Got a good reason For taking the easy way out


Flowers and Peanuts

If y'all know of Jeff Dunham [the ventriloquist], then you know one of his puppets is Peanut. All the past season and part of this recent season of NCIS New Orleans, there is a character played by Derek Webster, the FBI director. I pondered and pondered over him for months, thinking he looks like some celebrity I know! It finally dawned on me...if he had the green tuft of hair atop his head, he's the spittin' image of Peanut!! You decide...


Peanut.......................................Webster

It's Valentine's Day!
A bouquet of yellow roses in my ruby cut glass vase -I collect ruby glass. My first piece, a covered candy dish, Bud bought me on our honeymoon....50 years ago in May. I'll try and get a photo of it to share on our 50th anniversary if I remember. In the meantime, enjoy the yellow roses. [Yellow Roses mean: Giving yellow roses can tell someone the joy they bring you and the friendship you share.]




...and speaking of yellow. Once again, I wake up to a foggy morning. (55 days of it with maybe 10 hours of sunshine...all the rest--gray!) I so want the sun to come out. And, not tomorrow! It's been weeks. Gloomy days and skies...it's depressing!! So, I need to see some warm smiley sunflowers....how 'bout you?

  2. Cheerful sunflowers is just what we need here today!
    Foggy this morning with drizzly rain.
    My seniors group plays bingo today - winning will certainly improve my day. Though actually I enjoy getting together with the group whether I win or not.
    Happy Valentines Day!

  11. Everything pretty here as usual. It certainly has been a strange winter for south Texas. I didn't enjoy driving to San Antonio yesterday in that fog and mist at Eight o'clock.

    1. Fog is pretty...but, if you have to drive in it, not so much.
