MONDAY MORNING SCREENSAVER

Woke up this morning in my usual Monday Morning Grump manner and turned on the Mac to check my calendar for today.MondayMorningScreensaver

The screensaver helps, but the grump lingers on.

DAILY POST WORDPRESS WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE – AFLOAT

How do you interpret the word afloat? It could be the expression on your son’s face as he jumps on the bed. Maybe it’s your daughter’s triumphant smile after tossing training wheels to master her two-wheeler. It could be a beautiful cloud formation, pollen on the breeze, or an errant birthday party balloon making its escape into the sky. (For more Information, go here!)

Well, it only took me three days to decide on a photo to use for this week’s Photo Challenge … AFLOAT. And in the end, I decided to not decide and go with my top two choices. Really, did you think I was going to go with the dead leaves floating in a rain puddle? (And we’ve had more than our share of rain in the past week … and hail … and tornados!)

First, THE BUILDING AFLOAT …AFLOAT2

And second, THE BALLERINA FLOWER that seems to be floating above the greens of the plant. Shades of Fantasia!Afloat

WORDLESS WEDNESDAY … SWEET VIOLETS!

DO YOU LOVE LUCY ENOUGH …?

To walk past this supposed 400-pound life-sized sculpture of Lucille Ball that stands in her home town of Celoron, NY. without being terrified and running away from what appears to be a zombie or alien invader? Well, after standing in the town for over five years the town residents are up in arms  to have the grotesque work taken to the town dump. Even the sculptor of the work has admitted that it isn’t really his finest effort and has offered a free face lift. So, what’s your opinion. Personally, I feel it is almost as bad as Lucy’s performance in the 1973 movie version of the musical Mame that bombed at the box office.

HAPPY EASTER and PASSOVER!

When was the last time you saw one of these? Do you realize that an entire generation has grown up not knowing what a silver dollar is?

Mlle. Renee’s New Toy Box

ToyBox

Due to the overflow of old toys she refuses to throw away, I had to build my faithful companion a new toy box. Now if I can only get her to pick up all the toys see scatters on the floor looking for the one she wants to play with.Sleeping In

Oh, by the way, due to the chill this morning she decided to sleep-in.

Welcome Signs Of Spring

Woke up this morning to discover this welcome sign of spring had sprung up in my back yard.Grape Hyacthis

THE GRAPE HYACINTHS RETURNED!

That was the good news … the bad news was I discovered these noxious weeds were popping up through the still dormant zoysia turf.

Unwelcome SOS

Time to start blasting those weeds all over again! Oh, the robins are back, only their red breasts are a bit blue due to last night’s extreme return to winter temperatures.
