Went in for routine visit and blood tests. The tech needed to fill three vials, no problem but since I have small veins,(yeah,on me finally something small),there was a problem with the first draw. Not painful, but after the vial was filled it kind of looked like the BP oil spill bubbles coming out of the arm. This meant the tech had to go to my forearm for the next two and that was fine. I walked out of the lab with two bandage strips, made me feel like an Army corporal.:-)

Three little girls I know will soon be receiving these. Maybe they'll be the next Bob Dylan, Paul Butterfield or James Cotton? Our first female blues harp player in the family? Or maybe they'll just drive their mothers insane?! Bwahahahaha!

I love watermelon anytime of the year but summer just makes it that much sweeter. Looking at the beautiful, glistening, red fruit makes you feel cooler and happy! It also served as cheap entertainment when we would see who could spit the seeds the farthest. In our family it's also known as yuckum. No it isn't one of our Mutsun tribal words, it's a word my parents first heard from my baby sister's vocabulary. While shopping at a local fruit stand one day my father asked my sister, "Baby what do you want?" She was around two and she responded, "Yuckum Daddy!" He had to take her around the many vegetables and fruit until they stood in front of a box of watermelons and she identified yuckum.
One of my best friend's son is off to DC on a scouting trip. I so hope he enjoys it as much as we did. It put me in a reflective mood this morning about our vacation in April. Here's probably one of my favorite spots we discovered during those awesome 9 days; Signers Island on the National Mall. The views were spectacular as was the tranquilty of this quiet spot a midst all the Spring Break activity that Easter Sunday.

I have this icon at the bottom of my work emails under my name and contact info with the tag line; "Please consider the environment before printing this email." It's pretty common thing to see now a days. I had an outside vendor tell me they really hate when people shove their political viewpoints down their throats via email, especially work email. LOL Alrighty! Have a nice day to you too. Maybe you should recycle your ATTITUDE!

While driving around the town of Blue Ridge Georgia we discovered this drive-in movie.We were a little early for the show but found a great parking place right next to the snack bar! There did seem to be something missing though,that little box with the one volume dial.

I remember as a child these were a penny a piece and now they are 15 cents each. They bring back a memory of a lady in my childhood neighborhood. Mrs.Reese and her mother, who we called Grandma, had turned her garage into a little store where she sold candy and few other items. We would search and find empty soda bottles to cash in at the larger stores. Sometimes we each got a nickel and we would hurry to splurge it on our visit to her place. As soon as you walked in you were standing in front of a glass case filled with a variety of candies, some were even two for a penny. It was a glorious sight for us kids and time consuming for her as we made our choices. Wonderful times.

A cool store recently flooded us with memories of our simple toys growing up. And that reminded me of "Klackers" and the Tops that had a urethane wheel as the tip, you'd rub it on the ground, getting it going and then put it on it's tip. The top would take off, skipping on the ground. These were fun but soon would get kind of boring. THAT was until we discovered these were lethal weapons if we stuck them in each others hair, especially who ever we were mad at. The top would grab hold of the hair and wind it up in a tangled ball. I'm pretty sure that was the summer most of us girl cousins ended up with pixie hair cuts and black eyes. LOL! We also beat each others brains out with the Klackers.

Recently my daughter discarded a jacket she wore forever and now it's my turn. I have loved these pjs, originally green in color, for years because the print was all dogs. The material became threadbare and I would wear them in summer but they have gone beyond threadbare to skin baring! A sad goodbye.
