SkyWatch Friday (my sixteenth) -- Busy sky -- Lazy sky

.
This is at the only traffic signal between Guatamela City and Huehuetenango. They have very nice and clean rest rooms as well as a Coca Cola Light and Milky Way (my breakfast for the morning).

How about this for a peaceful sky?

I guess this shows that a few people make a big difference!

One single impression: Gift

The Gift

Daddy whadja bring me
don' see no big sack
postcards wine yellow cheese
whaja bring me back

Ya know I've been so good
a toy maybe two
cuddly bear an' a doll
really one will do

Puzzle game or some beads
boy's toys play in dirt
Daddy whadja bring me
Oh—pretty t-shirt

Thank you lots

SkyWatch Friday (my fourteenth) -- At the top of the world ceiling


[large picture] [super sized]

Not a cloud in sight for this picture. There were a few, see the pictures at the bottom.

Here we have a view of a ceiling in a bedroom.



This was while we toured the Royal Yacht Britannia during our visit to Edinburgh, Scotland.

While there we found this pretty stuffed bear riding on top of a ceiling fan in one of the bedrooms.

We have no explanation for why it was there.

One single impression: Gold

Gold

[large picture] [super sized]
.

No
All that glitters is not gold

This glittering little red truck
is more precious than gold to me

Should you get a little red truck
take you where e're you want to go

My glittering little red truck
will cost an arm and leg to you

'Cause my precious little red truck
worth to me more than all the gold

Keep your gold leave my truck alone

SkyWatch Friday (my thirteenth) -- Fall sky above Texas orchard

.
We call these things Horse Apples but their proper name is Osage Oranges. They grow on a lot of native trees around here and are generally called a nuisance.

The fruit can be used as insect repellent but it is hard to get into a spray bottle.

Down the road a bit is this ornamental pear tree in bloom. Many of the pear trees are in bloom here right now. This is one of ours in the front yard.

I blame it on shock caused by Hurricane Ike, their system is messed up and they think they have to make blooms so late in the year.

One single impression: Serendipity


Serendipity

I came for dinner
nice landlord did have
running late I was
try to save the night

If the food's all gone
then enjoy the dance
don't waste the evening
try to save the night

Surprise oh surprise
saved a plate they did
will eat with my friend
going to save the night

Waiting too this girl
that's how met my love
she to be my wife
saved the night we did

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Not came saw went—stayed
behold life's mystery revealed
Serendipity
