Twelve Years Old! Oh My.
So grown up, and it happened so quickly.
What do you call the object on the right?
Yes, it’s a lost pacifier In a parking lot. Someone had a long and perhaps loud ride home Unless they had a spare.
So there are many nicknames for a pacifier.
By what name do you call it?
It might depend where you live or perhaps a family special moniker. (This photo is not intended to spark debate on whether pacifiers are good or bad.)
8:03 AM Update> I posted on FB and have received quite a few varied nicknames Binky/Binkie, Nuk. Nukkee, Bobby, Choca, Chupete, In Sweden- Napp (bite), Nuggi, Peace of Mind, Smokk- Norway or Tut-Tut, Kiki, Nuggi
Rick says it’s “schnuller” in German.

Thanks for all the comments. I appreciate your responses. It seems an issue I have trouble fixing. Now the WordPress Bloggers have to sign in? Oh my. It should not be a pain to leave a thought or good word.
Throwback Thursday. One of my favorite family photographs. Mark reading while Erika’s holding baby Jack and Anna and Michael. Before Maura was born. We were on a road trip in May 2007, staying at our friend Joanne’s home in Omaha, Nebraska. 782 miles from Columbus to Omaha in the minivan, that’s one way. I sat in the back with the kids and was the Granny Nanny while Mark (and sometimes Erika) attended meetings at a convention. The word of the week this would illustrate might be Exhaustion. Oh, that’s right, they don’t have the word of the week anymore. 🙁

My Father’s Day post.
Here’s a photo of our parents, Roy and Marian Hendricks. Dad is holding my sister.
My parents didn’t own a camera so a family friend must have taken this picture.
This lovely photo is in one of those awful sticky photo albums. Ugh. There must be a way to remove the photo without damaging it. Any clue?
