Bad hair day!

Interesting cactus, fascinating name though......

A most appropriate name! The effect is far from serious, though!

This reminded me of one of those 'Gonks' we used to put on the end of our pencils, in the 70's!! Showing my age now. A great photo :))

What were the hecklers called? One had a bald head with white hair sticking up?

Good gracious Hywel!......its a bit cheeky. :0))

Yes , he is like that one of the hecklers , Pam .
I can't remember the Animal , Mel .
I knew that he reminded me of one of them .
With all these cacti there can't be much room for you and Bella , Hywel .

I'm just wondering what the old mexican lady looks like?
Does she have a sombrero. :0)

20 Oct, 2013

 

She is short, round, and hairy ... and in summer has a ring of pink flowers around the top ... which didn't appear this year :o(

The hecklers were Statler and Waldorf. Animal played the drums. (I must get out more...)

They could be screened again , for us oldies , couldn't they ?

You really need a shave Hywel, no good passing yourself off as a Cacti LOL :o)))))))

20 Jul, 2014

 

:D lol !! Sometimes I don't shave for a few days, but this looks like it needs a hair cut as well :)
