A Simpler Time

10/15/1956
Do you realize there was a time when a simple photo of my mother's cheer squad was news? Not for doing anything wrong, but because they were simply being cheerleaders and doing what they do! My mom is top row all the way to the left, standing next to her very best friend, Sara Smith. Look at those long skirts, socks and saddle shoes. It ain't yo momma's cheerleadin' no mo'!

Let's see, I have a fire ant bite on the bend in my index finger so as I type, it is sending out a minute bit of pain because, for those of you who don't know, fire ant bites HURT AND ITCH. And I'm sacrificing my comfort to blog today! LOL!

Actually, my garden wounds include the infamous fire ant bites from my recent attack, a splinter in my palm, a gash from being stabbed by a tree branch and many thorn stabbings from reaching in to weeds. Ah, the glories of gardening. I normally wouldn't mind, but here I am at work showing people jewelry accented by the beauty of my wounded hands and fingers! LOLOLOLOLOLOL!

Please go check out my challenge at The TBD Loft because you can win a $10 GC for Tangie's store. I know all y'all can do it and you don't even have to use her stuff. And if you do pop on my to have a look-see, leave a comment and say HI!!! Why? Cuz it will make me feel good! LOL!

I am off to pick up my taxes. I'd go on and on about this but who really cares? We all got something to say about it....hehehehehe

And then to get a few maintenance items for my pool filtration system. Although, why? It is going to be in the eighties today probably and then on Sunday night down to 37 deg. BRRRRRRR! But that is April here...lots o teasing for the great weather to come.

I am working on a lo that I started yesterday that I will probably post tomorrow. Anyhow, I need to get my butt in gear and this show on the road and all that!

Ouch, sounds like gardening has left you a little battered! Sounds like fun though -- we only get to garden cactuses out here and you don't want to know how many injuries they can cause!

I saw that clip on the Today show about the cheerleaders too. I blame the parents. WTH is wrong with people these days? Love the cheer photo of your mom :=_

Does gardening help you relax? hehehe Sorry, I wish I could garden. I would need my own space though. And I would have to be able to make things grow. ;) You made me laugh today. Loved your post. :) Good luck with your wounds.

Oh lord, your poor hands. I can imagine trying to show off jewelry like that. LOL In fact, been there done that. It's like, pardon all these gashes on my hand as I try to show you how this beautiful engagement ring will look on your girlfriend's finger. LOL

Here's to healing fast!

Love the thoughts of a "simpler" time and your photo. I have one of my mum out with work friends and it has the same sort of feel.

I hope your war wounds heal soon - want to borrow any pills?? LOL
