Cap

A veteran, according to the dictionary, is a person that has served in the armed forces.  Veterans that have had direct exposure to acts of military conflict are often called war veterans. I am married to a veteran.  I have family and friends that are either veterans or war veterans.  On this day and every…

Skull Cap

A 1.8 million year old skull was found in Dmanisi, Georgia and I am once again in awe. I tend to wonder about the people that came before me and those that will follow when I’m gone.  I think about it a lot, always have. I look at old photographs and feel a connection to people.…

Sunshine Yellow Pants

It appears that lately my blog has been a bit melancholy.  Breast Cancer, 9/11 and heartbreak while important and relevant when taken all at once can be…sad. So, I feel the need for a little sunshine. Katlyn came home from high school yesterday inspired.  I know those two things seem mutually exclusive, but she was…

Hospital Gown

When I was young I loved Cracker Jacks.  There was a store just down the hill from my house that used to sell the small boxes. The carmely corn was yummy, but I bought Cracker Jacks for the surprise. Wrapped in red and white striped paper with the  sailor guy on it, I loved the…
