Two Shoes Tuesday: Imagine

This week on “two shoes tuesday” we were given the following two words to choose from Invitation and Imagine.  I chose to go with the idea of “Imagine”

Something that seemingly seems in short supply, or at least it so appears, when you look at the toys sold to kids these days.  Sure, you still see legos on the shelf but they often are as kits with pre-done pieces you simply piece together according to instructions to make the “item” in question.  What happened to using ones imagination to make the item invsioned in your mind.  What happenned to coloring outside the lines, or without lines at all?  What’s happened to taking what you imagine in your mind and making it from scratch?  Are we curbing the imaginings of our children’s mind with toys in the form of pre-made kits that only need the following of instructions to make what is seen on the box?

Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge

Heading on over to Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge….


This was the road leading up to or rather (in this angle) away from the start of a nearby trail I decided to check out with my son. Lots of ups and downs on the trail and we were both sore afterwards….

As for the road, I had to roll my eyes at the thought of going even 25 on that; Which, incidentally someone passed us doing (maybe more).

#DailyPrompt: Five a Day

I’m about to be exiled to a private island…  My captors have decided to be kind  (perhaps they feel sorry for me) and  are letting me choose 5 foods with which to be provided.  But I only get to choose 5.

I have decided to request the following:

  • Eggs (full of proteins and could be used in a variety of ways)
  • Dark Chocolate (A mood lifter and full of antioxidants)
  • Oranges (Lots of Vitamin C)
  • Oatmeal (Heart Healthy for starters)
  • Broccoli   (hey, I gotta have something green and broccoli is something to eat).

So there you go,  the five foods I choose.

Share Your World: 2015 – Week 7

Each week, Cee gives us four questions.  Questions about ourselves, questions that make you dig deep into yourself for answers.  Some are easy, some are hard, ALL are fun.  Join Cee for Week 7 of Share Your World:

Is the paper money in your possession right now organized sequentially according to denomination and with the bills right side up and facing the same way?

Ummmm what paper money???  Most of the time we’re lucky to have a couple bucks lying around  at any one time.  I did have a few bucks stuffed in a drawer…  That didn’t last long.

What is your favorite type of dog?  (can be anything from a specific breed, a stuffed animal or character in a movie)

There are a couple of breeds out there that I am fond of, none of which would be suitable in the house we live in:  German Shepherd,  Irish Setter, Golden Retriever,  Black or Gold Lab…    I think German Shepherds are an admirable breed.  They are often used by Police Departments in their K9 Units.  They are quick to come to the protection of their partner often selflessly putting themselves in harms way in order to save their partner’s life.  They can be ruthless and determined in finding and bringing down a bad guy…  And yet these seem dogs are right at home with their partners family, playing with the little ones. 

If money was not an issue, would you go on a cruise?  If so where would you go?

Question one – Yes!!  Question two – I have no idea.   I’ve never been on a cruise and I think it would be something fun to do (at least one anway).

Would you dare to sleep in haunted house overnight?

Not to be a boring fuddy duddy but, ummmm,,,,, nope.    Just not something I’d want to do  and not because I would necessarily believe in a house being haunted.
