Hans and Franz

I took a break tonight to watch a riveting, high action, super exciting round of professional tennis.

Meet Hans and Franz, illegal alien hedgehogs from Germany smuggled in The Higher Power's luggage.

They take tennis very seriously:

 Hans lobs a sloppy serve to the ever quick Franz

 eat my ball, Herr Franz

 All of this competition for the love of the beautiful Daisy:



Yes, you are seeing a portion of my collection except for Daisy. No one keeps Daisy in the corner.

  1. WHERE did you get those? I will search the entirety of Germany looking for tennis-playing hedgehogs unless you tell me! AND NO ONE WANTS THAT.

  3. hoodyhoo, they were a gift, but I if I knew I and were to tell you, then I would have to kill you.

    Shannon, well yeah you can find other hedgehogs playing tennis on a stick BUT are they on the Pro circuit? I think not.

  4. I hold the key to what you desire in life - a set of those hedge hodges or the bracelet dies.

  5. Tufa Girl, you play hard ball. Perhaps I need to see some evidence that the bracelet exists....

  6. I will send you a photo with the day's newspaper. Isn't that how they do it in the movies?

    OK, a tad premature but seems like a trip to Central Texas equals an address in Germany.

  7. Tufa Girl, don't forget that in the movies the kidnappers also have to send proof of life. Maybe you need to send the wrist that was wearing the bracelet...?

  8. Hey Mom L, now wait a minute. Can't we come to a peaceable exchange without the removing of body parts?

  9. El Gaucho, thanks. I kept the boys in the house all winter in a house plants so I could enjoy them. They started knocking over stuff with bad serves so it was time for them to take their game outside.

  15. GWGT, they are cute but a little rowdy. I have them on my porch because I am a bit afraid they may rust.

    Lynn, LOL yep they are.

    b-a-g, Thelma and Louise were more the intellectual type.

    HolleyGarden, they are up front to greet visitors or run them off... however they are feeling.

    -E-, why thank you. Now throw some bigger words at us.

  16. LH (hanging head in shame) - I'm sorry. I watch too many crime shows!!!

  17. How can you detach just a wrist?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Mom L, that is not the problem, I like gore as much as the next person. The bracelet and wrist happens to be attached to The Higher Power.

    Stacy, voodoo may be required. I would not mind having a free floating hand... you could send it out and get a fresh diet coke without getting up out of your chair.

  19. Stacy, they do it on CSI and Bones! Told you I watch too many crime shows. And don't forget The Addams Family....

    LH, I'm so sorry! I would not dream of chopping up The Higher Power.

  20. Those are GREAT! Where did you find those??

  21. Lin, they were a gift from The Higher Power when she went to Germany. She wanted to bring back a gnome but in Germany, they hide the gnomes in winter.

    Or so the Germans said....

  22. Hedgehogs are one of my weaknesses. Heak, I'll bypass the ornaments, adopt daisy, and hire an instructor to give her tennis lessons!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I totally want those hedgehogs. I think this game has been a bad influence on me.

  24. Mymaracas, I love my hedgehogs. And yes, yard art keeps collecting in my yard. Good thing it is a big yard. Can you image my surprise if my yard one day is submitted.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Wow... if your own yard were submitted? Now that would be a hoot.
