Welcome to Friday Fragments!  This is the place where we're able to put little snippets of fun or interesting things together without having to stretch that idea into an entire blog post.

Mrs. 4444 is our lovely host and I am so grateful for her continued hosting of this fun carnival.  For more Friday Fragment finds, please head on over to Half-Past Kissin' Time.  Thanks!


- June 23rd, 2011 -

Happy Tin/Aluminum Anniversary to me!
Tom and I were married 10 years ago today.
Our first date was 16½ years ago today.
He got his liver transplant 5½ years ago today.
The 23rd is our date.

My husband said that he was going to get me a roll of aluminum foil tomorrow when he goes grocery shopping.  I asked him if he would make me an aluminum foil hat. 


I was making the guest room bed and tossed this king sized comforter out the door to get it out of my way for a few minutes.  When I came back for it, this is what I found.   Mocha is so funny, but she's not the only family pet that likes to snuggle up in the laundry, I'm sure!


I am going on my road trip in just a few weeks.  I'm staying with or seeing blogging friends and people from our transplant support group who have gone home on my way to New Hampshire and on my way back home to Florida.   I'm looking for one more person to stay with or visit between North Carolina and Massachusetts along the I-81 and I-95 route.   Give me a shout out or ideas on areas to visit and photograph.


This is what I heard at lunch today.

"Would you like a piece of cake?"
"No thanks, we have turkeys at home."

...from a few tables away the word "cookies" sure sounded a lot like "turkeys".


My mother just purchased some new patio furniture and her kitties have found the new accommodations to be perfect!  Love the patio Momma and my McCoy planter looks lovely on the table.


I bought a new lens for my camera the other day.  It's a telephoto lens Nikor 55 - 300.  I have been wanting a new lens for quite awhile now, but with the upcoming trip I could finally justify it.  I have only taken a few photos with it and so far I love it.  I'm not sure how in the world I lived without it!


I keep mentally packing my car - editing what I'm going to take - rearranging where I'm putting each item.  Right now my main goal is to make sure that I can put my drivers seat in a reclining position so I can take cat naps without having to get out and rearrange the whole car.

Road naps are a very important part of any road trip! I always end up taking one or two each day.


Have a wonderful day and if you are looking for more fragmented thoughts, head on over to Mrs. 4444's place to visit more!!

Don't forget to take the boat to Nantucket, you will have a great time exploring New England!

Heather said...

sounds like a great trip... i'd have suggested a side trip to Charleston SC but i'll still be away during your road trip...

Happy anniversary!! Such a cute kitty in the comforter!

Dysfunctional Mom said...

Happy Anniversary(s)!
I love all of the kitty photos.

Congrats on the anniversary! Are you doing anything special to celebrate?

Your mom's patio looks so inviting. I could spend a few hours out there, for sure.

Safe travels. I can't help with the housing, but if you ever head to Indianapolis, you've got a place to stay.

Happy Anniversary.

We had a cat that would jump up on our bed whenever I changed the sheets. He'd run from corner to corner trying to "get" the sheet before I could tuck it in. Crazy cat. :)

turkeys on your mind?
If you have time drive down part of the Blue Ridge Parkway. I know it is in NC and I think Virgina too.
Road Naps - be sure to exit the road first.

Lex the mom said...

Happy Anniversary! IF your husband does make you that hat, will you post a photo? ;)

Love that patio setting, it looks so welcoming.

"...turkeys at home..." That's funny! Like a second glance, I've heard things sometimes that make me think Huh??

A new lens? SCORE!!! And a telephoto zoom. You will love it I am sure. Photograph everything on your trip. You have the eye for composition The 300mm will allow you to get more people photos without being a few feet from them.

All the kitties are looking pretty cozy!
