Project Blue: Last Call
It’s time to bid adieu to Project Blue. Stop by Anna’s Place to see all the entries.
Some really great photography out there.
One of the best moments from one of my favorite films ‘Steel Magnolias’ is when Olympia Dukakis tells a bedazzled and bejeweled Darryl Hannah that “the only thing that separates us from the animals is our ability to accessorize”.
My animals have accessories.
One of Siren’s favorites is his official George W. Bush catnip filled pal. I use the term pal loosely.
The back view is Siren’s. It’s worn and its stuffing is coming out. It has seen some rough times. The reason I call it an accessory rather than a toy is because Siren will walk around carrying it in his mouth. If only it were that easy to keep tabs on the real one!
Siren will also drop his ‘W’ then jump on it as though shocked that it’s there. He sits on it until he can get his back paws around it and then flips over and pummels that sucker. He’s such a good boy!!
The front view is Mia’s. It’s a lot younger than Siren’s so it looks better but it’ll probably always look good. I fear that Mia might be a Bush Republican! She looks at it confused then licks it once or twice and pushes it into a corner. She doesn’t want to play with it and she doesn’t want to hurt it – she just wants it to get the hell out of her way.
I think the photo is pretty clear but just in case:
Left hand – EZ Guide to Being President
Right hand – Super Hero Comics
Back pocket – English as a Second Language
On his back – If found return me to the White House
Lapel pocket – Bad Guy Cards
Left wrist – Time to Cut Taxes watch
His red cowboy boots have giant Ws on them.
Take a look at the great stuff at Fat Cat Inc. – I got these at a local store but you can order them and lots more from the site.
