Half Off Hookas. Random Enough?

Well it's Tuesday again and the best way to get everything out there is to pull out the Un Mom's Random Tuesday Thoughts badge and get to it.
Shall we?

Last week I mentioned that there was a school referendum on the ballot here. It failed miserably. The vote was something like 1200 against and 600 for. The number of people who voted against the new swimming pool was even higher. Hopefully the school board will do some more educating before sending voters back to the polls. If they had their act together they should have done this last year during the presidential election to entice more voters. The turnout for this school referendum was wimpy at best. But yet again, no one asked me.

The Gardener broke his thumb. Smashed it with a hammer at work. He only decided to go to the doctor because it happened at work and wanted it all to be on the up and up. The doc. took an x-ray then burned a hole through his thumbnail to drain off... you know what, I think I'll spare the rest of the details. He's much better though.

I saw this sign last Sunday when we were walking from the restaurant to our car. I was just happy that I had my camera in my purse.

I changed my blog! I have been wanting to make the photos on my blog larger but until now I haven't been able to figure it out. I have learned a ton of computer stuff since I started blogging over a year ago but I still have a lot to learn. I'm still a 2 column blogger but thanks to Shady Lady, this blog post and minima stretch, I now at least have the bigger photos.

This was an indoor photo I took of my brother. I didn't care for the color version but I love it in black and white.

Have a great Tuesday and don't forget to drop by the UnMom for more Random Tuesday thoughts!

Awesome randomness! Thanks for the mention, too. :) I guess I have to get me one of those fancy photo enhancing software thingies if I want to make the header I want for my blog. I just don't have the time to play with it right now. Hmmmm.....maybe in June when the Lizard King returns home for good.

Excellent blog improvement. I have tinkered with mine using a highly effective method of trial and swearing...I mean error. I might go back to two columns to maximize my photo size. It's not like I'm making any money on all these ads.

Owie on the thumb...good thing it didn't happen to you!

Good job on the blog changes! I hate learning computer stuff until I am desparate!

Happy Random Thought Tuesday!

OUCH! I hope he is totally healed soon, and your voters wisen up. I always vote yes on schools, libraries and public safety.

I love minima wide. It actually gives you enough room to post!!!
Hope the thumb feels better soon.
Dang it, I missed the hooka sale.

Love the minima stretch - it's easier on the eyes. I need to simplify my blog to do the same. ;)

OUCH on the thumb! That sounds downright painful!

Happy RTT! :)

Is it sad that I can't remember the code off the top of my head to put a linky in my comments, but I lazily look it up on google and cut and paste it from here.

you have cool photos, lady.

Judging from all I've been reading tonight, I think I'm the only one who doesn't participate in Un-Mom's random thoughts... but I'm cool with that. I was the very last one to have the Vneck limited sweater in middle school.
