word association friday five

Here's this week's Friday Five:
Think summer......are you there? Below you will find five words or phrases. Tell us the first thing you think of on reading each one. Your response might be simply another word, or it might be a sentence, a poem, a memory, a recipe, or a story. You get the idea:

I'm going to be an unabashed copycat and, like Sally, answer in pictures.

1. rooftop

Well, it's not quite the top of the roof, but here's a picture of the tired feet of Offspring #1 and me overlooking the Today Show in NYC.

2. gritty

Here's the gritty/sandy beach in Hawaii. (If you look verrrrrrry closely you can see Offsprings 1&2 surfing.)

3. hot town
Longview is totally HOT because we have this awesome squirrel next to the library:

4. night
On second thought, probably the best way to make Longview HOT is like this:

(H.S. Homecoming bonfire a couple of years ago)

5. dance

Hubby and me caught in a rare dance. Rare because we are bad dancers. Really, really bad. At last count there were 4 left feet between us. Did I mention bad?

Longview WASHINGTON--thank God it isn't Longview, TX! It it were, the fire picture would have a cross in it!

Auntie Knickers said...

Great pictures, especially the squirrel!

Presbyterian Gal said...

Hey that big squirrel is needed down in San Clemente where there is a big gang of thieving poof tailed rodents!

And you two don't have to be good dancers to be good at dancing! Just sayin'.
