Friday Shootout - Trip to the Zoo

Well, of course, I don't get around Blogspot much anymore.  But I do check in every once in a while.  And the only zoo picture I have -- well, I probably have more somewhere, but...but...

But I could make up good excuses, but there aren't any.  I'm not putting as much energy into blogging as I used to. 

BAGMAN:  "You aren't putting any energy into blogging, you lazy sot!"

BUTLER:  "Leave the poor man alone, Baggie.  He's just spending more time in that other place."

BAGMAN:  "You mean that place called 're-al-i-ty'?   Pshah!  Boring."

Anyhow, I've posted this before and it goes back to San Diego, California in 1970.   I think I was stoned at the time.  

BAGMAN:  "You think?   It was 1970 in California!  You were stoned all the time!"




Anyhow, I really identified with this guy at the time. 

Actually, this morning, I still do.

  1. Yep, that gorilla does look stoned.
    It's nice to have you around, though I can see being blogged-out. Soon I'm going to call a halt to all my usual memes, and see what's left. Many weeks it's Poem-Zebra-Shootout, Poem-Zebra-Shootout, and it is a rut. I always admired how your posts were so You, whether theme-related or not.
    Do whatcha like!

  5. We've all felt like that at one time or another.
    Fortunately, when we do we don't have to do it publicly with a curious, finger-pointing audience.

    Hope you are well and enjoying re-al-i-ty. What's it like, anyway?

  6. Dear Mark, I have missed your hijinxed words so much. I could find no zoo pictures today so just took the day off to catch up on my favorite blogs. Doing certain memes does cut down on the chance to do something different. I am gonna make some changes too. Hope all is well.

  7. I just have verbal diarrhea, I guess. Anyway, I don't worry if I have nothing to post. Eventually I'll think of something even if weeks down the road and even if uninteresting. It will be something that I have to get off my chest. It is not a contest you know. And if you have nothing to post it doesn't mean you are brain dead! At least I don't think it does. Since I am retired my reality is a little better paced.

  9. A meme (pronounced /ˈmiːm/, rhyming with "cream"[1]) is a postulated unit of cultural ideas, symbols or practices, which can be transmitted from one mind to another through writing, speech, gestures, rituals or other imitable phenomena. (The etymology of the term relates to the Greek word μιμητισμός ([mɪmetɪsmos]) for "something imitated".)[2] Supporters of the concept regard memes as cultural analogues to genes, in that they self-replicate and respond to selective pressures.[3]
    (maybe it isn't writing our blogs that get boring but the imitation inherent in memes that is.)

    I like your zoo photo....
