Whatever you do don’t blow your bugle!

On my walk through the neighborhood this morning I saw this confusing set of instructions.

I pointed it out to the tall person and suggested that as we had wandered into a highly restricted zone we would need to very careful not to transgress the rules.

The tall person agreed.

Hmm. I have one suggestion tall person. Perhaps you should stop playing your bugle before we proceed.

He reluctantly agreed but thought it was unfair that this simplest of brass instruments, that has no valves or other pitch-altering devices, had been singled out.

I couldn’t argue with that.

Customized smart car fails to leap canyon in Tbilisi

On my walk through the neighborhood this morning I saw this strange sight.

I pointed it out to the tall person and suggested that the intrepid driver of this customized smart car had clearly failed in his attempt to leap across the canyon outside our local supermarket.

The tall person smiled and explained that the customized smart car was in fact a shopping cart designed to carry a child.

Hmm. I don’t think small children should be attempting such dangerous stunts, even with the precaution of a custom roll cage and training wheels.

Fence contractor goes the extra mile to save tree

On my walk through the neighborhood today I saw this.

Funny Tree

I pointed it out to the tall person and remarked that the fencing contractor went to incredible lengths to preserve the tree. He smiled and said that it was indeed an extraordinary engineering feat.

Yoga for elephants

On my walk through the neighborhood this morning I saw this.

Yoga for Elephants

Yes. Yoga classes for elephants.

I pointed it out to the tall person and suggested that yoga would be very helpful to elephants as they always appear very stiff, especially when walking. The tall person smiled and agreed that it would be helpful but the yoga classes are in fact for people, not elephants. He explained that the elephant depicted on the poster is a representation of Ganesha, one of the most popular deities in the Hindu pantheon.

Hmm. I should have guessed. I have never seen an elephant in the neighborhood so there would be no point in offering them yoga classes.

Cat shirks household chores

On my walk through the house today I saw this.

Barnaby

Yes. Barnaby had fallen asleep whilst doing the vacuuming.

He did look tired. I hope that the tall person does not find him sleeping and think that he is shirking his chores.

I later found out that Barnaby had fallen asleep after just one minute’s vacuuming. Hmm.

Wasps strengthen home security

On my walk through the yard this morning I saw this.

The wasp was obviously concerned about home security and had installed an impressive lock on the entrance to its nest.

I pointed it out to the tall person and asked if this was a response to a possible spate of burglaries on wasp homes in the neighborhood. He smiled and told me that it is a key hole on one of the doors in our yard and not a wasp home.

Hmm. I was wondering how the wasp would be able to carry its keys.
