Happy 4th of July!

As we celebrate our countries birthday, I hope you take a moment and remember those that have given their lives for our freedom.  A few months ago DD and I watched as a funeral procession went by with a fallen local hero.  He was only 19, younger than DS and just a baby.  His brother was in DD's class so this sort of touched home.  We watched the fire truck with the flag hanging from the ladder, the motorcycles that escorted the family and most of all we cried, well I did!  These are just babies we are sending over to secure our freedom.  Babies.   

Have a great 4th!  We are off to the Sierra's, hopefully to catch a bunch of fish!  I will post pics later.

In memory!

Here is a pic of my grandfather, Andrew M. Strang, today July 3 would have been his 112 birthday!
He was in the navy during WWI and I just love this pic of him.  Glad DH got to know him, wished my kids would have but he passed away in 1981.

This is my Dad John T. Phillips.  He was in the Air Force in the 50's.  This is my Mom's favorite pic of him.  He passed just last year.
Love the old pics, but miss the people!  I know they are watching down on us everyday.

See you soon,
