Blue Monday

Some of the best of blues can be found at
Sorry, I will not have a blue Monday post next week.

Thanks to my neighbor, he shard this photo with me. He goes to this event each year for weeks.  It is not my type of music. What a blessing we all do have the same taste.

Since school is starting next week, thought a chuckle would be a nice way end my post today.

Some first graders were discussing a picture of a family.  One little boy in the picture had a different hair color than the other members.  One of the students suggested that he was adopted. 

A little girl said, "I know all about adoption,  I was adopted."

What does that mean to be adopted?" asked another child. 

"It means, said the girl, "that you grew in your mommy's heart instead of her tummy!"

I like folk music, LV, so I might go to a concert like this if it were held near me. My grandsons already began school this past week. It seems summer is almost over. I hope you enjoy your blog break!

A very blue stage for Blue Monday. I like the school kids story too.

Good morning LV, First your friend is a sweet person to think of your search for blue. A great entry for the blue. Smile.

Did you know you can post for Blue Monday anytime and set the date you want to post it? I do it every week. Usually my post is finished a couple days ahead. Check it out. At least in Typepad that is an option.

The school story is so cute. Thanks for the chuckle this morning.

I hope your visit with your sister is a positive experience. Safe travels my sweet friend.

Hi Sweet Lady---What a sweet Adoption Story... I am going to share it on Facebook.

And that is a great entry for Blue Monday..


Jeanne said...

I'm back, you are right, It will not link. Didn't think of that. Silly me. I will miss you. Be safe and don't overwork helping your sister.

Love the quote! Little children can say and do the most precious things. That's what I miss about not being in a classroom. ;-)
Happy Blue Monday!

Dearest LV.,
How sweet that your neighbor shared that photo with you!
It is good that tastes do vary.
The saying from the little child is very sweet.

Your child's story is wonderful. And yes, I think it's great that we can all enjoy different kinds of music. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

Ginny Hartzler said...

That is a lovely saying. I remember Barbara Walters saying that she told her adopted daughter this. I like folk music! Is this a mandolin?

Joy H said...

Beautiful! I love that. My niece adopted a little boy from Russia.
He is a true joy to everyone!

Help! I would love to join these links for blue monday and am not sure how to do it. Could you help me?

A folk music in Kerrville sounds good to me just because it is in Kerrville and I've never been there. I think it is in the hill country so it sounds like it could be fun. But yes, you are right that it's good we can all have different tastes in music. I can enjoy most every kind except hard rock and rapper. I still prefer the big band sound, or the 50's and 60's music. Good travels.

Awwww... I love that sweet adoption story. It really warms my heart. Hope you have a wonderful week!

LV, Folk music is a favorite of mine too, bet the festival was fun. Love your sweet story and I'm sorry you will have to miss a week at BM. Take care and happy week.

That is a very sweet story LV -- my granddaughter and her husband have two adopted children and are hoping to adopt a third, so it is very special to me. Thank you for sharing; I will tell it to her.

Such a precious share. I missed Blue Monday because we were in Kansas setting up Nick for his final year at KWU. Take care my friend. xo
