Blue Monday/When and Now


What better way to start you week off than spend some time with Sallie and her Blue Monday friends.  They gather each week at
http:smilingsally.blogspot.com

Recently attended a baby shower for a friend of mine.  So glad there were lots of blues scattered around.  WHEN this little fellow arrives he will be blessed with many useful things.

The NOW is for a birthday party.  This dear lady celebrated her 90th birthday.  Thankful they too like blue.

Got up Sunday morning and thought I would go blind.  The sun was out and shining so bright.  Glory be!  No more storms or rain for a week at least.

Outdoor Wednesday

Outdoors today in Texas is very,very wet and no relief in sight.  We were desperately in need of rain, but we need a break. Perhaps we will find some sunny outdoors at http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com

This is definitely not your typical cowboy.  This is on the entryway of a friends home. She does not even live in Texas where the cowboys are supposed to be.

Outdoor Wednesday

Trust your outdoors is better than in Texas.  We went from one extreme to another. Have been under a severe drought for years and now the rain and storms are destroying things. No doubt Susan and friends will have a much brighter outdoors to share at http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com.

This is neither "Tom", Dick or Harry's cabin.  It is the Fife Cabin (1930) in Zion Park.  The cabin is part of their culture and they do not let you enter. A friend of mine had the pleasure of visiting this area and shared these photos with me.

Security Check/Blue Monday

Trust today is a good Blue Monday for everyone.  Sally would be very pleased if you dropped by and left a comment at http://smilingsally.blogspot.com

As most of you know that follow my blog, I  recently flew to visit my sister in Mississippi for a few days. I always allow myself plenty time as you never know what might cause a delay. Also, depending on the time of day, the security lines can be very long.  No problem getting through security on leaving. I know their rules and abide by them. Certain ages, including myself, do not even have to remove shoes and coat.

On my return flight, things were a little different.  My sister took me to the airport in plenty of time so I would not have to rush. Everything went fine, until I got to this point of security.
I do not like this type security check, but it was the one in use that day. The security person detected a problem and sent me back through.  I had to go back several more times, even tho the security and myself could see nothing suspicious on viewing.  They finally decided it had to be the blouse I had on.  It had little gold like thread running through it.  They concluded the thread must have some metallic in it and let me pass.

After going through all that, my bag was not there.  I knew there had been plenty time for it to come through with me trying to get clearance. The security that had detained me said it had been pulled off by security and advised me where to go.  By this time, I was really freaking out. At my designated spot, finally a security person showed up with my bag. Of course, it was searched thoroughly.  As I have stated, I am aware of what you can carry(such as liquids) and what not.  At no time, did it register with me, I had a forbidden object in m bag.
Security pulled this out and said, "what is this"? I told her jelly that lady had given me. Now jelly is jelled not a liquid. That made no difference, they took it away from me. After that, I was allowed to go on through.  Had no time to waste after that ordeal.
This is the type security booth I prefer to be checked.  However, we do not get our choice.  These security photos are from the internet.  Made sure they were wearing blue.

To finish this story, I did not have the heart to tell the lady they took my jelly away from me. However, my sister loves to talk and she explained what happened to her.

My trip was back in mid April.  To my surprise this past week, I received this package.
Instead of one, this dear lady had sent me three little jars.  What a surprise that was.  I love anything homemade and was thrilled to get it.

How nice it is when bad things turn out for the better.  Three for one.
