DogDaz Thanks Our Veterans

I am thankful for the people (and animals) that help keep me safe and free. Today we celebrate our War Veterans. Thank you to all who have sacrificed and continue to serve today.

Dedicated on June 10, 2006, the United States War Dogs Memorial, located guarding the gateway to the New Jersey Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial in Holmdel, New Jersey, consists of a bronze statue of a kneeling Vietnam War soldier and his dog, set on a black granite base. The memorial was designed by sculptor Bruce Lindsay, Architectural Division Manager at Johnson Atelier in Mercerville, New Jersey. A graduate of Bucknell University, Lindsay’s studio is adjacent to Grounds for Sculpture, the 22-acre sculpture park on the grounds of the former New Jersey State Fair. The U.S. War Dogs Memorial, while directly representing the War Dog Teams of the Vietnam War, honors all our nation’s war dogs and their handlers – past, present and future.

Thankful Thursday: Loving Fall

Lulu Sofie Oct 13

As the winds from Hurricane Karen swing back into the Mid-Atlantic, we are saying good-bye to the unusually hot Fall, and hello to more seasonable October weather (cold and wet).  We have been very thankful for the added warmth that has allowed us to run around the river for a longer time and I am sure that the boating people were happy for extra days at sea.  But now, with the dark mornings and the shorter days, it seems only right that the leaves actually fall to the ground, and that the earth begin her closure toward the cold months.  I am a Fall person.  It has always been a time of introspection, of pulling in, of preparing for the long dark time, after harvest.  I love the colors, and the sound of the wind, and the cooler nights.  I can’t say that I like the darker days, but they do allow for warm fires in the fireplace and soup and hot tea.  Thank you, Great Spirit, for all the wonders of the universe that we are able to enjoy, every day.  And, thank you for Fall.

I’m also thankful that Louise is healing well and that Sofie is staying out of the rose bushes.

7.4.13 Thankful Thursday: America The Home of the Free

I am thankful for my freedom.  For the people (and animals) that help keep me safe.  For the ability to speak my mind and believe what I believe, even if it is different than what other American’s believe.  Today, the 4th of July, we celebrate our independence and freedom.
