  1. Shesh...I have no idea what I did to change my comments section! I want to subscribe to my own comments...I could do this before I started playing around with all of the buttons...(I guess I'll try again tomorrow.)

  2. I love castles too!
    In fact I love any kind of old building.

    I'm not in your competition but I just have to answer the first question from today.

    I'd sort the photos and then decide which I liked best.

  3. 1.I would look at them

    Happy Friday, hope you have a fun weekend, Sharon!

  4. 1-Being a Virgo, I`d sort the all by date, place and theme.
    2- No notes
    3- Definetly tropical!

  5. Castles are my fav too... all styles.

    1. I'd pore over the pics and pic out my favourites. I love landscapes, flowers and pics with moods.

    2. yes, I always write a journal when I travel.

    3. tropical AND local

    1) Frame them and dot them around my house!

    2) No - I take pics!

    3) Oooh this is difficult! I like both - erm... Tropical!

    Take care

  8. 1. Put them in a box and wish I had time to scrapbook them.

  9. Looks like I missed all the fun while I was in the edit cave.

    1. Not sure, other than look at them . . . maybe analyze them.

    2. Take notes? No way. Unless I see something that sparks an idea for a novel (or an aspect in a novel).

    3. Generally non tropical. My hubby and I are heat intolerant. :)

  10. 1. Lay on them.
    2. No, but I would take nip.
    3. Tropical (lots of sand)

  11. 1. I love looking at photos so I would look at them. I've found myself on facebook for hours looking at an absolute stranger's photos (that's kind of creepy I guess).
    2. I don't take notes on vacation. I don't take a lot of notes in general.
    3. It's 100 degrees in NYC right now. So, for me, tropical is local ;-)

  12. If I was to give you a pile of photographs, what would you do with them?
    When you go on vacation, do you take notes?
    Tropical or local?

    So Much Fun!!!

    1. I'd look through all of them :)
    2. In my head for sure.
    3. Tropical all the way!

  13. 1. Hang them up. Everywhere.
    2. No!!!
    3. I don't like tropical because I hate heat.

  14. hi miss vicki! castles are cool cause you could make so many fantasys and mysterys about them. i can be a knight with a big sword saving the princess or i could even be a king. castle stories are neat. heres my answers for today

    1. i love pictures so i know id be looking at them. maybe they could tell me more about you.

    2. i dont take notes cause im too busy having fun.

    3. tropical for sure!!!

    hope you have a fun weekend.

    …hugs from lenny

  15. Pics: I'd look that them, of course. Then I'd put them in a neat pile somewhere and forget where I set them and tear the house apart 2 weeks later wondering where they are now that I'm ready to put them in an album.

    Vacation notes? Nope. I like to live in the moment. I'm not much of a note-taker in class either.

    Tropical or local? I don't need to explain this one to you. Iowa is beautiful, but seriously, does anyone EVER want to come VACATION here? Seriously? Gimme Tropical.

  16. Good grief...hope you are drying out!

    1 - I'd make a collage.
    2 - Yes, it drives my family crazy.
    3 - Tropical and local. Some of the best details are found right in our own neighborhoods.

    Best wishs,

  17. Why are you and Jackee both having water problems? You should be receiving blessings instead of problems, for these fun giveaways!

    1. Depends on what kind of photos you gave me. I would probably give them to my kids to see what kind of creative project they came up with! If they were beautiful nature photography I would scan them first and add them to my screen saver collection.

    2. I don't just take notes, I journal! If I don't have time to journal write away, I'll write short hand notes on the back of my hand to remember.

    3. Tropical if I had the money, but local is always great too, especially since I live near some amazing mountain scenery!

  18. 1. Sort and scrapbook
    2. Notes and pictures! (that I later scrapbook)
    3. Local because we can take the dog on our fun adventures with us!

  19. 1. The appropriate answer would be to put them in an album. I must not lie. I would put them in a pile on my shelf with one photo up for display.

    2. Sometimes I take notes on vacation. I always take notes at conferences - pages and pages. People look at me funny. And by the end of the conference, my hand is exhausted!

    3. Other? I'd have to choose local. I don't like sitting on beaches too long or bugs. But I love walking around towns, cities, and beaches.

  20. Sorry about your water problem...

    1: I would look at them, and then decide what i would do.

    2:Notes in my head.


  21. Yikes - I hope your basement woes get sorted out soon - water is horrible when it's sneaking in your house!

    1 - photo album all to themselves
    2 - photos - notes later!
    3 - local - I get sunstroke too easily! :)
