Friendly Fill-Ins

Week 62: July 14, 2017

  1. My inner child is happiest when reading.  I have always been an avid reader.  I can escape into many worlds by opening a book and getting lost in it.
  2. My favorite month is September.  It’s the month I was born, the month I got married and the month my son was born.
  1. My favourite commercial is I don’t really have a favorite commercial, but it used to be the Allstate Insurance commercials featuring Kasey Kahne.  He is a NASCAR racer driving the No. 5 for Hendricks Motorsports.  At the time of the commercials he drove the No. 9.  These commercials featured three middle aged women who were obsessed with Kasey and they continually caused him to try to drive away from them and winded up having an accident.  They were really comical.  He is my favorite race car drive.  
  1. Personally, I don’t care for grocery store checkout gossip wrags.  I hate them!  I can remember so many times when I was shopping with my kids when they were small and got asked questions about sex and paternity and is there a God from my kids.  They are useless rubbish.  Ok, off my soap box now.  🙂


The Dancing Bumble Bees

Daily Prompt:  Bumble

Every morning when I walk Gracie, I pass a beautiful yellow mimosa. As I walk under its branches I see the fuzzy black and yellow bumble bees busy at work pollinating the flowers.

I am allergic to bees, so I don’t dally along this part of my walk, but I do love to watch the bees. It looks like they are dancing with each other in uncoordinated movements back and forth from flower to flower. They pass over and under each other never touching, but coming very close.

We used to have a swimming pool and when we were landscaping around it we were told that bees liked yellow flowers the most.  So we never had yellow flowers in our yard. I always felt bad about that because yellow flowers just seem happy.

Watching these dancing bees made me think about this Neal Diamond song from 1979. Take a listen.
