If there were a cartoon bubble for my rambling thoughts--it would usually appear like the above! So the simplest reasoning --is why ask why I do or think anything. It is much easier that way. This is acttually a spray painted sign on the ground in front of Heggins, asking if you have reusable grocery bags, because the ban on plastic bags starts very soon. And the answer, all knowing sign, is yes! We do have reusable bags, many of them in fact. We just keep forgeting to put them in the car. Most of our plastic bags now go to poo removal for our dog.
Speaking of helpful signs---The great folks at Home Depot, are always there to help--Always!
Speaking of cartoons, Calvin & Hobbes is proably my all time favorite comic strip. And I was more than sad, when they stopped being realesed. Garfield is easily my next favorite. And I actually have a picture of him! He hates mondays, loves lasgnaga, and has a birthday about a week before my birthday. In fact I beleive him and I are the same age. And as the above picture shows, he also loves a great cup of Joe!!
I hope this sign implys that it is time to stop for coffee. And some might argue that this statement is always true. It could be a ploy from tea manufactures --saying to stop coffee! Booo! if it is.
Possiably one of the most useless products I have ever seen. But you have to give kudos to there marketing skills! The top prize goes to decaff 5 hour energy. This is another real product. I just do not understand that concept at all, no matter how many times I try to think outside the box. This usually in all actuality, just makes me crave Taco Bell.
Back To The Future Delorian time machine---now thats a mouthfull---- was set for yesterday, it seems!
We found this eire eye on a rock down by the bay yesterday. Someone added a pupil to complete the image. I have tons of exploring blogs in the works. Full of my rambling and pictures. Lucky you!
Sure sign of summer, although you can see clouds in the sky. All of the local fountains are being turned on. This is in Ferndale right by the river. We roamed around in and around Pioner Park a few daze back. Again the full blog is in the works.
This is Mr Max down by the bay. Yesterday in fact. Notice how he is on a leash? I always keep him on a leash. Because it's the law, because I am not sure how he will handle other dogs, and because the few times I have let him run free, he kept running. I have mentioned this before, and will again--in fact there are several "mini rants" about poor pet owners already. But yesterday this topic hit home twice while around Bellingham. Once while at Laurel Park near WWU campus. None of the dogs that visited were on a leash. I did not have Max with me at this point, and was just wearing out the kiddos while my wife was at a docter appointment. I do not care how well you know your dog---he will not act good 100% of the time. And I do not appreciate your dog as much as you do. I do not want it licking me, biting me, or sniffing my crotch. I am at the park for the kids.
The secound --more annoying example is while we were down by the bay. This time we had Max with us. And no one else magically had there dogs on leashes. All of the dogs played very nicely with Max. In fact he might have made a new girl friend. But I still had to pull at him to continue down the trail. Followed by others dogs when we first took off. The last dog we encountered was not so friendly. And Max was instantly ready to add some bite marks to this unleashed dog. The owner had just informed me at how well her dog reacted around other mutts. "As I can see" was my first response. As I was pulling my leashed dog down the trail, to our car, I pointed at the near by park signs with my other hand. And tried to inform the lady that most of them said to keep dogs on a leash. As she argued this point, I informed her how much I love pulling my dog off all of the other dogs thats owners just let them roam free. I am sure this section will land in my Bellingham blog---and I hope with more readership this owner and many others will read my rants and think a little bit next time they voyage out. Hahahahaha---OK I just made myself laugh a little on that one! Later today I hope to post a new exploring blog! And tommorow brings back my "mini rants" this one will deal with bad pet parents --who in my eyes basically abuse there pets. I hope you read all about it, and have insight----for or against my thoughts. You can post your thoughts any time on this blog. Or if you have Facebook please check out my new page!

I am more annoyed that the Cookie Monster no longer eats cookies. He eats healthy crap. C does not stand for carrots you Mitches! I watched him all the time, and did not grow fat from eating to many cookies. I grew fat from drinking double the amount of beer, because it was light beer!
