Willy Nilly Friday 5, Sky Watch Friday
And on Saturday, Saturday's Critters and I'd Rather B Birdin'

1. Pickwick Lake (Sky Watch Friday)
Bruton Branch, Tennessee, USA, May 11, 2018
Last Friday was such a beautiful day! We crossed the Tennessee River at Pickwick Dam, and drove around to Bruton Branch Recreation Area on the north shore of Pickwick Lake. There are campsites, a boat ramp, picnic tables, and a children's playground. And best of all on these hot, humid days - air conditioning in the restrooms!

We were intrigued to see shells mixed in with the gravel placed along the lake shore to help prevent erosion...

...and entertained by several Eastern Kingbirds searching the picnic grounds for food.

2. Camaros
Tupelo, Mississippi, USA, May 4, 2018
Two more photos from the Blue Suede Cruise Car Show: a 1967 Chevrolet Camaro...

...and a 1976 Chevrolet Camaro.

3. Good Food: Free Pie Wednesday!
Tupelo, Mississippi, USA, April 25, 2018
The Wednesday Special at O'Charley's Restaurants is buy a meal, get a slice of pie free!
My husband likes their caramel pie, and I usually get apple. It is not a large slice of pie,
but hey, it's free!

O'Charley's got their start in Nashville, Tennessee, in 1971. Now there are over 200 restaurants in 17 states.

4. Luna Moth (Saturday's Critters)
Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, May 8, 2018
Luna Moths, Actias luna, are common across the eastern half of the United States. They are night-flying and are attracted to bright lights. I found this one on my kitchen window screen early one morning.

5. Canada Goose Family (I'd Rather B Birdin')
Pickwick, Tennessee, USA, May 7, 2018
You can thank my husband for spotting this Canada Goose family half-hidden in the grasses growing at the edge of Pickwick Lake.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
