Reflecting

Are they working on blogspot this weekend or something? This posting screen sure looks mighty strange today.

The other day, when Jerri and I, with the Chicklets, went to Forrest City, we spotted a sight that we see quite a lot of down here in the south. It was one of those Hooptie cars, or what I call a Hooptie anyway, This one was a late 60's, early 70's, convertible that the guy had painted a spring grass green and he'd installed some of those flashy spinning hubs as well as some hydraulic hop kits. There's no doubt that the parts he used to fancy up his ride were worth about 5 times, or more, than the cost of the car. The Chick really took a shine to it and had fun watching the dude hop his car around at the redlight. Does everyone have these Hoopties in their area?

Jerri was telling me about a conversation she had with the Chick the other day and I had to laugh. The girls had been so clingy that Jerri even had to sweep with Jillian hanging on her leg and she told them, "Please act like normal kids and go to your room to play and watch TV for awhile." Alexis looked up at her and said, "But we're not normal Momma, elderly people call us young!" I reckon that child will be getting her drivers license in the next year or so. Ha!

Jami was here yesterday with her girls. MeriKate brought her certificate to show me that she'd been chosen as Student of the Month. She's doubly proud of this since last year she didn't take to school too kindly. All three of the girls made the honor roll the first 9 weeks so everything is good there.

I'm going to go take a nap now. See ya'll later!

I love old cars. Not sure how I feel about spiffing them up with modern day things though. That looks like a cute car. Nice pics of the little ones!

When one of those cars with the spinny wheels drives past me I have to look away, my stomach feels sick!

Have a good nap!

I haven't ever seen a hopping car in person. I can only imagine what Squirt's reaction would be, since he's in love with anything that has wheels!

"Elderly people." You know she meant you.

Sally said...

Yep, the chick is way ahead of her time! That's too funny, elderly people!

I find those cars so annoying, I can't be the only one. LOL

Ok..Mom...a Hoopty is a worn out piece of crap car...like the door handles don't work or only one windshield wiper works. What you saw was a pimped out car...there is a big difference!!!!! There are alot of those around these parts...well actually there are a lot of both hoopty and pimped out cars!

Ok, pimped out hooptie then. It was a ragged piece of crap convertible with $4000 worth of spinner rims on it and back and front hop kits. Ha!
