Build it and they will come

Lets go

This Christmas was all about the kids, and there are a million pictures but this is my favorite, it is of the oldest grandson playing with his new Legos (they got every Spongebob set)  So Creative…The funniest quote of Christmas morning was made after the 4 mystery figures were assembled…Kalob says “Get them all on the boat to go to the island” and then Caden puts the girl caevman on the boat, then Kalob says “no, nevermind” and knocks her off, “there will be no girls allowed on the island.” after she clamors to the floor, he adds “wait, get her club tho, that is pretty cool!” -micnic

Looking Ahead

Why is it that I have(or I think I have) my best thoughts right as I am falling asleep?

Is it that blissful state of mind?  All I can say is I wish I could write my Thesis on the

I Don’t Need Your Rocking Chair–George Jones

George Jones "Rocking Chair"

I Don’t Need Your Rocking Chair

recorded by George Jones
written by Frank Dycus, Billy Yates, Kerry Kurt Phillips
I don't need your rocking chair
Your Geritol or your Medicare 
Cause I still got neon in my veins
This gray hair don't mean a thing
I do my rocking on the stage
You can't put this possum in a cage
My body's old but it ain't impaired
I don't need your rocking chair
I ain't ready for the junkyard yet
Cause I still feel like a new Corvette
It may take a little longer but I'll get there
Well I don't need your rocking chair
repeat 1 & 2
Retirement don't fit in my plans
You can keep your seat I'm a gonna stand
An Eskimo needs a Frigidaire
Like I need your rocking chair
repeat 1 & 2
My body's old but it ain't impaired
I don't need your rocking chair

Window In Time

What is it about old windows that capture our attention?  All the photographers I know love love love old windows that are drenched in character.

Maybe it is that old feeling of being in elementary school, maybe it is just all of the nostalgia that comes rushing back.

Ok, so what I just dated myself.  Hey I am proud of my age.  It works for me.

This old window is located in Franklin almost in the Historic Downtown District of Franklin.

Totally awesome! Caught my attention!
