What's Outside My Windows.... (Part 2)

I have begun to notice that when people come over to my house and are standing in the kitchen, they tend to look out my windows. That is good since I might have a few dirty dishes in the sink that I didn't want them to notice. You might even find some chocolate finger prints on the refrigerator. But these things are alright. As long as my visitors are looking outside, they will not see the things that I haven't gotten to that day.

Yesterday, I was wondering what goodies might show up next outside my windows and I didn't have to wonder very long. I actually figured that my next posting of "What's Outside My Windows", would consist of a monster, Barney the dinosaur, or even a giant evil clown. I was even prepared to show you all Melvin (you'll see Melvin one day when nothing else strange shows up). But no, as fate would have it, The Titanic was the next thing I saw outside my window. In case you have no clue as to what the Titanic was or in my case, is, I'll let you know a few facts about it.

That's what home school moms do, they spit out random facts that pertain to everyday life. (In my case, everyday life just happened to consist of the Titanic outside the window).

According to Wikipedia, the Titanic sank on April 15, 1912. Over 1,500 people perished as a result of the Titanic colliding with an iceberg 400 miles south of the New Foundland Grand Banks. Throughout history, people have marvelled over this accident and numerous books and movies have highlighted or featured the sinking of this huge luxury liner.

All of that marvelling is probably what caused a two or three story version of the Titanic to show up outside my windows. Go figure.... Somebody, somewhere, thought it was a good idea. It was, wasn't it? Not many people see something like this outside their windows. To think, I was worried that something interesting wouldn't show up outside my windows this week. Boy, was I wrong!

I might be one of the very few people that have not seen the most recent movie about the sinking of this massive ship, but, that is alright as I got to see a replica of the ship itself outside my windows! That's better I think. No one will die when this Titanic sinks. That is good.

Why, the entire family has gotten in on this fun. Hubby grabbed the camera the other day and snapped what will be part 3 of "What's outside my windows". The kids are good about allerting us as to when and where something strange shows up. As a matter of fact, something quite unusual has showed up outside my windows just today! Stay tuned to see what part 3 of "What's outside my windows" has in store......You might just learn something along the way too!
