Who, Me?

Purrl always looks innocent.

 

The best one in a while:

 

A pirate walked into a bar, and the bartender said, “Hey, I haven’t seen you in a while. What happened? You look terrible.”

“What do you mean?” said the pirate, “I feel fine.”

 

“What about the wooden leg? You didn’t have that before.”

 

“Well,” said the pirate, “We were in a battle, and I got hit with a cannon ball, but I’m fine now.”

 

The bartender replied, “Well, OK, but what about that hook? What happened to your hand?”

 

The pirate explained, “We were in another battle. I boarded a ship and got into a sword fight. My hand was cut off. I got fitted with a hook but I’m fine, really..”

 

“What about that eye patch?” “Oh,” said the pirate, “One day we were at sea, and a flock of birds flew over. I looked up, and one of them shit in my eye.”

 

“You’re kidding,” said the bartender. “You couldn’t lose an eye just from bird shit.”

 

“Well, It was my first day with the hook.”

 

Update on mallards:

 

I saw a fox twice yesterday, the first time running directly across the yard and headed straight for the nest.  I surprised it opening my door and it ran away. A friend dropped by and she saw one from my kitchen window heading the same way.  Again, opening the door made it run away. An hour later I left to attend a wake and when I returned within an hour, the nest was empty. I hope it did not get Mrs Mallard too.

Great pic.

Funny story.

Sad about the mallard nest, but not surprising.
Mary MacADNski: All true but for the blurry shot.
She's got that mastered! What a great shot, Mary!

Great joke, Mary - laughed out loud, and soon nearly cried at the mallard story... :-(
Mary MacADNski: Thank you. Like you my daughter was upset about the mallards. She grew up tending duck nests and was so pleased to see this last weekend and show her kids.
What a great photo, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: Thank you for your very kind remark.

Mary MacADNski: She wants to play. If she charms me right she knows I will respond.

Magnifique, on dirait une peluche avec ses poils longs.
Mary MacADNski: She is a beauty.
Terrible old joke grin

Very sad about the mallards

Lovely cat snap
Mary MacADNski: I had not heard this joke before.
A great joke, and a fine looking cat...
Mary MacADNski: She is losing her winter hair so her scarf is a bit smaller.

I love the pose! I also like the "We are not amused" look on her face. Its shame about the next, though; loves lost to benefit those of others, I guess.
Mary MacADNski: I don't understand how a fox can eat a whole dozen eggs and perhaps the duck in such a short time. There has not been a duck near the pond today -none.

...lives lost...
Actually, I think Purrl looks rather threatening, "Gimme supper or there's trouble! I know where you live!"

Sad news about the duck - you need a duck island on your pond!
Mary MacADNski: Not at all, Tom. She is on her best behavior, trying to get me to stick around and play with her. That is a, 'please stay'.
