For your amusement

A few of my pals have been going through some rough times lately.
So I'm thinking it's time for a bit of levity. 
Allow me to introduce to you a few of the critters who keep us company
 in the Mystical land of Minnesota . . . 

Middle Earth isn't the only place with Ents!



And when in Hinckley, you must see Panda, the Proud



Melbourne may have the Defiant Daisy, but Grand Marais is home to the Savage Walleye



Meanwhile, even the pavement maintains our reputation for "Minnesota nice"


Though our flying pigs do get benched from time to time



But do be careful, because you never know when you'll encounter a 'timber'wolf!



And for those who still read books (and not just blogs), you'll find us a beary literate state to visit



So, my friends, keep your chins up, because blue skies are on their way

Especially if you pay us a visit!

The pictures are amazing they remind me a lot about when I used to live in the state, you people have such strange ways you like to decorate things like, I hated that at first but now I love that decoration that you do. But what I like the most is that you do not care about what other people say regarding your looks

Very, very smile inducing, from one who could use one. Lots-o-bears in the land of lakes.

I love Grand Marais. I watched the northern lights there, lying on a dock. And then went to the dump to watch the bears feed.

Visits here always a treat! Had to chuckle at your levity photos. Found concrete smile kinda dolphin-esque. "Laugh and the world laughs with you. Cry and you're probably watching the wrong channel. "Groucho Marx. What other funny stuff do you got for this week?

Love the photos - especially the book-bear! I'm trying to read as much as I can. Are you on Goodreads? Did I send you an invitation?

Love 'em all! Thanks for the chuckle.

Very amusing, Kathleen! But the natural ones, like the tree and pavement, are the best to come across.
