Aloha Friday

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.
In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that they take it easy and look forward to the weekend. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response
It's a loaded question this week........
What do you think about AIG?
I am pretty sure that I need blood pressure medicine because of them. Their bonus alone could buy HUNDREDS of my home over and over. It is true than I enjoy a good deal but it is also true that I clip coupons and go through the Sunday flyers to match my coupons with sales because my family has to watch every dollar, while they are getting outrageous bonuses AND they have my taxpayer money on top of that. There is something seriously wrong going on here. AIG can suck it as far as I am concerned!!! There, I feel better!!!!

Thousand Words Thursday

Jake and one of his first friends, Collin. They are only 2 weeks apart and I worked with Collin's Mom. We are sad that we live too far apart now to just "go play".

How to Talk to Girls

My son is quite the reader and he was thrilled when he received this book as a gift from his aunt. You see, it has really cool boy stuff in it like how to build a fort, how to build a paper airplane, you know, all of the important things a boy should know.
Well, apparently there is also a section on "How To Talk To Girls" AND Jake read it!!!! So, without telling me a thing, he went off to school and at recess marched right up to a 3rd grader!!!! (Jake is only in 2nd grade) He proceeded to tell her a joke and then was about to let her talk about herself (just like it says in the book) and you know what she did?!!!! She slapped him!!!!!!!!!
After he told me about what happened (and me wanting her name, soc number and address to kick her butt!!!) I had to explain to him that he did the right thing and that she just wasn't a very nice girl. I mean I couldn't let his confidence be more hurt than it already was.
I guess I better read the rest of the book to find out what other things he may be attempting do!!!

Great Gift Idea

Below are a few examples of photos that I have taken over the years. I can take any photo you have and turn it to black and white and leave a certain item in color. Contact me for pricing information if you are interested. If you live close enough, I can do a photo shoot for you with all of your photos on a cd for YOU to develop!!!
