Here's Miles!

      Miles just loved this beach ball from the fair!  It was so cute!   He  waited patiently for me to blow it up and he played so cute with it when I bounced it on the floor.  He bopped it all around. Then when I said to him "Come on over,  I'll take your picture with it."  He actually posed.  He stopped, posed and smiled.  I wouldn't believe it if I didn't see it with my own eyes.  The others in the room were just as surprised.   
     My Morning Glory finally bloomed -  blue?   The tag called it a Scarlett O'Hare Red.  Hmmmm.  I think that the tags got switched at the greenhouse.   Oh well, it's pretty anyway!  

     Well,  I'm steering clear of the RNC!   I don't think that being tear-gassed or pummeled by a police swat team is on my agenda.  Just as well as being beat up by a bunch of anarchists!  It's all and well that they wanted to protest - but for gosh sakes - what's their message?  Peace?   Throwing an outdoor table through Macy's window proves what?   Seeing the swat team positioned all over our little downtown - even on the roof of Mickey's Diner is heart-wrenching.  I feel like I am looking at a war zone.   You know, it's probably a good thing that President Bush and Dick Cheney did not come here.  Gustav was a good excuse for them to stay away.   However,  Gustav  did more damage here than the gulf coast.   All the promised monies that should have been made has been blown away in the breezes.   People and businesses that stock piled food and drink are being stuck.   But Not the Mall of America!   Never the Mall of America!

Good morning Robyn :)

Miles is so cute! How funny that he posed for you :)

Did you see Steve Ducey's son interview those idiots outside the RNC? They have no idea who the politicians are or what their cause is. I'm so sorry they're doing that to your town. Now that it's over, hopefully things will quiet down :)

Good Morning Robyn!

How cute is Miles! Your morning glory is pretty no matter what color but it would be disappointing.

Hopefully the crazy people have all gone to jail or home by now, whew! :)

Have a Fantastic Friday!

I know how you feel about the RNC. Last week, everyone I know was checking their calendars making sure they didn't have to go into Denver during the DNC. Take care, Sally
