An Aiming Problem

Percy: That was some storm yesterday. Good thing it was a quick one.

Merci: Jan got home shortly after it went through and rushed us off on an early walk before the next one arrived. She took a photo of the sky on our way home.

Buddy: Jan made us walk in the middle of the road so she could get a good shot of the blackness framed between the trees. I can't wait to see how it turned out.

Percy:  I think she already downloaded it.  It should be easy to find.  She hasn't taken any other photos since Monday.

Merci:  Let's go see how it looks.

Percy:  I can't find it.  This is the only new picture I can find but that's the back of our house. 

Merci:  That can't be right.  She distinctly said she was taking a picture of the black sky framed by trees.  I don't see any sky at all.  Do you?

Buddy:  I remember we were about two blocks from home.  She used the zoom and held the camera up and pointed straight ahead.  How did she manage to -

Merci:  Never mind.  If we ask that question, she'll say it was our fault because one of us moved. 

Buddy:  She has said she can't see what she's photographing outdoors.  Do you suppose she's telling the truth?

Percy:  Do you think she has a  -

Merci:  Drinking problem?

Percy:  No, an aiming problem.

Buddy:  I'd say so.  She's probably feeling a bit embarrassed about missing the intended photo.  Do you think we should mention what a good job she did trimming the tree so we could see the house in this accidental shot?  What's so funny, Percy?

Percy:  I'm just wondering how Jan managed to miss the sky.  It's not like it's the size of a splinter.

Merci:  Not a word of this to Jan!  Agreed?

  3. Poor Jan. But that's okay, it's happened to the best of us!

  4. Yep...our Mama sometimes "thinks" she takes pictures of one thing and gets something else too.

  5. You have some lovely trees in your garden.

  6. I'm sorry, but that's too funny! Missing the sky!

  7. We won't tell Jan but do compliment how nice your yard looks since the trees are trimmed. ♥

  8. When I saw the title, I thought you meant a different kind of aiming problem -kind of like my Sammy peeing on me. Good to know it is only with photos.

  9. I am certain that ONE OF YOU distracted the photographer and the camera slipped out of the intended frame. Aren't you ashamed?

  10. Never mind. It is a nice photo of your house and the trees.

  11. Yep, the mom bean does that too sometimes. She thinks she's taking a picture of something and then it turns out be something else. We'll never understand beans!

  12. My Dad has an aiming problem sometimes, oops, nevermind!

  13. Hmm. We wonder how Jan missed that sky picture?

  14. BOL Jan n ends to lay down so she can't miss the sky

  15. We don't know about your sky, but you have a lovely yard. Purrs

  16. Sometimes the petcretary here takes pictures of her hand or silly who needs to see those?

    Glad you got a walk in, between those storms.


Thanks for coming by. We love to hear from you.
