Lost u-boat spotted in Tbilisi garden

On my walk through the neighborhood this morning I had a feeling I was being watched. And then I noticed this.

Yes. I was being observed by submariners through a rusty old periscope.

I pointed it out to the tall person and suggested that a World War 2 submarine had survived the conflict and was hiding beneath our feet. The tall person smiled and admitted that it did look like a periscope but reminded me that we were many miles from the sea. He concluded that it was just a rusty old pipe.

Hmm. I just hope your skepticism is not torpedoed tall person.

The smoking squirrel

On my walk through the neighborhood today I noticed this strange sight.

I stood up against the tree to get a better look.

Secret smoker hides stash - Copy

I pointed it out to the tall person and remarked that the squirrel who lived in the tree had apparently stopped hoarding nuts and instead had adopted a very unhealthy smoking habit.

For once, the tall person was at a loss to explain this strange sight. We listened to hear if we could hear any wheezing or coughing squirrels but we heard none.

I suggested to the tall person that perhaps this heavy smoking tree rodent should start using nicotine patches and he agreed.

Soda rockets launched from Tbilisi

On my walk through the neighborhood today I saw this strange thing.

Soda Rocket

I pointed it out to the tall person and suggested that it was a soda rocket launcher that had fired all but one of its carbonated water beverages, bringing refreshment to thirsty people in the neighborhood. The tall person smiled and admitted that the device did have a passing resemblance to the Katyusha multiple rocket launchers used by the Soviet army in World War 2 and commonly called ‘Stalin’s Organ’. However, he assured me that it was a flower seller’s stand.

Hmm. An unconvincing explanation tall person. I don’t see any flowers but I do see a soda pop rocket ready for launch.

In the event of an emergency

On my walk through the neighborhood today I saw this.

Firefighter

I pointed it out to the tall person and suggested the occupant might be a firefighter who needs to be able to leave his home quickly in the event he is called to fight a fire in the neighborhood. The tall person smiled and told me that I had an overactive imagination.

Hmm. I was about to suggest that we wait until the firefighter received an emergency call so we could watch him slide down the tree and prove the tall person wrong but it was a hot day so we walked on.

The sounds of the forest

On my walk in the forest today I found this.

Record

I pointed it out to the tall person and suggested that this was where all the sounds of the forest came from.

He smiled and told me that it was a 33⅓ rpm microgroove vinyl record that operates as an analog sound storage medium.

Hmm. If there was no one in the forest to hear it would it still make a sound?

Apprehensive pup stalked by strange balls of light

On my walk through the neighborhood today I saw this.

Avoiding the spotlight

Yes. I had stumbled upon the enigmatic phenomenon known as ball lightning, in which strange globes of energy mystify, wander and even “attack” living things. By the look on this pup’s face he was clearly unnerved by this unwelcome attention.

I pointed it out to the tall person and asked if there was anything we could do to rescue the pup from this unexplained atmospheric electrical phenomenon. He smiled and told me that it was just sunlight and not the rare and little known kind of lightning that has the form of a moving globe of light.

Hmm. I don’t think the dog is convinced.

The colorful cotton bud salesman

On my walk through the neighborhood today I saw this.

I pointed it out to the tall person and suggested that the man must be delivering the colorful cotton buds to people in the neighborhood who have over-sized ears.

The tall person smiled and said that the man was a door-to-door salesman selling lightweight telescopic dusters that have a fine, electrostatic dust collecting head. 

Oh. So how do people with over-sized ears keep them clean? The tall person didn’t know the answer to that so we walked on.

Sharp toothed monster unfairly blamed in car attack

On my walk through the neighborhood today I saw this.

Yes, something had eaten this car! I pointed it out to the tall person and suggested that we be extra vigilant as a dangerous predator with extremely sharp teeth was clearly prowling the neighborhood.

The tall person smiled and said that the car had probably been in a crash and subsequently stripped of anything useful.

Oh. That is a sad fate but my neighbors will be relieved that a sharp toothed monster is not on the loose.
