Thank you to our Veterans - past and present

Today, on my way home from work I sat in traffic behind a little blue-grey Neon with a sticker that read

"My daughter is fighting for your Freedom"
I wanted to get out of the car and tell the older gentleman driving the care ahead of me
"Tell her I said Thank you"

But since we were waiting in traffic I thought it was not a good idea.

I am against war, but sadly it is part of life.

So I just wanted to say, "Thank you" to all those men and women, past and present, who have gone and go to war and risk their lives to defend the freedoms and rights of our country and our people.

Not very eloquently pu,t but I think anyone can see what I am trying to say.

30 Day Photo Challenge - Day 30

Technically, these should have been posted last night.. when I took them, on the official last day of my 30 day challenge. Some medical news bummed me. But on the good side, my oldest son was visiting. In the end I was very tired and went to bed. So here are the photos now.
Driving down a dirt road at night. a series of photos with a long exposure time. Trees rushing past.  I like them. Maybe it's just my mood. Either way this is the last post of my 30 day challenge. I failed to post every day I missed 3 in total.... 5 if you count the late posts. Maybe I will try again.

30 Day Photo Challenge - Day 25

Day 25. Close to being done my 30 day Photo Challenge.

I wish that was the case with the construction crews outside my home bright and early evey morning. From early morning till early evening they are digging, scraping, hauling dirt, filling holes, pulling up road and curbs and sidewalks. Stirring up dust and pissing off drivers. I am amazed at how many people get impatient and blast their horns. PEOPLE....there are alternate routes.. take them if you have no patience. Quit pulling out and driving out of turn in spite of the sign that guy in the yellow hard hat and safety orange vest is holding.  It says "STOP"  Maybe I'm stupid but I never thought that STOP was an invitation to muscle your way ahead, putting yourself and other people in danger. I never understood that sort of impatience. I have no patience for impatience.  LOL.

Here is one of the machines working in front of my house... every day.. all day for up to 20 weeks.
