What kinds of photos do you carry around?
May 26 | SUE MANNING

Posted on 05/26/2010 8:58:03 AM PDT by JoeProBono

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The next time someone reaches for photos and offers: "Let me show you some pictures of my little darlings," you might be surprised who's mugging for the camera.

According to a recent Associated Press-Petside.com poll, nearly half (45 percent) of all pet owners say they carry around photos of their pets.....

Other than my driver license photo, I do not carry photos in my wallet. But then, I don’t carry much of anything in my wallet.

The poster of this thread, of course, does not carry wallet photos.

Rather, he carries a 17” monitor driven by an advanced image search engine, with minimal keyboard interface.

(.....and a roll of duct tape for his mouth.)

The only photo I’ve ever carried in my wallet is on my drivers license. I have six kids and four grand kids.

I used to carry pictures of my kids all the time. But, every time my wife got mad at me, she’d confiscate the photos as punishment. So, I ain’t got nothin.

I really think this is a symptom of a serious cultural mental disorder.

ditto the DL.

I've always worked a job that endangered anything I carried (a hard lesson learned many years ago)

Re-married March 16 and now I have a few of me and my bride and a couple of my kids.

Retired in Feb and I have a couple of the g-kids now, too.

I are a geezer now.

Gay would be...

Your wife in a provocative pose.

I know a guy like that, and he never misses an opportunity to show it off after a few drinks. And after even more drinks, he’s hustling. Seriously gay.

Not necessary to carry pictures in a wallet anymore - that’s what cell phone pictures are for...same with watches, why wear a watch when your phone is right there with the time.

Lightening the wallet load helps lessen back problems.
No watch...less likely to get hung up on something to harm your arm.
Same theory as rings when you are working on machinery.

45% of folks would probably say that the only “being” that shows them unconditional love, is their pet. Of course, that is only because the pet cannot talk, and truly express their feelings...

“sir, you annoy me, but if licking your hand feeds me, so be it”.... “I’m not purring because I like you, I’m doing that as meditation so that I may continue to survive being cooped up in this stinky, overheated mobile home, being fed gawd knows what from a can imported from China..”

I’m using the word “gay”, in the terms of “lame”. You are retired ... aren’t you?

I carry around pictures of my favorite socks.

And my collection of fire hydrant photos.

They're a gas at parties.

“None if I am captured the enemy might get information.”

Interestingly, when I was in the IAF, we were forbidden to have anything of a personal nature with us for that reason (including family photos, etc).

"They're a gas at parties."

I like having gas at parties.

One of my favorite things is to stroll around the room, leaving "Silent-But-Deadly" calling cards in groups of two or three, so that people will start looking askance at one another.

My usual preparation involves a sack of White Castles, or a big plate of Serbian Cevapci with raw onion.

LOL!

When I worked at Dow Chemical, there was an engineer who delighted in leaving those "calling cards" in the elevators.

I quickly learned that if I saw Doug getting off of an elevator I was waiting for, taking the stairs wasn't such a bad idea.

This so funny. I made up a little photo album of our dogs’ pictures for my wife to carry in her purse. If anyone tries to inflict us with pictures of their ankle biters, we can retaliate with dog pictures.

I'm embarrassed by this, but for our Christmas card we wanted to mock all that is holy, so we had our cats on the card too.

And our cats are UGLY.

Let's wait until my bootleg copy of the Teenage Asian Midgets

It's stuck in customs, I'm arguing that it ain't contraband 'cause half the characters are animated.
