Things that make me go… Hmmmm

1. Are permed foreheads in this season?

2. Did I leave the iron on?

3. Worsted wool or Mohair? WHICH MAKES THE BEST SWEATEUW!?

Rescued McMonkersons

According to picture-taker Simple Tess;

“I caught my mother’s cat playing with this baby chipmunk. He curled up in my hand and did not seem to want to leave. I found his family’s hole and set him by it. He slowly retreated to the hole, but turned around to look back out at me and considered coming back to my hands! It was love.”

Somewhere off the Coast of Maine…

Aye, a lighthouse keeper’s life is a solitary one.  Days spent searching the horizon; nights listening for the faint echo of bell or horn…  Sometimes I make shadow puppets on passing humpback whales.  Oh, it is a lonely life…

A Slice-of-Life Story

So Kenny, Marv and me hit the links over the weekend.  It was a tough course, with plenty of “beachfront property” and tricky doglegs—or, as we call them, “legs.”

So anyway, Marv overclubbed past the apron on the fifth, but hit the green with a pitch-and-run and drained it for par. Meanwhile, Kenny found his sweet spot and swatted a wormburner straight to the pin for a double eagle!  Or something.

I have no idea what any of that meant, Russ C.

Broccolis? for moi?

Amazingly, lil’ Kumanoko always appears to have his mouth open in astonishment. Prolly amazed by his own cuteness. Even HE can’t believe himself!

The Sarah Bernhardt of hamsters

Sender-Inner Courtney S. says: “This is my robo dwarf hammie. When I hold him (he hates to be held) he flops on his back and just gives up. He’s over dramatic.”
