Funky Friday

Problem of the day- copy and fill in the missing numbers in the tally chart:


These are my kitties Charlie and Marley. Charlie is a boy and Marley is a girl. They look very much alike. However, Charlie has a white chin and Marley has a black chin. Plus they wear different colored collars. That helps me tell them apart. In the picture, they are still kittens. I took the picture two years ago.


This is me when I was a little girl at the beach near my house. I was making a sand candle. To make a sand candle, you dig a hole in the damp sand and put in seashells. Then you find a stick and tie a special string, called a wick. The wick goes into the hole. Then you pour melted wax into the sandy hole. When the wax cools, it hardens. You can then take the candle out of the hole. The outside of the candle is sandy and you can see the seashells. My mother had to pour the wax because it was hot. Making sand candles is a fun activity.


Extra extra credit: What is the name of this very old show (it was originally shown before a movie, but can be seen in reruns on television, or on YouTube)?

  1. Did your mother build a fire on the beach to made the was into a liquid so she could help you nake the sand candle?

    1. I’m sure my wonderful mommie hauled the kindling and newspapers and matches and wax cubes to the damp beach to make the fire that made the heat to melt the wax into the liquid. And then risked her tender fingers pouring that hot wax into the damp, sandy hole to create the candle.

    1. Thanks, Solei. I remember that it was a fun experience. I can still remember the smell of the fire that melted the wax for the candle.

    1. Thanks, Ruby. They are even cuter in person. I would bring them in, but they are scared of the car, so we have to be satisfied with looking at cute pictures.
