Five on Friday: August 26, 2016

1. Getting ready to say goodbye to August. It's not my favorite month because of the heat and humidity but there are a bunch of good birthdays. My friend Anna was August 11, my Nana was August 13,  my son is August 26 and he shares that date with my granddaughter, his niece. Maybe all the candles (if they were all alive) is causing the heat!



2. When my fisherman came back from Alaska he stopped at the Midway (Chicago) airport and bought snacks for me. I'd heard of this place and thought of going on one of our Chicago trips but it was a cold, cold time and a bit to far from our hotel.  Yes, it's all gone.  A combo of cheese popcorn and candied. Very very good combo.

3. I am waiting for my molar crown to be replaced and with the temporary, I'm being very careful about chewing on that side so most of those candied kernels just got a bit of savoring before they hit the trashcan.

4. A friend of mine had yellow polish on her toes last week. That was what I wanted not this. I'll have to ask her what color it was not that I plan to have yellow again. Oh well...in the scheme of life it's not critical is it?



5. I have been waiting for it to get cooler for some semi-local trips. Alas, it seems that our 90°+ weather is lingering longer than I'd like. I had postponed a trip I'd hoped to make today til next week praying for cooler, but at least there should be less traffic. Take blessings as they come!

Have a great weekend and I'll see you back here on Monday!

TBT: School Day 1950s

Back with another photo of me and my friend Mary Ellen. While it's not back to school time,  it is a school morning and my mother is coming out of the apartment door while my father takes a photo. Believe it or not my socks were green to match...my uniform jumper? but more likely my Girl Scout sweater.



Mary Ellen and I walked to school so I don't know what was going on that both of my parents were not at work. That's a mystery I may never know as well as why did my father have his? camera then. Perhaps this was a photo for a Girl Scout badge as I did developing then for that badge. Whatever. It's two 9 year old girls squinting and giggling on a typical day before school. And I'm glad to have that memory.
