Gosh, but once upon a time the Memorial Day weekend seemed so far away. Used to be, any 3-day weekend was cause to hit the road ... but hopefully, I've hopefully grown wiser.
...Tired-er for sure!
Time's a-wastin'; let's get this week's edition of Friday Letters on the road!
Dear Blog pals,
I'm a little taken aback - but flattered all the same - by your belief in my creative 'powers.' I've always been a 'color inside of the lines' sort ... shying away from projects I wasn't sure would come out looking Just Right. ... but I'm going to take your words of encouragement and run with it. (The 'ish' room thanks you, and so do I!)
Dear Kelli Scissor-hands,
It's true. I never cared for the way in which you styled my hair these last 8 years. (Betcha didn't know, I always kept a cap in my car until I could get home and stick my head under the faucet.)
But I never expected you'd leave me.
'Not sure if I'm more upset about having to find a new hair guru - or because YOU'RE getting to go live in Dallas and I'm not.
Dear Mr. Benz,
It's a safe bet I'll never own one of your products. But that doesn't stop me from looking. And coveting.
May I weigh in?
Classy cars deserve classy paint jobs like 'cashmere' or 'obsidian.' I just can't wrap my head around the C-class driving around Phoenix, whose color scheme resembles the aftermath of somebody having consumed too much cheap wine.
I've no way of knowing why you had that 18-wheeler pulled over on I-10. 'Not a big deal, but I don't recall having seen that before. All this time, I presumed the Highway Patrol pretty much looks the other way when it comes to letting the big rigs roll. No?
Dear Mr. God,
You know I was feeling unusually discouraged the other morning. I can't recall what it was I asked .. but darn if the very next moment the cloud cover opened a bit and allowed this pretty spot of sunshine.
|That WAS you, wasn't it?|
Have an amazing weekend, everyone!
What do you say, we do our best to ignore the unrest and anger ... and just pause to give thanks to those who gave their all.
Hugs from Phoenix,
