Three S's: Saturday, Silly, Symmetry


I'm calling this photo the Shelley Trail Pipeline.  
I took it from two sections on the trail standing where the red arrow is looking at it from
different angles.

Nature and Feline Friday and Reminder FFF

 Hosted by LLB Gang

Below photos were taken on a recent walk around the neighborhood.

Wisteria is a long-lived vining plant with cascades of blue to purple flowers that look spectacular hanging from a pergola or archway in spring and early summer. However, this vine is a fast and aggressive grower—often reaching 30+ feet long—and is known to grow quite heavy.

I knew it was considered an aggressive grower but I had no idea it was poisonous to pets, especially the seeds.  So very delicate and pretty...yet evil.


I thank our hostess Comedy Plus

I had an email, video and photo from Rocky and Kat

Dearest Auntie HiC
We’re in Colorful Colorado!
It’s chilly here, and Dad loves it, so we’ll be staying a while.😹

I’ve found a new favorite spot for napping. You know the old saying: If it fits, it sits! 😹

Here is a video of brotherly love.
Kat is taking daily doses of Laxatone for hair balls. I always help clean the gooey mess off his face. I think he enjoys it. 😻

I hope you can see this video from my nephews and their staff.
They are in Colorado now.  This was Sunset over the Rockies on their first night

Lovingly your Nephew 
Rocky in the Rockies

OhhhhhhhhRocky I did so very much love your email, photo and video.  OMCS  Rocky it is chilly.  I am Glad my nephews packed your furry coats.
Uncle and I  did think you look rather regal today there in your basket.
Lovingly your auntie

Thoroughly poetic Thursday #15

  Today we join Two  SPOILED CATS  

Angel Sammy and Teddy for their poetic pictorial poem.

Here is our inspiration

I'm 'just' old enough to remember 
concession peeps. 
Mostly I remember them during baseball games.
Up and down the stadium steps.
Hollering, ' Get your Popcorn, hot dogs, 
roasted peanuts, candy, cold drinks in cups.'
How did they do that? 
 There must have been a wee man stowed 
in the tray
Busy cooking up everything under the rainbow.

Happy Tuesday from the the Road with Pup

Dearest Auntie HiC
We are enjoying our time in New Mexico. 
We’re in the same campground as February 2020, when there was snow!

The weather is beautiful, although windy (50 mph gusts).

Auntie look at Mom in the top right photo 
A wind gust almost blew us over! Ha! 
Notice Mom’s tshirt...she misses her Jacuzzi! 😹

We’re all a bit road weary, so we’re staying here a few more days. 

Mom and me having fun! ❤️ 

Sending Puppy lovin' from the Road from your K9 Nephew Pup

OMDs Pup what a difference you have in 2021 weather.  Wow.  I love the snowy scene a lot...However, you and mom having fun is my favorite!   You know I am all about FUN too. Pup I know how very much you mom loves her soak in the Jacuzzi BUTT I think she is enjoying her time with you at least 2 times more.
Lovingly your auntie HiC

Awww Monday and Sparks

 Dog Tails on Trails

What does not belong in the picture below?
There is a hint in today's Sparks Message

Our Red Bud Tree is blooming and so is the trunk.  This is the first time we remember
the trunk blooming 

Awww and Sparks Monday

My roving photo journalist, Janice, has some of her own roving photo journalists, her niece sent this photo to Janice's sister who sent it to Janice.  She said a meteorologist friend took it in Wake Forest yesterday.  She said it wasn’t edited - the sun was peaking through a hole in the clouds!  Looks like lips 😂.  Amazing!!!!  There was no photo enhancement used...straight out of the camera.

McGuffy’s who was hosting the Sparks is on hiatus. We continue to share positive vibes via our SPARKS

She says “I truly do believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. There is hope. Together, we can light up the entire world!

Photo taken at Logan's Trading Post, the are cloth/fabric wall hangings

Seaboard Cafe birds of feather Selfies

On a recent lunch outing at Seaboard cafe we had some fine feathered friends flitting about with the latest tweets.  The concrete floor in Seaboard is painted with a very pretty design.
