Saturday Photo Hunt #55: HEAVY!


HEAVY!


The Saturday Photo Scavenger Hunt theme for this week is HEAVY!

Mom brought home the "school" camera that her club owns so that we could take some photos while the Sony DSC T1 is bein' repaired.

We were gonna take photos of our heavyweights:  Cocoa Puff an' Pumpkin.  Nah.  Too easy.

We settled on taking a photo of the black leather behemoth that Grandma carries around efurryday:  Her purse.  If you knew Grandma ... an' had occasion to see her purse ... you'd understand.  Grandma's purse has efurrything but the kitchen sink in it.  She's prepared for efurry emergency.  

The first photo is taken with the purse atop the bathroom scale.  What you can't see is that Grandma's Stone Mountain "hobo" shoulder bag weighs SIX POUNDS!  That's as much as Daisy the Curly Cat! 
 
The second photo is what makes the purse so heavy ... check out the contents!  Grandma has Charms candies, a cough drop, some giant Smartees in a plastic bag, two "fun size" M&Ms, a plastic M&Ms container with mini M&Ms, Dex glucose tablets, wash-ups, peppermints, a hanky, a mini bottle of water, tape measure, wallet, keys, sunglasses (and extra darkening lenses, coupon holder, "fix it" holder, nail mending kit, plastic bag, Target "green" bag, lip gloss case, tablet with pen, extra pens, phone book, phone and phone case, coin purse, and Blistex.  

When all that stuff lands on a table or in the backseat of a car, it makes a mighty thud.  It's furry HEAVY!

It looks like your Grandma is prepared for anything! I am very interested to see what my weight is equal to in purse-contents. Heehee!

Maybe sometime I could ride around in your Grandma's purse instead!

Your Grandma could steal Daisy and never even notice it!

DaisyMae you sure are pretty looking!

My goodness, that thing must weigh a ton! Mom's purse contains her keys, sunglasses, eye drops, nail clipper, license and atm card, a small mirror and a pen. People laugh at her about it. One thing is for sure, if Grammy ever needed to whack someone with it, she would certainly do some damage.

that is so funny! of course me, being a grandma myself, understands that we are required to have whatever you might need in any emergency. it is our job. see we want our kids and grandkids and granddogs and grandcats to get whatever their little hearts desire, so there you go...

Reminds us of Jan's purse. Her wallet is the kind you stuff things in everywhere so that is the heaviest thing in her purse. HOWEVER, as far as the green paper goes? It's empty.

Humans really shouldn't carry so much around like that. They should be like us and just go au naturel and no handbag.

Wow, there's a lot of stuff in that purse! No wonder it is heavy!

Ramses said...

Diamond Emerald-Eyes said...

Ah....looks like my Bean's purse. She could bludgeon someone to death with it! And if the purse wasn't bad enough, she also carries a tot bag!

Beethoven said...

That weighs more than me!!!!
But waaaaay lesser than the Giant Kitty though.

Kellie The Orange Cat said...

Ha, ha, ha...that is very funny! Six whole pounds of "stuff" in your Grandma's purse. My Grandma had a heavy purse too, it seems Grandma's have to carry alot of things!

Queen Snickers and Empress said...

Wow thats like momma's bag! She's always has a mini Fiji water bottle, make-up bag, lip stick case, mini umbrella, pill case, Sniff tissues, mini lent roller, tide pen, pens, wallet, sunglass in case, cell phone, keys, little hairbrush, mints, flash light and sometimes a book. I'm sure it weighs at least six pounds! It's so bad she could not carry it this weekend when she went out shopping with my aunt Lindy because of her hurt back. :p She had to leave it in the car. ~Queen Snickers

MISS PEACH >(^.^) said...

Ha Heavy is one thing I am not at only 4.5pounds. But I am feeling like a kitten playing with the wonderful nip ravioli you sent me. Mommy is amazed at how much I have been playing with it. I almost never play...thank you so much for your kindness in sending me this reminder that inside of an old cat there is a kitten at heart!
Love Miss Peach
