    The theme for this week's contest is Blue Collar. People working at manual trades -- carpenters, plumbers, electricians, construction workers, machine tool operators, miners, all that stuff. No media images, please. Usual avatar rules -- maximum image size 200 x 200 pixels, maximum file size 1 meg.

    So, it's off to work we go! Here's my entry: an electrician.

    Would you consider working in a retail establishment as "blue collar?"

    If it's just working behind a counter serving customers and ringing up purchases, no. If it's something like a hardware store job that involves cutting material or similar manual work, then yes.

    Ah ok, the whole idea of "blue collar" workers is alien to me, so I wasn't sure.

    Interesting theme. I'll have to give this some thought.

    There are four seasons in Canada: fall, winter, spring, and road construction!

    I have absolutely no idea how people brought themselves to do that.

    Summit Plummet was quite enough for me

    All good entries so far. Can we drum up a few more? I'd like to have at least six or seven before I put up the poll thread.

    Sorry to post twice in a row, but could we possibly have just two more entries? One? It's an easy theme. There are millions of images out there.

    I hear crickets . . . :sigh:

    Well, I don't think it is and I've decided to stick this one out.

    ^LOL, Avro, you should come to Bavaria where we have only 2 seasons: winter and road repair time :D
    Of the 5 roads and highways that lead to my town, currently 4 are being repaired and the fifth is consequently jammed.

    Awesome topic! I must think a bit of an entry. When is the deadline?
