Sk8er boi Skeeter guy

I think The Pensioner looks pretty darn good in this pic. My hair is much more white than his but then his dad’s hair stayed thick and dark through most of his life. There are my beauteous impatiens again. Before we left for our 4th of July odyssey, they looked healthy but there weren’t a lot of flowers for some reason. TP soaked them with water before we left and if there wasn’t enough rain while we were gone, Mouse must’ve watered them because they are glorious now.

I was noodling around about titles today and somehow an old song “Sk8er Boi” came into my consciousness. Something like “Sk8er Boi, seeya later boi”, well, this is 2019 and we have The Google so here are the lyrics or someone’s translation of them. I didn’t hear this song frequently. Looking it up, I see it’s an Avril Lavigne song, who I don’t believe was a fave of the beach urchins, at least not my branch of them. I heard it (and enjoyed it) in its entirety upstairs at the moomincabin once when the youngest of the clan played it as I was doing something on whatever computer was up there at the time.

When I was a teenager, I vowed that when I had my own teenagers, I would NEVER complain about their music. Disclaimer: my parents didn’t really complain about my music but it could be such an issue with some people in those days. Jeebus. So I didn’t complain about my kids’ music. Actually I enjoyed most of the music they listened to when they were teenagers and I was driving them and their friends all over town in the POC. I do remember a day during Mouse’s duration of permit-driving when we were about to embark on a River Ride and I said something like, “Put whatever music you want on except I’m a little tired of Ani.” And that was okay with her.

There is a skatepark near us and it has been a huge success. Everyone who uses it seems to be polite and there have been numerous stories about how older, more expert skateboarders have helped young children. Clap clap clap Planet Ann Arbor.

    I don’t know if Mouse watered, but we had a ton of rain on July 4th. And other days when you were gone. 😉

    I think I used to like some Avril Lavigne songs, although not that one. I wasn’t a huge fan of my kids’ music, but it wasn’t awful either. Like most things, it’s a matter of taste and we all have different ones. Not worth making a big deal over. 🙂 I am envious of those whose hair stays dark without help from the beautician.
