Some of you might remember the post about our local hospital and the battle to open a trauma center. Blake Hospital WON the battle and now there is one 2 miles from my front door and I love the sound of the helicopters saving lives.
Blake has declared the entire property smoke free. They removed all the smoking zones for visitors and employees.
This bright orange fence warns us there is still construction going on and NO SMOKING.
NOW I wonder, what will they do if someone Dares To Smoke in the parking lot? a whipping? a fine? your picture in the news paper? it just warns, but does not tell what the penalty will be. Since I am not a fan of being told what to do, I Thought About, trying it to see what would happen. Drat, I had no cigarettes or matches.
Actually a fence is somewhat of a warning. as in KEEP out.
Does a sign that tells you NOT to do something make you want to DO it? come on now, be truthful.
" THE BULB burned out, it just FLASHED when I turned it on" says MS
" No Problem, get me a bulb" says MS Hubby then he calmly twisted the bulb off and left this in the HOLE
THEN He LEFT it laying on the counter in PLAIN VIEW of The MadSnapper.
What else could I do? huh? huh?
MadSnapper said "I FEEL A POST COMING ON" and she grabbed the camera (it's all his fault, he should have put it in the garbage and I would never have seen it.)
This same MadSnapper had a complete Duh moment and sprayed my HAIR with Eye Glasses Cleaner
Well! they do sit side by side on the shelf and are about the same size... did you know Eye Gas Cleaner Wets the hair and makes the curl come OUT? well? did you?
NO they don't sit on the kitchen counter, but when I carried them in the kitchen to take their photo for this post, there lay the shadows........ besides, I could not take the camera to the bathroom shelf because, well, there was a tad of DUST.... but that is another story.
OK!!! Which one of you just said "can't she EVER take just ONE photo of something?"
OK, I know they are CUTE.... but what are they to me and my husband? this is the question. Patti is our niece, daughter of Bob's sister. Patti's daughter is our great niece, and these are her children.
UPDATE: all photos today were taken by Patti, the children's grandmother. they live in PA and she emailed me these photos.
They are the grandchildren of my husbands niece, Their Pop Pop is a volunteer fireman and they were at the Fireman's Christmas party.
Besides being the Epitome of Cute... what are they to us. Great Great niece/nephew? I am waiting to here.
Meet Cody, the one sitting on Kayla... who knows why, but it looks like fun to me.
I watched The Christmas Star on Hallmark HD and it is a wonderful story if you have not seen it. Ed Asner as an escaped convict in a Santa Suit. LOVED IT
Oh, Beautiful Star of Bethlehem,
Shining afar thru shadows dim,
Giving a light for those who long have gone, have gone;
And Guiding the Wise Men on their way
Unto the place where Jesus lay,
Beautiful Star of Bethlehem, shine on.
