Well crafty neighbor Barb and I got together and did some stamped coasters.
When my kids were little I gave them cap guns, strapped them in the car seats and let them "shoot" the tumbleweeds on the way to town. I wonder what would happen if I did that today? How long can I last before I get pulled over? Shooting tumbleweeds was a great learning game. You counted the tumbleweeds you "killed", talked about distance, colors etc. it was far more entertaining than plugging in a DVD for them to watch. I even remember some really creative people spraying tumbleweeds white, stacking them up and selling them as snowmen. They shipped the tumbleweeds everywhere. My favorite web sites had pictures of the "tumbleweed ranches" on the Internet that had the darn things scattered all over a wheat field. All that green wheat dotted with brown tumbleweeds. Like cattle grazing.......guess someone fell for that they sold like hotcakes!
