    I have been warned!!!!

  2. Beth (in NC) says:

    PS… I am so jealous of ANYONE who has been to the Galapagos… it is the holy land of my people.

  3. Two more blows and she’s fully inflated.

  4. temperance says:

    thanks for the early morning guffaw.

  5. Inflate-a-mom! I like that! Yow on anyone but a seal…they don’t have teats! 🙂

  6. Bahahahaha. 😀

  7. “GAHHH!!”

  8. SEA LIONS!!! We need more of those!

  9. Kristabelle says:

    Man! Momma is giving us the BACK OFF eye!!! YIPE!

  10. Oh my goshh.
    I’ve been having a terrible day, and this made me smile.
    Thank-you, CO, for the the cheering up Qte!

  11. “Honestly, you pick the most INAPPROPRIATE places to get hungry!”

  12. Hon Glad – Please say you’ll never go away.

  13. Oh, this is brilliant.

    And I’ve been there – I have said this to my son once or twice – never *much* meant it… not really.

  14. Von Zeppelin says:

    Actually, the momseal is giving a spirited rendition of the Galapagos National Anthem, and the little guy is looking to see if he left his GameBoy under there.

  15. divinebluesky says:

    The mom’s colors are really pretty.

  16. Hon Glad- *snerk*!

    Beth (in NC)you are a giant tortoise? Wow, good on ya!

  17. AuntieMame says:

    Do seals have teeth?

    (And am I the only one who has to go back to the home page to get to the next post now?)

  18. AuntieMame–yes indeed, seals have teeth, the better to eat fish with. A fellow my wife knew in graduate school was actually bitten by a seal during a tagging project. Wasn’t really the poor sealio’s fault, though, he was on the deck of a boat, there was a wave, and the seal just kind of slid across the deck to chomp him. He was OK, but had to get a rabies shot. Oh, and the surprisingly golden creature above is a sea lion of some sort, not a seal–visible ears are a dead giveaway.

  19. She’s hitting the high C! I bet the camera lens shattered right after this picture.

  20. No, AuntieMame, I have to too. Theo, Meg, NOMTOM, TJ, can you help us? We have to navigate out of CO in order to go to the next or previous thread/picture lunacy.

    The old system was working just fine, if that can be returned to us, that would be nice. KTHXBY

  21. But Mom, the bebeh has not yet achieved sufficient blorpitude.

  22. Nice onomatopoeia on the mouseover.. YEEEEESSS, I finally used 7th grade English!

  23. AuntiMame and Katrina, there’s always the “Recent Posts” box in the right column.

  24. Katrina — we dint doit. TypePad’s still working out the kinks with the new navigation features, tho.

    (please try to bear with this; the old system really, really didn’t work fine, and the new one will be much better)

  25. AuntieMame- Babs has fixed the problem! Go to the Recent Posts and *poof* you can transport right there! Thanks, Babs.

  26. (yeah, I’ve been using that a lot in the past few days too)

  27. AuntieMame says:

    I figured they were playing with the page setup, because yesterday the comment section suddenly developed “Next Page” links when there were lots of comments.

    The “Recent Posts” list is nice, but it was also nice just to be able to navigate to the previous or next photo at the top of the page.

    It must be forum spring cleaning time. My local newspaper is sprucing up their forum options, too.

  28. Spring?!! Dare we hope???

  29. divinebluesky says:

    Theo – as a former Minnesotan, I would caution against getting your hopes up this soon. I think the six months of winter still have a few months to go, alas. (That’s why I’m in California now 🙂

  30. As a former Ohioan, I would just like to say DAMN YOU CALIFORNIA!! GRAAAHR

    er. Not really. Hehe.

  31. AuntieMame says:

    Pfft. It’s been spring all winter in Colorado…

  32. Mary (the first) says:

    Only 6 months of winter? Sometimes .. it seems like more.

  33. Dzhan Ghoti says:

    I was thinking more along the lines of, “COLD NOSE, COLD NOSE, COLD NOSE!!!”

  34. If you’re nibbling on a nipple, are you nippbbling?


  35. Drink baby sea lion drink pretty soon you will be swimming with the big boys.

  36. “the big bouys” 😉

  37. berthaservant says:

    :: invisible nom tag ::

  38. Haha maybe she’s putting the kid to bed. She’s signing a lulluby while giving the baby milk 😀

  39. Meg, I have been meaning to say this for a while: you are really an onamatopoetic genius.

  40. mama sea lion has flipped out.

  41. Von Zeppelin says:

    @ CP– “Nipbling” is what Janet Jackson was wearing at the Superbowl halftime show a few years ago.

  42. [snerk] …yeah, that was the REAL wardrobe malfunction.

  43. “Gah!! Son, how many times have I told you – NO TEETH!!!”

  44. Beth (in NC) says:

    Ok, so, I used to be from Illinois not all that long ago…. and NC just had a “snow day” because of four inches. Hilarious. and also… awesome.
