Cool pics from around the horn

My bff Gretchen is always texting me the funniest pictures, so I thought I'd share some with you:
This is her dog Domino, being a sleepy head:
Isn't that the cutest dog ever?

This is her Driving Miss Nommy portrait, wearing my friend Laurie's hat: To recycle a line from my birdy blog, "That's not the way to the Piggly Wiggly, Hoke!"

Here's a pic from our local high-toned grocery story Wegman's:Tee hee!

I also took a funny pic of my own the other day while walking to the library in my little town:

Okay--my town prides itself on its Victorian architecture. But really--a "Victorian Crematory?" And not even "a" but THE Victorian Crematory!? Eww. And if the patrons park there and go inside, will they ever come out to move their cars? "This Ford belongs to that big pile of dust we made yesterday."

My sister, who got hooked on birdwatching when I took her out with me back in February when I went to Texas, has been trying to photograph birds. She's new to birds and their behavior, so some of her photos look like this:
She calls that one "HUH?" And then there's this one, titled "IDUNNO:" I dunno either. None of my birder friends can figure out what the hell it is either!
But some of her photos are pretty spectacular, and I'm very proud to have gotten her so interested in birds. Look at all these male Northern Shovelers:Beautiful! And check out this Turkey Vultures having a meal down the road:

Oh how I wish Sparky would let me get us a dog.

Real Live Lesbian said...

Love the dog pics! I'm gonna have to pass on the nut pocket though!

Fran said...

Oh I am so jealous that you have a Wegman's!!!

In any case, I love those photos, what a cute dog!

And the cars of the cremated... wow!

BeckEye said...

Is that a nut in your pocket...or it it two? And are you happy to see me?

Unknown said...

Best laugh I have had all day...thank YOU! ;)

The nut pocket one made me howl and the doggie ones are so damn cute.

I love how not only is it the Victorian Crematory, but that it's in quotation marks to boot. Makes you wonder who actually said it.

Karen Zipdrive said...

I think I used to date that chick in the last photo.

Randal Graves said...

I wonder if anyone was ever asked Is that a nut pocket in your pocket are you playing pocket pool with your nuts?

Is there The Restoration Crematory out there?

Dr. Monkey--Sparky just doesn't want to have to take care of the dog!

Real Live Lesbian--I'm with you there!

Fran--Wegman's is really nice. I knew you'd like Domino-she's a sweety.

BeckEye--hee hee.

Dusty--glad you enjoyed it.


Zip--me too.

Randal--anyone for a Renaissance Crematory?
