Things on the Road Thursday! Mission:Participation!

Hi there!  It’s been awhile for my poor little Things on the Road Thursday.  But now that I’m trying to blog every day in 2008, I’m thinking it’s going to make a comeback!  (I’m running out of things to write about….quickly)

*side note*  I totally just sat on my cat.  Oops.  Sorry Neezy!

Anyway.  For those of you not familiar with my little weekly  monthly  semi-annually thing, it’s pretty much exactly what it sounds like.  When I see something interesting or funny or just plain weird on the road or side of the road, I take a picture of it and post it here on Thursdays.

I’ve been thinking about it and I think that it would be a great day to meet some new people and find some great new blogs and just generally have fun!  And for others also doing Blog 365, it’s a post for Thursdays!

So I’m hoping for some participation!  Every Thursday, starting today, I’ll post my picture (or pictures!) from the previous week’s subject (except this week, because HELLO this is the first week!) and then tell y’all what next week’s subject will be.  I’m aiming to making the “subjects” as broad as possible to give y’all your creative licenses, because who wants to go look at the same picture on a bunch of different blogs?!

Hopefully, I’ll get some participation on this, as I think it will be pretty darn fun!  If you play, just don’t forget to leave a comment with a link to your blog where you played so others who played can visit!

For this week’s Things on the Road Thursday, I’m digging waaaay back to my very first TRT!  It’s still my very favorite and possibly the strangest thing I’ve seen around here.

Is it just me or is this the creepiest Santa you’ve ever seen?  I took the picture parked directly in front of it and yet…the eyes….they intrigue me.  Hee.  I mean really.  What. The. Hell.  Who made this?!  And who BOUGHT IT?!  This was supposed to entice people into buying a Christmas tree.  Now there are tons of other Christmas tree lots all around here.  In all honesty, there’s no way I’m going to this lot to buy a Christmas tree.  Something tells me I’d probably never be heard from again.  Oh, and they left it up WELL into January.  Like, several weeks.  Again, I say “creepy”.

Okay!  So!  Next week!  The very first assignment for the participation version of Things on the Road Thursday!!!  I’m going to make this very easy since it’s the first one.  But really, they’re not going to get too in-depth or anything.

SUBJECT #1:  TAKE A PICTURE OF YOUR FAVORITE PART OF YOUR CAR/TRUCK/SUV/WHATEVER.   It can be anything.  If your favorite part of your car is your sun visor, go for it!  Tires, seats, CD player, undercarriage!  Whatever tickles your fancy!  I already know what my favorite part of my Jeep is and it is ODD.  And remember, it’s “due” next Thursday!  (February 7th)

So c’mon!  Join the fun!!!
