We determined that cupids (fat babies with wings) could be scored as I did not fear a lightning strike from a symbol that predates Christianity. Kristie of The Water Shack Lady introduced use to Hilly Billy Balls (gazing globes) and MorningGlory gave us Flingo-flingos

"Many photos due to all the angles needed to capture everything. Oh, and I got caught! I was brazenly taking photos from the sidewalk when the Mr. came out and spotted me. I told him I was working on an "art project", he seemed dubious but, let me click a couple more."
The Field Reporter Blood Runs Deep
"While on vacation last weekend I saw a house in dad's neighborhood that I wanted to get pics of- so when we went out later that day I had to explain the game to him, then I asked him to slow down so I could take some quick pics from the car. He told me to go ahead and get out so I could get better shots, that the people wouldn't mind.
hesitantly I did.
Sure as sh*t the lady came out all wild eyed asking what I was doing....so my dad just smiled and told her I was taking pics for a yard gnome contest.
she paused for a minute then got a big grin and said, "well then don't forget the one over there in the tree!"
NICE WORK DAD"
