Banned

I am browsing at a stall selling all sorts of plants and flowers at our local farmers' market when a customer behind me greets the stall owner with a cheery, “Hullo Deb, nice to see you branching out.”

Bloggie friends – it really does pay to be as nosey as me but not as loud. Yes, I burst out laughing so loudly I think I am now banned from within a metre of the stall.

Charlie says: You are pulling my leg.


Nearly the weekend, bloggie friends!

Haha ..it was a funny comment when taken in the context of being told to a person selling plants and flowers!

Oh Charlie, you have the most lovely legs, dear one!

Jamie Burch said...

That's so funny! I would have laughed, too.

Thanks for the smiles!

Love that pic of Charlie. Such a cutie...:)

Tracy said...

hah! I bet they gave you a scowl...

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Are you banned just through the growing season or until next year's planting?

Summer Ross said...

Hey you can learn a lot by people watching or even listening.

ABBY said...

Oh we think a bit of humor is a good thing...and hello Handsome Charlie.

I'm shaking my head and smiling. Of course you laughed. How could you not. But just in case, next time wear a hat!

Mommy took Fenris to a Farmer's Market Saturday they had a water bowl for doggies, where they could stop for a drink.

Clarissa Draper said...

That's so punny! I love it when people are like that. Unfortunately, I don't hear many English jokes or puns here in Mexico.

KarenG said...

I always like it when someone gets one of my jokes. No one should be banned for laughing!

Cheri said...

Banned from the flower stall! That is a new one. But it was funny...heeheehee!

Enjoy your day, Mr. Charlie
Your wether look nice : )

Medeia Sharif said...

Sometimes I fear I'll be banned somewhere. I commit a faux pas now and then.

In that position Charlie is begging for his leg to be pulled. :)

happy coming weekend Charlie & Jenn

Madeleine said...

LOL! I know how you feel.
Bless Charlie :O)

Al said...

But I bet it was a delightful laugh!

Hannah and Lucy said...

You made mum laugh cos it's just the sort of thing she would have said! We laughed again when we noticed there was a small branch in Charlie's picture today.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Fuzzy Tales said...

I think I would have laughed out loud too. :-)

I hope they took your response with good humour!

Marg said...

Charlie you are too cute and your Mom is too funny. That really was funny. I doubt you will be banned. Have yourself a great day.

The Monkeys said...

We think the stall owner probably appreciated your sense of humour!

Talli Roland said...

Haha! I do love those moments when we overhear something funny. :)

Hi to Charlie! Hope he made it through the hot weather okay.

SAS....Sammy, Andy and Shelly said...

OK, that sounds like something our mama would do, too!!!!!!!

Cute pose of you, handsome Charlie....we love y'all.

KarenMcG said...

We'll laugh with you, Old Kitty!

Charlie is certainly oblivious, though.

The Chair Speaks said...

Our human would burst out laughing too. Wooo, Charlie, you are enjoying the warmth of the sun!

Travis Erwin said...

Branching out. I like it or I would if I didn't dislike all foliage.

the writing pad said...

Well done on twigging the branch line - You were quite right to laugh - it was v funny :-)
Even more nearly the weekend now! Enjoy the rest of your day, and thanks for the smiles

Lynda R Young said...

HAHHAHA so funny. A loud hearty laugh is good for the soul

Lydia K said...

I thought it was funny!

Au and Target said...

LOL, nice one.

Ann said...

Sounds perfectly logical to me!!! Nothing else you could do but laugh.

Stephen Tremp said...

I find myself comment on total strangers conversations. Sometimes it goes over well, other times not so much. But I entertain myself and that's what's important.

The Golden Eagle said...

I would have laughed, too--it's a funny thing to say in a farmers' market! :)

Manzanita said...

This post and Charlie's remark gave me a good chuckle. Thanks It's a day for chuckling.
Love and peace

notesfromnadir said...

That's funny.

I'm also happy to see another pic of Charlie out in the summer sunshine.

Margo Benson said...

That's so funny! Sounds like something I'd do.

Sweet paws, Charlie!

Ann Best said...

I just read your Jilted post. That made me laugh. Now this one brought even louder laughter. I would have gotten banned to! We could have strolled off together, laughing. How fun that would have been!!

Jen says "hello" right back!!! And we both hug Charlie. Jen LOVES cats too! Animals ARE wonderful. They don't worry about the future, they don't stress out about the past. They just live in the moment. Jen and I are now going to enjoy focusing on the moment. We're going to watch a murder mystery, my favorite genre. My turn to pick, I told her!!

Ellie Garratt said...

Hehe. I would have laughed too.

lupie said...

Hahahahahah!!!
This is what I call an honest reaction!

I hope they have lifted the ban!! You are just tooo adorable to be banned!

Hugs to Charlie!

Ann Dziemianowicz said...

But it was funny! :)

William Kendall said...

Make Charlie force them to let you back!
