Katie said...

Okay.... that was very odd. and very funny. :)

Tina M. Russo said...

I live for odd. Have a lovely weekend Katie.

Ruth Logan Herne said...

ROF, LOL!!!!

I think I prefer myself this way.

What a hoot!!!!!!!

Tina, thanks for a wonderful weekend edition.

As always.

Bless you for all you do.

And I'm going to tell you all that my husband's a hero, yet again.

When I got home from work yesterday (pre-last night's rodeo fun)...

Dave and my little crew had rounded up 5 baby Mallards from a just-hatched nest. Mama and Papa were nowhere to be found. Still aren't. My guess is they became coyote food or fox food. Both are prevalent in our woods and fence rows.

So now we have ducklings in the garage pen that recently housed baby chicks...

Tiny black and ivory ducklings.

The joys of country living!

Duck l'orange, anyone?


Camy Tang said...

OMG those pics are hilarious!!!! I would be tempted to say you have too much time on your hands, Teena.

Julie Lessman said...

Okay, I was up late last night (putting the finishing touches on book 1 of the next series that I JUST finished YESTERDAY--THANK YOU, GOD!!!!) and a little blurry, so I don't know if it's the pictures or me, but I may be with Ruthy on this -- I think I may actually look better as a Vulcan that I do this morning ... WHAT A HOOT, TINA!!!!

But, uh ... I may also have to agree with Camy ... you either have a wee bit too much time in your galaxy, or you DO NOT sleep!!

Either way ... you are -- in ANY galaxy -- THE BEST!


Ayrian Stone said...

Tina--I have never been so creative outside of writing. Thanks for the fun pics and contest updates! Looks like Seekers are doing great!

Julie--You're really starting another series? Sweet! When do we get to find out about the setting for that one? When's the first one going to be published? You know I'll be looking! :)

Ayrian Stone said...

Ruth--Baby ducks? My kids would love to visit yours! They're going stir crazy over here. No yard. Just an hour a day when I can get them out. So glad this summer will be with grass and wide-open spaces!

Rose said...


You did it again...made basic information so much more enjoyable to read.

The pictures are great!


Tina M. Russo said...

I prefer to think that I manage my time well. This week I work seven days, plus overtime. My next day off is the 20th. There are definite advantages to being A.D.D.

Melanie Dickerson said...

Tina, you made me laugh! I'm not a Star Trek fan, but it didn't matter, this was so funny.

Jeannie Campbell said...

wow...awesome photoshop work. tina, you are one creative chick. i love the weekend editions. then i can cyberstalk all the free book giveaways (and i will continnue to do so until i get all three of julie's books...heads up, jules). :) i'm poor with no job right now, and that's the only way i can justify getting new books. ha!

Tina M. Russo said...

Jeannie,that would be work.

I am all about short cuts.

I did it with the little old Star Trek converter. You too can be a Trekkie!!

Tina M. Russo said...

Thank you, Melly dear. Wonderful to see you!! Have a great weekend.

Janet Dean said...

Tina, loved the Seekers in StarTrek mode. LOL great fun!


Glynna Kaye said...

What a hoot, Tina! You're amazing. You made my day!

Pam Hillman said...

lol - Too funny! I'll never forget when Tina elfed herself. That was hilarious!

Missy Tippens said...

OMGosh! I'm not even supposed to be online. I'm supposed to be taking advantage of a rare full day to write in a quiet house.

But instead I had to take a peek at Tina's post. And oh mylanta, as Ruthy would say, I just scared the dog with my gasping and wheezing laughter. :)

Too funny!!

Tina M. Russo said...

You're a cute little Vulcan, Missy.

sherrinda said...

Okay, I have to know how long did you take you to do this post with all the morphed photos! Seriously!!!! Amazing!!!

Vince said...

Hi Tina:

Is this from an episode where all the men disappeared? Seriously, do you think someday you can show photos of the significant others? Keep up the great work.


Tina M. Russo said...

Thanks, Sherrinda. I start on the W.E edition the week before and let it percolate until I feel my true creative self is coming through. The goal is to make you guys crazy with anticipation of what insane thing I will do next. Then I take my medicine and go back to the arts and crafts room.

Tina M. Russo said...

"Is this from an episode where all the men disappeared? Seriously, do you think someday you can show photos of the significant others?"

Ha,ha! I can't speak for the other Seekers, but I have a strict rule about keeping my personal life and my writing life in two different galaxies, Vince.

Sandra Leesmith said...

Tina, You are toooo funny. I too keep significant others in another galaxy, but had to show him this post. He's a startrek fan and he howled. Loved it.

Thanks again for all the info. I'm heading to the store after church.

Jessica said...

LOL! Those faces are truly, truly scary! Ha!

Congrats to all the contest finalists!

Leigh said...

Tina, you are a riot! I've been running crazy all weekend and just got a chance to hope online. So nice to end the weekend with a good laugh! :-)

Audra Harders said...

What a hoot, Tina!! Thanks for the tremendous laugh to kick off the new week : )

You are truly awesome, girl : )

Cheryl Wyatt said...

This is hysterically funny!!!!!!

Tina...where do you come up with this stuff.
