Fall is still a month away but it feels like it rolled in quietly as we slept. This morning I woke to a little rain on the ground and the temperature at 16 C. (61 F.) I am wearing a light cardigan and have a blanket on my legs and my fuzzy socks on.
Today I was watching a Netflix documentary and the were showing the inside of a bar in Texas. Everyone was smoking. Are you allowed to smoke in public places in the U.S? In my province you aren’t allowed to smoke anywhere. No smoking in any public place including restaurants, bars, care facilities, hospital grounds or school grounds with the windows closed. You can’t smoke on beaches, playgrounds or in your car with anyone under 16. It is even illegal for stores and shops to have tobacco products anywhere in sight. I guess I was under the impression that the laws were same everywhere. I am interested. What are the laws where you live?
My daughter posted this on Facebook and it made me laugh. Not only does it most definitely describe my life but it is Frog and Toad. I adore Frog and Toad and read the books over and over to my kids when they were small. We read them so much they eventually fell apart so last year I ordered the entire treasury in hardcover.
A few days ago I found this picture of my mom. She was about 16 here. The cool thing about all these old pictures is being able to take a picture of them and how clear they come out. The original of this is smaller than the inside of my palm, a 2×3, but when I take a picture I can see all the small details.
It’s like this one of my mom’s girlfriends. I couldn’t see much on the original but I can here. Isn’t it cool? It was taken circa 1961. It looks like something out of Grease. So, moral to the story, if you have any old photos try taking a picture of them and uploading them to your computer. You’ll be amazed at details you never noticed before.
