Friday Fragments, Episode #91
Friday Fragments is like cleaning a junk drawer; you dump the junk, save the good stuff, put it all in a somewhat logical order, and feel great when you're done. Consider FF your blogging junk drawer, and now it's time for some spring cleaning :) (Click the buttons above for more information on Friday Fragments. Danifred is sick this week, so there will be no Friday Night Leftovers today.)
***If you're the praying type, please keep Hallie in your prayers as she journeys through the darkest path any parent can go through; the lost of a child.
***When a white-as-a-sheet Caucasian leaves a Mexican restaurant at which the food was delicious, what should they say to the obviously-Latinos/Hispanic people working there? "Thanks!" or "Gracias!" ??? Kendall and I were tempted to say gracias, but we didn't want to appear disrespectful or seem like we were mocking anyone.I'd be curious to know your thoughts.
***Messy Mommy had a dream about me, and it cracked me up...
I had a dream that I met Mrs. 4444 IRL. I was so nervous I just stood there and pointed. Luckily she recognized me. Then we were BFFs and played basketball. Ya, my dreams are weird.
***Mary's Flashback Friday post last week really resonated with me. If you can relate to childhood roadtrips or being part of a huge family, you will love it.
***Caution was my Favorite Friday Fragmenter last week, because she was the first one to make me laugh out loud....
Unsettling news takes over: While I was in the hardware store, I bought some suet cakes for the birds and found one claiming to attract teen-agers. I wondered what kind of bird would attract teens and I actually bought it. After I got home, I realized it said Tanagers - which is apparently not a human, but a bird.
Here's your award, Caution. (Poor thing deserves it, what with her trying so hard to be the "cool" house for the teens to hang out at.)
***You may remember Bee from my audio recording of her post about her daughter's heartwrenching request of Santa this year. I have never believed more strongly about the value of a post than I do of her most recent post, which includes her ailing husband's account of his own death and subsequent return to life last fall. It's a MUST read: Angels and Ear Trumpets: Chilly's Story. (Chilly, thanks again for sharing your very moving story.)
***WooHoo!!! Molly's Brandon was the winner of our local GLEE Casting Call!!! This means simply that his audition video will actually be seen by producers of the show! If you voted, Thanks!
***Don't forget to visit Danifred's Sippy Cups Are Not for Starbucks and link up. And here's a 14-second clip to give you an idea of what goes on over at her place when she's not busy with Friday Night Leftovers:
***Thank you for your wonderful comments this week; I've read every single one (of course) and plan to reply this weekend. I look forward to being able to better keep up with everyone once school lets out for summer in SIX MORE WEEKS! (Yeehah!! :)
Here's the Linky for anyone who has a Friday Fragments post. Just so you know, you don't have to link up a photo or button; if you don't, it will just be blank but will show your name. That said, I think the "quilt" of linkers last week looked awesome!! This is also a "blog hop," (I guess), which means that not only can the links show here on my page, but fragmenter lists can be posted on your blog, too, if you want.
