In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Flangiprop!.” Invent a definition for the word “flangiprop,” then use the word in a post.

Now here is a prop after my own heart!  What fun.

A flangiProp is of course a lipped support for a Mac computer that lifts the back of the computer to make it more ergonomic!

      Thanks, jami. I wonder if Apple will steal it? Not Apple-bashing, by the way–I’ve had 8 in the past 30 years. Love ’em, especially since the new Air is light enough to carry in my purse.

    I just spent an hour lost in your blog…anything to do with Mexican art captures my undivided attention. The flowers alone make me homesick…that’s not my home but it might have been. 🙂

      You’ll want to check out my posts on Maestros del Arte Feria, Gradmama! I think I put some links to videos of the Feria. If not, I will. The art here is fabulous and much of the good stuff doesn’t seem to make it to the states, or didn’t in the past, anyway. Nice to meet you and thanks for visiting and liking my site. Never too late to come to Mexico!!!

        I will check in again soon…have been to Mexico numerous times, but now I am not able to travel; its not so much that I’m old, mostly because I’m broke! I think I’ll post about my Mexican experience…please stay tuned. 🙂
