May 2010 photo challenge - Thankful

Any Ideas??



April showers bring may Flowers??? :shrug:

bump bump bump

where is everyone's thinking caps??

In honor of some of those cherished pets.ca pets that have moved on to the rainbow bridge in April I think we should do "thankful" pets for May.

Examples could be:
Fred is thankful for a nice warm sunbeam
Lucy is thankful to have lots of cookies today
Riley & Sam are thankful to be best buddies
etc etc

Or we could do a sun theme?

Another idea could be "Let me in/out or up/down" :shrug:.

i like the thankful suggestion - any other suggestions?

The theme with the most support in the next 24 hours wins.

Thx!

Marko

Thankful certainly has lots of possibilities.

Some other suggestions for future themes::lightbulb:

rain or shine
favourite places
hide and seek or simply games animals play
tail tales or heads and tails


More bumpety bumps...

I'm with TeriM & Marko on the thankful idea. :thumbs up

I'm with TeriM & Marko on the thankful idea. :thumbs up

I like that idea too.

and just because I had this thought today and didn't want to forget it for a possible future challenge ...

Our pets and the motto they live by :).

I don't think hazel could handle knowing what the Pack's motto really is :eek: She prefers to live in her own little imaginary world where they all live to please her... :o :laughing:
