Thursday Thirteen...Black and White items


13 Black and White Items that I like!


1. Checker Board pattern.....for checker boards or floors.




2, Cows.....Holsteins Diary Cows.




3. Crossword puzzles....Especially the New York Times daily puzzel




4. Keyboards.....I love music.




5. Dalmatians.....also known as "firehouse" dogs. I liked the movie 101 Dalmatians too.






6. Saddle Oxford Shoes....we used to call them "Rah Rahs" because the cheerleaders wore them.







7. The Jolly Roger Pirate Flag....probably because of all the Johnny Depp Movies.








8. Penguins.....little arctic birds dressed in a tuxedos. Can you say "Happy Feet?"










9. Panda Bears...The Panda was believed to have magical powers that could ward off natural disasters and evil spirits. Writings about the Pandas can be traced back 3,000 years. They were even kept as pets by Chinese Emperors.







10. Pepe Le Pew....cartoon character.





11. Soccer Balls....all my children played soccer.






12. Zebra Swallowtail Butterfly....very dramatic.





13. Zebra.....They are best known for their distinctive white and black stripes, which come in different patterns unique to each individual. They are generally social animals and can be seen in small harems to large herds.

What a great list! Penguins, zebras and dalmations are all such adorable animals. My favorite cat when I was growing up was all white with one black ear and a black tail, so I'd put him on this list, too. (Thanks for visiting my TT)

Oh, your mention of Pepe LePew made me smile!! I loved him -- especially that "hello beb-bee"! Oh heavens--I haven't thought of him in years and how he was always in love with the b/w cat!
Great TT and thanks for the giggle!
