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!

I celebrated my 2000th blog post yesterday.  I really am proud of myself because in the things that I want to do for myself I tend to flake out after a little while (exercise anyone?) and I really wanted to blog.  I had to set a few 365 day goals to get it to be a daily habit, but I did it.  The neat thing is that I still love blogging and can't see ever giving it up at this point. So Happy 2000th to The Goat!! Yay!

Our liver transplant community just had a huge turn over.  Nearly all of the folks that arrived last winter and spring were transplanted within the past six weeks.  Our group went from a group of about 40 (Patients and caregivers) waiting and wondering to a group of 40 looking forward to all of the things they can start doing again and enjoying the new life that they have been given.  We've got about four more pre transplant folks (and their caregivers) that can't wait to join that group of 40.  It's exciting and I can't wait to see them all healthy and heading home, but I'm really going to miss all the friendships I've made.

I have this couch I've been trying to sell on CraigsList.  Here's the ad that listed and the email I received about said couch. 

FOR SALE:
Beige sofa with rust and green pin stripes. The two floral designer pillows are included. The sofa is in really great condition as it was hardly used, but it does have some stains. All offers will be considered.

EMAIL:
What is the condition of the item used or new?

MY RESPONSE:
We bought the sofa new, then we used it.

They didn't send any other inquiries!  haha

I never did get the couch sold so we gave it to the son of the owner for his new bachelor pad.  He probably won't even notice the stains.

My photo of the day was quite timely.  About an hour after I posted it on my blog, the fire alarm in our condo started going off.   The power of suggestion is strong today.  I think I'm going to post a picture of money next!

I have to admit that I have taken the smoke alarm off in our master bedroom.  The alarms are SO earpiercing and in our small condo we have 6 alarms, plus one for the building.  At one point when we first moved in, the alarms would go off three and four times a day.  The sun shine was directed to the garage alarm somehow and it would go off.   This went on for weeks and weeks.  I wasn't going to leave the building every time from my 5th floor condo.  So I took off the detector in our bedroom.  The condo is still pulsing with the alarm noise, but at least the ear splitting ringing is muffled a bit in there.  This morning I even grabbed my kitty and brought her in there with us.  Turns out that someone turned the leaf blower on in the garage, which always sets off the alarm.

The photos are of a gator mural I saw on a local craft store.  He's really cool!

More cool stuff can be found at Mrs. 4444's place though, as the Friday Fraggers are linking up there.

Have a great weekend!

2000?! WOW! Congratulations! Your posts are always of great quality, too; you have reason to feel proud.

I have a student for whom I keep earplugs handy for alarms at school. Thankfully, we are usually right near the EXIT, so we don't have to hear it very long!

The alligator IS very cool.

The couch email is the story of my life at school, most days.

Good luck with the money image suggestion! :) Have a great weekend.

It's a great mural. That's a funny question they asked, did they even read your ad? That is really something about all those alarms.

2000 posts is quite the accomplishment. It's great that you still enjoy blogging after all that time. I've been blogging for many years now and still love it too.

Thanks for visiting my blog.
