FRAME3 These clouds and sky gave us a breather from the hot weather in Lancaster. 

I enjoy reading  Native American Indian tales and exploring different websites related to them. Ok one more story a little more contemporary (Learn something new everyday) LOL

Committed  and a few final photos. Hope everyone has a great weekend.

I like Native American tales too, Joe. A lot of wisdom and humor . . . and OLD!
Thanks for being a constant in my blogger world. <3

I get lots of sky pictures from my back yard too! I see that you like Native American tales. My blog post today is about the Wooden Nickel Buffalo Farm. Be sure and click on the website that I provided for the farm. Look for the link for "tour". I think that tour might interest you, if you are ever in the Edinboro, PA, area.

Great pictures, Joe... We can 'sorta' see the sky from our back deck--but since we have so many large shade trees, it's hard to get a great picture of the sky from there.

Your pictures are great. I especially like your collage --with each picture being separate from the others. Very nice.

I get most of my best sky shots from the deck in our back yard and it's wonderful to have such a great view! I can see you take advantage of yours as well. These are really superb skies and such a wonderful variety! Love your collage, too! Have a great weekend, Joe!

The old story is great. This one especially gives me a little bit of insight into some books I read, called Wheel Of Time, that incorporate a lot of these legends.

That's from your deck? Who needs to travel ;>) the foggy cartoon was really cute! That's kind of my level of understanding weather.
