Patriotic, dance moves and old magazine

- Hairdresser Tim's lawn jockey* displays a bit of patriotism. And my camera lens definitely picks up drizzle - yesterday was the fifth day in a row of rain. Oh rain - how I at least love that you are keeping the pollen off my car. I hear we'll see the sun on Saturday. Yay!

- Enjoying the conversation between Tim and another client while I wait. They are both of Native American heritage and compete in dance competitions at pow wows. Tim demonstrates how a crouching dance move is actually easier on ones back.

- Reading an issue of Cosmo Girl from July 2006 and feeling a little entitled to criticize the magazine selection at my hairdresser's. :) (It was that or hairdresser trade magazines.) I offer to bring him some old Southern Living or Food & Wine magazines and he is aghast that his clientele will think that too pedestrian. Better than Cosmo Girl, July 2006 - I'm just sayin'.

What's wrong with Southern Living? I like it. (mail ladies know all the magazines lol)

Big ol' flag for such a little guy. :D

I would love to have rain here as they're forecasting snow tonight or tomorrow.

A five year old mag?

The rain and flag
with a wee little man
no pollen on my car
for it washed by rain

When two speak
a dance they do
This I'll stay out of
for desk49 has not clue

Cosmo Girl I have not read
what is wrong with it,
is it old and dead

Gosh, I used to read so many magazines. But glad I found all these blogs, which are even better.

Ahhhh, 5 days of rain -- I could handle that. The grass is greener, eh... And literally for you with all the precipitation.

I love crouching! So great for so many muscles -- ones I didn't evenknow I had.

The lawn jockey was interesting! Trying to envision this: "Tim demonstrates how a crouching dance move is actually easier on ones back;"

Hope you do see the sun on Sat. Lynn!

I wish that we had that rain! Wildfires are a huge danger here due to the drought.

Sparkling Red said...

Cosmo Girl? Oh my gosh, I think I'd rather stare at a blank wall. ;-)

Magazines at hairdressers are always awful. I always take a book, in fact it's the only time I read one. :D

We've had a nice sunny week so far in the UK.

FB -

I'll bet! So people in Michigan get Southern Living? That's interesting. It is a lovely magazine though - I used to read it at my parents and then they stopped subscribing to it. I was so sad, but then my sister started giving me a subscription to it for Christmas.

G -

I know - it sounds as if I am complaining about the rain, but I'm not really. It's unusual for us to have so much at once though.

Ellis -

I don't know too many adults who read Cosmo Girl - I'm actually surprised he had it. :)

Jannie -

Blogs do make great reading material, huh? I'm on them more than magazines for sure.

You've probably seen Native American dancing in films and seen them do that - they sort of crouch and lean in and such. He demonstrated it last night. :) I went to a pow pow at nearby Stone Mountain a few years ago and watched him perform - he wins all the time.

Mama Zen -

See - what's that about? So weird how the weather differs around the country. I don't mind the rain at all - but am beginning to feel waterlogged.

Sparkling Red -

I admit to needing entertainment while the color treatment is working its magic on my hair for a half hour or so. :) My mind ran over what might be in my car, but there was nothing else really.

Joe -

I'm glad you are having good weather. And so true about the reading material at hairdressers. :)

TALON said...

lol @ at the seriously out-of-date magazine! I thought my dentist's magazine selection was bad! :)

Hope you get a ton of sun this weekend. I'm hoping any more moisture we get is in that rain form. It sure beats the white stuff!

ileana said...

I'm loving the patriotic lawn jockey! :)

I also think a little Food & Wine wouldn't hurt the spirits of those waiting to get their hair done...it has to be better than Cosmo Girl. Geez! lol

Happy Weekend, amiga!!

Riot Kitty said...

I hear we may get sun in 2012 if I call upon my Apache roots and do a sun dance...

Snaggle Tooth said...

Sorry about all that rain there- alot of "orbs"
It's better than the 4 inches of snow we had followed by heavy rain to drive home from work in- Very slushy n cold. The Bourne Bridge was closed from ice accidents for a few hours-
Nice to get those free dance demos-Thanks to visiting fellow dance brothers.
Don't tell me he refused free mags! (Bring them n leave them anyway-)
Did you ask Tim if there was a "stop the rain" dance?

Talon -

I have taken a book with me before, but there is so much commotion around that place that it's difficult to concentrate. Next time I'll take my own magazine.

Ily -

Maybe Food & Wine is the ticket! :) You have a great weekend, too.

Riot Kitty -

The sun came out a little in the late afternoon - I almost collapsed with joy.

Snaggle -

Hopefully that snow is on the wane - it's hard to imagine weather climates being so different.
