. It is the VETERAN,
not the preacher,
who has given us freedom of religion.

It is the VETERAN,
not the reporter,
who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the VETERAN,
not the poet,
who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the VETERAN,
not the campus organizer,
who has given us freedom to assemble.

It is the VETERAN,
not the lawyer,
who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is the VETERAN,
not the politician,
Who has given us the right to vote.

It is the VETERAN
who salutes the Flag,

ETERNAL REST GRANT THEM O LORD,

AND LET PERPETUAL LIGHT SHINE UPON THEM.

We can be very proud of our young men and women in the service no matter where they serve.

Hummingbirds & Fuchsias

The new place is pretty keen. We don’t own it, but the people who do are really special. The house itself is special as well. It has a whole plethora of birds. We had a few birds at the other place, but here are many birds – domestic as well as wild – that I can hear throughout the day. A small bird house I brought from the other house had an occupant the day I hung it. It took him longer to find someone to share it with, but he was determined to claim it as his own.

Recently I saw some humming birds. So I have an idea. Rather than hang a humming bird feeder and train them to become dependent on the man-made nectar, I decided that I would plant/hang some fuchsias. This way they would come to something natural and when they were done blooming move on to something else. Perhaps I will figure out something different by then. We have wild fuchsias here as well as buying them. They are red and pink bushes. I think I will find some of those to plant as well.
