Back home in my town, trollin my old familiar places. My buddy got to hang with me all morning which was a nice little treat. Went to two of the regulars, one new Goodwill Select that manifested while we were away and I took Delena to an antique store I kinda dig on the "strip".
My buddy's cheaper than the old timers in my family who still wear overalls over a pressed button down to a fancy event. Anything over $2 is "ridiculous" so she can only be my part time runnin buddy.
Ava insisted I take her picture by the boots. Gladly obliged that little cutie.
I got freckles so I appreciated this doll havin some of her own sprinkles. Never see that, made me glad.
Found this wonderful, wonderful lamp at that new Goodwill. Sweet as can be :)
Yeah, I don't have an answer for this one. Sometimes, things just happen and you go with it. Maybe I envision my son all grown up as this. Maybe his daddy would have a lot different to say.
Got a few books on the cheap. This one is a compilation of family stories and songs by Margo Thomas. Good sweet stuff that we'll be readin in our bedtime routine.
In one story the young protagonist shares a room with her older sister, accidentally damages her beloved David Lee Roth poster, tries to cover it up, and dreams of a new family where she's an only child to rich celebrity parents who hobnob with Lionel Richie.
We can all relate.
I love this poem about how people's "problems" with others really begin in their own mind. In a nutshell, intolerance stems from ignorance. Good stuff for these little ones to lean into.
Some pretty forward illustrations.
Early 80's I love your flair. It made me who I am today.
