What did I discover for this week's Friday's Find?
Something pretty and yummy!
M&M's are one of my favorite candies. While looking for Easter pastel colored M&M's at the grocery store, I found these. You'll never guess that flavor they are, that is unless you've already found and tried them. I'm sure these make the Easter Bunny very happy since they're CARROT CAKE! I don't like a lot of flavors that have been introduced in M&M's, but I do like this one! I'll add it to my favorites list; right up there with regular, peanut, almond, and raspberry.
Nancy who hosts Random 5 Friday has taken a break this week, but I decided to keep up the practice and post my five random facts.
The wind never seems to quit blowing. I don't remember it ever being this windy all the time. It's been next to impossible to photography anything in nature unless it's a rock or a mushroom!
Speaking of mushrooms, which I love to photograph, I spotted the first ones of the season yesterday; down in the pasture where it's been quite damp from all the rain. I think they have the most fascinating textures.
I finally discovered the name of these ornamental cast iron shutter holders...shutter dogs. Hmmm...wonder where that name came from. They're also called a shutter catch which makes more sense, but I like the name shutter dog. I've seen some really unique ones on historical homes.
Seventy years ago, April 3, 1944, the USS Razorback was commissioned into the U.S. Fleet. Razorback would go on to complete five war patrols in the western Pacific and earn five Battle Stars for her service. Her sail (yes, submarines have a sail, but it's metal, not cloth) will be painted yellow this month as a promotion for the upcoming Beatles photography exhibition entitled The British Invasion Fifty Years Later.
This British-styled telephone booth stocked with over 100 books is on the courthouse square in El Dorado, Arkansas. It's open 24 hours a day and you don't even have to wait for the librarian to check out your books. The only requirement is if you take a book you must leave a book.
