When walking in the park, I generally see the usual suspects: plants, animals, birds, tracks, and sometimes humans.  But every so often, I have a close encounter of the odd kind, the sort that’s just right for a Sunday Oddball Photo Challenge episode. I edited this with Picasa’s Lomo-ish for just a bit more pizzaz.

There’s getting from place to place and then there’s gettin’ around in style!  No one is too young for some snazzy wheels, as this grocery cart catering to the younger set in Mesa, Arizona shows.  It’s just unusual enough to enter the Oddball Photo Challenge for this week. Hopefully both drivers are on the same page as to which aisle they’re headed for next!

I’ve joined Instagram, although I’m still feeling my way around.  My username is, unsurprisingly, Sustainabilitea, so feel free to follow me there.  If you’re on Instagram, let me know.

The Weekly Photo Challenge has moved from Friday to Wednesday and since I was last here, Cee’s Oddball Photo Challenge has moved from Friday back to Sunday.  I’m so confused.  However, the two are no longer in conflict, so my life is easier in that respect.  🙂  For this week, I offer you a sign I spotted while going with my parents to visit my brother and his family during my January visit to Arizona.  I’m all for what this sign stands for!!

It’s winter, the time for snow.  But this isn’t snow.  This is sugar on blueberries waiting to be made into blueberry crisp.  Oddball?  Maybe for a photo, but not for the taste buds!

A friend and I stopped by Super H Mart, a Korean grocery store carrying an enormous variety of Asian foods, rice cookers, etc.  While browsing, we came across these adorable, and no doubt tasty snacks. I may have to try them one day, as I love almost anything stuffed with red bean paste!  They are oddballs in the cutest sort of way.

I laughed out loud when I saw this display in a local grocery store.  Oddballs show up everywhere. It’s just nuts.

The difference between week 43 and week 52 is a frighteningly small number!!  The days are rapidly getting shorter and chillier, I’ve added a blanket to the bed, and turned the heat on…rather low, but still on. But whatever the season, oddball photos abound.  Here are three disparate ones for this week.

The view from the bottom of the stairs in our Cleveland house, looking up at the light and the attic stairs, which are pulled down. I painstakingly painted that entire railing when we moved in and again before we put the house on the market (and it ran all the way down both sides of the stairs to the first floor!  🙂

As the Weekly Photo Challenge prompt seems to be lost in the ether, I’ll go ahead and post my response to the Oddball Photo Challenge for this week.  Here are two faces that appeared in my kitchen recently.

Scrubbing is hard work, but he still has a smile.

The definition of “bulbous?”

Looks like it might have been a rough night for several of my subjects!  The two little guys are now living with our younger daughter; the other, I imagine, is still sporting those or some other glasses.  So many oddballs, so little time.

Week 39?  Seriously?  That means only 13 weeks left in 2016.  Yikes!  But that still leaves time for at 13 more oddball photo challenges.  So without further ado, here’s my entry for this week.
