TBT: My Middle Son

EthanPineapple1024

This guy graduates from high school this weekend and then jets off to South Korea Monday with his little brother for tae kwon do training. Here are 2 TBT pictures taken June 11, 2011, right after the boys earned their white belts (the first belt you earn in TKD), Ethan is on the left. So proud of him and the funny, unique man he is becoming – the Hawaiian shirt and pineapple were his idea for his casual look during his senior photo session.

Give em a good belting.
 Say cheese. No, really, like this: CHEESE!

TBT: Les laines du chat qui pelote

I’m having a moment with cats, with black cats in particular. If you follow me on Instagram you know I visited the cutest litter of kittens yesterday, which includes two black kitties. I have my eye on Selkie, the boy, though my husband has said “No more pets!” and I know it would be slightly financially irresponsible to take on another when we’ve got 2 ailing elderly dogs. But still – a girl can dream.

TBT: Woman Knitting

I should say “Old woman knitting” but I’m feeling very age-sensitive myself so I’ll leave it as is. This image was sold on etsy from by shop in Brussels, so I suppose she’s probably an “Old Belgian woman knitting” but of course, we can’t be sure. “Old European woman knitting?” And what is she knitting? Is that a sock? Is this “Old European woman knitting a sock?” I suppose it could be a hat, but I get the impression that knit socks (or stockings!) were in more demand, they are, after all, likely to wear out much faster. This “Old European woman knitting a stocking” seems quite happy as well. Perhaps that’s the wisdom the knitter and photographer want to impart to us: knitting is the secret to happiness! A message I can live with.
