Strange........but true!

When Patti and I go out shopping together, we take pictures of things we think are funny. This all started at Hobby Lobby, but Target also has some interesting photo ops. You'll be surprised and probably a little sad when you see what Patti did there! I could call that one "Sad.....but true!" The other interesting place for "strange......but true" photos is my house!

At Target, we walked thru the garden department and were naturally disturbed by the garden gnomes, but the bird bath attached to the garden gnome is what caught our eye.......or maybe it was the unusually large birds right next to the tiny bird bath. Patti tried to re-enact a possible scenario of a bird heading toward the bird bath, and the problem this particular bird might encounter.

Here is a strange way to carry your car keys.

Here is Patti. This is the "Sad.....but True" part. I couldn't get the right amount of light exposure, and Patti was perfectly willing to move about the store with that stupid sparkly, plastic crown on her head and the still-wrapped scepter over her shoulder! I was able to snap three different pictures!! Bless her heart! Isn't she adorable?

Here's Patti again. She found some brand new nail polish (that didn't belong to her!) at the jewelry counter and decided to stop and do her nails.

At Hobby Lobby we found some Frisket Remover. We have no idea what this is, but good news! If you ever need your frisket removed, there's a kit especially for that! We didn't spend any time trying to find out what a frisket is; we just thought it was hysterically funny.

Mirror image? Nah, it's just Jennifer's twins, Hyrum and Joseph, at the deck gate. Aren't they the cutest little guys?

Here's Troy and the big doggies on the trampoline. They jump up there when he's jumping, and in the morning, they get up on the trampoline alone and wrestle with each other. It's very entertaining!

Sometimes when we visit Mom, she lets us do ridiculous things to her.

Here's Mom doing her "jazz hands" routine.

So that's our "Strange......but True" issue. While there is absolutely no point to this post, I know you're all probably saying to yourselves "How old ARE you two anyway??"

Maybe we'll go out trolling again for more pictures. I'm a little nervous to go back to Target. I'm sure there is plenty of security tape footage with Patti and I slinking around the store, taking pictures!

But there's always Walmart.....imagine what we could find THERE!!


  1. YAH! A blog update!! You two are so funny. I love your stories and outtings. And I love your cute mom.

  2. Okay, Bob, here's my comment....again! I can't believe you guys dress up grandma to look even older than she already is. I have a cute video of her that I'm going to post to youtube soon and blog it. I hope you guys have more adventures in Target and Hobby Lobby soon, so you'll have someting to blog about. Maybe you could make fun of all the people at Timeout for Women! Oh, and John loved the pic of the twins. So cute! Did you ever find out what frisket is? You should put up a poll on your blog to ask if anyone else knows what it is...

  3. How did I miss a new post?!? I think I'll be able to fall asleep with a big smile on my face now - ThaNk YoU!!!

  4. OK, so I am w-a-i-t-i-n-g patiently for you post on the James Taylor concert....since I couldn't be there I need to console myself with your review, which I know will be hilarious.

  5. I don't know why I'm reading your blog again, but this made me laugh out loud. You are SOOOO funny, Bob!
