Daily Prompt: Invent a holiday!

Assignment: Invent a holiday!  Explain how and why everyone should celebrate.


If I were to invent a new holiday it would be called “shoe day”.  Every year on shoe day people all over the world would celebrate the diversity of this big blue marble we all live upon. It would be a holiday when all of humanity would open their minds to how others feel, what others might be going through, and especially how it would feel to “walk in someone else’s shoes”.

This holiday would be a good exercise in compassion & empathy. Employers/Companies would be encouraged to give their employees the day off to rest and contemplate the world around them.

It’s a big world and life can be all too fast paced. Think about it. When is the last time you stopped and took the time to think about how someone who was born with a birth defect, has a speech impediment, someone whose lost their job because their company closed down, a child who was suddenly orphaned, a person who is denied being able to say goodbye to their dying loved one might feel? Maybe to have a day of solemn contemplation would help people to be less judgemental.

Shoe Day – A Day of Worldwide Empathy and Contemplation.”

My Official Halloween Shirt


I bought this last year but didn’t get to wear it.




Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreign

“FOREIGN Object(s) Found in Detroit Suburb!”





Well, it’s been the HALLOWEEN Party weekend and I saw and have been seen, bought the t-shirt (okay the cap rather), swatted and crashed half a day (clearly I should get out more) from exhaustion.

Made a special commemorative photo and that’s a wrap until next year for me!


Swat Team Member. Have you been swatted today?

Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouettes

Dedicated to LGBTQ youth everywhere. You’re not alone.

Weekly Photo Challenge: BIG

Want vs Need

Ever want to tell the parents in your head to shut up?

I can hear my dad now yelling saying,

“You NEED water!”, “You NEED employment!”, “You NEED food!”

“BUT You don’t NEED that!!!!!”

*whispers*  (But it’s awesome and I kind of do…)


ps. I’m not alone. While searching for this toy I found this guy whose blog I’m now following. He seems awesome too!


Weekly Photo Challenge: Happy x 9

1. My doggie Basil

2. Sissy @ Halloween last year

3. My little stalker, Autolycus (Tolly)

4. Evan in Nawlins holding a baby gator 🙂

5. Part of my brother’s landscaping which reminds me just how alike we really are.

6. What you get when you mix the ET Med-lab Playset with a Silence and the Doctor in a straight jacket! (Part of my collection)

7. A couple of my favourite elephants, We spent 2 months in an insurance paid hotel after hurricane Gustav destroyed our house and I made sure my 2 friends here stayed with me rather than in storage.

8. My favourite restaurant in the world. I can only eat there when I visit my hometown of Houston, Tx.

9. I probably should have used this photo for last weeks challenge because this is my truck, it’s in pristine condition and it’s all paid off now so it’s all MINE!

These are some of the things that make me happy.
