What a crazy week, but TGIF... First of all... Bottle bombs are back!
Favorite Warning: Bottle Bombs
It's a sad day in America when we have to worry about Bottle bombs! It's been checked out by Snopes.com & everything! This is the real McCoy. If you see something like this on the ground, DO NOT pick it up. I forget all of the logistics behind it, but apparently there are some noxious gases inside,where the slightest movement can trigger it to go off! Its sad because community service groups pick up litter all over the country. It's almost like you can't do a good deed anymore without it coming back to bite you in the butt. It's sad that picking up something as innocent as a bottle could ruin your life. It's said that you could lose limbs & cause other serious damage, and possible death if you pick this up & it goes off. BEWARE
Favorite Activity: Reading to Daycare Kids
Speaking of community service... I got a great chance to take our group to read stories at a daycare for a community service project. It was a LOT of fun. The kids were fun & energetic. The best part for me was being able to proof read the books before we took them to the children. This one was one of my favorites & was absolutely hilarious! It just talked about a squirrel that had a little OCD about not getting bitten & the measures he takes to make a new friend. If you have a leisurely afternoon- go to the library-- and better yet, if you have kids tear them away from the tv & video games and sit in the kid section & read for a bit. You won't believe the selection they have now! Some of these things, I'm looking at sideways, because I KNOW that a kid won't know what certain things are. But Like I said. it's fun, even as an adult, to sit in the kids section & read like 10 books in a row. A lot made me laugh out loud, and that's always a great thing.
Favorite Gripe: My car overheating w/3 teenage girls in the car...
Like they say, no good deed ever goes unpunished... I don't necessarily believe that- but this is one of the times it was true. I already in a crappy mood before going on the community service project last night... and just as the night was ending, my car overheats! I've never had a problem with it, but today of all days, it wants to overheat w/3 teenage girls in the car... And these were not older teens. These were younger teens, where 2 of them were fighting and the other instigating... It was crazy! I wasn't sure if this was a sign of help for my dad (aka knight in greasy armor) to come and help me get my car together, or for these girls parents to come and get them... I don't know... But ever since discovering how to super-size my Instagrams, I've been experimenting on posting life events. Being trapped in a cold car, waiting for help is one, lol.
Favorite Picture: Pin-Up Girl Chic
As many of you know, I LOVE the pin-up girl style! This impression of a Rosy the Riveter type girl, was all the rage in the 1930's & 1940's... I love this drawing. It emphasizes that she's strong, independent, sexy, feminine & determined. It also holds up a bit of a mirror to society today. She wasn't a woman looking for a handout. She was willing to work hard & get what she wanted by her own efforts. She's sexy, but that's not her only asset. There's a lot of things we could remember about women like her!
Favorite Memories: My siblings!
This being siblings week, my sister found some old pics of my brother & sisters... Unfortunately, there aren't any of my youngest brother, Seth, but I always post pics of him, anyway... but this was just hilarious! I can't believe how fast the years go! The baby in both pictures is my brother, Cameron, ( the dancer who I featured last week). You'll learn more about my family as time goes on, but I thought I'd leave you w/these awesome throw-back pics from the 80's & 90's.
