Sunday Selfies A Study in Why, Why Me?

It’s Sunday and that means selfie day. The Cat On My Head is hosting the blog hop for our unique selfies.  Pop over and visit them or better yet join in on the fun.

The picture here is an old picture, 2015, but it describes exactly what I was doing and my feelings about it.  I love to see the water in with the ice move and I get so very excited which in turn brings my inquisitive claws out.  In 2015 the water soaked mom as she was waking up. Once again  mom was waking up and didn’t have a camera so we decided the old photo should explain matters.  Sorry about the picture quality.

Mom was a tad upset with me. I decided to give myself a ‘Time Out.’

Have a great day everyone.

Skimming Through The Everglades

 

walkmiamiMom and dad had allotted  3 days to see all the sights in Florida.  They had spent most of their holidays living it up in Georgia.  One day had gone and so it meant our travellers had two days to see what they could.                                                                            shokszmcropMom and dad quickly got outta Miami and headed for anywhere else!  They drove past the airport a couple of times and both admired the size of the airport.   At this point dad decided to use the GPS as they  wanted to see something different.  Makes sense…go for it dad.  So he asked mom where she wanted to go.  Mom decided she wanted to go on an air boat ride through the Everglades and look at the wildlife.  Dad thought this was a cool idea so off they flitted in their rented Fiat.                                                              a4smExcitement went through the car at the unique sign.  They hadn’t seen a sign like this before.  No crocs though…except for mom…MOL  They must be getting close…

There it is!!  Gator Park.    Kinda touristy.  Off they went to act like the tourists they were.                                                                  a3zmThey both got t-shirts that had an alligator on the front and said, “Bite Me.”

There’s the air boat they rode in.

airboatWhoa, this is some kind of boat!!  Bet its fast.

a3smOh my!!  Hope there aren’t any snakes….I hate snakes!  Slimy, cold thingies.

allie2smMom is sorry for the blurriness of the picture but she got excited and didn’t take time to focus properly.  At least she’s honest about her screw ups.                                                            aaa2These are Mr. Google’s water lilies.  Mom could not get a picture close enough to show the detail in the lilies.  These water lilies only open half way…they never completely open and only grow in the deepest part of the water.

azmBig bugg…guy!  Apparently these brutes live for 30 to 50 years.

Mom said she really liked this waterfall and after the boat ride was very relaxing.                                                                         alsm       You looked way better before the air boat ride mom and dad!  Holy cwap, this seeing different locations looks hazardous to one’s health.

Here mom have a mint julep, it will eliminate the vapours you seem to have…..very badly.                                                           aaaThere you have it.  Day two in Florida is coming to a close.  They have one more day…what will they do?  We’ll see next installment my friends.                                                         Kali and Shoks

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wednesday’s Wordy As….. Hi There!

When mom and dad were in Barkerville they got their picture taken.  Prepare yourself…..this is unique my friends.

Mom in a bonnet and dad looking like he’d beat the cwap outta anybody interfering with his family.  MOL

Today is also Collect Rocks Day so Bashful and Chip went out to the Lane to chat with the local stoners and rockers.  I see them headed for home now.  They have some pebble with them.

Hey Shoko  I would like to introduce you to my new friend.  She is very shy.

What is her name Chip?  Gee, I don’t know.  She grabbed a ride with us when we left Barkerville.  Really?  Where did she hide?  She climbed into the bag with the other flats.  She must be hungry….what does she eat Chip?  The same as you and Bashful?  Yeah, let’s get your mom to give  her some of the good stuff, sifted sand.  Is she alone or did someone come with her from Barkerville?  Another stone came with her.  This little pebble is quite young.  How old is she Chip?  I don’t know for sure but she is around my age.  Bashful is talking with her friend and thinks he may stay with her as she is very upset about leaving Barkerville.  OK, I’m sure Bashful will help her.  You make her comfy Chip and try to find out her name.

Mom is very happy with her canning from the other day.  The end is now in sight.

Kali is delighted with our Yeowwy Green Fish mom got from the opening of Pet Smart.

I wonder if Bashful will bring the upset stone home?  Guess I’ll find out soon.
