This Wasn't Supposed to Be Another Post About Me

Each and every day we are busy.  Rushing here and there, trying to get everything done.  It is easy to get bogged down in the monotony of it all.  It's why I am so grateful for unexpected things that make me smile.  Things that make me get out of my head and my thoughts of the day's to-do list. 

Things like glorious displays of bed head.

Especially when the morning sun shines right through it.

And unexpected gems like this just crack me up. 

I smile when I see someone acting all redneck, with a mattress on the roof of a car.  But when the driver and passenger are holding onto it through the windows, I laugh.  Hard.  Do they really think that, in the unfortunate event that the straps holding that mattress break, they will be able to hold the whole thing on with just their two hands? 

In full disclosure, I have to say that my hearty laughter comes partly from the fact that Hubby and I have done this exact same thing.  Except it was a queen-sized bed on a mini-van.  And four kids were in the van, watching out their windows, hollering that the mattress was sliding.

And in even fuller disclosure, I have to say, we haven't done just this exact same thing.  We do this every year with a 12-foot Christmas tree strapped to the top of our van.  Which is not too bad with a 12 passenger van.  But when you strap a 12-foot tree to a mini-van, get your hand all gummy from the sap leaking out of the one branch to which you clutch, and creep down the road at a speed 25 miles slower than the legal limit, forcing a long line of cars to form behind you, we all might as well just start singing the theme song from "The Beverly Hillbillies."

told you I was a redneck.

 Have a lovley day!
