Willy-Nilly Friday Five and Feline Friday - April 13, 2018


Once again it's time for WILLY-NILLY FRIDAY FIVE now being hosted by Tom (The Backroads Traveller).

1.  Took Coleen and her friend, Helen to the park the other day.  One of the few days it wasn't raining.  In fact the sun was out and the turtles were taking advantage of that.

2.  I thought we were at our local city park (Pioneer Park) but according to the vehicle parked next to me we may have been at a different park...

3.  As I've mentioned it's rained ALOT here this month. We had a horrible thunder and lightning storm the other night. There was one clap of thunder that sounded like an "explosion" and I told my husband that lightning had to have hit something very close by.  Spotted this the next day & sure enough that is what happened.

Lighting hit this 100+ year old Green Ash tree about a block away from where we live.  It just exploded about 50 feet of the tree into oblivion. 

4.  Spotted this truck down the street and thought of Debbie (It's All About Purple) immediately so I stopped and took a picture to share.

Pretty sharp looking and most certainly Purple!

5.  Finally today we can't leave without sharing a photo of a cat (sorry for none cat lovers)...Speedy G showing a little bit of "fang".
Sharing this with FELINE FRIDAY

In lieu of all the "rain" we've had this month I'm leaving you with this song choice:

Have a great weekend...More rain headed our way.  Oh Goodie!

Friday Fun - April 6, 2018

Welcome!  - It's been a rainy first week of April here in "Wally-World" but it's better than snow so I can't complain.

Tom (The Backroads Traveler) has taken over:
WILLY-NILLY FRIDAY FIVE and I'm joining in on the fun today.

I'll also be joining Comedy Plus for FELINE FRIDAY and

McGuffy's Reader for FRIENDLY-FILL INS - Just click on the links to be taken to the party.

Starting off with Willy-Nilly Friday Five:

1.  Every time I've driven by this sign I've wanted to get a picture of it.  I just happened to have my camera with me one day last week and the light was red so I snapped a quick photo. 

Do you see what's "Funny" about the sign? -  Next time your seafood "sits up" you might want to run.
2.  Took a drive the other day.  Spotted these deer (there were two others out of this shot) resting in some one's yard.

3.  Drove up to Bennington Lake, the water is really low as they haven't filled it yet.  Saw this Heron though and managed to get close enough for a few shots before it flew off.

4.  They finally opened up Rooks Park and I thought this pretty blooming tree looked so "spring like" that I had to take a few pictures.  The bees were enjoying the blooms.

5.  Coleen likes to wear clothes that don't match (it's her quirky style) - This was the PJ ensemble she had on yesterday morning.

Colorful huh?

For Feline Friday a cat I spotted while out on a walk this week during one of the few times it wasn't raining.

I'm being watched very carefully.

Awww Monday and Sparks - March 26, 2018

 I know...once again it's been a few days between posts.  I sincerely hope everyone hasn't given up on me. 
Last week I celebrated my birthday (First Day of Spring) - It was actually sunny here and 60 some degrees that day so I was happy about that.

I had bowling that morning (League) and it was the "Roll-Off" between the winners of the first half & the winners of the second half.  My team won the first half.  I hate being in roll-off's, too much pressure.  Having to do it on your birthday isn't cool at all. 

Things were going pretty decent until a group of middle school kids showed up to bowl.  They were noisy and obnoxious and I lost my sense of concentration.  Then our lane broke down and we had to switch lanes, another thing that really annoys me.  So needless to say I didn't really enjoy the bowling and my team ended up only winning 1 game.  Still 2nd place over all isn't bad.

Anyway today I'm sharing with:


Good words of advice and ones that I am still struggling to follow but getting there.

 Have a great week & enjoy life!

Wild Bird Wednesday - March 14, 2018

Joining, Stewart (Paying Reading Attention) for:

These shots were taken through the openings of a chain link fence at the local city park (Pioneer Park) aviary.

 I love the colors of this duck and the fact I caught the water drip as well.

That red eye is sure "eye-catching." - The female is in front, wish I would have got a shot of her too.  Maybe another time.

Back view of the male as he swam the other direction.

Well it's been a week or so since I've posted.  Lots going on here & not much time for blogging.  I hate not being able to comment on your blogs but sometimes "Life" happens.  I hope you all understand.

Joining in today for AWWW MONDAYS & SPARKS

 Caramel Honeybun enjoying some "bubbles"

I think we all have good inside us, we just need to dig deeper and let it shine.

Have a wonderful week.
