Oh my word! I have THE BEST son!

I told Hubby and our youngest son the challenge topic and he came home with some aluminum stuff from school the day before rollover!!

But... I couldn't get that to work... It was really boring. *sigh* I mean... REALLY boring.

I did try. *sigh again*

So... I shot some coins. They were... *meh* at best... but I liked them okay so, I entered them, and when I showed the shot around (from my phone in the Family Room... he said, "I brought you some Brass and Copper today."


He's a high-schooler... there are girls around there... and he thought about my challenge! LOL! And... he'd already done a great service borrowing the aluminum for me. Mom was appeased... Right? Brownie points already earned. Done.

But yet... he brought me MORE!!

I was actually really, really tired when he remembered to tell me he'd gotten them... a few hours before rollover. I was gonna enter the coins shot even though it was mediocre. But, I thought that I should at least try the extra metals since it would be rude not to... Right?

Then... I saw them! LOL!

They're wonderfully different in color and in form!

What a brilliant son I have !! LOL!

It's probably not going to finish highly, but golly! I'm so glad I didn't just say, "Oh, thanks, Love Muffin... but no need to get them out... I really appreciate the aluminum. You can take it back now. Thanks bunches for thinking of me! You're so good to me." (which is what I was thinking)

This is the guy who doesn't like me to hug him (but will tolerate it).


We all show our love in different ways.

I need to remember that.

You do, too. *smile*

Its a good image of a load of metal. Not very high on the interesting or anything else stakes though.

Looks heavy!
I wonder if this could have had a little more interest if these were on a metal surface, instead of boring white.
