That's a good one, too. So often the palace photographer takes a really bad picture, he likes candid shots.

Thanks everyone. Josh is a very good kid, especially after everything he has been through. He lost his father when he was 6 years old. It has been hard.

Open the blinds in the kitchen this morning and there was a Hummingbird sucking the nectar out of each and every tiny Coleus flower. There were a lot and it worked so hard not to miss a one. They are so tiny and make me smile....and I needed something to make me smile after yesterday.

FF, hummers are such fascinating little birds, aren't they? I haven't seen any at my feeder all week, so I guess we're down to watching the birds that over-winter up north. I'm NOT in any hurry to see Juncos, that's for sure!

I'm so happy we had a pretty successful garage sale! Nearly $200 for the two-day sale. Shush, we won't count the shorting/pricing/setting up time, OK?

I have been looking for a copy of the movie "Out On A Limb" with Shirley Maclaine for a very long time. I know they have it on Amazon but I didn't want to spend that much. Well, today was my lucky day. I was at my local used book store and there was a used copy of the movie. I told the guy in charge that I couldn't believe he had a copy and he looked at me and said that will cost you a whole dime. WHAT! He said yep, it was on clearance. I love that used book store, they always have great bargains.

Different perceptions of rain puddles.

Adults tend to avoid them, seeing them as a nuisance....

whereas children will gleefully jump into them for fun!

That's because the children don't do the laundry!

Yes that occurred to me but I resisted saying that.

Often though they have little plastic boots on so...not always the case!

The last time I jumped in a rain puddle I was in my 40s. I was wearing my welly boots. A lot of water ended up in my wellies.

Last week...I jumped in a puddle and I am almost 55. Yes, the inside of my wellies got wet.
