the worlds best tie

First and foremost…..

do not let your kids do drugs…because this is what they would look like:

but luckily for me….he just doesn’t like having his photo taken….otherwise…we would be in a little trouble.

Not that there is anything wrong with a little marijuana….

i mean….

if you can make it legal so that it’s needed for medicinal purposes…

then yeah for those that need it.

I know for a fact that my lower back has been bothering me lately.


how did i get on the topic of the use of illegal/legal drug use ….i don’t know…so back to the topic at hand.

Mason does not like having his photo taken….and he pretty much knows now that any decent photo

is going to end up on the world wide web….

but nothing a little cold hard cash can’t cure.

Last night Mason had his second orchestra concert of the school year…

and in the note that came home from school…it was noted that boys must wear a tie or

something a grandfather would wear a sweater vest.

So i hightailed my arse down to the mothership….


i mean Nordstoms….

where i knew i could find a nice looking tie.

A $36 tie.

A damn fine tie if i say so myself.


who the hell pays that amount for a tie in the first place…right.

Well…good thing i kept the receipt…because who knows….you might find me back at

customer service tomorrow because the tie didn’t work out.

Just kidding.

I wouldn’t do that.

I love Nordstroms.

The concert was fabulous….

they even sounded like they were in tune the whole time.

I know that we don’t have a child with Julliard aspirations here…but all is good…and you can’t knock a kid who

wants to play the cello and drag that thing to school every week even though it weighs more than a small hippo. i was sitting watching the kids warm up….

i decided to do what i do best…

and that is pan around with my camera….

{thank goodness for the zoom lens}

and see who i could find. It’s like where is waldo…but waldo went missing.

I found my friend marijuana…..

oops…i meant Maryjane and Jason.

{really…..i don’t know why i keep referencing that illicit drug}

and i don’t know who this is…

she obviously didn’t want her photo taken.

oops…it’s a teacher….


here is my friend Tara…

she doesn’t realize that i’m taking her photo.

I think she is talking to the man next to her and telling him that she really does like to

tinker with her husbands tools.

then he said something to her about tinkering with BIG tools….

then she turned around and saw me watching her.

Let’s not say anything about that conversation okay…

keep it on the down low.

Apparently…a mans tools are very important.


and then Bryan showed up….

good thing Lola is already down on the floor making sure everyone finds their seats.

She’s telling bryan….

there’s mom….she brought the big lens and is taking photos….

and here we are back at boy….

the boy with the best tie in the world.

It would all be good as long as he didn’t rip off the price tag on the way home…

but like i said…i was going to keep it anyway.

    In 1977 I was invited to my boyfriend’s junior prom. I showed him the dress I had……the one I could afford and he didn’t like it. I went to Macy’s and bought a new one……that I couldn’t afford. He loved it! (and therefore me, right?)We danced the night away. I went back to Macy’s the next day with my dress…….dirty hem and all, and returned it! I am the reason there is a no return policy on formal dresses at most major department stores. Yeah. I did that! I’d like to add that since then i have learned to dress for myself…..not for the approval of any man.

  14. Most awesome post
