Flower Friday and Fill-ins

We rode through Vail, Colorado on the way to Glenwood Springs on June 20.
It was another impromptu side trip.  The motorcoach was too big to park so we weren't able to walk around but we did see some beautiful flowers on the streets and along the highway.

Ellen came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two. Please purr and pray for Annie’s beautiful cat, Chloe Jo , she has been having numerous health problems and was hospitalized for several days.
1. My favorite line from a film(s) is "you should be the leading lady of your own life". Line was said to Kate Winsett in The Holiday, starring Cameron Diaz and Kate Winsett
From Grease, one of the Pink Ladies is wearing some atrocious pink sunglasses with rhinestones and trying to be very sophisticated.  When one of the rhinestones falls in her lunch, she says "double doo doo"! For some reason it cracks me up every time I hear it.

2. Other than blogs, a website I visit often is Google!
3. When I feel down, I count my blessings, for they are plentiful!
4. If I could carry a tune, I would love to sing.

  9. Prayers sent to Chloe Jo. Hope she gets well soon. I like all 4 of those.
    Beautiful flowers. You already know how much I love flowers.

    Happy weekend. Gonna be a scorcher here in Mississippi.

  10. blue flowers have something special... they are a little like royals...and yours in the photo look really like kings :o) the mama often asks silly questions to mr. google and by now he aslways had an answer... and he is never speechless like my dad ;O)

  11. I love those flowers! Furry nice. And google is the best website to find all sorts of fun things on the interwebs, sometimes me and momma get lost in google searching for different things. BOL

    PUppy Growls,

  12. my favorite line from a movie is when Mel Gibson says You want to see Crazy??? we both love it and love that movie. Lethal Weapon is the movie... that is bob's favorite line also... I bet you can't guess my favorite website.... PICMONKEY PICMONEY

  13. Momma can't pick a favorite line -- she's a kerazy movie buff -- but she likes both your picks!

  14. I think part of being the leading lady in your life is singing even if you can't carry a tune. Life is too short to avoid something we like to do just because we're not as skilled as someone else. NUTS! If only to take my own advice :) Though to be honest, Bear looks very pained when I dare to sing.

  15. madi...if de food servizz gurl started ta sing eye wood moove....!!!! yur mom getted sum grate snap shotz oh all thoz flowerz ! we like de boxex...we haz one heer, but itz on de ground....go figure ~~~ ☺☺♥♥

  18. I love singing and normally I am not too awful. Today though, I sounded like a very sick little froggy and I don't mean a French girl either. In fact, I feel very much like Double Doo Doo, since the cold finally set in as well. I guess the crud can make it across the virtual world...

    PS: love the flowers, especially those hanging from the balconies.

  19. Great flower photos.

    My favourite movie line is from Auntie Mame "Life is a Banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death!"

  20. Beautiful pictures!
    Hazel & Mabel

    Hugs, Teddy
