Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Letter U – Needs to have the letters O & U in the word

The Alphabet According to Cee: U is in…

  • Clouds
  • Couch
  • Four Cats
  • (The) Fourth Estate
  • Tongue
  • Founding Father


I’ve been trying a different method of finding items for this challenge lately. I start by making a list of words with the letter or letters in them and then I go and look for items to photograph or in my archives. I confess to sometimes using online word lists to give me inspiration. Here is what I came up with today.

I do sometimes take pictures of clouds. There were not many to choose from on this sunny day but I found an older photo that also features the moon.

Couch was on my list and I had several choices full-sized or miniature but decided to go with this jewellery box which makes a great doll sized couch.

I only have one of these Galoob Babyface dolls which all had different facial expressions. I picked her because she has her tongue out.

John Geeves was one of the original settlers in this area. There are other local families who would dispute whether the Geeves family were the founders of the town but they are the ones it got named after.

Founding Father


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. My current housemates are Cindy, my 14-year-old Staffy-Lab X dog and Polly the world's most unsociable cat who is seven.


  1. I like all of the photos except for the doll with it’s tongue out. How rude!!!! To be honest I’ve never liked dolls with tongues sticking out or funny expressions. I have to say I don’t like the doll much but the other photos are really good and I like them.
