Four Deflated Snowmen Found on July First

Four Deflated Snowmen Found on July First.

Yes, it felt like 100 degrees in this heat wave.

At a high school grad party held at North Park Ice Rink.

No ice today.

32nd Annual Duckling Day

Saturday was the 32nd Annual Duckling Day at the Whetstone Branch of the Columbus Library.

Charlie wore his duck costume with mask on for more than an hour. The library had provided the materials to create the paper costume. There were some real ducks to watch splash in a baby pool And a parade led by some of the marching band. The NACHO band played outside the library. I forgot to mention that the 72 degree weather of yesterday dropped thirty degrees today. Brrrr 42!

The puppet show, crafts and folk music inside the library were all fun activities for the kids.

So here’s the blog post featuring Charlie while trying to omit photos of the other children. There was quite a crowd.

Thanking all of the sponsors who made the event possible. Each child received a goody bag with a book!

Here’s Charlie earlier in the day, gluing on the paper feathers

Signs of Spring in Berlin: Weekly Photo Challenge

Awakening 2. Signs of Spring in Berlin. Real time.

Yesterday’s post was of Grandson Charlie when he was brand new, just opening his eyes- from the 2015 archives. I caused a bit of confusion as he’ll celebrate his 3rd birthday in June.

Yes, it’s a Man OUTSIDE, 368 Meters High (that’s 1207 feet)

We were walking around Alexanderplatz looking for a spot to sit to sip a Radler, and my son said, “There’s a man rappelling up on the Fernsehturm” (TV tower).

You can see him in the second, third and fourth photo. Maybe he was cleaning the windows? Can’t see any equipment, though. There’s an observation deck and a restaurant inside the tower where you can get a great view when the sky is this blue.

I never would have seen him if he hadn’t pointed him out to me. Didn’t travel with a big camera this trip, so no 70-200 lens to get a clear view.

Sunday Night Sunset Square

The only requirement was your photo had to be a square. Check!

Gilly’s been posting squares all month so I’m coming into the challenge at the end here on the 25th day. But I had a circle in a square and it was Gilly who was posting in response to BeckyB of Winchester’s March challenge.
