For 2018

Wordless Wednesday

Wordless Wednesday

Here are the words if you are interested (it does have one swear word in it - sorry), but it's funny.

Would you ride this? You know I probably would and break every bone in my body!

Happy birthday to Dylan and Cole Sprouse.

Dylan Thomas Sprouse and Cole Mitchell Sprouse (born August 4, 1992) are American actors. They are twins and are collectively referred to as Dylan and Cole Sprouse or the Sprouse Bros. Their first prominent major theatrical film role was in Big Daddy, where they starred alongside Adam Sandler. They later appeared in several television sitcoms and starred in the straight-to-DVD family films, I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus and Just for Kicks.

In 2005, they became international household names by starring in the Disney Channel sitcom The Suite Life of Zack & Cody. As a result of series' success, they have become "heartthrobs" and "overwhelming draws" among preteen and teen audiences. In 2006, the brothers launched a franchise known as the "Sprouse Bros" brand, which included a clothing line, book series and magazine. The majority of the Sprouse's franchise ended in 2008, except for their clothing line.

In late 2008, they starred in a Suite Life spin-off, The Suite Life on Deck which went on to become the most-watched tween/children's television show in 2008 and 2009. The Sprouse twins began cultivating an adult image by starring in the suspense independent theatrical film, the Kings of Appletown (2009) and had an endorsement deal with Dannon Danimals.

In April 2009, they appeared on the cover of People, in a sixty-page special edition issue devoted to the Suite Life on Deck. Notably, Forbes named them one of the top teenage entrepreneurs while MSN reported that they are now multi-millionaires. They have stated they will attend New York University in the fall of 2010 and finish portraying Zack and Cody Martin in The Suite Life on Deck after the show's third season. They also stated they intend focusing on acting during their college years.

It is also Obama's birthday and Queen Elizabeth's birthday. My GS likes the Sprouse's (?) and I do too.


I am Harriet said...

That looks really interesting!

Have a great Wednesday!

Melanie said...

Yes, Sandie, I have no trouble picturing you on that big skateboard!! :)

Katie loves Suite Life, so I've watched them grow up for years now!

HOOTIN' ANNI said...

You on the skateboard? You GO Girl!!!!

Never heard of the twins...LOL. Goes to show you I most definitely live under a rock.

Stop by and visit me if you can find some time.

Jane said...

I hope that your Wed is going well, gal!


Cheri said...

In a word, "no" I would rather be the one taking the picture, but for some reason, Sandie, I could see you doing that.

Pam said...

Sandie, you're first and then maybe I'll follow! ;) Don't know the twins but I will be checking them out.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

You and Me on a Giant Skate Board? Hmmm
hope you are having a wonderful Wed!

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Good Morning Sweetie...
Nope not gonna skateboard. My days of the youth things as such, long gone. I know I would break every bone in my body, and the ones I have left, I am keeping.

Oh look at the birthdays today. What a combination.

Thank you for sharing sweetie. You know how I love it when you do.

Have a beautiful Wednesday.

Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Oh my.... I think my thrill seeker gene is missing... that was soooo scary! Since I broke my leg just walking I don't think I'd be willing to hop on that thing any time soon. Loved seeing it though and will show it to Brett. He'll be impressed.

Wow, school tomorrow? YIKES! Do the kids there get a lot of days off during the year? Brett won't go back until after Labor Day. It's an exciting day, isn't it? I can still remember the nerves and the smell of the classroom. He's off for another great year...I hope he has a fabulous teacher again this year and everything goes well. Is he excited?


Together We Save said...

Ummm.. no I would not ride that, I am a big chicken! LOL

Doris Sturm said...

I'm right here, my friend :-)

I watched that giant skateboard...aren't these guys just nuts? Now I know what a mouse or a bug must feel like when it sees a skateboard coming down the road at them, right?

Doris and the Gizz!

Maria@BubblegumandDuctTape said...

wow! that was a big skateboard, I would have jumped off too, haha!!!!

Live Out Loud said...

Wow, that's one honking skateboard!

It is an intereting mix of birthdays! Now I (maybe) know why Obama is visiting today. Between that and the 'Transfomers 3' explosions and helicoptors and road closures downtown, it'll be a wonder if I can get home unscathed!

I've seen the twins. I always wanted to act with my sister and we did plays together way, way back. It's good to see other sibs are having fun working and playing together!

My Wordless Wednesday is at my Live Out Loud blog - it's Outlaw!

Donna B said...

Love the quote by Sousa, YOU ARE CRAZY to ride that giant skateboard...but it does look like fun. My sister rode a regular one when she was nine months pregnant!!

How did they build that thing?

ClassyChassy said...

Wow - that thing is amazing, Sandie!

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

Oh, my gosh! That thing is huge! LOL! It does look fun though!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Huh -- that is really crazy! I wonder how they built it?

I saw on your sideboard that your birthdays are ending cause it's been a year! It seems like I've been visiting you forever -- but I guess it is less than a year ;>))))
That's a lot of work that you've done on that feature

Joyce said...

Looks like it would be a fun ride until it crashes:-) I wonder what Obama will be wishing for today as he blows out his candles? Probably for his ratings to go up:-)

Katie said...

Yeah, I like the Suit Life On Deck and The Suite Life Of Zack And Cody. I didn't know it was their birthday today.

Dogmom Diva said...

Hi Sandie, no will have to pass on the skateboarding..I have enough trouble just walking ,lol


JeanMac said...

No riding for me, either!

ocmist said...

No skateboards for me! I loved and rode horses for years and a lot of people thought that was dangerous, but that didn't scare me, like motorcycles, or skateboards would. I didn't know who you were talking about until you mentioned the Suite Life. I do like those little rascals!
