Great Post Amy, glad you’re back. I’m doing good to just read the comments, must be getting lazy at the computer. Have an idea for a Post in September, need to get to work on it.....

Mornin’ Amy.

Took a chair out to the driveway last night to watch the meteor showers. Sat there for about half an hour and wasn’t disappointed. Kewl to watch the meteors streaking across the sky (okay, I’ve got a pretty low entertainment level).

I was hopin’ to catch one of those falling stars to put in my pocket to save for a rainy day. :)

I haven’t watched it yet - I just searched YouTube for Dave’s comment (catch a falling star) and saw Perry Como - does he sing it? I guess I better go let it download and see why it’s funny! LOL

Doggone it - looks like FR is under attack again today. :(

Almost every time I click to preview, send or refresh a page, I get a "Service is Temporarily unavailable!". Refreshing AGAIN brings FR back up, but I can only imagine how frustrating this is for JimRob and everyone else. :(

Perry’s recording was cute .... a typical Perry Como. This one is funny. Don’t know anyone except Perry but others are trying to jazz it up a little. :)

Mindflight

Bubbles of imagination, in our childhood daze,
Waft away on gleaming dreams in unpredicted ways.
Some see an orb and note the swirling bits of hue,
Another watches as its path drifts gently out of view.

The playful mind takes flight as gentle pinpricks of the damp,
Propel the thoughtful consequence in this jolly training camp.
Are these the new Montgolfiers, to teach us all to fly?
Or will they be explorers in another realm of Why?

They reach for understanding, and enjoy the search as well.
That the teacher likes the process is an easy thing to tell.
The mind expands when it has wonder in its view,
And the youngest minds are always most accepting of the new.

Weinie made me watch it and I thought the sea creatures were too cute.

BTW, I have always loved bubbles...and keep bubbles "stuff" for when my little neice comes to visit. We have learned that dish soap works as well.

Have you seen all the bubbles machines they have in toy stores to blow bubbles? I thought --Now kids can't even blow bubbles without something that requires batteries and does the blowing for them!

Had a great nap, lazy now and taking it easy for a while.
Spent most of the night (Till 3:30 AM) compiling data and sending it to a buddy for his group to dispense on the ‘Health Mess’ bill so they would have hands-on facts to support their questions at upcoming town hall meetings.

They are going to pass out copies of actual excepts collected from the bill so people can read the actual bill for themselves in a small enough bite so as not to go glassy eyed for page shock.

Maybe I can get back to the next book I’m trying to get written, only four chapters done so far in more then a month?

Why would you need a bubble blowing machine? It's like whistling, just pucker up and blow. :)

I buy the little bottles of bubbles. They are always fun to use when playing with the dogs or Mr Mittens.

Bubbles are cool, I remember we’d go up on the dorm roof at college and launch these 3-4 foot diameter bubbles from a loop of wire mounted on broom sticks. They would make these long snakes of bubbles that broke into huge globular bubbles that would float off from our eight story dorm roof. People would stop their cars to watch. One weekend day we had more then thirty people launching bubbles (and sipping bubbles from their beer cans.) The sky was literally a sparkle with the gleam of the sun off the thousands of bubbles floating around us. You are never too old for bubbles!

I buy the little bottles, too, but we spill a lot and I learned the dish soap works as well----if not better.

Next time you're there check out all the bubble machines. I guess the big ones would be fun at a kid's birthday party.

But.... they don't come with sea cretures. I loved the pics on the bubbles video.
