I'm back from the Fire Flies Doll Convention in Orlando and ready for another Pink Saturday. I'm playing catch up and hope to have time to visit some of your blogs this weekend. I've missed you!

While in Orlando I tried to find some pink for you. The city buses are very colorful and I managed to find a couple of pink ones.

And I saw some pretty planters outside a restaurant at Downtown Disney. There's a little pink in there.

And I found this chair outside Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville Restaurant at Universal City Walk.

And bare with me here...I know there isn't any pink in this picture. The reason we went out to Universal City Walk was to see Jimmy Buffet's HU-16 aircraft. I've been wanting to get there for a few years. Why? When my husband was in the Navy we lived in Sicily and the Navy used an HU-16 aircraft for their Medivac flights.

I flew on a plane like this a number of times and loved it. Then many years later I developed a fear of flying and avoided flying for a long time. I kept thinking back to those Navy days and the little plane that I was never afraid to fly on. Just goes to show you that there's no rhyme or reason to phobias. I'm long over my fear of flying, but wanted to see an HU-16 again. YIKES...I had forgotten how small it was! This is a plane that can even land on water. I'd love to be able to fly on one again. And for fear of flying help I recommend SOAR. He understands the psychology behind fear of flying better than anyone else.

Now back to more pink. While at the Fire Flies Convention I managed to snap pictures of some Vogue Ginny Dolls with pink flowers during one of the programs.

Well, that's it for this week's Pink Saturday. I'm sure I could have found more pink in Orlando, but usually I was too busy having fun to think about taking pictures!

For information on Pink Saturday and a list of this week's participants be sure and visit Beverly's blog by clicking on the Pink Saturday logo on my sidebar. Thank you Beverly for organizing this weekly event for us.


  1. All that pretty pink. Loved seeing all of your Florida pictures in your album, Betty. Those first two pictures in your post look colorized, they're so pretty.

  2. Saturday mornings are mine. I spend them traveling the web, hopping from page to page visiting some of the most lovely blogs loaded with pink all thanks to Beverly and her great idea.

    Thanks so much for sharing your pink this week and for making my morning just a little bit brighter. Wishing you a special weekend filled with fun and family.

  3. Hi Betty, Thank you so much for your warm welcome. I enjoyed my visit to your blog. Love the pink buses! Thank you so much for sharing. Happy Pink Saturday!


  4. Hi Betty - That's some great pink today. I love the painted chair! Fear of flying makes more sense than my fear of FROGS! I don't understand it until I liken it to me having to hold a frog which sends me into a panic mode! I guess that's why they made cars, huh?
    I have a heck of a time on the PS blog visits, too. Mr. Linky lets you go back and forth easily but the link on the list doesn't let you return as easily. I usually start with the comments in my blog or someone with a lot of comments
    and it sort of works that way.

    And didn't we just go nuts with the swine flu things here in Texas? Never let it be said we didn't pay attention!! Have a great day. :)Nancy

  5. Very nice! You've been busy snapping great scenes. I like the pink bus too. Thanks for sharing! :)

    Happy Pinkness! :)

  6. Great series of pink shots - I love that bright colorful chair! Thanks for stopping by to welcome me to Pink Saturday! :-)

  7. What a great trip you must have had. I also have trouble going from blog to blog and i wonder if anyone is able to see all the Pink Saturday posts. Happy Day! Meg

  8. You did very well to conquor your fear of flying. Well done, you! Love that pink bus - what a colour!

    Happy Pink Saturday.

  9. Looks like you had a fun time. All the pink things are great. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Hope you had a great Pink Saturday.
