You Can't Fool Me, Lady...

Uploaded: March 07, 2010


I know you've got nuts over there. I can SMELL them. I can almost HEAR the sound they make when my teeth bite into them. I can almost TASTE that wholesome, nutty goodness.

Now give me a nut before someone gets hurt.

frank w. degenhardt March 09, 2010

Tess- YOu got me laughing so hard with this one. First of all the expression on its face and then that hillarious description of what hes thinking. What a hoot. So comical and yet your camera work is nothing short of high quality. Love its colors and features and the way it seems as if he popped out from behind that log to face off with you.
Fabulous work my friend.
Have a great day. #8443421
