Good fortune!

Today, My Aide was showing me this picture her boyfriend sent.  It was really goofy, he had written a note to her on lined paper that was like something we did when we were kids and wanted some boy to like us.  It was like:

"I love you, do you love me?"

Then there were 2 boxes, one marked yes and one marked no, and he had written "check one".

All of a sudden I thought of those paper things us girls made- The fortune teller!

  You know, you pick a color, pick a number, and see what fortune is under the flap.

So I start giggling and telling My Aide we should make one for her boyfriend.  At first I was just thinking silly fortunes like "mansion" and "millionaire", and then it hit me....


So, since I never learned how to make one when I was a kid, My Aide made it:

While she was doing that, I got on the webs and looked for something useful.  I ran a across the funniest video, you can catch it here, it's pretty damn funny!

And that got me thinking, the fortunes for the fortune teller should be....


So, I drew them in:

Good fortune to My Aide and her boyfriend tonight!

Remember, it's just a ride.

Favorite photo?

New hop I'm trying...hope it's a good one!

Hope everyone saw my last post about the crazy bar sign....I thought it was pretty damn funny!  If you missed it, just check it out here.

So, I thought that I would get to another day of the  30 Day Challenge.  Today is- Favorite picture.

I don't know if I have just one favorite.....I am a compulsive picture taker, soooo, here's a few:

There's this one of me and My Aide out having dinner at this place that has a wall full of cattle brands...

There's this one of my Grandson and me out in the yard.  Let's face it, any picture of the Grandson is going to be in the top 10 list!

There's the Graduation Night Bonfire fiasco picture....That's the Christmas tree topper going up in flames.  This is on the list because it was such a fun night.  But let me say that they don't take kindly to men in kilts out where I live!  Especially when they're dancing around a bonfire....

Youngest graduating.  That was a good day!

There are many, many more, but I think that's good for today!

Remember, it's just a ride.

I know I already posted once today, but....

I just want to get everyone's take on this sign for a bar out in a random canyon here in Western Colorado:

Does anyone else see what I see at first glance?

Just checking...

Remember, it's just a ride.

It's Tuesday!

So check out the hop put on by Survey Junkie, it's a good one!

It's Tuesday, and that means my weekend is done.  For those of you who don't know, Saturday is my Friday, and Tuesday is my Monday.  No wonder I'm all screwed up!

And, today is another day of the 30 Day Challenge.  Today's exciting topic:  Your Childhood.  Did I say exciting?  I meant hopelessly boring.  Really.

I think my childhood was like most others.  Except there were no video games...wait, I take that back.  We had PONG!  Black and white and made to stimulate the reflexes!

It really was terribly exciting.

Then when I was 12 we got an Odyssey:

My Grandparents had an Atari system, and my favorite game:

Missile Command!

After my mom saw that I played it non stop, she refused to let the family have any more gaming systems, until one Christmas I subversively bought my siblings...


Now they're so addicted to gaming that they have an XBox, Playstation 2, and still own all the old gaming machines.

My work is done.

Rmemeber, it's just a ride.
