collectible truck

A mother and her son just came through my checkout line at work. Now this mother is clearly overwhelmed so I try to distract the kid- he can’t be more than 6 years old. I ask what his name is and he says “I’m Jensen!” and I kind of smile and glance at the mother who glances at me and we share The Look of Mutual Understanding and I wonder if this kid’s father knows his son was named after Jensen Ackles.

Curse you, snow!

After yesterday’s wonderful productiveness (seriously, with nobody else home I managed to write over 800 new words, which is a banner day for me) today is a snow day.  I have kids home with me all day, and to top it off, I have a dentist appointment.  Whee.

I got the garbage out to the curb, but I have no guarantee that the collection trucks are even on the roads today.  It’s snowing up a storm out there today.  If I remember, after I’m properly caffeinated, I might have to share pics.

Good Stuff Stands The Test Of Time

In the middle of busy Toronto, on a hot Summer’s day, I happen upon this wonderful collectible. 

Stopped took the  photo.

Then went and took a closer look. Saw the second collectible- old fashion selling of watermelons, flowers and corn.

Stopped took the second photo.

Loved it!

A testimony to the fact that 

Good stuff stands the test of time!

Old Fashion Social Media Never Looked  SO Good

kehlani: Tonight I wasn’t able to sing a single word because my voice is gone, but I brought out some surprise guests, hosted a dance battle AND a singing battle, gave out tons of free stuff, and then decided to meet every single person and take pictures !!!! And we collected THREE TRUCK LOADS of toys for kids who couldn’t afford to have Christmas, that meant the WORLD to me I love you guys see you soon!!!! Thanks for having me 103.5!!

Ideas for future dates:
  1. I dress in my suit jacket and you in whatever fancy silly outfit you want and we go to that pizza place with the portrait of Pavarotti and donkey photos on the walls. Go to the park afterwards and run as fast as we can then lie in the grass even though we are dressed fancy.
  2. Gorman dress ups then ice cream. Patting dogs we find and taking photos of us with the dogs and holding our ice creams and letting the dogs lick the ice creams too.
  3. Cinema double feature Jurassic World then Mad Max then we go on an unsucessful mission to find a really big slide. We find a tiny slide and it’s still really fun though.
  4. Make a whole art show in one night then make out when its morning time and we are covered in paint all over our hands and clothes.
  5. Find a truck and collect a huge pile of branches then bring the branches back to my house in the truck and pretend we live in the undergrowth but with sweet quilts and snacks and wine.
  6. Write a book of poems together and print it and then get cute breakfasts  to share and just hug eachother heaps.
