The Yard Art Game

I found a hilarious Blog the other day- "Along Life's Highway-The Yard Art Game."

So I submitted one of my favorite Floridian yard art pics.....

and I scored 23 points!

I'd LOVE to take a cross country road trip and document trailer park yard art for a coffee table book. I'm totally serious.

If only ELLEN would finance my project!

Or one of my fabulous fans. Ahem.

Friend Of The Devil

What would cause the dogs to run up and down, in and out, back and forth and bark non-stop from 2am to 5am this morning?







Aren't they cute?

NO! They are the devil.

Now I know why people cut off and sell their ding dongs!

P. Bones

I can't believe I forgot about this picture on my cell from The Lewis & Clark Festival last weekend.

And I really can't believe we didn't buy one.

Raise your hand if you know what "Coon P. Bones" are................

Random Thoughts.

I've been lame again and need to thank Claire & Michelle for the following awards!

Thanks Claire!

Thanks Michelle!

I promise I'll follow the rules in a few days and pass along the awards...or at least try.

In the meantime, check out the awesome colors that graced our sky a few days ago.

And my first preggo shot.

One friend told me it looked like a scene from The Sound Of Music. LOL.

Oh and before I forget- Happy Birthday Barry Manilow.
I'm a secret 'Fanilow'.

Do Llamas Eat Bananas?

Finally something fun to Blog about!

Today we were out driving around and saw a llama way out in a field.

We named him 'Frank the Jolly Llama' and D waved and called him like a dog.

Then he tried to bribe him closer with a banana.

It worked! Frank hauled ass running toward us!

He was up the hill in no time.

So D tried to give him the banana.

I don't think llamas like bananas.

Sorry man, we don't know nothing about feeding no llamas.

I think he forgave us though.

Or not!

"I shall ignore you stupid city folk."

Time to go google "what do llamas eat" so we'll know better next time.

Are Pregnant People Lame?

Because I seriously can't find anything to Blog about lately.


The most excitement for me this week consisted of:

1) Buying these baby moccasins at the Lewis and Clark Festival.

2) Finding the biggest asparagus I've ever seen in my life.

It's huge!

I know, I know. I'd better take it easy before someone gets hurt.

Say Cheese

I'll admit that sometimes I miss certain conveniences of The Big City. Nothing like not being able to find feta cheese at the only grocery store in town to push a hormonal pregnant chick over the edge. It's not really even a huge deal because I'm still not sure if I'm supposed to eat stupid feta cheese or not- because I read that I'm only allowed certain types of pasteurized cheese and I don't even know if feta is one of them. ANNOYING.

So I head home pouting and dreaming of the days when I lived in Atlanta and my grocery store ALWAYS had lots of feta choices.
But then my mind jumps to an article I read that said Atlanta is the 2nd least safe city in the U.S., and I'm reminded of why we traded certain conveniences for peace of mind.

And even though I am feta-less, I can honestly say that when I look back....

I like what I see.

I'll take cows over crime any day.

Thanks for the inspiration Lola Nova.

I sure hope this kid has a sense of humor.

It's hard to blame Pete when I'm not certain it was all his fault.


Guess I'll never know.

On to more important things like..........my birthday!

Happy Birthday to me.

I sure hope I do.

Mystery Caption Contest!

Today I'm celebrating my 200th post with a photo caption contest!

My friend Big Headed Bob gave me a new idea yesterday, so this will be a little different than my previous mystery photo contests.

The person with the funniest caption to the shot below wins an 8x12 print of their choice.


I took this at the Mermaid Parade in NYC a few summers ago.

Make me laugh people.

Those of you who know me and D also know that we both possess the same sick and twisted sense of humor.......pretty much anything goes around here.

Which is why I think it's funny that D doesn't want me wearing one of my favorite T's out in public anymore now that I'm pregnant.

I have no idea why.

I know, someone should wash my mouth out with soap.
Which is why I am mentioning this FREE SOAP CONTEST for an extra chance to win some :)
