Toby Day

The attorney who owns Toby the chihuahua brought him in on casual Friday.  Quite the ladies' man :)

A spot of humor

"Out of the mouths of babes" edition # 32654151484012

John Sam:  Mom, I would hug you even if I was forced not to.

Caroline:  Mom, can I have some grape-cranberry juice?  It's got nutrients.

Sharing some sparkler pictures from 4th of July that I didn't post with the others.  JS and CG had as much fun with them this year as with the snap-its.  I look like a zombie in my picture because I wasn't wearing my secret magic makeup that hides my undereye circles.  Hoping you won't even notice it because of the electrifying photos you are about to see.  HA!

Absentee blogger

The absentee blogger is making a post tonight!  :)

Here's the trellis for the Don Juan roses that haven't learned to climb because they previously never had a trellis.  Let's not discuss exactly how long I've had said trellis--

Christmas in July ;)

While I was purging the old school stuff, I found some art projects mixed in with the worksheets.  I think you'll agree this one is classic John Samuel!!!

Have a nice Thursday evening! xo xo

lost on the C-drive

I had a couple of random scanned pictures to post, and now I can't find them.  Too annoyed to try a third time.  But...

"After all, tomorrow is another day!"  :)

Orchids & Tomatoes

I got an orchid plant when I visited Bok Tower and remembered that I didn't post pictures of it.

I think these are called cherry tomatoes, but my dad used to call them tommy-toes.  :)

True Colors

How's this one for showing your true colors?

Should Judge Perry give him the same sentence as that kid in the audience??  I think so.

(I swear this is my last post on this subject.)

I have to apologize for my snarky swipes towards the jurors.  (Sometimes I should wait to cool off before I post!)  I know they had a civic duty and did what they were instructed to do--at much inconvenience and emotional cost to them.  I am convinced, though, that they will come to regret their decision and be angry that they weren't given every single piece of the puzzle.  That'll be on 20/20 in a few years.

I definitely wish there was a way to prevent everybody involved in the case from making a boatload of money, because that would be profiting from a child's unsolved death, right? 

On the news, I heard that Mr. Ashton will retire at the end of the week.  I am very sad to learn about that.  He was one of the good ones.

I have some flower pix and other summery things, so I will post them tomorrow to start fresh. 

A true travesty

I am in shock as is the rest of this country.  :(

Caylee Marie Anthony got no justice today.

My comments to the jury are:

How do you think Caylee died?

Do you not remember the photos of duct tape around that precious soul's head?

You are going to be revolted when you hear all the information that you weren't allowed to hear.

Jose Baez is an absolute buffoon, but you've just made him famous.  And rich beyond his wildest dreams.  Yay for y'all.

Think about Caylee when you do that first interview (probably later today)....and when you get that big fat check from your book deal.

Last but not least, enjoy your blood money. Don't forget about the Universe repaying in kind. There's no way you're getting around that. 

Our justice system has proved it is an effed up mess. What little faith I had has been demolished. On the dark side:  There is one person who's probably very happy:  Mr. O.J. Simpson.  Maybe the two of them can get together and start a "Murderers Who Got Away With It" club.

Who else will be the next to go free after committing a horrible, unspeakable crime? Stay tuned!

Backdated to June 18, 2011 -
While John Sam was working on passing 4th grade, he was also saving his money.  When he passed, he got to buy what he'd been saving and waiting for:

I don't think he likes it very much, do you?  ;0

contrary much?

I saw my last post about how it felt good to be tired . . . and then I was complaining about being tired only one little short week later -

It's because I have a lot of extra time to do stuff I don't normally have time to do, so I get on a roll doing it.  Then it turns out I'm sleep deprived because of all that EXTRA time!  muhahahaha ;)
