SQUINT! SoCS on Sunday?

Squint!  See if you can tell what this little kid is doing.

Preacher’s brat no doubt.  Showing off just like his father!

Always a day late and a dollar short…!  I may not be late for church today, but I know I am late for the SoCS post.

Is that you?  Is it procrastination or what?  Maybe someone did not inform you in time and so you missed the bus.  You might miss church today too, but you did not miss this photo shoot.

Church.  Keep your mind on your business.

The preacher is saying we need to focus.  I see the lady across the aisle from me is eating chocolate!  What a hypocrite!  She should focus on why she came here!

The man in front of me is sleeping–hmmm!

Oh, did I remember to turn off the oven?  What if…?

When we all stand up to sing, I will sneak out early and probably nobody will notice.

BLOGGING 101: Announcing a New Feature

Announcing a New Feature–The Things We Treasure

I see plenty of bloggers who have a Music Monday or a Thankful Tuesday.  Perhaps they have Quote of the Day Wednesday, Fantastic Friday or Stream of Consciousness Saturday, but I am not necessarily hooked by those prompts.  I have been tempted to create some regular weekly or monthly posting categories with enough variety to be valuable to my audience in the cyber world.

INTERPRETATIONS OF LOVE

Morning Stiffness aka Why My Neck Hurts
Morning Stiffness
aka Why My Neck Hurts

Five girls in a bed and the little one said, “Roll over!  Roll Over!”

Then the daddy left for work, and the mother said, “Move over!  Fill Dad’s spot!”

So they all rolled over and slept a while longer, then mother snapped a selfie and…

Self-analysis dictates that sleeping six (or seven) in a bed, no matter the bed size, is damaging to the health and alternative arrangements should be made, whether or not the kids have bad dreams, sugar ants on their pillowcases or pets munching scattered toys and food to keep children from sleeping all night.

After all, why did they buy beds for each kid?

MY HOME TOWN

I have traveled HWY 287 between Denver and Dallas many times with my daddy’s aunt when she was off from school during summer breaks, but mostly the rides were from our farm to church, school or grocery shopping nearby my hometown of Clarendon, Texas.

The highway itself was built with gravel taken from one of my daddy’s farms near a place called Hedley.  He originally bought what was known as “the old Mann place” so he could run Galloway cattle there, but with trespassers always leaving the gates open when they came to shoot quail, he had a hard time keeping his cattle contained.  Neighbors would call and say, “Your cows are out again.”  Or they would call to complain that our bull had knocked down one of their chicken pens.

Blogging 101: A New Day and a New Way to Blog

Today’s Blogging 101 assignment should bring newbies like me face to face with our deficiencies.  Like others, I know that the CSS option is good for personalizing the appearance and feel of my blog, but I fear it.  How about you?  A cheater link that looks promising is simply called TextFixer.com.  Perhaps this offers yet another crutch, and some of us old dogs need crutches.
