My biggest accomplishments…I took a selfie in the bathroom mirror because I put earrings in for the first time in over two months…

Traveling the way we do, we forget what it’s like raising kids. At my daughter’s, a couple of neighbor boys slept over in the living room.

We fed the boys breakfast on the patio and 13 year old Michael fell asleep at the table. It must have been a hard night.

Grandson, Austin spends at least one Saturday per month at the local Home Depot on a building project they sponsor for kids. He has a work apron, a pre-cut wood project ready to assemble. Glue and nail with decals. He paints his projects at home. This little tool box is for his father, for Father’s DaySmart marketing teaching kids to enjoy working with tools in an age where they press computer buttons on their video games and spend time glued to some type of screen or another. The kids are rewarded with a certificate of completion  and a button to pin on their apron. Austin has completed quite a few projects.

Part of that marketing strategy gets the parent in the store to do some shopping, which we did, looking for a clothes line. I spotted an employee wearing a very hardware store type of earring, a heavy nut. Rather fun, appropriate.

Then we spent the afternoon at Laurie and Ken’s playing Rumikub.

Son Ken fixed tacos for everyone.

Weekends with kids- family time, is pretty good stuff.

Jim and I went for burger night at the American Legion last night. There I met Kathy, a fun gal who found a treasure. Some earrings she hadn’t seen in a couple of years. She took them to the hall  to show her friends. We talked her into putting them on for a picture, except, I only had my cell phone with me.  Now, these earrings were six inches long and bountiful with beads. Real creations that demand special consideration of when and where a person would wear them. (She got lots of advice.) With her long blonde hair, the earrings were stunning on her. The pictures turned out nice…but…I don’t have the USB cord to get the pictures off my phone. Dang, I hate it when I go somewhere without my camera. So, I searched the net for earrings to provide a similar picture of Kathy’s earrings. I looked at “shoulder dusters” , Chandeliers, sexy exotic long earrings. There was Statement jewelry, Gypsy Moon, ethnic earrings, stiletto dangles, cosmic beads, comet glass…nothing  compared to her original creation until I checked Ebay. There, my friends, was a real shoulder duster, and its vintage. Longer than Kathy’s, but Kathy’s earrings were wider with several falls.  The search was fun and I learned a lot about ear wear.  The beer and burger were good, too.
