Before we get spoiled with that extra money (from not having a van payment every month), we will take the leap and buy something else...sensible and sturdy.
Got some good work done in the office today. Gordon went to Walmart without me! He said he just needed a couple of things and did not want to disturb the good work I was doing. Yeah, Right! The sneak!
Had some very disappointing business news late this afternoon, but this is another one of those instances where God is trying to teach us greater patience and trust, or He is giving us practical experience in "casting our cares/troubles" on Him and just keep pushing forward. Work the problem.
The half-a-Westie is Annie. I started grooming on her first, but UPS arrived with some smoked knuckle bones, and we could not find her again after I had completed grooming the other four little white dogs. She was off chewing. Right now she is stretched against my back, sound asleep.
Very soon I will give the three big English Shepherds a nice summer cut. Will share pictures soon.
These are just a few of the pictures Gordon scanned and remastered for Mama's Mother's Day present. For a number of days preceding Mother's Day, Gordon scanned old slides at 1200 dpi, which takes extra time.
He set up the screen and digital projector, and she and Unc had a great time looking at old family slides from many different decades. I frantically took notes to add to the digital photo files.
Excluding the first two pictures, do you notice any particular theme in these pictures, aside from the person in every picture?
The second picture taken on the Mississippi Gulf Coast...I look like I had rickets. I did not, trust me.
The first picture defies explanation. I am told there was a stripper who worked with balloons. Maybe it was a popular act around 1965
Somebodyorother Rand danced nude with some giant fans in the 50's or 60's. I saw that in the movie, "Apollo 13".
Was there a famous balloon strip act?
What would possess parents to do this to their little three year old?
I do remember having a lot of fun playing with the balloons, and it was reportedly difficult to snap a demure shot without major skin showing.
To my knowledge, neither of my parents or any other members of my family have ever seen a real strip act.
Please, please do not take embarrassing pictures of your kids. One of these days, I have some more tales to tell you. It is a miracle I am not a psychopath or something. *wink*
