"She sells seashells down by the seashore."
The moment for the day:
I have a thing for seashells. I have been known to drop down in an area that has a lot of seashells and become fairly concentrated in my searching. I will carry them home in anything I can find. An old cup, a pocket, a t-shirt, the beach bag. Each one is a treasure to me.
That's why I stopped dead in my tracks on my walk today when I saw this:
Girls after my own heart!!!
With precision and care, they were lining up each found treasure. The seashells had been rinsed, lined up to dry and...
ready for sale.
One penny each.
Oh, you might say I was severely tempted. You could even say I was willing to drag my family back to the house for some dollar bills....ummm, I mean change. Sadly, I did not do this. Can you imagine how exciting it would have been for them to sell the shells? Can you imagine how cool these would look in a glass jar? (I need another glass jar full of shells like a hole in my head. But I have heard holes are in fashion this summer....)
I wonder if they will be back at it tomorrow?
