ABC Wednesday: "T"

Since I am always the last to post (Ok, maybe I'm not, but it feels like it) because I live in the Western Hemisphere. I decided to post early so I could be one of the cool kids.

My father-in-law is such a prankster. He couldn't find any matches, so he though it would be a good idea to light my sister-in-law's cake with a blow torch. I'm sure he could have found some matches if he looked, but he likes to play on the wild side.



At the Blossom Parade they always have a bunch of old cars. I love watching them drive by and imagining what it would have been like back then. I secretly wish I could travel through time and experience all of the culture of the past. It really isn't a secret, I'm a big dork, and that's what big dorks dream about.

This year's parade featured a bright red tractor...



and behind him was this cute little fellow on a cute little yellow tractor.



And just to scare you a little, and make sure you are paying attention...



To see more T photos head over to Mrs. Nesbitt's Place (she's one of the cool kids).

Hahahaha, you father-in-law is just fantastic. How could he come up with that? Hahaha, it's so fun!

And your other T-shots is very nice too. And your Tarantella is very cute. My daughter has a tarantella who has a pink shell. But I'm a litlebit afraid for her tarantella;)

So, how did the Birthday Cake turn out??? Hope not too crispy.

Personally I'd have used the blow torch on the Tarantula!!! (Just kidding in case there are any tarantula lovers out there, lol!)

Great post.

This is my second Tarantula of the day - maybe next year I'll skip letter "T"! But then I'd miss all the fun stuff, like torching the candles. Did the candles survive this treatment? Love the bright Tractors, too.

It's a great idea to light the candles with a blow torch. The tarantula is scary but beautiful!

He should have taken the blowtorch to the spider. Eek!
