my POETRY | ANNI'S BOOK CRITIQUES | my ART | my BIRD photography | MLB | NFL | hurricanes



Got a good reason For taking the easy way out



About | Theme: "SUPPORT" | Roll
Next week "What IS That?"


This week, the theme prompt is support. My thoughts turned to support as in athletic equipment, like a runner's bra or the athletic support cups. And I made a special effort to go into the Sports shop here, Academy Sports, --I spied something of a much cuter quality for a photo. And when I saw it....I had to have it! Afterall, our dear President of the USofA wants all his citizens to spend, spend, spend. To boost the economy right? So, I did the thing that most good citizens would do! I bought it. And it shows support too [not only supporting our leader --oh my --did I just type that?-- I'm supporting a team also.] Tho, quite different than what I had in mind-------



My new, and cute-
RALLY MONKEY for the
Houston Astros!
[check out his headband and foot!! Way cool if you ask me]

[Psssssst?!! They need all the help and support they can get this season!! Last night's game from Washington? The 'stros were shut out? TEN to nothin'?!! What pathetic ball they're playing this year.]

  18. Wish I had seen that when I was buying Astros jerseys for my daughter! How cute! Why is it that when we have pitchers, we don't have hitters, and when we have hitters, we don't have pitchers? Is it just a test of our character?

    ReplyDelete
  19. HAHA! Good one, Anni! Our sports teams definitely need out support and you're right, so do our leaders. *grin*

  33. Sorry that I have not been around much this week..just one of those busy weeks for me. I love your little money..Support was a fun word and like you the first thing I thought about was the new bras that I just found that give GREAT SUPPORT!! BUT I did not use that..but went to a bridge instead!! Smile!! We thought alike.

  34. You left me such a nice invitation to visit you, that I visit YOU first, how's that huh?

    And I agree, one should spend some money every once in a while, especially if the things you spend your money on support good causes and sport teams in need!!!!
