hangin’ tough.

Standard
unexpected fun
when my friend won tickets
  to a new kids on the block concert
‘the mixtape tour”
with other ‘retro’ bands of that era
salt-n-pepa, rick astley, and en vogue
bands i haven’t seen or heard
since i took my daughter and her friend
30ish years ago
not my dream music but great to be 
in the midst of a  really happy crowd who still loved them
and who knew i’d spend my friday night dancing with nkotb?
“keep calm and hang tough.”
-new kids on the block

dirty damsels – 2022 mud run

(i’m the muddy one in the pink, or the 2nd from left if easier)

we ran, climbed, crawled, carried weight, went over, went under, stayed the course, used ropes, tripped,

slipped, offered hands, got stuck in mud, slid underwater, crab walked, balanced, fell down, finished as a team

all with my daughter, granddaughter, and group of friends

not afraid of the mud

certainly challenging, but so fun.

mud-soaked.

Standard

finding the mud was such a delight

starting out slow

checking how deep it was with a stick

walking, then running, then jumping, then splashing

only one ‘quicksand’ victim who we unstuck

boots dumped out after

filled with water dirt wood chips, rocks, sticks and unknown mushy things

ending with

a pair of mud-soaked socks

drying in the sun

and so much tired fun.

note to this townie and his car

who’ve made so many smile:

Shout out to the person driving the smart car that looks like a little tykes cozy coupe! 

Everyone loves it and it brings all of the smiles and laughs every time you are spotted! 🙂

i didn’t go to the waterpark because it was raining, and i didn’t want to get wet. -jarod kintz

Standard

perfect day for a waterpark visit

 full of

action, sun, squealing

 and lots and lots of water

i’m at my best in the lazy river area.

 

“as a group, we’ve been banned from two water parks, one bar, and a dog-grooming salon.”

candyland.

Standard

the heat is on and a candyland championship game is in play

my absolute favorite game and the competition is tough 

there is no crying in candyland.

sometimes you run into lord licorice, but the end will always take you to the candy castle.”
