Rainbow Colors

Let’s Just Blow Bubbles

SOMETIMES . . .
Let’s just blow bubbles,
For no good reason
Let’s just blow bubbles,
Laugh a little, watch them disappear
Not even wonder where.
Smile and touch the rainbow colors
Watch them float in the air.
No reason why–
No goals, no structure.

SOMETIMES . . .
Let’s just
blow bubbles.

Ice Breaker

Happiness is not ready-made, it comes from your own actions.

– Dalai Lama

I met this little boy today his name is Malik.  He was a little shy with me at first so I decided to break the ice with my new bubble machine.  What kid or adult  does not like bubbles?  Needless to say it worked, he was no longer shy with me and had a blast chasing down the bubbles.

Security

Lately my grandson has been watching his shows on my iPad under the security of his blankets, covers or whatever he can find to be alone.

Things That Make you Say “HMMM…”

Driving down this little side street by my home I came across this toilet.  Someone must have actually dumped it there instead of it falling off a truck.  I say this because it was just sitting upright just to the side of the road.

What have you seen on the side of the street that makes you say “hmmm….”?

Down Memory Lane

Since I was about 14 years old I started saving all birthday cards, Christmas cards, postcard, poems and letters that I have received from family and friends.

Today I was going through one of the boxes and came across some postcards that my uncle sent to me back in 1981 when he was traveling the world with the US Air Force.

But the most heart warning thing I found were 2 cards that my kids gave me. One was for my birthday and the other one was just because.

This card was for my 34th birthday and it says that I am over the hill!  Since I am now 51 what does that make me? 😆😆

And this card was just because.
