Random Five Friday

How about a little randomness?

1.) Last weekend, Marshall attended a “Monster Mania” movie convention.  I’ve mentioned before that he likes to go to those and meet some of the stars he sees in movies. You may recall that I posted a couple of years ago about him meeting Robert England,  who played Freddy Kruger in the Nightmare On Elm Street movies. Last weekend, he met Christini Ricci, “Wednesday” in some of the Addams Family movies. (Just between us, he had a crush on her in the 90’s.)

He’s also a big fan of the Soska twins. Sylvia and Jen. Last weekend, he participated in a “bloody photo op” with them. The Soskas began the bloody photo ops to bring emphasis to their work involving blood donation, definitely a worthy cause. I told him later that he was the happiest looking bloody man I’d ever seen. (Not sure if you can enlarge the picture, but he has “blood” all over his face.)

2.) Yesterday morning’s sunrise, taken with my cell phone.  When I posted this on Facebook, my friend, Donna’s comment was: “Tangerine delight!”.

3.) Yesterday was Sundae’s “gotcha day”. She adopted us 8 years ago.  She’s feeling better, but still is not making it easy for us to give her the meds. At least she isn’t holding a grudge.

4.) You’ve probably heard that April, the giraffe, is expecting another calf any day now. Yes, I’m a fan, and have been watching the live cam quite a bit, hoping to see the birth as it happens. We’ve been to visit April twice at her home at Animal Adventure Park in New York and are planning another trip this summer.

5.) Some of my former classmates from school are meeting tomorrow for lunch to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.  We’ve dubbed our group “The Surry Girls”, and we have our greenery all ready. Will you be wearing green this weekend?

  1. Not familiar with horror/monster movies really but I DO remember “Wednesday”…..my how time flies! Glad Marshall had fun. I will indeed wear green on Sunday AND we will have an Irish feast for dinner. So glad that Sundae seems better….too bad she doesn’t “voluntarily” take her meds though! Have a super weekend……….


  2. Love your random fact posts and your pictures make me smile every single time. I have been thinking about you with all the news about April –hope you catch that birthday live. Have a fabulous weekend, my friend.

  3. Randomness is always a favorite of mine. Beautiful Tangerine Delight – the perfect name for it too. Not a fan of the same genre as Marshall, so it’s all new to me. Looks like he sure enjoys the conventions though – Awesome! If I think about it, I’ll wear green – my husband’s favorite color – no he’s not Irish:) Maybe a birth announcement from April in Monday’s blog post.

  4. What a perfectly stinging random group!! Love Marshall’s pics I too was a fan of petite Wendy from the Adam’s family and he was a happy bloody man!! What a sweet gentle pic of Sundae!! The sunset pic was awesome and I greatly look forward to a green martini with dear friends on Saturday with friends. And oh yes. This redhead wilill have SO much green…😉

  5. We have a party for 43 tonight at the clubhouse. Fun!

  6. Great bunch of randoms as always! You probably know that beautiful ‘tangerine’ sunset photo is my fave! Hope you are watching when April has her second baby. We have no special plans for St. Patrick’s Day but I’ll be wearing green anyway. 🙂

  7. Talk about a Random 5 Friday .. This is it … ! I had a great time (clearly).. Already looking forward to the next time.. Sundae is looking thoughtful, & that pic of you with April is one of the best !

  8. Happy Gotcha Day, Sundae – hopefully your meds are helping.

    Looks like Marshall had a great time at the convention. I love the smile on his face in both pictures. The sunrise is picture perfect. The colors are awesome. Happy Gotcha Day to Sundae!

  10. Happy Cataversary! 8 years is truly wonderful. Sundae is a beautiful girl full of love and sweetness. I hope she feels better soon.
