I don’t use my phone a lot when it comes to taking pictures, other than for business. I take before-and-after shots of repairs, snap a key tag so I can get the info off it later, etc. But once in a while I see something I want to remember, or send to someone, etc. I’ve not had my current phone for very long, but scrolling through the few pics on it I thought the following would be fun to share.
First of all, I stumbled upon this beauty in a Saint John parking lot. earlier this summer. I’ve seen a lot of old cars, but none like this one. The spare tire wrap with “Ford Motor Company” on it and the “trunk space” especially caught my eye.
It happened again. That chocolate bunny took my real tooth, then this replacement one just came loose and fell out. I was eating a garlic finger and realized something else was in my mouth. I took it out and my first thought was, Holy cow! Someone’s fake tooth got into my garlic finger!
I wasn’t planning on sharing work stuff, but I loved the dramatic change in this one. So… here you go.
This was either intended to be sent to my brother for the Leafs or to my sister for the Diet Coke. Either way, it didn’t get sent. But I think I was having a nice Saturday matinee at home. Might have been Jackie Brown (1997). Very good movie.
Joy and I like to go to McDonald’s for a coffee and play Yahtzee. This was a roll I got and I had to send it to my sisters. You see, when we were kids our mom and her sisters decided to teach us Contract Rummy. They did their best to explain the object and rules of the game, but we didn’t understand. Then they uttered the fateful “Let’s just play a few rounds. You’ll catch on.” If anyone is teaching you a game, I’m sure you know by now not to believe that crock! At the end of those rounds one of my aunts would look at the hand I had and say, “Oh my goodness, you could’ve gone out Troy!! LOOK AT THIS! I wish I had this hand!” Deuces were wild, so this would be followed by showing the other sisters my hand and saying, “Look at the twos! Look at the TWOOOOOOOOOS!” Hence, the pic was taken.
For those of you who might not know her, this is Twila. The meanest cat—and maybe oldest—in Sussex and surrounding areas. But she loves snuggling with me, and if no one else is in the house, she lets me put her up on my chest and snuggle like that. And when I saw her self-snuggling one lazy weekend, I just had to capture it.
Lukey took this pic for me. It’s been another great summer of NWE wrestling in good ol’ Miramichi. Would you believe my daughters have no interest in going to this?? Well, they’re missing out on Precious Preston getting his butt whooped by El Fuego Dragon, so, their loss.
I love this picture. Each “mouth mask” is perfect for each of my nieces. And it almost looks like my brother has his own mouth mask: a big blonde beard.
Congratulations The Next Karate Kid. This is your week.
And the Oscar goes to…
Best Actress: Hilary Swank as Julie Pierce in The Next Karate Kid.
Best Actor: I choose Arnold Schwarzenegger because his performance as Mr. Freeze in Batman & Robin was so over the top it deserves the nod.
Best Quote: “If I go any faster this thing will turn into a flying Cuisinart and we’ll all be diced into oblivion!” — Michael Caine as Hoagie in Jaws: the Revenge.
I really thought Jaws: the Revenge would be our movie of the week seeing as it is far worse than the other two. Still, all three are pretty awful, and the votes likely had more to do with which one would be most bearable to watch. I mean, who wants J:TR to be the movie of the week?? I was looking at the plot outline of The Next Karate Kid on Wikipedia and my favourite part was this: “When Julie survives almost being hit by a car by jumping into a tiger position…”
