19/365 - TI - I "TI" My Mind To It & I Did It!

"TI" your mind to a task and getter done! - Pretty good I think!
The recent "Tuesday Inspiration" theme WITH ABANDONE was brilliantly illustrated by PB Friend 365DandFeby. Aka - Felecia, Feby, Feebs. 1/11/2011 post

I let Felecia know that I was really impressed with her athletic skill and strength as a result of her post.

She jokingly (I think) suggested that I give the old pole a try and do a post on PB. "Yea right."

Of course, never letting anything rest in my mind, I reconsidered her suggestion. "If I "TI" my mind to this challenge, I can do it! I will do it!"

I forgot about it - until this morning while talking a hike through a beautiful wooded area to snap pictures. Twenty one degrees. Great morning.

As I looked at the forest of trees I saw instead a forest of poles. I saw Felecia on the pole in my mind's eye and remembered my acceptance of her challenge.

I picked an appropriate "pole", practiced a couple of times. No big deal!!! Athletic ability and strength - nonsense! Set up the tripod. Set the timer. Snapped. Ran to the pole. Success!!

I "TI" my mind to it - and I did it. take that Felecia!!

Lesson Learned:
You must wear more than jeans and long underwear if you are going to pole dance on a tree unless you are prepared to shred your inner thighs! OUCH

The Tuesday Inspiration” began in 2009 when two PB members started setting each other a challenge on a… Tuesday. Very soon afterwards, it was decided to open this up to other PB members, followed by the idea that we should not reveal what the subject is, so that other members could compare how different members view a single theme. The Tuesday Inspiration is not a contest or a challenge, but a group of people all agreeing to post their interpretation of a single theme on Tuesdays. Each week, one of the contributors sets the theme. There are now over 40 members contributing to the TI. We have only two “rules”: don’t include the subject in the TI title or tags and please comply with standard PB guidelines on courtesy, etc. If you would like to take part, please contact Helen Girafferacing.
????? YAY!!!!! I absolutely adore this post Dan! Yes, the inner thighs definitely take a beating no matter what kind of pole one uses.
FABULOUS! You done good!
