Pachyderm Pool Party Time!

by Kimberly A. Cook

We’ve been blessed with some sun recently and us Oregonians know how to party when the rays appear. Even our Oregon Zoo elephants get in on the fun.

Sam is enjoying the great weather a couple days ago by playing in the pool.

Have a great, safe weekend and Happy Quirky Friday!

The Cat, You Idiot!

by Kimberly A. Cook              (Twitter@  WarriorTales)

If you’re one of the three people on the planet who haven’t seen this video about brothers who pranked their little sister after her wisdom teeth were extracted, you’re in for a treat. I laughed so hard I cried when I saw it. It also made me incredibly grateful I grew up without brothers and YouTube. Thank you Lord!

Since she had cotton stuffed in her mouth, they even put subtitles for our viewing pleasure.

The prank went viral and caught Ellen’s attention as you can see from the second video. What makes me a proud woman veteran is to see how this young woman under the effects of anesthesia had the wits and gumption to keep it together to make decisions to protect her family from the zombie apocalypse. Then of course the whole cat thing. Spec Ops Cat approves!

Happy Quirky Friday and have a great weekend!

Scrat In Space!

Not sure how I missed this trailer in December, but so glad I stumbled across it this week. Scrat is my hero! It also really lets us know how the universe was born. So if you’ve got rain and the will winter never end blues, let Scrat help you out. Scrat in space!

Have a great weekend and Happy Quirky Friday!

Ghostbusters Gals Rock It!

by Kimberly A. Cook                (Twitter@  WarriorTales)

Ghostbusters is almost back! This summer the women are going to rock the box office showing off their brains and ghost catching skills. The only thing I like better than a 1980s classic movie, is a great sequel!

Can’t wait to watch this flick. In the meantime, let’s all hum the theme song all day long. Have a great weekend and Happy Quirky Friday!

Been On A Weekend Shopping Safari?

by Kimberly A. Cook               (Twitter@   WarriorTales)

Spent this past weekend dashing around like a maniac. Zipped over to Craft Warehouse for their tent sale on Saturday, then managed to get stuck in our first rain storm in two months on the freeway. The downpour created two traffic jams and two car wrecks I avoided in 75 minutes trying to get to my writer support group; but All’s Well That End’s Well. Made it!

A favorite sign at Craft Warehouse. I may have to go back and get this....

On Sunday I zoomed over to the grocery store to hand off a wedding gift and try to beat the after church crowds at the same time. While waiting at the designated outside meeting spot, I noticed the bees busily working away on the flowers in the garden center. Go bees! Took out my ever ready camera and got a few pics.

Then finished up Sunday by binge-watching three “Who Do You Think You Are” shows on The Learning Channel before the start of the new season that night. It’s like a cozy mystery for every show and so fun to follow the genealogy trails.

I enjoy when they use military records, since heaven knows there is always paper involved when serving in the military. A nice by-product of the tv watching was Spec Ops Cat approved of the lap time.

So we got some rain, had a cool weekend, and here comes the heat again. Seriously, Mother Nature is having hot flashes and I can do without temps in the 90s. Let’s hope for cooler temps than predicted and if not, keep your cameras ready for the outfits! In high heat I see the most amazing clothes combos.

Bee on the job. Even on Sunday!

P.S. Happy Birthday to Beatrix Potter today. Her “little bunny book” as she called it, “Peter Rabbit,” helped her preserve hundreds of acres in the Lake District of England. The little bunny that could!

Born To Be Wild For Spring?

by Kimberly A. Cook                 (Twitter@   WarriorTales)

Spring starts today! Except on the East Coast where it’s snowing. Again. Brutal! So sorry East Coasters.

So us best, West coasters have to make up for that and our thoughts turn to water sports! Spring Break to me always means the Beach Boys, the soundtrack of my youth.  So since I couldn’t find a “Surfin USA” video I liked enough, I went with the next best thing, Steppenwolf and Diesel!

Yes, I have the actual Steppenwolf vinyl record with “Born to be Wild” on it, still. Might be my new theme song. So Happy First Day of Spring! Happy Spring Break for those who have it! Happy Quirky Friday! Get your freak on!

P.S. And check out the great guns on Diesel’s jet ski driving daddy. Yowsa!
