Accordion Player and Friend


AccordionPlayer, originally uploaded by carolWorldLeader.

This is my entry for the "Nerdy" photo friday competition. (You can vote for my entry if you would like, by following the "photo friday" link, over to the "photo friday" website. My name is "carol" and I'm entry number 288.)

I have yet to win a photo friday competition, but I like to enter them because they get me to think a bit, plus they are just fun. I try to enter every week, but don't always make the cut. This week, I wasn't sure I had anything for "nerdy" because, well, even my accordion player and his little friend are not really what I would call "nerdy" but, I guess, they are close enough (well, about as close as I come anyway. I mean, he is sorta playing the accordion and all.)

Speaking of coming close, I was talking with somebody about all the states in the US that I've visited. I came up with the following list (in no particular order:) Maine, NH, Vermont, Mass, Rhode Island, NY, Conn, NJ, Penn, Delaware, Virginia, West VA, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, LA, Georgia, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and Cali.

I did not count states where I've only visited the airport, bus stop, or train station (those don't count, really.) My list is none too long, but it's not only like 3 either, and I am trying to add to it as fast as I can.

Until next time...

What, no Missouri? How could you miss the State of Misery? er, Missouri. :)

I've been to the airport, but that's it. Kind of glad I got out too, what with my transcontinental flight waiting for me in NJ and the wind blowing so hard, they wouldn't let us takeoff.

I would have hated to spend a week in St. Louis, rather than London. Wouldn't make for good postcards now, would it?
