CLOSER OBSERVATION


When I was in elementary school, over 50 years ago, I had a pet toad. I loved it to pieces. Took it to school for show and tell but it escaped.  Made me very sad. So imagine my delight seeing this little one sitting on a patio chair, five decades or so, later… I almost missed it because it blended right into the background. I thought it was a leaf. Have you ever ALMOST missed seeing something, that under closer observation revealed itself to you?

TRICK OR TREAT & CANDY CORN


I’m getting antsy for autumn to come. These hot days of summer  are getting to me. The humidity especially. So imagine my delight when I saw CANDY CORN sitting in a bin at a store I frequent. It reminded me of  the fall season, up and coming... though still months away.


 I screeched with excitement. And that only intensified  when I saw Halloween stuff out and about... to boot. 
witches hats


brooms

old butlers

jack o lanterns

 Though for most people, I admit,  it’s a tad bit early to see these seasonal items on display...  but NOT for me. The timing was perfect. Gave me the emotional boost I need to get through the rest of this oppresive heat wave... one day at a time!

A chance encounter with a LEGEND

On a short trip to Michigan look who we encountered at a rest area. Made me wish I had worn a pair of blue suede shoes. 


My husband hammed it up with the King.


But I didn’t.
