I've been in my own boat sitting out in this water looking at this view. Awesome!-Sandee. This is a Tip of The Hat to Sandee, my Co-Author and blog wizard.

The Blogger's Prayer

Lord help me to learn to spell without spellcheck, manage to visit all that visit me, and post regularly - all in 5 minutes a day, so that I can clean house and take care of my family. Help me to not look at every occurrence in my life as a blog post, and to quit taking pictures of weird things to share as well. Please Lord, help me to stop talking about my blog friends as though they are next door neighbors or someone I have known all of my life. And help me dear Lord, to think of something witty and wise to post tomorrow.

  8. I respect your service to our country. I served a tad as a Reservist and my late husband made me a Nam Vet widow. Ironically, War and Peace share the same historical bookshelf. Some do not recognize this. If only it were as easy as The Beastie Boys Fight For Our Right for (Freedom). Thank you for your service. It needs to be reminded that coming to arms is many times part of the Peace process. Protecting our way of life and our ideals has cost us many lives. Peace to yours this season.

  9. Bluezy,Thank you and your Late Husband (Rest In Eternal Peace,Brother!! Slow Hand Salute!!)
    for your service,You are right sometimes taking up arms is the road to peace,my late Dad and mant of his Generation did just that first against Germany and than after the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor,the fight against Japan.
