Scavenger Hunt Sunday Sept. 12th

It's time for Scavernger Hunt Sunday again over at  Ashley Sisk at Ramblings and Photos.  Each week Ashley  given 5 words and the challenge is to, through each photographers interpretation, put those words into a photograph. I  really love seeing all the different interpretations of each word by blog hopping to other sites. Everyone does such a great job!

The rules are simple:
1. Anyone can participate.
2. You're encouraged to take five new photos this week for the challenge.
3. If you get stumped, you may use one photo from your archive
4. Link up on Sunday (or Monday at the latest) - you can use the new button.
5. Have fun!

The words for this weeks challenge are:

Landscape and Power Pole
 If you look really close you will be able to pick out the power pole amongst the trees.  Go lucky with this sunrise, was able to get to Scavenger hunt items from in one photo.

Christopher is a natural.  Bright blue eyes and a grin from ear to ear.  Doesn't take much to get him to stop and pose for grandma.  Well it does take a little bribery, cookies.

Okay so what does an old Buick have to do with the Hobby theme?  I have a love for nostalgia and old cars are just a bit of history that I love to go and find.

I was going through some old boxes (sorting, rearranging and de-cluttering) and came across this old newspaper.  The year is 1974 and it's my home town gossip column.  I held onto the paper for settelmental reason, I am on of the finalis in the MISS RUSSET Pageant.  Yes, I know, it's named after a potato.  Shelley, Idaho just happens to be the Russet Potato capital and I was running to represent that fact.  As one of the honors I got to ride in the SHELLEY SPUD DAY parade which is held just before harvest time each fall.
Can you guess which young lady I am?  I'll give you a hint.  I am somewhere on the top row.
Wins receive  the oppurtunity to attend this years Shelley Spud Day and meet up with me, as I will be there. You will be responsible for your own expenses of course.  I can't miss the spud pick'n contest, mash potato wrestling and free baked potato.  YUM-O!

Great photos for the Scavenger Hunt! OH MAN! That sunrise is to die for! GORGEOUS!

I am guessing you are the one in the dark jumper the 4th one over from the left.

Now - I am going to go back my bags and come on out to the spud day! Just kidding. I can't eat potatoes! :P

PS - thanks for all your help these past few weeks. ;)
