Some Things in Life Just Make Me Smile...

Some things in life just make me smile.

Like sugary cereal.  Especially when we have it for dinner...

Don't panic.  We only do this every once in awhile (sometimes more).  Plus, these cereals are fortified with vitamins and minerals and other fortification stuff.

Also, this random cat that adopted us makes me smile, and wheeze, and cough...

But she sure is pretty and purry. Just look at those green eyes...

And, this monkey's green hair make me smile.

The poor gal in the background is smiling too.  She's probably unaware that a very lovely photo was just taken of her getting her hair colored.  Something tells me that she would not be smiling if she knew that her picture is now on a blog post.  

Dolphins, jumping out of the water always makes me smile.  

I could have touched this one.  But Pete said that it is against the law and that I would get arrested, and besides they have conical teeth that can close on your hand like a zipper.  So, sorry Flipper, but I will not be petting you anytime soon. Because spending the night in jail with missing fingers would not make me smile. 

Really, cute monkey boys standing by fake skeletons makes me smile. 

Especially, when the Little Monkey is totally convinced that he is the bravest monkey of them all because he just touched a "real" skeleton.  After he posed for this picture (which he insisted that we take), he said that the bones belonged to John Henry.  Um...okay?

Little domestic bunnies running wild (or hopping wild) on an island, makes me smile. 

Two years ago there were two bunnies, now there are a gazillion.  You know what they say about rabbits...

This hot sea captain makes me smile...

You know what they say about hot sea captains...

Sand mermaids make me smile...

And make me think of Zoolander. Which make me laugh really hard because it is a hilarious movie and once when I was watching it, I may or may not have laughed so hard that I choked on the chocolate milkshake that I was drinking and spit it out all over Pete. 

"Moisture is the essence of wetness.  And wetness is the essence of beauty."  Derek Zoolander 

And finally, cheeseburgers make me smile. 

They just do. 




  1. I'm so happy you had so many "smiles" last week. Love you, friend.

  2. I can't wait to hear about your time in NY. Let's chat!
