Who can resist a dog in a cone? Especially a sleepy one.
Can you guess what started me thinking about the wonder of cones?

No offense, bird.
Actually it was yesterday's post on feathers.
Feathers reminded me of this.

Did you catch any of the Olympic badminton games? They used shuttlecocks with real feathers. Read more about them HERE.
If I had seen the games in person, refreshments might have been nice.

Hey! There's Robert Plant on tour back in 1977!
Here's another conehead that likes to tour around.

You hardly see a gnome without a suitcase anymore.
Did anyone Amélie? (Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amélie Poulain)
Gnomes seem to like Paris. (Maybe it's the coneheads.)

If you're ever in Paris, I suggest that you hop on a train and take a three and a half hour ride down to the Auvergne, our old stomping grounds, to see the wonders of Clermont. There are ancient volcano cones!

Cones in nature are amazing.

Have you ever tried it? I'd love to know how it tastes.
But some cones just aren't natural. Like Madonna's.
Which reminds me of this.

It's Cup or Cone, a collage by my friend Michelle at dadadreams.
There. Now you're abreast of the World of Cones!
What is your favorite cone? And which cones have I left out?

And enjoy this song from Honey Cone. It's sweet!
