This week’s challenge is all about fresh. The top photo was taken almost fresh out of bed as this butterfly flitted from bloom to bloom. The photo below it represents fresh too, but in a rather dark, macabre and downright “ewwww” kind of way, as nature can be at times. (You may not want to scroll down.)

A former equestrienne*, it’s always a treat to hang around a horse show, even if it’s an outing disguised as work. Here are some shots from this year’s Arkansas state 4-H horse show. Temps hovered around 100 degrees and I left the show covered in horse, dog and dust, but supremely happy.
*Once a horse person, always a horse person, I’m afraid.
One of our favorite pizza joints is undergoing a renovation. We love this place. We could walk in, sit down and not even have to say anything. Rose, Ali and everyone else would just know.
It’s one of at least two stores in this local chain built in an old gas station. Part of the charm of these two restaurants was the quirkiness that came from stuffing a pizza n’ beer eatery into a service station: tables in the service bay with a thin veneer of decor (adeptly seasoned by everything ever cooked there), the funky traffic flow inside and the bathrooms outside.
The other ex-gas station restaurant we frequented was abandoned and a shiny new one built in a somewhat post-modern Italianate concrete box with elaborate landscaping. Inside is the most sound wave-richocheting interior that could be conceived. The food has never been the same.
We’re hoping for a better outcome for this restaurant, but have already learned that at least one of the well-seasoned ovens won’t be making the change over. It was so old, repair parts can’t be found.
This week’s challenge, “nostalgic,” isn’t a hard one, considering 1) celebrated my 50th birthday this week — a natural place to look back on one’s life, and 2) the wonderful take-you-back-to-your-childhood gift my husband found: a box full of candy someone born in 1963 would remember from his or her childhood.
This was quite a collection, including boxes of what used to be candy cigarettes, a bubblegum “Pink Owl” cigar, wax lips, Dots, Turkish Taffy and a bag full of yellow candy-covered bubblegum bits packaged as “gold nuggets.” You can see my dentist smiling already.
