Ah, music!

The little girl was practicing the violin in the living room while her father was trying to read in the den.

The family dog was lying in the den, and as the screeching sounds of the little girl's violin reached his ears, he began to howl loudly.

The father listened to the dog and the violin as long as he could. Then he shouted above the noise, "Can't you play something the dog doesn't know?!"

Mixed emotions

There's something sad about this beautiful photograph...

Occupational hazard...

A woman took her dog to the parlor for a haircut and asked what it would cost. Being told that it would cost her $50, she was outraged.

"I only pay 30 bucks for my own haircut!" she said.

The groomer replied, "That may be true. But then you don't bite, do you?"

Irony forever

I read this amusing anecdote the other day:


Being a teenager and getting a tattoo seem to go hand and hand these days. I wasn’t surprised when one of my daughter’s friends showed me a delicate little Japanese symbol on her hip.

"Please don’t tell my parents," she begged.

"I won’t," I promised. "You're 18 now, so I guess it's your choice. By the way, what does that stand for?"

"Honesty."

Happy Christmas!

I fell in love with this Christmas tree because it reminds me of the George Nelson clock, the symbol of this blog...

The morning after, "What Time" style

Amy sent us a collection of photos of the morning after a "party" at the zoo. I think it's appropriate to post it after one of our parties, considering we're all animal lovers! Thanks, Amy.
