This week's challenge selection is carnival by Lew.  Check out my pals for their interpretations on this theme: Fishing Guy, Katney, Imac, Lew, and Christine Anne.

 I did not have an actual carnival, but there was a community event that included a cookout, games and a concert.  This was last Friday, and I hoped to get more pics of the concert, but a friend need help elsewhere, so I had to duck out early.  The header pic is from the concert's opening act.

I sampled these, but Chicago style--no ketchup!

It seems that this couple is ALWAYS helping behind the scenes!!

I apologize for not having been around much lately.  I took some time off of work, and our home computer has issues.  My online time was almost all done at the library.  Most of that time, I was editing wedding photos, and I am happy to have finished that project.  I slept in late most days of my vacation.  That was nice!!  But I also had some things to fix around the house... that was not as nice.  But my parents came up to visit from Florida, and that was sheer delight!

One night in January, my son's friends stormed our home to celebrate with him.  There was not as much sitting space as there were sitters, so they frequently broke out in amusing squabbles about where they wanted to park.  These are a great bunch of kids and I am glad for the friends my children have.


Always eager to squnch for group selfies!


The shoe rack is upright against the wall.  And it is filled.  This is overflow from the party.

This week's challenge selection is pup by me.  Check out my pals for their interpretations on this theme: Fishing Guy, Katney, Imac, Lew, and Christine Anne.

The little guy in the header was abandoned at a gas station.  He should not have been separated from his mother yet.  Since my daughter works as a vet tech, and has contacts with animal shelters, she brought him home, so that we might provide special care until he was able to be adopted.  He thrived on attention, so she called him "Gimme."  At the right time, we brought him back to the shelter and he was quickly adopted.  His owner renamed him "Diesel."

Playing hide & seek?


Mellow mood.
