Scatterday U


My creation, originally uploaded by FranW.

Uuuuuummmmmm, that's what I thought when the letter and categories were announced!
What was I going to do. Even as I type this I am still thinking! Cartoon Character starting with U????
I Googled and found there was one called "Unfit" but no photo of it. Maybe I'll get dad to pose under and Umbrella and call him "Mr Unfit Umbrella man" but he still wouldn't be a cartoon character even though he is a character! I have even peeked at a few of the blogs before I do mine - unheard of, I have NEVER done that before, and I find that Google let me down, not a mention of Uncle Scrooge, Underdog or The Unicorn!
I should have paid more attention when I did a Paint Shop Pro class and then I could have drawn my own!
I am afraid I'm going to have to call "Uncle" on this one.

As for a street starting with U - not ONE in Bridport and I wasn't going any further afield for that, so I am presenting an Unmade Street! Being a small but growing seaside village we have a lot of these, named of course but uncompleted.

Things people pay a lot of money for - well I can quickly think of plenty in our house - Umpteen Useless if not Unique Items! I collect Royal Winton China in the Tartan and Quilt patterns. Now I know this plate rack is a sight to behold, BUT when am I going to use it? Never! Who does afternoon teas these days? None-one!

Fran you did well even though you didnt manage cartoon. Try googling japanese anime characters and you will probably come up with heaps and didn't asterisk cartoon have a character with U in it (Ubilisk or something). How about starting a afternoon tea day at the shop with people bringing patchwork associated food or plates, how cute would that be :)

Nothing wrong with an Unealed road. Or your unique items. I knew cartoon characters was going to be hideous. What about next week! Who's making these things up?

You forgot about Uncle Scrooge?? LOL easy when you know isn't it. I was going to put Useless expensive Babushkas but in my heart of hearts I couldn't. :-)
