Day 1052: The coolest

The Year(s) of Living Non-Judgmentally

I think my readers are the coolest.

Recently, two of them made the coolest comments:

Hey — you seem like a cool cat! That line of work must be very challenging. I admire your consistent, long-running posts, too 🙂 — cmblackwood

Miles Davis for me. He was so cool, if he was alive today global warming wouldn’t be a problem! — Paul S.

Also,  fellow WordPresser  coffeegrounded did the coolest thing: she honored me with the coolest award (even though I don’t do anything with cool WordPress awards besides appreciating them).

What’s the coolest thing somebody has done for you, lately?

I’m trying to decide what my coolest activity might be, today:

  1. Individual therapy, where I work.
  2. Group therapy, which is the coolest therapy (I believe) because “the more the merrier.”
  3. Getting fitted for a dental device for my sleep apnea, which will be much cooler ( I hope)…

Those Boots Are Made For Walking

Through Open Lens

F/5.3, 1/60, ISO 200.

Day 322 / 365

A little boy was standing and crying in the classroom, so the teacher asked him what was wrong. “I can’t find my boots,” the little boy sobbed.
The teacher looked around the room and saw a pair of boots. “Are these yours?” she asked. “No, those aren’t mine,” he cried.
The teacher and the little boy searched all over the classroom for his boots. Finally, the teacher gave up and said, “Are you SURE those aren’t your boots?” “Yes, I’m sure,” sobbed the boy. “Mine had snow on them!”

Interesting Fact: Early boots consisted of separate leggings, soles, and uppers worn together to provide greater ankle protection than shoes or sandals. Around 1000 BC, these components were more permanently joined to form a single unit that covered the feet and lower leg, often up to the knee. A type of soft leather ankle…

What We Wore Wednesday

2 Classy Sisters

Rachel’s Look

| Etsy Blanket Scarf | Express Sweater | American Eagle Jeggings | LL Bean Boots (similar) | Tory Burch Earrings |

Today was a cold and rainy day so I wasn’t able to take pictures outside. Since it was a chilly day I decided to break out my blanket scarf! If you don’t own a blanket scarf I definitely suggest getting one. They are so great at keeping you warm while still looking cute! I also wore my new Tory Burch earrings and I love them! My LL Bean boots were great at keeping my feet warm and dry on this drizzly day.

Power Plant Janitor John Fry Standing Guard as Floors Dry

Power Plant Men

Originally posted November 15, 2014.  I added an addendum at the bottom of the original post:

John Fry had a peculiar way of standing in front of the bathroom door in the electric shop after he had mopped the bathroom floor as he waited for the floor to dry. It was as if he was a sentry on duty in front of the Buckingham Palace in London because he would stand so still. I would amuse myself by picturing him dressed in the red Beefeater uniform standing at attention at the bathroom door at a coal-fired Power Plant in North Central Oklahoma.

Only John wasn’t carrying a rifle, he was holding his broom handle. He would hold the handle of the broom so that it was parked just behind his right ear. His head would be slightly bent forward and the expression on his face was…
