I've never been known for my coordination. In high school I tried out for cheerleader. Everyone thought I'd be a shoe-in because of my excitement, energy level, school spirit and enthusiasm.
However, one really reeeeally important trait or talent to have for cheerleading is ....coordination.
Both of my sisters can dance. Kathy even taught line-dancing and performed as a Hawaiian dancer. (a kind of an Irish-Hawaiian-dancer..)
Gerri can dance. Also rides a horse reeeelly fast while going around an obstacle course AND shooting real guns with real bullets at real balloons! (it's some kind of cowgirl-thang...I donno...)
I am the one who "cheers them on". And not very well. But I do try....
So, I realized that, because I have been using the computer so much with this blog, I can simultaneously type with both hands!!!!!!!! AT. THE. SAME.TIME!
I am ambi-dexterous on the keyboard! That takes a certain amount of coordination, doesn't it?
I mean, I still sort of "hunt & peck" my way through life, but I can do it with two hands now. Getting to be a pretty fast "hunter and pecker"..ah..hunt & pecker....?
So that amazes me. As a kid I could never get that whole thing about patting your head while rubbing your tummy.
Walking & talking has proven not to be safe - I get lost in one or the other.
But, I can better use a 10- key that's on the left side, and I am mastering the "two-handed typing" thing.
Huh....I am just...... amazing...
Saw this comic in the Sunday funnies and wanted to share it with you ...you probably have the same funny papers in your Sunday paper, but I liked the artwork as well as the verbiage.
Hope you like it too. The comic strip is Buckles...by David Gilbert
Sprinkled dew upon the lawn,
a chilly morn but not for long
the rising sun warms the air
spring to life the days affairs.
Slowly moving across the sky
to summits point and seasons high
shining bright to all behold
shower down a rain of gold.
Too hot to staying full-day sun
the heat so bad it stops the fun
a resting break under tree shade
with ice-filled glass of lemonade.
Cooling time late afternoon
the smell of grills ready soon
restless times when sun to rest
fireflies glow for us to catch.
These longer days go by too fast
as though they weren't meant to last
so every day I'll make some time
to hold a moment....and keep it mine.
g'night, sweet dreams and God bless us eveyone...
