  15. Great Googly Moogly! Haha, I have no idea what that means, but I heard it today and I just had to say it again! ★ Stars are really special for me. I want to encourage everyone… presuming the world does not end in a couple of weeks… to check out the sky on August 12th next year. ★ Great Google it up! If you haven’t seen it before… find a way, and bring a wish or thirty! @♥

    Congrats, Caroline! Thanks always for thinking of me!

    Reply
    • Great Googly Moogly! I love it…! It’s worth repeating, Anne…! ;)
      I found a number of ‘cruises’ leaving August 12th; I don’t think though, they’re worth ‘wishing’ upon…. I’ll have to do a little more checking…! haha.. :)

    • Okay, Anne… found it…! ;)
      “This meteor shower gets the name “Perseids” because it appears to radiate from the constellation Perseus.”
      This is to occur during our winter, so hopefully we’ll have some clear nights…!
      July 23 marks its beginning and shall continue to approximately August 15th with the 12th/13th having the most meteor showers… Sounds great..! :)

    • I can say it here ’cause this is my blog….. Your photography of the murals is excellent…!
      Your choice of mural is wonderful (I’m wondering if the murals of Winnipeg are all fantastic, or are you choosing the very best)…? I’m absolutely loving your photographic ‘perspective’ of the images too…. In short, Resa; you have found another calling… xoxoxo

      • Lovely Carolyn,

        The first pic I ever sent FTZ was Chaplin (which is an exceptionally rare find because of the historic component) then House Of Blues. then The Painters and Laying Down The Tracks.

        These were all on my daily path, convenient, and therefore I took the shots. It was an organic happening.

        After that, I do tend to want to show the best. However, there’s still many amazing murals to be shown from my collection, as well as regular wonderful Murals.
        There are definitely more bests!

        Thank you for seeing my new joy as a possible calling!
        OMG Carolyn, you should see some of the Toronto Murals I’ve shot!
        xoxoxooxo
