Musical Micro Insects

Susan from Stony River sets a weekly
Challenge Picture each Monday,
where a picture paints 140 characters, or even fewer.
Photo prompt courtesy of her blog.
The Mothman A 12-foot-tall (3.7 m), stainless-steel
sculpture by artist Robert Roach, located in Point Pleasant.

Beauty and the beast clasped each other in adoration. He might have moth-eaten wings, but she loved that he didn't mind her Rain Mac (132 characters with spaces)


Call it bare-faced cheek, but the stark reality shone before them as striking as his eyes were red and his wings moth-eaten(124 characters
with spaces)








The Mothman is a 'cryptid' reportedly seen in the Point Pleasant area of West Virginia from November 12, 1966, to December 1967. Most observers describe him as a man-sized creature with large reflective red eyes and large wings.

  5. I watched this movie about the Mothman with my husband years ago and it gave me terrible, terrible nightmares. I will never look at a moth the same way again.

  6. The "bum" shot is hilarious. Very well played. I liked that they were able to overlook their differences and fine love beneath the exterior.

  7. Lovely! And 'cheeky' too...Thank you for the smile.

  12. Beauty abd the Beast is a wonderful reference for this picture. Well done.
    I loved dirty dancing and hungry eyes is one of my favorites from the movie.
    She's like the wind was written by Patrick S. what a raw talent he was.

  13. Now that's just not fair! Patrick Swayze dancing and singing. I can't possibly concentrate on anything else for the rest of the day. LOL.

    I liked your two stories and the take on the Mothman. Creepy film!

  14. I do love the mutual attraction and the ability to overlook each others "flaws"! Been looking for someone like that for years! Swayze was always a favorite and your clips brought back such great, if sad, memories -- he was such an incredible talent and too young to die as he did. Have a great week!

  15. I love the moth-eaten wings idea. Too funny.
    Could NOT look at the Patrick Swayze videos. Tears in my eyes at the thought. Maybe later. My sister and I used to watch Dirty Dancing when her kids were asleep, so they wouldn't see us oohing and ahhing and swooning.

  17. I enjoyed both your stories this week--I think the first one is my favourite, though. Also, thanks for making me click on Hungry Eyes, and relive one of Patrick's best movies...now of course I have to watch the DVD today!
    Have a great week. Cheers.

  19. Those two are very good ones of PS. Just thought of it, he isn't just an actor but also a great dancer.

  20. Love your first one about the Beauty & the beast. That was the first thing I thought of when I saw the photo. Plus the photo of little boy pointing at his hiney is cute.
    LOVE, LOVE your songs! I adored Patrick Swayze and miss him - much to young to be gone.
    Dirty Dancing is one of my favorite movies... "Nobody puts Baby in the corner..." A classic line.

  21. Awh thanks everyone.
    I'm glad, too, we can bring Patrick Swayze back just for a few delicious moments. The thrill and warmth of the songs and his performances are his great legacy. Enjoy the film again Lorie :O)

  22. Great song choices. Now I want to see Dirty Dancing again. :)

  24. Bare "faced"? I am thinking anatomy lessons are in order. ;)

    Too funny! i love this. I bet Susan does, too!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I think I like your first take better-opposites attract I guess :)

  26. The Mothman is fascinating, but I love your choices for this weeks music. Patrick was such a cutie pie wasn't he. I can't really say he was handsome as he was more CUTE! I drool when I see him I'll tell ya! Love the songs. Thanks for playing. Sure hope you come back next week too & don't forget about our give-away over at Conductor Larry's at Cakeblast (link is on my blog).

  27. Madeleine, I love the moth-eaten wing bit! Of course that will balance the scale with his goofy-dressed lady friend.

  33. Good slant on this one. However, I fear that I will be singing

    "Tale as old as time, song as old as rhyme"

    in my head for the rest of the day. :)
