What Happens Next?


The winner of the contest here last week was the only commenter who guessed the correct answer. The topic that I researched but that didn't make the final cut of the novel was How to Disguise a Bomb. The winner:
Lexa Cain
Congratulations, Lexa!

This week I'm being interviewed by Marcy Hatch at Mainewords. I hope you'll stop in and say hi.

While I'm over there, I'm sharing some random photos here.

Everyone who leaves a comment about one of these photos will be entered into a drawing for a $5 Amazon Gift card. I'll announce the winner here next week!

Of course you can comment about anything, but if you talk about one of the photos, you'll be entered in the drawing.





Wasn't that fun!

Now, while you're writing, don't forget the contest on my website for another Amazon Gift Card in the amount of $10 - http://www.carolkilgore.net/contest/

See you at Marcy's!

Congratulations to Lexa.
Already visited Marcy today.
Pizza!! One of the four food groups. No? It's not?
Nice post at Marcy's!

What on earth is that thing climbing the fence?! Seems too big for an iguana, too small for an alligator!
Mason Canyon said…
Fun interview at Marcy's I'm surprised someone has come up with a story using all the photos to tell why the large lizard is climbing the fence at the end.

Where was that third pic taken? It looks like a lovely place to visit :)

Way to go Lexa! (My eyes must have skipped that one, I don't even remember reading it!)

If Alexander saw that twining of rope he might get out and hack it to pieces with his sword.
Carol Kilgore said…
Alex - How would we survive without pizza!

Elizabeth - It's a decorative wire gecko from Garden Ridge :)

Mason - To get away from the big cat, LOL :)

Marcy - Fells Point, Baltimore, Maryland - It was fun!

Bish - Alexander better stay off Coast Guard cutters :)

If we sneak through that pretty alleyway and grab that rope, maybe we can tie up that gigantic gecko and then celebrate with some pizza?

Oddly intriguing photos:) I especially like the knots at the pier, reminds me of a summer job I had once:)
VR Barkowski said…
The 2nd photo made me blush. A couple weeks ago, I was on a 1812 schooner sail and was reprimanded strongly for referring to what appears in second photo as "ropes." Those are lines. And they say you can't teach an old writer new tricks.

Congrats to Lexa!

Ooooohh! So exciting!! Thanks so much, Carol. :-D

I love all the pictures, but the one with the lizard is creepy, and I love creepy! I know it's not an alligator, but imagine if it was and those things could climb. Eek!
Jemi Fraser said…
Love the pics - and I think I spy pineapple pizza in the top one! My favourite pizza topping, although no one else in my family loves it :)
Wonderful, quirky photos.
Love the gecko - and could find room for it here.
And I am not going to admit to the places those ropes/lines took me.
Carol Kilgore said…
Beer - Sounds like a plan to me!

Mark - Why are summer jobs always so cool after we've had them :)

VR - Live-In Handyman still talks about decks, overheads, and bulkheads when he means floors, ceilings, and walls. There is a nautical name for almost everything. And then there are bells.
Carol Kilgore said…
Oops! I hit publish before I finished. Must be Monday :)

Lexa - Congrats! And thank you for giving me a vision of climbing alligators that's sure to haunt my dreams :)

Jemi - Pineapple pizza is OK, but it's not my favorite. I like jalapenos on mine :)

EC - That gecko might give your cats nightmares, LOL! Enjoy reminiscing about those lines :)
Clarissa Draper said…
I want to know about the lizard too. I have lizards climbing the walls in my house but they are often small and almost translucent.
Robin said…
I am highly suggestible... that photo of the pizza made my stomach growl. I wasn't even in the mood for pizza until I was!!!!

And that lizard... is that real????
Lynda R Young said…
For a moment I thought that lizard was real. My, your lizards grow large in your area! ;)
Helena said…
I should focus on the scenery photos, but I'm hungry so I went back to the pizza one a couple times. I can't even each much now 'cause I gotta run off to fencing, dang it!
Jo-Anne Meadows said…
The first photo made me think of when you could eat in at Pizza Hut I miss those days.
Carol Kilgore said…
Clarissa - We sometimes have those. Someone told me they were baby geckos, but I don't know if that's true.

Robin - The gecko in the photo is not real. It's made of wire.

Lynda - We do have some large lizards, but none remotely as large as that one!

Helena - You'll spend so much energy fencing that you can eat all the pizza you want afterward.

Jo-Anne - That particular photo was taken at a small, family-owned pizzeria in Cape May, New Jersey.
Medeia Sharif said…
Congrats to Lexa.

Great photos, but I'm going to focus on the pizza one. Hmmm, I think I spot Margherita slices on the right.
Shelly said…
That first photo looks dangerously calorie laden!
Congrats to Lexa! Those pizzas look delicious! The gecko is so lifelike!

Julie
L. Diane Wolfe said…
I like the lizard on the fence. I'd like to put black kitties all over mine.
Carol Kilgore said…
Medeia - Margherita is my favorite!

Shelly - Of course :)

Julie - I'm pretty sure I'm going to be eating pizza sometime this week LOL!

Diane - I'd like to see that :)
Crystal Collier said…
Pizza... We had pizza last night. It didn't taste as great as it usually does, or maybe I was just craving something else. *shrugs* Have you ever had Giordanos pizza? (Or TRUE deep dish Chicago pizza? LOVE that stuff.)
Carol Kilgore said…
Crystal - We don't have any Giordano's locations here. Maybe I used to know a guy whose last name was Giordano whose mama was a good cook - does that count :)
Melissa said…
That lizard does look real. He's crawling up to get the pizza. :P
Carol Kilgore said…
Melissa - I wonder what we'd do if we ever found a lizard in our pizza :)
cleemckenzie said…
Large iguana you've got there. They grow that big in S.E Asia, but here? Hope it's not real. Please tell me it isn't.

Congrats to Lexa. She's on break and what a great treat for her return.
Carol Kilgore said…
Lee - It's a wire lizard. From Garden Ridge. They don't grow that large here, either.
Christine Rains said…
Congrats to Lexa! I keep staring at the photo of the cobbled street and expecting someone or something to walk across the end of it. Maybe stop and look my way and then keep going to disappear again.
Stephanie Faris said…
I'll go check out the interview. The picture of the lizard on the fence is freaking me out. Looks like a lizard landed there while on fire!
Carol Kilgore said…
Christine - That little cobbled street was one of the neatest spots ever. Directly behind me, was Baltimore Harbor.

Stephanie - Now your description freaks me out!
Conrats Lexa. That was a tricky one.

That little pizza guy in that first photo--I think there is a life size one a few blocks from here. And I want one of those lizards for all the fences around here!
Carol Kilgore said…
Southpaw - Good luck finding the lizard. Got this one at Garden Ridge.
Congratulations, Lexa! Re: the photos. You had me at pizza.
I love the one with the ropes. Images of maritime life tend to tug at me (forgive the pun).
Carol Kilgore said…
This is the third time I've responded to Dawn and The Armchair Squid. The other two haven't shown up. So at some point, there may be three of me here LOL!

Dawn - :)

Squid - Love the pun! I'm the same way about the sea.
Fell's Point! We were just up that-a-way a couple weeks ago. The church where we got married isn't very far from there. (On Broadway.)

Um, did that gecko speak with a British accent?

Happy weekend!
Carol Kilgore said…
Susan - It's a great spot! And I love the GEICO Gecko, too :)
I'll take what's left of the top middle pizza. What will you have?

A great weekend to you, Carol!
Carol Kilgore said…
Robyn - See all those missing pieces? Mine :)
Is that a baby Komodo dragon climbing the fence? Good luck on your giveaway!
Carol Kilgore said…
Milo - LOL! It's a wire gecko.
Nas said…
Congratulations to Lexa.

Do those ropes smell fishy as they obviously are on a marina or a jetty? Yummy foods too in the cabinet!
Carol Kilgore said…
Nas - Those lines have baked in the hot sun so long that they don't smell fishy.
My gosh I want some of that pizza :-)
Carol Kilgore said…
OE - Looks like there's plenty left. Help yourself :)
