July 17, 2018: The last time I spent more than an hour alone with my dad was probably over thirty years ago. Today, with my step-mother spending a day in the hospital, I spent nine hours with him watching him slide seamlessly from one long-held memory to another, all of them clearer and sharper in his mind than what was happening at the moment. It was enlightening and touching at the same time. Twice he told me he was glad I was there and said he didn’t know what he would do without me. My dad is not given to shows of emotion; in my memory he has never said, “I love you” to me. I think today was close enough. #playmobildiary#playmobil#almost94#imgladiwastheretoo
Terceiro dia e o tema do Desafio de Férias é "Brinquedo Preferido".
Aqui as meninas são bem ecléticas. Uma simples caixa de papelão vira brinquedo, basta lápis de cor, canetinha e giz de cera junto com muita criatividade. Mas confesso que essa casinha faz sucesso porque com ela elas brincam de tudo: montam peças, constroem quartos, cozinhas, brincam com bonequinhas. Enfim, deixam a imaginação criar asas e a hora passa sem elas perceberem.
As a service to my readers, I'd like to post some simple rules to follow when cleaning a firearm. I served in the military and fired an M-16, but these rules apply to everyone:
1. Unload the weapon before cleaning.
2. Keep your finger off the trigger.
3. Clear family members out of the room before working on the firearm.
4. Secure the firearm in a purpose-built vise while working on it.
Following these rules in addition to the golden rule, "Always assume the gun is loaded", can prevent tragedy. #psa#gunsafety#alwaysloaded#familyfirst#commonsense#playmobil
