"C" you Real Soon...

"Y" because we LIKE you!


Do you remember this little ditty?

It would be written in an autograph book?  Or on the back of an envelope, when it was common to write letters on paper and mail them via the postal service.

2 Ys 4 Me!

This was Texting B4 Texting was Invented! ;-)

Oh yes, remember that diddy!!

In fact, my license plate has the letters MMC in it, and I can always remember it because I call it my Micky Mouse Club license plate.

Loved it, and the yellow lily is lovely, some of my lilies are over and some are just starting to bloom.

Beautiful photo — makes me wonder what happened to the daylilies I planted. Probably victims of a very cold, very long winter.
A fun post for the letter Y, however. 2 Ys for me. LOL

Thanks for the memory! I remember the Mickey ditty well. So long ago now. I love the daylily ... you've taken a beautiful photograph. Mine are showing no signs of budding yet. I shall have to visit your blog to enjoy yours.

You made me feel welcome back in the blog world. Thank you! I hope you are having a good summer.

I remember that ditty well. As to texting, nowadays, my English Teacher spouse keeps muttering something about the fall and demise of the English language. :)

I am actually relieved that next week is Z. It went on WAY longer than I anticipated.
Your lily is lovely!

Cute post and pretty lily!

Lisa said...

That is one huge, mammoth-size lily! Huge, but gorgeous.
