IF : Riding Bare-Backwards


Zappo the cat left home at a very young age to join the circus. Till this day, Zappo always rides his flying pig backwards because his mother long ago said, " Always remember where you came from."

Okay, so Zappo took it literally.
You can see my Moleskine entry here :)

  13. This is the first montage I've ever seen you do,Laurel. I hope you do more of them. I really like it.

    What a bummer. I'm always so careful about proofing. I always proof my text over and over, but I blew it this time. Now I wish that everyone would text the skip and just look at the pictures.

  18. I just corrected the typo, Laurel. I hope not too many people noticed it. I'm so glad you pointed it out. I'm a stickler for no-typo text on my blog. Feel free to let me know if you ever catch any other typos.

    We leave in a couple hours on our South Sea expedition. It's hard to believe that this week we will be where those pictures on my blog were taken.

  24. Hahaha- excellent everything here! & I agree w/Brine- great feel to this. (Pigs must be in the air- I've been working on ptg of one since I got back fm rdtp)
    The name Zappo reminds me of Harpo- which reminds me of Groucho- who I bet would love your sense of humor.

  27. PS I am passing you the 'true blue' award; for those on the net being true blue to others - through thick and thin. (ok I am paraphrasing). I bet that you already have a collection of these; but if not you can read more about it here:

    However I am a bit prejudiced, as I am partial to kitties and pigs.
