July Squares # 7 – Blue – Summertime Blues


July Squares # 7 – Blue – Summertime Blues

July Blues



This is a month of blue! It’s a fun challenge created by Becky of “The Life of B”, and each day we show something blue. The only rule beside blue, is that the photo MUST be SQUARE!

As an added bonus, I’ve found songs with blue in the title or lyrics. 🙂

Thanks, Becky!

This is a very large and tall colorful soldier, or maybe one of those Christmas nutcracker guys. He is dressed in a tall red hat with blue accents, a blue and red coat with a white X and belt, and blue pants. I took this a long time ago at our local amusement part ‘Joyland’, and he is standing tall by one of the rides. (not shown)

I haven’t had occasion to use this photo before, I don’t think, but he looks pretty regal against the clear blue sky.

We’d gone to the amusement park with our daughters, sons-in-law and our grand-kids that hot summer day. It was a lot of fun.




“Summertime Blues”, by Alan Jackson, was released from his album, “Who Am I”, in 1994, and on the Arista Nashville label. This is his cover of the original Eddie Cochran song, written by Eddie Cochran and Jerry Capehart in 1958.



Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️

  1. Great photo for the Blue/July Square prompt. The figure looks very regal against the blue sky. I love that Allan Jackson song – took me right back to 1994! 🙂

    • Thanks, Shelley!
      It’s a great big statue there at the amusement park – why, I don’t know! haha
      Isn’t it great how a song can put you right back to a time when you were hearing it a lot. 🙂

      • You’re welcome! LOL – at least you remembered you had a photo of it to share!
        Yes, some songs take me right back to the car I was driving or the room I was sitting in when I heard it and sang off-key to it! LOL!

      • 🙂 It’s neat, too, that after hearing those old songs so many times, the words just come back like no time has passed.
        Thanks, Shelley!
