    What's On Your Refrigerator?

    Most of us plaster all types of things on our big refrigerators. Certain personality types probably have specific things to place on the 'fridge. Things like....

    Parents = the kid's drawings
    Green folk = tree magnets, "We Recycle" magnet, Earth Day schedule
    Travelers = state shape magnets
    Etc.

    This Bear's refrigerator has the following items attached.....

    Pizza coupons
    Pittsburgh Steeler 2009 Schedule
    Katie's work schedule
    Elvis magnet
    2010 calendar
    Homemade birthday card for Katie from my youngest grand-daughter
    Various Golden Retriever magnets
    Grocery list
    Misc. "cute little saying" magnets
    _____

    So, what's on your 'fridge? What say you?

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    At my apartment at college:
    Coupons - mostly from the pizza place
    Roommate's old work schedules, which he doesn't even work at anymore
    A Cubs schedule magnet from 2008
    Map magnets (mine)
    Notices from our landlord
    A completed crossword puzzle from a Metra Rail newsletter
    A meeting agenda that one of our friends drew pictures on
    A ribbon magnet from the 2/14 shooting

    And a collection of about 30 Jack Daniel's and Jim Beam bottles meticulously placed on top of the fridge

    I'm going to miss college.

    Ha, everything one might have I guess... magnets, sports schedules, pictures, newpaper clippings, wedding / birthday invites, cards, art, & postcards. We really need to clean it up!

    Refrigerator magnet from all the places I've went on vacation. My frig is covered with them. I've got more on it than in it.
    When did I go from Luke Skywalker to Obi-Wan Kenobi?

    Some business magnets and some vacation magnets, one from my friends on the Panhandle too. Assorted papers, notices, coupons, and Rutgers parking tickets .

    Three simple magnets:

    "Ginger Rogers did everything that Fred Astaire did only backwards & in high heels"

    "Unsafe sex" (with a red bar diagonally through it)

    "Beware pickpockets and loose women" (actual placard at one time)

    Tons of different magnets (birds, other animals, vintage ads, business cards), photos, 2010 calendar, favorite comics, memo pad for the grocery list, bottle opener...

    We have virtually no space left to post anything to the front of the refrigerator without getting rid of something else first.
