Hello Bloggin' Friends
Here's wishin' Ya'll a Happy Fourth of July!

"You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4,
NOT with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle,
 but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness.
You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism."
~Erma Bombeck~

My Patriotism will be showing way past The Fourth.
 Try these UnBelieveable Sweet All-American Desserts.

Be sure to ShooTheFlies!


Just A Closer Look...

...At The Picket Fence Flowers

I will be the gladdest thing
Under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one.
~Edna St. Vincent Millay
Flowers... are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world. 
Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1844

'Tis my faith that every flower
Enjoys the air it breathes!
~William Wordsworth
I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers. 
Claude Monet

I perhaps owe having become a photographer to flowers.

Desperately Seeking Pink

Hey Beverly!!!!! I Got Your Message!!!! 
Howdy PINKIES!!!! I have MISSED Ya'll!!!!!

You know you are DESPERATE for Something Pink to Show for Pink Saturday
when you are taking photos of your BackPack and Phone! 
But Hey Ya'll....it's where I am,
and Ya'll know this Texas Gal's gotta have something PINK 
at all times....wherever I roam....whenever I can....whatever forever PINK!!!
So, are Ya'll wondering Wherever In The World Am I?
Sometimes I wonder that too!!!
Seriously, I'm in HotterNJalepenos West Texas!!!
Where the Sand is Scorching!
Where my Pink FlipFlops melt into the Asphalt!!!
Where Texans say there are Four Seasons...
Almost Summer
Still Summer
And Christmas!!!!
Where you know that the true value of a parking space is not determined by the distance to the door,
but by the availability of shade.
Where sometimes you have  to switch from 'A/C' to 'Heat' in the same day.
Where you describe the first cool snap (below 70 degrees) as "good chili weather."

And, where there are the most Beautiful Pink Sunrises to remind you that Texas is a place....
Where you can measure distance in minutes.
Where some folks plan their weddings, birthings and major events around Football Schedules.
Where you aren't surprised to find movie rentals, ammunition and bait all in the same store.
Where stores don't have bags, they have sacks.
Yep, this is Where I Am for Pink Saturday, June 11, 2011.

As Always...Thanks Beverly
Making Saturdays Pink!!!!


Face the Sunshine...It's What Sunflowers do.

When I returned home from Nurturing My Special Family Birdies...
I found that Lovey, Dovey and Birdie Friends had generously shared their
Sunflower Seeds with Mother Earth.

The Birds Seed Scattering, Mother Earth and Our Father's Rain and Shine have Blessed Us!

Here it is Summer Time and I'm checking in to Wish All of You
a Happy Beginning to Summer!

"Keep your face to the Sunshine
and you cannot see the Shadow.
It's what Sunflowers Do."
Helen Keller
