    I was going to say that you have to see these pictures to believe them…. but even after seeing some of these pictures, I still can’t quite believe them! Enjoy.

    PS: For anyone who may be wondering, my appointment with the surgeon yesterday went great. No cancer!! Happy Dancing!!!!

  3. I’m doing a lot of driving this week, as we travel to The City for Mom’s 97th Birthday party. Already logged 2hrs on the road today. This is a good warning to stay alert!

    (“The world needs more lerts,” as some wag once quoth.)

    The auto transport truck:
    The driver presumably survived? Lucky, lucky. Looks like a LONG way down!

    Egg delivery guy on the phone:
    “Yeah, lost some eggs.
    Well, several dozen…
    several dozen cartons, that is…”

    Yellow service truck in concrete:
    I especially like the footprints. (Wasn’t there something similar you posted not long ago, a bike on a sidewalk?)

    The on-ramp to nowhere:
    “I was just following my GPS, officer!”

    Tumped-over (as we Okies say) load on top of car:
    Looks like the load must’ve been about empty, ’cause that car isn’t crushed!

    UPS “random delivery” truck:
    My car beeps at me when a door isn’t closed properly. You’d think UPS trucks would be that smart!

    Thanks for the dumb, BoB. As always.

    • LOVED your captions, Mindful – especially the guy following his GPS. Mine has tried to run me into buildings with “Turn right . . . NOW.” Can’t trust their evil ways, those talking boxes.

      But sorry BOB, the over-stuffed “Beverly Hillbillies” van reminded me too much of my last move to be truly funny. (maybe they’re just moving down the block?) 🙂

      Delphine, on the other hand, is a hoot! How DO you get these photos?

      • I’m a compulsive collector of animal pictures — every time I see a good one, I save it to my files. Sometimes friends who are aware of my obsession send me pictures, too. I’ve gotten some great ones that way. 🙂

        • Whatever or however, I love them. What started your fascination with birds?

          • Not sure — I’m tempted to say I was born this way, because I don’t recall any time that I wasn’t an animal lover. 🙂

          • But why the focus on birds? Why not another blog about cats, for example? (just curious, I love the focus, btw)

          • Well, that just sort of happened. I chose my gravatar (the scowling bluebird) years ago purely on a whim, and I adopted the screen name “bluebird of bitterness” based on the photograph. When I started the blog, I named it after the bluebird in my gravatar. I never actually chose a theme or focus because I suspected it would make blogging a chore rather than a diversion; I wanted the freedom to post whatever I felt like posting at any given moment, without worrying about things like relevance and consistency.

            As for the bird family in the sidebar, that evolved gradually over time because I just happened to have some really cute pictures in my bird file, and it stood to reason that the blog owner’s relatives would be avian. 🙂 If it looks as though I actually planned all that, I assure you that I didn’t. In the beginning it was just Bob, then his five siblings sort of appeared out of nowhere, and gradually other friends and relatives joined the gang.

          • What a great story. I named my blog to give me similar options with the ‘andSoMuchMORE’ part of the name, even though I had been well-known for ADD expertise for years (through my first site, addcoach.com, hosting global support groups, speaking at conferences, etc.) — practically since the dawn of the web and certainly since the dawn of coaching.

            I had long since branched way out, so I wanted to open the paradigm in the minds of others – and give myself a chance to post some “fluff” from time to time.

            Your story is cuter ::grin:: Thanks so much for answering my question.

    The last one is positively scary. Swerve the wrong way, and you may have your passenger in your lap.
