......these two birds, talking.....

The weekly meme I do on Sunday, Sunday Stealing, is way too long this week, and more or less quite redundant with the question prompts. It's not like I don't have the time...but it seems that those long memes take way too much time, y'know? I'll forgo participating once again. I'll leave the link [above]; you may want to take a gander and participate yourself.

While walking around the marina one day, I overheard a conversation with two pelicans perched on a shrimp boat, resting, after their long journey over the sea. Oh...heck, don't believe me that they can actually talk? Well, humor me....

One Pelican asked the other:

"Did you hear about the big companies pulling out of sponsoring GlƐn BƐck's FØx program?"

The other snorted and readjusted himself on the boat's hull...

"Ya, I did!! Too bad his father didn't pull out when he had the chance."

[pelican image from my camera -- I actually took the photo 'cause of the corroded hull!! You wouldn't catch ME going out on that's rotten. ---look at the wood...just under their tail feathers. LOL]


  1. aaah, i wanna see 'date night'.... have you?

  2. Nun's habit is excellent -wish I'd thought of it. I didn't remember Date Night either, although it's hard to miss the ads for it. We did match, though, on Rainy Days and Mondays.
    Very nice photo. And sentiment.

  3. Is it just me, or do others have difficulty reading over the blue denim? Just a thought...

  4. Very cute! I got a chuckle over your list! Tina Fay was on SNL and did an awful skit that made me laugh awkwardly at the situation! It is so uncanny how she can take a controversial subject and make it laughable. Have a great week!

  5. I believe you when you say you overheard the pelicans talking!! hehe Loved what they said! ROFL!! Yikes, I agree with you, after seeing the shape of that boat, no way would I go out in it either.

    I've heard that Date Night is quite good so will have to rent it when it comes out on dvd. I haven't rented a movie in a few weeks so I'm way behind catching up with the latest movies that are available now on video. Next rainy day, I'm heading to the video store:-)

    Hope your weekend has been a good one so far! xoxo

  6. I'd never even heard of Cattle Egrets so I've learned something new once again by visiting you:-) Such great shots you got of them with the zoom lens. I love using my new camera with the zoom lens as well, amazing how far you can zoom to!!

    Loved the comic funnies! hehe xoxo

  7. Hmmm, that last comment should have gone to your previous post, don't know why it showed up on this one! lol

  8. VERY FUNNY.... Loved it!!!
    Have a wonderful day Anni

  9. I know right? Leo and Johnny are just so yummy! Thanks for dropping by, Happy Sunday!

  10. love you sweet friend.

  11. Got your comment about the blue denim, thanks - but could you not have simply made it a lighter blue? I didn't mean to cause a complete rethink! You could always email me direct (button on the profile page)rather than rely on comment boxes... :)

    You are so right about SS. I like the new theme, but I liked the previous one better myself. :) Loved the pelicans...too funny. And as usual, your UM are just brilliant. Love the Habit::Nun Very well thought out :) Have a great week ahead :)

  13. Yep. That pelican had it right.

  14. Hi Annie!
    We both have the same character in mind in #4 :D
    It's my first time to play this week.

  15. Love that wise pelican!! I'm glad they talk to you...they don't seem to talk to anyone else around the place.

    Hope all is well in your world, Anni.

  16. cute joke, love the pelican pictures!

  17. I REALLY LIKE THIS , Anni.
    This new look really ROCKS!

  18. Anni, hope all is well with you. Wrote a little update on my blog around 2:30 am. Couldn't sleep.

    Wishing you a great day.

  19. tis rotten for sure, I'd been meaning to mention the other layout...but was waiting to see if it got better on the widescreen monitor at home rather than the square one at work. glad you fixed it, I like this much better!

  20. Ani -- FWIW -- I love your original posts (roared with laughter at the pelican joke!). And I'm not so enamoured with the long memes at all (I like the color memes and water and sky -- for the chance to post my pictures) but I usually skip reading posts that have things like that Sunday one you mention -- even when they're by one of my fav bloggers (that would be you ;>)....

    Also I'm much happier with the white background as well.
