I thrifted the center picture some time ago, but it always looked weird all alone. Last week, my Sweetay was going through his Granny's old stuff and found 4 matching ones! They depict Revolutionary soldiers and their dress (Colonel of Artillery, American Dragoon, etc.)
Today, I worked way out in the country and had a couple of charming interactions with the people there. On my way out of the store, a little boy grabbed my hand from out of nowhere and pointed up, saying, "Look, look! Do you see the dot in the sky?" I looked and saw. "That's my balloon! I'm sending it to my Mommy. She died." There was no weirdness; the boy was laughing and smiling. "Oh, how sweet of you," I then said. "I'm sure she'll like that very much."
Soon afterwards, I walked past a barbershop with some guys sitting on the bench outside singing. "Don't quit your day jobs," I joked. Later, they passed me in the car and stopped to serenade me with Boyz II Men's "On Bended Knee".
