Mother (listening to daughter’s rap on the car stereo): I don’t get how people could dance to this.
Daughter (driving, quickly glances over to her mother): You just have to shake your booties.
Mother: Shake your booties?
Daughter: Ya, like Beyonce..
Mother (trying to picture herself shaking her booties) pauses then replies: I don’t think so. It wouldn’t be flattering at my age, like watching a circus act. As a matter of fact, I don’t even think it would be as cute as elephants dancing.
It was a lovely day, sun shining. Braily’s mother decided to break up the monotony of home routine. She had heard of a new playground on a farm that also had a petting zoo. When arriving, she sat on a bench and let Braily explore. Straddling over the grass, Braily walked straight toward the playground, a fulfilling place for a curious child for which her mother felt would also develop interests.
As Braily played attentively near a train shaped tubular wooden sculpture, she spotted a unique object with three wheels. Wobbling toward it, her short legs clumsily lifted above the recently cut grass. Across the field where the three-wheeler stood was a small track. She finally reached the mysterious three-wheeler. Studying it carefully, her small hand cupped the handle bar. Funny that she didn’t try to get up on it. Makes one wonder what little minds think when they find something new where everything around them is a first. Slowly she studied it before getting bored and moving on to a slide that was attached to a shape of a ship back towards the playground area.
Braily didn’t say much yet. Her fair skin was lightly coated with sunscreen. She was dressed in her everyday wear and at an age where little minds were easy to please, there wasn’t much her mother needed but a snack to break up her play that also wound her down for the nap.
Being close to Braily’s nap time, her mother rose from the bench and followed Braily to the ship. There was a ramp rather than steps to board the ship so a little tyke such as Braily could manage the slide quite easily on their own. Her mother stood close regardless just in case. After a few times down the slide, her mother took Braily by the hand. “You want a snack?” she asked softly. It got Braily’s attention off the playground. “Let’s have something to eat.” Little two-year-old Braily contentedly followed as it ended playtime perfectly.
It is my greatest pleasure to thank you who are from US and the UK for being one of my biggest supports of my blog. I hope you continue to be a big part of what makes my blog a success. Thank you Canadians who have also visited the most in 2014. May this year continue to be read by you and may many more people from other countries visit.
I’d also like to take this time to wish bloggers a successful blogging year and hope to catch more of your posts too. This new type of entertainment is vastly populated with bloggers and many of us strive to bring new thought and entertainment so may we all have a place in someone’s heart.
It’s a new year and a new beginning so I thought it was time to bring out an author’s thought category. The main purpose of this blog. I will be revealing my thoughts. I hope you enjoy the inside of my brain!
From my heart to yours, may the year be a true new beginning for you.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,100 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 35 trips to carry that many people.

Dear Lord, for it is said that thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven so may we all be sheltered, cared for and fed. May we be forgiven as many times as we can forgive over and over again. Now I shall lay me down to sleep dear Lord. I pray my soul to keep another day. May the angels watch over me and keep me safe throughout the night that when I wake I may be in their blessed sight throughout the day.
Canada day is just another day these days. I haven’t taken in any activities nor seen fireworks. I use to enjoy it but these days I find there really isn’t anyone to enjoy such days with. I also seem to miss where and what is going for Canada day. I’m sure it will not always be and I will get a chance to enjoy it again. Happy Canada Day to you. I’m a few days late on getting this out.
Happy July 4 USA
