Scavenger Hunt Sunday..

Hello sweet friends..
How was your week. I have to tell you mine
was a bit crazy..  And I am ready to take it nice and
easy today..

On Wednesday I had gotten one of those 
calls that you really don't want to get..  
My Mom had taken a spill and was on her way to
the hospital.  So I hopped into my car and was off to
Arizona.  I was quite shocked when I walked into the
emergency room and saw here leg. It was black and blue
and almost doubled in size.  She will be fine but in 
quite a bit of pain for awhile.

I had to giggle because by the time I had gotten to the emergency
room, the pain medication had taken effect and she was flirting
with the Doctor.  I have never seen her like that, 
It was pretty funny.  
Of course she didn't remember that the next day. 
  



So onto this weeks Scavenger Hunt.
I had no time to take my photo's for
scavenger hunt for this week so these are all from
my Archives.. But they are all shots I have not shown yet. 

And let me tell you they were tough this week. 
I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to find all the prompts. 




Meet Me at the Corner
You know the corner... the one with the flowers.. 
We don't have street corners like this in Las Vegas. 




 Mother Nature meets Technology
This is the best I could do for this prompt. 
I just loved all the flowers here in between
The escalator..  So pretty. 




 One Step at a Time
These are just some of the steps on your way
up to Coit Tower in San Francisco. 

I almost turned around when I saw this sign.
Seems like we had already climbed at least 100
steps when we saw this sign. But we did it.





Whats wrong with this picture?
I love this shot but I cut off this guys little beak.. 




Standing Tall
Standing tall getting ready to bloom..


To see all the other Entries you
can hop on over to 







My nephew graduated last weekend and I just
loved it when I saw this grad run out onto the field with
those cool boots on..  I just had to get a photo of them.. 

Linking up to 



That's all I have for now.
Till next time my sweet friends. 

Hugs~

What wonderful and inspiring photo's Linda! I love all of them, but the bird with a piece of his beak not there is a great one, hummingbirds are so hard to capture.

Hi Linda! All such lovely shots! I love the escalator shot the most though...too cool! I'm guessing that street corner is SF, but it reminds me of the ones in Seattle. Glad your mom is doing better.
We are going to get our stuff done with the DMV probably on Thursday...fun times!
