I want to apologize, I haven't been around much lately. I basically haven't had the chance to take any pictures recently. I have been traveling on this space ship here heading home but the darn thing was built with NO bathrooms and they only serve Iced Tea for drinks. Needless to say, we have to stop every 20 minutes for bathroom breaks at every Space Rest Stop we come across

Roger And Me

Roger And Me by hbmike2000

I recieved a phone call the other day and it was my good friend Roger. He asked if I wanted to go to Disneyland.

I said, YEA!
He Said YEA!
I said YEA
He said Shut up! and picked me up in a cab named Benny.

We arrived at Disneyland five minutes later and I still had two hairs left on my head, both grey I might add.

Roger yelled, Hey, check this out, as he stood on a stream of water shooting towards the sky. Take my picture, he begged. So I did. Your turn, he gleefully calls to me. So I stepped on the shooting stream of water that was headed towards the sky and that is how I got this picture of Roger and he got a picture of me getting an enema. I really don't like that Rabbit sometimes.

But I Thought Mountains Were Made To Climb

Apparently the Disney Police disagree with me. As I approached the half way mark on my quest for better cell phone receptions, I was shot in the rear by a tranquilizer dart ( who knew they had tranquilizer darts, right).

As I rolled down the side of the mountain, I saw THREE bars appear on my phone. I quickly dialed the number to my appearently very important call. The phone rang, my eyelids closing, I heard a familiar voice, Hello?. They heard, oof oof ow and a splash as I hit a puddle followed by zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz (yes appearently I snore).

We won"t mention what my next call was.

Seriously, You Are Messing Up My Focus

I was at Disneyland and had this perfect shot set up of Sleeping Beauty's Castle. Everytime I went to push the shudder button, this QUACK kept jumping into the shot and messing up my focus. So I kicked him. Then I rolled across the ground yellin owie owie owie and holding my foot. A six year old walked by and told me to grow up. The nerve!

Hmmm, Wedgy Or Banana Peel Trick?

I needed to cross the street but they were setting up the parade route and had my path blocked off by rope. So I asked Goofy what was the best way to sneak by these two cast members. He's still thinking.

View on Black or I'll be here for ever waiting to cross the street and there is some chicken standing next to me annoying the crud out of me. He keeps asking me why he should cross.

Hollywood Tower Hotel

One morning while staying at the Tower of Terror ... er ... Hollywood Tower Hotel, I noticed my room was over run by mice and other cartoon characters. So I hopped into my slippers, put on my fuzzy white hotel robe and headed out of the room. Briskly walking down the hall, robe flapping behind me like batmans cape cause I forgot the belt to the robe, I headed towards the elevator. As I passed other guests in the hallway, they were all screaming and running away from me. I assumed their rooms where also over run by mice and other cartoon characters. As I approached the elevators, I noticed they seem to all be out of order. Spying the service elevator, I quickly hopped in and pushed the lobby button. It took a few seconds before the elevator started moving but when it did, it did. I was flung to the ceiling as the elevator dropped towards the bottom of the hotel! Just as I thought the end was near, I was flung to the floor as the elevatoer sprang back up towards the top floors! Plastered to the ground with my robe up over my head I panicked, afraid I was gonna be shot out of the top of the hotel like Charlie and Willy Wonka. At the last second, the elevatore slowed, I breathed, it dropped. Plastered to the ceiling once again, robe wrapped around my face the elevator flew towards the ground and breakneck speeds. I began to cry. Death was surely looming for me this time. Just as I began to ask for mama, the elevator began to slow. I couldn't believe it. I stood, the elevator gently stopped and the doors slid open with a "ding". There stood a bellhop who looked at me and said, sir, we're gonna need you to come with us since we have asked you numerous times NOT to ride this in you robe and nothing else. You keep scaring the other guests.

I ran. Slippers slapping the pavement like a clock gone mad and my robe flying behind me like batmans cape.

View on black, I have pictures of me running away and I WON'T hesitate to show you!! (yes, they are the security tapes)

Did He Just Stick His Tongue Out At Me?

I was so close, right after I pushed the shutter button, he turned, breathed on the camera lens, wrote "Dork" in the condensation, stuck his tongue at me and flittered off. How rude!

What Are You Doing Down There?

With my camera in hand and my Hoya Close up lens +4, +2, +1 already attached, I was able to get this shot of this butterfly as it swerved passed me and crashed into this rose. I snuck up from underneath it and got within two inches of it before it looked down at me. I could smell the alcohol on it's breath. I snapped away and asked if it could pass me a beer. After two hours of drinking and goofing around, I called it a cab.

These are called Stone Face. It belongs to the lithop family. They are called Stone Face because it is very difficult to get these tiny tiny little things to ever smile. Just before I pushed the shutter button, I told it a joke and I got just a hint of a smile.

View on Black. I think you can hear it giggle.

Yes It Moved, Yes I Screamed

I was once woken up by my other half who explained to me I had been screaming in my sleep all night and wanted to know if I was OK. Not wanting them to worry I told the truth. While they were at work, the cat wanted to watch the movie Aracnaphobia. I got yelled at. Three days later I was woken again with concerns if I was OK because I had been screaming in my sleep all night once more. Not wanting them to worry, I told the truth. The replayed Aracnaphobia on TV again and the other cat wanted to see what he was missing. I got yelled at.

The Flexible Legs Of A DoDo

Every morning, Ramone stretches his legs so he doesn't get cramps when he chases Ramona down the driveway, Wolf Howlin' and yelling "Hey Baby!" while Ramona is chasing me down the driveway blowing kisses at me while I'm running down the driveway yelling HELP!
