Walking (and chuckling)

 Like many of you, I really enjoy a walking around my neighborhood.
But lately I've seeing some very interesting things.
 Yes, this is a brass frog sitting on the fence.
(This little frog has been here all winter.)
I chuckle when ever I walk by it.

 A few doors down, there is this bunny sitting in the front yard.
I chuckle when I walk by it.

Turn the corner...this is what I see.
I chuckle when I walk by it!

Look closely...
I chuckle when I walk by it.

My biggest chuckle I saved for last...

I usually break out in a really loud snicker.

By now, I'm trying to hold in my laughter.
So turn the corner and head  for home.

I enjoy walking around my neighborhood.
Enjoying lots of chuckles, that's for sure.

"1 pound of fat is equivalent to 3,500 Calories. So to lose 1lb in weight you need to expend 3500 Calories more than you've consumed.

The calories expended (and therefore the weight lost) when walking depends on a number of factors - crucially your level of fitness, your weight and the distance walked.

A good rule of thumb is that a reasonably active person weighing 168 lbs (12 stones) walking at approximately 2 mph will consume just under 100 Calories per mile walked."

  1. Christine, I enjoyed the walk and laughing right along with you. I really like the last two. I want some of those for my yard. Have a great day. Jude

  2. I liked your walk. The kids in my block would never leave that frog on the fence or anything movable unmoved. It's a shame when you have to nail things down!

  3. That was really funny! What a great little reminder to people with dogs! Cute! :)

  4. Now I'm smiling too! We could have the best time together walking and laughing, tow of the best things you can do with a friend and for your health! Thanks for sharing your walk with us!

  5. Cute, cute! I love the last one!

  6. What a great walk.... loved seeing what you observed. Now we're chuckling too.

    Come by for a visit... got my giveaway up finally!

    So appreciated you being there even when I wasn't!


  7. I see so much green grass on your walk then look out my window and it is snowing. I am not chuckling. But then again, I am leaving for Florida on Sunday to visit my sister. Maybe it will be green in Venice.

  8. So I came over for a view
    After a comment from you
    The animals are really great
    A laugh or three came out of this mate
    Especailly the one with the mutt
    With nothing coming out his butt
    At least the cat will bury it
    Although probably still cause a fit
    Oh and giving facts too
    You trying to one up me are you..lol

  9. Oh Christine, I would be in the full out BELLY laugh by the time I got to the dog and the flower. That is so funny!!

    We are kindred souls, I think. I love to chuckle my way around the neighbhorhood too.

    I'm a give and take kind of gal, though. I'm pretty sure I give our neighbhors plenty to chuckle at too.

  10. Christine, you have such fun "critters" to enjoy on your morning walks!! I love things that make me smile!

  11. What fun things for you to look at while on your walks! :)

  12. I'm so impressed that you can chuckle and walk at the same time!!!! :) :) :)HaHaHa
    I'm so happy to see how much fun you have on your daily walks. :)
    Exercise is always easier when it's FUN!!! :)
    Have a great weekend. :) :) :)

  13. Those little dogs made me laugh and that little frog looks adorable peeking through the fence! It looks like a fun walk. Too bad we don't burn more calories when we walk.

  14. So cute. The facts on burning up fat are a bit depressing though. I'd better get cracking on the treadmill!

  15. This is fun and I will be watching my neighborhood in a different way. Oh the facts at the end remind me of my post listing the calories burned while cleaning house.
    Thanks for the visit this morning to my blog.

    Now I need to put my tennis shoes on and go for a walk/jog.

  16. Thanks for the smiles you shared with me today. And, thanks for the info on calorie usage. I know now I have to walk more than I do.

  17. So I came back by
    To see if you had a new post for me to eye
    But not a one
    Now you've made me go undone
    But at least I got to laugh at the mutt once more
    At least the plastic kind can't poop on the floor

  18. I too am a garden art lover when I'm out and about. Not actively searching but love to look at it when I'm out and about.

    Have a great week.
