Jurassic Wal-Mart


Bob went with me to Wal-Mart at 5 AM Sunday because he needed Pool chemicals that are to heavy for me to pick up. I patiently led him to the  Windshield  Washer Fluid, The Pool Chemicals, The lawn mower spark plugs and last but not least the Windshield wiper blade for my Kia.



He impatiently waited at the end of the aisle while I madly snapped the 4 inch Jurassic Park figures.  He actually shook his head in amazement when he walked down to where I was and saw the object of my camera lens.


NOTE: When we entered the store, I said you go get your items and I will get the canned air I need and come meet you in automotive. He said no, I need you to read the tiny print for me. (He never remembers his reading glasses)

The good news is.... I would have missed Jurassic if I had not followed him to automotive.. and YOU would have missed this POST...

A blessing in disguise that Bob doesn't wear his reading glasses in the shops. Love the little figure. You also get up early to do things in town? (Obviously like us, to miss the crowds) We're off at 4am on Saturday 1 August to collect MIL and Rina's pension again. Have a great day, my friend. Jo

Great little figures, nice!

I hate when Wade goes shopping with me. I'm glad Bob went with you though because I like your Jurassic subjects. They look almost real.

The Pres is not a good shopping partner at all so you are lucky! Love the new world you discovered!...:)JP

I'm with you- if I have to go to Wally World- 5 am is a perfect time to go. I love your dino captures!

I don't know what to say other than if you need canned air, I can send you some!!

Best,

The fun of shopping with a short sighted male! Pays off sometimes. They look bigger than 4 inches.

Hello Sandra, shopping with you is a Jurassic adventure. Thanks for sharing the dinos. I would prefer going to Walmart at 5am too, but hubby is still sleeping. Have a happy Monday and new week ahead!

Your photos actually look life-like!

Morning Sandra

oh you are too funny. You did do a great job taking and altering the Jurassic Monster. For a second when I looked. I thought don't tell me another creature in Sandra.s back yard. Then I proceeded to read what you wrote.
I can just see Bobs face and his thoughts when you tell him to go on get what he wants. My hubby too has a fit when I get my camera out in store. I now tell him. Go over to what you want to get. I will stay here in this department. He said what do you want in a Canadian Tire to take a picture of. I say. You never know. Oh Sandra your a hoot. You make things so life-like as Mildred commented.

Canned air?!
Well, interesting finds on your way, anyway! :)

My grandson in Ohio would love these photos!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Those are really cute figurines, I bet they sell a lot of them. I love when Mark forgets his reading glasses and he puts my girly ones on when we go out to eat....LOL!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

I like to go to WalMart late at night when there are fewer people (and screaming kids) there. I haven't seen these critters there...you never know what is lurking on those shelves! lol!

Dory and the Mama said...

I am so glad Bob forgot his glasses!! What wonderful dinosaurs...I see a trip to Walmart in my future too!!

Felicia said...

Things just have a way of working out and you took some great prehistoric animals there Sandra. Now all you need to do is make a stop-motion movie with them ;)

TexWisGirl said...

you're goofy but we like you. :)

Rose said...

That will teach Bob to forget his reading glasses! LOL

These actually have a real look to them...or else to my imagination.

Linda said...

I am always slightly in awe of your adventures so EARLY in the morning!! I think of you often in what I consider the middle of the night! I think - Sandra and Bob are already UP and have been for quite some time!!

SweetMarie said...

these things have a lot of great details! while my dad was visiting he, hubby and son went to see the latest Jurassic movie. they enjoyed it! I'm not really fond of that stuff, it would give me nightmares. lol
I'm starting to catch up today! no new laptop yet, still looking for a deal!

Maggie and Pooh said...

Love it! You are such a good photographer they almost look real. Hugs

pattisjarrett said...

That sounds like our trips to Lowes--but not so early! Maybe it would be more entertaining if I took my camera along!
