Memorial Day Pictures

I took these pictures in our National Military Park yesterday commemorating Memorial Day!  Volunteers and park staff placed 18,000 flags on the military graves as part of the Memorial Day activities. Marian also took some pictures in the military park.  We try every year to make a special trip to the park to pay our respects to all the soldiers who have laid down their lives so that we may have freedom in our country!  God Bless our soldiers who have gone to their resting place and for all the ones that are serving and those who have served our country.  We thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Today's Painting

Tomb Of The Unknown Soldier

In Arlington Cemetery near the east portico of the Amphitheater, it commemorates the dead of both World Wars, the Korean and Vietnam Wars. Bodies of unknown Americans from each of these conflicts rest here. A soldier of the First Battle Group, Third Infantry, guards the tomb day and night.

Two New Deer Paintings

This painting has been sold to my barber's daughter, Melissa, to give to him for Father's Day!

I finished this painting yesterday.  I let Marian put the birds in for me!

My Granddaughter, Eilley!

Eilley is already posing for pictures!  We can't wait to get out to Santa Fe, NM, to see our new granddaughter and great grandson.  Marian and I are looking forward to visiting with family and catching up.  It has been over 3 years since we made the trip out west.

My Knife Maker, Billy Foster

Yesterday afternoon, Marian and I were invited over to visit Billy Foster and his wife, Peggy's for coffee.  We really had a nice time and while there Marian took some pictures.  Billy is a great craftsman of knives.  He will be in the upcoming Gun and Knife Show in Jackson at the Trade Mart Center on May 14 and 15.  He also sales his knives at the flea markets here in town.  The next flea market will be the first weekend in October around the New and Old Court House Museum.    

I'm standing by Billy's pride and joy, his truck!
