Happy Hump Day. Now that’s talent, right? 😉💕
“Now, open wide….”
Across the species chain, Motherhood remains the same.
Caught this one taking her baby on its maiden food voyage in my friend’s backyard ‘sanctuary’.
Stay tuned for more…..
And it started with a crack, not a gunshot. What, you may ask? Well, the race to have a relaxing, productive, fun, peaceful, exciting, safe, drama-free yet noteworthy mini vacation. Easy peasy, right? 😳 And we were off to a great start until Alabama decided to step up and say, “Hey, you know what day it is?”
3 great years and whack! Of course it must be filled soon or it will spread like a taunting grin and shouting, “Friday the 13th is reeeal” If I didn’t know better I’d think Nick Satan (I mean Saban) threw it himself. 🙊
But, we had a great trip otherwise and saw a cool new set of bridges, some great cloud antics, a nice sunset and sunrise. More on our food adventures later but mine was good last night, once we found the right restaurant.
We are excited about visiting with family and friends. Hope your #Free48 has no cracks, holes, breaks, tears or rot.
Ummm those are tuna tatake sliders. Yum!
*Okay Linda did I make the extra points? Do visit Linda’s blog for more great #SoCS posts and to join the fun. Today’s prompt was to use a three letter word. I had a few four letters in mind but tried to be good. 😂
Zippy will be moving soon.
We heard he may be going into a witness protection program. Or maybe a home for destructive, tomato eating rodents. Maybe he’s going to visit relatives in Connecticut.
Something like that……
He will be missed.
my face you’ll see,
for I will still
abide with thee
in shadows long-
yet will I come
if only ye
have need and lonely
call to me-
thus to your side
forever where I long to be.
Hear my voice in
the cicada serenade,
feel my touch in
sunlight on your skin,
see me in the smile of a child-
for shall I be!
Do not weep,
when ’ere you sleep,
for we shall meet
in dreams as sweet
as honeysuckle dew
I’ll not forget you.

Today was such a beautiful day I had the urge to get out and explore, take photos and just get lost in history. At first I thought of a church tour but there are just too many here. The Georgia skyline is literally dotted with steeples. So, I began checking historic churches, which led to historic buildings, then narrowing it down to nearby cities and finally I hit a winner.
This visit was not about patriotism or politics but about my love of cemeteries. There is so much history written on grave stones and in the case today, much more that was left unsaid on the unmarked stones of the soldiers who fell in the battles around the cemetery. So many were never identified and lay in graves there, acknowledged in the only way humanly possible without the modern science techniques we use today.
Another thing that I love to see when I visit a cemetery is the birds that live there, so often lighting on the head stones and posing there or squawking until I take a photo. Many indigenous peoples have beliefs that include birds being messengers from the Spirit world. I like to feel this is true. If it is, then there were a lot of messages coming at me today. Here are the best of the images I got while we walked around.
If you hold your finger on the bottom of the photo you may find a caption!
It was getting late, so we headed over to the second stop on our excursion. This one should catch your eye, Dan. I think it was your kind of place. 😉
I have more photos but not enough time to edit and put them in this post. I also feel this might be one of the best put together museums that I have ever visited. It truly warrants its own post when I have the chance. Meanwhile, here are a few of the highlights. If you are ever in Kennesaw, and if you love trains or history, be sure to stop by.
Then we were hungry so headed in search of food. We found a new little place called The Nest and grabbed some cold beer and Barbecue. I had mine in tacos. I hope your Free48 was beautiful. Got a busy week ahead so you may not hear from me for a bit. Have a great week and stay cool, in all ways. 😎
