When is a tree not a tree?

We were standing in line at a grocery store in the Berkshires recently and saw this sad looking tree in the parking lot sticking out above the cars. The folks in front of us asked if the tree had come down in a recent storm that caused a lot of damage and power outages in the area.

The cashier laughed and said, "it isn't a tree" and suggested they check it out. Of course, I had to check it out myself.

What could look like that and be smack dab in the middle of a busy strip mall parking lot? A drive up ATM!

Here it is Monday again. That and other goofy weekend adventures are behind us as I write.

I like Monday. I liked it as a child when I was in school and never stopped. I have known people who get depressed on Sunday night knowing the week is about to begin again. I always viewed Monday as a clean slate and a new beginning.

These days I work at home and kind of miss going out and the rhythm of the work week. But, I start new projects on Monday and catch up with housework and laundry as well. How many of you like Monday?

Enjoy your day. Enjoy your Monday!

Oh my, what a great idea for an ATM! If only everything in the world were designed with thought and a little whimsy...

I like Monday too, for the same reasons that you do.

I've had a lot to catch up on here. I really like your drawings and the Bridge of Flowers and the surrounding area are so pretty.

I hope you are having a wonderful week!
