184/365 Pie Until I Die

Pie Until I Die
The Bluebonnet Cafe is a "must visit" whenever I visit 
the Texas Hill Country. The pie is awesome...but the grits are divine!!

and for those of you who wondered....
 I did get a few fireworks pictures...

 No room for stabilization(tripod) though(we had a family of five squished on the tiny balcony outside of my hotel room :-) but they did capture the spirit...It was nice to enjoy the fireworks with no worries about any pups
getting spooked.

171/365 Happy Fourth of July

Groot says Happy Independence Day to All his furiends in the USA
(on Earth of course)

For those who don't know, Groot is a character in the Marvel Universe Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy.  He looks like a great big tree in the first movie and sacrifices himself to save his friends....Well, almost sacrifices himself. A twig survives, creating Baby Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy, Volume 2(the most recent  movie)!  

Here is a clip of Baby Groots funnier moments....
