Me and the critters celebrate Memorial Day







































































































































































Memorial Day Remembrance



Though time goes by some things are always remembered....It was a long time ago and I still remember the turbulent time when Vietnam was the focal point of a generation...as I mentioned last year, Gerald Bourdeau was the first person I knew who was killed in Vietnam in November, 1966, he was twenty....

Asheville in May









A beautiful day here in Asheville. We drove to the downtown area and had lunch in a small outdoor cafe across the street from a small downtown park. This is a lovely city. The building is St. Lawrence Basilica. The cardboard box is at the back of our hotel. I suspect some employees are feeding a cat. We did see a black and white kitty beside the box this morning.

Granddaughter's HS graduation






My granddaughter (Hunter) in AR graduated HS today. I am very proud of her. She graduated summa cum laude and will be the distinguished freshman (with full scholarship) in the university she is attending in the fall. I am attaching some pictures of the event today. Her parents, my son (Steve) and DIL (Nancy) held a party for her this afternoon at a cabin owned by DIL's parents out in the country. It was a lovely event. There are 2 pics of graduate, and one pic of GD's sister, my other GD (Sloan). One pic is my son and another pic is his dad (Bob) and his wife (Jane).

We wanna go on vacation!



Our swamp turtle Jan left for vacation today but we insist that she take us with her. We'll call it a vaca-o-blog. So Jan, when you see or do anything interesting, please share it with the rest of us turtles who are left behind, sitting on the log. Don't forget, one of my favorite things to do on vacation is to eat. If you have a particularly interesting meal, snag a pic. I'll have my fork and knife ready.


Have a great vacation!


The Turtle Gang.

Springtime in the high desert






To contrast with the lovely flora of the southeast, I am posting, for our pleasure, some spring flowers in the southwest. These are all flowers I have been enjoying on my early morning walk.
