Blue Monday - Blue Angels

Welcome! It's Blue Monday! For instructions, just click here.

I need Blogger L❤ve too! So, please leave me a comment after you link in.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I've seen the amazing aerobatic maneuvers of the Blue Angels flying in their Diamond Formation. They fly so close to each other that it's frightening. You can check out their link here.


The mission of the Blue Angels is to enhance Navy recruiting, and credibly represent Navy and Marine Corps aviation to the United States and its Armed Forces to America and other countries as international ambassadors of good will.




Look at this amazing formation!

The Blue Angels are scheduled to appear close to me in Lakeland, Florida April 2-3.


Have you ever had the opportunity to see them?


Happy Blue Monday!

Blue Monday - My Library

Hello, it finally came . . . Happy Spring!

It's Blue Monday! Come celebrate the color we best--blue!

For instructions, please click here.

Feel free to grab the
Blue Monday Code on my sidebar and place it directly onto your Blue Monday post.

Check the other participants and wish them a Happy Blue Monday!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I love to read and maintain a book blog where I review what I've read. I'm planning a giveaway in a couple of weeks.

In my search for things blue, I spotted this beautiful blue library sign. It stands outside of my local library.



This is the side of the library. I captured the sky and the flag because they both contain more blue.



The city began as a train station around 1910. To commemorate the town's beginning, the library has an interesting 3-D brick sculpture of a train pointed toward the entrance. You can see the entrance by looking at the right side of this photo by the white railing.


Here's a close-up. I think it's quite unique with its 3-D effect. As we walk through the doors, the train is aimed right at us.


Do you like to read?

Happy Blue Monday!

Blue Monday - Spring Break!

Welcome! It's Blue Monday! For instructions, just click here.

Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links and wishing them a Happy Blue Monday!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Two of my seven (yes, seven!) grandchildren came to visit Johnny and me this past week during their Spring Break. They went to the beach and bought these T-shirts.

Zachary's T-shirt is blue, and Ara's is purple, a cousin of blue, with some of her lettering in blue!



They're a bit difficult to read. They say, " Spring Break, 2011, Clearwater Beach."

Zachary, 18, attends University of Florida and Ara, 16, attends Santa Fe Community College.




Remember when this time was called "Easter vacation"?

Happy Blue Monday!

Happy St. Patrick's Day this Thursday!

Blue Monday - West Side Story

Welcome! It's Blue Monday! For instructions, just click here.

Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links and wishing them a Happy Blue Monday!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Johnny and I took Jenna, our eighteen year-old granddaughter, to see West Side Story at the Straz Center for the Performing Arts this past week. We all loved it! Of course, I spotted some Blue!

The dancing was amazing. Look at the vertical jump. Look at the air space! Also, please note the beautiful Blue costumes.




The Jets preform "Cool." There's a blue dress on the left. I love her extension and pointed toe.





Playing the part of Maria, Ali Ewoldt sings, "I Feel Pretty." Note her blue! dress.
Her voice was superb!




Have you seen West Side Story--either the movie or the play?


Happy Blue Monday!
