Memetics Two


Although free time has flown the coop,
I want to stay within the loop.
Birthday parties, trips and shows
Will still be keeping me on my toes,
And yet I cannot bear to miss
My little dose of daily bliss.
Soon, when all the madness ceases
And I pick up the bits and pieces
I'll revert to my daily scheme,
Responding to each up-and-coming meme.
Until then, this form must suffice.
At least you're getting it half-price!
When Maxine was a bouncing baby
Did she snap at people then? Well, maybe!
Abseiling down a Castle wall
Where I used to live once. Please don't fall!
 Our Surf Club banner and it's yellow.
A Life Saver's a plucky fellow.
Little Surfers getting fit.
The water's just a part of it.

Flowers massed in a local shop.
Admiration made me stop.
Exercising by the sea.
Something seen here frequently.
Sydney's icons pale and cower.
It seems there's going to be a shower!
Decorated didgeridoos.
Pleasant to see, but hard to use!
Reflections in a restaurant ceiling.
I think the curves are quite appealing.
King Edward Park on a sunny day.
Great for wiling one's time away.
A ruby lantern lends a glow
To the street where all the shoppers go.
Pleasant shade from the summer heat
And it is just across the street.
This has a Readers Digest feel!
Just a snack instead of a meal!
Was it one of my more ridiculous schemes? 
At least it's kept me in the Land of Memes!

You have a very wide center between houses - rather like what we see here in some towns like Long Beach.
The shade of the trees very decorative. Nice shot!

Cute idea for a busy week! Like the poem. And good pictures all at once. Some of those memes I didn't even know about.

Jama said...

Good idea to have all photos for the memes in one post! love all your pictures.

Sistertex said...

I love the 'all encompassing' posts that you do. Beautiful photos to match all of the lovely words. Thanks so much for sharing!

Gemma Wiseman said...

A very interesting collection of photos! Not often there are photos of the famous coat hanger with grey skies, so this is uniquely different! But I espexcially love the touch of the ruby lantern in the tree above the street!

Hello Brenda...

My friend, I just adore reading your delightful posts!!! It doesn't matter how old we get...we all still enjoy a good rhyme!!! are sooo good at it!

I loved's so funny to think of her as a baby...child...etc! Hehe! It's also hard to think of Maxine any other way...I'm just sure she was just as contankerous as a child! Hehe!

Well my dear, have a fabulous day!

Cathy said...

Good on ya RR
This is a very ingenious way to get all your weekly meme posts in if you're busy. Must admit I've never heard of some of them
I wonder if that fella by the sea ever does himself a harm by exercising in that way. I'm sure there are more safer ways to tone up the abs
And Maxine as a babe - have pity on her mother if she was as outright then as she is now lol

Hilda said...

What a fun collection of photos for so many memes!

Troy said...

Thanks for including me in your list of parties to attend this week. I do so enjoy reading your poosts. I caught your comment and moved your link onto the current MckLinky as soon as I had it posted, I hope that's ok.

Thanks again for linking and for all the smiles you bring each week.

Angie said...

When I saw the date
I said "Hang on, Mate
where's the Sky in this?"
"A post I can miss!"
Then I scrolled on down
(didn't cause a frown).
The shots are all great,
good going, Mate.

Enjoyed them all, excellent idea.

Tash said...

That was a thrilling ride thru the meme-dom! Thanks for the fun, RR. Would be a Jubilant addition to 'J' for ABC Wednesday.
