After days of constant whining, crying, fighting, tattling and finding out that your 4 year old daughter was showing her brother the "naughty finger", I am in need a little comic relief.  This picture makes me laugh out loud every time I see it.
So many thoughts pop into my brain as I stare at this photographic masterpiece.  

What the hell?
Who in the world?
Did that women play the cowardly lion in the Wizard of OZ movie?

Those are just a few of the unanswered questions that this photo provokes in me.  

What about you?  I would love to hear what thoughts pop into your brain when your see this picture.  Please leave me a comment.  If you are the 10th person to leave a comment on MY BLOG...facebook doesn't count...I will send you a lovely picture frame to display a photographic masterpiece of your very own.  



P.S. As any good photographer would, I do suggest using a fake rodent to jazz up those plain jane holiday portraits.  If your photographer doesn't offer a stuffed squirrel or a plastic prairie dog during your sitting, you know that you've been bamboozled.  


  1. Mail order bride for Cousin Carl who is in the slammer????? maybe he has the "rodent" charm that the little man in The Green Mile had?????

  2. Wow. "Cousin Carl" didn't enter my thoughts at all. Good one, Debi!

  3. Oops. I forgot to post what popped into my mind -
    How did you get a photograph of my Aunt Norma and who the heck is that guy with her? It is definitely NOT my uncle. I'm not even going to mention little Mickey. He belongs on a glue board. Any animal, er disgusting rodent, lovers out there, save your breath. They don't like me either. Ick. Ick. Ick.

  4. I believe the gentleman is a rodent breeder. He raises the little buggers in his basement. Lets them sleep in footie pj's. Then he gives gifts of dead baby mice on Easter. Oh wait, I think that is a creepy story from my past. CRAP! If you have not heard this story before, ask me! It's a hum-dinger of total bamboozlment!

    Ben is dying to be the 10th commenter - but he can barely post on FB let alone your blog. His idea was to post one word per comment spot until he made a sentence.

    Ann - gotta hear the story.

    Ben does think this guy looks like the old channel 15 weather man - neither one of us could think of his name but he used to give away trips and wear lays - never held a mouse but holds a strong resemblance to the rodent breeder.

  6. I really can't even comment because the picture is so ridiculous...except to wonder where the hell did you find it?!?

  7. Yes, I think that is who he means. Look Ben you are one comment closer to 10th, but so is everyone else!

  8. . . . cheating? If not then, WHOO HOO ! ! ! I win! (Eat that, Ben.)

  9. Congrats to Laura. I delivered her lovely picture frame today. I had high hopes of giving it to Ben, but he got lazy.

    Does anyone else think it's sad that I am rewarding my daughters preschool teacher for cheating??


I can't wait to hear from you!
