempt at humor. And yes, for those that recognize that the bird is not a "blackbird", so do I - I just don't know a recipe for raven pie ;) For those that don't know what I am talking about, click here.

For those that would like to join in the WWC wackiness, drop by and see our fabulous hostess Tink over at Pickled Beef.

Hope I didn't ruin anyone's plans for dinner?

Have a good day all!

That old spruce certainly has a lot of character but, perhaps, not much vida left.

Hmmmm... pie for supper? Why not!
Your creativity and FUN with the WWC makes me smile every week. :)

Leah J. Utas said...

Love the leaning trees, and well done with the bench reflection.
Well done working in the old rhyme, too. Now it'll be on my mind all day. Good for you.

Excellent job, sis. Loved the leaning spruce.
And the bench reflections.
Not sure I would want to eat a raven pie - knowing what they eat!!

Reb said...

David, that poor old spruce has more vida than some of the others around here.

Kcinnova, thanks, glad I make you smile. Enjoy your pie.

Leah, thanks. Here I expected you to come up with a reference for raven stew or something.

Sis, thanks. There's food for thought, how about some pork instead ;)

Janet said...

oooh i loved your shots, especially the raven!

Jay said...

If that old Spruce leans much more, it will be blocking the drive.

Another great collection of WWC pics Reb!

Tink said...

I like the three sided bolt (screw?). And I think I'll pass on that pie for supper. Although SHEPARDS pie doesn't sound too bad. ;)

Reb said...

Thanks Janet!

Jay,thanks. That tree is fine as long as no one else runs into it.

Thanks Tink. It's the top of a fire hydrant. Mmm, Shepard's pie!

the Bag Lady said...

Reb - do you and Tink use real shepherds in your pies? :)

Gramps said...

Well done. I especially appreciated your 3s. I had a hard time with that one.

Reb said...

Sis, I can't say for Tink, but the two legged variety with those annoying pipes are quite tasty ;)

Gramps, thanks. All things I see daily as I walk to the bus.

Dianne said...

love the bolts and the driveway blocing things (ha!) and the basketball hoops!!

g-man said...

Well done! and the commentary is spot on. :)

Lois Karlin said...

What I loved was the bench's triple reflection. Very creative entries.

Reb said...

Thanks Dianne. I don't know what they're called either.

G-man, thanks. I couldn't help myself.

Lois, thanks. I quite like that one myself.

Crabby McSlacker said...

As much as I love pie... I think I'll pass on the 4 and 20 blackbirds.

Great pics!

Hilary said...

Great job. That reflective bus bench was wonderful. Your mind is so elastic.

Reb said...

Crabby, I don't blame you ;)

Hilary, thanks! It's about the only thing left on me that is ;)

Barbara Martin said...

The photos were great, Reb; and raven pie...perhaps if a person were starving. I liked the leaning spruce tree.

Reb said...

I think I would have to be starving Barbara!
