Hmmm ... Got 7 out of 15 questions right.

Can't see a thing in the second picture. Looks like a tree and a woman ... but why has the tree got a tail?

God bless.

Susan said...

Hi Sandie! In the first picture, I see the couple near a body of water with the tree branches above. In the second picture, I see the tree and what looks like a hat on a giant melting snowman's head. ??????????????
Hope you have a delightful Friday! Susan

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Well I got almost all those questions correct..couldn't remember Red Skelton's hobo name. Oh I'm old!! Hey I like margarita's forget the cat! Happy Friday! hugs, Linda

This was fun. I needed a break from calling tree services and the power company.

I will do the test later when I can think, but I saw a man and a woman in the first picture, looking like they were very much in love, standing on the shore of a lake and looking out to see little islands in the distance. There are large trees overhead.

In the second shot, it was more difficult for me to see because I'm on my laptop. I should have enlarged it. But it looks like a little tree that was cute down and has a cute face. He has a sort of stocking cap on his head. In the other tree, there's a little piece of bark removed, and I see a tiny face there, too. Maybe, it's waiting to see how the Lord "whittles" it and shapes it into what it will eventually be.

The Quintessential Magpie said...

...that was "cut" down, not "cute down." ;-)

Sr. Ann Marie said...

Well, I did better on the quiz than I did last week--got 13 out of 15 rather than a 0! In the first photo I also saw the man and woman standing on the shore looking out over the water. The branches on the tree in the foreground seemed to be shaped like hearts. In the second photo I saw an animal (looks like a bear) wearing a dress, shoes, and a coat.

Pat MacKenzie said...

I love your Friday funnies. I must be sharp today - I got all the answers, finished the puzzel in no time at all, and saw the baby and man in the pictures. Have a great weekend.

sarah said...

you always make me those birds...and nothing in the picture....right???? RIGHT???? say Right!
Okay just read Susan's answer..oy.

Sr. Ann Marie said...

Ah, now I see it--the first one anyway. My email, should you need it, is

Sandra said...

you already know i don't do well on fill in the blanks so i skipped that, it would frustrate me to bad. i did not watch the beatles and i can't remember what the lone ranger left behind. so that is why. i did see the big fat baby in the photo. the birds look like me and hubby

DaCraftyLady said...

Hello there Sandie, Well I saw the baby laying in the fetal position on the 1st photo and a man's face in the 2nd photo and I got 14 right on the quiz.. I liked the bird photo and chuckled at the video...great post as usual.. Have a great weekend. Debb

Ginny said...

I knew almost all the answers!!! But I love the virtual jigsaw puzzle, Ella will have a BLAST!!! She is very good at jigsaw puzzles. Hope you have a great week!

Sharon Kirby said...

Did I just have the best time or what???

Loved the jigsaw puzzle - I'm a big fan of them. Really pretty finished picture, too.

I saw a baby, and then an old man.

Did really good on the quiz - (oldster that I am). I missed the Red Skelton question - I thought it was Clem Cadiddlehopper. And, I thought people were burning their bras. (I didn't - I needed padding, and so no one was getting that thing off of me, no sir!)

Got a great story on the hula hoop - would it be OK with you if I bounced your idea into a post on my blog?

Rae said...

Fun Friday stuff. The first picture has me puzzled. If I try real hard I can see an outline of a fish. I see a man's face in the second one - kinda like George Washington. Reminds me of an ink blot test. Are you laughing now? - I suppose this means I need to see a psychiatrist:)

Nezzy said...

I got more that I would like to admit...some sure date me. Heehehe!!!

This is always an entertainin' place to be...woohoo!

God bless ya sweetie and have a fantastic weekend! :o)

Cindy Caudle said...

I got 10 right on the questions. There was a couple I didn't know. In the first picture I see a baby and the second one I see a face. Have a good weekend.

That corgi :) said...

I put the puzzle together, that was cool! I saw a man/lady by the ocean in the first picture and a girl sitting in the second picture, what was I supposed to see? I got 10 right on the quiz, I forget people burned draft cards, I guess flags.

LOL with the guy wheeling his wife's bed into the kitchen for breakfast in bed on her birthday, too funny!!

enjoy yourself this weekend!


Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

A baby...

And, I think it could be bad that I knew all the answers to the rest! LOL! I'm telling on my age for sure. Blessings ` tanna

Angela said...

Hey Sandie!

I'm afraid that I'm not old enough for the one quiz! hehehe I can see my kids wheeling my bed to the stove to cook for them! lol Especially the boy! lol All he ever wants to eat is mashed potatoes!

Happy Friday!
Happy April Fool's Day too!

BeautifulDees said...

Kristen said...

Sandy said...

Anonymous said...

I did good on the picture quizzes - except now I want a Margarita!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

100% Old but at least I still have my memory ;>)....
