5 Friday Fragments (celebs, sports, glasses, annoyances, organization

Friday Fragments is hosted my 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. Here we go:
  1. Tony Dow

    When I was a kid, the "Leave It To Beaver" show was one of my favorites and my favorite actor was Tony Dow who played the older brother. My aunt even got me an autographed picture of him that I had in my wallet which was stolen. Now he is 67 with a full head of gray hair! He is also now a sculptor!
  2. Sports

    The NFL refs are back in business! They were certainly missed.

    The Indians fired their manager yesterday--no big surprise there.

    OSU has the biggest fan base nationwide for college football.
  3. Eyeglasses

    My husband and I both got new glasses. We got the kind that darkens in the sun and like them. I don't find myself squinting so much when I walk outside on a sunny day now.
  4. Annoying Things

    My husband's most annoying thing this week was a traffic jam two days in a row! Mine was trying to leave a comment on a blog using CAPITCHA--I tried three times and then gave up!
  5. Organization

    In The Power of a Positive Woman by Karol Ladd, the example of an organized woman used was Susannah Wesley, mother of 19 children (including John and Charles Wesley)! On pg. 15, it said:
    Her "thirteen Rules of Child Rearing" are as applicable today as they were over two hundred years ago. Out of curiosity, I googled them and actually found 16 House Rules by Susannah Wesley over at Raising Godly Children.  I am enjoying this book!

Tell Gerard I'll gladly trade his two traffic jams for my twice daily ones. ;) Life in Chicago is one big traffic jam!

Isn't it sad to see your childhood stars aging? I used to love David Cassidy, and while I think he still looks pretty good, it's hard for me to see him age. Robert Redford gets me--oh, gees, he was lovely back in the day! now....not so much. :(

Susannah Wesley. Isn't she an inspiration? I loved reading a bit about her when I was younger. if I would have children, one of the names I had picked out was Wesley, a tribute to John and Charles.

I'd like to add on the CAPITCHA thing. I love it when they have word verification and then moderate their comments too. What's the point? Do you hate comments that much? They must.

Have a terrific day and weekend. :)

Isn't it funny how our childhood stars age but we don't? :) I watched the first half of the game last night and haven't yet seen who won. Guess I need to check that out! My hubby hates traffic too so I told him we can never live in a big city or else his blood pressure would be sky high.

I hate Capcha. Also, I get the transition lens. They make such a difference.

My Mommeh says she's always stuck in traffic on her commute to and from work. Yuck!
