    Some interesting Odd Balls. A smile giiveaway is a good idea, I know a few that it would help on their way.

      Overall, a smile is a pretty inexpensive and simple alternative to a snarl. Uses fewer muscles, too ๐Ÿ™‚

      These are true oddballs. Odd that we took the pictures, but in some way, they each have some kind of statement to make ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you!

    Neat photos, Marilyn. That poor nutcrackers’s nose. I’m trying to think of something you could glue on there.

      I didn’t even realize it was gone until I took the picture. Then I felt guilty. Poor nutcracker! What terrible accident befell him … and I missed it! Let me know if you think of something. He looks a little flat-faced ๐Ÿ™‚

        He looks a bit like the sphinx. I had a look at ours (we have a pair) and they have a wooden nose which looks like a checker cut into a quarter. They stand about two feet tall so if yours is shorter you could probably come up with something from the Dollar Store that would fit his face.

      Thanks Cee. I’ve actually started a folder for each month to collect different types of pictures and one is always “oddballs.”

    Looks like that Nutcracker cut off his nose to spite his face…

      Or … maybe another jealous nutcracker snuck up on him in the dark of night? No? Okay, probably he did it himself. His version of a nose job?
