Tomorrow will be the beginning of a very special week..
My sister Di arrives from Florida!
She's trading the humidity and white sands of the gulf coast for a change of pace as well as different scenery.
Flip flops for hiking boots..
First on the agenda is a trip with our cameras to view a bit of Autumn in Colorado..
The Aspens are rumored to be almost at peak..
We shall see..
On Saturday, there is a wedding in the family...
On Monday, Di heads south to the Great Sand Dunes National Park to meet up with friends.
She and her friends will then head to another must do..
Mesa Verde National Park..
While she's away..then It's my turn to play..
Like a true Mermaid,I'll leave my cozy pool..
To check out all the fountains and pools...
of Las Vegas!
Di and I will meet back here in Denver for more exploring and fun..
before she bids adieu to me and Colorado..
heading back to reality..of cooler temps, lower humidity..
in the coastal paradise of home..Florida!
Please join these other fun Wednesday Parties..
Have a wonderful Wednesday!

this word brought so many images flooding my mind..
Black was evil and white represents purity and goodness
my childhood tv programs were watched on a set receiving only Black and white images...
.of cowboys and Indians..
Black for the bad guys..
white hats for the good guys..
.. under one of the white hats was a black mask..
the Lone Ranger.
but Zorro dressed in all black.. and he was a a good guy.
Then we had the fabulous Fred Astaire..
dancing the night away in top hat and tails..
How thrilled I was with NBC..
introducing Living Color with the Peacock logo
Initally cars were only made in black..
I remember my hideous black framed glasses..
am so glad for the numerous choices available today..
the little Black dress..
can be dressed up,
or down ..
depending on the time and the occasion..
adding pearls..either black..
short.. or long..
or why not both?..
and of course Black patent shoes..
For little girls.
and big girls..
Black..can denote so many things..
most pertaining to color ..
as black birds..
black eyed peas..the vegetable!
or even lack thereof..black holes of space..
driving on pitch black night..
depths of despair..
but black can also represent fun..
as friend's listed in my Little Black Book..
to call on my Black telephone..
or converse via e-mail on my Black dell computers..
while sending photos from my Nikon camera,,
maybe.. eating Licorice (yukky)
or drinking black coffee..
..thinking about Black cats
and witches for Halloween..
PRAYING I don't get a lump of coal in my stocking at Christmas..!
Hope your Monday is as colorful as mine....
gonna be missing my Monday colors with Jen..
Maybe she has another fun thingy for Mondays.
Thanks ever so much!!
Linking with other Monday places with these gracious and much appreciated hostesses..
