Perchance to dream

It’s late as I write this post. I went out to dinner with a co-worker and was late getting home. And then someone wanted to play.

Don’t get any ideas.

That someone went through his whole toy box and then chose the perfect one. He’s now at my feet having one of those running dreams. I believe he’s chasing squirrels or groundhogs.

It’s a mystery to me.

And speaking of mysteries ~

Mystery solved on the comment that was left. It turned out to be an old friend – someone from my long-ago past who was also a friend of my husband’s. We were kids when we knew each other and went to high school together. He had some old friends over and someone mentioned that I had a blog.

It just surprised me to hear from him, is all.

: : :

I took this photo last week while visiting my friends in Mississippi. They have pots of hibiscus around their pool. I went swimming and it was beautiful. And I looked great in my bikini.

Ok. Now who’s the one that’s dreaming here?

* snort *

I do tend to snort a lot lately. It’s so ladylike ~

Until tomorrow, my friends . . .

So glad the mystery of your commenter is solved.

Sounds like your trip was great. Loving your pics - as usual.

I don't know what's better, a snort or a cackle...I tend to do both, depending on the laughter level :)

Glad that you found out who your mystery writer was.

Your snorting gave me a good snort (and I really needed one because of this: http://boulderneighdressage.blogspot.com/); thanks. ;-)

Don't waste your time being ladylike. It detracts from creativity :)

Glad you found out the mystery man's ID, although a good mystery doesn't remain a mystery very long, does t! Glad he wasn't another Ted Bundy, or something like it!

Hibiscus? Even in our hottest summers they don't grow here - sigh.

Love this photo. I had lots of hibiscus in the yard when we lived in Arizona. They are such a yummy flower.

Glad you now know who the mystery man is and that he revealed his identity to you. Takes all the uncomfortable feelings away you were having hopefully.

Snorting is fine as long as you don't blow drink out cha nose cause that hurts.

Beautifl color on the flower.

Daryl said...

Waiting for pix of New Orleans ... and inquiring minds must know which toy did he pick?

Oh I love hibiscus. We used to have a pool and I had several potted ones around. Lovely.

I love hibiscus. We have deep reds ones around our vacation home in bloom right now. Why is red so hard to photograph?! Ugh.
I love to snort. Very therapeutic!

Love this photo! It reminds me of a wonderful tour through the botanical gardens near Sarasota FL I went on years ago...I never realized how many colors hibiscus comes in!

I am happy the mystery has ended well...and we can all resume snorting:)
