Of Interest.

I saw a few very odd and interesting things when I left the house today. And I thought I would share:

• A Florida license plate with a huge Great White shark leaping up to devour the letters/numbers. It was the most Xtreme real license plate I've seen yet. And it was on a brown Astro Van from possibly the 80s. Awesome.

• A spider going after a snail on the outside of my living room window. It was a very small spider. But then again, that was one very s-l-o-w snail. Time will only tell their fate.

• A woman (mom? daycare provider?) wearing an infant in a baby bjorn carrier, pushing a single stroller, and pulling 2 small kids in these little plastic car/carts that were hooked together like a little train. Wearing a back brace. Across a busy intersection. Up hill. I suddenly felt very able to handle my current circumstances when I witnessed that.

Fun to get out and see the world! I need to get out more...

I don't know why, but this reminded me about book I read today wherein she describes this scene from a movie about an alien playing an organ in an insane asylum. Odd combinations...

Wow. I wish there was an accompanying pic of that license plate, I want to see that! And I'm thinking how that mom hurt her back might be pretty self-explanatory, hmm?

Ouch. I feel more sorry for the lady than the snail, I fear.

It reminds me of the time I tried to run with hubby. He is much too fast, of course, so I wore my roller blades. (Who wouldn't?) And he was pushing the 2 kids in the double joggling stroller...but then we came to this SUPER steep hill...and I STILL couldn't keep up. So I hung onto the back of his shirt and let him drag me up. The cars passing by got a good laugh out of seeing a man haul his WHOLE FAMILY up urban Mt. Fugi.
