COTM - January, 2018
« on: January 01, 2018, 10:43:59 AM »
 
:happy-new-year: :ny-clock: :ny4:



It's a new year and a new month for a challenge. What is our challenge? In one word it is:



Quote

Paradise:  A place or condition of happiness, contentment and beauty.





What is your ideal of an earthly paradise? Is it a tropical island? A place with lolipop trees? Sparkling fountains  of wine? An endless buffet? Scantily clad girls hanging all over you? Waiting on you? Are you a rockstar? A farmer? A philanthropist, or famous artist? An Astronaut?  Let's see your dream of a life in paradise?


That's all there is to it! If you don't have one, make one up!




NOTE PLEASE:

We have changed the COTM rules as to the number of entries beginning in January, 2018. Entrants may post only 3 (three/drei/tres/trois) images. Contest runs until Wednesday January 31st, 12:00 am EST (midnight).

:tearlaugh:

Tried to amend my carnivorous habits.
Made it nearly seventy days,
Losin' weight without speed,
Eatin' sunflower seeds,
Drinkin' lots of carrot juice and soakin' up rays.

But at night I'd have these wonderful dreams
Some kind of sensuous treat.
Not zucchini, fettuccini, or bulgur wheat,
But a big warm bun and a huge hunk of meat.

:tearlaugh:

Nothing to show but this brand-new tattoo.
And it's a real beauty - a Mexican cutie -
How it got there, I haven't a clue.

I like mine with lettuce and tomato
Heinz 57 and french-fried potatoes
Big kosher pickle and a cold draft beer
Good god almighty which way do I steer
for my cheeseburger in paradise?

J's stuck on cheeseburgers in Paradise :tearlaugh:

Although, there's nothing bad about being inspired by Jimmy Buffet if you're of a mind to do so.
