It's not my daughter's birthday anymore

My daughter Actonbell says I have to "take down" the post below because it's not her birthday now. That girl. So pushy. Not so much. Generally.

I've been doing a lot of stuff, but I don't feel like writing it out, so I'll just post some funny pictures instead.


This game is probably called Chicken. I've heard about people playing Chicken, but didn't realize that it involved actual chickens. Who knew?

I've got nothing against cops...but then it's always fun to laugh at them. You know it's true.


Is this funny? I think it is. She has a secret admirer. Was that the idea?



This is my husband Niks. He's inside the State Capitol Building in Salem, Oregon. It's a Sunday. The Capitol Building is not open on Sundays. But I found a door that wasn't locked. Of course, I had to try a lot of doors before I found one out-of-the-way door that was unlocked, but it was unlocked. I did not break into the building. Notice the look of terror on his face? He was sooooo afraid that we would be arrested! That Niks. Now that's chicken.

Do you think he was terrified of being arrested as opposed to the realization that he married a burglar?

Quilldancer said...

What Doug said. I mean, I assume you were the one taking that photo? Well, that would mean Niks was looking at you! Enough said?

kenju said...

Can you be arrested for entering without breaking???

TLP said...

I've been terrifying and terrorizing Niks a very long time now. At the point when I took this photo, we were hearing footsteps echo in the halls. He assumed that a guard was on the prowl in the building.

I have white hair and I know how to use it. I ain't gettin' arrested.

god love him, the look on niks face is indeed priceless. "holy s***, tlp! take the picture already and let's get outta here!"

Ariel the Thief said...

LOL!!!!

But with one leg in the super saved black area. Not so chicken! TLP, knowing you, the guard showed you around, invited you for lunch and gave you a ride home. :-)

Just too funny!

A picture taken during open hours would have been boring. Why do you say your blog is boring? It never is.

actonbell said...

Ha, that Ariel! She's right, Dad's got one foot on the base. He's NOT out:)

Great post, I love the other pictures, too. Chickens are inherently funny.

I could learn something from you and your white hair TLP. Good going. You know I love that rooster picture.

Libby said...

tlp--you'd think that niks would be awfully used to you 'causing trouble' by now!! but, you know, he DOES look ready to hyperventilate...

gordaboo said...

Wait a minute: You had to drive right past me to get to Salem. Boo bah humbug, no visit to Ol' Hoss. Rats.

Rachel said...

You were entering without breaking!

Sounds like you should have visited oldhorsetailsnake.

Bela said...

Wonderful!

I'm quite good at using my white hair too. And I cry rather well. :-)

Yea...that would get good press.

Elderly couple arrested by police for finding an unlocked door in the State Capitol building.

The woman, identified as Tan Lucy Pez, said "there was not a sign saying don't open this door! I was just looking for a bathroom".

Fred said...

I could have used your skills when I took a trip to Louis XIV's palace at Versailles on a Monday when they weren't conducting tours.
