One of my passions is CLAY!  The "real" mud and the polymer kind.  Here is a bit of "clay" from YouTube:  (could also be "B," "W," or "D" but is under "C" for Clay, Ceramic and Create) -- These YouTubes are about one of my favorite Clay Artists:  Beatrice Wood ...

But since I don't get my hands into the Mud anymore, one of the things I like to do is Crochet -- this is a fun flower I found at YouTube that isn't too hard to make ...

Down Memory Lane -->

Okay, I don't actually remember this moment captured and shared over at YouTube but ... I do remember Myron Floren from the Lawrence Welk Show.  The memory is of sitting on the gold shag carpet, by my dad's arm chair, watching The Lawrence Welk Show with him. Myron Floren was one of my favorite performers on the show.  This clip is almost as "horrible" as a ride through Disney's "It's a Small World" or listening to a recording of kids' music featuring "The Wheels on the Bus" or ... well, I think you get the idea.  Enjoy, anyhow!  LOL!

Call To Action!
The Call to Action options can be found here -- two can be  answered in the Comments Section here or via the InLinkz section at the end of the post ... I wanted to set the closing date as May 7 but InLinkz would not let  me run a link list for that long ... so the deadline is May 1 ...

BUT ... Before we let InLinkz take over, what is today?  Well, the 4th but what else is it:

Today is ...

WOW!  This is Unique -- today is Square Root Day!  4 4 16!  It'll be a hundred years before you can celebrate this one again!
And it is Vitamin C Day. 
(Yesterday was -- Find a Rainbow Day & Fan Dance Day).
Thanks, once again to brownielocks for this info!

Now for InLinkz to "host" our Calls To Action -- Come play along!  You'll have fun!


  1. I think you do an excellent job without having gone to school. Your work with clay is magnificent and I can tell what you create comes from your heart.
    All the best in the A to Z Blog Challenge.

    1. OOPS! I better go clarify the YouTube is abut one of my favorite Clay Artists -- Isn't her work wonderful, though? What an incredible woman who lived a very interesting life!

  2. My favorite clay artist is Nora Naranjo-Morse, an Amerindian woman whose book I stumbled upon in a used bookstore.
