Friday Fragments is hosted by Half Past Kissin' Time for bloggers to post a list of short things on their minds that aren't really enough for a whole post.
ReadingFirst of all, at the end of the year we always review the lists of the books we've read and choose our favorites. We post these over at our book blog (Grab a Book From Our Stack). We had 18 books that we both loved this past your and listed them for you with links to our reviews.
Cracker BarrelWe enjoyed several meals at Cracker Barrel recently and when I washed my hands in the restroom, the water wouldn't come on. It was those automatic faucets where you just put your hands under them and the water is supposed to come out. People next to me had theirs working so I tried that sink and it didn't like me. I finally asked a girl next to me how she got that to work and she showed me the sensors and said I had to have my hands lower across from them. So then it worked when I lowered my hands--felt stupid but at least now I know.
Abby's LegI am pleased to report that Abby's leg seems very close to normal now after being at the full dosage of Metacam for a week and a few days.
Unique ShirtMy husband found the perfect t-shirt for me for Christmas and I love it! He was right that I never would have guessed what it was. I will be wearing this to our Children's Worker Breakfast at church coming soon.
LaughterTwo things cracked me up recently: First was when my husband started putting on MY black pants by accident, thinking they were his. I had them laid out on the bed and he picked them up and started putting them on!
The other funny thing was when we were walking the dog, Gerard said maybe the Browns would put in "Thigpen" but I heard it as "Pigpen" and busted up laughing, thinking of the dirty Charlie Brown character.
Patriots still find ways to win and Brady is just a real quality guy, both on and off the field. I'd love to see the Bengals and the Patriots in the Super Bowl with the Patriots winning.
Don't know what happened to the Bruins; Gerard thinks they are getting old.
And finally, our Ohio State Buckeyes came through last night against Alabama. What an exciting come-from-behind win! GO BUCKS!
When channel surfing, I discovered a sport I never knew of before--red bull bike racing in Colorado. These guys are dare devils and amazing with how they can ride these bikes down mountain trails the go straight down with tight turns and drop offs. This blew me away.
