Because I am not always the sharpest tool in the shed, when I first read this week's Saturday Scavenger Shots word, ZEPHYR, what popped into my head was the completely wrong thing.
This is, in fact, not a ZEPHYR, but a zither! I remember owning a little one when I was a kid.
Since a ZEPHYR is actually the west wind, a gentle breeze, any of various soft light fabrics, yarns, or garments, or something that is airy, insubstantial, or passing I felt quite challenged. Thanks are owed to NoRegrets for her very creative choice!
It is blazing hot here right now. No breezes, gentle or otherwise. And everything I see seems dully substantial, although no doubt this too shall pass. hee hee! So, I decided to take pictures of a couple of things at my house that could create a breeze if called upon.
This is the ceiling fan in my living room. It stirs the air in a gentle ZEPHYR. Or, um, it would it it were working properly. Yes.
Pictured here is the swamp cooler in Social Animal's room. It is ZEPHYR-tastic! For some reason it looks a bit grimy here, and I am sure it couldn't possibly be that filthy, could it? No, certainly not.
Thank you for joining me in this attempt at a light, airy post! Only I could make it a bit cumbersome and dirty. *sigh* Oh, and NoRegrets has tagged your friend, and mine, Evil-E to chose for next week. Pay him a visit, if you dare.
