Leave 'em hanging!

Part 2 of the Hookers and Hangers blogfest. Ta Daa!

I had a lot more hangers than hookers. Guess I should work on that. I didn't even use my first line! Needs improvement.

Anyway, here is the better half. Enjoy these hangers and I will enjoy yours!
  • In the chair sat a pile of sparkly dust.
  • With the ominous implications of the task set before him, it should be pouring.
  • "Amen," Cooper said, though he felt like having a double.
  • "You should've gone when you had the chance."
  • The tunnel was more of a backup plan.
  • They began their journey into the dank depths.
  • "Help me!" he mouthed to Geri and Cooper as he backed out with his supplies.
  • Such easy prey.
  • Everyone pays for their choices, one way or another.
  • "Figure it out, face match that woman, and get me Blake!"
  • He stood scratching his head as Cooper taxied the plane from the hangar to the mowed runway strip and took off.
That's enough. What a fun blogfest!

But must include something for Sensational Haiku Wednesday! on boredom...

No time to be bored
Too much to do! Rush, rush, rush!
Be bored when I'm dead.

Even vacation
cannot relax, must create,
build, enjoy, sightsee!

You know who has no
problem being bored? My kids!
Free demonstrations

They build the castles, I sculpt.

Good "hangers!" :)

Love the haikus and the pics of the sand sculptures. The kids look like they're having a lot of fun. :)

My sandcastles never look like that! :(

Great hangers. #1 has me intrigued.

They get their energy and enthusiasm from you. I think L. has had a growing spurt, from the latest pics. I've seen.

Nothing more boring than death, eh? :)

What About Boredom?

Nancy Thompson said...

Ooh, great hangers, but I particularly loved #4 & #9. So very intense!!

Gossip_Grl said...

Great endings. Have been reading so many hangers, I am starting to feel like a broken record in commenting because everyone I have read so far today has knock out endings. Enjoyed reading your post.

Brinda said...

It has been so much fun reading all these. You've got great hangers.

Rena said...

I love your Haikus. True story: I grew up near a town that is Haiku spelled backwards...

nutschell said...

Laura Marcella said...

What a fun blogfest. Great hangers, Tara!

Those sandcastles look awesome. I can't wait to go to the beach and build some sandcastles!!

Ink in the Book said...

I like sparkly dust!
And the crabs and castles join my envious list 'cause I'd love to go to the beach RIGHT NOW!!

E. Arroyo said...

Some great ones. Nice pics. =)

Hope Roberson said...

Yep, your hangers are AWESOME! I love #4 and so many of the others too :)
"Be bored when I'm dead"--right on!

Bruce Miller said...

Hey no fair, those kids don't look bored! And as a mom you don't get a minute to have the luxury to be bored :)

Leigh Covington said...

"Such easy prey." LOVE that!

And I am thoroughly impressed with the sand castle!

Nicki Elson said...

These are all very exciting hangers. I just saw this contest over at Donna Hole's -- so clever and useful. I'm gonna have to check out my hookers & hangers.

L.M. Miller said...

I love the hangers and haikus.

elizabeth seckman said...

So many great lines! I choose them all! Amen, I need a double.

M Pax said...

The prey line is very ominous, Tara.

Love the castles. Awesome.

VikLit said...

I think sparkly dust is my fave! :)

Kendall said...

Love the line "be bored when I'm dead". Very nice!

Jenny Morris said...

LOVE your Hangers!!! I don't know if I can pick one. Such a great character. Um, Such Easy Prey?? Or the next one, love that one too.

Thank you so much for participating.

DL Hammons said...

My favorites are #3 and #8! :)

Kendall said...

I forgot to mention earlier, I've nominated you for the Lieber Blog Award. To see what that means go on over to my blog and check out my post titled "Lieber Blog Award". Tag, you're it.

Trisha said...

I did use my first line of ch1, but I must admit I'm still not happy with it. :)

Love your lines... Nice voice! My faves:

In the chair sat a pile of sparkly dust.

"Amen," Cooper said, though he felt like having a double.

Such easy prey.

Christine Rains said...

Awesome photos! I love building sandcastles. Your hangers are great too. :)

Tara Tyler said...

so glad you liked the hangers & haiku!
i enjoyed yours, too!

Gwen Gardner said...

Loved the 3 H's! Hookers, Hangers and Haiku:)

Suzi said...

Such easy prey - that's my favorite. Kinda creepy!

Stephen Tremp said...

I like, "Such easy prey," the best. Leaves the mind wondering what will happen next.

And we wer just buidling sand castles at the beach. Lots of fun and free!

Emily L. Moir said...

Great hangers. That castle your kids made is awesome.

Sheena-kay Graham said...

The tunnel was more of a backup plan. This Hanger is my favourite. I can just imagine the bungling scenario leading this awkward line (awkward as in the characters must be in trouble). Good work.

And I love that you wrote you'd be bored when you're dead. Classic. Nice pics.

Lynda R Young said...

I love your hangers, especially the first one. And those sand sculptures are brilliant.

Lisa Regan said...

I love the sand crab! And these two are my favorites:

Such easy prey.
Everyone pays for their choices, one way or another.

Well done!

For some reason, my eyes read, "Such and easy perv" I was like... what???

Kelley Lynn said...

Sparkly dust??? SO curious!
