Do you ever have that millisecond pause when you know something is out of whack, but don't really know what it is?
Or does it take a real mental smack up the side of the head to get you to notice something that is out of the ordinary?
I am the type of personality that would probably be classified as
"weird,.... noticing weird things"!
That is a REAL classification, by the way!
And so, besides BEING weird, I also enjoy taking pictures of the uncommon
(uncommon sounds nicer than weird) things.
I will leave to my children some day
a very, very large box of pictures classified as: just weird.
Or maybe the label on the box will say: "things that made me smile".
The kids will just shake their heads and then hopefully smile, knowing that that was their momma.
Momma: The weird thing picture taker and collector of weird things, who liked to smile.
I always have wondered if this was hereditary.
Someplace, somewhere in my lineage
was there another person that collected all things weird?
If there was, they didn't admit to it, as I have found nothing in diaries, or stories, not even pictures.
Is this something that I can pass to my children and their children?
I have decided that I hope it CAN be passed along.
All the weirdness shouldn't be ignored.
It should be used for good. It should make you smile!
Like this picture.
Columbus, Ohio, Summer 2009.
King Kong now has his own football team?
The King Kong that is from Ohio, as that uniform is in Ohio State colors?
This was taken at Polaris Parkway and US 71, north of Columbus. It was only there about a week, then disappeared. How could something that size just disappear? Do you think he's on a "traveling" team, and is now appearing across the whole state?
Makes you wonder, doesn't it?
Next up: hot dogs:
This Oscar Meyer dog was recently at the Country Living Fair in Columbus, Ohio.
I don't know why it would be there in the historical village, but it was. Parked in the grass beside a tent that was handing out info about the fair. And as you can see, there were 4 chairs set up right beside it. Do you think there was to be a weiner performance and not very many people were expected to attend?
I wonder if this is the same weinermobile that has been around awhile.
I remember when I was a little gal that somewhere, we, as a family, came across this vehicle at an event. The nice weinermobile people gave me a little weiner whistle on a string necklace. (This was before kids knew they could swallow little metal things and choke or, twist the string necklace tight enough to cause damage.) I know, a weiner whistle sounds weird, and it was/is. But I remembered the Oscar Meyer brand from that day forward! I could even whistle the Oscar Meyer song... b-o-l-o-g-n-a.
(but notice that I don't remember where I saw this!)
And my list of weirdness that makes me smile just goes on and on.
Perhaps I'll share weirdness again one day.
Hope your day is a weird, smiling one!
Thanks for stopping by!
