Friday fragments

Welcome to Friday fragments, my weekly recap of topics too big to forget, yet too small to be their own post.

My friend Jared sent me this photo of a crazy tombstone. What do you suppose they were thinking when they ordered this?

Target will soon offer a store credit card that gives you 5% off all your purchases, not just on the day you apply, but every time you use it. Read about it here.

I'm still mad that you can't buy in-season merchandise once the season starts.

Jared also supplied me with this funny saying I'd like to have on a T-shirt:
I took Big Ella to the collector car 'Cruise-in' again yesterday after work. TGIFriday sponsors a free 'Cruise-in', complete with DJ, and awards a $75. TGIFriday gift card to the winner each week. I don't care about the judging, but enjoy looking at the other cars and hanging out with other car enthusiasts.

Afterward I met Spouse, Steven & Thad, and the Bob's at our friend Joe's place for dinner. Since the guys agreed to turn it into a surprise for Spouse's birthday, they brought cards and balloons. We ate and talked and had a very nice time.

A friend sent me this:
I wonder where those jeans can be purchased?

The condo remodeling is progressing well but our contractor will not finish this afternoon as expected. So we'll have to wait until next weekend to view the finished project get it listed and rented. I'm excited to see it!

We don't have any exciting plans for the weekend, since we thought we would be driving back to VA. Its supposed to be super hot so I'm not sure if we'll go to the beach or not. Regardless it will just be nice not to have to go to work!

Have a terrific weekend and stay cool. Literally.

I was going to comment on the tombstone, but Murat HAS t be commented on first: OMFG!

I enlarged the tombstone as much as I could and am pretty sure the top object is a helmet in design similar to the ones worn by British Bobbies (police). It appears to be standing on a sphere on top of the column. I wonder if the deceased was in the British police or some military organization that had that helmet design as part of the uniform.

On the other hand, maybe he was just very heavily endowed and his boyfriend decided to memorialize the fact.
