i didn't have my camera!!!

this morning i was pleasantly awakened by chico, who sat a mc donald's diet coke my favorite on my night stand. "i bought this for you, db."

"well, aren't you sweet..." i replied, "thank you!!!"


i'm thinking i received the diet coke because he was thinking that i need some caffeine to get me up and going, ha!!! for, he had asked me last night if i would take katherine and him to school this morning so that he wouldn't have to leave his car there overnight tonight... as he and kat are leaving right after school today to go on a school trip to lexington for the state foreign language festival.


he and katherine were chosen to present their project, "the dog from pompeii", for judging in the latin project category...

and to, chico is entered in the roman costume category. oh, how i wish i'd had my camera when we got out to the jeep this morning, he placed the helmet he'd created on his head, grabbed his sword out of the back of the jeep, and struck a pose!!!

unfortunately, you'll just have to visualize... it looked like he had taken a baseball helmet, mounted a broom sans the stick atop it, and spray-painted it gold. now, i know why he HAD to go and buy his mom a new broom last week, ha!!! he had a pleather skirt his dad had sewn for him that he'd also spray painted gold as well as a painted sword he'd purchased while we were in florida and a shield he'd rigged out of an old satelite dish he'd found in his garage. i hope it was an OLD satelite dish... otherwise his parents may no longer be getting a television signal:?


he was a sight to behold!!!


maybe, katherine will get some pictures this weekend, and i will be able to share...

i just hope they will do well with their projects and have a great time!!!

further, i hope you will have a great weekend, too:D

much love,
dani xx

It sounds like an utterly hysterical moment Dani. I can picture it well.

Happy awakening with the caffeine.

Ya, Big Blue. I did't realize you were from Ky. Your word picture was very good. I can see the Roman soldier. Oh what fun to see those kids put outfits together. Thanks for your blogging time and your visits.

Hi Dani

I can always count on a laugh when I visit you here on the lane. Chico is a scream. I would have been in hysterics.

Dani, sounds like you have had some special treats over these last few mornings to kick start your day. Nothing like a bit of indulgence.

Dani, our temperatures are starting to cool down and that means one thing - I am going to be able to wear those jammies you sent me for Christmas very soon. Maybe, I should follow in your footsteps and have me some brownies in bed in my very special jammies!

Sending lots of love and hugs
