Thankfully.. Thankfully.. Thankfully.. FRIDAY!!!

"Trees are poems that earth writes upon the sky,
We fell them down and turn them into paper,
That we may record our emptiness." ~ Kahlil Gibran

"All I'm writing is just what I feel, that's all. I just keep it almost naked. And probably the words are so bland." ~ Jimi Hendrix

"I have never started a poem yet whose end I knew. Writing a poem is discovering."
~ Robert Frost

Friday My Town Shoot Out!! Celebration!!

... For some of us.. Anything at all can start a celebration!.. From a small town festival with children dancing in the streets to family birthday parties..

... Oh sweet sixteen... and would you look at that zebra striped cake?.. Looks good doesn't it?.. Let me tell you there is something to be said for just a plain old time cake.. with some sweet.. one color Icing.. Pink for little girls and mostly white for birthdays.. candy flowers stuck around if you're lucky.. or maybe when you get old as dirt like me.. you can have a black all over and under cake.. They said it was black Velvet.. next time I want a bottle of tequila instead.. 50 years old.. that's reason to celebrate? I guess it is..

don't even ask.. I'll just say YES!.. that is me... I am fifty!!
... From the most special of days ....

.. with perfect memories ...

and silly moments... To just plain old days.. ... filled with family
...or fun ... where anything could happen.. From the most important to the simplest of things....

We should never be afraid to Celebrate Life !! ....

I hope that this week-end you will find something to Celebrate.. maybe it's the frog that finally quits croaking outside of your window.. or the rain that finally falls.. Big or small .. Let's find a reason to Celebrate!!
Have a great week-end!


... a beautiful Afternoon sky..

I'm hoping that the frogs start croaking and it is cool enough to turn the air off and open my windows to hear them. :)

Happy weekend, pally!
