    1983: Mobile Phones, Fashions,Technology, & #Music #wbw

    Good day, Kittens and Dawgs! Thanks for dropping by this morning, Kittens and Dawgs! It’s mid-week and I know most of y’all are here looking for my “not-so Wordless Wednesday” contribution. It went live earlier HERE at 12am. After you join my linky party be sure to come back to this post! ūüėČ In today’s WBW edition, let’s flashback to the year… I got to thinking about communications on the go this week, since we’re planning to get new iPhones with ours on the unpredictable side due to age. Although, Motorola introduced the first mobile handset in the early 70s. Very few folks had them. In the 80s the handsets…

    1974: Gym Uniforms, Striped Socks, Suede Sneakers, & Bellbottoms #wbw

    Are you looking for my “not-so Wordless Wednesday” post or are you a fellow shutter bug like me, if so then you’ll find it here. ūüėČ Otherwise, welcome to the newest edition of Way Back Wednesdays. Memories shared in this weekly segment are generally random. Sometimes I haven’t a clue where it came from other than out of the blue I’m reminded of something, so I roll with the idea in creating a post built around the content swirling in my head and that’s where I find myself today. Let’s flashback to… This is the year I turned 13. I was in grade 7. I remember owning suede sneakers like…

    Wayback Wednesday Returns!

    Hello again, Kittens & Dawgs! I’m finding my way back to a new bloggy me, so If you’re looking for “not-so Wordless Wednesday“, then here’s where you need to be! Years ago, I hosted Wayback Wednesday with another blogger. She used this spot to feature a song from a particular year and you know how much I love mewsic, so this was great fun. I incorporated other stuff like This Day in History or other fun trivia. This is one of those posts that sorta fell by the way when I got involved more with photography but I like the idea of sharing things from the past (short or long…

    Busy as a bee

    The change in season signals this little guy to make ready for winter. Lately, I’m busy as a bee. Mainly it’s because I’m getting ready to spend time with DH in our annual staycation. That means you won’t see me around Blogosphere but I know you won’t mind and maybe you are wishing you can do the same thing. No, not spend time with my DH but with your significant other.

    Wings of an eagle

    It’s wonderful to have you be a part of my (not-so) Wordless Wednesday post. While running errands last Sunday, we happened upon this eagle statue at an office complex.

Scroll to the top of my Home page for Daily Blog Hops for a list of WW communities. My photo-art inspired this week’s music expressions with this song.   Mommy Time Out and I would like to thank you for joining us for another edition…

    We will never forget

    Thank you for joining me for¬†Wordless Wednesday¬†on the anniversary of 9/11. This memorial is in a Kentucky veterans cemetery near Fort Knox as a remembrance for those who perished 12 years ago. Like all memorials, it’s a symbol so that we will never forget and we shouldn’t. How can we forget? I can not and do not want to forget. Many cannot even forgive, much less forget. Forgiveness is the first thing I did that day. I prayed for these cowardly, wicked people who waged war against innocent people. ¬†However, if you haven’t found the same forgiveness in your heart, then I implore you to learn how to forgive for…

    Indian Boundary Lake

    ¬†Thanks for joining me for Wordless Wednesday.¬† I took today’s photo off Cherohala Skyway at the Indian Boundary Recreation Area. In my opinion, this beautiful lake nestled in the mountains has a striking resemblance of Jordan Pond on Bar Island, Maine in Acadia National Park. Not pictured in the above photo is a foot trail that circles the lake. Below is another gorgeous view from this woodsy access trail. Isn’t this peaceful? Let’s flashback Wayback Wednesday alphabet style continuing with the letter “A“!   Alicia Keys     Angela from Mommy Time Out and I would like to thank you for joining us for another edition of Wayback Wednesdays.¬† To…

    Bald River Falls

      Bald River Falls off Cherohala Skyway Last week’s WW contribution was a view from the ¬†Cherohala Skyway. This week, I am submitting for your pleasure another view that’s off the beaten path so to speak. Bald River Falls is situated about 4.5 off the Cherohala Skyway, but the drive is worth it. This photo is easily captured from your window, but I got out of the car before snapping my camera. Being the somewhat perfectionist that I am, I try to incorporate musical inspiration to go along with my photo selection of the week. This doesn’t always work too well. Thus, I have decided a new routine in picking…

    Black-Eyed Susans

    iPhone capture   ¬† Black-Eyed Susan by: John Gay All in the downs, the fleet was moored, Banners waving in the wind. When Black-Eyed Susan came aboard, and eyed the burly men. ‚ÄúTell me ye sailors, tell me true Does my Sweet William sail with you? Though battle call me from thy arms, Let not my pretty Susan mourn; Though cannons roar, yet safe from harms William shall to his Dear return. Love turns aside the balls that round me fly Lest precious tears should drop from Susan‚Äôs eye. This charming poem tells one of the great ‚ÄúLegends of Love‚ÄĚ in our wildflowers, and every summer even today, it plays…

    The Good Guys

    ¬†We are currently watching the 2010 TV show, The Good Guys, on Netflix. The program was short-lived on FOX lasting only one season. For the life of me, I can’t figure this one out because this is one of the best TV series to air in a looooong time. It is a well-written adventure/action comedy about two Dallas Police Detectives – Dan Stark (Bradley Whitford) and Jack Bailey (Colin Hanks). Stark is an old-school cop who relies on hunches and doesn’t hesitate to throw the rules out the window to solve a crime. Whereas, Bailey, is a stiff collar, by-the-book, in favor of technology to bring the criminal to justice.¬†This…
