widespread puppy

if you ever want to be popular, walk a puppy through the lobby of a westin hotel at 1 AM on new years eve.

we went to charlotte for widepsread panic on wednesday and sugarhoney came with us. she was the star of the city.

tongue out tuesday

while walking her past the nascar hall of fame, a cop drove by, leaned her full torso out the window, gave a thumbs up, and yelled "that is the best dog ever!"

kevin carried her on the elevator to avoid her scaring people in their fancy clothes.  a cop in the lobby saw this and said, "uh oh, is that dog too drunk to walk?"

dozens of people passing by stopped, turned around, and squealed "PUPPY!!!" to each other, asking to pet her. she just wagged her tail, cool as a cucumber.

one kind young man flyyyiiiiiing high on new years spirit on the full elevator grabbed her ears (lovingly), got nose to nose with her and yelled "YOU ARE JUST THE CUTEST LITTLE FUCKER!!!!!!"

the show was excellent, the band sounded great, the setlist was thoughtful, uplifting, and everybody was having a good time...

it was an awesome way to ring in the new year. 

best wishes for a healthy and happy 2015 to all!

WTF Wednesday: Castration, Swans, Opera

It's the last WTF Wednesday of the year - WTF?!

Let's begin with a billboard on Tunnel Road in East Asheville. 

dont castrate your best friend

Don't Castrate Your Best Friend! I will let you draw your own conclusions on this. I do see some validity. But then again...WTF?! 

Here is a fun golf game complete with 6 hazard trees. The only thing you need is a club! 

Anyone care for a mutant chicken wing? 

mutant wing

She looks way too happy to be giving a flu shot. 

Here's a lovely enormous beige swan sculpture which also holds your pens. 

Two pens. 

A wonderful 4 CD set of Opera for People Who Hate Opera. 

Surround sound, because if there's one thing you want when you're listening to music you hate, it's to be completely surrounded by the music you hate. 

Last but not least is Sugarrascal. She ran through the house with the toilet paper still attached to the wall, chewed a little pile into confetti, and finished with some chewing on Pouncey's food bowl on a dog bed.

As with all wtf wednesdays, there are no answers, only questions leading to more questions.

WTF Wednesday - Banana, Waffle, Aerobics

Greetings, Wednesday! Greetings WTF! 

Welcome to a short and sweet holiday edition of WTFW. 

In the past month I have found 2 food items left behind in cupboards by previous owners. Both expired in 2011.

things i found in cupboards from prior owners

Moving on to an 80's wunderproduct. 

Better off raw?And did somebody just take a bite off the front corner of that meat slab?

This 1979 book was full of black and white drawings and step by step instructions to show you how to enjoy exercise the way you've never enjoyed it before!

Last but not least, here is a waffle faced hound dog.
Happy Holidays!

WTF Wednesday: Humping Seals, Smoking Snorkelers, Driving Dogs

Good day, Wednesday. Good day, WTF.

The pickins are rather slim this week as I spent several days in Tallahassee for a sweet 6 year old's birthday and haven't hit the thrift like usual. 

Here is a princess castle cake that Kevin and I decorated. It may not look exaaactly like the one in the video, but it did not fall over. 

hey we tried
Next we have a charming story from the BBC.  Seals discovered having sex with penguins. (warning, video is graphic - One seal eats his penguin mate).

Antarctic scientists have recorded at least 4 instances of this behavior - the only times pinnipeds (mammals) have been known to attempt mating with birds.

Jesus Christ Mother Nature, WTF?!

Here are a couple of dolls.

Research has shown that old couples look alike, but this is pushing it. 

Next up, what better place to store your hot water bottle and Advil? 

Here is a full page ad for Newport Cigarettes in the 1977 issue of Country Style magazine. 

Snorkeling and cigarettes go together like seals and penguins. Why bother, indeed.

Now for a couple of photos sent to me by my brother.  I am including his captions. 

Ok, you can drive this time.

So I was thinking maybe have Chinese for dinner tonight honey...what do you think?

ruff time for pups

since the passing of nacho just 2 months ago, 4 of my good friends and family's dogs have gone to join him in doggie heaven.

betsy had to say goodbye to tally.

kid D had to say goodbye to baxter.

sargentina had to say goodbye to baron von sleevenstein, aka steve the dog.

and then my parents had to say goodbye to henry.

it's been ruff! i would like to extend my sincerest sympathy to these 4 families - losing a beloved pet is traumatic and takes a lot of time to heal from that loss. 

the only thing that i know of to speed the healing has four legs and rhymes with fluppy.
