Show and Tail

Today I am joining Angela over at West Virginia's Treasures. On Tuesdays she runs an animal party! You can talk about your pet, a visit at the zoo, or some interesting fact (or joke) about animals. Please join us!


My advice for you today: Don't sit around the house... Get out and enjoy nature!!!












Oh yeah - did I forget to tell you to be careful while doing it!
(Thanks Katie)

If you are losing a tug-of-war with a tiger, give him the rope before he gets to your arm. You can always buy a new rope.

Animals are funny creatures. Honestly I could just sit and watch them all day long.

I love the quote at the top of your blog. It is very thought provoking.

And Max Gunther, well let's just say, "Words of Wisdom."
Have a beautiful day.

I thought the best one was the guy up the tree with the dog hanging on. Probably wasn't funny to him though. :)

these were all great, Sandie! I can't imagine running and having that bird literally in my face (even running these days I can't imagine :)

glad to have you back from your vacation :)

OMG, where on earth do you find these?! Your research has got to be such FUN!

Sharon said...

What does it say about me that I just love these photos of nature "getting back" at man?? (Sense of justice, warped sense of humor?)

My favorite was the last one - the monkey with the stick getting ready to hit the man.

"OK, you distract him with stuff on the ground, I'll get a stick and sneak up on him..."

Needed this :) today...
