GRANDMA KAYAK


 
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist   GRANDMA KAYAK
GRANDMA KAYAK

THIS IS
Grandma Kayak, Folks!

She Is My GRANNY And She
INVENTED THE KAYAK!

I know, I know.
WHO KNEW, right?

She Loves Nature And Designed The
Kayak After Grandpa Died.
(He Choked Eating A Wild Hickory Nut).

Anyway, Kayaks Are Enjoyed
ALL AROUND THE WORLD NOW
And Come In A Variety Of Colors Based
On All The Colors She Has
CHANGED HER HAIR TO.
(Granny Always Loved Personal Touches!)

She's bit "Out There"
BUT WE LOVE HER.
(When We Can Find Her!)
SHE IS USUALLY TRAVELING DOWN A RIVER.

Actual Photo taken three years ago when
Granny Had Lost A Little Too Much Weight
On That Silly Dr. Aardvarks Diet.

(MT) May 2010 HUMOR

  I do believe you are RIGHT Mumj!

Yesterday she met up with me (LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD) and we had lunch at her place after she picked me up in her BLUE KAYAK but she said she had to go take care of:

"SPECIAL THINGS that were NONE OF MY BEESWAX ..."...

GOSH! I never thought she meant THE NORTH POLE!

WOW!

So you MUST BE RIGHT!

  Such a great looking grandma you've captured here Lulu! I agree with Mumj!!!I think I saw her at the North Pole too, cursing at wild hickory nuts that caused her to be alone in this world!!! She had more fun when grandpa was floating in the river along her side! I like her sunglasses!

  Very beautiful capture of grandma Laura!! I've been wanting to do something with my hairlate. I'm wondering, do you happen to know if grandma uses an over the counter color and of so could I get the brand and number??

  GRANDMA KAYAK sure has personality, that's for sure, SSSL! I love her hair that matches her glasses so well.
I remember her without her colored hair. I wonder when she had that done.
Anyway, I love it!!!!!!

  Yes, Brother Rolan she misses grandpa, too. She actually thinks he went to a place called "Tarnation" and will be back I think?...She is always says "Where in Tarnation did he go?"

*

Tommy, Grandma uses PS Spray Paint. The color number is called 1-2-3-GO! Thanks! She will be pleased that you asked! :D

*

Thank you Lynne! :)

*

Hi Surfer Robert! I bet you see a lot of this hair madness at the beach too???

*

Hi SSSKiki! She sure does. We always try and get her to blend in with nature but she said she can surely well do that when it's "Game over!"...She's a character, that one. Her hair has been this way for months. We think this is why we saw more wild life this year.

Did you know that moose can chuckle? Yep.

*

Thanks everyone! This might be the photo we use for the milk carton if we dont hear from her soon?

  I think I saw grandma sailing down that Crazy River just this morning,Laura! She did look a little maigre( that's French for lean or thin). She certainly is still looking good though. Hope that is the way Grandpa really died?????????????????MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM
Your imagination is endless ---super fun work here,my friend!

  Yah -really- Paddy! Maybe she is RUNNING AWAY? Humm...I might need to check into her WILD HICKORY NUT story...She might be up that river without paddle!!! HA!

* * *

Thanks Doug! I sure hope she makes it to the North Pole where the Elf's can fatten her up a bit!!! Paddy said she looked MIAGRE. Poor Granny. She usually has plump cheeks.

* * *

Lets hope Granny keeps HERS Marisol. It's a long way the the POLE. A lot could happen to her between here and there.

PADDY IF YOU CAN STILL SEE HER, THROW SOME LOBSTERS IN HER BOAT, WOULD YOU? I suppose she is long gone by now?

  If Granny ever comes home to us, Sister Karen, would you like her to do your hair?

She will even throw in two bonus colors of your choice!

(She loves those old glasses of hers! They are her signature spec's!)

What a fantastic capture our Grandma Kayak, Sis! Love the way her glasses match the icing in her hair! ... which looks good enough to eat, by the way. :D
Oh, and I looked for that Colour Number at the Paint store and they said they were all out! Guess that means it's really popular! I think maybe Tommy stocked up on it! LOL! :D
Anyway, Grandma never looked better! Great capture, Laura! :)

I really appreciate each of you coming by to congratulate me and celebrate.

GRANNY on the other hand doesn't even know you have been here yet. She took off up the river to catch Salmon with her bare hands. She is still pretty fast! She said something about using the iodine for a new hair color she is working on??? She will be thrilled to know you have been here to admire her! (Snort snort!)

  Patrick, how did you know Granny puts the campfires out with her feet? We just thought she loved sporting black shoes but when we looked closer...well...you know the rest.

*

Yes, Julianne! Salmon oils. Granny is a huge believer in them and used to use them as hair conditioner as well, but got tired of the bears chasing her so she cut that out in her 60's.

*

Songbird, Granny misplaced her glasses...Did you find them while rafting in Alberta by any chance?

*

Oh yes, Irene! Granny is certainly captivating. When we can find her.

*

You know Ken...that's the scary part. The family genes. My house is so colorful and bright. If I ever get temped to change my hair color...well, lets not go there.

*

I'm trying Rod. I'm trying. :D

*

Thanks Big Sis and NO you aren't terrible. You are just busy. We all are. THAT runs in the genes, too.

*

Oh Steve. Wait till I tell Granny you think she is cute. That IS what you were saying, right??? HA!

Thank you all VERY MUCH!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE!
