Friday Hometown Shoot-Out - Things that make me smile

I thought I might have time to write something cute or even to find a few more pictures.  But alas.  The real world continues to get in the way of blogging.   I guess that's how it is for the moment.  But here are a few pictures -- I may have even posted a few before. 

I hope I will have some time tomorrow to look at everyone else's shots. 

From 1968


San Diego


Lunch Break


Awwww

Hi



Awwww



And this is the only one I took this week
I had to do at least one to keep up the illusion that I'm a photographer


Okay.  Time to drift back to the real world.  I don't know what Bagman and Butler have been doing lately.  The last time I stopped in the office for a moment they were not there but had moved my desk and computer into the corner of the room, covered it with a dropcloth, and installed a ping pong table where it used to be.  They probably think I'll never return.   I didn't appreciate their humor and super-glued the ping pong balls to the table.

  1. I LOVE that last picture. It is a great stimulus for a story or a good joke. You have a great eye for capturing the humor in life around you, obviously. I also think the 1968 photo must have a story...?

  7. You managed to capture some amazing moments here, from the old driver in 1968 to the group at the picnic table (which is begging for a caption!) How did you ever manage to get that polar bear as he jumps into the water? Cool!

  15. I really got a chuckle out of the first one. It created an image of Mr. Magoo in my mind. The "HI" photo made me think of Green Acres. Very cute post. I hope you are chuckling out there in the real world.

  21. The first photo is priceless.

    Who is the "Hi" guy? I could have sworn I saw him in the North Georgia mountains looking to buy some copper.

    Precious kiddo and cat photos.

    Can you explain to me what the "real world" is? Ah yes, the real world is the last photo.

    Have a good weekend, dude. Take that little red car for a spin. And stay away from McDonald's.
