Snicker Saturday...Frankies Peep Idea

Hey everyone!
Saturday again, and time for another laugh in Blogville.  Frankie has this cool idea to turn the flashy beast around on our peeps!  A little sauce for the goose, for all the times they've posted our pix when we would really rather have had some privacy or dignity instead.  BOL  So, I dug around in my pix pack and found some shots of my peeps that they'd rather not share with the world.  I'll share the chuckle with all of you:
My mom after her eye surgery.  Wow.
At least the goggles take attention away from her hair!  BOL

This is a subtle one...the only reason this one is funny is because my dad spent about 3 hours working on this little plastic clip.  He's trying really super hard to fix it.  Why is that funny?  Because it costs about 50 cents and you can by them anywhere!!   Note the tools and the look of concentration!  
For 3 hours he fussed and said an amazing string of HBO words!!

Here's a crowd pleaser!  Dad and Papaw Pantslegs...digging in dirt!  Now we all know what happens when we do this...Yup, we get yelled at, then thrown into a bath.  Not them.  This was different.  Yeah, right!

Here's Dad goofing off at the Erie Zoo.
He knocked 5 small children out of the way so he could get to do this! 
BWAR HAR HAR     Just kidding, of course...

The reason I'm awake in this pix is because Dad SNORES!

So, there you are.  Snicker Saturday courtesy of Frankie's pawesome idea to get some revenge against our peeps and their annoying flashy beast.  Luckily for me, my peeps are such easy targets!!

Happy Weekend Everyone!

Thinking Thursday...1st Edition

Hey Everyone!
Wow, I was thinking that we should shove our critter craniums into high gear.   I'm going to be presenting a series of posts that will stretch our brains.  I'll be giving everyone a puzzle on Thinking Thursday.  Then everyone can comment their answers and on Monday, I'll post the results for all of us to ponder.  There isn't necessarily one right answer on these and I'll try to keep them so anyone can join in.   What do you think???  Well, that's the idea!    Here we go:

Can you find them all???    I know...Mom made this a little small...get your glasses out!

Tune in Monday to see how many "Dog"s and "Cat"s I stuck in here.

Traveling Tuesday...Me Too

Hey Everyone!
Wow, I got to go on a day camp this past Sunday!  (You know, a day camp has all the fun of a regular camp without the tent.)  THIS TIME WHEN MY PEEPS TRAVELED, I GOT TO GO TOO!!
It was so much fun!  Here are all the pix:

Dad and I bond in the cool shade!
We're spending the day at Kinzua Reservoir.

Going swimmie...for a stick!!!  Woohoo!

Here's the mud to prove how much fun I had!

Pawesome view!

Then we stopped at the dam to take a look at the view!

Wow, so that's what made that pawesome lake!

And here's the overflow from the dam!
Dad and I are enjoying the scenery!

Boy, was it a blast!  I think we'll be going back to do a real, overnight camp there for a few days! Pawesome!  I absolutely can't wait!!

If you get the chance to go camp (day or night) with your peeps, definitely GO GO GO.  
It's the best time ever!

Traveling Thursday...again

Hey Everyone!
Wow, my peeps ran away with Frankie and Mamaw and Papaw Pantslegs last weekend!  They all had a blast together.  Here are some pix of this cool place they went where there were pawesome wood carvings...Warther Museum in Amish Country in Ohio...
Mr Warther was amazing at carving wooden pliers.

He made this pawesome scene from a steel mill...and the parts move!! All hand carved!

Cool huh?!?
His whole family liked to hunt for arrow heads, then he arranged them to display.

Check out the detail in the engine!

He met several US presidents and here he is on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson.

Anyway, if you find this interesting, you can check out the museum if you're ever in Ohio!

Traveling Tuesday

Hey Everyone!
Wow, it's Tuesday already!  Well, I promised to show you pix from the trip that my peeps went on while we were all enjoying the big Luau!   Here it is!   They went to Niagara Falls, NY to see the falls from the US side and then they went to historical Fort Niagara.  Again, they somehow managed to have fun without taking me along (sniffle), but I had important work to do here.  I guarded our territory while they went on vacation.  The pix they brought back seemed to show these are two neat places to go.  The falls sure were pretty.   Mom and Dad said that Fort Niagara is located where the Niagara River flows into Lake Ontario.  The fort was really important during the War of 1812 and it has been really well preserved and refurbished in the original style.  Here come the pix!

Niagara River just before it reaches the Falls.

The ever-present rainbow over the falls.

And here's where the second set of Saturday Steps came from:  Fort Niagara!

The main fort...built to sort of look like a big it would not upset the local native indians.

The drawbridge mechanism...stone, wood and rope.
One of the towers
Guard walls

Inside a tower.

So, there you have it.  A quick look at the greater Niagara NY area.  I hope you enjoyed it.  To me, the best part was when my peeps got back home!  BOL

I hope you liked the music.  Tune in (get it?!) tomorrow to see the location.

Saturday...not Georges...Steps

Hey everyone!
While my peeps were busy travelling around recently, I reminded them to please be sure to look for interesting steps to show my furiend George The Lad.  Well, they actually did it!!

 Here are a few pix from their Gettysburg trip (see full post from 7-7-11) showing pawesome steps into several of the monuments there:

Steps to the Pennsylvania Monument

Steps inside the Little Round Top Monument

Little Round Top Monument.

Then these pix are of steps they saw last weekend...I'll post all about this place on Traveling Tuesday!

Stay tuned to Traveling Tuesday to find out where the steps can be found.

Hey George, I always love your Saturday Step posts so much.  You go to the most pawesome places!  I hope I did you proud with these pix of steps from my peeps' two trips.

Traveling Thursday

Hey Everyone!
Wow, I almost forgot to show all of you where my peeps ran off to a few weekends ago!  While I was busy in the slammer doing undercover COP research, Mom & Dad ran away to Gettysburg.  They must have managed to have at least a little fun without me...though I'm not sure how.  I gotta admit, that from the pix they brought back, this must be a very historical and interesting place.  There was a cool festival going on so they heard really great brass and blues bands, and saw some great artworks.  I posted the band highlights earlier.  Here are some of the pix from their trip:

A row of cannons along one of the many battlefields.

Overlooking the hillside from inside the Little Round Top Monument.

General George Mead's statue. 
He was born about 1 hour from my home territory!

In the Cemetery, where President Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address.

Now we're talkin'!  This artist did all portraits of...DOGS!  Cool.

Some peep obviously had the great good sense to bring his dog.

So, I hope you enjoyed this little peek at historic Gettysburg.
Next week on Traveling Tuesday, I'll show you where they went while we were all at the big Luau!

   Hey don't forget our furiends Dexter and Louis at Schnauzer Days are having a Summer Photo Contest!  See their 7-1-11 post for details!  This will be so much fun.
