Good Fences #67 - Celebrate

Joining Theresa (The Run-a-round Ranch Report) for Good Fences.

It's summer (at least here in the US) so let's celebrate with a burst of colorful flowers behind a chain link fence.  Spotted on one of our many walks.

and because it's almost the 4th of July here in the US let's celebrate with a
Patriotic Chain Link fence. Also spotted out on a fence hunt.

Have a great day & thanks for stopping in.  Don't forget to join in on the fun and check out all the other great fences.  You can find them by clicking on the link (GOOD FENCES)

Friday Fun - June 26, 2015

Happy Friday! - Hope you all enjoy your visit here today.  So let's get started with the fun. - Click to enlarge photos.

CAPTION THIS:  Last weeks winner is.........

Annie from McGuffy's Reader who came up with this fun caption.  Congrats Annie you will be in the running for the monthly prize.

Here is this weeks photo

You'll have until Thursday 12:01 PM (7/3) to send in your caption.  Leave in the comment section please.  Have fun. - Thanks again to everyone who sent in some really fun captions.


Last week I did 5 photos with a particular theme.  I asked you to guess what it was.  For those who guessed,  (Light) you were correct.  There were a few who thought it was (Texture).  This week it's really "obvious" what my theme is.
1.  We haven't seen much of this this summer.  In fact we probably won't see any of it for several more weeks.  We are having a "heat wave" here right now. (Photo from Archives)

For your listening pleasure here is a song that I heard a lot as a child.

 Waves in Lincoln City - (Photo from Archives)

Check out these movies that deal with today's theme.  How many of them have you seen?

One of the fountains from the new Splash Pad that opened here earlier this month.
Check out these water parks:  I went to one once and went down one of those tube things and vowed...."Never Again." 
Small water fall at Bonneville Dam (Archive Photo) - For more waterfall fun check out this sight for the top 100 Water Falls in the US.
Another shot of the water fountain at Whitman College (Archive Photo)
Check out this video of the Fountains at Longwood Gardens. I had the pleasure of visiting here many years ago and getting "kicked out" of one of the fountains.  You can't wade in them!

Bonus shot:  I've been trying to keep the lawn green this summer so have been running the sprinkler a lot.  I decided to shoot this in BW just for the fun of it.
If you guessed....WATER today you would be correct.  If you guessed anything else you must not be paying attention!
Oh for FELINE ART today I took an old photo of our sweet departed Eric and cartoonized it and added a frame.  I still miss him very much.


Notice it also fits the "water" theme.

I sure wish those of you who've had rain (not floods) but rain would send a little our way.

Can you see those temps? - I think I'll go take a cool bath.

Good Fences#66 - I can see you...sort of.

 Welcome! - It's going to be a HOT one here this week so I'm inside staying cool because who wants to "bake" in the heat. 

Instead let's have some fun by joining Theresa from,
The Run-a-round Ranch Report for GOOD FENCES.

Coleen and I took my mom's dog, Pixie for a short walk one afternoon and as usual I like to take my camera along (just in case) we see something neat.

So we're walking past this house when we hear barking and then we see this....

peeking out from under the fence.  We can still hear barking so we wait and guess what?

Yep, there were two of them and I just couldn't resist snapping a photo of them peeking out from under the fence at us.  Aren't they adorable!

Have a great day & do check out all the other great fence shots by visiting The Run-a-round Ranch Report blog.
