Top of the Morning February 5


Hey - Hey friends and 1st Monday of February. I'm still wondering how January peeled through so quickly.  You? So much fun I collected to share today. Beginning with The cool art illustration. It's so happy and totally brings back childhood memories to me - yes, we had these types of sleds and they were head-first-dare-devil fun.  The wooden "steering wheel" kinda-sorta steered the sled moving at what seemed like mach speed. We also had saucer "sleds" which absolutely resembled something the size of a big garbage can lid - but had handles and happy enameled painted artwork where we sat down and got ready to fly down the hill. They were crazy fast and whirly-twirly - no controlling which way the saucer would go.  We just held on and giggled and screamed.  Better than a ride at the fair. I will say -- I think my sisters and my favorite "sled" was a big ol' inner tube.  Think tire inner tube from a big working truck - not - from a domestic vehicle.  These inner tube slider "sleds" slid fast, fast, fast!  No controlling what the inner tube wanted to do either.  Ha! We got bucked off plenty of times, pulled the inner tube back to the top of the hill for another white-knuckle-ride-and-slide down the hill. I don't recall ever getting too cold because we were having such giant fun!

Greetings fab readers and Hello Monday (!) first day of a brand new week. Another stellar line-up collection today! Beginning with: NO MORE FUN-PUNS ON HIGHWAY SIGNS Big fat boo on the no fun people who get to be the deciders of taking these clever, humorous reading pieces of fun away from us to read as we drive the endless miles to our destination(s). BOOMERS!  REMEMBER? I totally remember banana seats + tiny Bayer aspirin tins + 45 records my sisters and I cut around and off the back of cereal boxes --- and they really played!  It was super cool. Soooo -- miss the full service gas stations!  For those of us who have the memory - recall when -- rolling into a gas station,  hear the ding-ding of your car driving over a hose or something and the attendant came out, all cheer and smiles, puts the gas nozzle in the car's gas tank - cleaned the windshield, checked your oil, and even checked the air in your tires?  Gosh!  I sure do miss that wonderfulness.  Why did that have to go away? WINE CORK BRILLIANCE I love all of these ideas.  I think my favorite is using these recycled corks to "clip" a bag closed of potato chips or other packages that need to be closed up properly. CLASSIC WINE AND PAIRING Yes!  However, I'm certain that I want to explore all the pairings.  Not just my "sign" - ha HOW TO SOFTEN BUTTER WHEN YOU HAVE A BRAIN FREEZE - "WHOOPS! I FORGOT SORT OF MOMENT"
