Happy New Year

New Year Kite© 2013 Michael Fiveson

A belated Happy New Year to all of you. One day I will write about the joy and discovery I have found from blogging and what your comments and thoughts mean to me. I also marvel at how skilled and creative this blogging community is, and I am continually inspired. Joy, peace, and laughter are my wishes for all of you. Thank you.

(this kite was at least 30 feet long and had a nice sea breeze to keep it aloft)

Thank You Veterans

A belated but heartfelt THANK YOU to all of our brave veterans who left family and the comfort of home to serve our nation, sometimes at great peril.

My wife and I are both veterans and met in the Navy many, many years ago. Not only was I lucky enough to score my life long companion, she is also my best friend and lover. And I have a great sense of pride that comes from having served.

Thank you fellow veterans.
