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, or at least something to do with the photo. 🙂

Thanks, Becky!

Today is the last day of the Blue July Squares! It’s been a lot of fun to find blue things, and also some songs to go along with the photos.

Thank you, Becky, for hosting this wonderful challenge! 🙂

For the last entry of my blues, I’m just showing several photos of some I took that never made it into the earlier days of the month.

  • Red, White, & Blue USA flag inspired helium balloon
  • Miscellaneous items (small fabric sack with blue & white candy inside, A toy blue and yellow thermometer, a white pencil with a cat’s head wearing a stocking hat of blue, white & yellow, and a blue ruler,
  • a sign at Ft. Davis TX saying ‘enlisted men’s barracks 1876 – 1887, Canteen 1888 – 1891)
  • White jellyfish enhanced by blue lights in a large aquarium at Kansas City Missouri Aquarium
  • My blue magnetic board with some magnets that have blue on them
  • My blue magnetic board with lots of words in blue

We saw these cute little Guinea Pigs at the pet store. They were brown and white, and had a blue plastic ball to run around in. There was also a water bottle with a blue piece on it, and they had straw bedding to sit on.

This is a really cute video of a long haired white and tan Guinea Pig, and a slick shiny haired black & white one doing tricks. So cute! 🙂

This is a real pretty appliqued  fabric. It has a blue house, and blue sky, and lots of other details. There are clouds, other houses, cows, ladies in bright skirts, and palm trees.

I don’t really know what you’d call this. Maybe a wall hanging, or maybe a table runner? It’s about 3 feet long and one foot wide. I got it at a yard sale one time. There was a little tag on it that said it was hand crafted in some island country. Sorry I can’t find the tag today. I still have it somewhere.

This is our blue pick-up truck. It’s a Dodge Ram, and we call it Big Blue. We’ve had it a long time, and it’s not fancy at all. It has an old cassette player slot which we never use, and it has crank style window handles to raise or lower the windows.

We don’t have another vehicle, so I’m glad this one keeps on running.

“Pickup Truck Song”, by Jerry Jeff Walker, can be found on his 1989 album, “Live at Gruene Hall”. It is on the T&TM/Ryko label.

This is my blue butterfly necklace. I probably got it at a yard sale, or maybe even at a craft store in the jewelry department. I can’t remember, since I’v had it a long time.

It is fairly thick. I can’t tell if it is made of glass, or some kind of resin, but I like the tie-dye effect of the blues and tans. . I strung it on a blue silk cord.

And just a picture of our Siamese cat, Big Man, and his pretty blue eyes. 🙂

This is my coffee cup. I drink my coffee from this midnight blue coffee cup with a white alien face on it. It also says Roswell New Mexico. That’s where I bought it when we visited Roswell and the UFO Museum.  It’s kind of hard to see here, but on the midnight blue sky cup, there are tiny white stars. (click on photo to enlarge)

This one, “Midnight in the Desert”, written and sung by Crystal Gayle, is just a beautiful song. I like everything about it. I first heard it on the radio program, “Coast to Coast”, Art Bell’s midnight show about all thing mysterious. I’ve listened to his talk program for many years, and it is everything I love to think about…UFOs, ghosts, conspiracy, and all things spooky/paranormal. The song was written for the show. From what I could find out, this song was debuted in 2009, on the Goldenlane Records label.

Enjoy!

This is a bright blue butterfly all lit up in the dark. It is a battery butterfly that flashes all different colors. When I was trying to get a photo, I had to go into the bathroom with all the lights off, and snap a bunch of pictures to get a clear one, as it flashes so fast. The second photo is of the butterfly not lit up.

This is a molded plastic? statue of a bear. He is wearing blue striped overalls and a blue hat. He also has a darker blue long sleeved shirt on. I saw this when we visited the Kansas City Zoo. It was at the little railroad station, where we caught an open air train that circled around the zoo. I think he was supposed to represent a train engineer. He was actually as tall as a person.
