I’m currently reading a book called The Maid. It’s a fictional retelling of the story of Joan of Arc (not to mention a distant cry from my typical reading material: celebrity biographies.  Seriously.  It might actually be an illness. I’ve read them all!  Except only about 20 pages of David Archuleta’s.  Sorry kid, you’re cute and everything, but no one should be writing their memoirs at age 19!  It’s boring!)
Annnnyway, this old bench totally reminds me of a part in the aforementioned book where two men are discussing the “attributes” of Joan like they were buying a horse or something:  “She’s not much to look at, but she’s sturdy.  Good birthing hips.” Same goes for this bench.  Minus the birthing hips part.
But Sara and Stacy from SugarScout worked their magic and made her more than just a sturdy seat; she really stands out in a crowd now!

    To bad you didn’t read beyond the 20 pages. Very inspiring read for today’s youth. I have several grandchildren who would never read a memoir of old folk but didn’t need any encouragement to read David A’s book of hard work and dreaming big in spite of your fears.

    You need to look outside of the box.

    You’re right we all read what we want. But was this necessary?

    “Sorry kid, you’re cute and everything, but no one should be writing their memoirs at age 19! It’s boring!)”

    Just not very nice IMO. You weren’t the intended audience.

    Wow. Last time I checked she was the author of this here blog. And she can have any opinion she wants. And if you dont like it, write a whole post about how much you love it on your own blog. She probably wont come over to you blog and tell you it’s not ok to put up wood paneling, or paint an entire room red. Because she has more tact than that. Maybe you could show her more respect too.
    Lindsey- thanks for being funny. I enjoy your humor!

    You’re right. This isn’t my blog and she could and should write anything she wants. But when you’re writing in a public forum you should expect responses that might not be in agreement.

    I love funny and witty but not at the expense of someone else.

    I agree that she is writing publicly, but it’s still her space. And just because you have a difference of opinion, that does not mean you need to voice it “at the expense of someone else”. We all have a difference of opinion. That’s what makes us all unique.

    I personally could have written a very intertaining memoir at 19, but being now in my 60’s could have added a few more books easily.
    Boring, no people are too inspiring and interesting. We are all meant to learn from each other at any age. Thanks for listening.
    Oh, yes the bench is striking and bold.:)
