Astute Observations

I guess there's not much going on today so here's a couple things I observed over the past couple days that I thought were worth throwing out there.

First, it's so nice when I spot something that pleasantly surprises me. Like yesterday, on the way to the mall, I was driving next to a big, burly, leather-laden, very hairy, very gruff man, the kind wearing a chain on his wallet, riding a motorcycle. He had a rider on the back of his bike: a tiny frog that looked like a children's "Leapfrog" toy still in its box, strapped on the very back. There's something about seeing the soft side of these stereotypical biker guys that warms my heart. I wish I had a camera handy.

Next: I was in Dillard's today and I picked up a beautiful hand-blown "Grandma" ornament with an inscription on it: "Grandmas are angels in training." There's something creepy about that. Maybe I am reading too much into it.

Finally: this headline goes into the, "I'm sorry?" file. (click to read on).

That's what I got today, Happy Monday!

Kinda like when you are down in Key West and you see all the Harley dudes, riding in carriages, and then you look a little closer and they are all holding hands...hmm..yeah..that's nice, too. :)
Oh..more commons..I LOVE Jerry S. I have seen him in concert, hysterical.

your right, I always seem to catch the biker leaving Toys R Us at Christmas with a barbie or a stuffed animal
