Weekly Theme: Signs (unique or funny)
This is a sign I found awhile back at the downtown
mall parking. It did not make any sense to me. Recently,
I went back and found that it had been changed.

When I visited Jamaica I found the following two signs.
First one was in a restaurant and on the second one
notice the interesting food choices. Goat anyone?

Can't wait to see yours!
Busy Hands Keep Scratching at Bay

My skin disease (PRP) is improving slowly, but still
there is unrelenting itching! This week however,
I was busy helping others and therefore, by mind was
occupied with something other than my itching and scratching.

Tuesday, I helped my friend at her church measuring and
cutting out 60 plus table cloths for demonstration tables
for a community Earth Day celebration. Saturday, I will
spend a few hours at the celebration...selling T-shirts.

Wednesday, I was called unexpectantly to take care of my
2 1/2 year old nephew. So of course, he kept me very busy.
Of course, I loved being with him.

Friday, I spent about 4 hours helping another friend unpack
and prepare a room for her mother at a senior care home.

I did not take photos of all these activities, except for my day
with Billy, of course. We had fun!

Thought of the day: I DO know all the answers, but I've been sworn to secrecy.

To call an electrician...

Only two of the six lights in the bathroom operate,
no replacing bulbs did not work!

Several of the overhead ceiling lights only
work partially.

After a paint job, some of the outlets
were never finished off.

This is only the inside...there are also
problems outside. I'm calling the
electrician first thing Monday morning!

thoughts of the day: *What is the speed of dark?
*If electricity comes from electrons...does that mean that
morality comes from morons?
*Light travels faster than sound, which is why some people
bright until you hear them speak.

This week's theme: "13"

Thirteen songs I enjoy hearing Michael Buble' sing.

And lucky me...I have tickets to see him perform soon!

Oh yeah, I also have tickets to see James Taylor in July.

Back patio with new furniture and hanging plants

Gorgeous blossoms abound

Incredible rose aroma drifts in for my pleasure.

Thought of the day: A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.

I could not find the game "Twister" or a Chubby Checker "Twist" album so....

I chose these beehive-shaped sculptures which are made of twisted willow branches!

Theme: Glass

The theme this week is glass...but mine should be glass and trees. The fake tree at the Turtle Bay Museum (here in Redding, CA) is placed on a glass floor to demonstrate how tree roots grow. (Glass panels in the background have sheets of water running down).

The second group of pictures are of a building in Mount Shasta with a glass roof built around a tree. Fascinating to me, but I do not know the story behind it.

Thought of the day: " Beauty is in the eye of the beer holder!"
