Simply Bob



Plain. Simple in style, not in thought.

That’s Hawaii in the picture.

Not there.

It’s behind me.

Didn’t just crawl out of the jungle. Left some roots there.

Silence. Speaks volumes. Gives emphasis. Makes people nervous.

Wish it had some effect on that cat. She fancies herself in charge.

Insists on poking her paw in everywhere.

Note the picture she says is instructive.


(Silence. More silence….)

    I love the iguana. What time of material is it made from? My nephews once had a pet iguana named Iggy (I’m actually not a fan of having reptiles as pets). Iggy loved hiding in my long hair, moving from shoulder to shoulder, poking her head out of my locks. Then one day, Iggy grew up, got large and used her tail as a weapon. I didn’t care for her after that!

      Bob: “I came Indonesia. A few men carve Komodo Dragon Monitors. Others in the shop make furniture. I left the jungle so they might have better lives. Hair would make an appropriate jungle experience. Unfortunate Iggy didn’t appreciate you. We do.”

    Love the iguana. Clearly, he’s assessing the situation – as he should. Yesterday I came home about 4 and there in the shade were two much smaller lizards, deep into an intimate moment, shall we say? Talk about funny – both of them turned to give me “a look”, as though to say, “We’d be much happier if you just kept going.” I did.

    Lizards are wonderful.

    Goes without saying that I love the critters. But I also love the tulips! That coral/salmon color is one of my favorites in flowers, like tropicana roses. Perfect with the photo.

    Bob’s an iguana of few words but he has a way with them…

    Bob is a good name. šŸ™‚

    I’d love a lizard

    Hey bob. šŸ˜€

    Don’t fancy the lizards as pets for myself, but they are interesting. I’ll stick with the carved and stuffed kind too.

    “Dude, cats rule.”

    That’s from Sir Sweetie, who acknowledges “Bob’s good looks, apparently calm demeanor, and economy with words”…BUT believes that “cautionary advisements regarding Feline Supremacy are always pertinent in order to prevent impertinence before the fact.”

    (quotes from Sir Sweetie)

    This is from me, humble staff member:
    Wow! LOVE the picture, the flowers, the card, and Bob.
    A gorgeous tableau.

    Hi, Bob!

    Do you like cookies? Bye.

      Bob: “Caution: may bite the hand that feeds. Prefer that finger food. Friends at a distance? Bye.”

    Hmm, might there be a challenge to RC Cat for leadership of the realm?

    Bob blends in anywhere, doesn’t he?


  14. jannatwrites / Jun 23 2013 4:25 pm

    I like Bob. Cats do poke their paws in everywhere. Sorry, but I don’t think that will ever change šŸ™‚

    I approach Bob with humility and appreciation. I’m not sure if he wants to be looked in the eye.


  16. Sunshine / Jun 28 2013 3:11 pm

    hey, Bob…cool eyes you have. šŸ™‚
