“I once had a rose named after me and I was very flattered. But I was not pleased to read the description in the catalogue: no good in a bed, but fine up against a wall.”

Eleanor Roosevelt (American United Nations Diplomat, Humanitarian and First Lady (1933-45), wife of Franklin D. Roosevelt, 32nd US president. 1884-1962)

TIME:  7:42 PM
PLACE:  Jaycees Park
SUBJECT:  Rosebud

I ended up having to take the kiddos into work today, threatening them with bodily harm if they fought, whined or bothered me while we were there.  They did good, sitting in the conference room, watching a movie on their notebook computer and playing with the Mr. Potato Heads that StellaDella brought.  Sometimes threats do work! ;) 

Tonight was football and cheerleading practice again.  I can’t complain – I really don’t mind being there for the 2 hours that they practice.  I bring a magazine or book to read and I find it quite relaxing.  Tonight, I wandered about and found this rosebud on the side of the Jaycees’ building.  Ta-da!  I had my photo for today.
