Blue Monday # 6 so far for me~~~Hello My Gorgeous and Yes, Beautiful Blogging Girlfriends~~~

Joining Smiling Sally for my 6th Blue Monday..Heyyyyy Sally!!!

This may not be quite what you'll expect for BLUE but I just had to show you the BLUE Ribbon our youngest, Billy, received on his last track and field day at school. We were there too but the photo Kent took wasn't very clear..( We never said we were photographers) ;0)
So here is Our Billy (the kid), AKA, Little Bill,(you know from the cartoon by Bill Cosby) Billster Bob, don't know where that nickname came from though, anyway, those are a couple of his nicknames. He was my last child and he is the most, shall I say, Unique !!!
I made him, yes, almost forced him to pose for this pic last night just for my Blue Monday event.

Anyway, hope you all have plans for summer, even if your not able to go on a vacation, like Kent and I, we'll be in our pool often when we aren't on the road doing our card deliveries .. We'll be saving up for ours to do Disneyland next summer again.. It just may be the 2 of us too. How Sweet does that sound???
Of course it all depends on what the Great LORD Almighty AKA The Main Man has in store for us Elwood's here in Red Oak..

Here is a Beautiful Creature of Gods Creation we took a few months ago on 1 of our deliveries traveling through Le Claire Iowa by the river.. it was like, pinch me Hun,,are they for real???!!!

  1. What a good boy to pose for mom. Nice going for the blue ribbon!! That sky is amazing as is the eagle!

  2. Well, I think that blue ribbon is a PERFECT blue to show!!

  3. Congrats to Billy, Dena! That's something I would be proud to post for Blue Monday. What an amazing picture you got o the eagle. I haven't been so lucky. There is one that flies over us almost everyday but it is always wrong timing. I never have my camera with me. Today there were 2 of them and I had my camera but they were too fast and I could not take their picture....Christine
