-- Six Word Saturday --
We came but you were gone.
We don't know where you went
else we'd go there with you.
A trail of crumbs would show
but birds by the number
do hum a happy song.
How can we ever know
why you have gone or where
you went? We may never.

The whole family has spent many a morning, afternoon, or evening reading and watching any traffice that would go by. I remember when Dad got them new, now they are about 65 years old.

Be Happy -- MidWeek Blues -- Windows scenes along Barcelona streets
I have answered the quiz in a post just below the original.
[large picture] [super size it]
Some of these are blue, I used that for criteria unless I really liked the picture and I thought you might like it also even if it's not blue.
Our son, Tim, was with us. Can you spot him?
He is sitting in the chair at the outdoor restaurant.
Click on any picture for large size.
And now for some street scenes.
We were staying at the Hotel Continental (right) (link)
but would visit it's sister, the Palace Hotel on the left.

What is this thing? -- Ruby (Red) Tuesday -- A quiz
I found it at church. Mrs. Jim was doing some work there and it was sitting on the table.
Since it is new there is an invoice which details brand and everything. Only problem is that the envelope is home and I am away visiting.
Mrs. Jim is here so I asked her. She said, "Scott knows." I told her that I had written on the envelope but I needed to know NOW for the blog, Ruby Tuesday in RED.
So all I can do is to tell you later tonight if you care to come back and look.
If you know or think you know please tell me what in your comment. Thanks.
What is this thing? -- Ruby (Red) Tuesday -- The answer
Our church bought the one in my blog (below) to play along with the percussions. Mrs. Jim said they played this Sunday but she did not know that I would need to have information for the blog.
From the City of Marinette, Wisconsin, Web site, here is their blurb:
Link if the Mini Xequerê video doesn't play for you here
Quite a few of you thought it might be a gourd. That is correct. I do know how you would know the name unless you were familiar with these. I learned a lot about music makers made from gourds.
Most either rattle or are beaten or both, like the Shereke has both sounds. The rattle is a loud rustling of the beads. The one I posted should sell for around $50. Ours could also be a Xequerê from Brazil. Our music minister knows the answer to this question and also where we got it. Probably NOT Cuba.
