Perky Award from Shydub

I got this "Perky Award" from Shydub of "My Solitude and Serenity" who has a very preky blog herself. Thank you Shydub for this very Perky award . I appreciate the thought.

For those of you who don't know (haha) the webster dictionary says PERKY means briskly; self-assured; jaunty; cheerful.

I now pass this award on to:

Mama Flo's Place
Super Mommy To The Rescue
A Simple Life



Found this strange creature perched on the side of the house. I was standing on the porch looking up at it. It looked like it was getting ready to pounce on me. This is actually a Moth called a Spotted Apatelodes. My tongue doesn't work that way so I'll just call it a Dragon Moth!
