I cordially invite you to join me each week in the Sunday Scramble. The SS gives you a chance to write down your scattered, random, or just plain stupid thoughts. No rules apply here. I give you permission to write anything that's on your mind, whether it makes sense or not!
Okay, lemme know if I'm out of line here. Each day, I bring Madison to the bus stop and then pick her up in the afternoon. The girls' stop is half a mile from our house, as it is for many of the kids that take the bus. So I totally understand all those moms and dads taking the time to bring their kids up there. But tell me. Is it really necessary to not only drive them up there, but walk them straight to the damn doors of the bus? I'm not talking about the littles, but the kids who are 8, 9, 10, and 11 years old.
Then there are the moms that take it even a step further. They accompany their kids on their bikes. I have seen a some of these moms send their kids out a couple minutes ahead of them, and then they're seen pedaling like lunatics to get to the bus stop just to see their kid mount the stairs. I watch all this, sitting in the comfort of my car, where I actually let me child walk from point A (my car) to point B (the bus) all by her lonesome. The whole 30 or so feet. Gasp!
Is it any wonder why there are so many children out there that are afraid of their own shadow and have no sense of independence? It has to start somewhere, and dammit, I think walking 30 or so feet without holding Mommy's hand is a good place to start.
Okay, vent over.
Now you can tell me how wrong I am.
Yay! Saturday night is my nephew, Jonny's, play! I'm too excited for words. Of course, I'll get home too late to add anything about it on this post, but hopefully I'll have plenty to say next week.
I've been rather quiet, haven't I?
Now, we must all bow our heads for a moment in recognition of TAPS Yes, The Atlantic Paranormal Society. My beloved Ghost Hunters.
Their little office front in Warwick, RI.
Founder, Jason, and Co-Founder, Grant
Last week they celebrated their 100th episode on the SciFi network and they investigated...
Did you watch it yet, Sara? If not, you're in trouble!
I somehow even got Jimmy to watch it a couple of days after the fact, and I could tell that he was intrigued. He won't come out and say he's a believer, but I know he is. The TAPS team is so professional and at the core, skeptics. Not like some of those other ghost hunting shows where they're finding demons behind every closed door.
Congrats to Jason, Grant, Steve, Tango, and the whole TAPS team. I heart you guys. And Steve? I still want to lick the outline of every tattoo you have.
Among other things.
Call me the next time you're in Saint Augustine, investigating the lighthouse, mmmkay?
Let me just say. I hate blogs that have music playing on them. How can I concentrate on reading when there are words being thrown at me through my speakers? Eeks!
I don't know how I forgot to share these pictures of Strudel with you, but I did.
They're scary, so brace yourself.
This is what happens when three people stand inside the slider and the dog wants to get in.
Now this is attractive.
A short video to show you just how spastic this dog is.
Bless her heart.
