Double Take














Every Easter we visit a major car show held in Forest Park. There's always a plethora of people who bring along their dogs...every breed, size, and shape imaginable are represented.

This gentleman, however, outdid himself. His two beautiful Dobermans are seated in the "bicycle". When he pushes the cart, the legs go around on the pedals while the paws remain firmly attached to the handlebars. It is truly a sight to behold as evidenced by all the picture-taking you see in this photo.

Of course the pups aren't really peddling. The "legs" and front "paws" are made of wood and painted exactly the same shade and markings as the dogs, who are actually sitting politely inside the cart. But the optical illusion of two bicycling Dobermans is hysterical.

 Has anything ever made you stop and look twice?

That looks too cute! I'm sure there has been something to make me stop and look, but I just can't think of anything right at this moment.

Forty years ago there was a man who walked through a neighborhood shopping district with his shaggy black dog that walked on its hind legs pushing a little cart and holding a pipe between its teeth. It was the happiest dog.

Very clever! I would have been fooled by that optical illusion.

Your picture made me do a double take, too! That's so funny.

How funny.
About 40 years ago I was crossing the street on a summer day on my way to my office building in Western Massachusetts. I stopped in my tracks when I saw a totally naked young woman hugging a stuffed monkey and skipping along the hot sidewalk. Two burly cops with smiles on their faces were headed in her direction; I'm guessing to arrest her.
Just about everyone in my office witnessed the event, and we didn't get much work done that day because we all were talking about what we saw.

Makes me think of that old song..."but you'll look sweet upon the seat of a bicycle built for two." Clever!
