Photo Hunters - skinny

tnchick says we have to blog about SKINNY today. What, SKINNY people? SKINNY pasta? SKINNY jeans?

Well, I don't know any SKINNY people. :) I don't have any SKINNY pasta in my cupboard. I only have fat, flat lasagna noodles.

And I certainly don't have SKINNY jeans. There are my medium jeans, my less than medium jeans, my so-much-more-than-medium jeans, well, ah, that's enough for now.

But here's something: My SKINNY-handled scrub brush.

The fact that it has a SKINNY handle, though, doesn't mean very much now that I think about it... It's the very stiff brush head that's important.

I bought it recently because I had a job to do. I had to get rid of the oil that leaked from my nephew's (Hey , he's SKINNY!) car and stained my driveway.

And Voila! it worked! I had to scrub real hard and use a good cleaner,but take a look:


Not a stain, SKINNY or fat, in sight!

Hey, I'm first. Lots of waffling going on here but you finally you got down to it. Well done with the theme. I have that series of jeans in my closet too. But once I was skinny.
Have a great weekend, Mary, the Teach.

What cleaner did you use? We have a stain on our driveway from our old tank of a car...it's gone (but the stain isn't) as of Monday! :)

This weeks theme is surely difficult but you did a good job.

Patricia said...

You are right! The oil stain is gone and your driveway is spotless.

I don't have skinny jeans (or skinny genes) either!

Blessings!

That's a nice interpretation of this week's theme. I'm glad you managed to get rid of the oil, as the stuff gets everywhere. Have a great weekend!

Your skinny handle brush and probably shovels are handy as I am getting snow accumulation today and expecting more this week.

Great skinny photo. So great to find your blog. I'm a retired teacher living in California. I'm hoping to visit New York City for the first time this coming fall. Any advice?
