Tom & Jerry, mouse hole and bowling

- Tom and Jerry cartoons are my favorite. I always like how Jerry has his little mouse hole to run through so Tom can't get him.

- This looks for all the world like a mouse hole here at the printing company. I mentioned that to co-worker Joanne in passing one day. Yesterday I spotted a plastic mouse peeking out and yes, she put it there, all the way back in October and I just now noticed. :)

- Any kind of whimsy is the best part of my day. Another bit of whimsy - the youth group at my church had bowling in the hallway on Sunday evening, using frozen turkeys - safely donated to charity before they could thaw.

lol! Your co-worker has a great sense of humor!

Now I'm trying to imagine handling a frozen turkey with any kind of finesse - lol!

That mouse picture is hilarious!

Funny mouse!
Today while I was going for my walk/run, I had a few short thoughts about things that I saw and I thought of you. I thought maybe I'll do an honorary blog post for Lynn. I'll post 3 thoughts that I had this morning while walking. But by the time I got home, the only thing I could remember was thinking that it would be neat to a post like yours.
How do you do it?!

Ow, I bet a frozen turkey on the toe would give a mighty hurtin'. Were they bowling down regular pins? Or stuffed chickens?

Lynn said...

Talon -

She does - wasn't that funny? It is why I keep my camera with me all the time.

Frozen turkey bowling - can you imagine doing that?

RK -

It came out pretty good!

Cookie -

That is the best compliment you could ever give me. I would love it if you did a three good things post! Sometimes I jot things down so I won't forget. Sometimes, like today, one leads to another. I had forgotten about the frozen turkey bowling thing until I typed the word "whimsy."

Jannie -

Too true! Regular pins, I think. :)

LL Cool Joe said...

I love Tom and Jerry.

So did you scream and stand on a chair when you saw the fake mouse? Did you get a rolling pin and shout out "THOMAS!!" :D

Lynn said...

Mommanator -

They certainly are!

Cathy -

I'm glad to hear your kids like the old cartoons. That's great.

Joe -

No - I spotted it and thought "there's a plastic mouse! I'll bet Joanne put it there." But yelling THOMAS would have been much better - waving rolling pin and all. :)

That's so funny about the frozen turkey bowling. :) And such a cute photo! I am amazed your co-worker didn't say anything about it before now; she's definitely patient to see her little joke pay off.

Mama Zen said...

My daughter adores Tom and Jerry. I get the biggest kick out of watching her watch the same cartoons that I did.

Lynn said...

Meredith -

I wouldn't have been able to hold it in - she definitely is patient.

Mama Zen -

Isn't that great? I'm glad she likes the old 'toons.

How'd I miss this post? I LOVE Tom and Jerry, too! Ah, the hapless, clueless Tom.

Really cartoons from that producer/era.
