When my daughter, Maggie was over for the weekend she mentioned that she was hooked on the TV show, Mad Men. She also said that she thought that it was a show that I would enjoy…so look at what I’m now watching while I work on Button Town, USA.
Yup, I rented Season ONE. The show (which is a Drama) is set in the 1960 and it is hilarious!! Having grown up in the 1960s I keep saying “OMG that really did happened!” or “Yes, we did that!!” They will slip in little things that were happening at that time…like…Right Guard Deodorant coming out with the first SPRAY deodorant- everyone had a can and couldn’t get over the idea of spraying! Kids playing Alien with plastic dry cleaner bags OVER their heads…the mom telling them to take the bags into their bedroom to play- YIKES! (and YES my brother and I use to do the same thing!!), the electric typewriter-such complicated technology!! AND of course the cigarette smoking-everywhere-including church! And the clothes…did we REALLY wear those clothes??
Yes, I’m getting hooked on Mad Men!
Speaking of Mad Men…yesterday my Mad Man and I went on our day trip…it was my turn to pick the place…so I chose Robert’s Beach. It’s about 35 minutes from where we live- a place called Cedar. I use to take my class here for field trips.
The beach is composed of sandstone- perfect for tidal pools and finding sea life.
Lots of holes that the waves have made…
The tide was coming in…these Starfish are waiting in a crevice, trying to get away from the drying sun.
Looks like a monster with many toes made this footprint…would be a great creative writing idea…oh well…those days are over!! ;o) Sea lions like to lie on these rocks to sunbath…but none today! What a perfect day to spend at the beach!!
Have a thrilling Thursday and Happy Quilting!~P
