Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

All Fragments Great and Small

.
Thought I might as well finish the title that I plagiarized for my last FF post.  Hope you'll join us in defragmenting.

Just look at this adorable little antique/collectible shop I came across this week!

It was small, but very great in wares.
.
.
* * * * * * * * * * * * 
.
.

These are our lockers at work.  Notice, MOST of them are plain and ordinary, except that ONE.
.
.

Yah, this one.

I wonder who THIS locker belongs to?
.
.

Well, it isn't all MY fault it's so flamboyant.

When I was given the locker, the fish was already on it from a previous owner.  I turned the fish into Nemo.

Then I put the Badger Helmet magnet under Nemo.

A couple of weeks ago some anonymous "donor" put the magnetic Badger note pad on.  Thank you Anon.

And just lately, some "Genius" with whom I work has discovered my blog and begun printing out and adding the zany shots.

Now I never know what I will find when I get to work.

Never a dull moment - - -

My Badgers have been stinkin' it up on the grid iron lately.  I cannot TELL you how this breaks my heart.

People who aren't sports fans just don't "get" this part - - - they tease and taunt when you're down.   That's like teasing and taunting when someone's loved one bites the dust.  

I'm just sayin'

I've done EVERYTHING I know to do to "hep" my boys win - - - 
.
   

Including wearing my Wisconsin slippers and Badger Socks that U.P. Annie lovingly knit and sent to me.

All for naught.

Now our QB is out for the season with a broken collar bone.

The back-up can't.

I think these last three games will be painful.

Never fear - - - I'll do my part to "hep" anyway.
.

I just found this great shot of our baby girl, Korie, and her Notre Dame grad hubby Chris.

"Ain't" they the cutest?

Oh - - - and Notre Dame - - - THERE'S a team that knows how to win, at least so far!!

And this is my ONE child that loves football almost as much as her mama does.  She "gets" it.
.

OK now, if there is a CUTER photo on the PLANET of little trick-or-treaters, I've never seen it.

Of course I'm prejudiced seeing as these particular trick-or-treaters are my own little grans.

WARNING:  If hunting upsets you, don't look any further in this post, k?
.
.
By hunting I mean the kind where little Bambi's are killed with bows and arrows and find their way to someone's dinner table - as the "guest" of honor.
.
.
OK - you've been warned.
.
       

This is Wisconsin.  Hunting and fishing are KING here.

Our friend Jerry, my former youth pastor way back in the day, got a 10 point buck with his bow.

It required lots of time sitting up in a tree stand - - - but he's a pretty happy camper now.

Jerry, not Bambi.

I bet Fisherhubby MIGHT get a buck if he just decided to HUNT on some of his days off instead of FISH.

That's it for this week's frags.  Some were semi-great and all were small.  ;-)

Lisa said...

Never a dull moment in you eclectic world Keetha. And Keetha, this is oceangirl.

Wayne W Smith said...

The locker decorating is quite fun!

Tami said...

Your locker sparkles because you are not a dull person!
Love the socks and slippers. You certainly dedicated!
I have to admit the deer picture grossed me out. I thought your nutcrackers were KING??
Have a great weekend!

Keri said...

I love the locker and I love the humor of the friend who keeps adding zany pictures of yourself to it. :)

I HARDLY believe the sorrow of a sports team can begin to compare to the loss of a loved one! Seriously, Mom, come on now!!!! ;)

Erin said...

I love the locker! It would be rather disappointing if you had a dull locker. And those are some pretty cute trick or treaters! Do we get to see a forward facing picture so we can see the cute costumes?

Theresa said...

Love those little trick-or-treaters:) They are too cute! Enjoy your weekend with all of the Football games! HUGS!

Ann in the UP said...

You must have some interesting co-workers who continue to add interesting items to your locker door. Do you need a remote camera? Do you already know the culprit, Anon? Does it matter?

When you come to work and see your locker door does it make you snort and spit with laughter?

Cute costumes.

Ellen aka Ellie said...

I was shocked each time I flipped over the UW-MSU game and found that nothing was happening.

Eek!

The LSU game will be on here this weekend. And since my son will be gone most of Saturday, that one may not even be consulted. I'm okay with that!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Your work locker is so fun! I like to bring personality with me and so do you!!! Love the pic of the Grands trick or treating...adorable! Sorry about your Badgers, some years are just like that. Hugs, Linda

Charlotte Huffman said...

Love your fragments. What a big buck! Happy Friday!

Lea also known as "CiCi" said...

Thanks for stopping by, and what a great FF post! My hunter husband got a huge 8 point this past Monday. He has been hunting 58 years and never, never grows tired of it. His stands are like hotel rooms and once he just hung of the side of the trees, but no more. Age has made him more cauious.

What adorable kiddos!

Yes, a lot of folks that that I had done my face with special makeup, but it was definitely a mask.

Happy weekend!

Unknown Mami said...

I love your locker and that it has become a group effort.

bill lisleman said...

I guess you've had enough fish so you want some venison now. I always thought it was traditional to try the deer across the hood of the car. Have a great weekend.

Laurie Matherne said...

It's LSU vs. Alabama this weekend. I dont' think it's going to be pretty for the Louisiana bunch. And the Saints (Aints) have been pitiful. At least you have the locker and the funny pictures to console you when your team loses. I wear my Saints jersey but I don't wear Saints socks because it's rarely cold enough to wear socks in these parts.

Tracy said...

I still don't like Notre dame football and if watched the game last week you know it wasn't quite the butt kicking the media keeps saying it was.

nancygrayce said...

I love your locker! What fun.......but it pales when I see those cute little trick or treaters!

Yea, I don't get the sports sorrow, but the Superhero does!!!

Sorta Southern Single Mom said...

My mother would be the one with the locker like that!

I am a Jets fan, so I feel your pain. I have a bright pink Darrell Revis jersey and my friends are all "I can't believe you wear that in public right now!" and I always reply, "He's hurt, it's not his fault they stink!"

I need some green and white socks.

GB DB said...

Perhaps you will inspire other lockers to get with the program, what a dull hallway with a bit of brightness. Have a great weekend and enjoy the football!

Doreen McGettigan said...

The kids are just adorable. What a great photo!
Yes, your daughter and her husband are so cute. We are all huge Notre Dame fans..one of the few teams we all agree on:)
Some people think it is a crime that with a nick name like Doe, I support the sport of hunting but I do.
Have a great weekend...see you next week!

traci's mixed bag said...

I think working with you would be so much fun!

I'm not a huge fan of hunting (meaning I don't think I'd do it) but I understand it's necessary, fun for people and it's culture. There was a time when people didn't have a butcher and going out and finding food, meant their family ate.

42N said...

Your daughter looks very much like my neice.

My boys probably have double stunk up the grid iron with today's loss to Indiana. They have Purdue, Michigan and Nebraska left. Here's to hope.

Vidya Sury said...

Sweet, sweet, sweet! :D Love all the photos. And no, I haven't seen a cuter photo in the planet than the ones of your grandchildren trick or treating! Hugs!

Martin LaBar said...

Nice locker. And, yes, Notre Dame is doing well.
