Chuckles and Chortles

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you all had a lovely weekend. We've been extremely busy lately working on something (I'll probably explain at another time) but we've been making sure to get out and enjoy this great weather we've been having. Yesterday we drove 20 minutes east to the lovely town of Gananoque and stopped at Confederation Park, which is located on the bank of the Gananoque River. And on this visit we saw a few feathered families with lots of little ones. Like this bunch:


*squee* Aren't they adorable? I wanted to run right up to them and scoop one up and kiss its little head and pet its soft - oh so super soft - downy plumage that will be replaced by feathers soon. But mama and papa goose were giving me the stink eye as I inched closer, so I restrained myself. Instead, I took a quick photo with my little point and shoot. And stayed safe.

Now let's get to the funny stuff!







Have a great day!

  1. Cute little feathered friends. Where I live we have so many that we have "Geese X-ing" signs on our roads. Funny cartoons. I love the cat one. It's so true.

    1. We live near the water and there are many geese around this time of year. I love watching the little ones grow.

  2. That pissed off cat made me laugh out loud! No, not the guilty laugh of recognition. No, really!

  4. LOL with all of them. Usually I have a favorite of the bunch, but none this time because they were all so great! So cute with the babies. I would have wanted to do the same thing!

  5. You always find the funniest cartoons. Loved them all. I especially love the look on the cats face in the 4th cartoon. Now that face means business!!!

    I, too would love to pick up little fuzzy babies and kiss their little heads. I am not thinking I would want to deal with the ensuing pecking on my head by their mommy though.

    Have a great day, Martha!!!

    1. Cheryl, I got as close as possible to those babies and knew when to call it quits. You don't want angry geese chasing and beating on you! They are pretty vicious when it comes to protecting their young. And who can blame them?

  7. I don't want to cross that kitty! LOL Those little goslings (is that the right word?) are adorable! I would like to rub their soft little down too. But I expect the mom goose would look as angry as that kitty does!

    1. Yes, they are called goslings. And they are so adorable when they're young. Very soft, too! But keeping a safe distance is important. The parents are extremely protective of their young and they will beat on you!

  12. Hey Martha,

    How's it goin', eh? Thought I'd hop over to your site and wouldn't you know it, there's a kangaroo joke. Nice jokes and thanks from somebody typing from Tuesday...

    Did you happen to see Ryan Gosling?

    1. Ryan Gosling...I should be so lucky, Gary! Just regular goslings on this outing :) Hope you're doing well, my friend. Your last post was very toughing. Love. Love will always win.

    2. Hi Martha,

      I reckon that Ryan Gosling would be the lucky one! I'm doing just fine, thank you. Thanks for acknowledging my latest post. I switched off the comments because I hoped that anybody kind enough to read my post, would just reflect upon it. Love will, most assuredly, be the force that overcomes hatred.

      Thank you, Martha. Take good care of your awesome self.

      Gary

    3. And you know I meant to write "touching" instead of "toughing", eh? Of course you did!

      Thanks for this, Gary. You're a special person and one of my favourite bloggers. Keep spreading the love.

    1. I've only eaten duck once many years ago. It was okay but I'd never eat it again!

  14. Love the paperclip one! I personally would get nowhere hear those goslings because I have a fear of and deep respect for the adult geese! -Jenn

    1. The adult geese can cause considerable damage if they feel their young are in danger. I watch for signs of warning and keep a safe distance!

  17. I had to stop and think about the flower one then realised what it was about. Slow day for me, lol.

    Where we live ducks don't exist as we don't have ponds or parks or anything, but blow me down one day, there were two flying in to my street and then waddled past my house like nobody's business. I was so shocked I didn't get a picture. Haven't seen any since and I've been here for nearly 22 years.

    I've also seen a blue striped bee, I'm 42 and I've only ever seen one in my lifetime but they do exist. I had to google it to make sure I wasn't imagining things.

    1. I am amazed with the blue striped bee! I've never seen anything like that and I'm sure I'd be stunned.
