Nice of everyone to skip over the pictures I like best.

Bits-n-Pieces on July 19, 2008

LOL, Guy: It's been up for a few days and you haven't clicked or commented yet, either!

Do you see the angler fish (without it's dangler, though) with the moon as its eye?

and pretty funny you just now decided to comment on this one. I had just signed in to upload this related shot, so now I have a more specific title for it!

Amazing shot!!!

Congrats!!! Kostas

Question. How do you keep a Panoramio girl in suspense?

Answer. Don't comment on her new pictures for a few days.

Bits-n-Pieces on July 21, 2008

Panoramiana vs. Panoramiano ! LOL

I think I've discovered what the big jawed critter in the tree was guarding: Fire Ants! Never knew we had them here. But it explains why the bites were in tracks around my feet, and why I wanted to cry.

And just for the record: it was I who got first tracks on the bear, not KML. Just thought you should know that when I mention I'd like to see a photo and one soon appears, I aim for first tracks and comments! ;D

Very very very cool bear shot!

Poor B-n-P! And does fire ant venom also affect the brain? **Kamaly commented on the bear, but you didn't. Hope the bark on your legs heals. Guy.

Bits-n-Pieces on July 21, 2008

now now now, Guy, you should be nicer than that! I got first tracks and started to write the first comment, but then figured more people might see it on the comment list and click on it on Kamaly's page, rather than here in the Sargasso Sea! But the answer is yes, Fire Ant venom does affect the brain. That's now my excuse for everything this week!

someGuyinmasset on July 22, 2008

Now let me get this straight, you were into the spirits and fire-water when some ants snagged you and your brain was affected?

Bits-n-Pieces on July 23, 2008

well, I'd not admitting to anything, though I sure could have used some afterwards! But I was too busy slathering every product I could find with cortizone, benedryl and benzocaine on my feet to even think of having any. I suppose your theory isn't quite as embarrassing as my own shear stupidity!

A vote for a beautiful photo and for the pain and suffering, just like Guy!!!.

Bits-n-Pieces on August 2, 2008

Thanks very much, Helen! Yes, we all do put up with pain and suffering when reading the silly puns in Guy's titles, don't we? Ahhh, but at least, unlike this photo, Guy's puns are worth it! I do keep thinking I should have waited and posted this one around Halloween, though!

And Kostas, if you've returned from vacation and see this, Thank you so much, also! I thought I did so after you commented, but looks like it must not have stick. Cheers!

someGuyinmasset on August 2, 2008

Honestly B-n-P! Shamelessly flaunting your modesty! It's a great picture. Guy.

kamalyn on August 2, 2008

ha-ha, perhaps trying to be a bit humble, Guy, but I did seriously mean that almost no photo was worth the 3 or 4 days of pain afterwards and over a week of only wearing pants in the middle of a hot humid summer! The initial groans at your jokes, on the other hand always quickly turn to laughs! Of course I was also trying to finally get you to outright praise the photo. Success! and so Thanks!

someGuyinmasset on August 2, 2008

So, all because of this picture you went topless for over a week? I am impressed B-n-P!

someGuyinmasset on August 14, 2008

This is funny B-n-P, I've been looking all over to find the conversation, I was gonna put up a link for Steve also, but I gave up and there it was, on top of my comments!

kamalyn on August 15, 2008

guy - paying the price of your own conversation methods, huh? :D I guess it was easy for me to remember the since its all part of the same itchy memory! and I've finally found the photo of yours with my total non sequitur comment responding to your little joke above. It sure must puzzle anyone who stumbles on it!

gnarlysurferdude on August 15, 2008

I usually end up paying for something I say, "I do" really comes to mind.

Did you ever see Monty Python's "Funniest joke in the world?" You died if you heard or read the whole thing, so they taught pieces of it to soldiers, that way they could kill the enemy by telling the joke without dying themselves, (none of them knew the whole joke).

someGuyinmasset on August 15, 2008

Darn it **Gnarly, I told you to sign out last night!

Bits-n-Pieces on August 15, 2008

LOL, so **Gnarly mooches your computer as well as your camera, Guy? gee, you need to learn some of his moves! And I've beaten the joke to death, so I won't make yet another comment about the price you apparently paid for those two words. Certainly would send fear of a repeat into the heart of any man ;)

But very interesting to find out you're just trying to save us all from the untimely demise we'd all suffer if we read through a complete running Guy dialog! (though I did feel close to that fate the first time I saw 'and now for something completely different'...especially with the Parrot sketch. Had never heard of them until then, and was totally unprepared!)

and I'm certainly glad steve111 gave me a reason to explain that photo! it does send the wrong message, but I think its a cool photo!

Marbiz on August 24, 2008

My head is in a spin reading, jumping in and out of photos and comment threads. But worth for a good laugh. Thanks Guy for pointing the way.

This is a super photo B-n-P or kamaly or whoever you are. Great "stick" legs too. M
