WWC #92: Happy Blue

About 10 days ago, I mentioned a few things that were keeping us busy, and a few people commented that I didn’t share enough information, so I will fill you in on a couple of them…

18 years old and rendered unwise

Here is MusicMan, 6 hours after his wisdom teeth were extracted. He had zero swelling and was eating hamburgers 48 hours later at a 4th of July party. (Granted, he was on Vicodin and Motrin at the time, but still!! isn’t that slightly abbie-normal?)

Here is also an example of the only use I have for frozen peas. If you find peas in my freezer, they are guarranteed inedible by use as a cold pack. Peas fresh from the garden = delicious; peas purchased in the frozen food section = only good for use as a cold pack.

And then there is the sad tale of an older sibling being kicked out of his happy crib to make room for the new baby brother…

Introducing SuperDad’s new ride, tenatively named “The Mule.”
Other names considered included “Blue Jay” and “Blue Job” (to keep with the B names used for our previous 3 vehicle purchases) I kind of liked Blue Jay but the last choice was bound to be prone to slips of the tongue and made MusicMan chortle at his father.

The Mule is blue and gray (photo taken Sunday at a Civil War Battlefield = apropos) AND it makes SuperDad happy when he drives it.

MusicMan is happy that The Mule has arrived because that frees up “Baghette” (little Bagherra, ala Jungle Book fame) for his own use… once he gets off pain killers and purchases some gasoline.

BLUE is my favorite color, so of course it makes me HAPPY— which is why I painted my shutters “cornflower blue“:

Some of you have already seen the über-awesomeness known as my front porch swing, but this might be new to others of you (SuperDad designed, built, and painted it blue for me):

Tuesday is the day for the Weekly Words Challenge. Tink makes me feel important by giving me assigments. (I love to tell people I have a photo assignment. It’s spices up the SAHM gig.) In case you couldn’t tell, the words this week were HAPPY and BLUE.
