Lament of a Malcontent Fragment

It is Friday and time once again for the fun and generally easy Fragmented Friday party over at Mrs. 4444's. You can join in too, it really is a nice way to wrap up the week and clear your posting to do list of all those undeveloped posts.  

Half-Past Kissin' Time
Occasionally the merry-go-round spins so fast one wonders how on earth they are going to get off. That is exactly how I have felt for the last few weeks.  I dare say it has resulted in rather sporadic posts and a number of unhappy fragments that are so undeveloped even I have no idea what they are about....LOL

But here we go lets see if we can give a few of those sad frags a home.

I came across this article on why we see faces' that aren't really there. It reminded me of how often I find faces in the oddest of places.... a tree; the clouds; rocks; fences and so forth. The plan was to go out and about and photograph a good selection of faces.... well that didn't happen. So instead I looked in my archives and all I could find that hadn't found it's way into a prior post was this scene I captured a few summers ago of Mickey Mouse being chased by a little dog. 

I admit to being clueless at times, but generally when that happens  my search to correct my lack of knowledge begins in haste. So when I saw this car with the popular Keep Calm sticker on the back and realized it said Keep Calm and Chive On I couldn't help wondering what does the 'chive' refer too?  Not only did it have the sticker but the license plate said KCCO. So, I snapped the shot and played with it to put on Instagram but decided to save it till I knew what it was all about. For those of you that don't know, the sticker and license plate refer to a popular T-shirt company that caters to those with shall we say a warped sense of humor, named The Chivery

So much for eating healthy! I have a feeling I will be enjoying a lot of these this summer. One can not live by health food
Although I do plan on trying this  tasty and healthy recipe out.

Tuesday morning I was all set to sit down and get caught up on some work, when I got a call from the school.  It seems my granddaughter trip over pebbles and injured her wrist and knee. So it was off the the ER for us. Thankfully the wrist wasn't broken just sprained. 

Stress and drama come into everyone's life at some time or another and I guess we were overdue for it last week. There are many ways to deal with life but one of my favorite ways to deal with stress is through the use of meditation and when that doesn't work, a night out playing pool is always good. Mrs. G and I spent an enjoyable few hours playing pool last weekend.

Have a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day Weekend!
But please take a moment to remember the reason for this holiday. 
We at Artistix Network offer our heart felt thanks and appreciation to all service members and their family's.

Glad to hear your granddaughter has no broken bones. When you feel stressed out have a cup of tea. The ritual of making the tea and enjoying it will have a calming effect.

The cup of tea idea is a good one. Of course any reason to go out with friends is a good one!
I am glad your granddaughter is okay. Those calls from school sure can be stressful!
We are dieting too. We are doing ok but we need to add more exercise.
Have a safe weekend!

Something must have been in the air this week. My son fell off his bike on Wednesday and had to be rushed to the doc for his wrist,a swell. His was a sprain, too -- yay! I would have hated for him to start the summer with a cast!

I have not played pool in a long long time. I did not recognize the chive reference. Thanks for that important web research.
Your fragment list was long and varied as I hope all our lives are.
