Will It Go Round In Circles?

I must have circled the city three times doing errands and whatnot yesterday and continued the pace today with the Rat Boys.

Can I have a whistle can I have a whistle?


Back around to Lake Mendota heading west

These guys again, I saw them last week in the UW Sports Medicine parking lot

Say Cheese! Wrigley

It's still there.

And it's still windy

And Cubs fans are still talking about the 2016 World Series (of course they are)

And it's still fun to root for the Brewers there

Yet the attitude seems new, and unnervingly friendly

A few of the Irish cousins standing around the inimitable Ron Santo 

These girls wanted us to share their Moscow Mule (Nanci did but it's the last thing I needed)

Moscow Mule
1.5 oz vodka
4 oz ginger beer
Fresh lime
Pour over plenty of ice in a clean copper mug

Even though I was alcohol-free I was getting Harry Carey vibes from this dog

Another unforgettable voice of the enemy I mean Cubs

Stand up and sing, then smile like it's 2016 because it's time to SAY CHEESE!

Warm Weather Walkies

I've started my warm weather walking routine at the Old Farts park in Middleton again and the Rat Boys couldn't be happier. Lots to see, smell and try to eat (you're watching both ends with these two).

Handsome Bob pretends he's a sea captain on the pier behind the gazebo

Treat treats in your pocket there are treats, pocket treats, my treats, treats treats treats

It was fun to use the Toy Effect Filter on these new flowers 

Bobby Boy looking for a nice patch of mud

The Rat Boys watched the progress of these two with interest and Handsome Bob was over the moon when they stopped to say, "Hi."

Say Cheese! Boat Dogs

Cheese Boats, they're a thing. Click here for a recipe I'll never make by Trisha Yearwood on the Food Network website.

We had these lake faring dogs to entertain us while waiting an insane amount of time for a BLT and a fish sandwich

I wondered what the best boat dog was as I watched these two lolling about their pontoon and found this article from BoatU.S. for three good candidates: The Novia Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, the Schipperke, and the Portuguese Water Dog, a breed I've always wanted to hang out with.

DisemBARK and c'me 'ere because it's time to SAY CHEESE!

Another Wheel

The West Towne Mall midway usually arrives in early May, but everything is late this year, crops, warm weather, impeachment hearings...

A classic Ferris wheel and a much photographed (by me) Rock Star ride

Linking up today with Brian's Home and It's Small Town Life for Thankful Thursday and Yogi's Skywatch Friday.

Say Cheese! Wheel

That's a joke, son, a flag waver.

So put down your beer, brat, burger, hot dog or wheel of mozzarella because it's time to link up and
Say Cheese! (son).

Not Cheese Yet

We came across these amusing fellows at Peck's Market today.

Have a safe and happy Memorial Day wherever you end up.

Cheap Shot

I've been ignoring my better, heavier Canon and relying on my cheaper, lighter,  tough camera.
It might not take the best photos but I love its Impressive Art filter even though it feels like cheating.

Filter or no we've had way too much rain and the Farmer's are in Dire Straits

Linking up with Yogi's Skywatch Friday.

Say Cheese! (Cake) WI Dells

The Dells,  I lost my car there for a week in the seventies then found it with a note saying it was driving well and thanks for the wheels. I didn't really know it was missing until I saw the note. I think they may have washed it too. What's that saying about God looking out for drunks and fools?

This Silver Lady wafted out of Cheesecake Heaven toting a silver pillar. 

Say Cheese, Wisconsin Dells! Although I'd normally share my mother's sinful yet heavenly and quite serious cheesecake recipe, I've put on five pounds just typing the word, "cheesecake" (so that's what, 25 pounds?).

Say Cheese! Mississippi River

From my birthday weekend hang on the mighty Mississip.

I'd like to draw your attention to the No Parking signs

Say Cheese! Spring, Spring?

We had a day or two of spring-like weather, summer on Easter and then it snowed. It's been cold and rainy ever since. Maybe if I put on the Infinity Gauntlet and snapped my fingers it will take me back to last Friday.

Mid-Week Rat Hang

I haven't seen my rat boy buddies for a while and yesterday was supposed to be one of the last nice days of the week. We were thankful for the chill hang and the nice weather.

I think I woke him up from a nap
I keep hearing the word, "snow."

Oliver had a lot to tell me
And there are phrases like, "When the spring weather will start feeling like winter again."

Have you forgotten someone?
If it melts right away did it really ever happen.

It's me, Handsome Bob.

Did I mention it was 82˚ on Easter?
Bob, Oliver and I are linking up with Brian's and It's A Small Town Life's Thankful Thursday.
