Happy Veterans Day!
The way this government treats our brave Veterans is at the very least shameful and more on the order of criminal. Illegal Aliens are given more benefits and treated better than our own brave Veterans. Of course there are more of them that can vote!
It is Wednesday and that means I have black and white images for you today. I found this wonderful old 1948 – 52 Ford pickup setting at the end of a farmer’s drive and had to turn around and photograph it. This old guy has seen some rough use but my guess is the owner got a lot of value for his money.
I came across this pickup last Sunday as I was wandering through the countryside. I never know what i might find when I’m out on the road. Jeanne is convinced that she is going to get a call from law enforcement some day saying that they pulled me from a ditch and she needs to come get me. 🙂
My Dad always bought Chevrolet products. He wouldn’t be caught dead driving a Ford but he loved them because there was a time when their quality was really bad and since he had a vehicle repair garage he enjoyed the business they gave him.
That’s it for today. Remember that we are the land of the Free because of the Brave men and women who gave so much for us all.
Thanks for stopping by the blog. Enjoy your day and be careful.
Happy Veterans Day!
One of the advantages of working for a financial institution is that I get some holidays that many times the private sector does not. Today is one of those days.
I watch the American Hero Channel when I watch TV and they have a very appropriate tag line when they do channel identification. “Home of the free because of the brave.” I am in awe of the sacrifice so many have made over the decades for our right to be free. Since the beginning of time nations have tried to conquer other nations. Men and women have fought and died for hundreds of years and yet today we seem no closer to being able to live in peace than since the beginning of time.
Before I went to visit the trails at the Mines of Spain I stopped by a little place by the river. I was lucky that a barge was moving South at the time and I was able to capture this image.
No particular subject to this image. I just found the objects sticking out of the water to be interesting. I hope you enjoy it.
I meet with the eye surgeon this morning. Hopefully he will have some news and projections about the condition of my eye. I do notice a slight improvement this morning so that is encouraging.
As I write this blog it is snowing out and pretty heavily at that. The birds are on the ground picking up discarded seed from the snow-covered ground. That is not a sight I’m ready to see. 😦
Thanks for stopping by the blog. Enjoy your day and thank a veteran for your freedom. Be careful.
