Day 161 - Like It's 1999

Keep things simple with this one, might as well as there is not a lot to it. The bottle is filled with confetti; tiny pieces of brightly colored strips of paper, crimped and crammed into a small plastic bag, waiting to spill out and work their way into the carpet as the bag is torn open. Hoping someday to be tossed into the air to the sounds of party-horns or cheers of "surprise". Unfortunately for these particles of confetti, they will receive no such opportunity. Instead they will be stationary and celebrated quietly, memorialized within a glass bottle.

I was saving this filler for a special Jones occasion, perhaps Day 200 or something. But, with desperate times come desperate measures and these grand ideas were pushed aside by my empty wallet.

So it was time to make connections and make them quickly. Mom had bought me a four-pack of bottles, bless her heart, and two of which were not repeats. The bottle in today's post is one of the new ones. Homecoming is always a time to celebrate for High Schools and, with it being Autumn, 'tis the season. The label is an ode to school dances. The filler an ode to celebrations.

It's a party,

P.S. - What is Bobby (a.k.a. "Dad") building?

That's wood...so where are these spectacular sparks coming from? Bobby's special handy-man-magic?

  1. Nice picture of my big bald head, you creep! You couldn't photoshop some hair back in there?

    For the record, the sparks are comeing from me using the Dremel tool to cut off the extra length on the screws that were poking up through the shelves at the attachment points.

  2. Did not know that you had lost that much hair. Where did the time go? Maybe that confetti could have been put to good use (colored hair). Aunt Kay
