Oddball:

1.  a person or thing that is atypical, bizarre, eccentric, or nonconforming, especially one having beliefs that are unusual but harmless.

2.  whimsically free-spirited; eccentric; atypical:
an oddball scheme.
Every Sunday until the following Sunday, you have a chance to participate in the Oddball Photo Challenge.  Look through your photos and what catches your eye?  What photos did you take just because they were weird or fun or unusual?  Those are oddball candidates.
Recently I was visiting our older daughter in Shenandoah, Iowa.  On Saturday morning, we walked to The Donut Shop, where we picked up some quintessentially light, delicious  glazed doughnuts.  While we waited, a tray of fresh ones were brought to the front and the woman behind the counter gave us our half dozen from these.  By the time we got home, the bottom two were compressed from the pressure, but they still tasted great.  Nothing like a fresh, warm glazed doughnut every so often!

Later we drove to the big city, Omaha, just across the river, where I grew up many years ago.  The old market area has been renovated since we lived there and the entire city is vibrant.  We drove by the church and grade school I attended as well as  the small house where I spent those grade school years.  The first house we lived in is now part of the interstate system.  🙂  It was an enjoyable day and yielded a number of photos, some of which are oddballs.

    Okay, I really like your entry this week Janet. Not sure if I like the signs better or the toilet paper. Maybe the toilet paper. 🙂

  2. Very bizarre oddballs, Janet. 🙂

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
