Flip Flop fashion or not…

 

I still think of Fraggle Rock every time I write my Friday Fragments. The song remains in my head for at least three days after each post.

Friday Fragments are bits and pieces of your week that are usually brief; too short for a stand-alone post, but too good to discard. Collect humorous observations, “Heard” items, and other small gems (hint: a notebook is helpful) and put them together in a Friday Fragments post. Then leave a link to your Friday Fragments post with Linky Tools and link back to our host Mrs. 4444 at Half-Past Kissin’ Time.

Last Sunday John and I decided to take a motorcycle ride to the shore. It was a perfect day for the long ride. The beach weather was as close to perfect as it could be. As far as we could see along the shore line there were nieces, nephews and in-laws that we haven’t seen in a year. I didn’t take one picture.

From there we stopped into the Deauville Inn to meet up with my six-sister-in-laws for a drink and a little music and then to the Ocean City boardwalk for some Mack & Manco’s pizza. We crave that stuff.

The ride home was long. We may not have been able to get away for the whole week this year but the day was so needed.

Not Fun- I have been going through a series of surgeries on my jaw and yesterday at a routine appointment they found an infection and a random bone fragment. Ouch! Three more surgeries in the coming months and hopefully done, finally.

On Good Day Philadelphia this morning Jenn Fredd did a segment on some of the fashion items men dislike immensely. Hmmm. Platform flip- flops a big turn-off along with crop tops on women over the age of sixteen. Disliked by men the most is the one piece shorts romper. My flip-flops are flat. Do we agree? Do we care?

FLIP FLOPS

Apparently there is a bit of not so nice in me. On this week’s episode of 24 Jack finally caught up with a very dark and evil terrorist woman and instead of handcuffing her and turning her over to the CIA, he picked her up and tossed her out the window. I cheered so loud the neighborhood dogs barked. I might have had a bit of empathy for her if the evil biotch hadn’t cut her own daughters finger off and shot her son-in-law last week.

I started a new feature here, Writing Wednesday’s. If you ever felt like you had a story to tell check out the first post here:

Have a blessed weekend and dance your life away and save your worries for another day:)

Our annual beach week starts tomorrow—without us. We were so disappointed in how everything unfolded last year and I have taken so much time off from work this past year that we decided to take a break this year. We will be back next year.  John and I are going to try to get down for at least a day.

In August we planned a beach week in Daytona. It is so soon after losing my Dad, I just need to spend some time with my Mom in Daytona.

Change is good, right?

I entered the More Open Doors Contest  yesterday.  “What doors could $10,000 open for you?” You should check it out and good

Have you read Hillary’s book? The reviews are pretty bad and I am surprised that Sarah Palin’s book sold nearly 400,000 more copies the first week. Should I bother reading it? Look what I saw at a rest stop while driving back from North Carolina (Maryland)

My writer’s group friend and fellow Tate author, Toni McCloe’s book came out this week. She is a talented writer so I cannot wait to read Rude Awakenings. I am hoping to interview her soon.

I tuned in for the return of Kate +her eight last night. Wow, have those kids grown. They are all adorable.

The next 24 is making my blood pressure high but I am as hooked as I ever was.

Have a blessed week,

Doreen
