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.

Here we are again, with Manic Monday! This is where we get a song title/video prompt, and we use it somehow in our post. It’s fun trying to come up with something each week. To join in, and see other entries, just click the above link for details.

The prompt this time was, “Summertime Blues”.

I’m a day late, so posting Manic Monday on Tuesday. It took me forever to figure out the music video thing, and how to put it in a post. Something has changed, and I don’t know if it was me, or the youtube videos or what, but I spent way too long on trying to get it to work. Then, I couldn’t find much information on this song, so spent another long time researching, until I came up with a little bit about it. So, it was so late, and Monday was almost over. I said to heck with it, I’ll do it tomorrow, and now tomorrow is today. 🙂

I’m not sure about the summertime blues part of the thing we are to write about. Does it mean you’re sad and blue in the summer? Does it mean you have blue skies? We don’t live by the sea, so I can’t write about blue ocean waves. That would be nice, though. We have lots of blue skies here. We also have very colorful sunrises and sunsets. Except yesterday, it rained all day, and will rain some more today. So the skies are gray, not blue.

Well, enough about all that. It seems in this song I chose, he is singing about love, and lost love, in the summer time. It’s sort of a sad song, but funny the way he sings it. Do you remember it?

This song is the first one I thought of, as it has those words in the lyrics.
