So today I am joining Tom (The backroads Traveller) for:
WILLY NILLY FRIDAY FIVE
1. PURPLE RAIN
Earlier this year after a rain our driveway was loaded with the purple blossoms from my mom's Lilac Tree. It looked as if the sky had dropped, purple rain down from heaven.
Sharing the song, Purple Rain as well.
2. YAKETY YAK
Took this photo of some pelicans earlier this summer. Thought the one with it's beak open was comical.
3. POMP AND CIRCUMSTANCE
Like so many graduates this year our daughter did not have a regular graduation ceremony. Instead it was done virtually. She still wanted to wear her cap and gown and we had a little ceremony at home while we watched her graduation on the television screen.
She graduated with a degree in Cosmetology from the local Community College. We are proud of her for seeing this through.
One thing around here this year that's been (not so good) are ants, ants & more ants. - A neat little way to get rid of them, Borax, Powdered Sugar & Maple Syrup with a little water. Mix it up well and put it inside pop bottles, cans, anything that a pet wouldn't get into.(When ants eat the borax bait, it interferes with their digestive system and eventually kills them. ... That's because, for effective ant control, you need to eliminate the queen and the rest of the colony. Worker ants will consume the borax bait and bring it back to the colony for the other ants to eat. ) Here's the can I had on my office floor yesterday. Within minutes there were loads of those nasty little critters. Today only a few are feeding.
Looked up songs about ants, Found this one by Dave Mathews Band (never heard it before) It doesn't really have much to do with ants but hey, it fits my idea so who cares.
5. CHERRY RED - Around here summer is filled with loads of fresh local fruit, Cherries being one of them. I've been enjoying these lucious Bing Cherries all week.
Again the song has nothing to do with cherries but I needed one to keep the theme going. So here it is:
Hope you have enjoyed the photos and the music. Have a great weekend.
