Seems they have attracted a new sweetheart.

Anzac (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) celebrations take place in communities throughout Australia-remembering the comradeship and sacrifices of the Australian military.
This photo is of an Australian soldier I took during the ceremony in Sydney, Australia.
and it’s only Monday morning…..this should be a very interesting week.
Forget the past.
Face the present.
We are mortals.

but this was part of “my gang“ growing up.
Just a few of my cousins and I wearing the same crazy
Yes we were crazy, yes we were strange, but hey it was in our blood.
If you had crazy cousins you had crazy times.
Some of my cousins by the dozens.
It is April and seems everyone is either working out in the yard or taking pictures of their Spring flowers.
Here is a photo taken today in my garden before the rain.
Azaleas in the front-’Knockout’ Shrub Roses in the back.
those we go back to.
There are a few moments in your life when you are truly and completely happy.
You remember to give thanks and this was one of those moments.
