Today I was going thru old emails and saw one I sent out that was sent back to me which gave me great inspiration today... it was cartoons and one of them was about cups of faith. After reading it, I drew simple cups of faith and grace on a 3x5 postcard. I will color it in with colored pencils later. Then from that I came up with the following poem:
My Halloween Wish for You
If I had my way,
EVERY day would be Halloween!
Then we could be a different character each day.
This is my Halloween wish for you...
Today I wish you...
warm cups of faith overflowing with love
as they grace your table as well as your life.
May you have oodles of hope in your sugar jar.
May your sweet tooth lead you to a forgotten treasure
or to new found ones.
May peace be underneth your pillow tonight
and bring you pleasant dreams
that come true upon the morrow.
Becky (aka theRAV), Don & Rhett
P. S. I am very proud of myself today for getting the email out instead of a late Halloween card; for my submissions to zazzle.com; for this post; for the poem. I am most thankful for it all.

We left after 8 pm after I won a pumpkin pie in the pie walk. Of course Rhett had to have a piece of it before going to bed that night.
I worked on my Autumn postcards for the swap. All I have to do is the written part on the back and mail them. I need more copies of the photo I'm using to send to my friends also. Plus fix my Halloween cards for this year.
From the scraps of the picture I used, I made 2 more concepts - thus two more new ideas. 2 views. 2 more abstracts. What is in the background of your photos you crop? Can you use them in some other way?
Hope you had as great a weekend as we did!
This is the label on one of my skirts...
Believe in yourself and you can do anything.
I submitted another photo of a "peach rose" to zazzle.com for a postcard and it was accepted. Genie liked this one, but she is not in the market for postcards. I did not think peach was her color.
Luckily we got off early so I could do my banking errands. I had two bills to pay also. I ran into my friend Jim. I bought a blouse I'd tried on to wear for our Halloween party. I justified it by telling myself I would wear it again to the Christmas party providing it is not freezing. I suppose I could wear my black turtleneck underneath it.
I still had to stop and get the rest of Jenny's shower gifts, a gift bag and a bow for one of the boxes. When I reached my folk's house to pick up Rhett, Daddy was handing me a thank you card for the church thanking him for all the cards and prayers they send during his eye surgery. Mom was trying to tell me about Aunt Pearl who's nose was bleeding again after her nasal surgery. Then Rhett was trying to tall to me ALL AT THE SAME TIME. I was a bit overwhelmed. I don't recall anything Rhett said during all this mass confusion. He did show me a paper plane he made. I took a picture of it but will post it here later...
I got pizza and hot wings for supper. I love Domino's thin crust pizza! We watched the last 30 mins of "Ghost Whisperer" and the new vampire show "Moonlight". I started getting a sinus headache. I know this because I could feel it moving. I watched "Vegas" which now has Tom Selleck on it. He had his old Magnum buddies on the show. Wonder if Genie saw it or knows about it? I took a hay fever pill & two Alleve and went to bed. I did not wake up til almost 12 pm and I had a baby shower to go to!!!

I sent these out to all my email buddies especially the quote collectors like myself. My friend Darryl from high school emailed me back to thank me for sending that one to him. He was doing a retirement persentation and was at a loss for a quote. So that as my good deed for the day. What good deed did you do today?

I received two really good, upbeat emails from my friend Bob today. Stephanie sent the "Roon Sirbees" email to me which is one of my all time favorites. I sent it out again. My good deed and laugh for the day combined
I fixed our new electric pencil sharpener this morning. I am good! The can opener worked last night so Don doesn't have to buy me a new one. He said he wasn't going to anyway! I just laughed at him. He knew I was in a better mood.
Rhett's poster is almost complete. Just have to finish it up tonight. He was coloring the sky with a indigo blue colored pencil. I realized we could add a cloud from the shape he'd shaded so we added not one but two. It floored me where that idea came from out of the blue. LOL We make a great artistic team.
I have to pay my JCP bill today. Hope to see my friend Jim. Then we have to go to the funeral home. We may arrive about the same time Don gets there from work.
I am so thankful for this day. For this good mood I am in. May it continue....
I forgot I submitted a button idea to zazzle.com and it was accepted! It was pretty simple... orange background with the word "VAMP" on it in a funky black font. It cost less than $2. I could afford one of them! LOL
Today I submitted another idea similar to the one above to zazzle. It said:
"VAMP That I AM"
Then I submitted a second one to the contest section that was a hot pink background with this saying:
"I'd rather be creating something to sell on zazzle.com"
My friend Genie said, "You are going to town with creative ideas lately." In case you don't know it or are not from the south, "going to town" is a southern expression. My friend Jimmy uses it a lot too.

There is supposed to be a way of paying for his lunches on line. It looks like I will have to do that now.
So I started fixing supper consisting of sausage, real french fries and biscuits. I'd asked mom to make me up a pan of biscuits since my head was still hurting so bad which she did. I bought her some sausage in return for the favor.
I told Don about the cracker incident. He took the warden's side which increased my anger another degree or three. I told him I should have known he would do that.
Don called his dad since it was his birthday. By then I was ready to cook the fries and sausage. We found out our friend Dallas in Indy had the laproscopy gall bladder surgery and was fine. Then his mule drug him down the road. He is pretty stove up from it. Need to send him a card.
I'd cut my fries in thin slices but used the wrong pan. I probably didn't have the grease hot enough so they stuck to the pan. I am going to throw that one away and get a new one. I dropped two pieces of sausage on the floor. Don just had to have a can of baked beans. The lid got stuck on my new can opener. I was not a happy cook at this point. Even kissing the cook wouldn't have helped. The can opener is one of those new fangled ones you sit on top of the can & it cuts around the sides by itself. I love it! Don finally got the lid out of it. Now I am not sure if it will work again until I try to open another can. I told him if it doesn't work, he could buy me a new one! Next I dropped the biscuits on the floor. I'm really surprised I didn't burst into tears. I guess I am made of stronger stuff. I am woman, hear me roar. It made me think of Genie when everything was falling apart with her. Also I thought of one of Rhett's first baby books Grover's Bad, Awful Day. Grover had a really bad day much like I had today. The moral of it is it has to be better the next day.
Too tired to work on Rhett's poster.We went to bed early.
This morning I was determined I would have a better day than yesterday.I was not going to let anything I was not get to me.
After yesterday I will never be able to look at a box of Club crackers the same again. Now they will always be a reminder of the cracker incident.
It seems that the warden in on a "Let's clean up Becky's area kick" even though he says he is not picking on me. Yeah right. Why is it always me? I have an enclosed shelf that opens out on my back wall. On top of it is an old color printer I no longer use. It was too frustrating to switch back and forth between two printers. I love my HP laser printer I use now. I have a pack of unused printer paper for the current said printer, my office supply catalog I order from several times during the month, and a phone book. Stuff I use on a daily basis. How can a man be so bothered by computer paper, supply catalogs and a phone book that are used daily? At least I look like I work in my area!
When I first began working here, my cubicle had two areas or a partion between making one tiny cubicle and an open area. I used to perform one task on one side in the morning and another on the other side in the afternoon. I even had two phones; one on each side. A few years ago, I don't know if he thought I was hiding in the back which I was not. I even sat out front if I had nothing more to do. Or he could not view EVERYTHING I was doing. Now the warden paid a local office supply company to dismantle the partion of the cubicle so it was one big open area which cost us money. He loves spending money on unnecesary things like this as well as banners. That took away some of my storage space. I could have stock piled in the back area and no one would have been able to see it unless they went into our breakroom and few folks did walk back there. Most of the officers couldn't care less.
The warden says the first thing you see when you walk into the room is the stuff on the top of my shelf. A few years ago I'd had a self stick matt I used to keep notes on, stuck to the outside of the shelf. He made me take that down because it was the first thing people saw. I thought it was cute myself. I placed it over anther shelf that can't be seen unless you look for it. I feel like he stifles my personality coming out in my work area.
We are having big wigs coming through the prison next month who will just probably say hello, shake our hand and leave, never giving us a second thought. So he is moving the printer to the break room behind my desk, getting me some sort of storeage boxes to put the stuff on top of the shelf inside. I'd asked for a filing cabinet because I really do need one. I share just two drawers out of another with the secretary and I have far more paperwork. I have three plastic storage boxes underneath a corner of my desk now. There is room for one more. Any more and I will have no place to put my legs.
He has pulled crap like this before, but I am not letting him get to me today. A stress free day is indeed a rarity. Still we can only hope for them....
The deputy warden was supposed to pick up some sort of storage boxes for me, but he returned empty handed after lunch. So I ordered another storage box from the catlog over the shelf he wants removed. I will just dig in it daily, but won't find any valuable hidden treasures there. Just the same old paperwork that was in a folder on the top of my desk.
I attempted to go on line to pay for Rhett's lunches. There was nothing at his school's site. I had to call the school who connected me with the lunchroom. I was supposed to go to another site which looked like it had nothing to do with his school. I had to register. Then I needed his student number which is his social security number which I don't know off the top of my head. Don does. So it made me feel like a terrible mom for not knowing my child's social security number. The lady also gave me an 866 number to call. It would not accept his social and said he was not a student in his current school system! Well, I should have called the lunchroom manger to begin with and could just hear Don saying, "Yeah. That's what you should have done." She told me to try the last 5 numbers of his social. Five? Didn't work. She said someone else must be using some of the numbers in his last four. She gave me another number to try which I did. Didn't work. Didn't work adding 00 to either numbers. Then it hit me, could someone else be using his ss# and that is why he owed $2.50? She said not but I gotta wonder... Before this I had called the 866 number and it said he was in a -$2.50 balance which may not have been credited for today. Or did he really owe anything? So I asked her if I could just send a check? I can so I will do that tomorrow when I go in the school yet again to make sure no one is using his social security number. Talk about frustrating!
I can remember when going to school was simple, easy and fun. Those days are gone.

Then the warden called me into his office to ask for the over time figures. He told me I'd "left a food product on my desk." "Food product?" I questioned him. Then he proceeded to tell me I left a box of crackers on my desk and Pepsi cans beneath it. I'd forgotten to take my empty cans home in my sleepy dramamined induced stupor on Friday. Now I rinse my empties out daily and take them home once I have a bagful at the end of the week for my Daddy to recycle so he will have something to do. The crackers in question had not been opened so they were sealed and there were no bugs in them! He came around the corner of my cubicle and I not only told him, but showed him the unopened crackers. He told me to put them in the cabnet in the breakroom like he's done other things before. I was really mad. I'd walked out of his office because I thought it was so ridiculous. It is not the 1st time he'd done something like this so I should be used to it by now and not let it get to me like I did. Maybe I should just laugh in his old, red face. By now my head is pounding. A migraine was coming on.
I told the supervisor who held up a box she has on her desk, but he doesn't say anything to her. I am sure he heard me telling her and I did use the word damn a few times. That was when I showed him the box of unopened crackers. I had his twitchy eye twitching like the man over Inspector Clueseau in "The Pink Panther" movies. Then he tried to be nice to me. That doesn't cut it with me.
I was working on the report he requested. I updated more than the over time so he couldn't come back and tell me to give him the complete report. He came to get the one figure because he probably thought I should have finished by then. As he looked over my shoulder (which is one of my pet peeves!) I told him I was doing it all. Then sugar wouldn't melt in his mouth fast enough!
He is worse than a woman. I should not have let him get to me like I did but I did. Taking Alleve helped, but it returned along with a bad case of indigestion. It just was not worth all that.
I told you about Wall Words at art.com in an earlier post. Today I learned of another similar site at http://uppercaseliving.com/. They had a cute example of a little boy in his room reading a book on his bed. Above him are these words:
Boy, n.: a noise with dirt on it.
(That would great for scrapbooking.)
Another one said:
Life is a journey and only you hold the map. (?)
living simply. loving generously.
caring deeply. speaking kindly.
go out and feel everything
step into your dream
live and laugh
have your ever after...
Received some good emails today as well as those quotes... Hope you had a better Monday than I did. But I got my pictures to upload so today was not a totally bad day. I know that I am not alone. Others work with crazy people too.
Happy Fall, Ya'll!

I stopped to got crackers on the way to work. The convience store clerk said she'd order some Mrs. Freshley's snowballs and caffeine free Pepsi for me which made my morning. I stopped at another gas station to see if they had any snowballs, but they didn't. I'd left my big bag at home with one inside of it and I felt naked without the bag like I do when I forgot to put on my rings. Upon getting out of my car, I saw the above dual colored leaf so naturally I took a picture of it. I thought it was neat with the rain on the road. It would be good in my Autumn postcard swap also which I need to make this weekend and mail.
The dual colored leaf is a lot like me.... Some times I am one color. Sometimes I am another but I like to think my colors compliment each other. One side is Becky. The other is Rebecca.
I fought off the effects of the Dramamine most of the morning. Nothing really held my interest for very long. I didn't even feel like drawing. Just wanted to sleep. Next time I'll wait to take the Dramamine and if I do that, I may still get bus sick. I am glad Rhett has a strong stomach like his Daddy.
Today marks the beginning of hunting season. Don says he is not prepared for it yet. It rained this morning so he couldn't go. Maybe someone is trying to tell him something... I found it funny it rained and he couldn't go. Sick sense of humor that I have.
May the things you find today have a dual purpose for you.

I have had two negative dreams about Ralph. One years ago where he was so cold and ugly to me. I could not shake that dream. I remember going to see a Richard Pryor film about his latest stand up after he'd been burned. The dream bled over into my mood the entire day. I couldn't get into the movie because I kept remembering how awful Ralph treated me in the dream. I did not find the show funny at all. It was a waste of my money.
In this recent dream, I saw him at my local library. He was with 3 or 4 other strange looking guys leaning towards the homo look. He was not very friendly towards me at all which really hurt my feelings especially after the way we supported him. He and his friends were playing some sort of game on paper. The paper was left in the corner of the card catalog. When they left, I went over to get it. I left my purse. When I came back ALL my credit cards had been stolen! Of course I woke up immediately relieved it was only a dream. I am sure my reunion last night had something to do with it. I am seeing being accepted in my dreams as well as my art work. I had not thought about Ralph in ages. No one at the bash reminded me of him. Not even the music they played. Now Gary was a different story because they played "You'll Never Find a Love Like Mine" which was our song.
I wondered what the library part meant, but I haven't a clue where my dream dictionary is located. Am I spending too much time at the library? This is the 2nd one I have had about him where he is not his friendly self as he is in reality. Who knows? Rhett would tell me it is only a dream.
Well, I had trouble with some of the pictures going on the blog as you can see for yourself... Then I thought maybe the pictures were not meant to be on here. I kept playing with it until I at least go the photo of the two of us on it in the right hand corner of the blog so I am somewhat content.
This week has been a blur of emails of snapshots of last weekend's bash sent back and forth among classmates. Most have thanked me for sending them. My fellow classmate Darryl took 3 of Don and I which he sent along with 12 other pics! He got one of me doing what I typically do now... look over the rim of glasses at close up objects which shows I am getting old, but not old enough to need bifocals yet! I couldn't believe he took so many of us. I would love to be able to upload them and print them, but not sure exactly how to do that yet. Darryl helped some and I am sure he would instruct me more if I asked him.
I have not done much artistically this week except finish the Bird Abstract Sunday night which took about an hour to do. Rhett was "supervising" the pieces I added to it. I took it to have a color copy made yesterday, but the black bird in the bottom did not turn out well due to the foil wrapping paper I used for the wing. So I learned something.... I should have already known - not to use shiney objects. I remember that from my art teacher in college.
I did take one photo this week. Once again Rhett inspired me. He left a pile of colorful water balloons on his table. I took that with the flash and really liked the way the colors turned out on it. I submitted it today to zazzle.com as a postcard and a stamp. They accepted it immediately. Zazzle had created my submissions as a slide show which really made my day. I have the link below... hope it works. If not just go to zazzle.com. In the search box, type in theRAV and it should bring it up for you.

After weeks of deciding what to wear, a few days beforehand, I decided on this peach colored outfit to wear to my class's 50th birthday bash. As I was in the bathroom putting the finishing touches on my my make up, Don was standing in the doorway looking at me. "What?" I asked him. "Are you sure you are 50?" he asked me. So it was worth it all right there.
We dropped Rhett off at mom's, arrived a few minutes after 7 but I really did not see anyone I knew on the porch of the house the bash was being held in so we waited in the truck. A few minutes later a car pulled up behind us. It was my friend Iris and her husband George getting out of their car so we got out and I hollered, "Hey!" to her so we went up the steps together after saying our hellos. Iris looked really good. We said hello to the people on the porch. One guy I did not recognize until he told me his name nor he me until I did the same but we hugged each other. He went on to play pro ball.
Iris and George were standing on one side of the porch and we were on the other. She told me I need to be on her side so I could tell her who everyone was. If I had done that, I would have felt like that person who stands besides the Queen and whispers who is approaching next! Believe it or not there were some folks I did not know. I did see one guy I'd forgotten I'd known since elementary school. I wouldn't have known who he was if I had not read his name tag. He wouldn't have known me if he had not heard me say my name. Have I changed THAT much? Not everyone has my elephant's memory.
Penny's friend Debra was there with her husband Kenny. Debra was not in our class and is younger than us. Later on a free drinks later, she still kept telling everyone she was not 50 and the youngest one there. If I had been around her, I know she would have gotten on my last nerve. They let Kenny lead the prayer for our meal. Maybe because he was the oldest one there.
This one guy who is in the 3rd picture kept saying, I am Cathy's date. Okay. He told me that to my face. Then he told me his name and he was the guy I went to my senior prom with. I screamed his name, grabbed him and hugged him. I told him he looked just like his father now. He and Don seemed to hit it off. Tommy and his sister Cathy were the life of the party and kept us laughing all night.
Cathy is a jv cop. She just got her tazer. In order to carry a tazer, you have to be tazed. Everyone asked her what that was like. She said and I quote, "It lit my ta-ta's up." We all just shock our heads. That is Cathy.
We had steaks that were good but full of gristles. If I had put all the gristles in my napkin, I would have run out of napkins. That was my only embarrassment. But what do you do when you have a gristle?
Iris and I were able to talk about some things. When it got to the point where I couldn't hear what she was saying, I made Don change seats with me. Iris left rather early and I probably felt ackward after they departed. It is better to have somewhat close friends there.
I did have one lady get a little too close for comfort in my face. I was wondering if she was checking for wrinkles! Another said I didn't color my hair. Duh. I told her, " No, that I had seen Walkie recently and decided against it."
It was fun listening to stories about crazy classmates. It was great seeing everyone again. Still not sure if it was worth $50.
We went to Country's on Broad for supper which is an old remodeled bus station complete with an old Greyhound bus attached on the outside. There was an elderly lady who was rather loud as if she were deaf as a doornail. I knew I'd seen her before.... It finally came to me that I'd seen her at another restaurant when I was working downtown. She was trying to eat chicken salad while her son was preaching about something that day. She told him to "Shut up!" It was kind of hard to forget. That night she was the loud one. She also had to go the restroom which is located up about three flights of stairs. Her son had to help her up the stairs.
I looked at Don and said, "This place is not wheel chair accessible." If William came here, he might could find a seat, but he would not be able to go to the bathroom. It really got me to thinking.... Later I emailed this account to William. I volunteered my help in making the public aware of this problem. After all, the next time our class has a gathering, more of us might be in Williams's shoes as well as a wheel chair but I hope not!
Rhett wanted to go to the bus as usual. There were skulls decorating the place. He walked slowly up the steps leading to the bus as if he were approaching the guillotine. When he got to the top step, he turned around and came back. I jokingly told Don, "There must be a skelleton up there." Sure enough there was! This is him complete with driver's cap but no torso. So I had to take a picture of it. I also sent it as an email & everyone thinks its scarey but I find it funny sick person that I am.
We went home to watch the new vampire show "Moonlight".
Friday, October 12, 2007
When I arrived at his school, I had to ring the doorbell in order to be allowed entrance. The Vice principal told me I'd made it in the nick of time. I was nice, but they were going to give me my child!
On the way to the car, Rhett wanted to know why he was going to the dr. I told him he was not up to date on his shots which I shouldn't have said. He didn't want a shot. He remembered how that felt and didn't like it because it hurt. I told him I was sorry about that. He hardly drank any of the tea so I knew he was upset. There had been an outbreak of chicken pox at the school. he had that when he was a baby. I figured I would have to provide a current shot record next and if his were not up-to-date, they might let him attend school. I tried to explain this to him.
We get to the Dr's office. I had to stand in line to sign him in. I was told as I was writing his name that there was no doctors present today. The husband and wife team had an emergency. Now I am mad because no one called me. They told me they did call me, but they called the home phone. DUH. I was not at home. I was at work. I was not a nice person. I raised my voice and I told them they needed to put in his file to call me at my work number. They asked for my cell phone number also which I rarely have turned on. So next time they will call me on my cell first and it won't be on! I told them I'd gotten off work, pulled him out of school and they apologized again. The lady tried to placate me by telling me I could come back whenever it was better for me. I told them I was not pulling him out of school again in order to be there by 3:00.
When she asked the lady at the computer to give me the next appointment after 3, I could tell she didn't like it one bit, but at that point I did not care. So they gave me one at 3:30 on Monday, Oct. 15th. (My friend Bonnie's birthday.) In my angry state, I left my book I was reading on the counter. I didn't discover this until we got to mom's. I called them to see if I left it there and I did indeed. Luckily the dr's office is close to mom's so I went back to get it. The title of the book is California Demon by Julie Kenner. I am sure when they read the title, they thought, "No, she is an Alabama Demon!"
The air wasn't working in the car again. I had a letter to mail, a bank deposit to make. The air started working so I didn't take it to an air place. I caught up on my blog. I learned how to remove unwanted pictures off of my blog. I feel sort of dumb for not figuring it out before now.
I saw an old classmate who is in a wheelchair and told him about the birthday bash.
Don thinks the air problems with the car are electrical and going to the air place would have been a waste of time and money so he thought it was good I didn't go there.
The heat wouldn't come on in the car this morning. The temperture dropped into the 50's. I guess if I tell Don I will have to start driving his monster truck, he will get it fixed.

Whatever beauty here on earth is seen,
To meet the longing and perceptive eye.
Is semblance of that source divine,
From whence we all are come.
In this alone we catch a glimpse of Heaven.
My friend Anne wanted to know my interpretation of this question...
Where does happiness come from?
At first I said I thought I may have to ponder this for awhile... but my very first thought was "Happiness comes from within." So that is MY quote of the day and you may quote me on it. To me, it is doing something you really love to do like I am doing with my art now. Its the little things that mean a lot to me and make me the most happiest. It is finding lost keys or something you couldn't find for a long time. It is not a bouquet of roses. It is the one flower Don picks for me from our yard and brings to me with a kiss. It is my child making us laugh. It is the sound of my child's laughter.
Since I am trying to watch my pennies, I would probably take the word "Create" and it paint it somewhere I'd see it every day. Not that I really need it with all the creating I have been doing lately! Just another idea I thought I'd pass along....
So I will leave you with a quote of the day from their catalog:
"The ecstasy is so short
but the forgetting is so long."
What would your wall word or words be?
The first one was Rhett's idea and he wanted me to take a pic of it so I did. A lot of our friends thought it was cool so I submitted it to Zazzle with that title. They accepted it. After uploading it and submitting it, it looks sort of blurry so I will probably reshoot it. When I told Rhett it had been accepted, he wasn't the least bit concerned. He was asking how much it cost to change your name. He wants to change his to Drake from "Drake & Josh". I told him NO!. He was Rhett now and always would be.
I got Rhett this frisbee like disc. Its cool. We broke it in on Columbus Day since we were both off from school and work. He also tried to take my head off with his remote control flying saucer Stephanie gave him! The bugs were eating me up so I went inside. Later we went to Applebees's for steaks.
Just call me "The Watch Lady". I love watches! I am the Emelda Marcos of them. I haven't actually counted how many I own, but I do have a lot. My friend Anne says its because I am a Capricorn. I am the keeper of time. The 1st one is the blue velvet one I got for 50 cents. The 2nd was only $2 and came with another scarf. Its sort of hard to tie them on your own hand so I may give them as a gift.
By the time we arrived at the fair, the sun came out. We whizzed by most of the usual stuff we have seen over and over and over each year. I did find something new... A man had thin wooden matts for 5x7 frames he'd made. It had Rhett's name carved in the bottom of it. It was $14.95. I started to walk away, but his name is hard to find so I bought it. I also got a magnet which will have to be mailed to me in two weeks. Don cannot believe I trust these vendors as I do, but I have never had a problem in the past. Now I regret that I didn't buy more of them. One for my folks and Don's folks for Christmas presents. Don thought the price was too high. If he'd buy the right saw, he could make them for me. Yeah, right. But alas hunting season is upon us now so I can forget that noise!
Well, these are not in the order I took them - not that it really matters to anyone but me being the stickler for details that I am. I don't know how to turn the top one of Rhett (without Picasa's help).
Rhett just had to ride this little train which I told him he was too big for this type of thing. It cost $1 a person and we just went thru a small part of the town. Afterwards he complained with his back hurting from when we went over a speed bump. I was afraid it was his kidneys.
The first picture Rhett took in the bathroom of the Paradise Cafe. Because I had on brown and the wallpaper was done in tiki, I thought it would look better than it does. I don't like my expression in the picture. Ever the critic. The second is a picture Rhett took of the table cloth at the Paradise Cafe where we ate lunch. His was better than mine so we deleted mine and kept his.
