Cuddle Fish

“The team spotted this Stubby Squid off the coast of California at a depth of 900 meters (2,950 feet). The stubby squid (Rossia pacifica) looks like a cross between an octopus and squid, but is more closely related to cuttlefish. This species spends life on the seafloor, activating a sticky mucus jacket and burrowing into the sediment to camouflage, leaving their eyes poking out to spot prey like shrimp and small fish. Rossia pacifica”

 

Nala – love in a teacup (poodle, that is)

“This black teacup poodle named Nala is making everyone smile at a nursing home in Minnesota. She scurries from room to room, even riding the elevator by herself, to see her friends.”

Thanks Linda B.!!!!!!

Don’t stop thinking about tomorrow

I’ve been 70 for 4 days and I still feel like I’m 69 . . . maybe I’ll feel my age in a few more days.  

My long-time “Fibro-friend” came to celebrate my birthday with me.  She wasn’t invited but she came anyway. She said that’s what friends are for.  But I showed her and didn’t have a celebration.  Here’s my birthday pome to me (in blue) with an intro by “Mac”:

Happy Birthday from “Mac” and Me

(with apologies to Fleetwood Mac)

“If you wake up and don’t want to smile
If it takes just a little while
Open your eyes and look at the day
You’ll see things in a different way”

“Don’t stop thinking about tomorrow

Don’t stop. It’ll soon be here”

So don’t fret my dear

A new year to cheer

there’s nothing to fear

You may be old

but you’re still here!

This is NOT a Kiss ‘n Tell moment. It’s not even Kiss ‘n Talk

How can you not admire people who are clear about what their priorities are . . . Ya gotta watch this to the end of the video! (I hope “green guy” has a sense of humor)

Thanks Sharon for the laugh!

Happy is as Happy Does! – Jump’n for JOY

Can’t stop smiling when I see this video of pure excitement!

“The video, posted to YouTube by Kevin Clancy, shows an adorable puppy showing off its cute little dance moves.”

“The dog broke into dance and then literally started jumping for joy when its owner came to take the little pup home from what appears to be a doggie day care.”

 

Happy Fourth & Fifth & Sixth Helpings – NOT!, by Freddie

Dear Humane-Beings,

I am so appalled that 141,084,307+ human-beings have watched and LAUGHED at this.  As a Canine-dog who has lived his whole life dependent on human hand-outs I’m disheartened that some human (not humane) – being would put this REALITY up for the entire world to see . . . quite similar to Keeping up with the Kardashians, don’t you think.

Appallingly yours,

Freddie Parker Westerfield

P.S.  Thanks Cassie for sending this and alerting me.
