Vines use holdfasts to climb concrete.
These beverage cans hide a playful side. Literally.
And here’s the playful side.
I wanted to Bai a Coke alternative to go with pizza. While nothing compares to Coke as a pizza bev, these antioxidant infusions fit the bill, Bai and large. They’re a fizzy, flavorful counterpoint to the crisp crust-soft cheese magic of pizza.
Sweetened with erythritol and stevia leaf extract, Bai Bubbles are 5 cals a can, if you’re counting. Each has as much caffeine (45mg) as a cup of black tea. Their colors and flavors come from fruit and vegetable extracts, so they’re clean and look gorgeous in the glass. Cheers!
Thanks for reading! Until next time, good-Bai!
A white-winged dove built a nest in my balcony. It took about two weeks for the eggs to hatch and two more for the babies to fledge.
June 28th – I stepped out for better cell reception to this!
What bird is this, I wondered …
I came home drenched from a sudden downpour to a sight that tugged at my heart.
Why this bird chose a fourth-floor balcony grate to have babies beats me.
See how the story ends! Check out the full album of photos taken June 28th to July 28th.
Note: All close-ups are crops of longer shots (to give the birdies their space).
When life gives you lemons, eat tacos.
But not just any tacos. Head to La Nueva Fresh & Hot on Webb Chapel Road in Dallas. While you wait for your tacos, watch the tortilla machine crank out a never-ending supply of those super-soft carriers of all manner of fillings, those foldable wonders that feed the soul.
I eyed these for next time: nopales (cactus) and Mexican papas!
Take home tubs of fresh red or green salsa and cactus salad from the refrigerator case. And a stack of tortillas, of course.
La Nueva Fresh & Hot has a few tables and chairs if you want to eat in. I’m not a bit surprised it has 4.5 stars on Yelp. I give it five.
So laugh off the lemons and tuck in, my friend.
Wordplay makes life more fun. Look at the puns that showed up in different (if unlikely) places.
1. At the grocery store
2. At a concert
I’ve been to two Jazz Becuzz concerts in the last couple months. The first featured five Dallas singers (Carolyn Lee Jones, Breggett Rideau, Jennifer Martin, Mahogany Miller and Andrea Wallace, with Larry Davis (piano), Buddy Mohmed (bass) and Jaelun Washinton (drums). What a dazzling array of singing talent and top-notch accompanists. The second featured The Brehms — delightful musicians with a great sense of humor!
So, why do you like music? Ya know … Jazz Becuzz.
3. In a cookbook
A pun in a book of vegetarian recipes? Miso happy that me can’t stop crying. By the way, Nina Olsson authors Nourish Atelier.
That’s three puns. Is there a fourth, you ask?
Well … it isn’t original, but here goes: May the 4th be with you. Happy Star Wars Day!
Happy Earth Day! White Rock Lake is home to flora and fauna that boost the happy.
The coot’s white bill and dark feathers and its bobbing motions make it Chaplinesque.
The Filter Building sits on the southwest bank of White Rock Lake.
Glad they left the name and the very cool sign untouched.
The white structure is a boat garage.
I took these pictures one misty morning last month. Here’s a sunny day post on White Rock Lake from four years ago.
Spring ahead with your dreams, my friend, for spring is ahead.
A favorite color (purple) and one of my favorite flowers (tulips) kiss in this planting at Northpark Mall. I chanced upon it while waiting to join a friend for dinner yesterday. Joy!
