Aloha!


No, Ocala is not a suburb of Honolulu. I found these delightful characters in a Pier 1 store and thought they might brighten the beginning of your weekend.

You are always welcome, of course, in Ocala!

Cool - suddenly I'm craving a fruity drink out of a coconut with a little umbrella!

Nicely done decoratives. They can sure give your weekend a bright start with their big bright smile.... Nice capture with really nice colors....

They are indeed brightening the beginning of my holiday! Have a wonderful weekend and "see" you

I don't know exactly what happened here, the comment posted itself before I clicked... The end of course is "two weeks"!

Hilda said...

Goodness, you really can find anything and everything at Pier 1! I'm not sure if I find those masks welcoming or scary though ;)

Have a wonderful weekend, Jacob!

Scary, but cute. If they were outside a doctor's office, I'd run.

All I could do when I saw this shot was laugh. Very good humor !

It worked. A great way to brighten my Saturday :-)

This is one of the funniest images I have seen around. Very good shot, great colors and composition.

James said...

Aloha. That reminds me, I used to go to Pier one all time but suddenly stoped about 20yrs ago. There's one down the street I think I'll check it out. Those welcome charactors are great.

Lois said...

What a great shot Jacob! I would not have been able to refrain from taking a picture of these two characters either.

Leif Hagen said...

Aloha Jacob and Lois Anne! After many years of marriage you HAVE started to look alike!

@ Ciel - Vaya con dios. Wait, that's Spanish. Oh, well, it works! Have a great time!!!

JM said...

How nice! :-)

Frank said...

In Ocala? They are wonderful and a great find so far from their homeland. (I do hope you gave at least one of them a new home with you guys? Both of them?)

Frank de Jol said...

Cool !!!

tapirgal said...

Your EG Tour Guide said...

How cool these are! This is the kind of decor I appreciate in someone else's home or in a place like Pier 1. ;-)

Jacob said...

I agree, EG - that's why we left them at Pier 1...actually, if I had a beach condo, I might put them up there...

Becky said...

Very tropical, and nice colours. I like this post!

It makes me smile :) I like Hawaii, not because I've been there but I like LILO & Stitch .. it is cute one you must like it.
