Mo's Manic Monday - Marble

Posted: Monday, July 16, 2007 by Travis Cody in

Welcome to another Manic Monday with Morgen. Today's theme is Marble. Don't forget to visit MM HQ at It's A Blog Eat Blog World.

I've been busy from sunup Saturday morning to sundown Sunday evening. So there wasn't much time to write anything for my Marble post.

I got up early Saturday morning and hit the road headed south. I spent most of the day at a great car show. My mom's 1966 Mustang won a sponsor favorite award. YAY! While we were waiting to pick up the trophy, the DJ played Rock Around the Clock. I couldn't resist - Mom and I broke out in spontaneous dance! It was great!

After the car show we went to see Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Wooooooooooooooooooooo!! I'll be seeing it again soon. It met all of my expectations. I'm very pleased with it.

Sunday was all about checking out the paint job on my stepdad's 1940 Ford Fordor Sedan, chatting, and driving home in ugly Sunday evening traffic.

So here's my offering for Marble. Happy MM!

Historic Marbles

Marble Trout
