    A Smile



    Let me know if you want these to continue...... or not.

    Re: A Smile

    Anita, If you are asking if we want your daily trivia thread to continue, I enjoy it very much. Is putting it together becoming a chore? If so, it's fine to discontinue it. We love you whether you do it or not.Hugs.jpg

      Re: A Smile

      Barb, I was wondering if y'all wanted to continue seeing a smile once in awhile.
      I'll continue the trivia on weekdays until I run out of Trivia....which might take years?
      But if y'all get tired of trivia, just say so......no hurt feelings. Honest!.....although I do love trivia....I know, I'm "different."

        I'm with Barb. I like them all.

          Keep up the great job, Anita. I especially love the chalk pics. What an amazing talent the artist has. Do you have any information about him? I'd like to find out more.

            From his site:



            David Zinn has been creating original artwork in and around Ann Arbor since 1987, serving all manner of commercial clients from small shops to major municipalities while simultaneously sneaking “pointless” art into the world at large. His professional commissions have included theatrical posters, business logos, educational cartoons, landfill murals, environmental superheroes, corporate allegories and hand-painted dump trucks. His less practical creations have involved bar coasters, restaurant placemats, cake icing, and snow.

            David’s temporary street art is composed entirely of chalk, charcoal and found objects, and is always improvised on location. Most of these drawings have appeared on sidewalks in Ann Arbor and elsewhere in Michigan, but many have surfaced as far away as subway platforms in Manhattan, village squares in Sweden and street corners in Taiwan. Zinn’s chalk work began in 2001 as an excuse to linger outdoors, but has since achieved global notoriety through sharing on the pages of Facebook, Instagram, Huffington Post, Graffiti Art Magazine, Bored Panda, Central China Television, Street Art Utopia, and Archie McPhee’s Endless Geyser of Awesome. His most frequent characters are Sluggo, a bright green monster with stalk eyes and irreverent habits, and Philomena, a phlegmatic flying pig. As of 2013, there have been a lot of mice as well.

            David is a self-taught artist with a degree in Creative Writing and English Language from the Residential College of the University of Michigan. He has taught creative writing and scenic painting, performed in and directed several Gilbert & Sullivan operas, recorded audiobooks, and hosted two children’s radio shows (The Rug Rat Revue on WCBN-FM and The Mud Pie Cafe on Michigan Radio). David is also an avid whistler, a haphazard ukulele player, and a dutiful shirker.

                TRUTH is seldom appreciated, unless you happen to agree with it. When you don't agree, you just call it rude.

                    I enjoy both tremendous! But I often think of all the work and time you spend doing them. Don't make it hard for you .

                      God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
                      The stash to make a quilt to help me cope,
                      A quilt to give to comfort those I love in times of hurt, fear and uncertainty.
                      And the courage to keep on sewing when life itself seems held together by a single thread of hope.

                        I love the trivia and my husband enjoys that I share them with him, while we have our morning coffees. Love the smiles. Thanks for posting. If it gets too much, you could scale back to Wonder Wednesdays. Trivia TuesdayTs and Thursdays, Smiles for Saturday And Sunday.

                        Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

                        Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

                          That reminded me of that commercial of the guy at the computer and said okay I'm done reading the internet. I can get lost for hours just looking at Pinterest alone!

                          I love both of your daily offerings
