in Monday's Morsels!!


There are no alligators in this pond [that I've seen] but there are a fact, gobs of long necked geese. Oh and if you know the song, there are no humpty backed camels and chimpanzees either. Nor the loveliest of all...there is no unicorn!! Geese, cormorants [link to photo I posted Wednesday] and ducks...oh my!!


[and Irish song for Green Month...March!]

Speaking of green:

The Americans and Russians at the height of the arms race
realized that if they continued in the usual manner they
were going to blow up the whole world.

One day they sat down and decided to settle the whole
dispute with one dog fight. They would have five years to
breed the best fighting dog in the world and which ever
side's dog won would be entitled to dominate the world. The
losing side would have to lay down its arms.

The Russians found the biggest meanest Doberman and
Rottweiler females in the world and bred them with the
biggest meanest Siberian wolves. They selected only the
biggest and strongest puppy from each litter, killed his
siblings, and gave him all the milk.

They used steroids and trainers and after five years came up
with the biggest meanest dog the world had ever seen.

Its cage needed steel bars that were five inches thick and
nobody could get near it.

When the day came for the dog fight, the Americans showed up
with a strange animal. It was a nine foot long Dachshund.

Everyone felt sorry for the Americans because they knew
there was no way that this dog could possibly last ten
seconds with the Russian dog.

When the cages were opened up, the Dachshund came out of
it's cage and slowly waddled over towards the Russian dog.

The Russian dog snarled and leaped out of it's cage and
charged the American dachshund. But, when it got close
enough to bite the Dachshund's neck, the Dachshund opened
it's mouth and consumed the Russian dog in one bite.

There was nothing left at all of the Russian dog.

The Russians came up to the Americans shaking their heads in
disbelief. "We don't understand how this could have
happened. We had our best people working for five years
with the meanest Doberman and Rottweiler females in the
world and the biggest meanest Siberian wolves."

"That's nothing", an American replied. "We had our best
plastic surgeons working for five years to make an alligator
look like a Dachshund".

Think about this one:

A wise man never plays leap frog with a unicorn

  6. Your blog is always such a delight to visit! It's always a great pick-me-up for me. Just wanted you to know that.
    Those are some great photographs, and I'm glad there are no alligators, because that is one of the very few critters I fear.

  7. Your blogs always make me laugh, keep them coming, love all the different formats

  8. Anni, I have that song on a 45 record! I did a presentation in 5th grade music class to that song! We are birds of a feather!!! I use to sing that song all the time when I was a kid :-)
    Thanks for the memory.

    Great photos as always! Have a great weekend. I'll be in WDW for St. Patty's but I'll be wear'n green!


  9. Those are great looking geese! Enjoy your pond!

  10. Those are the most amazing-looking ducks, Anni. Wow.
    Every now and then, someone will mention a childhood game called "Duck, duck, goose" then laugh and laugh. I never heard of it during my childhood.
    Great camera critters you've got down there, all of 'em, but especially that first goose, and the duck who looks like he's wearing a mouse on his head. ;~)
