Hello!

I've been unable to post to blogspot - I just get stuck with the hour glass every time I try to access my blog. So, I am using a different computer and went in and removed the background image hoping that would help. I will try to get on my two computers at home tonight and see if that helps. In the mean time....hello!

Thank You Veterans

I recently visited the National Cemetery near Bushnell FL. On special days, such as Veteran's Day, they line the drive with donated casket flags. I am considering driving up there again today (about an hour north via interstate) to donate my dad's flag. I like the symmetry of it flying at the cemetery where my father-in-law is buried.




It wouldn't be Veteran's day without some photos of my two favorite vets. The first photo is hubby Jerry receiving a medal in VietNam. The second photo is my Dad in his army uniform - he served in Korea during that war.
Thank you to all veteran's, current or past, wheither you served two years or an entire career, wheither you came home safely or paid the ultimate price. Many, many of us appreciate your service to keep us al safe. Bless you.

Fabulous Cupcakes

I always joke that the only thing I've ever won is jury duty but I can no longer say that because I won BEAUITFUL cupcakes!







Not only did they look fabulous but I hear that they were tasty as well - red velvet with a cream cheese frosting filling. Aren't they FABULOUS!?!?!?
