Thanks to Lexa Cain and our trusty co-hosts, L.G. Keltner of Writing Off The Edge and Katie at Cyborg Mom

1.  I got my teeth cleaned. No cavities! Or at my age? I'm happy none broke. I was eating popcorn at a football game this fall, and my tooth broke. No more grinding kernels. Can't say mom never warned me. 

2. We had another blast of snow. Sure, everyone is getting tired of it, but it's still beautiful and there's a special glee in having the school call and cancel. 

3. It's Cole's birthday! Oh, my goodness. Baby #2 is nineteen years old!


He went from a ham who was willing to try Alfalfa hair.... 



To serious guy. 
Not really, this is the same ham all grown up practice his "contemplative" face.

Have you read Medeia's new book?

Excellent story. I was expecting the usual story of teen survival, which was good. But then, the story took a twist and I was totally hooked. I was close to the end, but the family wanted dinner, so I had to put the my Kindle on auto read, set it in the kitchen window, and listened to the Kindle version of Siri get me to the end. 

I had ideas about what the 52 Likes was all about, but I wasn't even in the same ball park.

  1. I Love popcorn but have to leave it alone. No snow, but we have black ice. That's one contemplative ham!!

    Enjoy your weekend, (smile).

  2. I'm always scared of breaking my teeth since both of my front teeth have small chips in them. They're not that noticeable but it still bugs me. Happy birthday to Cole! I like the "contemplative" face, lol.

    I know what you mean about no broken teeth. Crowns suck.

  5. Ha ha ha...my mom (and all my family) warns me about crunching ice. Another friend gives me all the medical voodoo: "You might need more iron! Ice crunching is a sign!"

    I just like ice. It's a much better addiction that some I've seen.

    1. I like to crunch ice too, but I am consistently low on iron too, so hmmm. Never knew that!

  6. Your ginger-haired boy is all grown up! Congrats on no cavities. Breaking teeth is horrible. I had no idea that the older you get, the more you're just eating normal stuff and a freaking tooth breaks! What's up with that? Happy Birthday Cole!!

    1. The unfairness of it all, Lexa! It's not fair. Next thing I know, I'll be worrying about breaking bones.

  7. Happy Birthday to Cole!

    I probably shouldn't be admitting this...but I haven't been to the dentist in a long, long time.

    1. Uh oh...I'd say you better go, but if you don't have insurance, it's expensive.

  8. Congrats about the dentist! I'm convinced they're all secretly addicted to pain :(

    1. LOL. My dentist is a pretty nice guy. I don't think he likes pain at all.

  9. No ice, lots of snow. Looks like a nice youngster. Amazing how they are suddenly adults isn't it? Yuk, teeth, dentistry, hate it all.

    1. It is amazing how fast he grew up. Everyone warned me, but I didn't believe it until it happened.

  10. I suffered through years of braces, head gear, rubber bands, extractions and - through it all - popcorn was the devil. But it's such a good snack.

    Cole has great hair. Is his dad a red head?

    Happy weekend, my friend.

    1. I was fortunate enough to get to skip braces!

      Nope, his dad has black hair. We do have red heads in our families, so no DNA required ;)

  11. I used to love going to the dentist - less so now I'm older. And they stopped giving me stickers!

    Happy birthday to baby #2 :-)

    1. It's all fixed. Popcorn and I are back to being buddies. I just avoid the kernels now.

  13. Happy birthday to Cole.

    Thank you for featuring my book. :)

    I'm more careful with my teeth. I never thought I would have to be, but the older I get the more fragile they seem to be.

    1. My pleasure!

      Yes, it's best to take care of them now.

  14. I didn't have cavities most of my life and now every time I go, I have at least one. I think I'm eating too much chocolate!

    1. I had so many cavities when I was young, my molars are all metal. I have a bionic mouth!

  15. NINETEEN?? How does the time do that? And yes, I've broken teeth before--sigh.

  16. Now I'm terrified of popcorn. Thanks.

    If it's any consolation, I once dated a girl who tried to be sweet and cook me clam pasta. She then inadvertently left a clam shell still inside. Took a huge bite, and cracked my tooth wide open.

    1. LOL. Actually, that does make me feel better. Makes it less an age problem and more a voracious eater problem!

  17. I cringed when you said your tooth broke. That sounds horrifying :P

    1. It didn't hurt so much, but it was really sharp and annoying.

  18. Love the photos of your son, and happy birthday to him! I remember when my son was 19... nine years ago! Arg. SO sorry about the cracked tooth. What a pain, and so expensive to fix! You've got my curiosity antenna roaming over 52 Likes...!
