Friday Cemetery Blogging

We just watched Sen. Lindsey Graham's speech at the Republican National Convention. Did anybody notice the really odd video stuff going on in the background? Who thought it was a good idea to put photos of military cemeteries in the background during a speech on military victory? I get what they were trying to do, but why not photos of air craft carriers or square-jawed army rangers or something?







That's an interesting stone, isn't it? I thought it was. Took me a while to figure out what it reminded me of.


I think Scooby would've liked it. Or maybe not.

You've discovered the missing ink!! (animation joke)

I missed the speech-i-fyin' tonight. Anything good?

I was wondering about the cornfields behind McCain...

I never scared much for old Scoobie-Doo and all his pals, for some reason. I guess I'm just not cool that way!

I did notice last night that the images behind the speaker did bring forth some rather odd images and thoughts in my mind, and I wondered why they did not realize ahead of time it would be a problem.

Rach, I just had to share this with you. It sounds like something one of your guys would do.

pg - ahhhh, Lincoln logs! Love 'em.

beth - the pictures were often distracting. just sort of odd.

annie - You don't love the original old Scooby Doo cartoons??? That's just...wrong. I'm gonna have to light a candle for you!

zorra - what a hoot!! Love that story, and yeah, it sounds just like one of my guys.

It's like they just could not stop. Like if a little bit of log was good then LOTS of log was even better!

It reminds me of Winnie the Pooh. Totally a hole he would get stuck in trying to get honey.

I think if you hit the right knot in the tree, it will open up a door to a torture dungeon like in Princess Bride. But that's just me.

SpookyRach said...

mindy - ha ha! I was totally not thinkin' WtP, but you've got a good point.

dijea - I like how you think!!!

Bunny - I love that I'm not alone on this. It just proves I'm not completely nuts.
