Nothing About Donuts

On Sunday my great uncle died. I dont think I ever met him. My cousin and brother visited him in the hospital recently, but I was sleeping.(stupid excuse I know, but thats what happened.) We all went to the funeral. I've been to more funerals then I can count back in America, but this was my first Israeli one. Its a lot cooler, cuz the body isn't hidden in a box but covered with a talis and you can actually see the form lying there. We all helped shovel on dirt. I didn't take any pictures during the funeral, but I really wanted to. I didn't want to get all my relatives nervous. Its not fun when you're burying a loved one and theres someone snapping pics a whole time. I think my whole camera habit is slightly out of hand. Theres no reason to feel the need to snap pics, I should be able to remember things without having to refer to pictures.
Today I took pics of the bear world peace exhibit.


Its got a bear painted with themes from each country to promote peace. (Dont ask me howit promotes peace, cuz I have no idea. Its probably something to do with bears being friendly warm and cuddly creatures, who dont have big claws and sharp teeth.)



This is the United states bear.




The one with the kids in front is the Israel bear.


I love the Moldova bear. Its only claim to fame is that nobody has heard of Moldova.


Today we also raced some childs plastic see-saw down some hills. Lots of fun, and nobody got too badly hurt. Then we installed it in our yard as a lawn ornament. (and for the occasional see-sawing.)
Tonight is a close friends wedding, and I'm late and not even caring.

(i'm in a mood, sorry) Thank g0d he didn't take pix of the meet, I looked like crud (and felt like it too) and would have brought out my shot gun. At least you didn't steal any money from me.

Calvin and Hobbes said...

Calvin and Hobbes said...

doh. Sorry. I logged in 1/2 way thru writing that...

anyhoos, I made him watch my wallet when i went with my friend to get a taxi, remember? I had quite a ridiculous amount of money in there...1900 shek...19 100 shekel bills. NOT funny. But I don't have that many left anymore...between paying rent and going grocery shopping, I used a lot of it already.
Anyhoos-typical about the Crocs, can't imagine you wearing real shoes. That's just too weird for my brain to handle. Thanks for backing me up, SAF :) I wouldn't shoot doodle, tho...he's too nice for me to kill him, even if he takes a picture of a meet.

doodlehead said...

oongesetzed said...

doodlehead said...

Calvin and Hobbes said...

ok, i agree, it's not a real country

oongesetzed said...

well i always respected calvin as being the smartest 5 year old on this planet so i guess we'll just have to surrender and become the 51st state.

Calvin and Hobbes said...

first of all, calvin's 6, not 5.
and second of all, i'm a proud american citizen living in Canada. Actually, now I'm in Israel, so it really doesn't matter. And thinking of that makes me think that I haven't seen my passport since I got back...I wonder where it went...

Calvin and Hobbes said...

I saw the corner of the canada bear. typical. it's such a boring flag.
