I know. You’re tired of red, white and blue posts today.
So here’s something to keep you entertained for a couple minutes. Promise: no flags, fireworks or parades. No heavy lifting. Just fun.
When Riley’s petsitter came over with this painting she’d bought for him, we all had a big laugh. Not only does it LOOK like him, but the text captures his attitude of … entitlement. It was a great gift!
Yeah, my writing sometimes feels like it belongs in a decomposition book instead of a composition book. I saw this one at Powell’s in Portland.
This came in the mail the other day. No warning, either. The envelope’s return address read Costco and nothing else.
Here’s a closer look. So–how do they KNOW I’m old enough to be in this target market? It’s Costco, after all, not Social Security. Well, surprise, Costco! Other parts of me may be falling apart, but I still have almost all of my hearing. (raspberry sound)
Wandering around Sur la Table the other day I saw these.
A few jars away were these.
So — why isn’t it an escargot fork? Or for that matter, snail tongs? I’ve never made them, so I don’t know.
Just when I thought there were no new product combinations, I saw this: a potato chip chocolate bar.
In case Prohibition comes back, we can all be prepared.
Making our own seems to be the way to go, given how many treats are now made in China. There’s a bit of a backlash going on against Chinese pet treats, thank goodness. I wouldn’t trust a packaged offering like this, though. I’d make from scratch.
I’m pretty sure the “Willie” referred to is Willie Nelson. There’s a song with the same name about him. But frankly, I think we’d be better off if Obama asked it of himself and referred to Bill Clinton. I miss Bill.
This really goes without saying. Right?
Sagan was a profound guy. Yeah, Powell’s again.
I love Chucks. But there’s something about hairy legs that makes this photo less than cute.
If I had a dog like that, I’d buy these. I love the three-pack.
Or this threesome of piggies.
I love summer.
I’m thinking about bestowing this title weekly, what do you think?
This is seriously cool. I wish my bed looked this cool.
What cool things have you seen around lately?
