SPC: Swiss Wind-Up Cars

Swiss-cars_600This picture was taken in Geneva, Switzerland. I liked it because these two mini wind-up “cars” look like they’re having a conversation looking out the window.

If memory serves, they were only for show, but I liked their personalities. They looked like real characters to me.

It’s okay to pick just one question to answer if you’re in a hurry:~) Just let me know which you picked.

  1. What are the names of the two cars?
  2. What are they doing in the picture window?
  3. What are they saying to each other as they look out the window.

Have fun, be creative and enjoy!

The Mysterious Case of the Missing Aliens


Story Photo Challenge

Many years ago, two aliens came to earth for their yearly vacation.

They chose Earth because most humans can’t see aliens. They are usually beyond our visual spectrum, which makes our planet a good vacation location for aliens.

That is unless something happens to the aliens and something DID happen to these two.

Something scared them so badly, they hid in the rocks to escape but became stuck and couldn’t escape.

Poor things might have been found sooner, but they paid for the bare-bones vacation travel insurance. Big mistake!

It took light years before the insurance company realized they hadn’t returned and contacted AVGB (Alien Vacations Gone Bad).

AVGB was more conscientious. They did a Google search, translated into their alien language, and found the pictures on Linda’s From Roses to Rainbows site.

Immediately, an AVGB detective was sent to solve the mystery of what happened to these aliens. This detective had to take human form to conduct the investigation.

This is where you come into the story. The AVGB detective has selected you as the human form!

So, investigate and tell us all what happened to these aliens.

Questions to consider in your investigation:

  1. Where did the aliens come from?
  2. Who was after them?
  3. Why’d they hide in the rocks and couldn’t escape?
  4. When did they arrive in Earth’s history?
  5. What does your final AVGB report say happened to them?

No time to play the challenge? That’s okay with me:~) Try the Quickie Question.
