Thoughts On This And That

I read the cutest post on A Haven for Vee and a similar one she inspired on Scene Through My Eyes.
I have my own "jumbled thoughts" so thought I'd share some of them. Maybe she can get a regular thing going.
As I read about the pansy pressing on  Scene Through My Eyes I thought about my grandma whose name was Pansy. I really miss her and think about her often these days although she's been in heaven for many years. I remember her in capris always.

Which made me think of seeing someone wearing them when they first came back in style and thinking how they looked great on my grandma but I'll never wear them. Never say never, right?
I worked at the college when I had that thought which made me think of the time an electrician came into my office and said he was told I was the one with all the "information". So he asks "why is the sky blue?" Now, I had just watched educational television the night before when they covered that very subject. When I gave him the answer he agreed I did know it all. ha Which led me to think about the time I was wondering why the town of Retrop was named Retrop. The next day there was a story about the town and how they wanted it to be named Porter but that name was already taken so they just spelled it backwards. Which made me think of spelling bees in grade school and how much I loved them. Whenever I finally got a word wrong I was convinced that they were really the ones who were wrong and just didn't know it. That made me remember my dad telling me once how he had only been wrong once in his life. And that was one time when he "thought" he was wrong. lol Wow these thoughts can go on forever. I think I better quit while I'm ahead. Oh, and those pictures of my sweet grandchildren in the middle of the post? That was just a random thought. I think it worked. :D 
Have a great night.
p.s. I'm sharing over at Anything Goes Blog Hop.

I always say that once I thought that I was wrong but I was wrong and actually right that time too!

How fun that you know so much trivia. My husband is a wealth of knowledge as well. Thanks for sharing.

It's cute that my kids still think I'm always right. I fear the teenage years when I fall smashingly fast from the pedestal. I hope you are safe in Oklahoma. Scary stuff. Take care.
