Once in awhile I encounter an image online that simply makes me happy just looking at it. This picture is one of those moments.

Somehow or other, I don't know whether it's an age thing or just a human thing, but we seem to lose the ability to express that much joy. I am grateful for the reminder that it exists and am bound and determined that I will experience it again.

If your computers begin to vibrate or otherwise shake as if they've been exposed to an earthquake, don't worry, it's just me jumping up and down with joy and maybe rocking my world a bit.


  1. How sweet! Looks like he's found some joy!

  2. Fantastic picture.

  3. Slick,

    He does look like a happy little guy, doesn't he? It still makes me grin to look at it.

  4. Skinny,

    I found it at a place called Twisted Sifter. That little hamster is such a joy to look at that I had to share.

  5. Sherry:

    Sounds like you stop to smell the roses from time to time. :^)

  6. I know a little about this photo I will share with your readers....

    This little fellar wanted to attend the Miss Hamster World Nude contest held at the home of
    Jerry Gerbil. All the who's who in Hamsterville were going to be in attendance. The guest list included Hershey the apostle, a very famous hamster, Ben the benefactor, Allison who really is a gerbil mix, Billy of the Kennedy clan, and
    Darren of the Cosby series were all scheduled to be there.

    Alas, our little fellar did not have the funds to purchase a ticket, so he had to sneak in to the next door neighbors garden and climb up atop the tallest foliage he could find to get a front row peek at the Miss Nude Hamster talent contest held poolside....

    This photo was snapped by Jerry Gerbil's security team just before the police were called in...

    Lucky for our little fellar, the police did not arrive until after the talent portion was completed so our little fellar got to view the entire contest...As you can tell from his expression he really enjoyed the display of talents........

    PS....the police made the mistake of going on call with sirens blazing so little fellar was able to haul ass before they found the bush he was hiding in.......and they all lived happily everafter.......

  7. Great picture.. Made me smile too--thanks for sharing.

  8. Wow! That's a once-in-a-lifetime shot. The photographer must be ecstatic.

  9. Whit,

    I stop every chance I get. It's what makes life all worth it.


  10. TAB,

    Now that is an exceptionally creative backstory to the picture. I'm on a roll today. Pic to make me grin, your explanation to make me giggle.

  11. Bupu,

    Almost makes me want to get a hamster. Ummmm, on second thought, maybe not. LOL

  12. John,

    I don't know how he did it, I just know I LOVE that photograph.

  13. Ice,

    I am definitely rockin' on.
