All Frags Bright and Beautiful - - -

.
It's Friday - - the day when all the Bright and Beautiful Frags come out to play.   Won't you join us????
 .
.
* * * * * * * * * * * * 
  .
.

More of my great nieces,
"Little Miss Prim and Proper" Morgan
.
And
"Miss Helter Skelter" Carson
Ride again.

Folks, this is ongoing

Look who arrived at my house this week!
A new Football King for my collection!!!
He came all the way from Pennsylvania,
And was sent this way by 
.

He has moved into a prominent place of honor
And is at home with
"Bucky Badger" and my

THANK YOU TAMI!!!!

Well just lookey here!

It appears I am not the ONLY Colts fan
Submerged in a vast sea of green and yellow
That makes up the Packer Nation of Wisconsin.

Cory, seen here at the library,
 was a good sport and let me take his picture
To share with y'all.

Yes, I DID walk right up to a total stranger
And ask if I could take his photo.

That's just the way I roll 
Just for YOU  my bloggy friends.
.

Looking back on good times past - - - 
At our 40th high school reunion.

I appear to be "entertaining" the group.
Some can take me in stride
While others can only shake their heads.

Story of my life.
.

I blogged about this reunion before - - -
.
.

But I just received these photos today
Which were taken by someone else
So they show me in the mix.
.
.

I thought I'd share them in spite
Of the fact that they are a rerun of sorts.

Deal with it, k?
.
.

Our youngest daughter, Korie,
Has these old crib springs
Hanging on her kitchen wall
Not too far from her refrigerator.
Note the two vintage aprons
Hanging on the left side.
.

I have this ladder,
standing beside my refrigerator,
And note the two vintage aprons,
Hanging on the left side.

Nope - - - neither of us knew the other
Was putting apron decor by the fridge,
Nor that the aprons would
Hang on the left side.

More proof that those genetic 
Apples fall right under the tree.

Not sure Korie wants to be like her mama,
But in some ways she most certainly is!

Her mama is happy and proud,
Korie may or may not be.

Last "bright" frag of the day,
And the most "beautiful" of all - - -

You might just be a redneck if:
.
      
You pose for your picture
Saying, "Get 'R Done"
AFTER you lost your front crown.
Goodness, this man would fit right in 
On the front row at a Willie Nelson concert!!!! 
.
Now please hurry over 
To Mrs. 4444's place
To see all the other
Bright and Beautiful Frags
.

I read about the nut cracker over at Tami's blog - you're famous over there. you took a pic of strange for your blog - wow you're a brave blogger

Karla @ Ramblin' Roads said...

I'm gonna do it! Finally! You have inspired me yet again. (Though I'm ashamed to say I didn't get tallies for vacation this time.) I got my fraggy post all written, but I'm going to wait to post it in the morning after I have a chance to take a picture of my mums in the daylight.

Sorta Southern Single Mom said...

Paint me green and call me gumby I finally found your "follow" button and am here before you came to see me!

I had a man stalk me around HT last Sunday because I was in my Jet's jersey. I almost said, "Go away creepy man, my Cowboy fan is at home waiting for me. Did I mention he lifts weights?"

That picture Fisher Hubby is HYSTERICAL! A little like you aren't really in in my family until Daddy lets you see him with his teeth out!

Tami said...

Is that a gallon of milk and cup of orange juice next to a TODDLER?? ;-)

I'd walk up to a person and ask to take a picture too. I just have that much spunk!

You are very welcome for the nutcracker. He looks happy!! :D

Joyce said...

Visiting from Friday Fragments today, although I did see your football nutcracker on Tami's blog earlier this week. Looks like lots of fun here : )

We're big Volunteer fans...they're better than last year, but still...this is not their year. We rooted for the Colts when Peyton played there. Once a Vol, always a Vol.

Enjoy your weekend!

Mrs4444 said...

Like mother, like daughter...awesome.

I would totally ask to take a stranger's photo, too. He looks like a sweetheart. No Comment on your Colts fan status.

Your nieces are adorable. I love the way Temperament shows up right away in life.

The reunion photos are really great :) The missing tooth shot? Hm. I can't argue with you on that one1haha

Ann in the UP said...

Not that there was ever any doubt, but FH is now officially in the Good Sport Hall of Fame! We tried to take a pic of GG at the Muskogee city limit sign with his dental work awry, but there was too much traffic.

Thank goodness!

LL Cool Joe said...

Ha ha, that guy in the library does look a touch embarrassed!

Seems you are very busy and having fun!

Erin said...

You remind me of my friend Patty sometimes. She has never met a stranger and would happily ask to take an unknown friend's picture, all the while telling them her life story. ;)

I love the picture of fisherhubby! Just in time for Halloween!

podso said...

Good frags! Amazing that genetic connection! Wonderful, isn't it?

Kathy ... aka Nana said...

Good for you ... I would be way too shy to ask a stranger if I could take his picture for my blog. Even if that stranger were wearing something with the Birds on the Bat far away from Cardinals Nation. But then IRL I'm SUCH an introvert.

LV said...

Enjoyed your day of fragments, but the little ones are my favorites. I am sure your daughter is very proud of her mom. She should be. I am not afraid to ask strangers about some things. You used good taste on this one. He was probably thrilled you asked. A shame fisherman had to lose one of his front teeth.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Keetha I always enjoy your Frags! This one is especially entertaining with 'get 'er done' hubby in the mix!

Have a happy weekend! Linda

Debby@Just Breathe said...

I saw Tami's post and I knew you would love it! Have a nice weekend.

Wayne W Smith said...

That is indeed a fun nutcracker!

Tettelestai said...

Hilarious! Your husband cracks me up.

Iowa had a rough game last weekend, I am curious to see how this week goes..do they have an Iowa Hawkeyes nutcracker do you know?

I really love your 'bright and beautiful' title. That was my grandmother's favorite book series and poem.

Tettelestai said...

We had a crazy mixed up 10 year reunion scandal. I am pretty sure that the planning committee was deposed.

Doreen McGettigan said...

The babies are just adorable, I was wondering about the milk and juice also:)
We are not very happy sports fans here in Philadelphia. Michael Vick, a disappointing Phillies season and NO Flyers:(
I had 4 teeth worked on today at the University of Pa. Dental School...oh the anxiety...your poor Hubby:(
Love the nut cracker!
Unbelievable about Dale Carnegie, that is ridiculous.
Have a Blessed Weekend.

nancygrayce said...

Wait!? There are strangers? My family always says I've never met a stranger! I'll ask most anybody anything.......but I think most people like thinking their picture will be on a big time blog....:). Ok they really don't know if we're big time bloggers or not.

Fisherhubby is obviously related to my older brother!

I love the nutcracker and how sweet was that?

Heather Smith said...

Love that you and your daughter are on the same decorating wavelength! Love the new nutcracker too!

Smellyann said...

Love that you walked up to the total stranger at the library - I would've done so too!! G. neices are so cute! Love the crib-as-apron-hanger too.

Life in a Small Town said...

The last picture made me laugh! What a sport for letting you take his picture (and posting it)!
Love the idea of the ladder and crib springs...very creative!
And the football nutcracker: LOVE.IT!

Unknown Mami said...

Well, that's an air-conditioned smile.

Keri said...

WHAT is Miss Carson doing with a gallon of milk on what appears to be the living room floor?!

Vidya Sury said...

I just love your photo, just above "I blogged about this reunion before - - -"

Reunions are wonderful and so are babies. So is Tami :D

Hugs!
