Weekly Photo Challenge: The Golden Hour

Not very often, I get a craving for greasy fast foods. It is advisable to avoid McDonald’s drive-thru during dinner rush hour. Not unless you do not mind the extra wait time for your FAST food.

I did mind the extra wait this afternoon. Lucky, the weekly photo challenge called for  a golden hour moment.

Perfect…my photograph and haiku:

Golden hour

a global fast-food delight

I enjoyed putting this together for the Weekly Photo Challenge: The Golden Hour. Thank you for joining me…you made my Happy Meal all the more enjoyable.


SUNDAY POST : Splendid–Silent Sun

Guess what?

Despite the heat wave and wild brush fires popping up all over the place around here, yesterday afternoon, the sun decided to give a dazzling and splendid show to anyone who paused for a moment to look up to the skies.

A splendid gift indeed!

WOW, is the expression I used as I looked up into the sky and as the late Freddy Mercury, lead singer for the rock band, Queen once said, “I like to be surrounded by splendid things.”

Indeed, a splendid gift from the sun that briefly surrounded my world and despite all the problems the heat wave is bringing; there truly is a blessing-in-disguise. Some of you may know how much the dratted bug; the mosquito means to me, well, I believe the triple digit temperatures have vaporized a good portion of the mosquito population.

Oh, gee, poor little things…sizzled out before they got a chance to suck the blood right out of me. Poor, poor things.
