Waking Up Full of Awesome: There was a time when you were five years old, and you woke up full of awesome. You knew you
True ... Someone sent me photos of a time when chad and I were hanging out at the same place 7 years ago, but both were still with our exes ...Amazing how this world works. Never knew that day that my future husband and father to my children was right in front of me. Fate brought us together and love will keep us there ..
John Lennon - His parents were unable to provide him with a stable home so when he was five years old, his Aunt Mimi and Uncle George adopted him. They brought up a creative, brilliant young man who influenced millions.
Ride. Was it fun when you were a kid? It still is awesome good fun. With a friend, on a date, with your kids, or by yourself (breaking my own rule there) A Townie, a fixie, a road bike, MTB, XC, and ole beat up bike. Ride.... feel the breeze. No gas and it's fun exercise. Okay I'll get off my Podium now ;-)
Mailbox were on most corners. It was really something when Mother said you were old enough to walk to the corner and mail a letter all by yourself!
I remember when
A Liger! The awesome hybrid cross between a female tiger and a male lion. They are the largest of all the jungle cats, "growing to almost the lion and tigers combined size." Interestingly, "in history there have been stories of ligers found in the wild. Ligers were long thought to be sterile, but this theory was disproved in 1953, when a 15 year old liger was successfully mated with a male lion. The cub survived into adulthood, despite having poor health."
Yep! One time in church a lady came up to me and started a convo saying "Do you remember me? I was you old sunday school teacher, when you were eight"....Just smile and nod.
It was a million tiny little things that, when you added them all up, they meant we were supposed to be together - and I knew it.
These remind me of a toy my sister and I loved when we were young! It was a fold-up play area for little dolls of some sort.

A few days before their wedding, Alex Voutsinas and Donna Balzano of Boynton Beach, Florida, were looking through old photos to display at their reception. Donna found a Polaroid of her first visit to Walt Disney World, when she was five years old. Alex noticed a man in the background who looked awfully familiar--his own father, pushing a stroller. Who was in the stroller? Alex! It was the couples' first photo together, snapped 15 years before

I so long to meet you sis! I am so tired of people saying "I know it was you and your back, or you work downtown Lansing. As if I can find you among ten thousand people. When I never knew your name. As a child I thought you must have died. As a young adult I thought I had a double, that lived close by. Our mother died when we were teens. She thought she had identical twins. The doctor was going to talk to her some more about it but never did. My certificate does not say who attended my birth. Sh
A reporter asked an old couple. "How did you manage to stay together for 65 years?" The woman replied. "We were born in a time when if something was broken, we would FIX it, not throw it away...."
Awesome Alice in Wonderland tattoo :) except with a diiferent quote. Like the one bout i knew who i was when i woke up this morning. But i must have changed several times since then.

A long time ago...
GHOST GIRL! This is a photo taken in my grandparents backyard in the mid 70's. It was a birthday party for one of my aunts and there were a lot of kids around. When going through the photos a few days later when they were developed, everyone saw this face at the bottom of the photo but no-one knew who it was. That was until my grandma had a quick look and said "Oh, that looks like Maree." Maree had died about ten years prior to this photo being taken.
“Before you, Bella, my life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars — points of light and reason… And then you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly everything was on fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty. When you were gone, when the meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black. Nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn’t see the stars anymore. And there was no more reason
Ny ♥ me , bitchs ! - Remember when you were a mad man thought you was...
Amityville horror. The first time that picture was shown was on the Merv Griffin show back in '79. It was discovered 3 years after it was taken. Gene Campbell, (a professional photographer) was brought into the house in 1976 when the Warrens went in with their team. He set up an automatic camera on the 2nd floor landing that shot off infrared film shots throughout the night. There were many rolls of film with nothing on them, except one picture

Stuart Lewis-Evans was an up and coming racing driver and good friend of the young Stirling Moss, this image was taken in September 1953 when Stuart was just 23 years old and it shows him unloading his Cooper 500 Formula 3 racing car at the Crystal Palace race circuit in South London – from the roof of a Series 1 Land Rover. Interestingly, Land Rover was only 5 years old at the time but as you can see – people had already begun finding novel uses for them.
"A wealthy, single socialite, Edith was 36 years old when she boarded the Titanic. On board she befriended a 59 year old wife and mother named Caroline Brown. The two women were among the throng trying to reach a lifeboat as the Titanic sank. When only one space remained, Edith pushed Caroline forward saying “You go first, you have children waiting at home.” Edith was one of four first class women to perish in the sinking of the Titanic.
Party of Five How could you not love this show... Everyone was beautiful and still famous as actors. Plus in these show there were no parents and it played true. These non-adults never acted like adults and they had a hard time, it wasn't a silly free-for-all, it was pretty honest. Love it and wish they would show reruns.
ALL ABOUT TEA
me and Ericka at the airport when the flight was delayed due to a snowstorm. The news was there interviewing travelers (I had a superman t-shirt on over a turtle-neck .. HAHAHAHA!!) People I knew were like: "Hey! I saw you on the news!" ... I was like "Oh shit. that's right"
People I love
Emma and Daniel sleeping on set. "People who are close to me know, they so know, that there were days when it was decidedly unglamorous. And I was so tired, I would fall asleep anywhere. They’ll never be released, but the onset photographer has pictures of me falling asleep everywhere. Like on chairs, on the floor, in the middle of a set, all curled up. Like a cat…There were times when crew members didn’t know where to find me, but they knew I’d
How did you stay married for 65 years? "We were born in a time when if something was broken we would fix it, not throw it away."
when I was in France (which i still have a lot to post) I was inspired by their breakfast set up. The table had recycled wine bottles filled with all kinds of juices. I thought that was amazing, so I filled a couple with orange juice and almond milk. If you were having a brunch, you could use wine bottles and fill them up with pineapple juice, orange juice, iced coffee, apple juice, and milk.
Take A Seat
This is NOT a Post Mortem. How do you think she's standing up? She is standing straight and stiffly -- the poor thing was most likely wearing a corset. (They were thought good for kids' spines.) Originally tagged as 1883 CDV of a girl identified as 10 year old Clara A. Smith, daughter of Lorin and L. Smith of New York.. Post mortem
