Fractured Quotes

Spring has actually sprung in our neck of the woods. Nothing more than a few minor patches of snow remain. And in the course of just two days, our lake went from a frozen grey-white mass to a gently-lapping, joyously-waving basin of brilliant blue beauty. Grass has begun turning perceptibly green and yesterday, a few clumps of pretty, purple crocus flowers appeared outside our kitchen door.

Bye-bye winter. Don't let the spring door hit you on your way out!

The photos below, go back to a bit earlier in the year - when we still had the white stuff.  Before too long,  I should have actual spring pictures to show you - just like the rest of North America but for now, these will have to do.

I semi-regularly do a blog post with quotes which I enjoy putting together. This one is a bit different.

All of the quotes are from books and/or movies but most of them have been somewhat fractured to fit the images. I hope you enjoy my mis-quotes. And hopefully the photos also.



deer boy DeMille
All right, Mr. DoeMille, I'm ready for my close-up. (Sunset Boulevard)





moose be with you
May the Moose be with you. (Star Wars)





skitty in a sink corner
Nobody puts Skitty in a corner. (Dirty Dancing)

Here's looking at you, Red. (Casablanca)





combermere lookout best of climbs
It was the best of climbs. It was the worst of climbs. (A Tale of Two Cities)





Slitty and Zephyr brotherly love2
Or is that.. A Tail of Two Kitties?





laundry day
As God is my witness, I'll never do laundry again. (Gone With the Wind)






mourning dove at first sight
It was dove at first sight. (Catch-22)





hardened criminals Carpe diem
Carpe diem. Seize the day, boys. Make your lives eggstraordinary. (Dead Poets Society)





friendly guy frankly my deer
Frankly, my deer, I don't give a damn. (Gone With the Wind)





call me fishmail
Call me Fishmail. (Moby Dick)

Thanks for indulging me. More photos coming up soon.

It is a pleasure to see your photos, the first gives the impression that the animal knows you. They are really well!

I've heard it said that puns are the lowest form of humor and I tend to agree except when done well and in a proper context.

Bingo and bingo.

Good stuff, thanks!
