Hiatus Time again

All's quiet on the Eastern Front - East Coast that is.
Yep, I'm heading offline for a few days. I thought I'd give you a heads up.
Just a few things to share while I'm serving crickets noise here.

I was talking to DH. He said a phrase. The Polish Count.
I realized that "Count" can be interpreted THREE ways! So the phrase is saying three different things.
No wonder our language is such a bear to learn.
BTW - Can YOU name the three difference? Hmmmmm?

Making a Baby
The Smiths were unable to conceive children and decided to use a surrogate father to start their family.
On the day the proxy father was to arrive, Mr. Smith kissed his wife goodbye and said,
"Well, I'm off now The man should be here soon.
Half an hour later, just by chance, a door-to-door baby photographer
happened to ring the doorbell, hoping to make a sale.
Good morning, Ma'am", he said, "I've come to...''
Oh, no need to explain,"
Mrs. Smith cut in, embarrassed, "I've been expecting you."

"Have you really?" said the photographer.
"Well, that's good. Did you know babies are my specialty?"
"Well that's what my husband and I had hoped.
Please come in and have a seat"
After a moment she asked, blushing, "Well, where do we start?"
"Leave everything to me. I usually try two in the bathtub, one on
the couch, and perhaps a couple on the bed. And sometimes the living
room floor is fun. You can really spread out there."
"Bathtub, living room floor? No wonder it didn't work out for Harry and me!"
"Well, Ma'am, none of us can guarantee a good one every time. But if we try several different positions and I shoot from six or seven
angles, I'm sure you'll be pleased with the results."

"My, that's a lot!" gasped Mrs. Smith.
"Ma'am, in my line of work a man has to take his time. I'd love to
be in and out in five minutes, but I'm sure you'd be disappointed
with that."

"Don't I know it," said Mrs. Smith quietly.

The photographer opened his briefcase and pulled out a portfolio
of his baby pictures.
"This was done on the top of a bus," he said.

"Oh my God!" Mrs. Smith exclaimed, grasping at her throat.

"And these twins turned out exceptionally well - when you consider
their mother was so difficult to work with."
"She was difficult?" asked Mrs. Smith.
"Yes, I'm afraid so I finally had to take her to the park to get
the job done right.

People were crowding around four and five deep toget a good look"
"Four and five deep?" said Mrs. Smith, her eyes wide with amazement.
"Yes", the photographer replied.

"And for more than three hours,too.
The mother was constantly squealing and yelling - I could hardly
concentrate, and when darkness approached I had to rush my shots.
Finally, when the squirrels began nibbling on my equipment, I just
had to pack it all in."
Mrs. Smith leaned forward.
"Do you mean they actually chewed on your,"
"It's true, Ma'am, yes..
Well, if you're ready, I'll set-up my tripod and we can get to work right away."
"Oh yes, Ma'am.
I need to use a tripod to rest my Canon on. It's
much too big to be held in the hand very long."

Mrs. Smith fainted.


Well, that's all folks , for a bit anyway. I promise to take some pictures and share them with you when I get back. I just hope we don't get rained out! TTFN!

Edit: Pic's wouldn't post this last night.

Posting this so when you visit, you'll

be inspired to smile.

I can only HOPE to catch a pic as fun as this.


Photographer was good! I had to add this one too... Seems the perfect pose for a perfect "G'day mate. Enjoy the walk-a-bout"
**waggles brows**
What do You think He's saying?
Thanks for stopping by. Maybe one of these is worth viewing more than once? *gg*
Behave while I'm gone.
Or not.
