You Never Know What You'll Find

I love browsing
antique stores
simply because
I never know
what I'll find.


When you were little,
did your parents tell you
to eat what was on your plate
because there were 
starving kids
in China/India/Africa?

Well,
here's a weird twist on that. 


Finish your beer? Really!
Oh, did I mention that I didn't buy it?

Steven: Yes! True words. We just have to stay open and aware to find that every day is a reward for being alive.

Weird! But it is kind of cool looking. Glad you didn't buy it!

One of those things to make you grin and shake your head - someone with a restaurant would pick that up in a hurry!

Love that old baby buggy - they sure don't make them like they used to!

I never heard about the sober kids in India either, but the others plenty of times. I would have bought that sign! Well maybe, then wher to put it!

Could not figure out why my mom didn't just send the food to them. in China, wherever......I was willing to share! :)
