Company's here — Six Word Saturday —

my Six Words:
Telling friends, "I'm coming to America."

Our London (U.K.) kids, granddaughter (above, KP), daughter (Karen), and SIL (Billy) came today and are visiting us for a bit.  It seemed like a long time since we had seen each other but we were just over there this April and May.

Now we have to make up for lost time.  Both KP and Karen had birthdays in July just before they came.  KP is now a BIG THREE years old.

This picture was taken by Karen with her iPhone on the plane before take-off.  She e-mailed it to us just before shutting the phone off.

It's Thursday!!! -- Things in a Row --

Here is my Thursday's Things in a Row entry. It is one picture but two rows. Can you figure it out, where the two rows are (hint: one is easy)? 
No cheating now. The answer is under the picture.

First Row:  The row of privies, of course.  Did you notice that the one on the left is different?  It is for handicap and is wheel chair accessible.  I don't know if they are all painted gray.
Second Row:  Did you guess it?  Of course!  It is the haphazard line of people waiting for their turn to go.  Go where?  Into the privy.  Not everyone in the picture is in the queue, some are waiting to walk back with one or more of those presently inside when I took the picture.
The privies are placed for the July 4th Parade entrants while we waited for two hours.  That is how much early we had to go in order to get lined up, the horses fed again, and gas for the vehicles, and us all to go the potty in these four little shelters.  Some may have cheated and gone two times!!

Indigo — MidWeek Blues / My Alphabe-Thursday -- "I" -- Two Questions -- MidWeek Blues


"I" is for "Indigo" -- Indigo, Google link
I found these little wild flowers while I was looking for my lost ball over in the sideline weeds.  I don't know what kind of plant this was growing out there in the brush.
There was a brighter side to golf than loosing balls, like this pretty green you see below that sits across the pond.  I have also lost quite a few golf balls in this pond as you might imagine.
You can check out more Alphabe-Thursday 'I' assignments with Miss Jenny at the head of the class. You can find her here. You might even like to join us as we go through the alphabet, one letter per week.

And now for my Thursday Two Questions: (See Thursday Two Questions by Self Sagacity for more reading. You could also make your own by checking in at this link.)
Last week 's post was about Hush Puppies, either shoes or the fried kind to eat with fried fish. The responses were very interesting.
My Two Questions for this week (you can answer just one if you wish):

1. What is you favorite wild flowers?  Tell us a bit about your experience with them.

Texas has a lot of wild flowers.  The most common are blue bonnets, Indian paint brush, golden rod, and assorted yellow flowers.

2. What do you have that is indigo blue?
We also have quite a bit of indigo blue pottery, glass vases, and food dishes.

Bonus Question: What is your favorite outside activity? 
You probably guessed that mine is playing golf.  Next would be going for long walks.  Before I developed all these knee problems I would run.  I liked running much better than golfing.   And before I sold my motorcycle I like riding that bike a whole lot, even better than the running (faster speeds for one thing so I could cover more ground/territory).
