Just an Observation.

I have been thinking something for a long time now. Then Ali casually mentioned it today in her post, and I'm like "oh, it's not just me". Now let me start by saying...I am a huge U2 fan. I can not count the number of times I have seen this band. I spent the better part of the 80's and 90's drooling over Bono. My love for him is eternal. I am all for him becoming...Pope, Nobel Prize winner, Czar, King, President, whatever! The one thing I will not stand for him becoming, is Robin Williams!!! What is up with this!?! When did this happen!?! How did Bono turn into Robin Williams? Can someone please explain this to me? I will be here waiting for an explanation...In the meantime, I will take my Bono in the 80's with a mullet, thank you very much!


  1. Oh how funny! I've always been a Bono fan too....but he's looking a little like Mork these days!
    Also, come back and find the hidden baby. Look for a BIG baby with toes in the main tree trunk, and then the outline of the face in the thin branches hanging down.
    By the way, I like your blog a lot. Want to exchange links?

  2. Yes, NW. Thank you for saying what we've all been thinking. What happened to the hottie who once sported that classic mullet while belting "Sunday, Bloody Sunday" as I swooned? Is it blasphemy what we're saying?


  3. Aye, I've been wondering at the resemblance for a long time now - and you've hit the nail right on the head.

    I just hope the Mork and Mindy fans don't have a Bono to pick with you!!! (Sorry, I couldn't resist that)

    Delighted you liked my cathedral spire picture. In reply to your generous comment - you don't need more practice. Believe me, all you need to do is carry a little camera with you wherever you go. It's amazing how many unusual sights you'll see and how many times you stop to photograph a familiar sight from a different angle.

    Try it one day - and let me know what you think.

    I only took up photography two years ago, when my wife (the love of my life) told me I'd be really good at it.....

    Keep smiling


  4. Forgot to say - I really like your new blog header!

  5. this probably happened when he started preaching at everyone

  6. shut UP! He does NOT look like Robin Williams! LALALALLAAALLLAAA!

    I was just thinking the other day, for no particular reason, just how much Bono rocks, on all levels. Love. Him.

  7. Please excuse Bossy while she goes to a surgeon to repair her splitting sides. Ah hahahahahahaha.

  8. OMG! Maybe they are twins separated at birth. Or have you ever seen them together, maybe Robin is Bono alter ego.

  9. Hmm. Maybe it's Robin trying to become Bono?

    And I totally love that mullet photo!

  10. Maybe he sat under the Joshua Tree a LITTLE too long...

    The best u2 song ever is Runnin to stand still...I use to cover that song all the time in my band days...actually NW..go to this link and you can here me singing a pretty bad version of it live with just me and my acoustic guitar...

    (Click on the Runnin to Stand still stream or download it to listen to it...)


    It is the second one on the page...(Under the bodeans cover)

    The Egel Nest

    in this picture...it's really hard to tell if it's robin or bono.

    (but, at the end of the day, i love me some bono...mmmm...bono...)

  12. This is kind of scaring me. For both of them!

  13. I never noticed! Say it isn't so!

  14. That never occurred to me, but Bono has taken on the physical characteristics of Robin Williams. Maybe Robin really is Mork and this is all part of an alien conspiracy. If Bono ever is seen wearing a red uniform with a silver emblem and says the words "Nano nano", it's time to run for the hills.

  15. Where did my hottie go? He can not fade into a Robin look alike..

  16. so funny!!!!!
    and i'm loving that second pic- it's at red rocks- near where i grew up!
