Well, this is pretty Octoberish but not having looked at the thread since it started, I'm not really sure it's what y'all wanted.

Anyway, in for a penny, in for a pound.

Highlight it with pink nail polish, glatt, that'll put the fear o' god into oncoming traffic.

100 Hours? Yeah, that's stupid. I think my high school driver-ed course was, after ? hours of classroom, 12 hours of on the road, 4 driving and 8 back seat driving. But I guess it was a simpler time with less variations in traffic patterns.

It's beautiful - but the theme is "Unexpected".

I kept looking at the photo for the surprise.

The surprise is that I actually managed to take it without making a mess of it!

The photo that is, not the theme.

It's not what I expected, so it fits the unexpected theme pretty well. Beautiful photo.

Found this on my hike this evening. Pretty sure it is a fountain. Definitely unexpected.

I'll be participating but the pics are some distance from the computer. I hope I get them uploaded before the deadline.

Is that a Spanish peanut, 'cause nobody expected the Spanish peanut.
Was that down near your Dad's or up here? The wheels and tires look like it's not in retirement but active duty.

Nicely composed picture, Jim.

I like the angled shot of the peanut and the way it shows off the raking lighting that highlights the surface veins.

I took a ride up to New Hope yesterday with my good camera. Hoping to get some fall foliage shots, and maybe something unexpected. I was NOT expecting to see a Peanut truck. I'd have been less surprised to see the Oscar Meyer Weinermobile. And it did seem to be operational. They were setting up some tents in the field off to the left... so I guess there will be some event this weekend. It's about 2 miles south of New Hope proper, across the street from where George Washington crossed the Delaware...

I didn't even know there was a peanut truck.

I've seen the weinermobile (one of them anyway) and the LL Bean boot, but never even heard of the peanut truck.

This sentence is very close to describing a different, NSFW picture.
