Wow. I feel like I got to go to the zoo with you. Thanks for the fun. And I apologize that apparently I left one of my children behind at your kitchen table... It won't happen again.

My pics are posted -- http://bigbouquet.wordpress.com

PS -- I have that camera posted on Etsy -- but what gives? Thought etsy was for "handmade" -- I guarantee that person didn't make that. And I see no sign of embellishment, etc. Color me confused (now THAT would be handmade!)

If that's what 85 looks like in your family, I'm guessing you have to be around 60! That man is a wonder.

Great shots as always.. I have a fondness for giraffes. :)

So tasty.

Especially with soy sauce.

Tink's pictures = beautiful!

Hey all, what say we chip in and get Tink'n'Hoop a giant spork as a wedding present? ;)

Happy Birthay Gramps! He's looking great!

I love each and every photo you took and posted!

How do you get to be so fabulous?

wish I was at that zoo with yall! looks like a bunch o'fun. I posted my WWC this week. I'll be back in the game full force hopefully next week! :)

 
At 14 October, 2008, Blogger Reb said...

Wow, I love your zoo visit, the Koi pond is beautiful. Us & them, are those beads for stinging? I like the b&w effect.

Grandpa looks great for 85! Your strange guest is a hobbit in disguise, right? ;)

WTF Etsy first - before I forget...
Stool chart by SHS - fill in a couple of letters and it's the SH**S, all righty. Truly disgusting! As to "who can resist an ugly baby?" Well, I can, for one - especially THAT horror. Finally, pocket bacon. Well, at least she KNOWS it's dumb ; )
On to your beautiful pictures - you outdid yourself this week - the tiles are so much fun - the birthday boy is just a lovely memory in the making - and the animal shots - my gosh! The Hoop and the technicolor bird is just wonderful - especially since he is wearing a neutral shirt - no competition for the bird ; )
And the baby giraffe, and golden eye, and no fear - and the koi. I also like your strange guest's style... All just fantastic, Ms. Tink!
And, mine are up.

Hell, I hope my hair looks that good if and when I get past eighty.

 
At 14 October, 2008, Blogger YellowRose said...

Fantastic photos!! Love the zebra, and the flamingos! Your grandpa is amazing, happy birthday to him!!

Love the Etsy stuff, the handful of pearls...I want!!!

Fun week....great choices and the kid with Vaders mask...too funny!

Sorry, too lazy to switch accounts-

I love your scrabbly photos, is that from Scrabble?? Cool idea!

Of course I love all the animal pics too, your photos always have the coolest "mood".

Mine are done, such as they are. :-\

 
At 14 October, 2008, Blogger Gramps said...

Hoop looks like he's too much fun.

 
At 14 October, 2008, Blogger Jay said...

That "No Fear" bird looks mean. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't pet him.

Great pics as always! I will play both this week's words AND next week's words next week.

Is it just me or do Darth Vader's feet look freakily out of proportion in this pic? Something about the head-on camera angle I'm hoping 'cause we're nearing Hobbit foot territory...

 
At 15 October, 2008, Blogger mrspao said...

You're so lucky - there are youthful genes in your family! Love the photos :)

Oh my god, I actually played!...!!! :)
I adore your photos, as always. 2 favourites: Strange Guest & Zebra.
Also, the gal who made the pocket bacon has some seriously crazy cute bunnies too. Have I ever mentioned how much I love etsy? *sigh*

Your photos make me want to go to Florida. As in, right now. Actually, there are lots of other reasons why I'd like to go to Florida right now, but you're at the top of the list. :)
