A Motorcycle Party, in Honor of my Mom's Birthday!

Hey, look what I found! Pictures from this past summer when I discovered evidence of a motorcycle party in downtown Ephraim! (2013 Ephraim, Utah Population: 6,431)
 You may see the bikes parked in front of Towne Theater and deduct that they all stopped to watch "A Mouse and His Motorcycle," but it's not likely that they stopped to watch a movie. See the little blue sign on the building next to the theater? It says, "Main Street Diner."
(I wonder if they ran out of pie?)
Interesting anecdote... while driving down the freeway one day, I watched a motorcycle rider toss a glove over to another motorcyclist while biking along at 75 mph. The second rider reached out to catch it, and missed by just 12 inches. (No, they didn't stop to pick it up. They just laughed and kept on going.)
These motorcycles remind me of my mother (Happy Birthday Mom! She turns 90 years young today!) because Mom has always wanted a red convertible sports car. That's the next step to a convertible!
Do these motorcycles make you want to hop on and go for a ride?
Do you have a motorcycle heart? Or are you a four-door kind of person?

Found Some Pirates at Walmart

No, Halloween isn't over yet! I found these pirates at WalMart!
But wait a minute...what if they aren't dressed for Halloween? Could they be from a Pilgrim ship? (Or chasing a Pilgrim ship? Maybe they're hungry for a shriveled apple!)
Or maybe they always dress this way. It could be their regular modus operandi!
It was fun to run into them, and I'm thankful they let me take a photo without brandishing a cutlass.
What are you thankful for?

Badger Ballers Basketball Game

What in the world is a Badger Baller Game? It takes place on the Snow College Campus, since their mascot is a badger. It pairs people with special needs with the college basketball team for a rousing game of hoops.
 If you're under five feet tall, you might get a boost to help you make a basket. Or you might get the ball passed to you multiple times until you swish it through the net. Or your shot might get extra propulsion from a long arm to travel those last few inches into the basket.
Here are some of the players. (My smiling sister is in the center. She's the five foot cutie in a flowered short sleeved shirt.)
If the Badger Ballers came to your town, would you want to play?

Cutie Pie Birthday

This Cutie-Pie granddaughter of mine just turned 5!
I just love her imagination. Can you guess what she's holding? I asked her, and she was quick to reply. What does it look like to you? Come on, formulate a guess before you look ahead.
What did you think of?
This is what my granddaughter said:
"They are my puppets."
Makes sense, doesn't it? You can put your finger in the end of a bitten pepper and say in a funny voice, "Hi, I'm Peppy, and I'm wearing a stem hat. Do you want a stem hat, too? Then go plant your feet in the ground and stand there for three months!"
What would your puppet say?

Flowers in Winter

When I saw some big, bright flower decals at the store, my heart bubbled over, imagining how they would brighten my walls. But when I got home, I realized that I had acrylic paint in the same colors as the plastic flowers, and if I painted my own, they wouldn't look all the same.
 So I painted, and painted, and painted.
 Now I have whimsical flowers in my house all the time.
What kind of flower do you like best?
