Why I Keep Paco Handy

Paco, my handy little point and shoot camera, goes everywhere with me.  If the kahuna doesn’t feel like going for a walk, I’ll squeeze Paco into whatever bag I’m carrying at the moment.  It’s nice to have a camera when the whim strikes to photograph something [as my camera phone is no good… whatsoever].  But there’s only been a handful of times that I’ve been reached for Paco so fast that my cat-like reflexes catch me off guard.  Speaking of cats…

A few months back Denise at GeekGirl415 made an observation about the little stick families people put on the back of their SUVs.  And how she would find it funny if someone actually put these on with several cat stick figures as well.  I thought this to be hilarious.  And then I saw it.

Not long after reading Denise’s post, I happened upon a white SUV with these stickies, only it wasn’t your average family of human-like stick figures.  Instead there was adult lady sticky and beside her were four cats and two dogs.  I laughed.  I’m sorry.  And I didn’t even think about picking up the camera.  I know that many people think of their pets as their children but I couldn’t help but get a giggle out of it.  I saw the SUV a second time on the way to work.  Again, I laughed – and Paco didn’t make it to the party.

This morning, I spied with my little eye that white SUV.

And tailed her.

So did Paco.


[Crazy] Cat Lady

Yes, I added the disguise.  No one needs to know who she is.  But she knows who she is.

And knowing is half the battle.

katie o. - oh my god! that is awesome. And I’m afraid I know someone who needs those cat stickers too. EEK.

Amy - That is awesome! I hate to admit it, but I’d rather see this than stickers of six or more children (which I have seen). Do people have those memorial stickers for relatives/friends who have died on their cars around where you are? Those are just beyond weird.
The “disguise” is genius, too!

Wendi @ Bon Appetit Hon - Even my inner crazy cat lady knows that it’s one thing to BE crazy cat lady and it’s another thing to ADMIT being crazy cat lady. Clearly, crazy cat lady doesn’t know this.

denise:) - OMG- I love it. I am so happy when I see others out there who have that same twisted sense of humor!

Unless, that is her real family…

And Amy hit upon the other car decals that make me go “hmm”- remembering people who died on their windows… are they looking for sympathy/attention or are they really selflessly honoring a loved one?
