Did I ever mention that yellow is my favorite color? It’s so freakin’ cheerful!!

On another cheerful note, my youngest son locked the girls and me out of the house Sunday afternoon while we were bringing in groceries. It was cold, windy and rainy. I could hear him laughing on the other side of the door while we tried to get him to open it up. It took 10 minutes before he did. It was kind of funny, because it happened just as I was saying, “Gee, (yes I still say gee) I hope Logan doesn’t lock us out of the house; I left my keys inside.” click

Just got done listening to Radar Love on the radio. That is my favorite drumming song, and I hope to learn it some day. It doesn’t sound like it will be that difficult to play, but it does sound like way too much fun and a great workout. Unfortunately, no one has tabbed it out or transcribed it yet. I guess I’ll have to have a go at it myself. I’ll just add that to the “list of things to do…book 2.” ;o)

This is great. I thought about a month ago as I was chomping on some M&Ms that it would be awesome to take photos of the candies. You've captured them perfectly!

I'll take the m&m's please...Lovelt color yellow. I like yellow and white together. It's so pleasing and calming.

I got locked out when my son, 4 at the time, pulled the door shut behind us when we just went outside to get something from the car. I was 8 months pregnant and had to hoist him up through the window which was open luckily. He went and opened the door so all was well.

Weird, have not heard Radar Love on the radio for years and I don't listen to that much radio but I heard it a couple of days ago. Great song for driving to.

Well bad luck about getting locked out of the house. I thought Americans said Gee in situations when us brits woudl say "oh B***** H****". And talking about BH, I'm very envious about your trip to B&H Photo in NY. I have been a there a few times very confused as to who was serving me as they were all wearing the same hat!

Ah children aren't they fun? Gotta love it. So what I want to know, is what are the other candies in the photo besides the m&m's? They look a bit like a candy I loved as a child but can't remember the name too, it was this candy you could get in a roll, or smaller bags with photo images on them... sweet coating and tart inside, but not the brand sweet tarts.... I remember you could taste the food coloring too. OK, rambling, ta!

Bummer about being locked out. I can't imagine myself saying Gee. Haven't heard Radar Love in awhile. Must dig out some Golden Earing! I too love yellow, m&ms and candy.

Love the shot Micki. Normally I don't like yellow, but it works really well here. The texture here is fabulous, as is the sheen on the candies!

Radar Love's a great song. I have it on my MP3 list and it actually popped up the other day while I was reading blogs. I hope you manage to learn the song!

Amazing how much can be inspired in so deceptively simple a shot : the Comments are as entertaining as the image and I now know those non-m&m’s I see are ‘Sprees’ ;-)
