Raining week- end and An American Leg

Lots of rain but nothing compared to our neighbors South of us.  Hoping things get better in those flooded areas.
I celebrated National Scrapbook Day at Archivers all day yesterday.  SO good to finally get out of the house for a day of scrapping.  I spent way too much money.  I am exhausted today.  Still trying to get that tooth extraction healed.
Today we took K. Bug and Goose to see "How to train a dragon".  A little scary for both.  Goose crawled up in my lap and took a nap.  K. Bug ended up on Grampy's lap during the "nest" scene.  K. Bug had $10 in her pocket to buy those crazy shape bracelets.  Well she lost it.  Grampy was still going to get the girls some but they were sold out.  One place had a three page waiting list.  Are you kidding me?  Yesterday the girls went to see the local school production of Oz.  So they had a fun, rainy week-end.
AMERICAN LEG STORY
Do you believe in "signs".  I had three of those in the past 24 hours so wanted to tell this story.  The star of  the movie we saw today had an artifical leg.  A man walked into Archivers with shorts on and an artificial leg.  It's so amazing to me how well people can walk in these.   They walk better than I do.  And God Bless them, they should.
Okay, here we go.  My daughter and son C. were in Leadville, Colorado having lunch.  C. was 7, maybe, but more like 4.  A guy walked in with shorts on and a wooden leg.  It was painted red, white and blue with stars on it.  C. stares.  Have you ever had that feeling that something very embarrassing is about to happen?  We got C.'s attention and tried to explain.  He was silent for awhile and then it happened.  Rather loudly he says, "Well, at least it's an American leg."  Have you ever know that you should never laugh at something but you totally loose it anyway.  I don't know if the man heard us.  I still think of how funny that was.  I told my daughter that the man had to want people to notice with the way it was painted.  God Bless him as well.
I'll see you back on here tomorrow.   ((((HUGS)))

Bless, kids say the funniest things! I once pointed at a ladies head (she had jet black hair with very white roots showing through) and shouted "Mummy look, that ladies hair looks just like our dog!" Needless to say, I was dragged away by my wrist quick smart!
