Yea! It's Friday!! You know what that means...Time to purge our minds of the bits and fragments from the week that didn't make it into posts of their own but continue to clutter our brains. Friday Fragmenting is oh, so satisfying. Why not join in this week? [For the skinny on Friday Fragments and how to play, click here.]
***There's still plenty of time to enter my Gratitude Giveaway, with more than five different prizes, including a personalized birthday song from my mom. It's simple to enter, and right now, your chances of winning are 1 in 11. Go for it!
***My Favorite Friday Fragmenter this week was Shannon, at The Gypsy Life. The fragment that hooked me was this one--"The talk" with her son about his changing pubescent body. In this part, her husband (M) is doing the explaining to their son (C):
M: ...One change you will experience is getting hair all over your body.
M: Yep, all over your body, in places that you don't have hair on even.
C: Will I get hair like you?
M: Yes, just like me.
Shannon, the award is yours this week.
(And let that be a lesson to you, everybody--Do NOT be that guy/girl who has hair growing out of his/her nose. Buy a trimmer before you think you need one! haha)
***Mr.4444 grilled 600 hamburgers and 400 hotdogs on Tuesday at the "Senior Cookout" in Tinytown. It was 88 degrees at the park, with ultra-high humidity. He said that the kids were very appreciative.
***My mom loves the Karen Neuburger socks that I gave her as a gift years ago. That's why I'd love to win another pair to give her for her birthday in June. Not that you'd want to enter The Mom Jen's giveaway of Karen Neuburger socks (and decrease my odds of winning), but if you did, you'd go here.
***Did you know that three newly-hatched hummingbirds weigh about as much as an American dime? I learned this while Googling Mr.4444's question, "I wonder how big hummingbird eggs are?" and finding How to Enjoy Hummingbirds.
***I found this entry in our local police records amusing (sorry, Mighty Mom):
05/05/2010 12:23 am - Assist EMS - S. August Street Severe Cut to finger while quilting. Transported by EMS to Bellin Hospital. Husband notified.
Who (other than MM, maybe) knew quilting was so dangerous?!
***Okay, I can tolerate the single ad in between posts, but more than one? Yuck!! Don't expect me to return, sorry. I just don't like ads cluttering up a blog.
***I read this note in our Boy Scout Troop newsletter:
We need ice cream pails with lids for booyah sales. Each scout must eat four pails of ice cream by Sept. 30th.
Because I'm just that supportive a parent, I'm going to do my best to help with this.
***Anything fun planned this weekend? We're thinking of going camping! Wish us luck on getting a site this late in the game.
Okay, now it's your turn. Link up your FRIDAY FRAGMENTS post here. Sorry. Non-FF posts will be deleted (and the offenders will be lashed.)
