Picture Monday

Pardon me and my abnormal silence. I'm trying to rid myself of this horrible sinus infection. You know how you go and do what has to be done...only to get home, find your tank is empty so you crash? That's been me the past week.


A few things have come up that I want to share. Where I took pictures! Always Show & Tell here at the Edge.



Before I forget. Pikes Pickles and her oldest baby pickle are trekking cross country. Oh, the fun we have had exchanging text messages. Boredom in the car can be dangerous is all I'm saying.


Let me share something wild with you. You may not think this is, but I do. I noticed this dime on the driver's side running board of my truck. I didn't think anything of it until the next day. That flippin' dime had ridden all over town (up to 45 mph) and didn't budge. I picked it up to see if it was glued. Nope. So, I put it back. That dime rode all week long. Even on the interstate up to 78 mph. It was the Amazing Dime. Until this morning. I went to take The Boy to school and noticed it was gone. The Man had the truck cleaned this weekend and I'm thinking the cleaning duo took it as a tip maybe?






See it towards the inside straight under the H and the O. (I wanted you to have perspective.)



It was a real bona fide dime, I tell ya! I thought about putting another one there to see how it would fare, but it wouldn't be THE Amazing Dime. I think I'm sad about it being gone now. I think this is where my husband would shake his head and be bewildered over what entertains me.






What happens when you feel bad and don't wish to slave over a hot stove? Why, you find meat that the menfolk can fix on the Man Stove.

Not sure what the thought process is behind this picture. All I know is maybe I should have been scared of the over sized cooking tools?

It's another week in life starting. I refuse to think about all I have to get done at this moment. It'll happen soon enough.

Well darling, I hate to tell you this, but that dime is in our son's piggy bank. He saw it the other day while we were getting out of the Tahoe. So, no, my chieflett did not take it yesterday. But, I didn't know it had ridden there all week. Sorry.

snicker, snicker, and SNORT! LOL over The Man's comment. TOO funny! Too bad the dime wasn't specially marked so u could find it in The Boy's piggy bank.......course it probably wouldn't be 2 easy getting it back from him. U gotta appreciate The Boy having an appreciation 4 money....and a willingness 2 SAVE! Sarah would already be trying 2 figure out what she could buy for 10 cents. (eyes rolling.)

Sorry about Dimey, but at least he has a good home now with some other dime friends. Who knows...maybe he'll bust out soon for another adventure. Hope you feel better soon, sinus infections suck!

Paige....you sound like my hubby...he reads my blog when he's deployed to find out what's going on...on the homefront. I suspect that now that I have really gotten in to it ....he may visit while he's home to make sure he hasn't overlooked anything in all his "maleness"

Sugar said...

LOL!! Oh, how I've missed reading your blog! The dime had a good ride and is now in a good place. But how did the dime get there in the first place? Fate?

THE Paige said...

that's just it mrs. jill, hes deployed
i'm still here and talking to these people all the time!
haha

Heidi said...

I am so with ya on the Man Meat. Oh, that sounded bad, I take it back.... I am blushing now....

Thomas always thinks it's funny the things that amuse me, too. For instance, when we go see fireworks or Christmas lights, or anything like that, he watches me instead of what he's supposed to look at. He says I'm more into it than the kids. I bet The Man enjoys your little things the same way. He's not bewildered by you, he's in love with you!

And I'm glad the dime didn't fall off. Maybe The Amazing Dime will turn into The Amazing Million Dollars one day. lol

I am completely enchanted by The Little Dime That Could. Is it weird that I find that story so fascinating?

I'm pretty sure outdoor grills were invented by an overworked wife!

Lishak said...

What an awesome experience for the dime! Too cool!

It's always nice for the menfolk to cook away. I'll bet it was good too!

Paige darling.....take a word of advice from old Auntie Jill....even if my hubby was home...he would still need to read the blog to keep up....men need extra help in the listening department sometimes...we have to help them:)

You are absorbing wayyyy more than my hubby would even if he was here...love the man....but sometimes he forgets to put on his listening ears:)
