May Is National Photograph Month

I know I’m four days late in finding this out, but better late than never, right?  May is (according to this website) National Photograph Month.  Since I’m feeling a little bereft now that the A to Z Challenge is over this gave me an idea for a May theme:

I am going to (try) to post a photo daily.  I will do my best to keep them random and interesting.  Since I’m late getting started and finding out, here are four, all relating to other May events, for today:

May is National Hamburger Month:  These are from my birthday cookout.

May is also National Salad Month (maybe to help counteract the hamburgers?)  
Here’s the recipe for this Spicy Summer Salad
 2 medium cucumbers, peeled and chopped
1 medium tomato, seeded and chopped
½ medium onion, chopped
3 green onions, chopped
1/8 tsp Horseradish
1/3 cup Miracle Whip
½ tsp Paprika
1/8 tsp Ground Red Cayenne Pepper
1/8 tsp pepper
¼ tsp salt
Combine all ingredients, mixing well.  Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving. 

May is also Older Americans Month, so here’s a picture of my grandparents from my wedding; they were the last ones standing/dancing for the longest married dance; 58 years at the time.

May is also Foster Care Month, so here’s an updated picture of our foster cat Marta.  You can read more about her here.  I am very happy to say she has gained two ounces since she has been with us!


  1. Thanks for sharing, Danielle. Maybe I'll actually be inspired to take some pictures this month. :)

  2. May is just full of stuff! You have a May birthday too? :) I wish I had known about it being national photograph month. Maybe next year.
