Four Days Left on the Countdown
What have I cross-checked lately?
Assembled a car-schooling binder for Jack. “I’m homeschooled. I learn accidentally!”
Made this campworthy movie screen from Pinterest
Made a knock-off of this clothesline
Cut up the foam squares for the pop-up camper mattresses
“Refreshed” my haircolor
Made a lovely, full-bodied onion bacon quiche
Went to a minor league ballgame with the boys
Bought a new handbag to replace the suede one ruined by rain at said ballgame
Used compound words in all of the above sentences (huzzah for grammar!!)
And the Nerdfest question of the day is…
Should the geek designation for the Expedition be “the Fun-vee” or “the Humdrum-vee”? It can’t be the Batmobile because it is vanilla in color and tows a giant white tissue box behind it. We cannot call it the Argo because it makes Dale “think of the Ben Affleck movie.” Death Star is taken, being the name of the pop-up camper. Millennium Falcon is just too much name for a sport utility vehicle, and would have to to be shortened when giving loading and unloading instructions. “Hey, Mom, did I leave my sonic screwdriver in the MilFalc?” No. The Enterprise, of course, is the name given to my personal vehicle. And I am its captain. Warp speed, Mr. Sulu.
I noticed your binder for Jack included Native American material. The city of Neligh agreed many years ago to take care of the grave of White Buffalo Girl (daughter of Black Elk) from the Ponca tribe as the Ponca traveled their Trail of Tears. It is a historical marker at our local cemetery. I am currently reading a book about the Ponca tribe called “I am a Man” by Joe Starita. (Not sure if that is how you spell his name as the book is not right next to me. Very interesting about what the Ponca tribe went through. Enjoy your trip and may you have safe travels!!
