Today's Wonder of the World is...Feet!
I don't usually think much about feet, but today feet kept popping up all over!
First, my almost 16 year old son Ben was hounding me to get him some sandals. He wears size 14. Yes, size 14. The boy has got some gi-normous feet.
They do not sell many shoes that big, unless you're at a shopping mall for clowns.
We have no clown malls near us.
Just kidding, Ben. You know you love me.
Besides, as I always say, big feet make for a strong foundation.
Anywho, after I scoured the internet for enormous sandals, I was going through some pictures from my beach trip with Sarah and her friends and saw this.
Duck feet have always fascinated me.
Pretty soon I couldn't get feet off my mind.
You know the problem...
Except it wasn't my own feet I was thinking about. It was animal feet!
Sometimes the feet were happy...
And sometimes they were wearing blue socks.
This penguin looks dashing, I think. He's wearing socks because his poor little tootsies are calloused from too much walking and not enough swimming. Apparently penguins in captivity get lazy, and so now this little dude at the International Antarctic Centre in Christchurch, New Zealand, gets a rigorous treatment regime, including saltwater foot baths, ointment applications, and fashion footwear design. Do they take humans? Sounds nice, penguin!
I'm also crazy about polar bear feet.
They remind me of this.
And I like horse feet.
But not this kind. My goodness.
And kitty cat feet!
Aren't those pink feet precious?
And of course I can't forget Tanner the Slobber Dog, and his cute puppy toes from a couple years back.
Like all baby toes, they grow!
Boy, those are big feet.
Wonder if they have clown shoes for dogs?
Thanks, flickr! Who cares about the shoes!
Tanner, come here boy! Guess what you're doing next Halloween?
Y'all have a Wonder-full Thursday!
And thanks to my flickr pals for their public photos: Tollen, loco sinned, moggierocket, peke cheeks, shhexycorin, psrman, and ukumari.
