I apologize but Willy Nilly Friday 5 is going to take a break for the month of July. We just bought a new house and are in the process of getting packed and ready to go. We will still be in the same county, only a few minutes down the road but still, lots to do! Have a happy and safe 4th of July!

Our World Tuesday - Raleigh

click on photos to enlarge
Downtown Raleigh

While walking around we stumbled upon this live broadcast about to take place. The newslady looks hard at work ;)

“What’s not so great is that all this technology is destroying our social skills. Not only have we given up on writing letters to each other, we barely even talk to each other. People have become so accustomed to texting that they’re actually startled when the phone rings. It’s like we suddenly all have Batphones. If it rings, there must be danger.

Now we answer, “What happened? Is someone tied up in the old sawmill?”

“No, it’s Becky. I just called to say hi.”

“Well you scared me half to death. You can’t just pick up the phone and try to talk to me like that. Don’t the tips of your fingers work?”
― Ellen DeGeneres, Seriously... I'm Kidding

Monday Murals - Raleigh

click on photos to enlarge
Corner of W. Martin & McDowell . Raleigh . NC

In my extensive Googling quest this morning I have concluded that this is the work of one Taylor White. That's about all I can come up with. I found her website HERE ...she's done quite a bit of stuff in Australia I see...but this cool mural is all stealth like, nothing comes up. I did Google Earth it and you can see the building it is on HERE and that was taken in 2012, no mural...Google Earth is pretty fun to play with. I was able to back track because right up the street on W. Martin is Berkeley Cafe which is a pretty cool little joint we hung out at for a while. Great food too! We had a turkey sandwich with applebutter...I didn't even know those 2 things went together but it was so dang good!

Willy Nilly Friday 5 No. 49

click on photo to enlarge
Greenfield in Botetourt...Just up the trail a bit from the bee sanctuary I posted yesterday. Up on the hill across the way sits a few old slave cabins. I've shown you them before. This is such a pretty area!

Willy Nilly time:

1) Made this yummy Fried Ice Cream for Father's Day. It was so good! We didn't top it with chocolate syrup, honey or whipped cream, just ate it plain and I don't think it could have been any better!

2) Also tried this Cilantro Lime Chicken Fajita Salad for dinner one night last week...also totes delish! A definite keeper and great summer dinner!

3) Photographer Mashes Photos Together For Hilarious Results

4) 10 Dogs Who Think They're People

An amazing old tree in Raleigh, NC

Well there's my 5! Now it's your 5 randoms, link up and visit others! Have fun and have a great weekend!
