Here's a picture you just wouldn't expect on someone's blog...




Theme: Gross ** Become a Photo Hunter ** View Blogroll

This week's photo theme is "Gross." I really had to search around for this. But I was up to the challenge, lol. I searched all over the city, looked high, looked low, and then "Ding!!!" Trash day was looming and I thought "Ah Haaa." There is nothing grosser then the inside of my trash can. Well, there actually is, it's my trash can in the summer heat!!! Now that I have truely grossed you out, Ta Da, here it is......




Some of my regulars probably never thought they'd get to see the inside of Biker Betty's trash can. I never dreamed I'd ever be showing it, LOL. My neighbors must think I am a certifiable nut case, if they caught me taking said picture. So using all I learned watching James Bond, I slinked out there took that picture and snuck back in again. Whew!! Mission accomplished.



It was my trash can or the above jack-o-lantern from Halloween. I keep forgetting to put it in my "trash can," lol. It has fallen off the front step and is right now, as I type, by the front door. How gross is that?


Okay, I just couldn't resist. I know, I know, you expected something like this. You just knew I would sneak something like this in, lol. I'm so caught. The above is a gross picture of my motorcycle engine. This last summer we took a family trip (boys in family SUV) to Glenwood Springs, Colorado and got caught in the rain for a couple of hours. Hence, as very dirty and muddy motorcycle. But I had sooo much fun on this trip and it was worth it. You may be able to see them, but click on the picture and you can see the reflection on my husband and eldest son on the motor. They are looking on in dismay at my gross motorcycle.





Look away if you must, but here it is again a little further away. For some motorcyclist, this is beyond gross. They would be running, no hauling tail, to the nearest car wash to eradicate the dirt!! I was too tired to even care. It was just going to get more dirty on the trip home. It was a great trip and well worth all the mud.

Have a Great Weekend in Your Part of the World,

Biker Betty :)

The first two are really cool. Great ideas for something gross. I haven't even begun to think of an idea.

Nice pictures.

Cheers,

Lux said...

My mom and I were chuckling at the thought of you sneaking out to your trash can with a camera! Good ones!

Sarch said...

Betty have you ever noticed that the dirtier your bike gets on a ride the more fun it seems you have?

Pamela said...

oh you crazy biker..
now the trash can and the pumpkin are gross and gross

but I don't see any dirt on the bike.
oh heck you should see my car. I've never let it get this dirty before.
It looks like pig pen from the Peanuts gang.

My goodness your trash can is clean! I love your motorcycle. What a feeling of freedom you must feel when you ride.

Rose said...

Dear I think our neighbor has gone nuts.

Why is that?

LOL Great pics Betty.

abe-hap said...

your bin doesnt look that gross *lol* ;) but the jack o lantern is definitely :)

PastorMac's Ann said...

Very impressively gross trash can and your rotting pumpkin is impressive too. Your description of you sneeking out to get the pictures really cracks me up.

Even dirty, it's a nice bike.

Daisy said...

Yucko! That rotten pumpkin is the very definition of gross. I know it is very important to keep my stroller very clean. It must be the same for motorcycles!

Patti said...

My trash can is full of frozen trash!

jennyr said...

After a few poop pictures I am now in your garbadge ! Today it's really a "gross" day, have never seen so many dirty pictures in my life. But yours are very nice and I am sure they would have a lot of success in a gallery of modern art !
I wish your neighbor had watched you ! Would have liked to see his face.

GoofyJ said...

Great gross ideas! :) My photo is up

Morning Glory said...

I can just smell the inside of that trash can in warm weather. Nothing grosser, for sure!

pat said...

Oh my Betty - that pumpkin has surely bit the dust!!!

Thanks for stopping by.

mackeydoodle said...

Hey!! How did you get a pic of the inside of my garbage can!!??
Mines up!

Linda said...

Yep, the first two are definitely gross! I'm just glad you took the garbage can pictue when it was empty!

FamilySnows said...

Yuck, very funny! I think your neighbors just got a nice chuckle!!

Skittles said...

That's so funny about you slinking out for the trash can photo!

Beckie said...

Good pics for the theme. Now the trash can would have been grosser if it had been full of decayed food scraps! LOL The pumpkin is pretty gross too. Thanks for visiting me today.

Ma said...

You have one of those old galvenized trash cans. Yup, they do get nasty. I think I've been really grossed out today. I need a turn of events. My stomach is crying and saying..."please don't make me sick!"

Thanks for stopping by.

East of Oregon said...

super ideas for gross!

take care and happy Saturday and rest of the weekend too!

Michelle said...

that pumpkin is definately gross!

Warnschild said...

I have to admit: I´m not much of a cruiser kind of girl.

Nevertheless: Like your blog and love to read about other female bikers.

That`s rare stuff over here ;-)

Dragon Boy said...

The good thing is there was no maggots. Thank you for dropping by my blog.

Barbara H. said...

Our trash cans are pretty gross, too -- I would have never thought to take a picture of them. The pumpkin is funny -- almost looks like a deflated basketball. I didn't think the motors looked bad, but then I know nothing about motors. lol!

Sue said...

What a site you must have been taking that first pic. :)

Thanks for stopping by.

srp said...

Trash cans are gross... the bike? Life happens, dirt happens, thank goodness you can't see my van right now! It makes the bike look clean!

Melli said...

Okay! Ya got me with the first one! That is a groooosssssss trash can! The pumpkin (by the front door...WELCOME!) is pretty bad too! BUT... only you and all your (and my) biker buddies would find the dirty bike GROSS! I'm quite certain though, if I shared this post with the Hubs, he would find THAT to be the MOST gross of them all! ;)

crpitt said...

Urggh how horrible over christmas the bin men where late here and our bins stank something awful!
Gross!!!

FRIDAY'S CHILD said...

I found the pumpkin much grossier than your trash can.
thanks for the visit.

Patricia of Pollywog Creek said...

The pumpkin was clearly the grossest! Thanks for stopping by Pollywog Creek, Betty! Blessings!

superkimbo said...

It could only be grosser with the actual trash in the can ;)

sarala said...

I love the image of sneaking out to take a photo of the garbage can. Sometimes I think that people who run around with their camera too much (as in me) are up there with people who walk around town talking to themselves.

Toni said...

Wow, gross trash can (that's a compliment... really.) Thanks for stopping by today.

kooky kay said...

It's actually not that gross. our trash seems "clean." Hehe!

Thanks for the word of envouragement by the way. I really appreciated it.

Heather said...

Great photos, I would have loved to see what your neighbors thought of you taking pictures of your trash can! Thanks for stopping by!

Sunflower said...

Great choice for the GROSS:-)

Have a nice weekend!

I will Exercise for Comments!

Lisa Renee said...

Good idea for gross and I love the really really "gross" motorcycle pictures.

:-)

Teena said...

Our garbage can is worse!

Thanks for stopping by mine :)

jenny said...

I think my garbage can would be a lot grosser than that! But I did get my pumpkin into the can before it looked like your sad, shriveled one! Thanks for the laught this week!

DaisyMae Maus said...

That jack-o-lantern looked like a broken basketball to me, but what do I know ... I'm a cat.

DMM

Mummy B said...

lol, and I thought the neighbours would think me odd for taking photos of the washing line and hot water system last week....sneaking to the trash can is definately weirder ;) but thankyou for sharing it!

Crazy Working Mom said...

Heh heh heh...great photos!
Thanks for dropping by.
The halloween jack-o-lantern made me laugh 'cause ours were the same way. Seems to be hard to do the simple task of just tossing them. The only time I would think about it was when I was busy or in a hurrry! *LOL*

Terri @ In His Hands said...

Very gross--especially the pumpkin!

Heart of Rachel said...

Great entries for the theme 'gross' The inside of a trash can is really gross especially when you think of the garbage that was placed in it. The pumpkin is quite gross too. Thanks for sharing. Mine is up too.

Coll said...

My husband would so understand your last two photos. He is fanatical about keeping his motorcycle clean. :-)

Expat Traveler said...

definitely great find! yup I think we are both obsessed with our interests. ;-)

Larry said...

My trash cans never look that clean!

Goofy Girl said...

That jack - o - lantern looks pretty gross!

Empress Bee (of the High Sea) said...

sorry i'm late!

smiles, bee

ImBlessed2x said...

A ha. I really almost used my trash can until I decided the dog's backyard handiwork was worse.
....great minds.....

mrsnesbitt said...

Greetings fellow biker!
Admiration from a pillion here.
We have a Honda Cb1300 & Fireblade.

Great to meet you.

KT Did said...

Ahhh... there is nothing better than a grossed out engine on a bike! You ride girl... that's what that engine says. Glad you had so much fun on that ride. The bike shows it.
Thanks for the back pat on the moving...

mar said...

Clever choice of pics for this week's theme!!!

Michael said...

You wash your motorcycle?! ;-)

Ok, I wash mine at least 2 or 3 times a year, but mostly I just scrape the bugs off the nose!
