Thursday's Things In A Row

Fluffy clouds march across the sky,
the temperature drops and we're all surprised.
Antique search engine, a thing long past,
Won't freeze, won't crash,  find something fast.
Rows of buckets with goodies galore,
to fill rows of jars sitting in the floor!
Screen door holes
 with froggie toes
two of my favorite things in a row.

Vist Pat and you will see
there are many  people
with rows like me.

Watch out, Pat, hit the deck!
I'm addicted and payback's heck!

Love it! How fun! I love the reference to encyclopedias. My son (8) saw them at a garage same recently and wanted to know what they were. I had completely forgotten that to him, if you want to look something up, you use the computer. So we had to have a chat about how *gasp* people used to have to use a *book* to find information out! :)

Double treat, things in a row and a rhyme to make it sweet.

Have a great day!

I love the buckets of vegetables. I like the contrast of the galvanized steel and the different colors of the vegetables. It looks like such a treat.

Sue said...

These just get better and better, Gail.

I love the antique search engine!
I taught gifted kids for years... and BC (before computers) we relied on our encyclopedias. Sad, but the ones I had were at least 10 years old!

The froggy one is my favorite. It's so cool!

The frog clinging to the screen door is a great picture. It should be in a nature magazine.

Love the little frog! Cracked up over "antique search engine". We had a massive set of encyclopedias when I was growing up (I was forever looking up "horse" and as many breeds as I could find every time I came across a new set ;o) Gotta admit, Google's definitely a better way to go (plus there are LOTS more horses to be found on there *grin*).

There's just so much we learn about you every post. Great job of rhyming with the pictures.
