Friday Fragments - Three Day Weekend Ahead!

I was chastised by my daughter for not posting on Wednesday for the hodgepodge questions (sorry Joyce) so I'm joining Mrs. 4444 for Friday Fragments.

Half-Past Kissin' Time

We'll start off with the stupid criminal. A woman was arrested for trying to go to high school with a fake id. She was 31 and said she was 15. Why would anyone want to go back to high school in their 30's? 

I finally got my flower seeds planted this week. Dan had to till some dirt for me. In the little bit of time he was outside he got a tick. So today he will be spreading bug granules in hopes that it will rain this weekend like they say it will.

My favorite summer show starts next week. So You Think You Can Dance is mine and Whitney's staple for watching in the summer. We can't wait.

Whitney bought her plane ticket to go to New York City this week to visit her roommate who is there for a summer internship. She has been busy plotting how to go as many Broadway shows as possible. I've never been there so any guidance would be great. She will be staying near Times Square.

I'm in the process of trying to decide what I want to do in Hawaii so I can purchase our plane tickets. I'm pretty sure it will involve changing islands at some point because we really want to see the volcanoes but my meeting is in Honolulu. Thus some major planning needs to get going.

The food trucks that I mentioned on Monday will be in St. Louis this weekend. If you are around there, go check them out.

Hopefully all can enjoy a three day weekend in celebration of Memorial Day. Remember that service men and women gave their lives so that we can be free to celebrate.

The last time I was at Arlington National Cemetery.


  1. Definitely visiting a volcano in Hawaii is at the top of our list as well.

  2. I love Arlington Cemetery. Have a great Memorial Day weekend.

  3. Clueless on advice to give for Broadway shows, never been to New York. I wonder if there is some info online on how to approach getting to them, since Google seems to have everything and anything on it.

    I agree with you, why would anyone want to go back to high school? One time was enough for me.


  4. I saw the story of the lady in high school...CRAZY!

  5. They sometimes discount the tickets the day of the show at the ticket office. In New York comfortable shoes are the most important accessory. Be careful of street vendors. If its too good to be true its fake.
    My favorite in Hawaii is the Pearl Harbor museum. It is so touching.
    Have a safe weekend.

  6. Beautiful picture of Arlington. You are so right -- it is important to remember that it is more than a day off!

    I would never want to go back to high school!
