I would like to open this post by extending a big THANK YOU to new “Follower” Maureen Hill. I appreciate everyone that joins my group of Followers and say Welcome Aboard, I’m glad to have you along for the journey.
Nothing much going on for us today. Weather is nice at around 80F. No hassles and no worries at the moment.
I could say Life is Awesome, but that might get me into a heap of trouble. I’ve been learning from the blogs that this word is way over used. Yep! I have used it a lot over the many, many blog comments I’ve posted. Guess I’ll have to give a new descriptive word when I want to compliment someone’s photo or blog post. I looked awesome up in our small dictionary. For definition it read: inspiring awe, wonderful, impressive. I also looked at the bottom of the page in the Thesaurus section and it read: striking, moving, impressive, see: Grand. That information is all according to Mr. Webster.
Truth be told, when I look at some of the photos people post on their blog….they are AWESOME. I’m not going to name names here because you all know who you are with the “striking” pics. (Al, Judy, Rick, Jerry, and many more)
Maybe I’ll just have to say, “Nice pic on your blog today”. Nice is nice, but it seems so ordinary to me as a compliment. But I’ll take the loud hint and not use the word awesome any more. I may forget and it may slip through from time to time, so please bear with me. At my age it is hard to remember the protocol for all this blogging business.
Here in Washington we have a lot of characters. Many of them run for political office. We got our ballots recently and I saw a couple of those characters were running for office (again). I can’t recall seeing Goodspaceguy ever listed, but we’ve seen Mike the Mover on almost every ballot since we moved here in 1994. I read in the paper he legally changed his name to “Mike the Mover”. To my knowledge, he’s never been elected to anything. Go figure!
We got an S.O.S. call from Stephanie today. Zoey saw a lady bug lunch box she wanted for her journey to Kindergarten beginning in September. They didn’t buy it when they saw it the first time, and now they couldn’t find another one. Grandma and Papa got the call to see if the Olympia Toys R Us had one. The kid’s were all up in Seattle for Mackenzie’s gymnastics camp and were looking at the stores there….nothing left.
Many different styles for kids to choose from but it had to be a lady bug.
No big adventures to write about today. That’s good. We need to store up our energy to begin our babysitting job again bright and early next Monday.
Please note: In no way did I mean this post as a rant. It was written all in fun and I don’t want anybody getting their panties all in a bunch about the whole “awesome” experience. That’s what blogging is for me….FUN. So go out and have yourselves a nice day, won’t you?
Until next time……so long for now!
