To start off, here are a couple “funnies” to give you a chuckle before we get into my Daily Photos:

Oh, No!!! Not Aunt Clara!!! Call Dr. Bombay……right away!!! That’ll fix things!!! 🙂

As much as I hate wearing masks, I do pride myself with having a nice mask collection to match just about anything in my wardrobe and to be appropriate for just about anywhere I need to go!!! 🙂

July Daily Photos – Chapter Three

I want to start off this post with yesterday’s “You’ve Got To Be Kidding Me” moment! I was sitting at my desk in my den, which looks out at my front lawn and has a perfect view of the Bird Buffet. I enjoy watching the birds….and, yes, even the squirrels…..enjoying the treats I put out for them. Well, yesterday, I looked out and couldn’t believe my eyes! The squirrels like to climb the shepherds hook and hang off the roof of the bird feeder “house” to eat the sunflower seeds – it’s comical to see their acrobatics as they fearlessly hang upside down for their treat. Then, there was yesterday…….one quite clever little bugger figured out how to get the top off the roof of the “house” so he can just sit there and stick his head inside to feast without any death-defying stunts! I could not believe what I was seeing! Now I have seen it all! Mind you, this is not as easy a task as it sounds — the lid can’t just be easily knocked off. When filling the feeder, I have to get my finger nails under the edge and rock it back and forth to get it to come loose – it fits that snugly! I put the lid back on later in the day…….and, then……this morning, he’s back and has removed it, again…..the smart little rascal remembered his accomplishment and did it again! But…..he has a buddy that isn’t as smart……his buddy climbed the shepherds hook and fought the smart one to earn the spot on the roof……but, instead of sticking his head inside the hole in the roof and reaping the benefits of his smart friend to do it the easy way, he did the balancing act to hang over the side to get his seeds from the tray……not too smart, huh???  LOL

So, now……on with my Daily Photos:

July Daily Photos – Chapter One

Happy Fourth of July…….

…….and welcome to the second half of the year! Our state, region, and even our county specifically seem to be recovering from the pandemic…..our numbers state wide are the lowest in the country and our county is seeing more and more days with zero new cases……we’re still seeing some, so it isn’t over, yet, but so much more hopeful than even just a couple of weeks ago. Keeping vigilant with masks and social distancing with hopes that the world gets back to some version of normal soon!

The first seven Daily Photos were fun topics……here they are:

HAPPINESS

Daisies in the garden…….Daisies really are the happiest flower…….

FAVE COLOR

My favorite mask has all my favorite colors in it!

MIRROR

STARS

GARDEN

I think I just might get some tomatoes, this year…….looking good!!!

So…..here we are at the end of the first half of a year that has been so crazy…..it has brought new meaning to the question: “WHAT NOW???”! I’ll start this post off with three memes I found on Facebook that sums it all up……
