Yesterday's Songs

Yesterday's songs
Don't stay around long
Not much anymore
Yesterday's words
Don't make themselves heard
Like they did before

Yesterday's songs
Don't seem to belong
They're here and they're gone

Yesterday's moves
Don't stay in the grooves
They keep moving on

Maybe yesterday's rhyme
Was for yesterday's time
And the future's not ours to see
But there's some things that always will be

Well howdy doody girls and boys! Do you know what time it is? It's time for Hootin' Anni's Thursday Theme Song . Grab a few photo and pick and song and you are ready to join us for the fun. Visit Anni at Thursday Theme Song.

American Wigeon

Both photos are of male American Wigeons. I find their coloring fascinating, especially the grayish-blue bill. These photos were taken at one of our local parks. If you want to know more about this little duck go HERE.

For more watery photos visit Watery Wednesday and to explore the great outdoors go to Outdoor Wednesday.

Forever Autumn

The summer sun is fading
As the year grows old
And darker days are drawing near
The winter winds will be much colder
Now you're not here

I watch the birds fly South
Across the autumn sky
And one by one they disappear
I wish that I was flying with them
Now you're not here

Like the sun through the trees
You came to love me
Like a leaf on a breeze you blew away

Through autumns golden gown
We used to kick our way
You always loved this time of year
Those fallen leaves lay undisturbed now

'Cause you're not here

Won't you come and join us at Hootin' Anni's Thursday Theme Song? Pick a song and add some photos, this is fun.

In case you are wondering, all of these photos are from last year. We are still green with only the slightest hint of fall color.

Rock 'N Roll Heart

I've got a feeling we could be serious, girl
Right at this moment, I could promise you the world

Before we go crazy, before we explode
There's something 'bout me, baby, you got to know
You got to know

I get off on 57 Chevys

I get off on screaming guitar

Like the way it hits me every time it hits me
I've got a rock and roll
I've got a rock and roll heart

It's almost Thursday and time for two exciting memes. ThisWay/ThursWay is brought to you by Freda at Day One. Be sure to check out Freda's blog and join in the fun.

It also means it's Hootin' Anni's Thursday Theme Song. Pick some photos and put them to music, it's fun and easy. Check out the other entries and then try your own.

Curves and Chrome

This weekend was our city's annual Wheelin' Weekend car show. There were almost ten city blocks of antique and classic cars. This bright yellow really stood out from the rest. It is a 1927 Ford T Coupe.

Start you Monday off right, visit Mellow Yellow Monday.

Where's The Train?

We explored the area around these Eastern Oregon bridges on our way to Idaho last spring. The one in the foreground is a railroad bridge which is still used. The road that goes across the bridge in the background has been closed. The theme for this week's Photo Time is Overpass or Underpass.

A Summer Song

Trees swayin' in the summer breeze
Showin' off their silver leaves
As we walked by.

They say that all good things must end someday

Autumn leaves must fall

But don't you know that it hurts me so
To say goodbye to you
Wish you didn't have to go
No, no, no, no

Chad & Jeremy, A Summer Song

Blanket Flower

First there is a bud.

Full bloom.

Fading away.

The Blanket Flower (Gaillardia aestivalis) is a drought tolerant perennial from the sunflower family. The name is in reference to the brightly colored blankets made by native Americans. Gaillardia will grow in very dry and harsh conditions.

This month's theme for the Brenda Photo Challenge is Photo Essays. Be sure to click on the link and visit other participants in the challenge.

This post is also for Mellow Yellow Monday! Everyone have a safe and happy holiday weekend!

Not My Grandpa's Tractor

It was a dark and overcast day at last Saturday's Kids' Market but that didn't stop the fun. There were lots of things to see and explore including an exhibit of farm equipment. Everything was open for exploration.

This is a poor quality photo but the smiles still shine through.

For more photos visit Freda at Day One for ThisWay ThursWay!
