Fish Tail Tale part 2


 I asked Bob to reach up and pick this one for me, he did and ended up covered in a shower of yellow pollen, his hair was yellow with it... Anything to keep MadSnapper happy..


MadSnapper pondering:

Why do bath rugs move from their designated spot when we walk on them, turn all si-godling,  but when I try to move it with my foot to straighten it, it appears to be glued in place



Grocery items in the same cabinet, stored in the same spot, are now out of my reach. As little as 2 years ago, I could reach them, now I must find the grabber thingy or yell loudly for hubby who can no longer hear me…who knows what I will do when Bob can no longer reach said shelf...

and how will I get the pod thingy picked from way up in the tree? 



the label below this post has 6 post on this tree.

Your bath rug pondering made me smile- same problem here...I always have to bend over, grad a corner and pull it back in place..so weird! Cool flower!

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Sandra, got a solution for the cabinet reaching problem...lower the cabinets. OK, so that may not work, and right now I share a similar problem but makes me think that when (and if) we relocate, high cabinets should be avoided.

Miss Debbie said...

Pretty pods! Funny about the rug...and so true! I'm the "reacher" at work...don't know what they'll do when I retire. Guess they have a few more years to figure that out!!

Obviously you haven't read the small print on bathroom rug tags! Just saying!!

Best,

Cranberry Morning said...

You have such interesting foliage there! And of course those are fantastic photos. But the pondering bit made me laugh. I have OFTEN wondered the same thing. What's with that bathroom rug?? And if kids are using the bathroom, the rug seems to migrate even faster.

We have to do one day at a time now Sandra, face these things when they come. Had to laugh about Bob being covered in pollen, don't tell him.....lol

Poor Bob. Us ladies always seem to want something it seems. Asking hubbies to do something that causes a laugh or two.

Oh I am having a good laugh with poor Bob.

And that mat.

It is happening here too.

Chatty Crone said...

Okay when you get the answers to those two questions write them because those are two of my problems too!

TexWisGirl said...

you're like the labels on groceries: some shrinkage will occur :)

love the pods!

Rose said...

Beautiful!!! I so love these.

Ginny said...

This plant is just amazing, and your pictures are wild and sunny! I have really never seen anything like it. And in some way, I don't know why, it reminds me of an alien plant. And some of them open almost like clams. I just think SO many more names would suit this better than Fish Tail. I have still remained at 5'5", that was the word from the doctor's office yesterday. Yet everyone is seeming to get taller and bigger. The kitchen window ledges that I used to clean once a week for over 20 years...I cannot reach them now, so how could they say I am still the same height??

SweetMarie said...

Love these pods! The pics are so clear,it feels like I can touch them. Hubbys are here to take care of us. :) They need to feel needed. :)

Madi and Mom said...

MOL MOL MOL MS....TELL MR. BOB THANKS FOR REACHING FOR YOU.
OH DO I AGREE W YOU ABOUT THE BATHROOM RUGS. I DO NOT THINK I AM OBSESSIVE/COMPULSIVE BUT I HATE WHEN THE GET CROOKED.
HUGS c

Susannah said...

When the bathroom rug is out of whack...it just irritates me so. It is not me that does it....it must be hubby!...Not unusual! Pictures are bright and beautiful. Thank Bob for getting that down for you. I really appreciate it. Nice to see it up close!

photowannabe said...

I had to laugh at your talking about the bath mat.
It's like the little rug in front of our door. Why does it skitter in the first place but I have to pick it up and move it back? No amount of toe kicking will do it.
What amazing blossoms on the Fish Tail Palm.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

I really love the photos of the flowers on the pod. I only got to 5'2" as it is and don't like getting shorter. I have a very nice step stool that I use. Yes those darn bathroom rugs always do that!

Ann said...

well I'm awfully glad that Bob can still reach to pick these blossoms for you. They are pretty. You should have gotten a picture of his yellow hair...lol
If you figure out the question about the bath rug let me know, I'm curious about that one myself

Blackberry Lane said...

Awesome photos, Sandra. Same problem here with rugs. Rocky the cat is always "wrestling" with the run and then one of us old folks comes along and trips over it!

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

I thought it was just my cabinets which had grown taller.It can't be that I am shrinking.LOL

Cherrie said...

Lots of pollen, good thing he doesn't have bad allergies :)

Betsy Adams said...

Hi Sandra, Great up-close-and-personal views of the pods. Thanks to your yellow hubby for getting it down for you!!!!!

I laughed at your bathroom rug situation... Same thing happens HERE.... ha ha
Hugs,
Betsy

Deb said...

I've had that can't reach problem all my life...when your under 5 ft tall...everything is hard to reach...beautiful flowers....

George said...

I have the same problem with rugs and top shelves. Now what is it that we have in common over the past couple of years?

What Karen Sees said...

Very cool 'pod thingy.' Love the colors and light. Being 5'10" tall, I am usually the reacher rather than the reachee....hummm that that make any sense?

Betty Manousos said...

oh my word, how did i miss this post!

amazingly amazing captures of the pots!
you had me laughing at your talking about your bath rug. same problem happens here, too.

magscorner said...

Wow, can I relate to this post...all but that pretty pod thingy. That is amazing! I was just thinking that very same thing about the bathroom rug in the front bathroom today. And Gene can't hear me when I call and need him either. I guess we will just have to get us a step ladder. I would probably fall off that though and Gene would never know I was on the ground. lol Hugs

Dee said...

Love your pondering's...you could make a post out of all your thoughts and pondering's..:) The more I get to know you the more I think you have the perfect blog name :)
