Today was the homecoming parade in my tiny town. You know the kind of tiny where the whole town shows up for the parade? Where a state highway (aka main street) is shut down for the parade? You know where the one and only streetlight is shut down for the duration of the parade? Where the entire parade, from start to finish, last just under 30 minutes? Well I took 98 pictures today! Yup, I have gone full out tiny town! Blogger absolutely will not let me load all 98 pictures into a single post….hehehe….so I’ll just post a few.

My dad is sitting in the driver’s side watching the parade from the comfort of his truck. I, on the other hand, am right at the street corner to get good pictures.

To the right is my son as Donatello the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.

I’ll save, for now, from having to view the other 96 photos that I took.

To the left is Erchin’s school picture. Ain’t my boy handsom? Okay, so I am deffinately biased, but he’s a keeper in my books!

I just had to shair this with y’all. Drag you mouse over and highlight the big blank section to read it.
Young King Arthur was ambushed and imprisoned by the monarch of a neighboring kingdom. The monarch could have killed him but was moved by Arthur’s youth and ideals. So, the monarch offered him his freedom, as long as he could answer a very difficult question. Arthur would have a year to figure out the answer and, if after a year, he still had no answer, he would be put to death.
The question?….What do women really want? Such a question would perplex even the most knowledgeable man, and to young Arthur, it seemed an impossible query. But, since it was better than death, he accepted the monarch’s proposition to have an answer by year’s end.
He returned to his kingdom and began to poll everyone: the princess, the priests, the wise men and even the court jester. He spoke with everyone, but no one could give him a satisfactory answer.
Many people advised him to consult the old witch, for only she would have the answer..
But the price would be high; as the witch was famous throughout the kingdom for the exorbitant prices she charged.
The last day of the year arrived and Arthur had no choice but to talk to the witch. She agreed to answer the question, but he would have to agree to her price first..
The old witch wanted to marry Sir Lancelot, the most noble of the Knights of the Round Table and Arthur’s closest friend!
Young Arthur was horrified. She was hunchbacked and hideous, had only one tooth, smelled like sewage, made obscene noises, etc. He had never encountered such a repugnant creature in all his life.
He refused to force his friend to marry her and endure such a terrible burden; but Lancelot, learning of the proposal, spoke with Arthur.
He said nothing was too big of a sacrifice compared to Arthur’s life and the preservation of the Round Table.
Hence, a wedding was proclaimed and the witch answered Arthur’s question thus:
What a woman really wants, she answered… is to be in charge of her own life.
Everyone in the kingdom instantly knew that the witch had uttered a great truth and that Arthur’s life would be spared.
And so it was, the neighboring monarch granted Arthur his freedom and Lancelot and the witch had a wonderful wedding.
The honeymoon hour approached and Lancelot, steeling himself for a horrific experience, entered the bedroom. But, what a sight awaited him. The most beautiful woman he had ever seen lay before him on the bed. The astounded Lancelot asked what had happened?
The beauty replied that since he had been so kind to her when she appeared as a witch, she would henceforth, be her horrible deformed self only half the time and the beautiful maiden the other half.
Which would he prefer? Beautiful during the day… or night?
Lancelot pondered the predicament. During the day, a beautiful woman to show off to his friends, but at night, in the privacy of his castle, an old witch? Or, would he prefer having a hideous witch during the day, but by night, a beautiful woman for him to enjoy wondrous intimate moments?
What would YOU do?
What Lancelot chose is below. BUT… make YOUR choice before you scroll down below. OKAY?

Noble Lancelot said that he would allow HER to make the choice herself.
Upon hearing this, she announced that she would be beautiful all the time because he had respected her enough to let her be in charge of her own life.
Now… what is the moral to this story?
Scroll down

The moral is……
If you don’t let a woman have her own way….
Things are going to get ugly

I had this almost dayglo orange yarn and I didn’t know what to make with it. Not enough of it to do alot with. So I got to thinking about halloween and my dgd. Long strory short is that saturday evening while watching tv I crocheted this little trick-or-bag for my dgd. I made the strap long enough so that it could be easily carried by the adults who take her trick-or-treating if need be. (Besides I seriously doupt that she’ll carry it as her other grandparents have the money to buy her a propper bag.) She can also use it to drag around toys or books in, or just use the purse to play with. The yarn is RedHeart cheap acrylic, it was a quick item to make, so no biggie if it gets trashed by dgd.
