Idea "borrowed" from Julie, of Julie's Jewels and Junque fame. She lister her items, but I have this hideously expensive camera that compels me to press it's shutter release a lot to justify owning it. Plus, pictures are fun.
Lovely Wife loves her some refrigerator magnets, so we have a decent collection.
1. This is a photo of Pharah, a little girls we help in Haiti through the Love A Child organization.
2. This is a magnet my Big Brother bought for us at the Don Garlit's Drag Racing Museum up near Ocala, Florida. Big Brother was a hot rod junkie, and the museum was one of his favorite places.
3. A magnet from the Disney/MGM Studios Tower Of Terror ride, holding up Lovely Wife's schedule for open swim times at the local Community College's new aquatic center.
4. A magnet from Juliette, Georgia, where Fried Green Tomatoes was filmed.
5. Picture of Sherry and Bobby Burnette, the founders and operators of Love A Child, mentioned in #1 above. The Burnettes are held up by "Bless This House", the Pillsbury Dough Boy, an E.T./Universal Studios magnet, and an Atlanta magnet.
6. Florida Aquarium magnet. I've never been, but Lovely Wife has. I think as a chaperone for one of the girl's field trips.
7. A photo magnet from Coral Castle, one of the coolest and most mysterious places I've ever been. It's in Homestead, Florida, just below Miami. I wrote posts about it, Here, Here, and Here.
8. Another picture of Sherry and Bobby Burnette of Love A Child, with some of "their" kids in Haiti. Held up by Izzy, the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games mascot, and a Panama City Beach magnet.
9. Our poor broken and glued together Dollywood magnet. We have tile floors that require the occasional offerings for it to break on it's hard self. We hated to throw away our Dollywood magnet, because hey, them things is rare! We've had to throw away various cool ceramic or glass magnets over the years that were demanded in sacrifice. Not to mention the occasional jar of mayonnaise, plate, pyrex baking dish, etc.
10. Ohio in a nutshell. While I was in college in the early to mid 90s, Lovely Wife worked for Chase, and spent a couple of weeks in Columbus for training. This was her souvenir. We spare no expense on the necessities of life, do we?
11. I once went on a trucking run with Big Brother that ended in West Yellowstone, Montana. That's when I bought this magnet. We didn't visit the park at that time, but we had toured it on a previous vacation trip with the family.
12. Smokey Mountains (broken, a partial sacrifice), two Georgia magnets, and a Chili's To Go magnet. For some reason, the tile floor god doesn't like rubber magnets. They stay in good shape even if they fall.
13. An SR-71 Blackbird spy plane magnet.
We have more, but y'all are probably bored stupid. Plus, that's thirteen pics. Until next week...
