It's Willy Nilly Friday Again!

Synonyms of "willy nilly" include haphazardly, at random, randomly, and in no apparent order.  So here are five random images, some with linkups and some without.

1. Do you remember Yogi Bear? Here he is near Luray, Virginia.

2. "Long Shadow" for Black and White Weekend.

3. I don't eat at this place but my spouse does. Note the reflection of the sky. I was attracted to the bright colors (including orange).

4. Here's poor Flash at the veterinary office today. He doesn't like going there.  I took him there for his poor appetite and gas and the vet prescribed metronidazole. I imagine he'll feel better in a couple of days.

5. When I was cleaning out a few files, I happened across this certificate from 1997. It shows I've been coding web pages for over 20 years.


  1. ...doesn't everyone remember Yogi Bear? I can't remember the last time I ate at McDonalds.

  2. A fascinating collection! Poor Flash really doesn't look happy - hope he feels better very soon.

  3. Our dog is always a lot happier leaving the vets office than going in! Hope Flash is feeling better soon.
    Yogi Bear! Love him!
    Have a great week-end!

  4. My dog used to start shaking as soon as we turned into the vets drive

  5. I loved watching Yogi Bear cartoons when I was young. Hope Flash feels better soon.

  6. Pets never like the vet. Though some vets have animals in their offices to walk around and offer reassurance.

    1. This vet has cats. Flash is not impressed.

  7. A nice collection of photos. No McDonalds for me either. Yogi is smarter than the average bear, and his sidekick Boo-Boo. Haven't seen them in decades by I guess their memory was burnt in to my mind. :)
    Flash has the "I'm not happy here look." They didn't tell me they were coming here.

  8. Poor Flash - hope he feels better soon.

    All the best Jan

  9. If anybody remembers Yogi Bear it would be me. That was my favorite cartoon from back in the day.

  10. I loved Yogi Bear! Hope your doggy feels better soon.

  11. Yogi was one of my favorites! I do hope that your pup is better soon. Great images.

  12. The only thing I will eat at McDonald's are the breakfast biscuits ... so good! You probably don't use a pet carrier to take Flash to the vet ... as soon as our cats see the carrier come out, they tuck their tails and hide!

  13. I loved yogi! There's a campground near here with yogi...I've never stayed but have seen it a few times! I hope Flash is doing better..sweet boy! I do like McDonald's once in a while...cool shot! Thanks for linking Linda!

  14. I sure do remember Yogi Bear, there's a Jellystone Park Campground around here somewhere.
