Photo Challenge: ABC's

Can you find the letter I made with my green beans?

I love the shaky but impressive handwriting of our little ones as they first learn to print.  Beans wrote this 2 or 3 years ago.
These banners are on the street lights on Cherry Street in Helena, AR.  They could stand for Helena, or Historic Helena,,,not sure really but I love the old English look of them.
These letters are what's left of a sign that was once painted on the side of an old brick building in Helena. 

I spent a lot of time searching for this one and I made one letter.  I can't wait to see what everyone came up with.  Don't forget to stop by our Photo Challenge blog, scroll down and click on the links to see all the other participants.

No Excuses,,,except

Alexis (sittin' on the purple cube) performing in the Once Upon a Time musical put on my their Summer of the Arts program.  She did a splendid job, as did all of those little cuties.
Zach spent a week in Tennessee with his Mom. This is the only picture she sent of his activities.
Here's Jaylen with one of her softball trophies.  This young lady is a great fast pitcher.

Jordan with her team won their 12 and under girls softball  State Championship and are now down in Panama City at the 12 and Under Softball World Series. GO Arkansas OutKast!
Jilly Beans had a birthday. Can you believe she's 6 already?
We had one good rain early this month.
I'll post some pics of our other monkeys as soon as I get some more recent ones.

Things I've found that irritate me this week.

1. Droopy Drawers.  Pull up yer pants fellas,,,geez!

Sagging pants was never meant to be fashionable. Prisoners wear their pants this low because belts are a popular way to commit suicide by hanging oneself, to hang others, or to use as a weapon in fights. Prisoners are also not allowed to have shoestrings for the same reasons. But there is an even more obvious reason why pants are sagging in prison. If the pants are below a man's bottom, it is to introduce to other men that he is homosexual. As Eazy E once said about women in skirts, "For easy access, baby."
I looked over and saw this while waiting to get a drink at the McDonald's drive-thru the other day. Ewww, ewwww, just ewww!

2. The incorrect usage of the word "twins".

One of  Zach's teachers mentioned her "two, twin, stepdaughters" or
Referring to twins as a pair of twins.

TWIN: either of two offspring produced at a birth or one of two persons or things closely related to or resembling each other.

consisting of two, twofold, double.

The teacher should only have mentioned she had twin step-daughters because the word twin takes care of the two part.  It's the same with pair because pair also means two.  Does that make any sense?

3. Casey Anthony.

Need I mention more?
