Cricket's Thoughts

Random Rambling

Taylor Napping On The Couch

Remember when we were young and spent HOURS riding bikes and never got tired? Why is it that now we call it exercise and dread it as if we were fixin’ to have a root canal?

Why is it that people only discuss food when I am starving to death?

Is there really an “off” button on a computer? Have you ever seen it?

Little girls played house and had every possible toy to do it with. Remember your Suzy Bake Oven? Toy vacuum? Toy shopping cart? Do you remember begging your mama to help with the dishes because you were a big girl now? Why do we wish we were doing anything but housework now?

When did we stop watching Saturday morning cartoons?

In our youth, hot summer days found many of us running through the sprinklers and screaming with delight when the water hit us. So why is it we freak out and run from a few rain drops now?

What is it about Sundays that makes me want to curl up on the couch and just vegetate?

Can you remember the last time you got a “real” letter in your mailbox?

Is there any better feeling in the world than that moment after a long hard day when you crawl in the shower, tilt your head back and feel the water running through your hair?

Why do we smile when we see a little frog jumping, but scream when we see a spider?

Is there any better smell than the smell of bread baking in the oven?

How did I get so lucky to have such wonderful friends?

      Well I don’t much like housework, but I do love to play in the rain!

    RE: letters.
    If you get one of my books via my site, I send hand written letters on request – heck, I send hand written letters on request anyway, so if you want a ‘real’ letter, just holler πŸ˜‰ I get a real kick out of sending letters and book plates to people – makes me feel like a real writer – more, even than my books do sometimes πŸ˜€

    Great thoughts! Although, I’m not so fond of frogs. I’d rather meet a spider, I think! πŸ™‚

      I am definitely not a fan of spiders! πŸ™‚
