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!
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..! 🙂
It was right over the apartments this year. I was lying out on the sidewalk with a pillow.
Apparently, Anne, the shower is predominately seen in the Northern Hemisphere; lucky you…! 🙂
Oh shit! I mean feces! I mean I forgot half the world! 😥
Hellloooooo up there… 😉
Congratulations, and thank you – a beautiful way to start a new day… I am very happy and honored… 🙂
You are very welcome… Your blog is wonderful…! xoxoxo 🙂
Thank you so much! And BIG congrats to you!!!! 🙂 x
Thank You; and to you too….! 🙂 xoxoxo
Thank you Carolyn. You certainly deserve it. And thanks so much for the nomination. I appreciate it.
Very pleased you like it, David… I really appreciate your blog; it’s full of such fun, and a little seriousness when needed…! (wink, wink) 😉

Oh, sweet Dolly… you are one heck of a lovely girl…. 🙂

Thank You J.D. My pleasure… 🙂
Best regards from Belgium,
Eric, you should be included in this, too… My apologies..!
Please accept a ‘Star’ from me… I’d be very honoured..! 🙂
With pleasure, dear Carolyn,
Just tell me, for Free Tag Zone, Voyage en éphémère or Graffs en Capitales?
(our three different blogs, as you know)
Eric, I believe a star for each of your blogs is in order….! 🙂
Great, thank you very much!
(btw, did you see the specific site about the amazing murals of winnipeg? … in fact it’s the fourth of the FTZ network …)
Is that Resa’s domain, Eric?
Resa is our Chief of project (Project Manager) for that international blog of the FTZ Network …
Yes, Eric, I’m following Resa’s work with great joy… The murals of Winnipeg and Resa’s photography is amazing…! Make sure you take a star for that domain, too…. 🙂
Yes, i will do!
Thanks so much …
Resa will be very happy with that Star!
Resa received the “Great Photographer Tribute Award” from Free Tag Zone Board few weeks ago for all her work and photographies of Winnipeg’s Murals.
Maybe you could add all 4 specific links into your list?
Delighted to….! 🙂
What a lovely job you did with this post! You are the best! Deserving of every star. Thank you for giving one back to me. 🙂 (somehow along the way you thought my name was Susan. It’s a lovely name, but it’s not mine. I’m a Kathy 🙂 )
It’s my pleasure, Susan…. errrrr Kathy…!
I wonder how I managed to do that…!?! I am so sorry, Kathy…! 🙂
Your blogging is amazing… I am definitely learning.. slowly, however I’m learning..!
Thank you so much, I’m honored!
I’m delighted…! Have fun with it..! 🙂
Congratulations to you, carolyn! And thank you so much for nominating me! I will post on this, but it will take some time 🙂
Thank You so much…. Don’t be concerned about posting; we won’t be going away..! 😉
Add Very Inspiring Blog award to your growing list of accolades, as i just nominated you. Keep on going.
Thank You so much….. I’m delighted…!
Thank You….! 🙂
Congratulations and thank you so much!!
You are very welcome…! I’m looking forward to a few excerpts of that book..! 😉
No pressure though….!
Thanks again my dear, you are always so sweet!!!
As are you…! Another thing that you are is ‘consistent’.. a wonderful quality to possess… 🙂
Well Carolyn you never cease to amaze me. A six star blog !! And thanks for your kind words and mentioning me. By the way I am still waiting 😉 Hugs Ralph x
You are very welcome, Ralph; I adore you… (along with an entire brigade of women world wide…) 🙂 xoxoxo
You are so kind Carolyn 😀
You are a STAR!
Thank you for mine, and thank you for thinking of me. I did receive a star from Jueseppi and I have yet to respond..I shall – together! Thank you again.
The joy of receiving is lessened by ‘guilt’…. so stop feeling guilty and enjoy…! 🙂
You’re the BEST, Carolyn!
Thank You, my dear Hook.. 🙂
You are a joy and a dear….!
thanks a million times my dear friend.
Thank You, Sharmishtha… The joy of giving is indeed wonderful… 🙂
Awww thanks so much. 🙂
You are so welcome, Rebecca… 🙂
I’m not often inspired to comment on your blog (I don’t seem to have anything to offer) however, I always read it…!
Aww thanks love. Comments are difficult to think of. You’re such a sweetheart. ((Hugs))
Carolyn, it is a pleasure to receive a star .Respect and greeting.Jalal
And to you, Jalal… I love your blog.. 🙂
Thank you dear Carolyn!
I guess I’m saving up for another award event! xo
I guess..! 🙂
There’ll be swishes and swirls and graciousness and love all wrapped up with a bow..!
It’s fun doing award Posts, and designing gowns is even more fun. 😉 xoxo
Carolyn, because the award is to WRMMW, I should do something from there. I’ll let you know after I discuss it with Eric. xo
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
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!
I can’t wait…! Well, yes I can…. Better to give us some enjoyment gradually… let us savour them over time…. hahah… Love you, my dear Resa… xoxoxo
How lovely!! 🙂 Thank you! *hugs* And congratulations to you– you’re doing a marvelous job here! 😀
Why, Thank You Kindly… That’s lovely of you to say… 🙂
Congrats, Carolyn:) That’s yet another feather in your cap:) and thank you for the nomination:)

It’s now almost noon here in Australia… It is summer; the day is warm (not hot) and there is a wonderful breeze blowing…. It couldn’t be nicer…! 🙂
