Gherkin? Gherkin??

Who is St Rabbit Orbs?

And those are super contrails!

Gherkin is the kitty! I met her owner the other day when I took that picture. They were out for a walk and I called her over to get petted.

(I didn't see that they were together, per se...it's like here's a person, and there's a cat, and they're both on the same block.)

That's The Church of the Rabbit Orbs, just because.

;-)

My worthless brain read that as Time Travel which led said worthless brain to see the vapor trails as a crisscross which led said worthless brain to time travel back to this hideousity therefore a pox upon thee, sir, for not interpreting the prompt as wizards and electricity.

OBS said...

Aren't you concerned about what you and poor Gherkin were exposed to in all those nasty chemtrails!?

Alexia said...

I am so impressed that someone would call a cat Gherkin.

Hi there!

I love the angle you took on the travel theme! Way to get creative and look up :)

Your other shots are lovely too!

Why not Gherkin - we had a cat once called weasel.

Great vapour trails - I love wondering where they are all going! Though ours are definitely headed for North America! Unless they are going in the opposite direction,when its Europe!

Silly, the orbs will protect him from the chemtrails. Everything Thunder does is ringed about with fantasy... he need fear no conspiracy-theory threats.

Bob Scotney said...

Don't be conned by the chemtrail conspiracy.
Our vapour trails are probably the same ones seen by Gilly.

Don't let contrails give you the vapors, people!

Orb Girl #050.

Funny, Sirius, but I looked at Orb Girl's pic and read "OSU".

Of course, the colors are wrong, but this is what happens when you live in Columbus.

Oh yes! Love the jet trails!

Smut Clyde said...

I like contrails. They provide a comforting feeling that if the gravity machines were to suddenly fail and we started drifting up into space, there is a safety-net overhead to catch us.

Janet said...

those are awesome shots of contrails!!!

Why did that cat die on your foot?

fish said...

Next up: entrails!

I told her a joke, fish.

The big chemtrails make an Eye of Sauron.

Calf-tease! Laura is going to lose her mind!

The sky shots are gorgeous. I love the clouds in the third shot. *thinks of excuses to steal*

Um, that's weird.

Another Kiwi said...

I knew that there were gravity machines, of course. Someone looks after them, don't they?

Jennifer said...

Does your left foot get angry when your right foot tries to steal the spotlight? Personally, I think the left foot paid the cat to lie down on the right foot, which was overstepping its bounds.

ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© said...

Actually, the right foot is jealous of the left foot. It's the right foot that caused us to get orthotics. (Probably from how I tend to sit when using the computer...right foot resting at an angle on its outside edge.)

I read it as that too -- because I live in Corvallis, home of the other OSU.

I often lie on the grass and stare up at the contrails in the sky. And I wonder where everyone's going as my brain calculates how many planes, how many people on each plane, and how many stories are skipping through the atmosphere above me.

What an amazing time to be alive!
