A Quiz — My Alphabe-Thursday — "R" — Things in a Row — Two Questions —

"R" is for RED  in respect for Aphabe- Thursday.   
Question:  What else do these three pictures have in common besides having red color?

Picture # 1:

Picture # 2:

Picture # 3:

GIVE UP? Then highlight the area below for the answer.

Answer:  they are all food related.

Picture # 3 of course, a McDonald's Meal Deal delivery in Guatemala City.
Picture # 1 is a small bowl of sweet and sour sauce with two frozen strawberries trying to swim.  This photo I took at a Chinese restaurant and the strawberries were in my Blue Bell strawberry ice cream.

Picture # 2 is the bottom of the drink dump bucket at church last night.  Evidently most people had the red juice drink that they didn't like so that was dumped the most.

For Thursday Things in a Row I had to stretch things a bit.  Do two strawberries laying side by side count as being in a row?  Of course all the motorcycles at McDonald's were parked in a row but I didn't get a picture of them.

Now my Thursday Two Questions:

I really enjoyed your responses to my Quebec City pictures last week. My Two Questions for this week (you can answer just one if you wish):

1. Have you ever been to Guatemala City? If your answer was yes, what special place of interest did you like to see or do? If it was no, then what might you like to do do when and if you could go?

Most of my time in Guatamala City was spent at the airport or in a bus heading up the Trans American Highway to Hue Hue Tenango.  This was on a mission trip to an orphanage where we helped to upgrade their facilities.  I was good at painting and playing with the kids.
2. How much do you use food delivery service?
Once in a while we get a pizza from Dominoes.  Trouble is that Dominoes and Little Ceasars are so close that we just call ahead and stop there on the way home from someplace.

Bonus Question:  What is your favorite "R" word?
My favorite "R" word is 'rev' for 'rev it up' or 'rev your engine up.'  I like mine while driving, I love to go fast.  The fastest I have ever driven is just a bit over 150 mph (240 kph) on the German Autobahn (or was it 200 mph?).
1. To operate at an increased speed: heard the motors revving.

Two Shoes Tuesday #3 -- "Water" / MidWeek Blues

Adults having fun in the water:

Playing beach ball with the kids

Stealing from the kids

These are balls rescued from the golf course, many came from the water, possible the water being held in the sand trap where Sam (not his real name) is raking for balls.  He found several but not his own.

The sign on the tree says:

$1.00 Yellow
...50¢ Blue
...25¢ Green

Thank You!

After harvesting state law required the Dictaphone player be placed on maximum speed.

Tommy, the best cranker, was given the duty this year. Ground up books, yummy!
