It's Pink Ribbon Month

Otherwise known as Breast Cancer Awareness month. I read a really interesting article this past week about Pink Ribbon overkill and was astonished to read that no one owns the Pink Ribbon image! Having worked with licensed products for 9 years this blows my mind. I'm so used to images having ownership that require licensing dues; it's incredulous an image as popular as the Pink Ribbon could have no owner!!! So just keep this in mind as you encounter pink products everywhere, the purchase of such does not guarantee the manufacturer is giving anything to support breast cancer research and cure.

With this in mind, one of us wears pink - but more for reasons of the pants were only $5.00 at Target and we have pink cupcakes to eat - but more because they looked really good!

On with our Saturday adventures in pink:

Today we returned to the Island at Deerfield beach. I'm fascinated with Islands and this one is accessible with a FREE BOAT RIDE!!! My dad was a bargain hunter for free outdoor adventures so I always hear his voice cheer in my head when I do one of these.

First I need to show you this amazingly strong spider thread holding a stick!


Here's our Pink Explorer




And right before leaving we found a line of Iguana's just sittin' on the dock of the bay.


Sorry I just had to fit a song lyric in there. Here's the first 2 verses:
Sittin' in the mornin' sun
I'll be sittin' when the evenin' come
Watching the ships roll in
And then I watch 'em roll away again, yeah

I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
Ooo, I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wastin' time

Hahaha Thanks for the laugh. I find myself putting song lyrics in life so often. Most of the time, to make things bearable. LOL
