Mt. Rainier Above the Clouds – Guest Blog

Today’s guest blogger is 8 years old, starting Third grade in the fall. Wow! Look at this photo she took from her flight’s window.

Thanks Ellie, for allowing me to share your shot of Mt. Rainier, Washington. If you hit the link on the name you’ll see it’s also known as Tahoma or Tacoma, I looked up the elevation and it’s 14,411 feet (4,392 meters)

Have a wonderful vacation and thanks for sharing your photo today. Your grandma has been a blog follower and good comment writer for years.

Random Can – Guest Blog

My granddaughter Maura (12) texted me this random can of tomato sauce she saw in Sam’s Club on Thursday. I love that she noticed it, photographed it and shared it with me.

I’ve photographed out-of-place items in stores before and have been astonished at what people leave in odd spots.

Meet Oscar

Oscar is a labradoodle who will be one in August. He’s enjoying being part of Laura, James and Charlie’s family. They’re enjoying him, too. ❤️

I don’t think he’s supposed to be on the couch but I wasn’t going to tell him
How do those balloons stay afloat?
A secret for cousin Jack
He moved his head so it’s a blur but he certainly looked tall when he joined me on the couch

Daisies and a Bicycle Built for Two

Daisy Bell (A Bicycle Built for Two) song written in 1892 Daisy, Daisy give me your answer, do.

“Science fiction author Arthur C. Clarke witnessed the IBM 704 demonstration during a trip to Bell Labs in 1962 and referred to it in the 1968 novel and film 2001: A Space Odyssey, in which the HAL 9000 computer sings “Daisy Bell” during its gradual deactivation” Wikipedia

Now You Are Six

Now We Are Six.

When I was one,
I had just begun.
When I was two,
I was nearly new.
When I was three,
I was hardly me.
When I was four,
I was not much more.
When I was five,
I was just alive.
But now I am six,
I’m as clever as clever.
So I think I’ll be six now
for ever and ever.
