Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.

Feeling On Top of the World!

This week, share an image of what’s on top from your own life.

— Michelle W., The Daily Post

More of what’s on top:

  • Ferris wheel, Calgary Stampede:

Self missed this ride at the 2016 Calgary Stampede!

  • Look up, and what do you see?

Big, Clear, Prairie Sky! Calgary, July 2016

  • Finally, the view from self’s room in London, off Russell Square. She asked whose backyard that was, and was told: “It belongs to the Duke of Bedford and his heirs.” At least, he has nice art. Definitely, the cherry on top! (Self can’t quite get over the fact that something like this is sitting in someone’s private backyard. Something like this belongs in a museum! Wouldn’t you agree, dear blog readers? It reminds her of one of those thin Giacomettis.)

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.

MORE CHERRY ON TOP (Meaning: Hats)

This week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge is about:

The cherry on top.

The icing on the cake

“a desirable feature perceived as the finishing touch to something that is already very good.” (Oxford English Dictionary)

Here are three “cherry on top” pictures.

  •  Karina (The cherry on top is that she is so sweet. And likes wearing baseball caps. She lives in Calgary)

Karina is self’s guide to all things YA. Her latest book recommendation: Sarah J. Maas’s THRONE OF GLASS (Exciting read!)

  • The Calgary Stampede is fabulous. The “cherry on top” is that everywhere you look, you see people wearing cowboy hats:

Don’t ask self what “Beaver Balls” are. She has no idea.

Self took this picture during the Annual Redwood City Fourth of July Parade. Look at the man’s fantastic sombrero! Definitely the “cherry on top.”

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.

 

 

Details: Summer Garb, So On Fleek, July 2016

I love the exotic and the mundane, the wondrous and the earthy.

—  Jen H., The Daily Post

This month is the height of summer.

Summer is self’s favorite season.

It is hot, and the corn and watermelon are sweet.

Garb is: Anything Goes.

For self’s first post on The Daily Post’s Photo Challenge this week — DETAILS — she decided to share pictures of clothing that caught her eye at various outdoor events this month:

(1) At the Calgary Stampede, held every July in fabulous Calgary, Alberta: A young Mom rocks the pink cowboy boots and the gold tote bag combo!

DSCN9468

(2)  A couple crossing the intersection of Jefferson and Middlefield in downtown Redwood City during a lull in the annual Redwood City Fourth of July Parade are rockin’ the Stars and Stripes! You can only pull this kind of look off in July. Otherwise, you just look cheesy!

3)  Finally, another Stars’n Stripes outfit from the 2016 Redwood City Fourth of July parade:

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
