Sunday Scribblings #160 -- Follow!

I had a little fun with this week's Sunday Scribblings promt: FOLLOW.

To my Blogger friends:

There are so many great blogs to FOLLOW;
Without them my life would be HOLLOW.

Your friendship indeed I do HALLOW,
And in your companionship WALLOW.

I sit in the shade of a WILLOW,
Resting my head on a PILLOW.

The joy within starts to BILLOW
Forming words which my heart would BELLOW,

"Mr. Blogspot, you're such a dear FELLOW.
You've brought me so many good friends to FOLLOW!"

True Colours Thursday-Rust!

RUST was a difficult color for me....

Until I remembered the RUST colored rocks we had seen in Sedona, Arizona.

More rocks from the Arizona trip Sunshine & I took last October.

Still more awesome Arizona rocks.

Another RUST rock. This picture taken from the parking lot of my workplace.

True Colours Thursday is hosted by my friend Blue. Be sure & visit her blog to see RUST pictures others have posted.

True Colours Thursday-Lime!

Late again...can't believe how quickly the weeks pass!

I love spring, when everything comes alive after a long winter.

This is my One Year Bible, a gift from my husband. I try to read it every day.

We love Monty Python. This is from Sunshine's collection.

Sunday Scribblings #158...Scary!

I’ve never considered myself a very brave person. I have many fears--some common, some unusual. I am frightened of birds, mice, grasshoppers and feathers. I’m also afraid of needles, blood, closed-in places and darkness.

A couple of weeks ago, I was sitting at the computer creating a Mafia Wars character for myself. Several Facebook friends had invited me to play the game, and I finally gave in. Normally a quiet, peace-loving person, I suddenly felt empowered at the thought of being a mobster.

I was ready to become a completely different person. I wanted to be a big, brawny man, and needed a name to fit my character. Let’s see…maybe I would be Guido. I would be mean, tough, feared by all, intimidated by none. I was flexing my Mafia muscles and feeling fearless when all of a sudden, I heard a blood curdling scream!

I was scared!

Then I realized the scream had come from me—not me the mobster, but me the little girl who was terrified of darkness.

The lights had gone out!

Immediately, the macho mobster melted away as I whimpered, “Help. Sunshine, give me my flashlight. Help me, please.”

Soon the lights came back on, and my heartbeat returned to normal. As quickly as he had disappeared, Guido materialized--this time wearing a sheepish grin.

True Colours Thursday - Black & White!

Hello everyone. I am a little late, but here are my black & white pics.

This is a lighthouse we visited in Port Isabel, Texas. Sunshine actually took this picture, but was kind enough to let me use it.
