Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Rock, Paper, Scissors


Rock, Paper, Scissors

When I was a child we called this game “Chinese Decision”. I am not sure why and it was probably very un PC but I was a child when  Americans were looking for “Reds Under the Bed” and Australians were worrying about the “Yellow Peril”. Anyway if you say Rock, Paper, Scissors everyone knows what you mean.

Uluru (Ayers Rock) Northern Territory – As Crocodile Dundee probably would have said “Now that’s a rock!” 

Uluru taken on holiday around the early -mid 1980s. I have cleaned the picture up a bit as there were a few dust spots but the colours are what I saw.

I often keep old newspapers with interesting headlines. This was one I used when I was writing a post about the Cartela.

I tried to gather all the pairs of scissors I own but I could only find about half of them. I can think of at least four other pairs that are somewhere about the house.

Then of course there is “The Big Bang Theory ” version. “Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard. Spock”

Taswegian1957

I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband, David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on WordPress.com with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. Currently we have five pets between us. Naomi's two dogs Toby and Teddy and cats, Tigerwoods and Panther and my cat Polly. My dog Cindy passed away aged 16 in April 2022.
