Deluxe Adventure

My daughter's (12) response when the car wouldn't start, "Oh good! We'll have an adventure!"

{i invented a photoshop action i call "psychedelic"}

Crazy day! This morning the girls had an ophthalmologist appointment and then we drove off to school with their wacky groucho marx glasses protecting them from sunlight. We stopped at Sonic for lunch and when I tried to start the engine the dashboard flashed disco lights and the car wouldn't start. The car battery jumper guy popped over and got the car started. So we are the owners of a new battery and never made it to school. A discombobulated day!

    I love your daughter's spontaneous response to your car not starting. It reminded me of our begging our mother to "get us lost." (We also asked her to "make us those eggs with the shells in them," i.e. boiled eggs.)

    Thank you for including me on your list! What a nice surprise. I wanted to tell you the other day but got distracted (what else is new?!), you inspired me to make a date with myself in the coming week to go to the botanical garden. After looking at your photos I'm inspired to take my sketchbook, watercolors and camera and have fun!
