READY TO GO

Okay!! I bought a new digital camera today, and had it completely figured out in about ten minutes. Hmm...... I guess that's what happens when you don't read the instructions, which would take me days to read, and still, I wouldn't know any more than I do right now.

So now I guess I actually have to take some pictures with it, huh? Well, rest assured you forty or so. I will, and I might even include a few here. I threatened my daughter tonight that I was going to post her picture on my blog. She just gave me the look. You know....THE LOOK!

She actually told me she was going to miss me this weekend, right before she said, "if it will make you get out of my room, I'll say anything." Yes, she was laughing as she said that. Things are going well for us right now. There seems to be an open line of communication between us, and I haven't done anything apparently to screw that up. Thank you greatly, God.

Anyway, this will be my last post for a few days, as I am taking a holiday to hunt, but more importantly, to find silence. (Anticipatory sigh).....

I will not be posting pictures of a deer on this blog, if I happen to have a successful hunt. Sorry, but there are way too many people who are offended by that sort of thing, and quite frankly, who cares how many points my deer's antlers have?

I will post some pictures of something at sometime somewhere. Now, if you paid attention, you know exactly when, where, and what will be posted. I am THAT precise.

As you no doubt have noticed, I am jumping around in this post tonight. Just the way my mind has been working lately. I need to get that fixed, fast!

I am reminded, as I prepare to leave, of Elmer Fudd. I just loved the way he used to hunt "smaw fowwy woodwand kweetchos" in that raspy voice of his. He is my favorite cartoon character. So I have a question for you. Who is your favorite cartoon character, and why?

Enjoy your camera and most importantly enjoy your silence!

Elmer Fudd was great, but sadly, he's not my favorite. hehe I think the Animaniacs still rank number one for me. I even have little figurines of them. Yes, I'm a dork. :)

Have a really nice quiet time.

My favorite is the roadrunner - Beep, beep!

It's hard to pick a favorite cartoon, but Bugs is right up there. Who can deny the genius of "What's Opera Doc?"

Wile E. Coyote & the Road Runner (the older ones, not the newer ones) are a close second. No else in history ever made repeated, ill-advised attempts to defy the laws of physics so much fun.

But then there's always Marvin the Martian too...classic. "Where's the kaboom? There's supposed to be a large, earth shattering kaboom!" There were too few of him to make him a serious contender though.

Ah. Good times, good times.

Have a great trip & Happy Thanksgiving!

Liesa, sadly, I never saw animaniacs.

Amy, you are always welcome here. Glad you stopped by.

Phil, yeah, roadrunner was cool

Feeble Knees, I loved the Martian too!! But yeah, he wasn't on often enough. Even though Elmer is my favorite character, my favorite cartoon episode of all time has to be Daffy Duck as Robin Hood. "Yoikes!!! and away!!!!"
