Throwback Thursday: In the clouds

Remember lazy summer days when you’d toss a blanket on the grass, flop down on your back and look into the sky to see what shapes you could see there? For this Throwback Thursday, we slip back to that time (using a few modern clouds).

It isn’t all a trip to Cloudland. There are all kinds of useful reasons, too, to look up. Farmers use clouds to foretell weather, with different clouds indicating different things (puffy white ones in a blue sky are good). Pilots using visual flight rules need to know about the location, type and density of clouds. Members of the Cloud Appreciation Society need as many clouds as possible to appreciate. For us today, clouds are all play and no work.

Fish chase!

Wait! That's no cloud! It's the Lake fire burning near Big Bear.

Throwback Thursday: Remember when …

… a big pencil seemed mightier to you than anything else? Holly writing at 5

(That’s me scribbling in the living room at barely 5 years old. Note the nifty ’50s fake-brick wallpaper. Those are Readers Digest Condensed Books on the shelf. I still have the desk!)

What day is it?
