Our Pez Display A.Q.

Well, today was supposed to be a day for another vintage makeover, but due to the events of the day, that post will have to wait!

As many of you must know by now, there was a 5.9 earthquake in Virginia.  It was felt as far North as MA.  I was at home when it hit us.  Strangest thing ever!  I thought it was really strong winds until I realized it wasn't windy outside!  Our house was shaking, I thought twice our TV set was going over and it lasted a full 30 seconds or more!  I ran outside, as did other neighbors and we all looked at each other and went "what the hell was that"?  LOLOL!  One finally said, I'm pretty sure that was an earthquake!  She was indeed correct.

Here is our Pez dispenser display:

Now let's look closer after the quake hit.  Yes, friends on the West coast, most people would put something sticky on the bottom of them, but what do we know on the East coast about earthquakes?  And go ahead, Cathy and John, laugh all you want!




It is strange, it only took out certain dispensers!  Shelf number 2 and 4 got hit the hardest.
Shelf four, an entire row was taken out!



 I'm pretty sure Woodstock took this opportunity to take out Kermit.


So, how was your day?

You're killing me here with laughter as I look at the rows of your Pez some dropping and some standing!!! One good thing I noticed is that Kermit looks like he enjoyed the ride.

I am glad though that all is OK in the areas where the earthquake struck and there were no injuries

Please tell me I'm not the only one that finds humor in these photos.

Well, um, yep, you are the only one finding this humorous! What would I do without you? LOL!

Ummmm, I think they are funny also...especially since there were no casualties among the PEZ!

Woody took our Kermit! I can't stop laughing at that one. OMG, that is too funny. (not the earthquake mind you, but the Pez stories)

I'm sorry, I do find a little humor, but I'm from Cali where that's pretty normal.

I'm so sorry about your pez, but glad none were hurt (and that you're all right).

I too admit to laughing as I read your post, but then, I'm from Cali also.

I make little strips that wrap around the feet of footed Pez. You can shake them violently for several seconds and they still stay standing. They each hold 9-13 and are 14.25 inches long. funnyinventor@hotmail.com
