Here is a great game I saw on another site. Internet scavenger hunt.

It works like this. I post an item, and the first person to post a photo or picture of it gets to select the next item in the game. Nice and simple.

A few caveats, No obscene pictures please, and nothing derogatory or racist.

So the first object in the hunt is.... A quilted car

The next item is... An 80+ year old beauty queen

Miss Senior Arkansas: 92 years old and twinkling away!

[Hazel, if you put the tags [img][/img] around the image URL, it'll display here - but be careful of the size and location in linking (best to stick to reputable sites, or the pictures can change for the worse :shock: And good to hit 'preview' to make sure the picture isn't too vast!)

I'd like to see ... umm ...

Hazel,

When you go to post a reply, there are some buttons near the top. One of them is labeled "Img" for image. Click that, paste in the url to the picture, and then click it again. It will add the following code so that your picture shows up: [img]and[/img]. You can also just type those in without using the button.

Cori,

You had the last picture so you get to pick what the next one should be.

Edit: and while I am slowly typing away with a bandaged finger, Cori is editing her post so much faster. :P

The closest to "on" that I could find was in the decoration:

OK, just making sure it counted. :)

I'd like to see a picture of a statue of a dolphin balancing a ball on its nose.

We will assume your stag picture is right, so here is an upside down farm house in florida.

Here is the address, the website says to link to it only.

Here you are, two for the price of one:

First, here's a (boring) photo. (Sorry, the [img] tags didn't seem to embed it; perhaps the URL format confused it?)

Second, try this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4rXjpMuJJzI

I'd like to see a burmese cat with a siamese cat.
