"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Photo Friday Night Leftovers

The mashup tradition continues here at the Lair...once again brought to you via Calliope's Photo Friday and Danifred's Friday Night Leftovers...
  • Photo Friday's theme this week is vibrance. The first thing I thought of when I heard the theme were the vibrant colors of summer flowers...but, I was a slacker this week and all of a sudden it was Friday and I didn't have any new flower pictures. So, I looked through the pictures I've taken recently and this picture said vibrance...the beautiful colors...the striking design...I love it. 
  • I have a high school student now. Marty has officially registered for high school and I'm wondering how in the hell more than 14 yrs have passed since I brought that baby home.
  • I think Calliope stole my mashup idea. Check it out. The link to her Photo Friday also takes you to her Summer Camp post.
  • I think I need to bathe my dogs in Nair hair remover. I vacuum the floor and, less than 2 hours after I'm done, there is more dog hair on the floor.
  • Did I tell you I have a cat on allergy medicine? Twice a day I have to give Joey's kitty, Butterball, an allergy pill. It's not much fun but it works. He's no longer sneezing and slinging snot everywhere.
  • The funny thing is the cat takes the exact same allergy pill as I do. Yes, I share meds with the cat. The medicine of choice for nasal allergies in cats is the same medicine I've taken for my allergies since I was 6 yrs old.
  • I'm watching Joey at Tae Kwon Do sparring class right now. Two of the adults have already injured themselves. I'm glad kids are more elastic and bounceable.
  • Late last week I hat 10 boys in my house at once...and my house and I both survived. The testosterone overload was almost unbearable though.
What kind of stuff is going on with you?

High school is mind-blowing.

I don't know why, but I'm cracking up over the cat on allergy meds. Perhaps because I have to take allergy meds when I'm around cats.

I would not want to have to give a cat allergy medicine. Yikes!

Lol on the cat allergy medicine. My cat takes heart medicine daily that is a human blood pressure medication. Once when I ran out of my BP med I took their heart medication. It was the same class of meds(beta blockers) and it held me over for a couple days till mine came in the mail.
Wow on the 10 boys at once. I thought we were brave that when I was a teenager Me, my dad and two best friends took 5 little boys camping for 4 days.

Holy cow with 10 boys. Yikes! I can't even fathom high school, but I know it will be here soon enough.
