The Colour Pink

The theme this week is "The Colour Pink" Mac, Kathy, Lew, Christine and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Wednesdays and voting begins after that.  I was late this week because of forgetfulness.

I can tell Mac chose this for the ladies because of the spelling of color. I chose this pink rose from my backyard for the header because of the vulnerability of the pedals.  
 I also love the pink peonies in the front yard.
It certainly gives a lot of blooms.
My pink hyacinth puts on a show.
I have a few Pink tulips that are grand.
Here is another pink capture not from the yard.

"Pictures From the Past"

The theme this week by Lew is "Pictures From the PastMac, Kathy, Lew, Christine and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Wednesdays and voting begins after that. 

One  way to get a picture of the past is to take a photo of a printed picture. This one takes me back over 20 years ago and a fishing trip of a lifetime. The place was off the shore of Quepos Costa Rica in the Pacific Ocean. The catch is a 42" Roosterfish, the largest fish I caught that day. The boat was a 24 foot Bertram, very suitable for ocean fishing. The captain asked if we wanted to fish for sailfish but I choose Roosterfish. We caught Blue Runners for bait and started trolling. There were no results and I had my son-in-law to ask the boat captain if I could hold the rod. 12 Roosterfish later and tired out we were done. The captain called the fish el grande and even though I didn't know Spanish I knew what that meant. 
 A picture of my grand kids from the past, they are so cute when they are young and playful.
