Around the 'Hood

Alarming. What the heck is it?! A deformed cucumber? The world's skinniest melon? A snakefruit? Tallulah Mae is concerned.
Cute. Fun with chalk.
Amusing. More fun with chalk.
Bizarre. Also, corny.
Circusy. As well as termite-y.

That is all: I can't think straight because I had my eyes dilated to Lady Gaga dimensions earlier and I think too much light has entered my brain today.

Tallulah-Palooza Friday

Guess what today is! Come on, Tallulah Mae, I know you're excited...
Oh good grief...

Anyway, it's Vivi Sue's birthday today. Yay!

So today is your birthday
That's what I've been told.
What a wonderful birthday,
You're one more year old.
On a cake there'll be candles
All lighted for you.
And the whole world is singing,
"Happy Birthday to You!"

I love you and wish we were there to give you a cake with lots of glorpy frosting roses on top. Happy Happy Happy Birthday!

Onward to 9,000?

Guess what, Tallulah Mae! It's my 900th post (O.M.G.!)!!!!!!
She is not impressed...

But I am (she writes, immodestly--I just can't believe I've blogged 900 times)! I continue to take great pleasure in the act of blogging, and I feel like I've "met" some super-cool people out there in the blogosphere (thank you to all of you who stop by and special thanks to those who leave comments). And may I just say: Yay!

The Stanley Show

Stanley smiles.
Stanley looks cute.
Stanley wonders what's up with Tallulah Mae.
Stanley is a sweet goofball.
Stanley likes to have his armpits scratched.
Stanley is upside down.
The End.

Tallulah Mae as Boston Terrier...Boston Terrier giving the stinkeye, that is!

The Tot Goes Upscale

Tater tots, y'all! The interior is the usual potato but mixed with goat cheese and truffle oil, served with a tomato marmalade. Fancy!

These just make me smile...

Mr. Von Spinington, the Long-Lost Muppet

From this lovely flower...
..to this grumpy face just three days later. It really looks like a Muppet, no? Although he might need some round black glasses and an ascot to complete the look.

A Capital Trip: Part Seven (Fin)

A farmer's market dog trying to beat the heat...
Cool buildings boarded up, sadly...
A doggy bookmobile...
Cat in the Hat head...
Chairs nicely lined up--who knows why? Watching of some sort of sport, if I had to guess...I call the yellow one!
Not sure I would want to live across the street from the aqua house...bit retina searing, no?
Mushrooms, lovely little works of art by Mother Nature...
Some stairs I found pleasing to the eye...
National Museum of American Art--it used to be the Patent Office--what a nice office building!

Thus endeth the Washington, D.C., travelogue, 2010 edition.

A Capital Trip: Part Six

Signs, gates, stickers seen around Washington, D.C.

Duke Ellington says, "NO PETS (y'all")!"

I hope their dry cleaning is of better quality than their sign maintenance...

Don't ask me what's up with the alien-headed man in his underpants, but I like him!
