Teddy Bear

When i listen to this i always think of my Son who also had dreams .. Some came true for him and others were just dreams of being normal like other children. But no matter what life dealt him he always found a reason to smile and make others smile. When he left on his 17th birthday his only wish was we give the love we had for him to those in need of love.. Knowing we would never judge anything or anyone by their outer cover.…

RIP Brothers and Sisters...

The Wall

A little history most people will never know.

Interesting Veterans Statistics off the Vietnam Memorial Wall

There are 58,267 names now listed on that polished black wall, including those added in 2010.

The names are arranged in the order in which they were taken from us by date and within each date the names are alphabetized. It is hard to believe it is 36 years since the last casualties.

The first known casualty was Richard B. Fitzgibbon, of North…

Dogs at Risk from California Flu Pandemic

Dogs at Risk from California Flu Pandemic That Has Killed 127 Humans

The influenza Type A subtype H3N2 virus, which is responsible for 97 percent of the 127 California clinically-confirmed flu deaths for the 2017-2018 flu season that began on Nov. 1, has been confirmed as a “cross-species virus.” The flu variant is believed to have originated in pigs in 2009, then spread to humans in 2011, and to dogs in 2015.

For the first seven years of H3N2 influenza in humans, there was…

Life is in the Air

James Browne gave me permission to use his  painting

He paints many pictures that  bring smiles to many faces

In his paintings  people find many things like the world of make believe

A world seen usually through the eyes of a child

Or the eyes a older generation that  still believes in…

THANK YOU FOR MY ANGEL

Do i believe in Angel's

Yes i really do

They are those that made me who i am today

But are no longer here and walking beside me

Teaching me the simplest things in life are the best

They are the Friends who are always ready with kind words and a smile

They are the blood and chosen Family that believe in all things being possible even in the toughest of times

So many earth bound Angels have walked with me

Through abuse

Held my hand when i was…

She Did but Did Not Die

Lamp lighters were the signal for all children to be in their homes.  She lived a frugal life with never a promise of something better... Until  the war broke out in her Country and…

Another true American hero! Great military career story.

A National Treasure!

Happy 99th Birthday, John Beard. John Beard and Gwen, his wife of 71 years, live in Fort Walton Beach FL. John is very active in our small group of pilots who meet at a little grass airstrip in Niceville, Florida. He makes most of our monthly meetings as well as a fair amount of our Friday afternoon “burger burns,” where we eat hamburgers, drink beer, and listen to war stories. For this article, I interviewed John in his apartment in Fort Walton Beach, on 19…
