I Guess That's Why They Call It the Blues

Queen of procrastination that I am...Pippa over at her porch had a game of capturing "the blues" last week...I am finally posting my has also gotten the song "I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues" by Elton John etched in my brain!

Seems like I can ALWAYS find a way to get the grandchildren into any project...I must confess these were not taken last week! (but...they capture blue)

Packed and ready to GO!!! Anyone still want to go on a road trip with me? I promise I'll use a map!

In the kitchen blues, a spot of herbal tea anyone? Or shall I cook something...hmmm...the recipe is here somewhere...

"Swiped" the lucky elephant from my Mom, she has "its" four brothers and sisters...I told her I would give it back after I took a picture and she said I could have her! Mom decided to decorate her bare tulip tree with a drawer full of Mardi Gras beads.

So, that's it for this past week's game of the blues! I guess that's why they call it the blues...friend that I am I did not put the song in the background of this post...because I am nice that way... anyone have any suggestions for getting it "unstuck" ?

Lots of great photos. I love the bags and the elephant. But my favorite is those blue eyes.

WOWZA Connie!! - THAT MUST be your baby (and by baby I of course mean CAR). WOW> just WOW.

No wonder you take long car trips and lose yourself in the mountains. I WOULD TOO!!

Great pictures! I think the only way to get rid of a song that is stuck in your head is to replace it with another.

Wow, could that girl's eyes be any bluer? Beautiful! If I ever do take a road trip with you, no map allowed. We'll just get lost and find something wonderful. And the ONLY way to get a song out of your head is to infect someone else with it!

Thanks for stopping by my blue offering as well, Connie.

Wow, you have LOTS of blues. You really have an eye for art.

Love the book backs especially, and the bag and bottle.
