Something Happy

Today as we were driving past the VFD, we saw they had all their hoses laid out in their driveway, and a little girl in a sun dress was leaping over the hoses, one at a time, all the way across the lot.

Something Lovely

Last night at Sirriani’s Cafe (in Canaan Valley) we were seated near an elderly couple. (OK, we were seated near everyone–it’s a small place.)

When the couple went to pay, the waitress told them that a woman at another table had already paid for their meal. Just because.

And when they went to leave, since a pouring rain had started, the other employee got out a big umbrella and walked them to their car.

Do Not Eat

I got a new pair (set?) of Chums for my sunglasses, and was amused when I read the care directions.

chums

(Yes, the picture does show a head with a fork.)

I showed them to Michael, who was also amused.

Later, when I was taking off my sunglasses and hanging them up…

Michael: How did they taste?
Michelle: ?
Michael: We know you don’t follow directions, so how did they taste?

Footsteps

I had an odd little experience this morning when I first arrived at work.

First, the building where I work has two long hallways, connected by several crossways. But to make it easier, think of it as an upper case H.

I enter the ground floor of the building at the foot of one leg, halfway down the hallway turn onto the crosspiece, and then when I reach the other leg, take the stairs up to the first floor.

This morning, after turning from the main hallway into the cross way, I suddenly noticed my footsteps were strangely louder–as if I was wearing shoes with hard heels instead of the soft soles I have been wearing. (The sidewalks have been treacherous–one ugly slide and a fall in a single day put me off wearing my Docs until the walks are clear.)

I softened my step, but I could still hear the striking of my heels on the tile.

Then I reached the intersection and saw walking away from me a woman in boots, walking the exact pace I was.

She was not, however, my doppelganger, seeing as she was tall and thin with long, straight, blonde hair.

I HAVE FOILED GOOGLE

Bespin Clown Car

Not only were there no existing images of a Bespin Clown Car, apparently NO ONE ELSE ON THE INTERNET EVER MADE THIS MISTAKE.

What do I win?

The Ark!

We went to Frostburg to have dinner for my Dad’s birthday, and I talked my parents into stopping by The Ark!

Look! Here we are!

Ta DA!

20140726_Ark_004

We’re in luck! Clear skies!

It’s large, but it’s not THAT large. Guess that’s why the dinosaurs couldn’t fit.

I’m guessing this is the ramp for the animals to go down into the hold. Not much headroom for the elephants and giraffes.

All the cement is crumbling.

The footers (again, crumbling) were poured for a much larger structure than the existing steel super structure.

There you go! A closer look at the Ark, a structure that has provided hours of amusement over the years.

There are several more pictures if you click through to Flickr.
