Rock Climbing

Turn around......we're over here!

"how's my pony-tail holding up?"

There are rock climbing walls all over the city! and admission is FREE!

"I should've worn shoes!"

"Bathing suit? uh---no this is NOT a bathing suit y'all. These are my short-shorts! 1959 original swimsuit?--nope, no way!-this is a "play-suit"! A "romper"? Work-out attire?----okay, okay---it's a bathing suit! But I HAVE put a little t-shirt on over it for coverage, see? I AM THE 1959 version after all....and a lady my age doesn't show TOO much, right?

"gotta catch up on the blogs!"

Hood Ornaments

Spotted this on a car! I nearly walked right past it.

It looks antique. I love seeing neat old things like this. I'm sure it has an interesting story in it's past.........

Maybe it's something that has been handed down in the family? Does anyone remember hood ornaments? I wonder how that trend got started?

City Yard

A pretty yard in the city. Nice little bird bath, a big old tree to sit underneath and chat or to rest with a good summer novel and big glass of sweet tea. 

"Usually by the first of March, the short winter is over and Spring pre-empts the city. This is a dramatic invasion, starting with the waxy perfection of the camellia bloom and a spray or two of yellow jessamine. While the nights are still frosty it seems to hang poised and then descends, sweeping the parks and gardens with a tidal wave of color and perfume. Climbing roses foam over old garden walls. Wisteria hangs like purple clouds in ancient pine and oak, and everywhere the azalea seems to spend itself in a short breathing burst of color."...DuBose Heyward, Charleston Poet

Did you spot the "see Rock City" birdhouse?
another Charleston yard I love.

Summer Rain

I love summer rain!
I love to hear the thunder and I don't mind the lightning....if it's not too close!

Everything gets washed nice and clean. And the plants and vegetables and flowers get a good drink!

We were walking to supper that night and a couple of times we had to stop and take a break underneath awnings.

By the time we finished eating, the rain had stopped and it was a quiet and peaceful night in Charleston.
I was so glad I had worn my rain boots and my feet didn't get wet at all!

It poured the rain and we had a great walk anyway! Thank you for visiting with me today, and are you getting much rain where you live?

Man in the Window

See him? Look closely. Up there. On the right.

In the window. He's not really moving. Is he real???
He seems to be looking down. He also looks angry! (to me anyway) And at night they leave the light on in that room up there, so you can still see him clearly.
I have tried to find out the mystery but have no idea. There is a museum in the building with  mannequins, so somebody put him up there I guess. In the meantime, he sits high above Broad Street, guarding and watching silently. And not moving much.

Hi There again, Gumby!

While photographing this building on the corner, I had to walk around the corner and say "howdy" to our friend Gumby!
He was just as friendly as the last time!
See how he likes to put his arm around me....LOL
If you are a new reader, here is the post about Gumby from last summer, click below:
Meeting Gumby last Summer!
Interesting building. I do love the green they used on the window trim! I'm pretty sure those are apartments up there.
We walked by there again last week---and Gumby is gone!
Gumby has left the building!
Good-bye, Gumby! We liked you.

Night Cats

Some city kitties roam around the streets at night. 

 up and down the streets....sometimes up and over cars.

This little blue gray kitty was so friendly and sweet--and had no collar. I would've loved to have brought her home....but we are full here. And who knows--she might have a good home?
What was funny was when we turned to leave and I made these last two pictures...........
Laser eyes!

Flashlight eyes on high beam!  ha ha LOL

Thank you for coming to visit me today and hope you have a real nice Sunday!
