No, those are not diamonds, but hail. Ick, that definitely does not scream sunbathing in the backyard to me.
What I have really been wanting to write about every time I drive by them are these "things" hanging from the utility lines in one part of town.
I truly do not know what they are for, but they look like chairlifts for squirrels. Bobby and I almost had one of his sons convinced that that was exactly what they were.
Boy: "Why are you taking pictures of the sky?"
Me: "I am not. I am taking pictures of the chairlifts."
Boy: "What? Those are chairlifts?"
Bobby: "Yes, for the squirrels to get back and forth."
Boy: "You mean the chairs actually move?"
We couldn't go any farther than that. We were laughing too hard. Got to love gullible kids :)
