All A-Glow

Today's Wonder of the World is...Things That Glow!

Sorry to disappoint you if you read the title and were hoping I'd feature the Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling (GLOW.) The ladies above are indeed gorgeous, but they probably don't wrestle. Or who knows...they might! I chose the photo for the glow in the dark necklaces they're sporting. That, and their glowing smiles.

Light sticks are fun, but they're not the only way to have a glowing good time.
Plenty of things glow. Even natural things.
Like pregnant women!

Southern women glow too, when under stress. Or in hot, humid conditions.

They don't sweat. That would be vulgar.

Good ole fireflies glow

when out on the town, searching for a mate.
(I wonder if they think that jar is a nightclub.)

And so does their cousin Glow worm.

No, not that one!
This one.

But you know, glowing isn't just restricted to insects and perspiring, hormone powered women. Guess what? I found some other freaky glow-in-the -dark things to share with you. And they even have Halloween names!

How about a Ghost Pipe Fungus!

And the Jack o'Lantern Mushroom!

Maybe you ought to pick one of those mushrooms and use it as a lantern on Halloween!

Or you could just hang out with this bunch.

If so, I suggest you drive. They look lit to me.

Have a Wonderful Tuesday, y'all! Tune in tomorrow when I hop on Angela Nickerson's Party Bandwagon! (I tell you, I'm just a party animal lately!) It's going to be a blast! There will be plenty of bloggy doorbells to ring, and Angela's got some great goody bags to give away!

But until then, just to amuse you--and because I'm in a weird mood--enjoy a visit with these GLOW-ing ladies!

Love, Becky

Hee hee...those glow "shtick" costume partiers looks funny. You're right, they are lit! I've never seen a photo of ghost pipe fungus before and I didn't know it was a fungus, learn somethin' new everday! It's always fun when that something new is from one of your posts. I'm lookig forward to Angela's Blogapalooza tomorrow! It promises to be way fun. I didn't know you were doing it too, cool! :) "See ya" tomorrow at the Blogapalooza! :)

I used to watch the GLOW Girls... you know Jackie Stallone was their coach?
BTW, anyone would glow if they were wearing draperies. Take care. Susan

I love ghost pipes or Indian pipe is what I have always called them…
Surrounding my childhood home were woods that had a large patch of these magical pipes …my dad use to tell me a wonderful story of how Indian pipes grew where
an Indian princess once lived….I even found some arrows heads there once, which I found out years later my dad placed there for me to find, ghost pipes always bring a smile to my face …


Ps Glow girls are new to me...

You've really expanded my understanding of GLOWING today. Wow.

I love fireflies. I wish we had them on the west coast.

Rosemary said...

Love things that glow. I got glow in the dark spider webs this year. I am putting them up on Halloween.
My daughter had a glow worm. So cute!!
Have a glowing day!!

Kat said...

I haven't seen any fireflies in a long time. I used to love catching them as a kid. :)

Lightening bugs are my favorite things that glow. We have them in our back yard all summer and into the fall. There are not as many as there used to be because of all the pesticides.

I love all those deep sea creatures they have been discovering lately that glow in the dark.

May Vanderbilt said...

Wow. I've never heard of GLOW so I'm guessing that would be before my time. We're not so far apart in age but this may be just on the dividing line.

However I do love lightning bugs. Sigh. I miss the South.

I just love that jar of fireflies -- so magical!

Thank you so much for the sweet comment on my blog -- I always love it when you stop by.
