Mother May I? Monday Fun Game Day

Ok Today's "Fun Monday" at Hootin Anni's Monday Game is called
Mother May I , and the answer is "Yes, you may!"


You're to take 30 GIANT steps away from your computer. 30 GIANT STEPS - IN ANY direction. You may have to make a few turns and pivots so you won't run into any walls or such...don't want any injuries today! WARNING: Avoid any obstacles in the way- if there's a door...open it & continue, if there is a wall...pivot AROUND it. You could end up outdoors in the hall....or upstairs if I decide to go in that directions!!! "Oh my, Then after the 30 giant steps, you must Stop!TAKE A PHOTO AND/OR NOTE WHAT YOU'RE SEEING!!Then, take 15 baby steps back and after the 15 baby steps, Stop!TAKE A PHOTO AND/OR NOTE WHAT YOU'RE SEEING and you can look in any direction -to your right, left, up not down ---that'd be your feet!!. What you see is what we get!! Stop! It's all about your first glance after the giant/baby steps!!! [You will have two photos/stories for us- the 30 giant steps then, the 15 baby steps going back] Don't forget---ask "Mother may I"!!Okay...go. "Mother may I?" "Yes, YOU MAY!!"




So here is my 1st photo that I took that was a picture of my flowers in my living room area. It's not real, but I love pink so I got this arrangement for that main purpose. It stands in the corner next to my TV away from any chance of it getting knocked down by any g-kiddies when they visit. :)


I then took my 15 "baby" steps back and looked a little up to my left and there was "George". Geaorge has been with me for many many years. I named him the minute I got him from a neighbor who said her Ganddad hunted him back in 1929. I had always wanted a Deer over my mantle, and since my hubby nor I hunt, it was the perfect fit as she no longer had a place to hang him. I named him George, because it was the first name that came to my mind when I saw him. [don't have a clue why???] Isn't he just too cute? Anywho, this is my 2nd photo for the Mother May I monday Fun Day game!

George is kind of cute, but I'm not sure I could cope with him staring down on me all the time. The closest I ever got was finding a pair of antlers in a deer park when I was a kid and my mother wouldn't give them house room so my aunt took them. Not really sure what happened to them after she died.

I think George is very sweet.

Hey booklady! I followed you here from my blog. Count me another booklover, a good thing since I work at a library.

We have a lot of hunters in the family, but thankfully no deer heads in the house. My poor little newlywed neighbor has 4 of them staring at her in her tiny living room. It has to be disconcerting! I'll keep my preference of seeing them outside, and let other people hang 'em on the walls.

Awesome pics....my dad used to have a set of antlers above the fireplace. My mom hated them, so she would decorate them for every holiday! Ever hang leprechauns from yours?

I would decorate George for every holiday - he is just CALLING out for a hunter's cap, now that it is deer season!

I found you via a comment on a blog I came to from NaBloPoMo Randomizer. A bit round-about, but I made it. I love books so I was immediately drawn to your site. Love the flowers, am amused by the deer head. I'll probably drop in again and read more about your books.

george needs some tinsel and an ornament or two!

the flowers, however, need nothing at all. beautiful.

If those were real your house would smell heavenly. I guess I should name our deer, antelope, deer, skull. . . Hi George!
