What Is This Little Girl Looking At?

So...WHERE DID WE GO
on vacation?
The three little girls and I went 
someplace special.
New Smyrna Beach, FL
While we were there we found
the annual 
SEA FESTIVAL
just 3 blocks from our residence.
It was a place to stare in awe
at all things new and different.
I snapped this little girl staring
at something that caught her fancy.
Isn't she cute?

WHAT is she LOOKING AT?
Matter of fact-
What are ALL these people looking at?

Well....here's the back view.
Nothing too unusual in seeing someone
pushing someone around in a wheelchair
in a retirement community, is there?
Or IS THERE?
Ummmm...
Smile Girls-
You may have been out-cuted by this
wheelchair full of love.
And for 
A DOLLAR DONATION
you can have YOUR PICTURE taken with
her and her babies.
AND FOR 
ANOTHER DOLLAR DONATION
you can get a 
CHRISTMAS CARD PICTURE
like THIS ONE-
We are now the proud owners of 
THREE OF THESE PICTURES-
one for each girl.
The lady knows a sucker when 
she sees one.
Life is grand!

What amazed me is that she was in long sleeves and a black skirt! Makes me have a hot flash just looking at her :) YOur grandies will remember that always...

Diana, I have been there just once in my life. Went to a stock car race there, while I was vacationing in Daytona. Yes, I used to be a race care junkie. I love the smell of burning rubber on asphalt. Now I love the smell of new lumber and coffee. I feel as if I have lived many lifes.LOL Your girls look so sweet with the granny and her dogs.I love that picture. xoxo,Susie

Shirley said...

Good Morning, Welcome home! I have enjoyed reading your post and I like the Christmas one with her pets. We all are suckers at some time or another. Everybody had a good time and that is the main thing. I bet grandma enjoyed every moment with those girls. I know I would. Have a wonderful day. I am spending mine with my oldest grandson. Hugs and Prayers from your Missouri Friend.

Those dogs are so adorable...and the girls with them!

That clever lady is smiling all the way to the bank, I'm sure! xo

Patty Patterson said...

I hear those retirement centers in Florida are nice but EXPENSIVE! Maybe she's just trying to maintain her lifestyle? You have to admit that's pretty clever.

andrea@townandprairie said...

Her doggies look like they're lovin' it, too! Your vacay by the sea-side sounds fabulous!

Stephanie said...

Looks like you had fun :) Love the Christmas card photo!

Hugs!

Penny @ Penny's Vintage Home said...

The only things cuter than that little lady and her sweet doggies are your grand daughters! Glad to see you are having fun....hugs, Penny

Donna said...

Cute! Sounds like I need to get busy and push Katie around in a wheel chair, I could use some extra spending money, hahaha!

If only I could get my kitties to sit still. Just think of the part-time money! :)

Such cute photos! I'm glad you had a fun vacation making memories and have arrived back home safely.

Karen said...

What great pics! What a coincidence. My daughter's family went to New Smyrna Beach in early June. They've been several times and love it!

I had an aunt and uncle who lived in New Smyrna Beach. We visited there a few times. They lived right on the beach. It was just beautiful.

Love those cute little dogs and your cute little girls too!

I love the lady and her dogs. Hey, when you're on a fixed income and inflation keeps climbing . . . well, a girl's got to do what a girl's got to do :) I love her spunk, and how nice of you to play along and help her out :)
God bless you.
Connie :)

Ruth Kelly said...

At her age, a little something made from a few photos is worth paying for. It is tragic that seniors do not have enough money to live on.

Daniela @Frugal Aint Cheap said...

It was for a good cause...and the dogs were really cute

Ha! That lady's no dummy! Very cute, though :)

How funny! Your girls will remember that for the rest of their lives!

Oh, I would have taken a picture of that too. You should use the one with the girls for Christmas cards. It's soooo cute. Glad you are home safe and had a grand time.

Love,

Too funny! It was worth a couple bucks though, right??!! Glad you had a wonderful time with your angels!!~~Angela

Sherry @ Thrift My House said...

So Sweet! I recently strapped a basket in a baby stroller to hold my Moms Chihuahua. She sleeps in it while my Mom cooks supper. It keeps my Mom from tripping over her.. she stays up under her feet otherwise... very spoiled!
Love the vacation photos! Keep them coming :)

vivian said...
