    Thanks for the great laugh! Needed it! You rock, except for maybe the crotch shot!

  2. Rondina says:

    Yep. But let’s not forget that someone was rescued from an undertow in the ocean recently with one, so you’re all set for the beach.

  3. Elen G says:

    Note to self: Scratch selfie stick from list.

  4. Ella says:

    Hahah!Fun post!

  5. Sabina says:

    Hahahahaaaa!!! We have a group of gals (The Hippie Chicks) that gathers monthly for a little socializing and philanthropy. A group shot is mandatory before anyone leaves and our gracious hippie-sister hostess bought a selfie stick. It provides us lots of challenges, obscure photos and tons of laughs! Rock on Karen!

    First, I can’t have Oreos in the house. They ARE as addictive as cocaine (I’v never tried cocaine, but I KNOW Oreos). Second, glad to see someone take pictures that are as mine. And I didn’t need a selfie stick.

  7. Janice Mortimer says:

    Can you return it? I find people walking around with them quite amusing but not in a funny way….more of an I cant believe you are that desperate to take picture of yourself kind of way. You should get a go pro instead. I would like to see the world from your perspective. Gotta wonder what goes on in your thought process sometimes and that might give us more insight until you pass away and they can dissect your brain to study it. Fascinating specimen.

  8. Nancee says:

    Bless you! You gave me a good laugh…yup, that’s what I would have done with it too.

  9. Leslie Best says:

    Bahahahaha!!! So funny. Those things kill me!

  10. Mary Ann Evans says:

    You make me feel normal…Lots of Laughs,Lots of Love!

  11. brenda says:

    cat pic is truly the best

  12. Vicki says:

    Well, you know what they say…practice makes perfect!

  13. Stefani says:

    I just love the kitty one.

  14. Jan in Waterdown says:

    OK, nice shot of your bright orange boobs! Orange is my favourite colour, it’s just so happy. And in the pic with the sun overhead, do you have your finger shoved up yer nose? Kinda looks like it. Just sayin’. . .

  15. Mary W says:

    My favorite? The last of the four pic group. My sentiments about NOT getting a cup of coffee in AM. I think a selfie stick is a great idea since you need to take pictures of you doing stuff and Idris sometimes is unavailable.

  16. Debbie says:

    Can you return it?

  17. Heather says:

    Love the scowl in the 4 pictures together. Tooo funny.

  18. Melissa in NC says:

    You are crazy! Thanks for the laughs first thing this morning.
    Have a great weekend.

  19. Ruth says:


  20. Teddee Grace says:

    You are a nut! It’s 6 a.m. and I’m laughing so hard I’m crying. The cat shot is the best. Thanks!

  21. ronda says:

    the woman’s got skills!

  22. mayr says:

    I will be chortling all day long.

  23. j says:

    Morning Karen! I have a friend who has a drone. He can take pictures of his dogs running after the drone, sniffing drone when it lands. You could get one and get images of Cuddles from 100 feet up! or a Hummimgbird! Arial images of the front yard garden! Think of the possibilities! Maybe write the whole thimg off as a business expense. I’m intriged! You know we are all watching you-vicariously enjoying your adventures! Julia

  24. Lynne says:

    Oh Gawd, I just LOST IT laughing. You crack me up.

  25. Catherine Vosper says:

    Thank you for the entertainment, your charming self effacing humour is delightful, as are you!

  26. Kim says:

    OMG! Too funny Karen! What awesome lpics! Made my day. Have a wonderful weekend and keep snapping!

  27. Theresa says:

    I thought Betty got a hold of your iPhone

  28. Auntiepatch says:

    Too funny! Great laugh and now headed for bed!

  29. Milton says:

    So glad to know you have some imperfections. Even though you are totally awesome, its nice to see you’re not perfect. I don’t see how you do all the stuff you do, must have a staff of 100’s and you’re just the creative director, like Martha.

    • Edith says:

      I don’t see any imperfections at all. Not one. Everything about Karen is perfect. If you think the fotos are bad or she doesn’t know how to use a selfie stick, you are wrong. There is no other way of using a stick like that, and the results are as good as they get. It’s the stick, not Karen. Actually, I have never managed to make such wonderful fotos with my stick. Maybe, in a couple of years the sticks will improve so you can actually use them. But untill then: stay away from them!!! Waste of money!

      • Milton says:

        Now that you mention it, I don’t see why Karen didn’t make her own stick, after all it’s just a stick. Maybe use an old Swifter duster. I agree everything about Karen is perfect, but some of her stick photos could have used some improvements.

        • Annette, Wisconsin says:

          Milton, I don’t need better photo composition or focus. I love this and Karen can do all this in her sleep. BUT I SO agree about your Swifter duster comment. It’s a stick!! I can’t believe Karen actually bought something she could make or retrofit herself. What the…?

  30. IRS says:

    Selfie Stick. Noun: A stick used to beat the face and head of anyone in the habit of taking selfies. See also: Kim Kardashian.

    Get rid of that thing immediately!!!

  31. Sera says:

    I’m with everyone else – the cat shot is fantastic. I also like the toes in the grass and a couple of the others. I love them all as a series.
    It just makes me think. I saw this little photography exhibit at The Met in New York a couple of years ago. It was great becaus there were these strange collages of old photos – random candida that, put together, were something strange and fun. Will we have amazing, strange collections of photos the way we did in the past now that we have countless digital photos? Hmm. Some of the “bad” pictures are the most interesting. Especially in a collage.
    Anyway, I love it Karen.

  32. Danica says:

    So I wake up to feed the baby, he decides he doesn’t wanna wake up just yet, I have zero Oreo cookies to snack on, then I decide to read blogs.

    Hahaha your post made up for th fact that I’m up for no reason and i have no cookies. Thanks once again for the good humour read.

    • Karen says:

      I find it hard to believe you didn’t have any Oreos. I suspect you’re a pathological liar. Everybody has Oreos all the time. Maybe you should consider counselling. ~ karen!

  33. Amber says:

    Maybe try that “mirror” button in the phone so the screen shows you what youre taking a pucture of? OR…..keep doing what youre doing and posting the results. Yes, I like this idea much better. Tonights post; even more reason why we all love you so much!! :)

  34. Alita says:

    I love the one with the cat’s photobum! Verrry funny.

  35. Nancy Blue Moon says:

    You are crazy lady…good shot of Cleo’s butt though..

  36. brenda says:

    the camera flew off the selfie stick and you pressed with your toe – right

  37. brenda says:

    I love the toe shot best!

  38. Rebecca says:

    Hahaha I love this!

  39. Ishrath says:


  40. Stephanie Hobson says:

    That last one looks like you’re stuffed down into some giants huge legs. Perspective is the key. hahaha

  41. DanniS says:

    Cute pictures I needed that laugh. I see Fred flinstone painted his toes again :)

  42. Sue says:

    OMG, you are too funny!! Made me laugh out loud!

  43. Pati Gulat says:


  44. Debra says:

    So, I’m hanging out with my 15 year old son. I just laughed out loud a few times and he looked at me like I was crazy. I only had to explain I was laughin at the chicken lady…again. Seems everyone in my household hears my stories about the chicken lady. You are famous in my home! Love you Karen!

  45. Elise says:

    Bah-hahahahaha!!! That was AMAZING. :)

    • Karen says:

      Thanks Elise. Wait’ll you see how good I am with it by next week. I’ve already got around 1,000 photos of my arm looking really, really long. ~ karen!

  46. ruth says:

    Cat picture. The best.

  47. Carmen Greene says:


  48. Carol says:

    Thanks for the laugh just before bedtime, Karen. I really needed it.. :o)

  49. Debbie from Illinois says:

    That was my first guess!!! Lol!
