Strangers on a plane...

Trunk show.
.
I'm not sure if you read that story on Drudge about the Southwest Airlines employee who found a box of human heads on a flight headed to Fort Worth. (Story here.) Ironically, I discovered the same thing in the trunk of my car this morning. While watching my morning TV shows I heard the shrill cries of what sounded like a wild-child-raised-by-wolves, coming from my garage... Shrieking and shrieking and shrieking until I was no longer able to hear the women on The View!
.
When I went out to find out what all the screaming was, I noticed the trunk of the car was open... I walked carefully towards the rear of the car to see what had happened. I had the garage door opener clipped to my t-shirt as usual - you never know when you're going to need it. I pressed the button to open the garage door hoping to distract whatever was in the trunk.  Suddenly I swiftly and silently jumped over the back of the car, turning in midair, steadily landing upon my feet, facing the car. I quickly took in the crime scene present before me in the trunk. These grizzly photos are what I saw. It turned out that it had been the shrieks of the wild gerbil which led me to the trunk of my car in the locked garage! Needless to say I was totally freaked out - but remained calm. In a blink of an eye, the wild gerbil disappeared without a sound.
.
"How Hitchcockian." I thought to myself.

I went back in the house to finish my programs.  I had a breakfast bar with a cup of coffee, wondering, what the hell was all that about?

  2. It's most likely a gay gerbil.

  6. Terry, do you fix or repair broken religious statues?

  7. Fr. I've done so in the past but don't do it now. I used to manage a religious goods store and made a little collection of heads from broken statues. I intended to make a diorama with a Mosque and muslims in the background, and then fill the forefront with heads dripping in blood - I intended to title it, "Islam, the Religion of Peace" I never got around to doing it however. I wasn't sure Muslims would pick up on the irony of it all.

    That said - I don't know anything about these heads in the photo... ;)

  11. Terry Nelson - all he ever wanted in life was to be a little bit a head of everyone else...

    There - that's better!

  12. Someone deleted their comment and so I never even got to see it - for some reason my comments are not automatically sent to me from Blogger anylonger. If I missed an insult I'm going to be hurt.

  13. Terry - that was me. Honestly. It was basically the same as my second comment, but with bad grammar. No need to lose your head over this...

    Get it? I said "lose your head", and there's this picture of decapitated heads in a box, and then...

    Never mind.

  15. Thanks larry - I feel better - and that was funny - lost my head. I so get it.

    Sara - The View is like a group blog of women celebrities who discuss things - anything. Their conversation is always irrational, emotional, and they all speak at once - without a shred of accountability for what they say. It's an interesting study of the feminine mystique which most of us find so impossible to comprehend. ;)

  16. SB: "which most of us men find so hard to comprehend."

    Kinda resembles one of my weekly section meetings... :)

  18. women--impossible to comprehend???

    Well--men have two heads...and I'm never really sure which one I'm speaking to ;)

  19. LOL! I adapted my line from Jack Nicholson's line in "As Good As It Gets" when a woman asks his character how he writes women so well, he replied, "I think of a man, and I take away reason and accountability." I was in a very Melvin Udall frame of mind last night.

  20. That's one of the best movies EVER.

  21. The gerbils (gay or not:<)!!LOL!) or "ground squirrels" are most discerning...better listen to these guys...better watch "Caddyshack":<)!
    We just found baby "ground squirrels" underneath the front step of our priory...and of course, someone wants to "exterminate" them (not ME!...and not anybody monastic here)...anyway...who cares?
    God speaks...do we listen?

  22. And, just for the sake of whatnot:
    this looks like our garage...bits of every kind of everything (heads included)...Sister Petra is a "Statue" restorer 'par excellence'...but sometimes you have to wonder what the heck went on in here?:<)!

    T-man--here's another idea for the heads. It's Miss Richfield 1981. I saw her last year in P-town wearing this EXACT dress. It was the fashion high-light of my vacation! She's since been on Cake Boss. Catch her there?
