Who doesn't love LEGO,
the iconic, educational, fun-filled
toy of childhood?
LEGO helps build a
sense of accomplishment
no matter your age!
Some may even find
a spiritual aspect
to them --

Leanna of Can We Have a New Witch, Ours Melted just sent me this meme in response to my post. Because I had no idea WTF those alien-looking things are, she very kindly provided me with an explanation in a subsequent email --
People become very familiar with "goat heads" here in the southwest U.S. They are from weeds that grow and when the weeds die in September it is best to not run barefoot outside and you have to leave your shoes outside the door and not wear them into the house. These buggers hide in rugs when brought into the house from shoes. You have to cut them out of the rug fabric with scissors in order to get them out. You have to pull them out of your shoes with tweezers and if they break off the thorns will work their way through the sole of your shoes.
Holy moly! I'm so glad to live in the frozen northern tundra of Canada where these do not exist! I hope that doesn't change with Global Warming. We didn't used to have Lyme Disease and Murder Hornets here either and now we do.
