Zen Monday: #109


Zen Monday has arrived! It's the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what I think the photo's about.

I look for a photo worth contemplating or, failing that, something odd or silly. And unless I absolutely must say something I stay out of the comments box to avoid influencing the discussion. 


There's no right or wrong. We're here to have fun. Let your imagination do its own interpretive dance.

Take a seat -- or two. Please.

Curbside seating

Sitting pretty.

Time To Recover.....

Clifford Beshers said...

Paula, that was my first thought as well. The lamp post added to the general effect, I thought.

Susan Campisi said...

Ready for take-off.

Mister Earl said...

With a nod to Susan C, "Goose to Maverick, Goose to Maverick: We're way off course!"

Great video, Paula.

Trish said...

lol, Paula, oh myyy! funny video!

I was going to go with something more banal...but now I've lost my train of thought!

Everything goes better with a mate, even when waiting for the trash heap.

Your blog is family-friendly so I'll just keep my thoughts to myself. ; )

“Phyllis knew that by leaving her best chairs in the street for the homeless to rest their weary feet would invite the ridicule and scorn of her neighbours, but ever since she fell in love with Frank, it didn’t seem to matter.”

Good find!

Petrea said...

Well, JJ, it's too late to be concerned about family viewers if people clicked on the links in the comments--which I clicked on and viewed with amazement. What's shocking is not Paula's link but Cliff's comment that it was the first thing that came to his mind as well. What do you people do on the web?

Ms M said...

His and Hers chairs that have seen "better days"...
(I can't think of anything to top Paula's video....)

Greg Sweet said...

I want my quarter back.

Clifford Beshers said...

That's a very distinctive video, one of my favorites of all time; supposedly it was done on spec to be a commercial for something. Did not air in the U.S.

I keep having the feeling these chairs are hiding from the cops down the street, like Charlie Chaplin hiding behind a tree. "Pull your shoulders in! Oh, why did you have to be overstuffed?!"

J.J. in L.A. said...

Cute video! Okay, here goes...

"Carl always did enjoy coming in the back door."

Greg Sweet said...

Every Rose Parade has its thorns?

Petrea said...

...and the hilarity ensues. I went to bed early last night. I can't take you people anywhere.

Trish said...

P---what do I do online? people share links, to which I THEN find stuff like this! ;-)

I still can't stop laughing...wish more intelligent stuff like this were on TV these days---ok, humping chairs might not make it past the censors, but the originality behind it would be refreshing!

Randy said...

Down in the front I can't see!

Petrea said...

I love how some posts continue to receive comments.

Trish, I hear you on originality.

Hello Randy, good one! Thanks for stopping by.

Nathalie said...

The video is what did it for me!
I'm still laughing !

I think you have to change their textile!
I love to restore old furnitures with modern and vivid colors textiles.

Petrea said...

I think you'd have a lot of work to do on these, Kostas.
