Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


SPF: Hold them, Squeeze them, love them!!

It is that time for Kristine at Random and Odd to give us the weekly Stuff Portrait Friday assignment. Since it’s National Breast Cancer awareness month and Kristine has done nothing but fondle her own, she figured she should do something to honor the girls. YET, in a differen’t way…of course.

So, our SPF assignment:
1. Your Pot Holders (Oven Mits)
2. Your Pumpkins (or Melons)
3. Something Pink

Ok, I use the Christmas pot-holders my mother has bought for me over the years. I like my penguin ones the best.

I keep them in an old collander on the counter nestled between the toaster, my cookbooks and recipes that I clip out of magazines and the dish drainer. You'll love the Gatorade bottle we re-use with Kool-Aid.

My Pumpkins (or melons)

Hot Rod has claimed dibs on the pirate, Stinkerbelle has the witch and Pickle is the wizard. I just really like dressing these guys up. We may carve them a day or two before Halloween.

My real-life melons, which I squeeze at least once a month for a breast self-exam. I'm fond of my girls and don't want to see 'em disappear. And, no, that is not a real tattoo. I'm too big of a chicken for a real one. It's a temporary tattoo.

Finally, something pink.

I call this windblown girl in pink.

Some of the flowers in my aunt-in-law's garden in Becker, Minn.

And me (photo by Pickle). I was a walking bulletin board for Breast Cancer Awareness Month Thursday night.

So, did you play?

    My name is Mark Johnson, and I've been an avid reader of your blog for about the last six months. I'm a recent UC Berkeley Political science grad and I along with some fellow Princeton alums have been working hard to launch our own internet startup called Rizzleweb is basically an online political community where people can log on and write performance reviews\comments for congressmen, senators, the president, and various other local and state officials across the country. I was hoping that if it would not be too much trouble you could place a link of our site on your blog. If this is not possible (which we completely understand), we still hope you will check out our site, and post some reviews

    That's so funny that you use your Christmas pot holders all year round, but then again, why not?

    Windblown girl in pink is adorable- those curls!

    Thanks for stopping by and have a great Friday.

    What? Huh? Are there photos posted here other than that magnificently filled red dress?

    Hadn't visited in a while, AoM, and somehow you just get more and more smokin' hot all the time . . .

    I love Anonymous. I wish he came around more often!!! I am rarely called smokin' hot anymore.

    Oh, I would, except that AoD ...
    --looks considerably bigger than me
    --and seems to be rather more proficient with firearms than I am, and
    --seems to be a very nice guy.

    So, I just admire from afar.

    No arguments with any of those comments about AoD, except the very nice guy one. ;) Nah, he's a pretty good guy, he is a good shot and he is a good size fella. All reasons I love him.

    and, a big old *muah* for the kind words.
