Buddies! December 22, 2018

Posted by nrhatch in Gratitude, Happiness, Travel & Leisure.

What is it about minions?

They’re not terribly cuddly.

They’re rather ungainly.

They’re often untimely.

They often misbehave.

They’re terribly naughty.


So . . . what is it about minions that makes them so popular?

Aah . . . that’s it!

Theyโ€™re weird and wonderful!

nrhatch - December 22, 2018

Agreed. Funny little buddies!

2. Jill Weatherholt - December 22, 2018

Iโ€™ve often wondered that myself. ๐Ÿ˜‰Great photos, Nancy!

nrhatch - December 22, 2018

Thanks, Jill!
Maybe it’s because minions are S~M~I~L~E inducing. ๐Ÿ˜€

3. Joanne Sisco - December 22, 2018

Because they’re so damn cute! Yes, I love minions.

nrhatch - December 22, 2018

By the end of the first Despicable Me ~> sold on minions! ๐Ÿ˜€

Joanne Sisco - December 22, 2018

Me too ๐Ÿ™‚

4. mybeautfulthings - December 22, 2018

I’m bemused too but the last shot perhaps explains it. ๐Ÿ™‚

nrhatch - December 22, 2018

LOVE explains a lot. ๐Ÿ˜€

Maybe the underdog thing.

nrhatch - December 22, 2018

I enjoy listening to their stream of consciousness (i.e, totally incomprehensible chatter) when a single recognizable word pops into view. That and the way they say, “BUDDIES!”

6. Tippy Gnu - December 22, 2018

I suspect it’s because everybody is somebody’s minion.

nrhatch - December 22, 2018

And maybe because we all want to be BUDDIES!

7. granny1947 - December 22, 2018

Awww….so sweet,

nrhatch - December 22, 2018

They are grin-inducing for me too, Kathy.

8. Val Boyko - December 22, 2018

They do make me smile! That’s quite the parade ๐Ÿ˜Š

nrhatch - December 22, 2018

The parade was great ~ it exceeded our expectations.

I’m going to share some more pix in a future post, including floats from Madagascar & Shrek.

9. joyroses13 - December 22, 2018

Awh! Yes, just gotta love the Minions, I heard they sing quite well too. ๐Ÿ™‚ And they have plenty words of wisdom. ๐Ÿ™‚

nrhatch - December 22, 2018

And Gru likes them too!

10. roughwighting - December 23, 2018

The first time I watched a minion movie with my young grandkids, I was perplexed. These things aren’t cuddly or cute or even particularly nice. But by the end of the movie, I was besotted. Weird! Great parade photos of the weird lovable minions.

nrhatch - December 23, 2018

Same here, Pam. There’s something about minions that makes us fall in LOVE.

11. Anne Lene @ MinimalistSometimes - December 24, 2018

Ahh, theyโ€™re just darn cute ๐Ÿ˜€

nrhatch - December 24, 2018

They iz that! Hope that we’ll continue to see you out and about in 2019. All the best in the New Year!

Anne Lene @ MinimalistSometimes - December 25, 2018

Yes, Iโ€™ll be rattling around Iโ€™m sure ๐Ÿ˜‰ Have an awesome New Years ๐ŸŽ‰

nrhatch - December 26, 2018

We had a wonderful time this year ~ not much in the way of shopping or exchanging gifts, but the gifts we gave were hits.

And the gifts we got “enhanced our holiday cheer.” ๐Ÿ˜€

And we ate well ~> yummy appetizers, a delicious buffet dinner, mulled cider with applejack or maple liquor . . . and homemade Christmas cookies!

12. L. Marie - December 24, 2018

The minions are so adorable.
Have a great Christmas!!!

nrhatch - December 25, 2018

Thanks, LM! We had a FABULOUS day with my sister, BIL, 2 nieces and one niece’s husband of 2 years ~ plus 2 dogs and a cat. And the traffic between here and Orlando ~> non-existent!

We had a great time AND we made great time! Win-Win!

Hope you had a wonderful day. Please let Hello Kitty know that we wish her ALL the best in 2019. And to you too!

13. anotherday2paradise - December 24, 2018

I have no idea, Nancy. Your photos did make me smile though. ๐Ÿ™‚

nrhatch - December 25, 2018

Writing this post makes me want to watch Despicable Me again ~ I think it may have been Love At First Giggle!

14. Debra - December 30, 2018

I love your opening line, because I just love Minions, and can’t say why, other than they make me laugh. Your photos are delightful!

nrhatch - December 30, 2018

Thanks! Yes ~> they make me laugh!
