Flag Spinning Skills Take Practice

Here we are in Aunt Linda and Uncle Frank’s front yard.  Murphy resting in the grass.

Abigail was a flower girl in Mark and Erika’s wedding almost exactly ten years ago and now she is going into high school.  Here she is demonstrating how to spin a flag- there are butterflies and figure eights and she has to do it left handed and right handed and toss it in the air and catch it. Anna and Maura were watching and I know I couldn’t do it.  Even with practice.  Her silk flag flowing in synchronized motion will add a lot to the half time show come fall.


Inflatables Season Begins

I am fascinated by these monstrosities....I mean yard decor!

There is no explanation as to why I photograph these items.  Last year it was the Inflatable Turkeys and then a new one today- Frankenstein.  I hear they are expensive.  I guess I just don’t understand how they have caught on.  Surely the grandchildren would love a yard full of inflatables.  They remind me of those plastic clown punching bags you’d bop in the nose and it would fall  over and right itself, still smiling. They seem to be getting larger!
