A life by chocolate entails finding sweetness in the light and dark. Moreso, it's about addiction to cocoa. An insatiable sweet tooth doesn't hurt. Well, not until the yucky tartar buildup and stuff. To the point, I strive to entertain with topics such as the utter hilarity and cuteness of children; the challenges of dating, my related rationale for celibacy; and chocolate as a precious remedy for it all. Thanks for sampling Life by Chocolate. I hope you keep coming back for more.

I like the Mother's Day Hat and the lizard.

Happy New Year!

You know I love the horse.

My faves are Back to School, Turkey, and Santa. I think maybe it's TurkeySanta I love best.

Hehehehe

I find the Mother's Day hat most intriguing. I'd love to know which human mother wears a hat like that. I would gladly serve her iced tea in a butler's costume.

I agree that the Mother's Day hat is the clear winner. Cute photo of you and the lizard. Happy New Year!

I am going along with the Mother's day horse as well. Does the horse get dressed up for the New Year?

That post was full of horse play.

I love these horse photos Robyn haha, all of these are amazing, love your town!

Tami said...

Our town had bears similar to your horses. I love how they were dressed up.

Turkey horse. No turkeys or horses were harmed in making that shot.
Have an awesome New Year's, Robyn!
And your book is wonderful. So glad I ordered it.

I've enjoyed seeing the various holiday and seasonal horse costumes. The turkey suit had me laughing out loud.

Hope you and your family have a Happy New Year.

Thanks, everyone. I'm sorry - I had problems formatting this. (It took hours.) Somehow, the Back to School one didn't show up, and I can't believe I forgot the horse bunny! Oh well, I do agree the Mother's Day bonnet donning mascot is our clear winner.

Alex, I'm so glad. Thank you very much.

Love for a great New Year's.

Heather Smith said...

Happy new years! We have a cow here in town that changes with some seasons, but not as fun as your horse!

Pat Hatt said...

Happy New Years and that horse has a wardrobe that would make many a human jealous

Vidya Sury said...

I love that horse! I am in love with the turkey horse, although he looks handsome in all his fancy dress.

Happy 2013 to you, too, Robyn!

Teri Vonn said...

Our horse lives on a busy street. I'm surprised drivers manage to avoid accidents as they zoom past the parade of changing outfits.
Cute posts.

Hard to pick the best one. I'm leaning toward the Mother's day one. If I leaned too hard would the horse support me?

Kal said...

Now there is a town in desperate need of a bowling alley.

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

Kal, you are so good. I'm still laughing. Too bad it's too late to highlight that comment in my year's best. But it does need to follow these pictures.

Bill, it's pretty sturdy and reliable. I'd say "yes."

Happy New Year, all.
Be safe.
xoRobyn

Haunted Horse! Very nice. The closest thing we have around here is the Kook in Cardiff by the Sea.

Stephen Hayes said...

Love the Santa horse. I was hoping this horse would make an appearance this holiday season. Happy New Year.

Anne said...

I love that your town has a mascot-so charming. I have to go with the Mothers Day outfit. It's the hat that makes it perfect!!

Have a Happy New Year!

Nita Davis said...

That horse always makes me smile. Wishing you all the best for a fantastic new year.

A Beer For The Shower said...

A gorilla riding a horse? Oh, game over. That took it before I even saw the rest.

I've always had lizards, but never a bearded dragon. I've got a pretty cool blue tongued skink, though.

Happy New Year!

Chuck said...

The haunted horse is hands down the best one...but I loved them all. Great symbol for your town. Have a great New Years, Robyn.

Unknown Mami said...

Oh I can't pick a favorite. That horse is a fashion plate and inspiration.

Baby Sister said...

I'm going to have to go with Mother's Day or Thanksgiving. So hilariously awesome.
