Ryker's New Trick

Ok, I'm thinking this might have to be Ryker's new trick.

Get a load of this little guy. Made me laugh...

Next up, burning the fat by belly dancing with your dog! ummm...nah.

The Weiners!

Ok, so for those of you who took a gander at the below photos and took a guess, the correct answer is a deck to be located behind our back bedroom.

Emily, Lydia and Teresa guessed correctly.

However no one told me the function of the little guys in the I guess that means I won? The function of the blocks is to be screwed into to hold the metal pieces for the deck to be held in place. (Or supports...)

Noo.... Since I told Lydia what we were planning, that does kinda exempt her, but I'm sure I figure out something for her. But Emily and Teresa, I will ponder your prizes and get back with you soon!

Thanks for playing, and for you lurkers out there, STOP lurking...I know you were guessing too!

I Spy Something New...

I spy a new project forming...
I spy something fun a-coming...
I spy a contest forming...

If you can tell me the function of what is pictured here and what project it pertains to, you might just find yourself a winner of a little prize. One entry per person strictly enforced by the little red dog, and ends on Wednesday!
