It's time for Alphabe-Thursday again and the color is blue.  We went a couple of weeks ago, to a family picnic with hippies family.  It was at our nephews and his partners house.  I decided to take pictures of blue things there.  At first, he didn't think he had much blue until we started investigating.  Here's what I came up with.

Neon Sign

Neon Clock

Time on Stove


Ash tray from inlaws

Stained glass

This was from his paternal grandfather who was in the US Indianapolis ( the ship that delivered the bomb) and was missing in action- his body never found.It's signed by President Truman. 
Three blue things

It was fun taking pictures at someone else's house.  Go on over to Jenny's and see what everyone did for the color blue.  This link should work later on Wednesday night

I love the Blue Moon sign. You found some great blue at your nephew's house! Thanks for stopping by and your sweet comments. Most of the really good shots are DH's. I just play with the camera, he really works it!

I can't believe I'm saying this - I like the neon signs. I never thought of neon as especially pretty until now. Perhaps I never truly looked at it.
