AT THE TRAFFIC LIGHT

Out and about the other day, not long after the 4th of July, we stopped behind this rider while waiting for the light to change.  It took me a second or two but I finally spotted him, the teddy bear between the flags.  Reflexes were pretty good and I had my photo in an instant.  Then the lights changed and rider and teddy bear went on their way, and hubs and I were on our way to meet up with our son for lunch, and then...
while in one of the stores with my two favorite guys, I spotted a patriotic pair of sunglasses.  I have to admit I was tempted but then I already had my own pair in the car.  I borrowed these for a second and made the peace sign and hubs had his cell phone out before I placed them back down again.  I guess I am channeling Winston Church who below can be seen sharing the V for Victory sign back in the day. 

Then Ringo Starr came along and made it into the Peace sign.  


So, happy belated birthday, two days before mine, to Ringo Starr and passing on peace and love like he asked us to, a nice sentiment that I am happy to do.

    1. I didn't see the interview Ginny but came across an article online. When I saw the glasses and the photo that Gregg took, I remembered the old Winnie pose and then came across the article on Ringo Star, it just all fit together and I always love that peace sign :)

  3. Unusual glasses, did the pattern design interfere with your vision?

    1. Thanks Valerie, when I put the glasses on they felt like a regular pair of sunglasses and I had no problem with the vision.

    1. I was very tempted Red but too frugal these days, especially when I had a perfectly good pair in the car. And, you never know, if I lose those ;)
