It’s just so wrong when you’re minding your own business, trying to keep cool, trusting your family to do the right thing, and your uncle sneaks up onto the deck and pummels you with buckets of water.

Wrong!  On so many levels!

In my son’s defense, it was hot that day.

And to our granddaughter’s credit,

She done him wrong!

Two wrongs DO make it right! 


I was so excited when I spotted this in my garden late  yesterday afternoon.  I told myself that I would be using this for a post for sure!  And then, along comes Jake‘s challege.  I was all “Yahoo!”

I am no entomologist (and yes, I googled it), so if anyone knows the name of this butterfly/moth, please feel free to comment. 

Ah. Feel free to comment anyway.  Even if you aren’t an expert of le magnifique  papillion. (I knew that one 🙂 )

Makes me think of a beautiful ballerina

And just because I thought these were also very cute…

Though they look very similar, I see a difference in the tips of the bees’ wings.  When I enlarged the photo  on the computer screen, I was amazed at the intricate beauty of those wings.

I hope you enjoyed the close-ups and encourage you to click here for more.

Many thanks Jake.
