The Good. The Random. The Fun. v. 33

The Good:
Supermoon anyone? Just so gorgeous!

The Random:
This hilarious mug arrived in the mail this week from Avi. She thought a teacher did need just one more mug, especially if it was this mug! 

The Fun:
Heard of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge? It was started by a former Boston College baseball player who has the horrid disease. He challenged some friends to dump ice water over their heads or donate to his charity, then pass on the challenge. It's really going viral, especially up here. A former student challenged me and...
I did it - and donated! Will you take the challenge (blanket challenge here!) or donate - donations have surged and maybe all the cold water will help find a cure!

I guess the Mother in me is going to come out in this comment but, "for goodness sake be careful if you drink from that could poke your eye out with that!" :)

Love the moon shot, wish I had thought of taking a pic. Love that mug too...I would actually like to open my cupboard and see that mug, lol.
Ice bucket challenge? On a hot day maybe...I'm cold just thinking about it, and I did the polar bear swim one year. I'm getting too old.

LOVE your moon photo! I thought about trying to shoot it, especially since I had been renting a 70-200mm 2.8, but I never got around to it. So many other things happening.

The mug cracked me up!

Great job on the ALS challenge! A friend challenged me yesterday - I have yet to do it.
