Knitting, spinning, pets, food and other thoughts

You just never know …


what you’ll see at Ted Drewes Frozen Custard on a Saturday! Usually it’s limos and wedding parties, but today they were shooting a commercial for a local bank. The nice young man who got stuck directing traffic in the parking lot said they’d been shooting for a good chunk of the day, and he had a sunburned nose to prove it. It was well up in the 90’s and muggy—it’s hard to imagine standing around all day on an asphalt parking lot, but there they were. If you’ve ever watched TV in St. Louis, you may recognize the tall guy in the suit, as he’s been doing commercials here for quite a while, usually slightly off-beat and funny.  They did one take with him and the gal in green, then brought her the little box she’s standing on and did it again – he’s quite tall 😉

I spotted the little frog the other day and realized he hadn’t absorbed all of his tadpole tail yet.

  1. You and your close-up lens. Show off;-D I love those commercials. His name is Tom something and he is funny in a dry humor way. I have always liked him. Did you get your custard?

  2. These were taken with my older Cyber-shot, which is quite handy to drop into my knitting bag. The new camera isn’t quite as portable 😉

  3. Love the little frog shot. I’ve been seeing quite a few tiny toads in the garden. They look like small clods of dirt–until they jump!
