Brandy Day163: ‘Mad Respect Yo’

image

We all want to b a kid again. Back when things were simple. We didn’t have to do ‘adult things’. If we were raised right we had responsibility, but nothing could prepare us for what the future holds. In highschool I was said to have some of the most strict parents in town. I wasn’t allowed to call boys. No phone in my room. Boys certainly were NOT allowed upstairs. The list goes on. If I remember correctly I spent 3/4 of my highschool years grounded. I’m thankful for that. I respected my parents, just not as much as I should have.
Parents and children have such a bond that is irreplaceable. In belief that things go well,  its a bond never to be broken. In the terrible event trust is lost early into the relationship,  its often hard to fix and carry on.

Brandy Day145: Fly Over

Happy Race Day Indy 500 fans!!!
The first flyover took place in 1918 over Fenway Park in Boston at the start of the World Series to symbolize to the crowd the strength and sophistication of the military during World War 1, however it was pigeons.
Flyovers are now done after the national anthem & before outdoor events such as races, football games & baseball games.
Tradition. Thank you to pilots then and now. For all who’ve fought for our freedom and right to enjoy days like today!

Brandy Day102: Laughing! :-)

image

This means more to me than I could explain, the existence of this particular bottle cap made me chuckle first thing this am. It took me to a happy moment and thought.
That’s when you know something is real…when it makes you happy without being present. When you laugh at a memory.
I dont know why this particular cap was left behind, on the beer cooler, in the bar that I was opening, but I am very grateful for it!

Brandy Day96: M.E.H.

This photo reminds me of my childhood. The reason I’m drawn to train tracks. My grandma lived next to tracks. She made everything better. So sensible. A strong, loving, caring & beautiful woman.
I feel a sense of freedom. Standing there looking into the endless existence.
This particular track is about 12 stories above a lake. 90 years old. Solid. How was something so complex built so long ago.
It amazes me how we are where we are from where we’ve come.
Today was a fantastic day! Some great conversation, willingness, friendship & country roads. Lots of country roads <3!
