DaughterGeeding is turning into a little entrepreneur. Last week she started that little Build A Bear business and now she’s adding to her empire. Last night she made this sign (that’s supposed to be “25¢”, she needs work on writing the number two) and put a bunch of cookies and MY Kit Kats in a bag. She then asked her mother to escort her around the neighborhood. I decided to follow, and without any fear, she was blowing a train whistle I gave her ages back and yelled, “Cookies and Kit Kats for sale!” about every ten steps or so. Despite the heat, she made about six bucks.
I haven’t followed the story of the fatal shooting of the teen at an Arlington, TX car dealership, but I did catch the police chief’s press conference as it aired live during the evening news. The chief seemed very detailed and spoke as if he was concentrating on every word coming out of his mouth. I also don’t think I’ve heard a police chief refer to the Supreme Court in one speech in my life, but then again, I don’t listen to a lot of police chief press conferences.
Yesterday was the anniversay of Robin Williams’ death and Dead Poet’s Society was on. The school in the movie is set at a fictional Welton Academy (though there is an actual Welton Academy). For kicks I wondered if I could find Welton Academy t-shirts online. Yup, but I’m sure not even a handful of people would get the reference.
I liked the season premiere of ‘Hard Knocks’ last night. It’s hard to believe the equipment managers forgot to pack the jerseys for the number one and number two quarterbacks. I’d like the Texans more if they had a better name. But after hearing that the Jets starting quarterback got punched and will be out six to eight weeks, too bad they are featured this season.
