I had these digital images from Delicious Doodles titled Skully Chess Pieces and I decided to print them and make tags. If you click on the picture - you can enlarge it to see the skulls better. From left to right: The Bishop, The King, The Knight, The Pawn, The Queen and The Rook. Just a fun project I completed a few weeks back! Thanks for taking a peek!

Well, today started out fine - but went sort of crazy later! I was on my way home from Springfield this afternoon and not 1, but 2, road ragers had me in their sights - I have no clue why! I'm minding my own business and a van comes up and he was so close, I wanted to pop the trunk for him - and then he just kept honking. I am on a 2 way road, Rte. 54 and I am headed East. There are plenty of times he could have passed me - so I am getting a bit irritated and, finally, he went around - and what's he do - slam on his brakes right in front of me. And, then he tears off. Not 5 minutes later, a white truck does the exact same thing - so by this time, I am really pretty angry and called the police and gave them this guy's license plate. A few miles ahead was a town with a local policeman sitting on side of the road - and the guy slows way down and so do I. The policeman pulls in behind the truck and in front of me. Well, the car behind me is watching all of this and the policeman pulls over the truck and I stop and the car behind me stops. The lady in the car behind me comes up and says she saw it all. The policeman comes back and asks which of us called - and I told him I did - but only because this was a second incident of the day - and the lady indicates she saw it all. I guess I wasn't the only person that had called about this guy in the truck - there had been other complaints about him in the past. So, the policeman issued a ticket and gave me the date to appear as well - and the lady said she would be there too. So, we will see what happens.
OKAY - now that I have that off my chest - moving on to my tag:

If you will click on the close-up of the photo (directly above) - you will see a whole line of wonderful and adorable turtles. The first thing that came to mind is that they had formed a Conga line (I know - right?!) Anyway - I love this picture and it just makes me smile. I had fun putting this layout together. I didn't add any flowers - as it is pretty masculine.
