What’s In Your Skillet? January 15, 2019

Growing up, our Great Danes ate just like Marmaduke . . . chowing down on their food while spitting out the pills.

Other dogs, like Daisy, are opportunistic . . . and prefer people food.  I wonder if she’s ever had a Dagwood?

Pets . . . gotta love ’em!

Aah . . . that’s better!

While wandering around Toon Lagoon, we bumped into Hildegarde who had bumped into a light pole after what must have been a rather bumpy ride.

Hocus Pocus . . . she musta lost her focus!

And so did this pilot!

He going to need a good stiff drink after that landing!

Looks like he’s come to the right place!

Aah . . . that’s better!

Bag The Broccoli! January 5, 2019

Last month, I had to visit the Urgent Care clinic
While there, I received a band-aid
Opened and administered by the nurse
After she gave me a shot

*OW*

Full of steroids
To help eradicate the itchy, scratchy rash
That developed as a result of an allergic reaction
To OTC pain medications
Taken for lower back pain
That I incurred two days earlier

*POP*

*OW*

While moving a bag of broccoli (!)
In the freezer

Moral of the Story:  Vegetables are healthy to eat, but moving them around is fraught with peril!

And (per BFF) we should all bag the broccoli!

Aah . . . that’s better!

Photo Ops December 31, 2018

The parks are filled with Photo Ops ~ from mythical creatures standing guard.

To the wrecks and ruins of ancient civilizations.

To mighty tridents backlit by blue cloudless skies.

To giants of men with the weight of the world on their shoulders.

To super-heroes and villains.

To Marvel characters who are marvelous to marvel at.

And then there’s Marmaduke!  Always ready to take an unsuspecting toddler for a ride.

Hope your New Year gets off to a running start!

Aah . . . that’s better!

Why did Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer cross the road?

Nobody nose!

Aah . . . that’s punny!

A Christmas Parade December 25, 2018

We finally got to see the Macy’s Christmas Parade . . . in Florida!

On a cool, clear night, we lined up along the parade route and enjoyed a ring-side seat.

The floats trended away from simple and elegant.

And focused more on whimsical creations of our Fairy Tale heroes . . . like Shrek and Fiona!

We also saw giant wooden nutcrackers . . . as well as the helium-filled variety.

Our friends from the New York Zoo visited via Madagascar.  We saw Alex the lion, Melman, the hypochondriac giraffe who is afraid of germs, and Gloria, a strong, confident, but sweet hippopotamus. …

And the penguins of Madagascar . . . after a crash landing.

King Julien XIII, a ring-tailed lemur and the king of the lemurs, stopped “moving it” long enough for me to grab a quick shot.

And, of course, Marty attended.

As you know, zebras are a favorite of mine.

So I snapped Marty from every angle.

Sure that one would be crackalackin!

And then the big guy himself arrived in a tiny sleigh drawn by eight tiny reindeer . . . which, to be truthful, weren’t terribly tiny.

There he is . . . on top of the world!

Wishing you all a Crackalackin Christmas!

Aah . . . that’s better!

 

On Mulberry Street December 17, 2018

Seuss Landing is a whimsical place.

Every animal we saw had a funny face.

As they traveled around while staying in place.

Even the fish got into the act.

Smiling and grinning with grace and with tact.

But my favorite was this guy . . . whose hair hadn’t been hacked!

Aah . . . that’s better!

Just a quick shout out to L. Marie . . .

I’ve made it!  I’ve made it!  It’s all about ME!

Merry Grinchmas! December 13, 2018

Seuss Landing is a bright and colorful spot.

Festooned with wreaths, garlands, bows, and what not.

Everyone, including Horton, helps to add to the “Merry.”

While the Lorax reminds us all to be wary.

Thing 1 and Thing 2 have energy to spare.

They’re running on Moose Juice with nary a care.

They’re on a perpetual sugar high.

Until it’s time to snooze . . . by and by.

The Cat in the Hat keeps everything humming.

While the Grinch tries to keep Christmas from coming.

Now the Whos are a snooze, but they’ve had a ball.

Making sure this will be the best Christmas of all!

Aah . . . that’s better!

Don’t drink and drone . . .

Or you might think you’re hallucinating!

Each year in June, Superman fans gather in Metropolis for the annual Superman Celebration which features . . . a costume contest.

Aah . . . that’s better!
