Blue Monday -Blue Costumes

Welcome! It's Blue Monday! For instructions, just click here.

Many people place the Blue Monday button on the top of their post so that visitors can easily spot it. Another Blue Monday button can be placed on the sidebar of your blog. Some choose to place the link within the Blue Jay button.

Leave a comment for me; I guarantee that I'll visit and leave one for you. Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links and leaving comments.

Since today is Halloween, I thought some Blue costumes might be in order.

Tell me what you think. How about a peacock?

Does anyone want to be a super hero? How about Batman?


How about a Blue fairy princess?

Aren't these Blue M&Ms cute?

Here's Blue Man Group.

Might you choose to dress as a Blue crayon?

"I yam what I yam," states Popeye in his Blue pants.

BONUS: My grandson, Pierce, sent me this joke:

During a Ping-Pong game, one of the contestants accidentally swallowed the ball. The ambulance came and sped him to the hospital, where he was quickly rushed into the operating room.

When he recovered after the operation, he noticed a dozen scars all over his body, some on his chest, some on his stomach.

"Why did you cut me in so many places?' he asked the doctor.

"That's the way the ball bounces," answered the surgeon.

Happy Blue Monday!

Blue Monday - Isn't it too soon for Christmas?

Welcome! It's Blue Monday!

I sure hope everyone understands that this is a Monday only meme. In addition, your post must have Blue. It helps if you tell us about your Blue.

For complete instructions, just click here.

Be sure to visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links and wishing them a Happy Blue Monday!

I was in an Old Time Pottery store a couple of weeks ago and noticed that their shelves are loaded with Christmas stuff! Of course, I particularly noticed the Blue items and started snap, snapping away.

Here's a cute door mat.

Blue snow globes

Look at these Blue lighted houses.

There were many more Blue Christmas items to see, but a nice man asked me not to take pictures, so I stopped shooting. I suppose he thought I was a SPY(!) or something.

At the time, I hadn't even bought my Halloween candy! Isn't it too soon for Christmas?

Blue Monday - Stalked by a Blue Gorilla!

Welcome! It's Blue Monday!

Almost every Blue Monday, there are a few folks who TRY to link in on Tuesday! In fact, this past week, I had one lady TRY to link in on Wednesday! I sure hope everyone understands that this is a Monday only meme, and in addition, your post must have Blue.

For complete instructions, just click here.

Be sure to visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links and wishing them a Happy Blue Monday!

Look what we saw when driving down the road--an angry, giant, Blue gorilla! He's supposed to be selling window tint, but I suspect most folks would be apprehensive about shopping at THAT store.

Just look at the size of him, and he's reaching out to passing cars with his enormous, Blue arms.

Hmm . . . He looks familiar to me.

I've figured out that this Blue monster is stalking me!
Yep, here's where I spotted him last July. You can click here for that post.

Notice that he changed his sign so that he would be in disguise.

Happy Blue Monday!
You make my day when you leave me a comment.

Blue Monday - Legoland & Columus Day!

Welcome! It's Blue Monday! For instructions, just click here.

Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links and wishing them a Happy Blue Monday!

I have two Blue topics to share today. The first is my grandson and Legoland, Florida. Here's Pierce, on the right, wearing a Blue hat, with his buddy, Ben. They're both Lego-NUTS. Note all the other Blue Lego items in the background.

Legoland opens October 15th; however, these fortunate guys got to go to the preview opening! Need I say they had a blast!

My second Blue is about Columbus Day. A U.S. national holiday since 1937, Columbus Day commemorates the arrival of Christopher Columbus in the New World on October 12, 1492. Please notice all the shades of Blue.


Columbus day is a public holiday in many parts of the United states, but it is not observed in some states. Government offices and schools are generally closed, but businesses may be open. The flag of the United States is displayed on Government buildings. Here's a statue of Columbus. Look at that Blue sky.

There are parades and of course, many businesses have Columbus Day sales. If interested, look here for more information.

Happy Blue Monday!
Please remember to leave me a comment.

Blue Monday - Blue Sign

Welcome! It's Blue Monday! For complete instructions, please click here.

Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links and wishing them a Happy Blue Monday!


I had a touch of "cabin fever," so Johnny and I went out for lunch one day. I remembered to take along my camera in the hope of finding some Blue. This is what we spotted.

I had Johnny make a U-turn so that I could get a better shot.
This is a busy four-lane road, and we did the best that we could.
I had to wait for the traffic to clear so that I could take the shots.
Then, a police car turned the corner, and we had to MOVE.

I have no idea why this Blue mural/sign is there. There are no clues. I spent several
hours calling county offices and working the computer, but no one had any answers.
( I even called the business across the street.)
Ah well . . .

I think it's cute the way the Blue sky so closely matches the Blue sign.

Happy Blue Monday!
