I couldn't take my eyed off the back drop of tall pine trees by the woods, and the moon radiating above....Breathtaking!!!

It's going to be really hot & humid today, with a high of 87 degrees. Storms moving in this afternoon, some possibly severe tonight.

I need to study today & walk Har before it gets too nasty.

Hope you all have a beautiful day!! Stay cool!!!

((Hugs))

Stay cool, safe and MERRY!!!

I agree breaks seem to go alot faster than working hours I'm doing ok thanks for asking Meceka. Awwww Palmer waking you up is much nicer than alarm clock though! Hope you day is a good one!

It is raining here in northern California; it is really like fall. I love it! I have on my jacket because it is a little cool to me. I am not feeling great, so I am going to go lie down and take a nap. I have a stopped up ear, too. TTYL

Good morning everyone,

I've been away for about a week (I flew off to San Antonio, Texas) to go see my son graduate from the Air Force bootcamp... Well, he did it, YEA....and he's now an Airman in the US Airforce.

After they graduated, they have to all stand still untill someone from their family "taps them out", (places a hand on them and then they can move...) Mom was the one to do so and I captured the moment on film, by reaching over top of other people to take the picture and it turned out perfectly. He was all teared up to see us, during the course of the day both him and I were able to walk along sharing with each other both of our experiences from going to bootcamp in the military.

It was wonderful to see him again and we were able to spend 3 days with him while we were there on base. We got to watch them drill, visit his barracks, see what he did, how he did things and meet other families and Airmen; it was a wonderful experience. Today he will fly home to spend time with us before he checks into his base; mom, grandmom and my daughter are picking him up at the airport right about now....

Me, I'm back at work and glad that for awhile everyone is back home (including myself); "There's no place like home, There's no place like home.....)!

Have a good day!

I'm very grateful for your son's service to our country! He's a hero, and so are all of you as I know soldiers' families also make sacrifices for our freedom. Your son, and you all, are awesome!
