Granddaughters by the Fishimg Place

It's SEPTEMBER!
When two of my four granddaughters go fishing when it's cool, they need more than bait. They also need blankets!
Are you a fishing person? Do you like to actually fish, do you like to watch someone fish, or do you like to stay home?

A REAL THONG!

IT'S BAAAACK!
When I was a kid, thongs were worn on feet, not butts! So when I was in the store last week, I was THRILLED to see that THONGS ARE BACK in their original form!

I feel like a kid again!
So, what do you call these things that provide a sole for your foot to rest upon, held in place by straps over your upper foot and a stem between your toes?

Dead or Alive?

When I first saw the bug on this fan, I had to wonder, "Is this fly dead or alive?"
It's so plump and healthy-looking, but if it were alive, it had staying power, because the fan was blowing (albeit on its lowest setting.)
Yet flies can walk on ceilings, and survive being swatted, so are their feet really so sticky that they can hang on to a slowly blowing fan?
What do you think? Dead or alive?

Have I Been This Good?

Have I been this good of a girl?
 I got to trade in my wondrously roomy Captiva for this short little wear-your-car to work version of a Ford Focus in a Candy Blue color. THE THING IS, my Captiva got 24 mpg combined, while driving this petite thing home on the freeway registered 39.8 mpg average. Not only does it have smaller payments, but best of all, I fit! (So does Bob, but he can't wiggle his toes!) Thank you to whatever came together in the Universe in a shower of sparkles to create the magic of this car parked at the curb in front of my house, waiting for me!

Mystery Lights Photo Reveal!

What were those lights I posted last Wednesday, anyway? Here are some more pictures I took of them!





TA DA! It's the oil refinery by Bountiful, Utah, also called "Air Products" on the web. The difference is that I took pictures out of the car window as we were zooming down the freeway. (Interesting effects, right?) This last picture is not wobbly. (I think the place looks so fascinating at night... kind of like Mordor!) 

 nDo you like to be out at night? Or are you a daytime person?

What are these...lights?


Yep...yep...it's true. I'm doing my Monday blog post on Wednesday. 
(Hey, at least it's not Thursday, People!)
Once upon a time, we Bahlmann's got a magazine with close up pictures of ordinary objects, such as the strings in a stalk of celery, or the front grill on toy car, and the question: "What is this?" 
Now I pose the question to you...here is a picture I took with my very own phone camera. "What is this?"
(I'll let you know next Monday, people... or Thursday. Whichever!)

Sparkler Kids

As I drove by an urban structure, I saw these blue and purple kids herding a field of sparkling pinwheels. The building looked like a h...
