Parallel/Perpendicular-2Things Challenge


Sock Monkey crawled quitely out of his tent, trying
desperately not to disturb his neighbors and travelled hither
and yon to meet this week's challenge over at 2Things-
Parallel/Perpendicular.

Friday on his way into town for some bananas he discovered
these parallel mailboxes with perpendicular notices and
perpendicular shadows, it was perfect.

On his way back home on this HOT Friday night, he decided
to do Cruisin' Grand in Escondido, and check out some
COOL vintage vehicles. He began to notice that lots of things
were parallel and perpendicular. It appeared that perhaps it
was going to be a particularly perfect and practical, parallel
perpendicular kind of day!

Do you notice all the parallel and perpendicular here?

How 'bout the fins on this 1960 Eldorado for parallel...
He liked that the paint was so shiny it captured image of the
tree.

...and this 50's Chevy parallel parked, just look around the
perpendicular tree trunk.

...now for real manly-monkey types- this small block Chevy
has parallel stacks and a few other parallel nuances.

...and how 'bout that little Deuce Coupe '32 with it's
perpendicular decal and parallel trunk lines.

...exhausted Sock Monkey came to this chair and was going
to rest his tired monkey peds when he noticed, the parallel
open lines in the chair and as he began to look around he
found all sorts of parallel and perpendicular.

Well this particularly perfect and practical, parallel
perpendicular day was nearing an end. He was pooped...
and it was HOT so...

He decide to go home, take the weight off, relax and keep
COOL.

Maybe even shoot a few hoops!

Thanks for stopping by and visiting! I hope all is well
in your neck of the woods.

Cheers! My other blogspot: "ThE ArTfuL EyE"

id be poor, like poor little sock monkey, traveling in that heat; but he does have an excellent eye for picking out the particularly perfectly parallel and perpendicular parts of his travels. aPplause for those paws!

Dang, what can I say? You've created a sock monkey fun montage of parallel perpendicularity. Certainly seems sock monkey gets out in the town on photo-shoot adventures.

The post boxes is cool enough, then the infinity of the sidwalk seams, then the fins, carburator stacks, parking, resting flat on a aircushion parallel to the earth, outstanding!

Maybe I need sock monkey to help jumpstart my creativity.

LOL!!!

I agree. A very clever monkey that.

I particularly love the the tree and the parallel parking.

I bet he enjoyed his walk too.

If we were giving out prizes for best challenge interpretation ever, you and Bev would have tied this week. This is the best--and funniest--interpretation I've EVER seen! Absolutely made my day! Thank you for contributing, Andrea. YOU ROCK!

P.S. I'm with Rob: I think we all need a Sock Monkey.

Ah, there's an idea for a Two Things Challenge. Everyone get a Sock Monkey and tell a story in pictures. Hm.

John said...

This is a wonderful post - very clever.

Glad you pulled sockie out. I think he used to date Blondie (Debbie Harry) during album "Parallel Lines."

Maya said...

Best parallel/perpendicular story I've ever read!

Neda said...

Yay! The Monkey Bar Story is delightful. Sharp little observer we have here.

Magnificent wheels too. Were these part of a roadshow or what?
