Patriot Day ~ iPhone Photo Lesson ~ Liz O'Connor ~ Brian Tucker Sami

Good 48º clear sunny morning. Topped at 100º yesterday. Cooler predicted for today.
Today is Patriot Day,  a reminder of so much sadness and death and yet so much caring and patriotism and selfless help occurring in 2001 on this date. The losses were horrendous and heart breaking.

Please take a few moments of remembrance for those lives that were taken too soon. May they all rest in peace.

This is a very interesting 30 minute video if you have an iPhone and take pictures with it. It will tell you 7 things you did not know. I was thrilled to learn these things....

Special person in my life is having a birthday today, Liz O'Connor aka Lizardbreath! She is my dental hygienist and I will be seeing her soon! Here she is with the dental crew. Liz second from the right.

Yesterday afternoon Brian Tucker and Sami came over. They wanted to search out some fishing poles in the barn.

Tucker also found 2 bowling pins and wanted to know if he could have them. Of course! He LOVES bowling!

I even gave him a bowling trophy I got way back when ....  It was for Cleminson Moms (the kid's grammar school) and my score was 563 for two games. Perfect score would have been 600. Not bad. Sami found a "dipping bird" still new in the box and I told her she could have him...

All I know. Nuff said. Ciao.
