Nothing ain't worth Nothing, But it is free!
******** Automobile’s of Art:
I am not sure if you can make it out, but this is our front tire of the motor home when we were caught in a late winter storm in Montana I think. They closed the roads. The ice was standing out on the wheel lugs like beards.
The here and now:
Happy New Year
It has been a long time since I have been completely blank. I can’t remember as a kid ever having that problem. A kid’s mind was always cooking up something. Going to see someone, a game to play, just talking to my dog or trying to learn something.
I remember learning to plait three strips of leather. Shirley taught me to plait 3 ends, like mama plaited her hair. I was proud of myself when I learned to plait 4 ends.
I cut small leather strips and made lanyards and necklaces. Of course back then boys did not wear necklace or bracelets.
Funny how that paid off because growing up I could splice rope and lines.
Speaking of plaiting hair a few lines ago. I enjoy watching a mama or beautician (not in the beauty shop) but quickly make a ‘knot’ or some ‘tie’ on top of a daughters head and in seconds it looks neat. While home Sherece (who is a great beautician) noticed Stella’s hair was loose and blowing and in just a few seconds it was secure on top of her head. Then yesterday here in the park I saw something similar. I guess some girls and mothers have that knack.
A knot is not the right terminology I am sure, but that is what it appears to a boy. LOL
I am sitting here thinking and looked up at a little sign that DIL Corrine gave us that says:
“NOT ALL WHO WANDER ARE LOST”
Of course that is in reference to our ‘wanderlust’. But tonight as my mind wanders, Imma thinking….You are LOST dude!
Thank you for stopping by to exercise your brain. I hope it worked.
