Lollipops, Lily Pads, and Laxatives — My Alphabe-Thursday — "L" — Things in a Row — Two Questions — MidWeek Blues
"L" is for LolliPops, Lily Pads, and Laxative Pills and Potients.
Things I didn't get a picture of? KP with her Lollipop.
When I went to the bank, at the drive in window, the teller there offered and gave KP a Lollipop. KP was very proud of that Lollipop.
The large 'all day sucker' type Lollipops on the stand were at the Dilan's Candy Bar
candy shop in the Galleria Mall in Houston. KP wasn't there, neither was Mrs. Jim or Karen, so I came out of that store with only the pictures. No candy.
I took the pillar sales pole picture for Pat of Thursday's Things in a Row as well as being an "L" word, but she is out this Thursday on holiday.
Things I didn't get a picture of? KP feeding the fishes, turtles, and ducks.
Another picture I didn't get? Yes, there was (not) one. A couple of weeks ago when I was playing golf with the guys, my ball went in a little pond. And guess what? My ball was sitting on a large floating Lily pad.
But no picture, my camera was in the golf cart over on the cart path. [In the pictures below, note the pond's water in the little half moon window.]
"L" is for Laxative. For my semi-annual cardio checkup yesterday I had to give a blood sample, take a stress test while waking and running on the treadmill, and have my body's arteries checked by sonogram.

— My Two Questions for this week (you can answer just one if you wish):
1. What is your Lollipop story? Everyone has one.
Bonus Question: Rumored possible government regulation of Laxatives, what would be any possible benefit of that be to you?
Such Candy always brings back memories (smile). All the photos are nice but the ones with the little girl is most beautiful. Thanks for sharing my friend.
He loves the little DumDums too - from the bank.
And your ball on the lily pad was kind of amazing.
You were busy this week writing all of this.
I have had no experiences with lily pads - except a great story how they multiply so fast.
And lollipops - if that were the only candy on earth - I'd be skinny!
2. Don't have a lily pad story either.
3. I know nothing about the government controlling laxatives.
Have a terrific day. :)
No Lilly pad stories, I can't remember the last time I saw one.
Bonus question: makes no difference to me one way or the other.
Lilypads are lounge chairs for frogs and we have a chorus of them here every night.
Bonus question: Are you sh*ttin' me? Nah..... For real?? Don't tell my mister that.
I am not a fan of lily-pads but they look great where they belong.
I did not know about the government controlling the laxatives, gees.
I hope you stay healthy and always happy. best, amanda
HA HA LOVE ( L Word ) it :)
Laxatives are like medicine and should only be taken when needed by why regulate? Abuse can cause harm but so could a dozen other things, like too many all day suckers. :-)
I think lily pads are so lovely. I can almost imagine a little princess sleeping afloat on one of these in a little pond. Perhaps, her prince a big old Toad will come to her rescue and carry her away on his back.
This has been a likeable Alphabe-Thursday & 2Q post! ^.^
1. Don't have a story for lollipops.
2. Don't have a lily pad story either.
Have a great day!
I am yet to see a real life water lily. I really want to.
Lollipop story? Only how the banks and dentists and docs and schools keep offering my kids lollipop. I'd rather they give my kid a book, pencils etc.
Have a lovely weekend!
I think it takes some talent to hit a ball so it lands on a lilypad.
a lilypad story? I'm thinking of an activity at a local amusement park that we used to take the kids to. You had to walk across the water on lilypads that were moving--rather challenging.
I can't even imagine a golf ball landing on a lily pad without sliding off!
And...man...you have willpower. Not buying candy. ACCCCKKK!!!!
Laxative stories. Sigh. Getting ready for the colonscopy testing is always such a ... ummm... bother. I hope everything is going okay with you, though, and that this is mostly routine testing!
Thanks for a fun link for the letter 'L'.
I always enjoy visiting you and your family!
