A mind of his own



In case you are wondering what happened to all of your great ideas for workouts, I have been giving serious consideration to each and every one, and I think that might take me at least two more years because there were so many suggestions.

I was also floored by the outpouring of suggestions for how to turn a Bed, Bath & Beyond shopping bag into a Halloween costume. Wow, you guys sure are crafty! I also have a lot of those twisty-tie things that come with garbage bags floating around the kitchen. You think maybe there's something I can do with those?

I had my favorites—Harold & The Purple Crayon, a bunch of grapes, a blueberry, a raisin, a shopping bag and, of course, The Color Purple (I wasn't sure, though, that Max could pass for Oprah Winfrey). But it didn't matter what I wanted. Because Max has purple on the brain, and he had a vision. I ran the suggestions by Max, illustrated by some photos I'd find online. He considered them all (maybe not quite as thoroughly as I have been mulling over the exercise possibilities), and made a split-second decision. I do not want to give it away here, but I'll just say that to those of you who know Max, you will not be so surprised.

  1. Can't wait to see what you and Max come up with!! I'll bet he will look wonderful!!

    And speaking of photos, that is a really wonderful pic of Max that illustrates this blog entry. He's such a handsome and photogenic boy anyway, but that picture is especially compelling. You take a great picture, Ellen!

  6. I can't wait to see what he has decided on! I too love the colour purple. I have to agree that Max is certainly a handsome guy - he is looking so much older lately in pictures!
