In a car would you rather drive or be a passenger?

Let's go to G's!

A passenger, of course! My feet don’t reach the pedals!! Mom prefers to be a passenger, too. But she always drives!!!

If you were handed free opera tickets, would you go or sell them? Why?

There is nothing like a game of Clue and hot coffee!

I would sell them! Mom and I listen to classic Rock and Roll. But, more likely I would give them to my G – she loves opera. I prefer rock and roll and board games!!

Describe your own outlook on life in seven words or less. (NOTE:  does not necessarily have to be a sentence.)

Which would you prefer:  a wild, turbulent life filled with joy, sorrow, passion, and adventure–intoxicating successes and stunning setbacks; or a contented bordering on happy, secure, predictable life surrounded by friends and family without such wide swings of fortune and mood?

I want some chicken!

Mom and I much prefer a contented, happy and yes, predictable life!

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I am grateful for my internet-shy grandmama!!

I hate hot weather almost as much as I hate cold weather!

You would think that being from Georgia I would be used to hot weather. Well, I mat be used to it but I sure don’t like it! Hot weather means me and mom don’t get to visit with Bella that much because its too hot to sit outside. Hot weather means fleas. Hot weather means I stuck at home when mom runs her errands. Some days its so hot she won’t even let me do my sniff-sniff around the yard! Hot weather also means that when I do get to go with mom she runs the air conditioning instead of having the windows rolled down. Oh well, this too shall pass! Just to remind you about hot weather I am posting an infographic from the ASPCA. Let’s be safe out there everyone!  Pantingly yours, LadyBird

And finally one of me. It shows you how hot I was! After mom took this picture we sat down for awhile and she gave me some water to cool off. Tomorrow I will show you the bridge lift! it was so cool! Bye until then!!

 I was so hot when mom took this photo! She got me in the shade for some water and into a cool car!!

National Pink Day is observed annually on June 23rd.  This day is set aside for the color pink and all it represents.

First used as a color name in the late 17th century, pink as a pale red color which got its name from a flower of same name.

Surveys were taken in both the United States and Europe with results indicating that the color pink combined with white or pale blue is most commonly associated with femininity, sensitivity, tenderness, childhood and the romantic.  Pink, when combined with violet or black is associated with eroticism and seduction.

Dating back to the 14th century, “to pink” (the verb) means “to decorate with a perforated or punched pattern”.

In the Middle Ages, pink was not a common color.  Occasionally it was seen in women’s fashion and religious art.  In the 13th and 14th century, the Christ child was sometimes portrayed dressed in pink, the color associated with the body of Christ. Pink was mainly used for the flesh color of faces and hands during the Renaissance.

The Rococo Period (1720-1777) was the golden age for the color pink.  Pastel colors became very fashionable in all the courts of Europe during this time.  Madame de Pompadour (1721-1764), the mistress of King Louis XV of France, was known for wearing the color pink, often combined with light blue.  At one point in time, Ms. Pompadour had a particular tint of pink made specifically for her.

Pink ribbons or decorations were worn by young boys in 19th century England.  The men in England wore red uniforms and since boys were considered small men, boys wore pink.

Pink became much bolder, brighter and more assertive in the 20th century and in 1931, the color “Shocking Pink” was introduced.

As one of the most common colors of flowers, pink serves to attract the insects and birds that are necessary for pollination.
