Thank you for Serving, today we honor all of our veterans.

The most persistent sound which reverberates through men's history is the beating of war drums. ~Arthur Koestler, Janus

It is easy to take liberty for granted, when you have never had it taken from you. -Author unknown

There is a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.
Ecclesiastes, Chapter 3:8

What a gorgeous flag!!! The quote in blue is very sad to me. We are not a nation under God and never have been...slavery and the Indians, we love war.

Your comment on my blog about the woman holding a pumpkin..at first I could not figure it out, then it dawned on me. This is not a woman, it is the Pumpkin Man!!! He is maybe 40 or so and lives with his old father, who has even longer hair. They both look like those guys on Duck Dynasty, I kid you not!! I didn't say anything about them because he was nice to me, so I left that part out.
