Vacation Pictures #1: Funny, silly and just plain weird.

Friends I cannot tell you how good it was to not have the flashy beast in my face while the peeps were AWAY.  Below is the very first picture Mom took of me upon her return ...oh woe with me she is back and so is the flashy beast.  Mom took 289 pictures on vacation. Today she is going to show you some miscellaneous photos she took.

Note from Mom:  The green sheet is on top of a blue bedspread in another feeble attempt to
keep Madi's furs off the bedspread in the guest bedroom.

Now for the miscellaneous pictures.  Mom and Dad went to the very end of the Johnny Mercer pier which is ~600 to 700 feet long......
when Mom got to the end she said she 'hello friends' and  waved across the Atlantic Ocean  to all of our friends across the Pond.  She hopes you all heard her.
While they were in Southport, NC Mom saw this bouy....
the sign stated how far it was from Southport, NC to other places.
Southport, England is 3,271 miles from Southport, NC
They had to take a ferry to Bald Head Island to visit one of the lighthouses (pictures next week).
Mom snapped this picture of a Furry Ferry Friend.  He was a pro at riding the ferry.
Mom spoke to his peep as they were waiting to dock.  His peep said he was 1/2 St. Bernard 1/2 Collie
OMC and OMD Mom loves the Geico commercials.....She found this Geeko vacationing on
Bald Head Island
Mom is always on the lookout for the silly and the unusual check ou the little leprechaun wearing a sea captains cap
Guess who spotted the 'mermaid' on top of the bar in the picture below?  I'll give you a hint IT WAS NOT MOM. MOL!!The peeps had a very delicious lunch in Southport at The Pharmacy Cafe.  It was the first Pharmacy in Southport.  What is now the bar must have been the Soda Fountain of the Pharmacy.
Mom loved looking out onto the Marshes on Bald Head Island...Yay for Dad, he redeemed himself from the above spotting when he saw this beautiful crane sitting on the split rail fence.
The peeps were very, very happy with The Hampton Inn, on Old Eastwood Drive in Wilmington.  The accommodations were excellent.   Not only did they have the standard complimentary Continental Breakfast items they also had hot breakfast items.  Simply yummy and very good coffee. 
Mom tried to convince Dad to take this vanity and sink from their room for their bathroom at home 
But Dad wanted the fish cleaning sink on the Johnny Mercer Pier...they could not reach and
agreement so they came home w/o either. MOL
Mom cackled when she saw this sign. This is exactly what each female says when she passes the store.
Mom and Dad were strolling after dinner when they ran into this seagull who was late for dinner.
Peoples were throwing bread about. All of his 87 million relatives were already eating

We saved the best for last....now we would like to present the home of the World's Largest Frying Pan
It is still in use at least once a year when the town of Rose Hill, NC makes fried chicken dinner to raise money for charity. 

You may enlarge this picture to read all about it
 I wonder how much Mazola oil  it takes to fill this monster up?
Thanks for stopping by today.  Mom and I missed all of you while we were away.  Mom will be catching up with everyone this weekend and organizing her lighthouse picutres hopefully posting them next week.
Hugs Madi and Mom

Thursday (Beach) Theme Song

Mom and I thank Hootin Anni for sponsoring

Mom prepared this post before they left for vacation.
I'm happy to say Mom and Dad are home and she will be catching up with you all today. 
Mom here:  I missed 'My Girl' while I was gone ..I'm not sure she missed me.  I hope you enjoy today's song....
 'My Girl' by the Great Temptations
Mom said to warn you she is using her creative license (in bold) a tad today.  I know what else is new right?

I've got sunshine on a cloudy day
When it is cold outside, I've got the month of May
I guess you'd say
What can make me feel this way?
My Girl
I'm talkin' 'bout Madi, my girl...

I've got so much honey gray chin sugar everyone envies me
I've got a sweeter song than the birds in the trees
What can make me feel this way?
My girl, Talkin' about my Madi.
I don't need no money, fortune or fame
I've got all the riches one Mom can claim
when I see this face it puts everything in
place, I've got my girl, Talkin' about my Madi
I've got sunshine on a cloudy day
when my girl, talkin' about my
Madi reaches out with her sweet
paws to touch my face
I've got sunshine, gray chin sugar and
I don't need any riches when my girl,
talkin' about Madi gives me her upside down
kitty laser eyed stare.
My girl, my Madi

Now to hear the complete song please click on the video below.

MISH MASH

Good Sunday Morning to you all.
Yes I'm finally sleeping on the 'special pad' Mom
made to keep me off her new spread;

however, joke is on Mom.  As you see below, I left my pawprints
on the spread  just to let her know I 'can' and probably 'will'
get my furs all over the spread anyway.
The lovely flower pictures below were taken in early May before
our city became as dry as a bone.  We decided today was the
perfect day to post them.


Not much is thriving in this heat except the precious little family of bunnies that was born in our yard. We have enjoyed watching them frolick about our back yard. They have been very helpful at controlling  the 'weeds' that pop up under our bird feeders.  We cannot believe how tame they are.  This one is actually posing for the picture.

This pretty fountain at a local shopping center is quite refreshing.
The picture was taken about a month ago.  Mom expects it is now turned off to conserve water.
 Thank you for stopping by
Hugs Madi and Mom
