The one on the left is a "book thong: type. I really like this kind of bookmark for some reason. You can do all kinds of things with them and they are pretty durable.
The other two are of my own invention. I haven't come up with a name for them yet but they work like this:
The black is elastic and it stretches around the front of the book and the page you are on. Then, you "button" the elastic around the little flower (or dragonfly) and it is secure. These are based on a bookmark I saw once at a bookstore (I forget which store) which had elastic like this with an interlocking clasp to hold it together. Not having access to an interlocking clasp (I shopped at Wal Mart!) I just did the button thing. I think it worked out well. It certainly kept my place!
I think the other thing I was supposed to show was Hubby's Christmas present from my parents. A few things to set up the whole scenario. First, we are originally from Cleveland, Ohio, home of the Cleveland Cavaliers basketball team. Next, there is a guy on the Cavs named Anderson something-or-other who has wild hair. Finally, Hubby had mentioned something to my dad about the hair when Dad was in Texas and the two of them were watching a Cavs game. It was a give away night at the arena and the crowd was all wearing . . . .
Anderson's hair! Hubby apparently said it would be neat to have some hair like that and . . . voila! Now he has hair like that! For those of you who think Hubby looks like this all the time - the hair is a wig and is quite out of character for Hubby. In fact, when he put this on, I couldn't stop laughing until he took it off! It is wild!
The real Anderson Whoever is on the right in this photo. Notice the hair. I know this isn't the best shot of the hair but I tried!
That is it for today. I will be catching up on my blog reading this week (after a nap) and hope you are all having a super New Year so far!
Voice Update: My voice is doing well. I was really spotty in doing my exercises while in Ohio but I am back on track today!
