Odd Shots on Monday--have I told you about...

Odd Shots is hosted here. To participate, leave a comment so others will know you are here. I am away for a bit so will not get the blogroll updated till my return. Odd Shot details can be found by clicking the logo in the sidebar.

This is my hubby visiting while waiting to pay for our meal in the snack bar at Sunrise. Looks like he is telling one of his old stories to some of his best buds, right?

We had ordered our meal, and I sat down at a table to wait. He stayed in line to pay at the cashier, and they were a bit slow on that end. While he was waiting, I was watching, and these gentlemen were in line behind him. He had never seen them before, and will likely never see them again.
~
He told them all about volunteering at the Park, the hikes we had taken, and all about camping in our Little Guy Trailer.
~
Now this is not the oddest Odd Shot I have ever taken, but it made me laugh. You see, I actually (don't laugh at this, it's true) am a very shy person. My husband is the opposite. He can strike up a conversation with anyone any time.

Obviously.

I tend to avoid conversations with strangers as well :)

My very odd shot is up.

diXymiss said...

This shot (and your eXplanation) makes me smile too, Katney. Sounds like you make a good pair ~ the perfect compliment to one another!

My odd shot is up too. ThanX!

If YOU are shy, I don't know what I am!

Golightly said...

I love people that can just start conversations like that. It's not me.

I thought I would play this week after seeing it so often on several blogs; I hope this fits the theme. I thought it might. My firstOdd Shot

Denise said...

Sounds very similar to Jon and I....guess who is the shy one? LOL!

Greyscale Territory said...

Hubby looks as though he is in full throttle! He looks absolutely great! I too am the shy one, but getting better!

Here is my Odd Shot! Amazing whatyou see in an ordinary carpark!

Live in Ireland for any length of time and this becomes a way of life - and I'm a recluse.

Luke Wiley said...

Interesting shot.

Odd shots in holidays must be a global challenge.

Love this story, Katmey! And I understand because I am a very quiet person and MY husband will talk to anybody

My Odd Shot is up too.

B. Roan said...

My hubby is the same way. I'm always waiting for the food to come while he's chatting it up with someone. So, not so odd to me, yet it is odd.

Texas Travelers said...

Sounds like Martha and I.
Interesting photo and story.
Thanks for sharing.

Our odd shot is found
Here.

Oops! That was me...

My husband is the same way... He always says he has never seen a stranger, just friends he's not met... lol

No matter where we go, he can almost always run into someone he knows... even if it's been 20 years since he's seen them... lol

My odd shot is up - Prairie Visions!

Daryl said...

I love this ... I bet he and my late mother both made friends wherever they go/went ... she'd go shopping and by the time she left everyone in the store was her new best friend!

My shot is up BUT this is my first day back at the office after vacation so I may not have time to visit/comment on everyone's posts ... apologies up front!

:-Daryl

mannanan said...

I'm the shy one in our family. Just wouldn't think of chatting to a stranger face to face. Interesting post. Mine for today can be found at

Lake Lady said...

I'm also very shy but must have a "please talk to me" tattoo on my forehead because I find myself in these conversations! Great story.
Mine's up at http://gunbarrelcitydailyphoto.blogspot.com
I may get one of my other blogs, too but you can click over from there.

Marigold said...

I am reserved and my husband is really outgoing too. Nice shot. I have one posted too.

Pansy said...

I don't mind talking to people but my little brother doesn't like it at all. I have a cute odd shot. You must come and see.

JC said...

My Dad is the same way... he can talk to strangers for a very, very long time... while we wait.

shutter happy jenn said...

That's surely funny!

Here's mine:

Louis la Vache said...

Spontaneous conversation (as opposed to spontaneous combustion!) :-)

Did "Louis" capture an Alien Space Station?

bryan said...

Some people are just naturally good at talking/communicating.

Here's mine.

diane cook said...

Dragonstar said...

That's a lovely shot. It would happen round here, too.

I'm very late reporting in, but mine's been up since midnight.

Michele (Rocky Mtn.Girl) said...

I'm the same... I'm quite shy with strangers but if I'm working on my job, I'm not shy at all and will be the total opposite and quite open and warm with my customers!! LOL
Fun post you had today!

Kim said...

I'm shy too, but I have several friends who can talk to anyone. I'm not sure how they do it.

Here's Mine :)

diane cook said...

It's posted now Katney~Have a great day!

becky voyles said...

Well, I am more outspoken than my husband. But this reminded me of my best friend Penny who was visiting this weekend. She never meets a stranger either. I used to have to get on to her for talking to strangers! My Odd Ball is up

diane cook said...

I have added a link now Katney. Thanks for asking!

CrazyCath said...

Oh obviously! He looks extremely animated, and very happy doing his talking. Brilliant shot.

Mine is up.

Lilli & Nevada said...

That is funny my hubby is the quiet one when it comes to striking up a conversation, he tell me i don't have a shy bone in my body and will talk to a tree if it could talk back.

Well you inspired me to do another blog on Oregon so thanks for getting me started. I have a yahoo rver's group about Oregon but decided to do a blog instead
again thanks

Jan said...

It was nice seeing you today. Hope you had a great visit with your brother.
