WILD ANIMALS, HOEING, AND THE PSYCHOPATH AMONG US!!!


I know what you are thinking.....with a title like that....I am gonna attract a bunch of pervs. and whacko's......well.......maybe, but pervs are still people....and I am looking for the site traffic.
Sad but true! ;-)
Ok, so I am back from my cottage stay in Kenora, and I thought I would summarize the highlights.
I have a post about 'design in nature' on the way soon!!
But this is NOT that post.
This is a travelogue of my trip.
I hope you enjoy it!
Public art in the Airport in Winnipeg.
The 70's were a DARK DARK TIME in design.

Love this old sign in the 'Peg!
Nothing like a good ceramic boot.
Yes.
I took two with no onions!
In the car on the way to Kenora.....this photo is kinda freaky.....

Even the products in the stores are different up north.
MMMMM......HOLY CRAP......

This is the LITERAL 'open up a can of whoop-ass'
Pain? Really?? Why does this seem like a good idea for you or your colon? 
Ah yes, and Acid rain.....now available at the Safeway!
Erika's 2nd favorite tree. (She better be reading this!)

Nature. Very pretty!

The view from the cottage - and of my favourite pastime (the hammock)

NO. I HAVE NO SHAME. (I know that is what you are thinking)

This sign made me a little nervous......

AND THEN I READ THIS ARTICLE!!!!!!!!!
 THE FOLLOWING IS A PICTORIAL LIST OF THE SCARY.....POSSIBLY PSYCHOPATHIC ANIMALS. VIEW DISCRETION IS ADVISED:
This blue Jay.
POSSIBLE PSYCHOPATH.

Scary Red Squirrel.
PSYCHOPATHIC EYES!

This Buck......looking a bit maniacal.
Garden variety caterpillar.......or CRAZED PSYCHOPATH? 

Just an innocent Doe..........or blood thirsty killer??
The awesome power of the Wood Artist.
SCARY?? Possible psychopathic?
The jury is still out!
THIS TREE???
COME ON!!!!!!!!!!!!! Definitely a Hannibal Lector!!
This wild and dangerous green handed toddler.
JUST KIDDING.....THIS CHILD IS AN ANGEL....and a budding artist
Here are some more pictures of the gifted child:
 
Art lessons......

Day 2 art lessons - finger painting!
NUDE GIRLS!!! (I was gonna lead with that as the SUBJECT....but was talked out of it!)
And speaking of bare..........
Did I mention all the BEARS????
They were super close and scary!
Here I am ho-ing around.

These are mighty beanz. Am I imagining that these are kinda racy????
Their names from right to left are:
Tree Bean, Jungle Jill, Life Save Bean, Patient Bean and Kidnapped Bean.
or as I like to call them:
Angry Psychopath Elm, Slutty McSnake, Big Boob Beth, Head Wound Harry, and Bad Influence Bill.
AM I THE ONLY THAT MISSES THE GOOD OLD DAYS OF BUILDING BLOCKS AND SKIPPING ROPES???
So that is it. The beauty and amusement of my week away!

I leave you with a picture of the world's smallest pine cones.
(Or the worlds largest hand)


Well? Was that entertaining enough??
I don't want it to be too boring for you readers??
Let me know what you think!!

  2. You drove to Kenora? Or did you fly via 'peg? I'm from ol' TBay, 5 hours the other way from Kenora. What was the motivation to go there (read: MIDDLE OF NO WHERE!) Another great blog post...I've missed a few...a little busy. But W&W have the girls today so I'm free to be lazy and do whatever I want (which has included a glass of wine and some shrimp for lunch...can you say wine o'clock?)
