Random Five Friday

Excitement in Smalltownland this week as a Firetruck fell through a parking lot and into a basement of a previous building.   Two cranes arrived the following day to lift the truck out of the hole.  I heard that many people brought out lawn chairs to watch the spectacle. 

I wore what I thought was a simple, stylish t-shirt to work this week.  Then, a student asked me why I was wearing a , "gym shirt", to class.  

The opossum student tells me that the babies are thriving.  She also let me know that they curl their tails around her finger and hang upside down.  Sweet!  

The #2 track on my Spotify playlist and a current favorite this week.  

The Garden and Gun Good Dog Photo contest winners are here!  Go forth and have a look!  

Linking up with Tanya today.....

  15. I had never heard of Garden & GunDogs, but those are some nice-looking dogs! So funny about the fire truck, as long as nobody was hurt! The opossum babies I bet are wonderful for the student to have around! We used to know a family that rescued several different opossum babies and raised them. Too sweet!

  17. Wow that Fire truck incident was amazing. How funny people brought out lawn chairs to watch. Although I must admit I would have been there (camera in hand) to catch the spectacle. I hope you student shares photos of the baby opossums, that is so cute they hang off her finger.

  18. Sorry for the truck but it made for a cool shot.

  19. LOVE Spotify! Anything that'll play complete albums for free is OK in my book. I'd get my headphones and watch this evac of this truck. That's a strange look.

  20. Whoa! That had to be some surprise for the people in the vehicle! Question, I have not had music on my Journal in ages. Was it a big deal to get spotify on our blog?

  21. I am glad no one was injured in the fire truck incident. My sister is a teacher and some of the things her students say crack me up! You should all write books! Sounds like the girl with the opossums didn't have much luck selling them? Great looking dogs...all of them!

  22. Oh my gosh.. I can just imagine the crowd the fire truck incident would draw.

  23. Unusual sight of the truck - bet the driver got a shock and it is a wonder no-one below got hurt or killed.
    Cheeky kid at school saying that - I wonder what you said . . . . lol
    Those possums could take her finger off easily if they wanted to.

  24. All those lovely dogs ... great captures! I'll send the link to my dad - that will make his day :-)
    That's Incredible with the truck! And can't stop smiling to the t-shirt comment :)

  28. Goodness, glad no one was hurt. My daughter-in-law is a music teacher and she had put up a display of famous composers on the wall. One young man wanted to know why she had misspelled 'back', that she was a teacher, she should be able to spell such a simple word. She had put the word 'Bach' right next to a picture of Johann Sebastian' Bach'.

  29. I thought you were going to say that ... people pulled out lawn chairs from the basement :-)
    A rather surprising winner although maybe I didn't get the point of the competition, the photos are top quality and how to portray dogs. No doubt that has also helped the winner.
