  1. I thought the Colonel would be the first to comment! Oo-rah.

  2. I think if you play your cards right, you could finish up as the mascot of the US Marines!

    1. …and wouldn’t that be a lovely thing?!? Hope your week is off to a great start.

  3. Is it wrong that I feel patriotic and slightly flushed at the same time? Nice picture. With respect as always.

    1. No, no…that’s not wrong. That’s RIGHT! It means I did a good job! Glad you stopped by to see me…

  4. Thank you Lynn

    1. My pleasure…as always! Sure hope you had a good weekend. Even though my little out-of-town trip was short, it was lovely. I wish I could just stay in the mountains!

      1. I’ll second that. Trail run all day. Camp fires to cook from. A tent and seeing all God’s handy work. Great idea Lynn

      2. What? Run all day? Oh dear….O.K. you run and I’ll tend camp. Camp needs lots of tending! It will take all the time I had to run. Darn.

        Yes, God’s handiwork…it’s glorious and it comforts me. I always feel such peace out there!

        Happy weekend!

  5. And now everyone knows WHY we do those things … 🙂

    1. Now that made me smile. Thanks for the sunshine!
