Do you think it’s normal for a 44 year-old woman with a trick knee to be preoccupied with learning this manuevar? The truth is last year I took the MSF (motorcycle safety foundation) course and passed. That means I passed the driving portion of the test. That means I just have to pass the written portion of the test. Put those two together and see a big M on my driver’s license. If you live within a 100 mile radius of LA I know you are gasping for breath and white knuckling your mouse and calculating the statistical probability that you might ever have the misfortune of crossing paths with me while on the road. Oh, come on. Don’t be like that. I’m not even shopping for a bike. Yet.
If Lianne, my favorite little hause frau, who took the course with me, would stop having tupperwear parties, hitting the kid’s birthday circuit, and attending scrapbook retreats long enough to study for the test with me, we might make our dream of becoming motorcycle mamas and joining the IRON ANGELS more than just a pipe dream. (next week during Grammar I’m going to ask my 2nd graders to identify whether that is A. a sentence fragment B. run-on sentence C. other) In the meantime I’m going to continue studying this diagram.
Forgive me for not telling you the title of the book I was reading yesterday. I assumed you’d click on the photo of the book and read it upside down like good little detectives. It’s off to the right over there. The Way The Crow Flies.
More purple in the form of a pretty Princess Flower spotted this morning on my morning stroll. The journal offerings for the day are from my autumn 2006 visual journal and a page from the current journal.
