Dumb Laws

I was listening to the radio and they were talking about dumb laws. So, I went online to see if my county had such laws. Yeap they do! It is illegal to do the following in Rockville Maryland:

Persons may not swear while on the highway.It is illegal to remove a public building by writing on it.Citizens may not swim in the public fountains within the city limits.If I ever see this I will make a citizen's arrest.

Hope Everyone had a Great Flag Day

Image
The national flag of the United States of America (the American flag) consists of thirteen equal horizontal stripes of red (top and bottom) alternating with white, with a blue rectangle in the canton (referred to specifically as the "union") bearing fifty small, white, five-pointed stars arranged in nine offset horizontal rows of six stars (top and bottom) alternating with rows of five stars. The fifty stars on the flag represent the 50 states and the 13 stripes represent the original thirteen colonies that rebelled against the British monarchy and became the first states in the Union.[1] Nicknames for the flag include the Stars and Stripes,

A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.
And, one who can enjoy browsing old cemeteries.
Some fascinating things are inscribed on old tombstones!

(Nowadays it would cost a small fortune to put poems like these on a headstone)

Dad's Little Girl

This was a photo someone sent me. The caption went something like "Little girl.. won't let go." Her Dad was getting ready to deploy that morning. In honor of the anniversary of D-day. Please remember the families that give up so much for love of God and country.

Life Lessons

I got this as an e-mail from a co-worker who soon after lost her battle with cancer. I wanted to share these great lessons. I try to pratice and remember daily.

45 lessons life

1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.

2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.

will. Stay in touch.

5. Pay off your credit cards every month.

6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

Rue McClanahan,

The Golden Girls is still one of my favorite shows. I always watch it on Life Time at werid hours when I can't sleep and each Saturday morning. The characters were great. The best memories I've had were sitting on the couch with mom and my grandma, who spoke limited english. The comdey crossed all language barriers. Each week nite we would get together to watch our show. My grandma has been gone for six years now. Yet, when my mom and I get together. You will find us drinking coffee with crackers watching the Golden Girls. This link has a nice article with scences from some of McClanahan's greatest T.V. moments.

Rambling thoughts

I worried about keeping a blog. I knew I couldn’t keep it up. Yet, I vow to do better in the coming months. Things have gotten busy with work and the home front.
I was in Colorado last week for leadership training. This training was one of the best training in my life thus far. It was worth every penny. Thanks to my hubby’s support we were able to scrap up the money. We were in the mountains of Estes Park, Colorado, 90 minutes from Denver. I’m currently working on a piece regarding the training and my experience.

Niece’s 2nd Birthday
Sienna turns two this month. My parents will be coming in from Puerto Rico to visit. Boo and I will be going up to Queens, New York for a visit. I will be baking this year’s birthday cake the theme Backyardigens. Sienna favorite character Pablo (she pronounces it Pabo) is the going to be the cake. I had a heck of a time finding the darn cake pan but I found it on e-bay. The things we do for our kids or nieces.
