#ThursdayDoors — Dump Doors Recipe

There are days when you have time to fold egg whites or roll out dough, and then there are days you’re busy and you throw together a dump cake.

There are days when you have time to plan when, where, and how you’ll photograph doors, and there are times when you’ve got to take what you’re given.

For Dump Doors you will need:

Doors

3-5 family members and possibly friends, all of whom are impatient, prone to mocking, photobombing, and fits of laughter

1 camera

1/2 cup curious onlookers

1/4 cup best intentions

1 tablespoon sun in your eyes

Optional photo editor program, to taste

Mix well.

Garnish with words and serve atΒ room temperature on Thursdays.

 

 

#ThursdayDoors is part of an inspired post series run by Norm Frampton.

    You know how those dump cakes often come out pretty darn good? Well, I’d say this doors post falls in that category – pretty darn good! Love the phone booth!

  2. I’ve never made a Dump Cake! I have all sorts of ingredients for a Dump Door post though.
    I always start with a rounded cup of Good Intentions. Your recipe is fabulous, and the collection of doors wonderful! It’s so varied. I love the Gothic arched church doors I think, and the red telephone box.

      Thank you very much πŸ™‚ Always pleased to receive your praise on my photos. Door love is definitely all about variation, so even these odds and ends have a place at the blog.
      Dump cake is RIDICULOUSLY rich and sweet, but it, too, has its place!

    Wow! What a great collection! Love the recipe, too. πŸ˜€ Yeah, I love that phone booth. (Gramma, what’s a “phone booth”?)

  4. Don’t be down in the dumps. Your recipe produced a wonderful end result. Based on this, I’d say I’ll take a dump (cake.) Ha! I just couldn’t resist. Happy Thursday, Joey.

    Very funny. Your doors came out much better than the dump cake I had at my mother-in-laws πŸ™‚ Love the phone booth and the symphony balcony. Lucky your family/friends are willing to supply their ingredients as well. I relate. When I saw the comment above mine I said, I didn’t write that – LOL Janet

    Maybe that’s my problem with finding doors. I never have the right ingredients! Great recipe! I had to look closer to find the door that was painted like the wall mural. Really cool idea there. πŸ™‚

  7. We were watching an episode of Hinterland, set in Wales (police procedural), when I noticed, out in the middle of nowhere, alongside a road was one of those very British phone booths. It was very much a WTH moment. Quite literally in the middle of nothing, with the hills completely bare of trees, there was a phone booth.

      Uncanny. Alicia, I’ve been watching Hinterland at bedtime for weeks now. They’re all so long and so often silent, I fall asleep quite nicely πŸ™‚ Takes me a week to get through! I just finished the one with the girl in the marsh. Not seen the odd phone booth, but will keep an eye out in upcoming episodes. I find the Welsh scenery breathtaking, don’t you?

      • The scenery is one of the pluses. Those cliffs!

        But I think each of the episodes we’ve seen could have been EASILY cut from 1:30 to about an hour – the padding slows it rather than proving atmospheric. Do we REALLY have to watch Tom cross the whole set from the door to his office every time he does it? Etc.

        I don’t fall asleep watching TV, but I can see how it would work that way.

        It’s too bad they’re too long – and husband won’t fast forward. If they’re going to have the longer show, it should have a longer plot.

        I keep telling him: I could write these things. Not entirely true – I just see more things coming than he does – but I had the same problem with Bosch, which is based on Michael Connolly’s (sp?) books and has him as producer – I think they dramatize every line in the books – much too long for me. Husband watched all three (?) seasons quite happily. Without me.

          Haven’t seen Bosch.

          I did see the phone booth episode yesterday, when Branwen called the police. I thought that was uncanny, too. The boy whose mother thought he drowned? And then the father almost drowned him? Fabulous writing, that one.

          I like the processing time, but I agree, some scenes are far too long.

          Falling asleep to the tv is a habit I developed when my husband went away. I cultivated it, really. I used to read, but that wasn’t working, I was so anxious and ill-at-ease. One of my friends told me to watch tv with the volume really low and try not to sleep, and now it’s very effective for me, some ten or so years later. It’s part of my routine. Ear plugs, too. Zzz

          • I admire military wives so much – it’s a special gift to hold a family together with that kind of yo-yo co-parenting. But I can understand how it might be hard to sleep some times.

            Glad you saw the phone booth. Uncanny.

              • And you guys survived, which is a testament either to love or stubbornness, and I don’t know that it matters much which. Not that I’m not a romantic at heart, but families need a lot of care, and it’s hard enough with two healthy parents present most of the time! When one gets sick (like me), or is a workaholic, or has obligations elsewhere, the strain is tough on everyone.

                I spent a lot of time with submarine crews on nuclear subs, coming back in those long trips from tests, and did a lot of listening.

                  I think all this “support our troops” would be better understood if people actually did the kind of listening you do.
                  It really is an overlooked lifestyle. I don’t think most people have a clue. But it’s always like that, as you say elsewhere, we don’t know the stories on our own — we must be told the stories to develop the empathy. SO many kinds of stories, the ties that bind, the struggles that come — everyone has chapters and chapters of stories like that.
                  It’s love. For sure, deep and abiding love. And I’m not a romantic, either. The Mister is, though.

                  • The stories I could tell you! Oh, I already do tell you one.

                    The logistics of being a service wife or husband or child or parent or grandparent are of WAITING. And having to do things meanwhile.

                    The problem is that the waits are too long for casual neighborly help – that’s not very good when the sub crew is going to be gone six months. Which is why people help each other who are in the same circumstance – if they can. It’s compounded horribly by people being moved so often they can’t establish ties.

                    I don’t know how you did it, but my hat’s off, lady.

                      That is #1. On post, people just do for one another, because everyone is far from home and true family. Sorta adopt one another through those times.
                      After we made it through the 15-month deployment, I figured we could make it through anything.

    Nothing wrong with a dump cake. Those are some pretty nice doors. Tell me. The Mental Health door. Was that a destination or just a coincident?

    I liked the gray and fading (it was a great door with three panels of glass smaller windows, Joey. , the grand and the yellow building with the triple door look, which has really only one door and two-sided windows.
