Dear Younger Self

Ariana Browning, The Blogging Lounge, has asked us to post a letter to our younger selves. Actually, my younger self should write to me. After all, I'm the older one who deserves respect. But it wouldn't happen because she was too busy having fun being wild and crazy. She actually danced with a chair at a bar when no one else would get on the dance floor. She also threw a hat party in the 80s. Everyone wore odd hats to her apartment. I confess, she was way more fun than the old woman who writes memories on her computer. This young person would actually call people to make plans. The old lady is content to sit home and do nothing. 


Me on left and Rhonda on right


I could give the young one advice,–don't waste your money or drink the wine-but why bother? She'd never listen. Being social and having fun was all that mattered. It's interesting how having friends and going out has taken a back seat, today.

Furthermore, although fun, she was odd, too. It seemed that while everyone worked to fit in, she made sure not to and took pride in being different. Check out the shoes. I guess in some respects, she's still like that. However, life might have been easier had she chosen to go along to get along . . . but would it have been as much fun? 

Lastly, why didn't the young girl ever take pictures? Blogging would be much easier had she only used her camera more.

A Harsh Beginning

The Blogging Lounge's most recent assignment is "Begins with," so here is a scene from the earliest moments in the life of a little girl.

The fetus swam in warm water while listening to the soft pattering
heartbeat. The smooth waves rocked the baby to sleep. In her quietness she moved her weight over the dangling cord which circled the child head to foot with its record breaking length. The baby's head spun as oxygen shut off from the umbilical cord. Within moments, the bath water disappeared into a black nothingness. The limp body restored air as the fetus revived consciousness, only to repeat the  pattern again. 

Unfortunately, oxygen loss was not the only problem for the fetus' developing head lodged against a hard hip bone. Yes, the baby would be born. She would face the world with a red heart shaped birthmark on her forehead and a red tint down her face. Furthermore, the constant loss of consciousness in the womb would lead to a propensity to faint easily.

Now, let's perk this post up a bit.

Joke: A man finished baby-proofing his house and his wife says "Aw, honey. You said you didn't want to have kids."

He responds "I know. Let's see them get in now."

#WW: Sad News

Judy Haughton-James
Missing your thoughts from a Twinless Twin. 
We love you.
RIP


Judy left us on January 1, 2014. Although I never met her personally, I enjoyed visiting her blog and having her come see me. There is a definite hole in the blogsphere without her.
Had I not read Callie J'American Spice's post, I would have continued wondering where she's been. Here's the sad answer to all of our questions.

Dogwood Loves Dogs

Hello, peeps! I know I usually post Wordless Wednesday pictures on Tuesday nights, but I'm so excited to tell you about my school, that I figured I'd go ahead and spread my story right now. I'm participating in Fenced in by Love's Campaign to find the organization of the year that makes a difference in surrounding dogs with tenderness and affection.

Although Dogwood Elementary School's mascot is the dolphin, maybe it should
Ms. Pittman gives treat to Penny
be the dog for there's no 
shortage of love for these furry animals at this school in Germantown, Tennessee. For the past two years, dogs who accompany their kids to school receive a tasty treat and multiple pats on the head through the car window. These same dogs can gobble up a second goody at the end of the school day. 


This Dogwood tradition provides a fun human/animal connection for fourth and fifth grade safety patrol members, staff working the car line, and the dogs as well. The kids eagerly watch the cars to see if Cookie or Max will be pulling in soon. When the dogs arrive, students must learn compromising skills for determining who will be the lucky kid to give out a treat. The kids know all the dogs by name and what kind of car they will arrive in. As a staff member, I too enjoy visiting with our fur babies. I've especially enjoyed watching one puppy triple in size.


Kona
Many parents have reported stories about their dogs waiting at the door to go to school on Monday morning, as if they instinctively know the week end is over. Our snow day (or rather freezing rain day) proved to be a huge disappointment for Penny, the dog pictured above, without her twice daily visit to school. She arrives each morning with a puddle of drool dripping down the side of the van. Although her owner must constantly wipe the side of her car, she still brings our friend to school. Penny even brought donuts to car lane workers to celebrate Christmas one December morning.


Kona at Work
Dogwood Elementary School also enjoys a therapy dog on Wednesdays. Kona has been certified as a therapy dog and as a reading dog. He tries to visit school each week to allow special education students to read to him, as well as some struggling readers. The children light up at the chance to read to Kona. His services also provided a popular auction item at the fund raiser because every kid wants a chance to read to Kona. 

So what's next for Dogwood? Get this: Hollywood Feed Pet Store plans to donate the biscuits for the dogs and two aprons with treat pockets for the lucky school auction winners who will get to feed biscuits to our friends during the morning drop off. This should be a great way to continue the dog love at Dogwood Elementary School.

Sick of No Snow

I'm sick of no snow. The white stuff never sticks to the ground or whitens our world. We peer out the
window at drab, weedy grass. Every night, the news reports of the massive snow storms across the country, but nobody talks about us. The snow swept north across Missouri and blanketed Atlanta to the south. Even the Sunshine state saw white. It's as if there's a little ring of nothing surrounding Memphis, Tennessee.

It's the same pattern over and over again. Cold enough to change precipitation into a powdery white, but noooooo. Our skies are as dry as Gun Barrel City, Texas on a Sunday morning. As soon as the temperature rises above freezing, rain pounds the city. In fact, it pounded so hard at 33º, we figured it would ice over at night and keep us out of school. Ya think? The temp rose to the forties until all moisture was gone. Now, we're down to 23º. What's in store for the week? 



Cold enough to snow if it weren't for the sun symbol peaking out behind the clouds. When the temps drop that low, we might as well get snow and stay home. Precipitation will return as soon as the temperature warms up, and I will have to go to work another day.

It's not just kids who dream of snow days.

But wait . . .
     driving home from work tonight, I saw a few flurries.


    
             
                    It's already stopped, and this isn't pretty. :(

Test

I think my feed hadn't been sending out new posts. I just followed an idea from The Botchars to change my feed because it may have reached maximum size allowance.

Did you get this post?

If not, what brought you here. Thanks for responding. I hope this works!
