There are three things I haven’t yet shared with most of you, dear readers.
Well, there are probably 100 things I haven’t shared with you, but three stand out.
Are you ready to play your Thursday guessing game?
Here is the first clue:
OK, I’m sure this is way too easy. I’m trying to make it up to you for that terribly hard guessing game when I borrowed the Canon Rebel camera and asked you to guess what was hidden in the blog.
Ready for the second clue? Get your pencils out and start figuring!
OK, those clues were easy, right? Everyone knows, right?
The third clue now, Vanna White! (Except…long pause…I hadn’t properly considered what the third undisclosed yet-unrevealed item might be. Excuse your blog writer while she thinks of something she hasn’t shared with you.)
Oh dear, it looks like I’ve already told you Everything Exciting.
But, because I’ve insisted that there are three things you don’t know…here is the final clue.
Please don’t spend too many hours contemplating this one, lol!
UHmmm you got a new lens that works as a teleporter and allows you to watch everything whirl as you go past?
uhmm you are going to visit your parents in florida already and play with your new camera and lens, while we are stuck with cold dead leaves?
Ooooh, I like this one, Elisa!
You went shopping!! Did you buy what I think you bought?? 🙂
As soon as the leaves stop dropping, you’re taking the new camera and heading to FL for a photo shoot (which will include feet).
Something elemental …
The first photo has AIR and WATER.
The second photo has AIR and EARTH.
We’re missing FIRE.
You are going to set fire to something (it will taked AIRand capture it with the camera while it burns.
When I read ‘you are going to set fire to something’, I almost choked on my tea with laughter! ROFL! Thanks, Laurie… gurgle-giggling…. brilliant….
Somehow I pushed the “send” button without meaning to. And YOU are the reflection of SPIRIT.
AIR, WATER, FIRE, EARTH and SPIRIT — Elemental by dear Watson!
I have Miss Ellie–the laptop computer–over on the kitchen table right now because I was filing some old photos in proper photos. Am making a kind of vegetarian made-up goulash recipe right now and watching these comments come in. You guys crack me up! You bring me such joy & laughter. I’ll tell you…some of you are darn close with your guesses!
You said it was way too easy, so I will take the most obvious guess … you are taking your camera on a warm, sunny vacation as soon as the leaves are all gone.
(but, I secretly like Laurie’s creative guess about the air, water, earth and setting something on fire much better.)
A bonfire with the full moon tonight sounds like great fun.
Your Mom’s birthday is coming up and you are going to Fla. in Nov. to celebrate with your Mama. Run Joanne, she’s coming with that new camera!!
You’re dreaming of warmth while you rake leaves and maybe you’re raking leaves for neighbors for pay so you can pay for the new camera?
You are actually already in Florida with your new camera, lounging happily by the pool while reading about the camera. You actually got on a plane yourself when Kiah went flying across the country and didn’t tell any of us so you could surprise us with sunny posts instead of shots of autumn leaves.
I do like Lauries Explanation, however if we are looking for 3 secrets,It doesn’t fir….
How aboy Leaves for warmer weather with the new camera??
Wow! Now THAT is clever! You must be into crosswords or something?
Are you heading to San Diego with your new camera for Thanksgiving, perhaps?
OK, I’ll give it a shot too, Kathy.
You’re going to Florida (or somewhere with palm trees and warm sun… aahh… not somewhere in Namibia, perhaps?! ;-)), with your new camera, to attend a digital SLR photography course, and you’ve been given a super-duper new telephoto lens that’ll allow you to photograph the leaves falling off the trees back home in UP.
You’re probably thinking, ‘This girl isn’t all too clued-up on the geography of the US’. Er… and you’d be right!
Everyone’s taken all my best guesses….I shall sit back and wait to be pleasantly surprised!
I have not a clue other than what everyone else has suggested, your on your way to Fl…
The first one is easy as is the second. The third? Time to rack? 😉
I really hope that whatever it is involves up close and personal contact with swaying palm trees and warm, nearly tropical water. And that Bon Voyage will be an appropriate greeting….or send off. In any case, here’s hoping!!
That first clue was way too easy, but I appreciated Georgia Mom’s warning anyway!
waving madly at Mom!!!
