How Did This Happen?


I recently received these pictures in an e-mail from a friend. How DID these animals get into their predicaments, I wonder?


how did this happen

This poor fellow was probably just peeking out from behind this cinder block wall when he saw a cat and decided to give chase.




One little hole and one big elephant doesn’t make for a good situation.




This donkey didn’t watch where he was going, either…




Rest break after a long climb up.




“Care to take  a drive with me?”




“The view from here really isn’t all I thought it would be.”




Bah, bah blue chair, I think you have some wool….




Do you  think he’s looking for Pooh’s hidden honey pot?




No room for a U-turn here!




I thought pigs liked to wallow in the mud…




Gives new meaning to having a spare tire around the middle.


I’ll be stuck inside today, anticipating the snow that started coming down about an hour ago. We’re supposed to get about six inches or so, but I never trust the weather service. The husband took my SUV to work today, and no way I’m driving his car in this weather. I’d be sliding into a ditch after rounding the first corner! So, I guess I’ll organize my  desk and contemplate an upcoming project.  Stay warm, those of you who are experiencing this same type of winter weather. And for those of you who are basking in temps above freezing,  just count your blessings and know that you’re lucky.  

                                                                                 ‘Cause, baby- it’s cold outside!

Hi Sue. I like your new banner.
I love the cow with the toy car on his head, sorry it is funny.
I am not liking having to work snow days and driving when it is bad out. DIdn't know I would have to do this when I took my job. Yikes.

Hi Sue, your blog is looking fresh! How funny is this? Thanks for the smiles.

Jo said...

Love the new banner! Snow has started hope you are in warm and cozy...

Andrea said...

oh no! Poor little creatures! I've been brought in some strange situations at the vet clinic also, but nothing quite like this!

Lori E said...

Some days are a test aren't they. Lol. Poor little critters.
The banner looks great Ethel. We got snow too but it is barely an inch. Won't keep me in all day. The pile of laundry might but not the snow.

Shelia said...

Hi Sue! First of all, love your new header!
Oh, some of these photos break my heart. At least, I hope, they were helped out of their situations! :)
be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Sue, I am glad to see I am not the only one that can get myself in these kind of messes! When I was a teenager on spring break in Daytona I got my head stuck in a porch railing! The fire dept had to cut me out. Talk about embarrassing with all the cute guys watching.

Custom Comforts said...

That poor horse looks so uncomfortable. Makes me sad. A few of the other pics I bet are Photoshoped. A good Photoshop person can make any situation look real.
Wish I was at home enjoying the downfall. At least the bus is driving me home and I don't have to deal with the roads and other drivers.

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Sue, what funny pictures. Baby it's cold outside here, too. I am going to get cabin fever. Roads are solid ice. It is actually getting brighter while I am typing. Supposed to get colder tonight so that means refreezing what melts which will be very little with a high of 33 today. Stay warm. I am working on a project since I can't get out anyway. Might as well be productive.

I once saw a young der stick its head into a neighbors watering can to drink. The can got stuck on its head and it ran around wildly for an hour till it finally shook it off!

We are awaiting snow again too, on top of the 5 in we got Sat night which has now turned to ice. Just have to wait it out. We have food and a warm house, so it won't be so bad!
Still trying to purge and organize in the basement! Ugh!
Think I'll call The Pickers from TV and let them come take it! :)

Stay safe, Sue!

Olive Cooper said...

Love the new header. Get ready for the snow. It's awful here in Georia. I have cabin fever already!

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Oh my word! Wonder how they got the elephant out of there, since they are so heavy?
Like your new header! I need to "spiffy" up my blog a bit
Stay in and stay warm. Sun shining today, but it is so cold.

Jo said...

My favorite is the cow with the toy pedal car!...hope their all alright.


Pam said...

I like the new banner! That poor horse with his head stuck in the tree is cute. Looks like he has just given up.

Erin@likegrandmas said...

You said it, it's cold outside, and snow, snow, snow. I did shovel the drive way, well, I blew it with the leaf blower and scraped some ice...yuck.

Suzanne@Meridian Road said...

You know, I think I feel sorriest for that poor elephant!

Stay warm! We're supposed to get snow tomorrow. It will be an improvement, I think. Today's high is about 12 degrees.

Brenda Kula said...

Poor babies! So funny. Your banner looks fantastic!

Tammy@beatrice banks said...

Poor things! It is funny though!

La said...

See what happens when you are too curious for your own good....

Brown Shoe said...

And I thought I had gotten into some crazy fixes! Funny. It is cold and snow here in the "sunny south" as well. Thanks for pics! Stay warm and safe. Linda J

Wishing the snow away!!!! Hope to chat soon!

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

yeppers...cold here too. The weather guys were wrong (again) and Virginia just got a dusting of snow but it sleeted all day yesterday...The sun is shining brightly today to melt it all (thank goodness). Love your new banner Sue. I am seeing changes all over blog land. :) xoxo

Crystal Rose Cottage said...

Love the new banner! I see lots of snow blowing off of my roof and I am staying in today! Paid some teens to dig out my driveway. Hopefully we will have a lull in the activity until the next "event". ~xoxo, Patti

vintagesusie & wings said...

Hey Friend,
Super funny DID those poor animals get in those predictiments??? LOL
Stay warm girl, the news was just saying that the east coast was gtting hit with a huge storm...I hope you have a SNUGGY!! LOL

Ocean Breezes and Country Sneezes said...

Oh, those poor animals, hopefully they weren't harmed, but they were pretty funny to look at! We are getting hammered with snow in MA! I think were're up to about 18 inches and counting . . . it's not supposed to end until mid-nite!

Lou Cinda @ Tattered Hydrangeas said...

I hope they were all saved from their predicament! That poor elephant!

We got 8" of snow and ice on Sunday night and into Monday...going into day 4 out of school! We don't "do" snow down here.....

Stay warm!

LOL....funny pics. Thanks for the well wishes on my shoulder surgery. I hope yours feels better and you don't need to go through this.

Love your new banner!

A Hint of Home said...

You're so right about the cold. We've had a long cold snap & plenty of snow. So rare for SC.
We've gotten cleaning done this week and now cabin fever is setting in.

Sharing with Sherri said...

Oh boy those critters do the darnest thangs don't they?!! The cow with it's head stuck in the kids car while it's cow pal looked on cracked me up the most! I guess it didn't feel like hoofing it that day;)

Sorry to hear, your having to fend off the cold girl. We've had a raining day here today, but nice weather is just around the corner!
And yes, I'm counting my blessings!

Hope some nicer weather is just around the corner for you too!!
Till then try and stay warm...

Hugs, Sherri:)

Bonnie@Creative Decorating said...
