I don't do vacation well.Pack up cars, whiny kidsVacation is too much work!Can we stay at home?
beware the silverpetri dish of infectiontake the car instead
Ready to tackleMountain Trails to Fly Fishing.Colorado calls...
Haiku's are pointless,Because I spend the whole timecounting syllables.
Good morning Pam,In this big blue worldWhere so much is under the seaBusman’s holiday
Wow, these are great! Total bwahahahaha to Buzz and Chickory.This weeks:Perfect turn of phrase,Elegant tone, pace, and pitchLost in space, brain dead.
y'all are the BEST!In ole Floridaairboatin' over evergladesin search of Troll lair
Can anyone best Aunty's haiku?Probably not, it has my vote for sureBosphorus callingAncient Yalli offeringAesthetic comfortVacationing TrollWhere are the postcards to friends?Bikinis distractRush to distant lovesHugs, smiles, excitement, joy, blissCry all the way home
I can't compete with any of those.Line from a movie in Haiku format."Last years vacation was me working just two jobs instead of all three"
do you still want me to be the judge? 'Cuz it isn't going to be easy.
Chickory has a new avatar!Come on by the Pond, I did a visual to go with my Vacation haiku. I have an idea about combining the haiku and Mute Monday games ;-)
Everyone, these are all great! And yes Boxie, you judge please! There are still a few nods to Troll this week, much appreciated everyone!
I really shouldn't be the judge, because I never get the counting correct (Kymmie is right!) and this was Troll's job and he did it well.That said, my pick for this week's winner came from my initial response to the words and that would make the winner:BUZZ KILL.Bwahahahaha. Vacations are a ton of work and I always come home needing a vacation froma vacation.However, Chickory was a close second with her "Petri dish of infection" and Aunty's description of her part of the world made me want to hop a plane and land on her front porch. Moi's fried brain actually kicked out a good one this week and Fishy's "Bikinis distract" made me snort coffee.Pammy? I love this: "Hop a plane and fly". Karl's just make him that more interesting and I vote he needs to start posting more about what he does for a living. MRM's is ANOTHER reason I rarely go on vacation because it's so hard to return home broke and tired.Lastly, Kym's "Ready to tackle" and the using "fly fishing" in the next line is ding-dang good for a kid who can't count.This was fun! I look forward to next week and the Military Dogs will be getting a little "cha-ching" this week.Have a wonderful weekend!
Congratulations Buzz !I am always smiling after I read your haikus, just love your sang-froid regarding vacations.Have a beautiful weekend.
Congrats Buzzy! I loved your verse too. Yours and MRM's have defined my life at various times. Woof woof to the military dogs!
BTW - fishy, how are we gonna go about combining the visual and the haiku? We can announce a theme here, and then (instead of Mute Monday) on Haiku Thursday do a visual image to go with our haiku on our own pages? And call it "Visual Haiku Thursday"?
Good on ya Buzz! Pam, love the visual idea.
Pam,Come on by the Pond. I have posted my thoughts on how the expandedVisual Haiku Thursdays can be done.All feed back is good as this group always has ideas. I am so excited we might do this. I think many miss the Mute Monday game and not everyone writes Haikus. Using the weekly theme for either or both gives everyone a chance to participate.Also, to borrow Moi's terminology,it's a nice "memorial" to the fun introduced by Troll.
I forgot to come back and check the Haikus today. I can't believe I won over Chickies' and Madman's (those were my favorites - the fatalist in me I guess) but all gave me different perspectives on how you all vacation. The Mrs is actually planning the family vacation as we speak. At least we're staying in the country this year. I'm all for Fishy's idea of a visual Haiku (I'm starting to miss mute monday). Looking forward to next week.
Good afternoon Pam,Congratulations Buzz! A well earned win and your eloquence describing the situation is admirable.@Chickory, yours describes my feeling every time, I get on an airplane.
Milky: I think it is do-able on the visual/haiku idea .... should we change to Mondays instead?Fishy: It is a great idea and I stopped by and left some other thoughts on your page.Karl: Glad you are willing to participate :) And what do you do on that boat?
yay buzz! :-)
